I used to eat a Nature Valley Granola Bar everyday for breakfast on my way to school so these Low Carb Bars bring back all the great memories of my childhood! We used simple, whole ingredients to recreate our favorite high carb bar and nailed it on the first try. This recipe was inspired by Stoka Bars so definitely check out their products if you’re looking a quick grab and go snack.
How Do These Hold Up To Other Low Carb Snack Bars?
You may be asking yourself the question of how these compare to pre-packaged ones. Although ones you can buy online or in store may have the convenience factor that these don’t because no baking is required, the ingredients and macros are a little questionable. Let’s take a look:
- Quest Bars use a lot of fiber and are higher in total carbs.
- Atkins Lift Bars also use a lot of fiber along with sucralose for the sweetener.
- Keto Bars are going to be your best option, but they still use a little more erythritol than we like to see.
That all being said, if you take just a little time over the weekend to make a double or triple batch of these low carb bars you will not only have a great snack for the week, but you can pack them in your kids’ lunch boxes! You’ll know exactly what is going into these bars and you’ll feed great about eating them.Overall, these bars are lower in carbs (most of them coming from whole ingredients) and they will satisfy that crunch craving that no other bar can.
