Granola Bar Reviews

Honest Foods Baked Whole Food Bar

“Vegan, Whole Grains, Contains 190 mg Omega-3 fatty acids.” Honest-Foods.com

  • Apple Ginger. First ingredient: organic whole oats. This bar is chewy and oaty; there’s a definite ginger flavor with periodic bursts of dried apple. The sodium content is higher than for many other bars, but you won’t taste it. Recommended. Per bar (54g): 210 calories, 80 calories from fat, 1g saturated fat, no cholesterol, 180 mg sodium, 4g fiber, 14g sugars, 5g protein.
  • Cran Lemon Zest. First ingredient: organic whole oats. A good lemon presence, sparked with the tart taste of cranberries—a lovely flavor combination. As with Apple Ginger, it’s chewy; and there’s no salt taste despite relatively high sodium content. Recommended. Per bar (54g): 210 calories, 80 calories from fat, 1g saturated fat, no cholesterol, 180 mg sodium, 4g fiber, 14g sugars, 5g protein.

Kashi TLC Chewy Granola Bars

“All Natural, Nothing Artificial, 0g Trans Fat, 7 Whole Grains.” Certified kosher by The Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations. Kashi.com

  • Peanut Butter. First ingredient: hard red winter wheat. This very light-textured bar is crunchy as well as a little chewy. It’s lightly sweet with a slight peanut presence, but not much flavor overall. Per bar (35g): 140 calories, 45 calories from fat, 0.5g saturated fat, no cholesterol, 90mg sodium, 4g fiber, 5g sugars, 7g protein.
  • Dark Mocha Almond. First ingredient: hard red winter wheat. A dark coffee-colored bar with mini chocolate chips pressed into the top and a few chunks of almond visible. It has a nice coffee aroma but very little coffee flavor. The texture is light and crisp with a little chewiness. Per bar (35g): 130 calories, 35 calories from fat, 0.5g saturated fat, no cholesterol, 90 mg sodium, 4g fiber, 6g sugars, 6g protein.

Kudos Milk Chocolate Granola Bars

“Made with Whole Grains, As Much Calcium & Vitamin D as a Glass of Milk.” Certified kosher by The Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations. KudosBar.com.

  • Peanut Butter. First ingredient: granola. The bar is drizzled with milk chocolate and the bottom is dipped in it. I found this bar too sweet, with some peanut flavor but little chocolate taste. Per bar (22g): 100 calories, 35 calories from fat, 2g saturated fat, no cholesterol, 80mg sodium, 1g fiber, 8g sugars, 1g protein.
  • With Snickers Chunks. First ingredient: granola. Identical flavor characteristics to the Peanut Butter variety. Per bar (24 g): 100 calories, 35 calories from fat, 1.5 g saturated fat, no cholesterol, 85mg sodium, 1g fiber, 9g sugars, 1g protein.
