You might recall Nature’s Bakery Brownie Bars of days past. They were a bit like Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars with a soft whole wheat cookie wrapped around a filling in the center. But unlike the Fig Bars, they were chocolaty throughout, with a denser filling, and they used dates instead of figs. They also came in four flavors. Well, as of 2019, those are all gone. Nature’s Bakery Brownies are still whole grain, made with dates, and chocolaty throughout, but now they’re all soft cookie (no filling) and come in just one simplified variety.

What Others Are Saying ...
I contacted the company that makes these after noticing a taste in difference. They tasted stale and chemically enhanced. I was told the alcohol ingredient had been removed. I purchased a new batch today and also noticed strange play-doh like texture. More shocking than the taste, the calories have gone up to a whopping 200 and the sugar has doubled! Disappointing…
Response from Go Dairy Free
As a heads up, the calorie count hasn’t changed. They just used to list a serving as 1 cookie, but now they list it as 1 package (2 cookies). That’s why the calorie count is now 200 instead of 100 – the serving size doubled.
Fig bars meet brownies
Think fig bars meet brownies and you have these new chocolate-throughout baked treats. The outer layer is like a tender whole wheat chocolate cookie while the filling is dense and fudgy – yet the two seem to merge into one cohesive flavor and textural experience. I enjoyed the original Chocolate, which just barely quelled my dessert cravings while leaving me a bit energized rather than over-sugared. The Blueberry was similar, but the taste wasn’t quite as seamless, with chocolate and fruit battling for center stage.
