When it came to selecting nutrient-packed ingredients, the makers of these delicious bars thought outside the box.

PROBAR Bite Organic Snack Bar

Probar’s newest line of mini bars, (1.6 ounces) features six unique flavors, including chocolate cherry cashew and coconut almond. We were most intrigued by the superfruit and greens flavor—a blend of acai powder, chia seeds, cashews and a mix of greens (wheat grass, alfalfa and barley grass). The 190-calorie bar features an interesting flavor profile—white chocolate was one of the dominant flavors, and we didn’t detect the greens at all. Each bar contains 27 grams of carbs and 6 grams of protein, making it a great energy-boosting snack.

Rodeo Trail Nuggets

The Triathlete staff has taste-tested a lot of bars over the years, and these energy-rich bars (210–220 calories) rank among our favorites. The Almond Lemon Hot Date is made with just four ingredients including lemon peel and lemon oil, and the Just Beet It includes beets, orange oil and dried cranberries, giving it a citrus and cranberry flavor. And the Peanut Butter Coco Apocalypse kept us coming back for more. Each bar contains 37–40 grams of carbs and 3–5 grams of protein. Stash it in your jersey pocket for a calorie-
dense ride snack.

Ally’s Bar Original Sweet Potato

Thanks to its base of sweet potato powder, dates and quinoa, this 250-calorie bar is tasty and filling. It’s hard to really put a finger on the flavor—we could definitely taste the cinnamon, dates and dark chocolate, and we loved the moist yet mildly crunchy texture from the mix of nuts (cashews, almonds and walnuts). Created by pro cyclist Ally Stacher, the bar is slim enough to fit in a jersey pocket, and it slides out of the package easily, making it great for a one-handed bite while riding. Each gluten-free bar contains 38 grams of carbs and 4 grams of protein, plus a dose of vitamin A. $3.67,
