RxBar Protein Bars http://www.godairyfree.org/product-reviews/rxbar-protein-bars http://www.godairyfree.org/product-reviews/rxbar-protein-bars#comments Wed, 25 Mar 2015 20:32:22 +0000 http://www.godairyfree.org/?p=206825 I love the well-thought out name and tagline of this simple snack: RxBar – As Prescribed By Nature. Though relatively hefty, each flavor contains just 6 or 7 ingredients that are almost too easy to read: dates, egg whites, almonds, figs, and dried fruit, nut butter, coffee or chocolate – depending on the flavor.

I probably would have wanted to sample them even if their ingredients weren’t so darn virtuous, too. Each Modern Oats cup is made with certified gluten-free rolled oats, organic cane sugar, dried fruit, tons of seeds (chia, flax, [...]
