There are so many snack bar options these days it can be downright overwhelming. But as we’ve mentioned in the past, many of these bars are simply glorified candy bars with some including almost a full day’s suggested amount of sugar – in just one bar! Also many have unnecessary additives most people would not cook with at home. Deciphering which are actually beneficial and which are simply rectangles full of fake ingredients touched up with sweeteners can be challenging. So today we want to make sure you know a bar that qualifies as “real food” for many different reasons, our lovely sponsor RXBAR!
Funny enough I was just at lunch with Shawn on our team (our Facebook and Pinterest moderator, hey Shawn!) and she was telling me how much she loves RXBAR. She wanted to make sure to tell me to give her any extras that I might get in the mail from them, haha! It really is hard to find good options in the bar department so it’s hard to blame her for wanting to stock up!
About RXBAR + Flavors
RXBAR was started by two guys in Chicago who were seeking a whole food protein bar that they felt good about eating and that made then feel great after eating it. The result? Bars made with a simple blend of dates, nuts, and egg whites in a variety of flavors. So many readers are always asking for “cleaner” bar recommendations, and you’ll be amazed at how short the RXBAR ingredient list is while still providing 12 grams of protein in just one bar (thanks to the unique idea of using egg whites)!
In RXBARS you’ll find:
- No added sugars
- No Soy
- No Gluten
- No Dairy
- No GMO’s
They do contain natural flavors, which only come from essential oils that are extracted directly from the whole food ingredients themselves. For instance, the natural blueberry flavor in their blueberry bars comes directly from the essential oils of a blueberry.
RXBAR comes in a variety of flavors, but I asked my daughters to pick their favorites so I could snap a photo for you. They chose the Chocolate Coconut and Chocolate Sea Salt flavors (pictured). They also both agreed they love the Mint Chocolate. And I love that just because these are chocolate, that doesn’t mean they contain added refined sugar!
Here’s a full list of flavor options (+ they told us they’re launching three more new flavors soon!):
- Chocolate Sea Salt*
- Chocolate Coconut*
- Maple Sea Salt
- Peanut Butter
- Mint Chocolate*
- Coffee Chocolate
- Apple Cinnamon
- Pumpkin Spice (seasonal!)
*My daughters’ favorites!
Also, all flavors with the exception of Peanut Butter are Whole30 and paleo compliant.
One thing is for sure, these clean bars with their super simple packaging sure are handy to have in the bottom of your purse or in your glove box for whenever hunger strikes! We all know how hard it is to keep it real if you don’t do a little planning ahead – like having some of these on hand.
