If you have been gluten-free for any amount of time, whether it be a few months or many years, you are well aware that a gluten-free granola bar can be hard to find. There are many “bar” products, but I have seen very few that are granola, mostly because gluten-free oats are expensive and have only become more readily available. Some companies make them without using oats at all, like the granola bars made by Bakery On Main. I found these the other day at Raisin Rack, my local health food store. They were not cheap, $5.99, but were on sale for $3.99, so I decided to give them a shot. I bought the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip variety, as PB & chocolate are 2 of my very favorite things. These bars were suprisingly very good. Both Jon and I have blown through a whole box in less than a few days. They aren’t like the Nature Valley Chewy Granola bars that I used to eat in my pre-GF days, but they were a nice treat. Not only are they GF, but they are casein free and dairy free, as well. They are 140 calories and 4.5 grams of fat per bar (no trans fats) and do have 1g of fiber per bar. A very nice grab & go treat to have on hand.
Also, Bakery On Main has 2 other varieties of the granola bars that are GF and bags of granola in many flavors. I actually have a bag of the Extreme Fruit & Nut in my pantry just waiting to be opened! I will make sure to write a review on it after both Jon & I try it out. 🙂
