These gluten-free granola bars sent to me by Bakery on Main have pretty impressive ingredient lists, full of quinoa, amaranth, brown rice and certified gluten-free oats, all the high-protein ingredients you'd want to use if you were making your own bars. They also have no GMOs, no trans fats, and no cholesterol. With chia seeds and flax seeds, they're also a great source of Omega 3 and Omega 6 essential fatty acids.
My favorite was the chocolate almond, but all the flavors were great. The only downside to these healthy treats: their soft and chewy texture makes them a bit messy to eat on the go.
These might be perfect candidates for freezing before eating, just to give them a bit more firmness. Another thing I would suggest trying (especially with the chocolate almond) would be to leave it unfrozen and top ice cream with bits of it. Now that would be a match made in gluten-free heaven!

Note: I was not paid to write this review.

How exciting. I enjoy their granola, especially on top of frozen dessert treats...or i eat it dry, from the bag,instead of potato chips (when i'm able to resist.)

the chocolate almond has a real candy bar flavor to forget it's healthy stuff!

I wonder if it's possible to buy these online somewhere. Have you checked around?
