Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars are made with Stone Ground Whole Wheat

If I started giving out dairy-free snack food awards, Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars would definitely win for the most affordable, tasty, wholesome treat. In fact, I did include them on my Top Tasty Bars for Road Trips round up. We buy them often for a quick sweet-snack hybrid that’s easy to share, since they come two to a pack.

Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars are like Fig Newtons, only much better in our opinion. They’re heftier, heartier, and more richly flavored with real ingredients. It actually amazes me that I frequently find them on sale for 50 cents, and have even been able to buy them in Europe!

Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars come in a Rainbow of Wholesome Flavors

Each cookie-like bar has a wholesome, lightly-sweetened shell made from whole wheat flour and rolled oats. They have changed their formula a little over the years – for example, the ingredients used to include oat bran. Consequently, they aren’t as “nutty” in flavor as in years past, but they still have a hearty bite. The inside is a thick fruit paste, which is quite similar to a Fig Newton, but with a more genuine fig taste. The flavors are still fig-based, but they blend real fruit jams with the figs to mix things up.

I tried these a few months ago and i haven’t looked back. I live that they are whole grain, made with real fruit and they taste amazing. These are my go to snack when i want something sweet and fruity. The lemon flavor is my favorite.

Like a Newton, but SO MUCH BETTER, these 100% whole grain bars come in a bunch of flavors that all seem to go well with the fig base. My whole family loves the “nutty” whole wheat taste, and we each have a different favorite. We buy them whenever they’re on sale.
