The Best Gluten-Free Bars and Snacks

The Best Gluten-Free Snacks on the Go

You're running late, and you need something quick! Most of the fast options are wheat based, but if you're gluten-free (GF) that won't work. Here are the top tasting foods to snack on — so good that someone who isn't GF will enjoy them.

  • Larabar: Impossible to miss in their adorable bright packaging and dessert-inspired flavors, it's hard to believe they only consist of dried fruit and nuts. These bars are as simple as it gets. Worth trying: Cherry Pie, Apple Pie, and Carrot Cake.
  • Kind Plus: It's obvious to tell these bars are healthy, and in a good way. This brand has gone above and beyond to provide the best quality of food so they deserve all of the bragging rights they get. All natural, wheat free, three grams of fiber, non-GMO, and very low sodium. Just to top it off the bars contain a load of antioxidants. No one would believe they make a flavor called Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew.
  • thinkThin: The thinkThin bars have been spreading like wildfire. Considered a high-protein bar packing 20 grams into every individually packaged piece. If you crave sweets but need protein, reach for their Creamy Peanut Butter and Brownie Crunch flavors.
  • The Pure bar: These tiny little bars are exactly what they say they are, pure, organic, nutrients. Do you judge a book by its cover? Because this one reads kind of sweet, kind of nutty, totally healthy.

If you aren't on the bar train but still want some gluten-free snack options, here are others to help satisfy you. See these protein-packed treats after the break!

  • String cheese: This snack has been around a long time, and for good reason. A stick of mozzarella cheese contains six grams of protein, not to mention it's a package within a package. This is as easy as it gets!
  • Hummus: This less convenient option is so tasty, it's worth the mess. Made from garbanzo beans, hummus provides a satisfying protein staple you can put on pretty much anything. From veggies to another protein like string cheese, hummus is yummus.
  • Almonds: It's no surprise that almonds have protein, but this well-balanced snack is on the list for its other health benefits as well. In addition to getting you protein, almonds provide dietary fiber as well as the healthy fats you need for your daily intake. Companies have caught on and are now making packages with the proper serving amount in each palm-sized bag so that you can bring these on the go.

\u00a0@rfischer9\u00a0Yeah, thanks I've read that too. It doesn't change the fact that Larabar is owned by GM, and GM has contributed massive amounts to oppose GMO labeling. Larabar sold out, and they effectively oppose GMO labeling because of it. I've done my homework.\u00a0

Simone - per LARABAR site as respects Prop 37: Dear L\u00c4RABAR Community,We hear your passion and concerns regarding California Proposition 37, and we acknowledge the strongly held views on this topic.\u00a0 We would like to restate \u2013 L\u00c4RABAR products do not use any GMO ingredients, and never will. As a further sign of our commitment, we are in the process of enrolling our brand in the Non-GMO Project.Like most food companies that sell products beyond California, General Mills (the parent company of L\u00c4RABAR) is not in favor of state-based labeling laws.\u00a0 General Mills believes labeling regulations should be set at the national level, not on a state-by-state basis, as Proposition 37 would mandate in California.\u00a0 To learn more about General Mills\u2019 position on Proposition 37, we encourage you to\u00a0read more here.

Larabar is owned by GM, who is contributing millions to stop prop 37, GMO labeling, from happening. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stop promoting companies who oppose this. You CANNOT call yourself an organization that is concerned about health while promoting companies that are trying to kill us. PLEASE.
