New Cappuccino Larabars (giveaway)

Oh my chocolate stars.

Yesterday was my blog’s busiest day ever.

I guess everyone really liked the Homemade Nutella!

A large portion of the visits are apparently coming from facebook and twitter, which must mean people are sharing my page with friends—I’m so incredibly grateful to everyone who’s ever shared my page! Without your amazing continued support, Chocolate-Covered Katie would not exist. Thank you!!

To show my thanks…

cappuccino larabar

A few weeks ago, these bars showed up on my doorstep:

The new Larabar flavor: Cappuccino.

To be honest, I still like their chocolate flavors best! (Chocolate Jocalats and Cookie Dough Larabars are my favorites.) So I thought I’d pay it forward with these coffee-flavored bars, offering the uneaten ones up in a giveaway: I’ll send a bar to each of two winners.

This giveaway is now closed.

Congrats to:

  1. Stephanie says

    Although I love both kinds of recipes, I would say that I’m currently in a total breakfast funk, so some new ideas would definitely be appreciated!

  2. Cathleen says

    How about a savory breakfast? There always seems to be sweet, and I suppose that savory breakfast is just totally against a dessert blog, but I like breaky suppers! Please satisfy my poorly timed breakfast cravings!

  3. Lori Z. says

    I’ve been looking for these and haven’t found them anywhere around me yet!
    I’d rather a breakfast recipe – looking for new ideas for my kids.

  4. Lucy says

    Breakfast 🙂 Oh and i showed my non-healthified friend your nuttela recipie (She loves that stuff, like no other) and she said she would give it a try so we are making it today!

  5. Brittany *Sparkles* says

    Umm.. BOTH! Dessert for breakfast! lol I would love to see a healthier version of a pastry-like dough or a pastry 🙂

    Mmm I’m a coffee fiend so cappuccino sounds delish 🙂

    And the nutella post was amazing! first thing I did yesterday was forward it on!

  6. Mindy @ Clueless Nut says

    I love all of your recipes and have tried a few, and I would love to see a breakfast recipe on tomorrow’s post.

    The ingredients for the homemade Nutella is on my grocery list. My mama eats Nutella every morning, so I’d love to make a healthier version.

  7. Erin says

    I would love to see another breakfast post! I’m always looking for a healthy and seemingly sinful way to start my day 😉

  8. Louice says

    I already like you on Facebook (Louice Johansson)! As for what I would rather like, I have to say a breakfast recipe! My breakfasts would be so bland if it wasn’t for you, so I would love some more to spice up my breakfasts. 🙂

  9. Kelly says

    I need a breakfast recipe…bought steel-cut oats for the first time and I am not sure what to do with them to make them delicious 🙂

  10. Jesse (OutToLunchCreations) says

    I would like to see a breakfast recipe that can be prepared the night before or made in under 5min in the morning. I would also love to see a savory chocolate dish. I have seen savory dark chocolate entrees on TV but I have never tried or made one.

  11. Kara says

    I love your blog! Thanks for all the yummy recipes! I vote for breakfast, I had your Pumpkin Boatmeal this morning – yummm!

  12. KT says

    I want to see a delicious BREAKFAST recipe! I’ve become an opener at my job (Starbucks, opening at 5am) and breakfast is slowly but surely becoming my favorite meal of the day. It’s definitely a plus to becoming a morning person!

  13. Kira says

    I’d love to see a breakfast recipe, breakfast is my favourite meal of the day 🙂
    And would go nicely with the idea of cappuccino flavoured larabars! Yum!

  14. Aisatsana says

    Breakfast. …and thanks so much for writing your blog. My fiance and I eat vegan as fast for our church for about a third of every year, and so many of your recipes have been life savers! We especially enjoy the lentil curry you posted here a while back.

    • Claire says

      Hey, that’s a really cool idea. I’d never thought of that before. But then again, I don’t know how much of a sacrifice it would be for me to go vegan, since I love veggies so much. Maybe sugar-free (Sweets in general) or something would be a better fast for me!

  15. Claire says

    Breakfast recipe! And for the record, I pinned your nutella post yesterday, and got like 6 repins in 10 minutes! I guess people really did like it!

  16. Kasia Dutch says

    Hmmmm, dessert or breakfast? Dessert or breakfast?

    How about… Dessertfast? Or Breaksert?

    Yes, I like the sound of that. Breakfast and decadent dessert rolled into one.

  17. Anonymous says

    Dessert!!!! Thanks for all your wonderful receipes Katie. I’m not even a vegan, but i love visiting your blog. My favourite receipe is the ‘1 minute chocolate cake’!!!!!

  18. Stephanie B. says

    Of course I love your breakfast recipes, but I tend to be more adventurous with dessert recipes, so I’d like to see a dessert recipe tomorrow!

  19. Ann-Marie says

    Dessert! Thank you for your wonderful receipes Katie. I’m not even a vegan, but i love visiting your blog. My favourite receipe is the ‘1 minute chocolate cake’!!!!!

  20. Jenn says

    It’s so hard not to say dessert because your desserts are always amazing, but I’m curious to see what ideas you have for breakfast. So I’d have to say I’d like to see a breakfast recipe post tomorrow.

  21. Jana Lee says

    Hi Katie!
    Please post a breakfast recipe! I’m a new vegan as often struggle with breakfast food!! I get bored easy! Thanks!!

  22. Susie says

    Ooh, breakfast post, please! Never can have too many breakfast recipes, considering I could eat breakfast for every meal ^_^

  23. Heleen says

    Mhmm, I pretty much enjoy ANYTHING coffee-flavoured so these can’t be bad! Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, I could eat breakfast all day long (kind of like you with chocolate, I imagine?), so I vote for a breakfast recipe tomorrow!

  24. Molly says

    Oh how I adore Cappuccino LaraBars!

    Since breakfast and dessert are my two favorite things, this is a tough decision! But I think in the end, a breakfast recipe would be quite nice 🙂

  25. Ashleigh says

    Normally I would vote for a dessert, but I really am feeling that a breakfast post would be good. Maybe one with chocolate? Now I’ve got to find those cappuccino larabars somewhere around here. I just stocked up on other flavors as the natural food store had a .99 sale! And the jocalots were 1.07! What a great deal. I think I got 20 larabars!

  26. Megan says

    I am hitting up Whole Foods ASAP to get my hands on that Lara Bar! I am up for a breakfast recipe tomorrow because I love breakfast!

  27. chocolate girl's chocolate mom says

    Thanks for the yummy nutella yesterday.

    I love coffee and I love larabars … cappuccino larabars sounds like a deadly combination!

    I eat oats every day for breakfast. Please inspire me to try something else for a change.

  28. Laci Kavanagh says

    LOVE Larabars! Would love to try these!! I already LIKE you on FB and have tried many of your recipes- Genius Blondies is a fave!

  29. Kim Brown says

    I appreciate your dairy free recipe’s. My daughter has enjoyed many of your recipe’s and I am thankful she found you so we can have options for her to eat yummy things!

  30. Angela says

    I had a Coconut Cream Pie Larabar yesterday (YUM!) I just got introduced to Larabars this past fall so I’d be excited to try another flavor 😀 Thanks for all of your yummy posts by the way (tried out cookie dough dip–with dark chocolate PB dreams–it was excellent!)

  31. Jess says

    Mm…. well, dang. You just named my two favorite meals <3.

    Why not a 2-in-1? It's more fun making a breakfast that's fun and a little indulgent. Plus you seem to have a knack for making things both healthy and sweet (where I'm sorely lacking) c:

  32. Victor says

    Breakfast recipe please! While I do like my morning chocolate oatmeal, it would be nice with some variation to that. 🙂

  33. Lena says

    One of the main reasons why I look forward to the weekends is because I finally have time to make and indulge in a special breakfast (usually pancakes since they are my favorite :D) so I’m going to go with breakfast! 🙂

  34. Mariah says

    Breakfast! I’ve tried making a bunch of your desserts (and they are AMAZING!), but I haven’t tried a breakfast recipe yet!

  35. Annie Semlak says

    I would like a breakfast recipe 🙂 I am always looking for new ways to make breakfast in my dorm before classes 🙂

  36. Mushroomz says

    BREAKFAST! I do love my oats but a little change wouldn’t hurt (and if it’s an oatmeal recipe- I’ll have another flavor/idea to try!)

  37. Eri says

    I would love to see a new dessert recipe! Also, I am excited to say this is my first-ever post! I thought it was only fitting because I just finished eating a Peanut Butter Cookie Larabar (delicious!!!) and I can only imagine what the cappuccino ones taste like…

  38. Eri says

  39. Lauren says

    Breakfast please! Even before I started eating a vegan diet my breakfasts were boring, so I’d really like a fresh idea!

  40. Janice says

    I would love to see a new breakfast recipe!! This morning i tried the melted banana trick with my oatmeal and blended them in my magic bullet- plus a handful of spinach to give it a fun green color!- and it was DELICIOUS. Of course after i transferred it in a bowl, i put a spoonful of peanutbutter and microwaved it.. HEAVEN!!! Oh, and im following you in twitter and facebook!

  41. Shelby says

    Cappuccino’s are my favorite and I can’t wait to try to Larabar flavor! I vote that you post a breakfast recipe next because it is the best meal of the day!

  42. Briana says

    I tried my first choc cov.katie recipe last night: fudge babies. I liked them, had them for breakfast, too. Only one of my 3 kids ate and enjoyed it, however. I may try the cookie dough next.
    I’d love more dessert recipes.
    And, thanks for the give away.

  43. Sam says

    I’m going to vote for dessert because you can never have too many dessert recipes! Plus I’m going to be making one for family soon, so it might give me ideas. 🙂

  44. Whitney says

    Breakfast please! I LOVE your blog and all of your yummy recipes. My kids look forward to seeing which one I’m going to try next. Thank you for making the transition to eating healthier so easy on myself and my kids!

    • Maria : ) says

      ahh! i didn’t see the first post go through. so disregard the double comment about FACEBOOK and substitute it for my comment about TWEETING this info. thanks for your understanding : )

  45. Emily says

    I’ve never tried anything but the original Larabar; I’d love to try some others! Cookie dough sounds delicious, but I wouldn’t mind a Cappacino. 🙂
    Also, I love both breakfast and dessert, but since I’m always in need of new breakfast ideas, breakfast it is!

  46. natalie @ southern fit foodie says

    Those look awesome! The cookie dough lara bars are my favorite, too! I would love a new breakfast recipe!

  47. 91% Chocolate Lover says

    I vote breakfast! I picked up some shredded coconut and will try making coconut butter soon, to me coconut butter is breakfast-y.

  48. Gabby says

    Umm I make your “desert” recipes for breakfast all the time! So I guess a real “breakfast” recipe would be nice 🙂

  49. abeer says

    ummmmm…. DESSERT!!! lol what a silly question to ask!! no but really both recipes would probably end up amazing so whats the difference?? 🙂

  50. Irina @ ChocolaTeaTime says

    Breakfast all the way! It’s my favorite meal and I would always appreciate a new recipe to try out

  51. Lynh says

    Breakfast please! I love making my breakfasts more interesting – and if it’s sweet, it makes me feel slightly better about having “dessert” for breakfast!

  52. Jade C says

    Hmmm, I would have to say.. breakfast, please!! On that subject, I SO wish I had taken a picture of this mornings breakfast!! It was: Rooibos-infused oatmeal topped with a T each of your cookie-dough dip and peanut butter, with a side of frozen berries…. IT WAS SO GOOD!! Unfortunately I cannot repeat the process tomorrow morning as when I came home I ate the rest of the dip alongside chunks of banana – really nice :).
    Soooo, basically, what I’m saying is this: as it’s your fault my breakfast was so amazing this morning ((and the things that made it have now also been “destroyed”, please show me something as good that I can eat for my brekkie tomorrow :D!!
    Congrats on the Betta-Than-Nutella!!
    Jade C.

  53. Ashley says

    I tried one of these the other day and yum!
    I’d love to see a dessert as I’m obsessed with your dessert recipes lol

  54. ~Jessica~ says

    Breakfast recipe please! I made the GF breakfast pizza at the week-end and it was divine, so I’d love to see something that could match it in the brekkie department 😀


  55. kalah says

    i vote for breakfast. i am currently obsessed with the coconut drops in oatmeal with cacao nibs. would love to see what else you have up your sleeve!

  56. Mel Gibb says

    Wow 472 comments already!! I shared some of your recipes yesterday on pinterest. It is another form of social media – I am relatively new to it but you “pin” things like a recipe to a board and then others see what you have pinned and come along and re-pin it to their wall and it links back to your blog. It is quite addictive if you have not seen it – it is worth a look, Thanks for some healthy sweet treats. Mel

  57. Catalina Maya says

    Breakfast, please! 😀
    I’m sick of getting hungry at 10:30 every morning at school–and then having to wait two hours to eat! So, a voluminous or hearty breakfast would really be appreciated!

  58. Catalina Maya says

    Oops–I typed the wrong email… but I’ll just copy my previous comment:

    Breakfast, please! 😀

  59. Mary says

    Those look absolutely wonderful! 🙂
    And Dessert! Unless it is a dessert-like breakfast you had in mind. Which I’m thinking there is a good chance of this 😉

  60. Raven says

    I am so excited to try the new larabar flavor. It sounds amazing. So hopefully I will win so I can experience it sooner.

    I would love to see a new breakfast recipe! I’ve been looking for some new ideas lately.

  61. Stephanie says

    As much as I love your creative breakfast foods, dessert is always better! My breakfast is pretty much the same everyday (peanut butter on a rye crackers) because I really can’t think enough to make anything else in the morning, but I like to have a different dessert(s) everyday.

  62. Aly says

    Hey Katie!! I think you are a dessert genius!!! But I’d love to see something for breakfast. I really try to watch the sugar intake, too. I know. CRAAAAZY!

  63. Elizabeth says

    Breakfast, please! I’ve been making your larabars, but using toasted almonds & coconut, with melted unsweetened chocolate instead of cocoa powder. Can’t. Stop. Eating. Them.

  64. lindsey smith says

    Those look amazing! I would love to see a breakfast recipe, something I can make fast as I’m running out the door 🙂

  65. Diana says

    Let’s see a dessert recipe. That’s what I came looking for tonight. I knew I could trust you to have something healthy to satisfy my chocolate craving tonight!

  66. Anna Lynn says

    Yum, I love me a good cappuccino, I’d love to try these!

    BREAKFAST! I love, love, love breakfast and your recipes are always fun to try!

  67. Sabrina Gunn says

    I actually would like to see TWO recipes tomorrow because I love your recipes so much! So the answer is BOTH! 😀

  68. Alicia L says

    I love your blog. Dessert and breakfast are fantastic. As a vegan runner who LOVES breakfast and dessert, your blog makes me so happy! Right now, I am trying eat to live, so I vote for BREAKFAST.

  69. Jennifer says

    I’m going to vote for a dessert recipe!

    But if I happen to win, please donate the bars to a food bank–I’m not a great lover of coffee-flavored anything and I am sure that someone can really use them more than I!

  70. Natalya says

    I just started reading your blog today, and while I’d love to win some Lara bars, I just had to write because all your recipes look so amazing and I have two in the fridge right now as we speak! Just to make sure I qualify if you do pick my comment… I’d like to see a breakfast recipe! Thanks 🙂

  71. Lauren H says

    How about a compromise: A breakfast recipe that tastes like dessert?! I immediately think of your delicious Red Velvet Pancakes -Boyfriend and I are so addicted to those!

  72. Carmen Oliver says

    I love your breakfast recipes!!! More Boatmeal, please! I usually make them into minis for a mid morning snack. Mmmmmm 😉

  73. mrsluckypants says

    My vote is breakfast. In fact I came to your site to search for a breakfast cookie to make for tomorrow morning.

  74. Tricia says

    I really liked that you made homemade Nutella! I totally miss Nutella, but I need to get a food processor first. I honestly don’t care if its a breakfast recipe or a desert recipe because I typically interchange the two. (Cookies for breakfast are the bomb!) But if I had to choose… I’d definately say a desert recipe 🙂

  75. Erica @ For the Sake of Cake says

    I’ve been dying to try these Larabars!

    How about a dessert recipe? I eat dessert for breakfast sometimes anyway! 🙂

  76. Rebecca says

    I would love to see a breakfast recipe tomorrow! I’ve been in a rut for new breakfast ideas and I always love making yours.

  77. Natasha says

    I have really wanted to try that flavor of larabar because i can’t find it at any grocery stores near me! I would love a breakfast recipe 🙂

  78. Shirley says

    Hi there! I have yet to see this or any of the new Larabar flavors in local supermarkets, so this is exciting! I’d love to see a breakfast recipe, if only because I love breakfast so much 🙂

  79. Jenny@HealthyMOChick says

    I’m totally going for a Breakfast recipe 🙂 And thank you for your page as well, I have a lot of people hop over and peek at my page directly from yours!

  80. Eleanor says

    I’d really like to see some more breakfast posts, because I’m so stuck in my breakfast ideas. I need some more inspiration, hence why I look to you for it 😉

  81. Kate says

    I’m into coffee these days, so the new Larabar is intriguing. I’d love to see more dessert recipes. Keep ’em coming, please!

  82. Stacia says

    I LOVE your posts and have thoroughly enjoyed every one of your recipes…. and I’ve been making a lot of them. I gave a friend some of the raw gingerbread men for watching my dog over Christmas and her husband has requested them for his birthday dessert. 🙂
    My vote for tomorrow would be a new breakfast idea.

  83. Lauren G says

    I love your dessert recipes, especially your blondies made with garbanzos!, but I’m hoping for a breakfast recipe.

  84. Shannon C. says

    I vote breakfast! Always looking for new ideas. 🙂 I’ve also seen your recipes posted on Pinterest, so maybe some new visitors are coming from there!

  85. Albizia says

    I think I need new ideas for breakfast because my breakfasts are getting a little boring these days. And, of course, I will be really happy if I can easily find the ingredients.

  86. Katie P says

    I cant tell you how much I love reading your blog. So inspiring and so many great recipes. Thank you!
    I’d love to see more breakfast recipes please!

  87. Ashley says

    Homemade Nutella….alright i no longer have to eat anything else!!! x) Hmmm how about a dessert disquised as breakfast? x)

  88. Hannah says

    Those look fantastic! Breakfast please! I love getting good ideas, it’s so hard when you are a busy student! Thanks!

  89. HealthFoodJunky says

    Katie, if it wasn’t for you, I would still be eating cold cereal for breakfast. Thanks to you, my breakfast palette has totally expanded. Breakfast gets my vote, though I absolutely love all your dessert recipes. Oh, and these bars look AMAZING!

  90. Taya says

    As a coffee lover and a larabar lover, I can’t tell you how much I’ve been wanting to try those!

    Breakfast please! I’ve been looking to switch things up in the b-fast department.

  91. Naomi says

    Yum! I can’t wait to try this new flavor. I’d rather breakfast! Savory if possible, yummy! I’m following on Twitter and FB too!

  92. Moni says

    Hi Katie! I really adore your blog and I have made a lot of your recipes which of course have been a huge success!! I would really love to see some more breakfast ideas from you ^_^

  93. Venna says

    It looks just awesome, so as your entire website! Must be a healthy snack especially during studies and exams – which I have to write right now … ewww
    Hugs and best wishes from Germany 😀

  94. Natalie Kaczmarczyk says

    Love Larabars and cannot believe I have NEVER seen this flavor! Ahhh! Would love something for brekkie 🙂

  95. Elizabeth says

    I just saw those at whole foods, been meaning to try them!! I would prefer a breakfast post, especially a dorm-room friendly one (I only have a microwave)!

  96. Corinne says

    Dessert and breakfast are interchangeable if you keep the ingredients wholesome and healthy! This is the first time I have heard of this cappuccino Larabar and I am a HUGE fan of them- especially the peanut butter one!! I’d LOVE LOVE LOVE to try this flavor…

  97. Martha says

    When I saw your Nutella recipe, I immediately grabbed my coworker, and both of us made different versions that night. We then brought them into work yesterday and had a Nutella-off with our two versions and the original. They turned out great! Thanks!

  98. Lorraine says

    I would like to see another dessert recipe. There can never be too many, in my opinion. I especially love chocolate & coffee together, so I would love to try the new Larabar.

  99. sharon pastor says

    i really love your breakfast recipes. And i must say my kids are a fan of yours 100 percent. They love oatmeal and are going to love this one!!! I look forward to more yummy breakfasts to share with my family.

    I also follow you on twitter and like your facebook page.

  100. Heather M. says

    Breakfast, please! I can’t get enough of your boatmeal & oatmeal recipes, but should probably change it up now and then with another breakfast idea!

  101. Rebecca says

    I am in love with your website! And I am telling everyone I can find! I am a new vegan and am so excited to have one place that I know everyone is OK! I have your cookies from today’s post in my oven as we speak. If the dough is any indication, they will be awesome! ( I subbed to soy nut butter-son with allergy, and honey for sweetness). I would love to see more of anything! Everything I have made-savory and sweet, have been amazing! Thank you for all you do!

  102. Cordelia says

    I would love to see a new breakfast recipe! Variety is great because I rarely have the same breakfast two days in a row (:

  103. Meghan @ Struggle Muffins says

    Paying it forward with treats is the BEST way to pay it forward 🙂 I vote for a breakfast recipe! Perhaps a cappuccino-inspired one?

  104. Andrea B. says

    Oh no, I hope I didn’t miss this! ((My internet was down yesterday 🙁 ))

    Anyways I always LOVE your dessert recipes… but I’m a huge breakfast food fan too (so much so that I often have a big bowl of chocolate oatmeal for dinner!!)
    Maybe a breakfast that tastes like a sinful dessert? 😉

  105. Jessica says

    I’d love to see more breakfast recipes! I eat breakfast for dessert so that would be killing 2 birds with 1 stone, right?? heehee…

  106. Shaina says

    Oh man! I tweeted & facebooked about larabar giveaway, but didn’t see the part about the post here!!! Glad you posted a breakfast recipe, that’s what I would have requested!

  107. Jaymie Miller says

    I have to admit… I’ve made these twice now. I used almond butter and banana, threw in a handful of dried cherry’s and some dark chocolate chips, and sweetened it with a squirt of agave. OMG To DIE For! My DH <3'ed them, and we ate all the first batch, so I woke up early and made them again for my Kiddo's this morning! Keep them coming! I love yummy healthy foods!

  108. CaraMarie says

    I can’t wait to try these…..I vote breakfast and I will say oatmeal raisin cookies are my FAVORITE dessert. Do you have any tricks to incorporate veggies into some of these treats?

  109. Victoria says

    I’d like to see a dessert recipe. I especially love how your recipes make small batches of cookies…it makes me feel less guilty when I consume the whole batch by myself. But then again, I’d love to see a baked french toast recipe for breakfast, too!

  110. Katelyn says

    Oooh I am going to try out these cookies right now! As much as I love desert, I am certainly in need of some good old breakfast inspiration! My vote is for breakfast. And those larabars look oh so good….

  111. Kelly Tibbetts says

    Definitely would love to see a breakfast recipe. I need some new ones! PLUS I love Larabars, would love to try the new flavor 😉
