I'm a huge fan of granola bars but, as we all know, these may be the most unhealthy kind of snacks. There are a lot of brands out there, hundreds of flavors, different textures and all trying to lure our attention by developing marketing strategies to draw us in.
What if I'd tell you that you can have granola bars that are really good for you?
I've recently came to know Junkless Granola Bars. It's actually a funny story because it was just so random! I usually take a long time when I go to the supermarket because I'm always looking for new products, new options, figuring out the brands that I'm usually not aware of. This time I was on the cereal aisle (FEAR!!!) and I focused on the granola bars. I found this brand and brought one bar to try it out. Really, as soon as I tried it I decided to reach out to the brand and tell them that I had seen the priducts and that they were exactly what I was looking for!
I emailed the company, which is a startup called Simply Eight LLC and they were very happy about collaborating with the blog so I could let you know a bit more about their products.
Junkless bars are better-for-you bars that are minimally processed, non GMO Project Verified and contain no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives,
Ernie Pang used to work on marketing for Kellog's came up with the idea for these granola bars after he and his son were grocery shopping. His son asked about the endless list of hard-to-pronounce ingredients on the side panel of a frozen food product. Ernie thought that there had to be a better way!
The brand is committed to offer great tasting and safe products without the most common undesirable ingredients:
There are four different flavors so each one can have a favorite one! Each granola bar has calories and only 5/6 grams of sugar. Compare that to the dozens of grams of sugar that other similar products from other brands have and just by that you know you'll be making a better choice. Read through the whole post and you'll be able to enter a giveaway to win a full box of Junkless Granola Bars from the flavor of your choice!
Chocolate Chip Junkless Granola Bars
Chocolate chips on my healthy minimally processed granola bar?? Yes, please!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip
Combining an all-American favorite with the chocolate chips was a master move! You'll get the kids to love this favor for sure. My son is crazy about peanut butter and chocolate chips so I guess this is heaven for him!
100% Real Strawberries
I love strawberries and this flavor is my favorite one! I think it's just amazing that you can have a granola bar and FEEL the strawberries! It's not a mushy mush of strawberry scented/flavored something...this is real fruit! I started carrying around one of these bars on my purse because I know that I'm always going to need a snack for that mid-morning period when I have to grocery shop or run some errands and this way I'm sure to get something tasty but healthy.
