Clif Bar has discontinued Kit’s Organic Bars. See our Dairy-Free Protein, Energy & Snack Bar Reviews for other options.
I’m always on the lookout for a good brand of dairy-free, nutritious food bars. These Kit’s Organic Fruit & Nut Bars are the newest addition to my favorites!
The Kit’s Organic Fruit & Nut Bars are a part of the Clif Bar family. They aren’t too different from a popular competitor, but just enough that they edge them out for me.
Here’s why I now love Kit’s Organic Bars:
- Most importantly, the taste. They are the perfect blend of fruit and nuts, with some extra nut chunks added for textural interest.
- They have an insanely simple ingredient list. All four of the flavors are made with a base of organic dates, organic almonds, and sea salt. They have just one to three additional whole food ingredients based on the flavor.
- They are 100% organic. Yes, seriously, all of the bars, all-organic, and affordable to boot.
- They are also gluten-free and soy-free. This has become important in my household as of late. To note, these bars are also completely vegan.
Flavor Notes for Kit’s Organic Fruit + Nut Bars
Thus far, we’ve sampled the following Kit’s Organic Fruit + Nut flavors:
Peanut Butter – Surprise, surprise, this flavor was my favorite. It really delivered on peanutty flavor and contains just Organic Dates, Organic Peanuts, Organic Almonds, and Sea Salt.
Berry Almond (Discontinued) – I thought this one had a nice fruity twist and a cherry-blueberry flavor vibe. But unfortunately, it has been discontinued.
Chocolate Almond Coconut – This variety was a bit richer than the others, but definitely dark chocolate in nature. The ingredients are just Organic Dates, Organic Almonds, Organic Unsweetened Chocolate, Organic Coconut, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, and Sea Salt.
Cashew – I voted this simple, clean flavor as a close second. It contains just Organic Dates, Organic Cashews, Organic Almonds, and Sea Salt.

Larabars are very similar and they have the same short ingredient lists. Here’s a recipe that should save you money: http://blog.outdoorherbivore.com/camp-tips/trail-bar-recipe. Haven’t tried it yet myself but I’m planning to soon. 🙂
Alisa, are you aware of Larabars. I didnt see them on your short list. These are awesome little raw food bars. Check them out. Beth
Sorry – I meant $11.88 a case. With the normal price less than a dollar, I’m sure I will buy more when the sale ends. Also, I like it that the Kit’s bars are not huge and have 200 or fewer calories. Other good nutritious nondairy and non added sugar bars have too many calories (at least Raw Revolution recently reduced theirs – but it’s still a little high at 230 or so). It’s hard to eat less than one bar, or if you do, hard sometimes to have what you need to wrap it up when you’re on the move. Anyway, I’d appreciate any info you might have about nondairy non-sugar-added, organic food, especially at an affordable price. Thans!
Thanks so much! I’ll be going to Whole Foods this week and will definitely pick up some with the coupons. I haven’t yet trialed Raw Revolution, but will put them on my list.
I do my best to find these types of products myself! I’ll keep my eye out and add more as I come across them in the reviews here.
I thought you might like to know – Whole Foods has a coupon special on these bars curently (maybe until the end of the month, I’m not sure). It is buy one get one free with the coupons. They don’t mind if you take a bunch of coupon books, tear them out, and get 2 cases for the price of one (12 in a case) with 12 coupons. Plus, they are normally about 99cents a bar there and you get a case discount so I have gone in and gotten 24 Kit’s bars for $11.98 – the 10% case discount twice now. I am stocking up. All you have to do is tear the coupons out of the free coupon books. (I am not affiliated with Whole Foods, just a customer pleased with this bargain and these bars. ) I just wish there were a chocolate without coconut and with chocolate chips. Is the competitor you mention Raw Revolution? I actually like these a little better, but they are more expensive, the wrapper gets greasy, and although the sweetener is agave, which is good, it might have a little too much and the Kit’s doesn’t have it, although dates are maybe as sweet as agave. What do you think?
