1. KIND Bars- These bars a low in sugar, and are packed with protein. Basically, these bars are just nuts glued together with honey. They consist of clean ingredients, and were voted the #1 bar to bring hiking. Woot Woot! Just watch it because some flavors have added sugars.

3. Luna Bars- Eh. They’re okay, besides for its odd ingredients that mess up digestion. They are relatively low in sugar for a granola bar (with about 8 grams), and they satisfy sweet tooth cravings without eating a candy bar. The protein ones add a little somethin’, somethin’ too.

4. Kellogg’s Special K Protein Bars- Yum! These bars are only 110 calories and have just 2 grams of fat. Since they have added protein, they keep you fuller longer than those tiny 90 calorie Special K Granola Bars that are out there.

5. Fiber One- These bars have 140 calories, 10 grams or sugar, 2 grams of protein and 9 grams of fiber. They are one of the only bars that have a high fiber count, too, and you are supposed to eat around 20 to 35 grams of fiber per day…
