I saw these breakfast bars at the store the other day, and they caught my eye. I saw that on the front of the box, it said that they were “fruit juice sweetened”. I doubled checked the ingredients, because a lot of times something will be sugar-free, but if you look in the back for the ingredients, it will have Splenda, or dextrose. Those are both worse than actual sugar. So, be careful when something says sugar-free!
I noticed that they are also made with oat flour and barley flour – no processed wheat. Since barley contains gluten, these bars aren’t 100% gluten-free, but they are wheat-free/egg-free/dairy-free/soy-free/ & nut-free. If you are highly allergic to any of these foods, you may not want to try these, since they are made in a facility that processes other foods that contain the above allergies.
These obviously aren’t GAPS-friendly, but my sisters got them and they said they tasted really good! They said you couldn’t tell there was no sugar in them, and they tasted really fruity-sweet.
Even though these aren’t in no way considered a “health” food, or “good for you”, these are still a lot better than other processed breakfast bars. These are good if you are looking for a little snack, but are in a rush and can’t make a healthy snack at home.
They also have other breakfast bar flavors, like raspberry, blueberry, cinnamon apple, cherry, and triple berry too!
