I have always loved cooking and would prefer to spend every waking moment in the kitchen. I am an experimenter, too. I see a recipe as a suggestion rather than a hard and fast rule. This philosophy does not always guarantee a foolproof meal, but the journey is part of the fun.
Le Bars were started in the spring of 2015 when I was looking for an alternative to my usual yogurt for breakfast. I had just visited a friend who inspired me by making her own granola bars. So I came home, looked in my pantry, and voila! A Le Bar was born. So many of today's granolas and breakfast bars are packed with sugar and other refined ingredients. Le Bar is all-natural. The only sweeteners are dried fruits and pure maple syrup.
I thought Le Bar was pretty tasty, but I needed other opinions. I shared with my husband, who loves food that's packed with sugar, flour, and not-so-good-for-you fats. He, too, loved Le Bar. I knew I was on to something then! I shared with our families and countless friends, and everyone loved it--even the people I thought would be deterred by the healthiness of Le Bar.
Food is my love language, and I hope you love Le Bars!

Le Bar is committing 10% of its profits to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Nashville. With chapters all around the world, Ronald McDonald House provides low-cost housing for families whose children are receiving treatment at a nearby hospital. The RMHC gives families a "home away from home." Families do not have to worry about the expense of a hotel room for an extended amount of time and are able to be within walking distance of the hospital. The Nashville Chapter requests a donation of $15 per night, but since most families cannot afford that, the House relies on donations.
