I’m a snacker – always have been, always will be. I’ve been trying to find healthier options for snacking, and whilst I know there are better options out there, bars feel kind of like a treat to me. There’s just something ‘naughty’ feeling about them, even if they’re primarily made up from healthy foods. Here are some of the bars I’ve been enjoying lately!
Okay so actually the berry flapjack is my favourite – I just ate it before I remembered to take this photo. I’ve tried both the Berry Burst and Cocoa Chaos protein bars and they’re pretty filling as a snack. The texture takes a little to get used to, but they’re easy to eat on the go. I’ve only tried the Morning Berry flapjack but it is just to die for. Soooo good. Both kinds of Trek bar boast 10g of protein and are gluten, wheat and dairy free. What more could you ask for?! They’re also £14.99/£15.95 for 16 bars online, so that’s not bad. I bought mine in Holland & Barrett when they were buy one get one half price though!
A recent discovery of mine. I mean, I’ve known about them for years, but never tried one until recently. I’m loving the Chocolate Chip one. With 9 grams of protein, these bars are also very filling and great on the go. I mostly eat this kind of thing when I need a quick breakfast. They also contain B6 and B12, so that’s always a plus right?
Frutina Real Fruit Snack
These are just 100% dried fruit. No added sugars, preservatives or other ingredients – just the fruit that each flavour is – and they’re free from wheat, dairy, nuts and gluten. Not really filling, but good for when you just need something quick to fill that void. And I’ve also just found a pack of 30 for £12.60 on Amazon… Not bad, not bad at all! I really like the taste of these – though the toughness did surprise me at first. I take these to work a lot.
