New Giveaway: Delicious, High Fiber, Gnu Bars!

Share This:

A few weeks ago, the folks at Gnu Foods contacted me to ask if I’d be interested in trying their bars. I hadn’t actually tried Gnu Bars before, but I had always seen them at Whole Foods and was curious about how they’d taste.

Usually bars that have flavors like “Blondie” and “Chocolate Brownie” don’t actually taste like a brownie or blondie – and instead have a mealy consistency. That’s not the case with these bars – it seriously felt like I was eating a delicious, guilt-free dessert!

They have a chewy, dense texture – similar to what you’d get with a really great, soft-baked oatmeal cookie, and they come in 9 amazing flavors like: Peanut Butter, Orange Cranberry, Banana Walnut, Cinnamon Raisin, Chocolate Brownie, Espresso Chip, Lemon Ginger, Blondie, and Blueberry Cobbler. 

These bars have great nutritional stats. Each bar is made with 100% all-natural ingredients, and has only 130-140 calories per bar, about 7-11g sugar, and 12g fiber per bar! They’re vegan, kosher and are a truly healthy snack.

They also have NO high fructose corn syrup, no artificial or refined sugars, no trans fat, no hydrogenated oils, no dairy/whey, and no soy.

And now, one lucky reader has the opportunity to win a HUGE sample pack of Gnu Bars: 2 of each flavor, so 18 bars total! 🙂

  13. Hey Anjali,

    I came across your blog and was so pleasantly surprised to find someone who cooks and eats like me!! – I love cooking easy to make, tasty and healthy food (read lots of veggies)!
    I’ve subscribed to your blog via email and am going to start with the whole wheat pita recipe tonight..

    Happy Healthy Eating! 🙂

    • Hi Poulomi! Thanks so much for your comment! It’s so nice to meet you 🙂 I can’t wait to hear how you like the whole wheat pita recipe! Hope you had a great dinner tonight, and I’m excited to chat with you more through my blog!

      • The Pita Pizza was delicious! 🙂 I’ve actually had similar veggie pizza at a restaurant where they also added other veggies (zucchini, squash, etc.) and fresh basil which added good flavor too..
        I will stay tuned and looking forward to trying more of your recipes…Cheers! 🙂

        • Woohoo! So happy to hear that! Oh and yes – those other pizza toppings would be great for this recipe – you can pretty much top those pita pizzas with anything and I’m sure it would taste delicious 🙂

  14. Following on Facebook. Would love to try these bars, especially since they do not have soy. As soon as I am able I’ll head to Whole Foods to check them out!

  15. Hi Anjali! I am following you on twitter. I found these bars in whole foods and I LOVE them. I just ordered the sample pack from their website. They have great flavors and I love the amount of fiber the provide.

    • Oh that’s awesome Jackie! Totally agree – they have amazing flavors – they taste just like dessert 🙂 Enjoy your bars!

  16. I found you on pintrest, but i follow you on twitter and Facebook also. your tips are great, now my plate is always brimming with healthy goodness. I’ve also begun to allow myself occasional bad things to reduce my self controlling eating!

    • Aw yay! Thanks so much Rachel – I’m so glad to hear that! And yes – occasional “bad things” – or, as I like to call them “indulgences” 🙂 are totally ok. My philosophy is: everything in moderation – if I can eat super healthy 80% of the time, I like to give myself 20% wiggle room to indulge or just have more flexibility if I want it!

  17. I follow you on Twitter already, @KelsiKordick and I also liked you on Facebook. I love healthy, filling bars, this post makes me so excited!

    • Thanks so much Karen! I’m sure your family will love my recipes – if my junk-food-loving husband enjoys them, I think pretty much anyone will 🙂 I hope my recipes turn out well for you and your family – let me know how it goes!

  18. I love that these are kosher and vegan, but are not largely date based as many other bars are. Dates are not one of my favorite fruits. I am an RSS subscriber via Google reader.

  19. Hi Everyone!! I’m very excited to announce that Brittany @ Barr and Table has won this giveaway!! Congrats Brittany! And thanks to everyone who entered – this was our largest giveaway yet! Stay tuned – I’ll be giving away lots more fun stuff on my blog in the next few weeks 🙂 Thanks again!
