It can be pretty overwhelming when you see the rows of energy bars at the grocery store, but I just found an awesome one made by Odwalla that I think you'd like too. I bought a box of the Peanut Crunch flavor, which are the same as the single bars you can buy, but they're half the size. That means they're only 120 calories instead of 240, so they're perfect for a light snack before or after a workout. I love how these are called "nourishing food bars" instead of "energy bars." That's because they're made with actual food like rolled oats, peanut butter, date and plum puree, and organic soy nuts.
OK, so they're made with healthy and whole ingredients, but do they taste good? Yes! So good! I love "nourishing food bars" that are chewy and these Odwalla Bars fit the bill. The oats, peanut butter and date and plum puree give these bars a wonderful consistency, like a homemade cookie. You can actually see the whole oats too, which is always a plus. They have a very strong "peanutty" flavor and I felt satisfied after eating one bar.
