If you head into a store like Huckleberry’s or Natural Grocers, the selection of energy bars can be a little overwhelming. There are a few, however, that stand out above the rest.
Kate’s Real Food bars is one of the few top-shelf options thanks to real food ingredients that are sourced organic, including nut butters, a wide range of fruits, and complex carbohydrates including organic oats and brown rice crisps. Kate’s Real Food bars check those boxes and they’re gluten free, soy free, and only use whole ingredients including natural honey with no artificial sweeteners or flavors.
These bars also score high for nailing a texture that lets you know you’re eating something healthy and delicious that’s made from real food ingredients, not unintelligible food-industry-created Frankenfoods that feel like they just oozed out of a test tube.
Kate’s bars range around 250-300 calories per bar, which is great for taxing, calorie-burning adventures or on-the-go meal replacements. There are also plenty of flavors to choose from, including the new dark chocolate mint as well as peanut butter dark chocolate, lemon coconut & ginger, and several more options.
