Top 5 Gluten-Free Snack Bars

Have you tried looking for gluten-free granola bars recently? It used to be a hopeless exercise, but now there are lots of choices—even gluten-free oat bars! I've listed my favorites below. I only see them in stores sporadically, but they can all be purchased online with discounts for bulk purchases.

Check the manufacturers' prices, and look on Amazon and gluten-free mail-order vendor sites, too. Most of these are technically not granola bars because they don't all have grains—but they all have plenty of fiber and healthy ingredients.


KIND Fruit + Nut bars are delicious snacks for a heart-healthy diet, made with whole almonds, Brazil nuts, walnuts, peanuts, and chunks of all-natural dried fruits held together with honey. KIND PLUS bars also made with fruit and nuts, are enhanced with antioxidants, calcium, protein, and other nutritional benefits.

I love these bars. Give me one with a cup of coffee and I'm happy. They come in a wide range of flavors, and you can get discounts if you order them by the case.


Now available in 16 flavors, LÄRABARS were one of the first gluten-free fruit and nut snack bars on the market. They're made from a blend of raw foods: unsweetened fruits, nuts, and spices.

Many bars have no more than eight ingredients and no fillers, supplements or flavorings. They're gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, vegan and kosher. I don't know how I would have gotten through all my travels in the past few years without LÄRABARS in my purse to sustain me when I needed a snack.

NuGo FREE Bars

NuGo's gluten, soy, and dairy-free bars come in flavors like Dark Chocolate Crunch, Dark Chocolate Trail Mix, and Carrot Cake. I just had my first NuGO FREE snack bar recently—one of the Dark Chocolate Crunch bars—and I was very impressed.

Tasty, crunchy (as promised), chewy, and packed with 9 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber. I wasn't hungry again for hours. These earned a place on my list.

think! Gluten-Free Bars

Believe it or not, there are finally gluten-free oat bars on the market—all think! bars are gluten-free and their thinkKIDS®, High Protein, High Protein Plant Based, and Protein + 150 calorie bars are certified gluten free by the Gluten Free Certification Organization and displays the GFCO logo on the packaging. If you haven't been including this great source of fiber in your diet, read about gluten-free oats, and talk to your doctor.

EnviroKidz Crispy Rice Bars

Nature’s Path Organic, one of the oldest and most trusted manufacturers of quality organic foods, has long been including delicious gluten-free foods in its product line.

The company's EnviroKidz crispy rice bars now come in two kid-friendly (and grown-up friendly) flavors: Crispy Peanut Choco and Crispy Peanut Butter.
