Core Bars are an Easy Way to Enjoy Overnight Oats on the Go

3

We tried Core Bars back in 2013, but these mini meals have changed quite a bit since then. For starters, they’re now called “Overnight Oat Bars” instead of meal bars, they come in a wider range of flavors, and they’re now stocked with both prebiotics and probiotics (1 Billion CFUs per bar). But they’re still made with simple, whole food ingredients.

Core Bars are an Easy Way to Enjoy Overnight Oats on the Go

Core Bars are sold refrigerated, since they’re made with fresh ingredients and have a high moisture content. But you can pack them along for the day or even on a trip. They’ll keep for about one week at room temperature.

  1. The walnut banana meal whey bar is the most awful tasting bar I’ve ever had. Please add some sugar or blend some figs or something. I’m all about all natural, healthy, GMO free, etc. but this tastes horrible. The “perfect” bar is amazing. This bar is not going to last long on the shelves!
