Mid-afternoon slump got you craving something sweet? Step away from the Snickers, we've got you covered with these all-natural bars that don't sacrifice taste for healthy ingredients.
We’ve rounded up five of the best all-natural bars for that mid-morning pick-me-up, with an ingredients list you can actually pronounce, and count on one hand. Trialled and tested by Team Sporteluxe (and boy did we enjoy it), here are five delicious ‘health’ bars that are actually healthy.
An all-round office favourite, Blue Dinosaur Paleo Bars have been gaining traction lately for their ‘Lamington’ bar, that tastes just like the Aussie staple. Made with raw organic cacao and sulphur-free dessicated coconut, elite athletes and surfers have been carrying them around as a secret weapon in theirsports bag. Entirely Paleo and organic, the range is definitely worth a try for your tastebuds and gets two thumbs up from us.
You can find Blue Dinosaur bars in most health food stores.
Another Sporteluxe favourite is Health Lab‘s crazy tasty protein balls. Packed with natural, organic ingredients, they’re perfect for a mid afternoon pick-me-up to curb cravings and keep on the healthy bandwagon. We can’t go passed their new flavours, D-Tox Lemon (dates, almonds, whey protein, organic coconut, water and lemon oil) and Craving Cruncher Coconut (vanilla, organic coconut, whey protein, quinoa flakes).
What better way to know what’s in your energy bar than if you make it yourself? DIY Paleo brand, Funch have released their own make-at-home superfood ball mixture. A nutrient-dense, turmeric, ginger and lemon combo, it’s gluten-free, guilt-free and anti-inflammatory. Just add coconut oil and your syrup of choice, roll into a ball and refrigerate for 30mins; a tasty on-the-go snack you can carry with you everywhere.
A United States favourite, Health Warrior‘s Chia Bars are a plant-based, natural bar with chia seeds as it’s #1 ingredient. We’ve all heard of the benefits of chia seeds in our diet, so it’s no wonder it makes for a nutritious, tasty snack packed with protein and fibre.
If you’re looking for some chocolate-goodness, the delectable brownie bar is an organic, vegan formula, naturally sweetened with dates and agave. Walnuts, cashews, cacao and brown rice protein are all you will find in terms of ingredients. But whatever the flavour, Pure Organic make sure their bars are all-natural, and all-delicious, all the time. We approve.
