Bobo’s Oat Bars are Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Breakfast on the Go

1

One of my very first reviews on Go Dairy Free, about fifteen years ago, was Bobo’s Oat Bars. Void of any pictures and buried deep in our archives, I thought this wholesome product deserved a review refresh.

Back then I picked Bobo’s Oat Bars as one of my “5-Star Selections”. And my opinion holds to this day. These thick, dense bars are the ultimate oat lover’s addiction. They have gentle, earthy flavors that aren’t too sweet, nor too savory, but just right – even for sensitive morning taste buds.

Bobo’s Oat Bars are Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Breakfast on the Go

When I first sampled Bobo’s Oat Bars, they had just a few “classic” wheat-free varieties. Since that time, they’ve dramatically expanded their flavor line-up, switched to certified gluten-free oats, and changed their base formula a touch. But the cute handmade vibe and the delicious ingredients are just as I remembered them. Each firm yet tender bite is reminiscent of a favorite warm bowl of oatmeal.

At last count, Bobo’s Oat Bars came in close to 20 flavors. I’ve included full details on some of their Best Sellers, followed by a list of the other current flavors (including seasonal!). Feel free to leave your own rating and review below and let us know which ones you’ve tried.

And I mentioned these bars are hefty, right? Take note that the nutrition facts are for half a bar.

Great breakfast on the go

Imagine a thick bowl of oatmeal cooked until barely tender, sweetened just enough, and spiked with your favorite add-ins. That’s Bobo’s Oat Bars. They’re very filling, so I’ve enjoyed them more as a travel breakfast rather than a snack. So far, I’ve tried the Cinnamon Raisin, Coconut, and Chocolate Chip. Each one was quite tasty and hit the spot. I’ll be keeping my eyes out for the Maple Pecan and Apple Pie – those both sound delicious!

  1. I just tried a Bobo’s peanut butter protein bar and it was terrible. Like saw dust. Very disappointed.
