Well, what is your goal, calorie-wise, for a breakfast meal?

A blueberry Larabar, 8 ounces of whole milk, and a large orange is over 400 calories... lots of fat, lots of protein... seems pretty complete as-is.

You could pair it with yogurt (not in the yogurt) or a hardboiled egg. Or an apple with pb. (or another nut butter.) I'm not sure of your breakfast calorie goals.

I thought about that, but I don't feel like the texture will work for me.

THIS is why I generally don't do cereal bars and the like for breakfast, but I just can't seem to motivate myself to cook anything this morning, and I figure one day won't kill me.

I've never had a Larabar so sorry if this is a bad suggestion, but could you break it up into pieces and use it as a topping for Greek yogurt?

I agree, but it's too hot for a hot beverage of any kind right now

Larabars are awesome aren't they? I adore those things!!

Sometimes I find having a hot beverage will help make something more filling.

I generally don't like having granola bars or the like for breakfast, and prefer to save them as snacks/desserts on rare occasions, but I have a pretty hectic morning, and I just want to give myself a little break.

I'm just wondering how I should go about making a Larabar into a more complete breakfast. I already plan on pairing it with a cup of milk and a piece of fruit (probably an orange), but that still doesn't seem like enough.

Honestly, what I really want for breakfast is whole wheat toast (even waffles) with maple almond butter, banana slices (I'll eat any excess banana on the side) and a glass of cold milk, but I don't have the ingredients for that (ie: the almond butter and bananas). I just figure I can have a Larabar for breakfast ONCE.
