The Gluten-free Bar Gets #nimatested

Gluten-free Bar

The Gluten Free Bar was founded by two brothers  — Marshall and Elliot — one has a severe gluten intolerance, and the other was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2008. This company takes their gluten-free products seriously: they make everything in their own zero waste facility, and are committed to filling their products with healthy, quality ingredients.

The Gluten Free Bar is also a certified B Corp, which means they “meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose”.

Their products are offered in stores across the U.S. But if there isn’t a store near you, or you’re just looking for a very specific bar you can order online on their website. Scroll down to see which products we #nimatested!

Testing tip: Because these bars are so dense – probably because they’re packed with so much protein and nutrients – make sure you only take a pea sized sample. Also make sure you add a little bit of water to the capsule (a drop or two should be enough) to help with the mixing process and avoid clogging.

Notes: Great taste! The cranberry flavor wasn’t overpowering, and the crispy bits of toasted almonds made for a nice crunch.

Notes: I liked this one a lot! However the coconut is definitely strong, so if you aren’t a big fan of coconuts I’d pick something else.

Notes: Overall the flavor was pretty good – a little less coconut heavy than the dark chocolate coconut bar. I was surprised how crunchy this one was!

Notes: I didn’t get a chance to try this one, but I had the dark chocolate hazelnut bites (below) and they were amazing!

Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Bites

Notes: These were by far my favorite! It feels like you’re cheating and eating a dessert disguised as a protein-filled snack. The insides are made of this chewy gooey-chocolate mixture, and the outsides are sprinkled with hazelnuts.

Contains toasted Oregon hazelnuts, organic brown rice syrup, complete protein blend, organic dark chocolate, organic brown rice, organic sunflower seeds, organic dates, organic agave nectar, California almonds, natural vanilla flavor, flaxseed, cocoa powder, and sea salt. Labeled as vegan, non-GMO, soy free, dairy free, gluten-free.
