Larabars, Bumble Bars, thinkGreen, PranaBars and Kind bars are gluten free (some of these are also dairy free, but check carefully). Try your local Whole Foods store.

Personally, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Kind bars - they actually have whole nuts and large chunks of dried fruit in them - and they are crunchy! I'm not a fan of those weird gummy non-crunchy bars. I absolutely hated the Bumble Bars - one bite, needed to wash out my mouth with water. Larabars and pranaBars are ok (taste good, icky texture). I have a bunch of thinkGreens, but I haven't had one.

Dairy-free?

The PranaBar I have in front of me claims to be vegan.

The thinkGreen bar contains milk.

The Larabar in front of me is soy and dairy free, but I am not sure they all are. You're gonna have to check.

Kind bars vary. I don't have any right now, but I recall that some have dairy, some don't. I don't recall on the soy.

Kind and Lara bars are easily found in grocery/health stores in my area. Harry's (Whole Foods) carries Bumble Bars, Mrs. Mays and a few others. I prefer Kind Bars hands down. Some of them do have soy so if that's an issue for you you'll need to read the labels.

You can also make your own! I make these Dashew bars that Bernice Mast posted on Gluten Free examiner, and they are not only super tasty, but they're very simple to make. I've modified her recipe just a bit, adding some toasted, unsweetened coconut, cinnamon and a pinch of salt. I usually keep one of these stashed in my bag, for whenever I need an easy snack, or if I'm stranded somewhere and am unsure of whether there's safe food nearby.
