For MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & Toddlers 18 Months +*
THE COMPANY: Lola Granola Bars started in the humble kitchen of a busy mom during a time when her family was receiving public assistance. Born from a bowl of oats, dried fruit, nuts, seeds, and honey, all baked with love, the idea came about as Mary’s husband was in need of a healthy snack and her children with food allergies wanted some too.
Named after Mary’s 4 children and 1 nephew, Lola Granola Bar’s mission is to create clean snacks from simple ingredients that taste good. Their belief in making healthy snacks available to all can be seen through their donations to children’s anti-hunger programs and partnerships with retailer's charitable community efforts.
THE PRODUCT: Certified gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, Kosher, and non-GMO, many of the ingredients used in Lola Granola Bars are also Organic. Moreover, the RUBY bar is also nut free, with their plant undergoing a rigorous cleaning process before they are manufactured. In addition, they pay for third party allergen testing after every production run.
With 5 simple and delicious granola-based bars to choose from, including flavors such as Blueberries and Almonds, Cashews and Dates, and Almonds and Cranberries, these soft and chewy bars also give you the perfect hint of honey no matter which flavor you choose.
NUTRITION-WISE: Full of gluten-free oats, honey, flaxseed, sunflower seeds, coconut oil, vanilla extract and cinnamon, as well as a variety of other nuts, berries, etc. depending on the flavor, these bars contain simple and nutritious ingredients, with nothing artificial.
All of Lola Granola Bars contain around 200 calories, 60-90 of which come from healthy fats, as well as 5-6 grams of protein, 4-5 grams of fiber, and 13-15 grams of sugar per bar.
*Lola Granola Bars are a great snack for kids and adults alike. Made with all-natural and non-GMO ingredients, these bars take many of the common allergies into consideration. Furthermore, the only sweetener used is honey (with exception of the cane sugar used on the dried fruit), making them a much better option than the sugar-loaded snack foods you can find out there. Yet with that said, they still do contain quite a bit of sugar for a little one, so I’d suggest giving a young toddler around ½ a bar at a time, since sugar in any form is best avoided while you still have some control over it ☺.
WHERE TO BUY: Lola Granola Bars can conveniently be purchased through their Online Store, or you can visit their Store Locator to find the retail location nearest you.
FINAL THOUGHTS: With all the flavorful, exotic, and ingredient-loaded bars on store shelves these days, sometimes it’s refreshing to just eat something simple. Something that you can count on to be good-for-you and good-tasting. Nothing too fancy or precocious.
And that is exactly what you will find with Lola Granola Bars. Soft and chewy, with just the right amount of sweet, you don’t have to worry about dissecting the labels with these bars. Made with 8 core ingredients, these gluten-free oat and honey-based bars are just what you need to start your day, get you over that mid-day stomach growl, or help to tied you over somewhere in-between.
So whether you are looking for a quick and healthy breakfast for yourself, or want something easy to throw in your kid’s lunchbox, then you should check out Lola Granola Bars and see for yourself how great granola bars can be!
