Posted on June 19th, 2008 by Alison Read 7 Comments - Add Your Own »

A while back I told you about some of the gluten-free and allergen-free snack bars on the market. I received feedback and product samples of some more so I thought I would let you know about them! Feel free to leave a comment and let everyone know what you think.

  2. Thanks Lisa,
    I LOVE Jennie’s macaroons. I didn’t realize they made a bar.

  3. Does anyone know if any of these are available anywhere in Canada?

  4. I highly recommend Cascadian Farms Harvest Berry Bars. You have to read the labels – there are two different formulas, one with almonds and one without. They are great tasting and very chewy.

    I often eat one when I can’t find anything else in the pantry to eat.

  5. Shannon,
    Does Amazon ship to Canada?

    Alana,
    The Cascadian Farms Harvest Berry Bars look yummy, but they are full of gluten unfortunately — which means I can’t eat it. Besides oats (not the gluten-free kind) and barley malt extract, they even contain wheat flour! I wish someone would make a really good gluten-free granola bar with uncontaminated oats.

  6. They actually have a version (not on their website) with rice flour, but I didn’t think about the oats. What should I look for in the oats?

  7. Alana,
    Commercial oats are contaminated with wheat (this has been proven in random testing of several popular brands). You can read more on my post What’s the deal with oats?
