Still looking for a healthier alternative to stick in your children's Easter baskets this weekend? Then let me recommend The Gluten Free Bar!
Two celiac brothers, Elliott and Marshall Rader, believed in a better gluten-free bar. Sick of cardboard taste and hard-to-understand ingredients, they set out on a mission to create a bar that tasted awesome and was good for them too. The three pillars of importance, which they set for themselves when starting the process, was that the bar needed to be 1.) Delicious, 2.) High in protein and fiber to keep them feeling full, and 3.) Made with pure and simple gluten-free ingredients. It was a labor of love between the brothers and a pastry chef, and in 2010, The Gluten Free Bar was born.
The brand’s basic name and kraft-paper packaging reflects what is inside the bar: transparent ingredients that are easy to understand. Made in-house at the company’s own dedicated gluten-free facility, The Gluten Free Bars are simple, which is what makes them so special. There are no fillers or additives, and the bars are made with all-natural and GMO-free ingredients, 70% of which are certified organic.
From toasted cashews and Virginia peanuts to certified gluten-free oats, crisped brown rice, and dried cranberries, the bar’s wholesome ingredients are treats for the taste buds. The flavors include: Cranberry toasted almond, chocolate peanut butter, peanut butter, coconut cashew crunch, dark chocolate coconut, and oatmeal raisin. An ideal breakfast or anytime snack, the bars are chewy and moist on the inside and feature a lightly toasted crunch on the outside. The result is a texture and overall taste experience that is incredibly satisfying and memorable.
The Gluten Free Bar provides a good source of fiber and a complete source of protein derived from brown rice and pea protein (10-12 grams!). The bars are also low in sodium; sweetened with agave nectar, brown rice syrup, and dates instead of added sugar; and completely free of wheat, soy, cholesterol, trans fat, casein and dairy.
These are a great grab-n-go snack when I am busy and I love knowing that there are no GMO ingredients and that they are mostly organic! They taste great, they are nice and soft and the whole family can enjoy them!
