It isn’t often that I find a natural food company right in my backyard, so I was thrilled to discover Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars. In my family’s opinion, these substantial, whole grain healthy cookies kick Newton’s to the curb!
We picked up three flavors of Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars to sample at Expo West: Raspberry, Peach Apricot, and traditional Fig. Each had a delicious “nutty” shell of stone ground whole wheat flour, rolled oats, and oat fiber, lightly-sweetened with dried cane syrup and brown rice syrup.
On the inside, the thick fruit paste is quite similar to a Newton, but with a more genuine flavor. I could actually taste the real figs! My niece adored the Raspberry (usually her favorite flavor of anything) and though I still like the original Fig flavor best, all of the Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars were devoured with smiles.
Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars come with two healthy cookies per package, and in my opinion, can be enjoyed as a quick bar snack or a nutritious little dessert on the go. I’ve actually found them to be quite competitively priced at my local stores (now that I know about them, I’m spotting them everywhere!), and on the less expensive side for bars or whole grain snacks.
