Which Bar Tastes The Most Like A Zone Bar?
Posted 10 August 2012 - 09:32 AM
The bars don't actually contain any gluten ingredients, but they are made on equipment that processes wheat. So we're on the hunt for a substitute.
She doesn't like anything fruity (which rules out most Larabars -- I don't like them either), noticeable pieces of nuts/needs (which rules out Trio bars), or solid chocolate (which rules out the Enjoy Life Cocoa Loco bars).

Of course it is a personal choice.

Diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 15 years ago. Fibro symptoms have improved but not gone away with gluten free living.
Osteoarthritis, mostly in hands and neck and lumbar spine. Not sure if going gluten-free has helped that problem, but it certainly can't hurt. (Am very grateful that so far no sign of the RA that is devastating my mother lately.)
Considering a dairy free trial. Considering.

Don't know if you're interested in making your own but...
I've made these and the kid LOVES them... The best part is I can make them with the stuff he like. And sooo easy!
I, also, made the last batch and added a scoop of his protein mix that he uses for his workout shakes... He likes these (with the exception of my first batch/attempt... ) better than the commercial brands I used to buy him. Oh and much cheaper, too!

My sources are unreliable, but their information is fascinating.

Leap, and the net will appear.

Yes! I added cocoa to the last batch and then drizzled with Baker's chocolate... (he's been eating them so fast I can barely keep up).
They keep well in the freezer, too. I wrap them individually so he can just grab and go...

I might try making my own (though I'll consider what you said too, bbuster -- thanks for sharing that). She started 1st grade yesterday and we learned that her classroom is peanut free. While of course I am supportive of other kids' food issues, it's tougher to find a gluten- and peanut-free bar! At some point it starts sounding more reasonable to just make them myself.
