Earnest Eats - Baked Whole Food Bars

When I was looking around Whole Foods in Seattle for a new bar, I came across these beautifully packaged bars from Earnest Eats.  The packaging is what first caught my eye as they are packaged in clear wrappers so you can see the beauty of the bars inside.  

But, not only do they look good, they are good for you too.  All of the flavors have the same base ingredients of organic whole oats, almond butter, cane syrup, brown rice syrup, and oat bran. Almond butter is a superfood ingredient that imparts rich flavor while also being a heart-healthy monounsaturated fat. Each bar is 100% natural, vegan, wheat-free, whole grain and provides at least five grams of protein, four grams of fiber and 190mg of omega-3s in each serving.  Oh, and did I mention, they taste great too?!  They are soft and chewy yet oh so succulent.
There are four flavors of the whole food bars: chocolate peanut butter, almond trail mix, cran lemon zest, and apple ginger. If I had to pick a favorite, it would be the cran lemon zest. There is something truly amazing about a lemon-flavored whole food bar with cranberries and nuts sprinkled throughout. 

But, the other bars are good too! The choco peanut butter bar has chunks of peanuts and chocolate chips. The almond trail mix is dense, but chewy. And the apple ginger bar has chunks of apple with ginger spice. 

I recommend giving these a try. These bars would be a great, filling snack for a hiking trip or any kind of road trip where good, healthy snacks are not abundantly available.  And for about $1.50 each, they are reasonably priced. If you can't find them at your local grocery store, you can also order them online by clicking here.
