LEMON-BLUEBERRY MUFFINS AND PURE BARS

Today I Made:
LEMON-BLUEBERRY MUFFINS for BREAKFAST.
Small blueberry muffins with a hint of lemon zest then drizzled with lemon powered sugar glaze.
The original recipe is NOT vegan, but I used Egg Replacer and soymilk instead of chicken eggs and cow's buttermilk.
Perfect with a hot cup of morning coffee.
So my husband and I fell in love with Mojo Bars a few months ago.
Unfortunately they were affected by the peanut recall.
So we've been without protein bars since.
We agree with Veggie girl, Pure Bars are by far superior than any other bar out there.

Cliff Bars are way too sweet,
Mojo Bars, recalled and are more like candy bars.
Kashi bars, no comment.
Larabars, too sweet and not organic.

Last week, we went to our local Trader Joe's and were lucky enough to find the CHOCOLATE BROWNIE and CHERRY CASHEW bars.
We tried both and instantly fell in love.
The texture was perfectly soft and full of flavor.
We both preferred the CHOCOLATE BROWNIE.

Then last night while at Whole Foods, we came across the CHOCOLATE CHIP TRAIL MIX .
So now we have a new flavor to try.
They also had the APPLE CINNAMON and CHERRY CASHEW.
But no WILD BLUEBERRY.

I urge everyone to try these bars.
Why?
Because they are ORGANIC, use all natural ingredients. use dates and agave nectar instead of cane sugar, and they taste delicious.
At $2.39, they are pretty pricey, but you do get what you pay for.

THANKS VEGGIE GIRL!!!

I agree with you on the Clif bars, most are WAY too sweet! I can only eat half at a time.

LOVE the fruit and nut dipped mojo w/ vanilla. But yes it's more like candy.

Larabars! I love them but the sugar content is SUPER high!!

Purebars are just right =)

i buy the purebars from amazon and they are like 1.70 or something a piece i think when you choose subscribe and save. i LOVE the chocolate brownie...it keeps me from baking cookies and satisfies my cravings for only 200 healthy calories!

I don't think they sell those over here (UK) but they sound good!

The muffins look good, I haven't made blueberry muffins in forever!

I bought a few of the Pure bars after reading your recommendation. I don't eat bars very often, but I do keep some on hand for "emergencies". I am looking forward to trying them, thanks for the review.

Your blueberry muffins look fabulous!
