Tasty New Gluten Free Granola Bars from Annie's Homegrown

If you're like our family, you're always looking for healthy, quick, gluten free snacks to grab when you're running from one activity to the next...something that holds up well in a purse or backpack -- or even in the car. 

Gluten free snack bars -- be they fruit and nut bars, protein bars, or traditional granola bars -- are a popular choice, and you probably remember me reviewing many brands here on this blog over the years. Our family likes most gluten free varieties we've tried, and fortunately, there seem to be new ones introduced all the time. 


One of the latest product introductions is the line from Annie's, also known for their delicious mac-n-cheese, both in gluten free and gluten varieties.  (Another Annie's favoite of ours are their Cocoa and Vanilla bunny-shaped cookies. They have a great flavor and are perfect for the Easter season! They also come in Ginger Snap flavor, which we haven't yet tried.) But back to the Granola Bars...

These are true "granola bars," as you remember them (the chewy, oat-based snack bars). There are two varieties -- Double Chocolate Chip, made with real mini chocolate chips, and Oatmeal Cookie, which has a cinnamon flavor and raisins. Although they're a bit on the small side, size-wise, it's not necessarily a bad thing, since one bar contains only 110 calories. And I love the fact that they hae no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives (things I've always tried to avoid in foods I buy for my kids). They're full of fiber and contain no high-fructose corn syrup, another plus! Another thing I noticed on their website (but it wasn't advertised on the box) is that they use only non-GMO ingredients, a HUGE plus in my mind. You'll also find most ingredients in their listing are organic. 

Another cool thing about these bars? They're crumb free...moms like me like that...less of a mess in the car! They come 5 to a box, and I'd suggest trying both varieties, since everyone has their own personal favorite! If you have any other favorite gluten free snack bars, we'd love to hear about them!
