Friday’s Find: Bakery on Main Granola Bars

Friday’s Find:  Bakery on Main Granola Bars

We all need grab-something-quick-and-go snacks. And while I’d love to tell you that I always snatch a handful of carrots or apple slices on the way out the door, sometimes the produce drawer is low or there’s no time to wash and slice.  That’s why I keep a basket of healthy, convenient, gluten-free snacks in a basket in the pantry.  My snack basket is usually filled with bars — Lara Bars, Think Thin bars, and now granola bars from Bakery On Main.  I try to stay away from prepackaged snacks, but in a pinch, they do the trick.

Last month Bakery On Main sent me a lovely assortment of their granola so that I could share my thoughts with you.

You can read my review of Bakery On Main’s granola here.

They also sent me these fantastic granola bars.

With only 170 calories a piece, 5-6 grams of fat, and whole nuts and fruit, these granola bars are tasty, chewy, and deliver a nice energy boost.  I tossed a few in my bag to inhale between teaching back-to-back fitness classes.  These granola bars weren’t just a nice treat, they were easy to digest and truly boosted my energy.  Bakery On Main offers their granola bars in three delicious flavors.  Of course, I LOVE the peanut butter and chocolate.  Who wouldn’t? But the other flavors are delicious as well.

But I’m even more impressed with a product that isn’t yet available in our stores.  Bakery On Main’s Soft and Chewy Bars can currently be ordered on-line, but they will will begin appearing on shelves in independent natural foods stores as well as major supermarket chains nationwide starting in April 2011.  So be on the lookout, because you are going to love them.

Each Soft & Chewy Bar contains between 130 and 140 calories, 3-4 grams of fat, and they are made with many of my favorite healthy ingredients — certified gluten-free oats, whole grains like amaranth and quinoa, and flax and chia seeds for a great source of Omega 3 and Omega 6 essential fatty acids.  But how do they taste?

You can be sure that I’ll be stocking my snack basket with Bakery On Main’s Soft & Chewy Bars.  Have you tried them yet?  What are your thoughts?

(Disclaimer:  I have no connection to nor was I paid by Bakery On Main. I did receive complimentary samples sent for me to taste and review. I do not give positive reviews just because the product was free but will always give my honest opinion.)

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, friend, fitness fanatic, foodie, high raw vegan, child of the King, and Mama Cat. I've made the transition from baking and cooking gluten-free to creating raw vegan recipes that are naturally gluten free. My gluten intolerance opened up my diet to a whole new world of nutritious plant-based foods. And now I have another challenge ahead...I'm moving to New York City! I look forward to Living Raw Vegan in the City and sharing my experience with you.
