Granola Bars

Replace Your Current Granola / Cereal Bars

There are hundreds of varieties of granola or cereal bars on the market. Most of them are marketed as nutritious but when you read the label, you realize that they are not. As a general rule, if you can’t pronounce the ingredients on the labels, it’s probably not good to eat. I pack a granola bar in my boys lunch everyday for them to eat during snack recess. Now that I have found these gems, I can’t believe I used to feed them the other ones.  (Mother’s guilt)

The following bars make gluten-free and dairy-free (or vegan) versions. Be sure to read the labels to confirm that the flavor you have chosen meets your dietary requirement. The bars are usually sold individually in most stores and range anywhere from 25% to 50% more per bar depending on where you shop. Paying the extra few cents is worth it knowing that it will keep behaviors stable.

However, now that I am aware of these brands, I check the market whenever I go to see if they are on sale. When they are, I stock up.  I have also been told that if you arrange with a store manager to buy them by the box or case, they can offer you a better price. I haven’t ventured into “case buying” yet but some of you with more children might want to look into that and share with us how that works. Also, consider going to the websites of these brands. There, you may be able to sign up to receive coupons via email.

If you can’t find these brands at local markets in your area, clicking on the images below will take you to Amazon where you can buy them online.  Let me know what you think. :)

    If you get your Dr. To “prescribe” in writing that you need to eat gf you can claim a tax break on the difference in price you pay from non gf and gf products. Just an FYI.
