If you think you are not in Kansas anymore, you are right (maybe). These nutrition and paleo protein bars are not your traditional bars. Don’t be alarmed… just go try one.
- Most bars are all gluten-free, dairy-free and soy-free. Therefore, I combined them into one column and noted if otherwise.
- The price listed is per bar. Keep in mind that some products are larger than others, but the size doesn’t vary too much.
- Products are usually sold in boxes of 8-15, therefore they are cheaper than when purchased individually.
… What About KIND Bars?
KIND bars are another good healthy snack that are gluten-free and are all-natural with low glycemic levels (minimal sugar). However, all flavors that I saw contained puffed rice – which some paleo eaters may not (or may) like.
