S.B. Bars

Energy Bars Made from Nuts, Fruits, and Seeds

The nice thing about energy bars is that they’re convenient. The not-nice thing is that, more often than not, they’re presented as though they’re super-healthy, but are in fact loaded with sugar and sundry unpronounceable crap, rendering them as nutritious as a Snickers bar. But Peter Gaum’s Santa Barbara Bars, which you’ve probably seen cropping up around town, are genuinely good for you, built from a base of nuts, fruits, and seeds, and starring nutritional powerhouses like antioxidant-packed cranberries and current reigning super-food champion chia seeds. In flavors like Coconut Almond, Peanut Chocolate Cherry, and Cranberry White Chocolate, they’re satisfying and tasty, not to mention gluten-free, and are packed with protein. For info, visit
