Earnest Eats Baked Whole Food Bars are Filling Oat Bars

1

Though not over-sized, Earnest Eats baked whole food bars are very dense and filling. They’re oaty and chewy, like a granola bar crossed with a traditional energy bar. These tasty snacks provided my husband and I with amazing fuel, whether we were running around town or hiking in the nearby mountains. (Note: The picture below shows them cut into smaller squares so we could sample them.)

Tasting Notes for Earnest Eats Baked Whole Food Bars

We chowed our way through the following five different flavors of Earnest Eats baked whole food bars. Beyond the taste, I love that Earnest Eats baked whole food bars are so darn close to homemade. They skip the protein powders and forgo the fortification, but use whole oats, nuts, seeds, fruits, and nut butter.

Apple Ginger

This tasty, earthy flavor is infused with sweet dried apple flavor and a mellow ginger zest.

Cran Lemon Zest

Mmmmm! The lemon in this bar wasn’t the least bit over powering, but rather sweet and just slightly tangy. The cranberries also hesitate on exerting their presence, rather melding into the backdrop for an intriguing overall flavor that left my taste buds wanting more.

Almond Trail Mix

I found this variety to be surprisingly similar to the Cran Lemon Zest, and equally tasty, but with an underlying savory vibe from all of the nuttiness.

Choco Peanut Butter

Who doesn’t love chocolate with peanut butter? Leaning a touch more toward the energy bar side in texture, this bar had a delicious sweet peanut flavor with a smattering of dairy-free chocolate chips that tied it with the Cran Lemon Zest for my favorite.

These deliver on taste, ingredients, and heartiness. They’re flavorful and filling but not heavy. I also like that they are made with pure blends of fruits, nuts, oats, and nut butter. The Cran Lemon Zest and Choco Peanut Butter are now two of my go-to’s.
