We know people love their energy bars and supplements, heck we do too (when appropriate). But, all to often it seems like a guilt free way to get a candy bar in without calling it a candy bar. We have picked a fairly wide range of bars from well known brands, to some not so well known brands (yet), to help you make better choices. This is a hard area for many to navigate as so often companies will make claims that are very far fetched when reviewing the ingredient list. It can be difficult to really know if you are actually getting something healthy and beneficial or something masked as that while not improving or even hurting your health. The amount of energy bars are endless as are supplement powders. We will continually be updating this list on new bars & supplements these brands come out with as well as new brands we come across. We only recommend products we can stand behind and use ourselves…make sure to click on the brands to learn more and see which bars we recommend – note – some of these brands do a great job with one line of products (or certain bars within a line) but we would not eat or recommend other bars they make based on the ingredients used. We are only presenting products that we feel deserve a rating of four stars or above….after all you deserve the best right!?

Of course we always recommend eating whole foods whenever possible or making your own (click here to find our recipes for some nutrient packed bars you can make yourself without any added oils or sugars…just natural goodness) but we also realize sometimes it is just not possible and you need a little help along the way. Also, it is very hard to find energy bars or protein bars without some added syrup or some form of oil. While we do not recommend regular/daily consumption of these ingredients that is something that generally comes with the territory of energy bars. So eat in moderation and check out our picks below.
