Healthy Snack Bars for Girls On-the-Go

Healthy Snack Bars 2016

So, if you were to follow me around all day…you would immediately know that I have to be snacking and/or sipping something, like literally, all day long.

Seriously though, here’s how the line up usually goes…

I have about 3 liquids with me at all times — usually water, cold-brew coffee, and herbal or green tea, kombucha, or some sort of detox drink. I also usually have a piece of fresh fruit with me — most recently it’s been red grapes — I’ve been OBSESSED for some reason. I always have a handful of almonds close by, and finally some kind of snack bar.

But not just any snack bar — a healthy snack bar. Because let be real, there are some out there that are total JUNK. 

When I go for snack bars, I tend to look at the ingredients to choose what I will buy. If I can’t pronounce it, or it’s longer than my entire grocery list — I won’t buy it.

Beyond the ingredients, I personally am not too worried about the amount of sugar, or carbs, or fat that they have — I just try to stick to natural and whole ingredients as much as possible.

With my snack bar knowledge and expert taste testing , I decided to put together a list of some of my current favorites!

Health Warrior Chia Bar – These little superfood bars are awesome! There only 100 calories and the very first ingredient on the pack is chia seeds. They are packed with healthy omega-3s and lots of fiber. There are 9 different flavors and they are ALL delicious — but my favorite would have to be the Dark Chocolate Cherry!! {{ buy here }}

KIND Bars – This is my absolute “go-to” favorite! I love the Dark Chocolate Sea Salt ones the most, and love how satisfying they are with all the nuts. Plus, they always seem like a treat with the chocolate! You can also find these at a ton of places, and even at many gas stations when you are truly on-the-go — you can even try making your own, too if you want! {{ buy here }}

Larabars – Larabars have also been a long time favorite of mine and with so few ingredients, I always feel great about eating them. I love the Apple Pie, Cherry Pie, and Chocolate Brownie. These can also be found at many grocery stores and convenience stores. {{ buy here }}

That’s It Fruit Bars – I found these about 2 years ago and love how simple they are. They are purely just two dried fruit in each bar. I really love the apple & pineapple combo, or the apple mango one! They are super satisfying for when you have a little sweet tooth too! {{ buy here }}

Perfect Bars – These are really awesome bars that you can find in the refrigerated section of Whole Foods or health food stores. They have absolutely no preservatives and are super flavorful. They even have little mini bars you can get too, for when you just need a little snack! {{ buy here }}

Simple Squares – This little bars are Paleo, organic, non-GMO, and gluten free — so if any of those are your style, these bars are perfect for you. They are only made from 5 ingredients and have 6 grams of protein! They have a bunch of flavors, but I really love the coffee flavor, and the coconut one — obviously! {{ buy here }}

RXBAR Whole Foods Bars – These are still pretty new to me, but I’m so glad I found them. They have been BLOWING UP my Instagram feed so I finally was able to find some and try them. Again, super simple ingredients — but so tasty! And I love they they have some extra protein from egg whites! {{ buy here }}

Curate Snack Bars – These aren’t your average snack bar flavors — Curate Bars mix it up with fancy ingredients like balsamic vinegar, Marcona almonds, or mission figs, and each bar has 10 or less ingredients, 200 calories or less, and 6 grams of protein. The Chocolate Hazelnut is to die for, and the Marcona Almond & Apricot one is not far behind! {{ buy here }}

GoMacro Macrobars – This bar doesn’t just taste great but is also vegan, filled with macrobiotics, AND gives back to the community. GoMacro focuses on wholesome food, eating local, organic and plant-based when possible and giving back to their community. They also help to provide jobs to local farmers in their home state of Wisconsin! They have a bunch of flavors to choose from too — I like the Morning Harvest flavor with apples and walnuts. {{ buy here }}

goodnessknows snack square – These are also a new find for me. A few weeks ago I was invited to an event with goodnessknows to celebrate National Bike to Work Day…and since then I have a new go-to snack bar! I love the Cranberry Almond Dark Chocolate flavor! — P.s. Even Nik (mister picky-eater) likes them!! {{ buy here }}

Healthy Snack Bars

I buy most of these on Amazon Prime — in LOVE with Amazon Prime — I even have a few of them on a subscription (you can “subscribe & save” up to 15% off certain items — it’s amazing!) so I never have to worry about running out of snacks!

Many grocery stores like Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, or you local health food store will carry at least a few options as well! 

What are you favorite healthy snack bars? Let me know in the comments, I love trying new ones!
