On The Run? Try One of These Energy Bars!

Ren-oaty Vegan Granola Cookiesphoto © 2010 Veganbaking.net | more info (via: Wylio) An energy bar can be a healthy snack—if you choose the right one. However, choosing the wrong bar can lead you to eating the equivalent of a candy bar. At that point, you might as well have just gone straight for the Snickers. So how do you weed through the good and the bad? Here are our top favorites:

Love your fruit? Try ProBar Fruition Strawberry

This little bar packs two servings of fruit; oats and cashews for fiber; and chia seeds, which contain omega-3 fatty acids. Fruit adds the sweetness, and retains moisture for a nice, chewy snack!

Per bar: 160 cal, 3 g protien, 4 g fiber, 2 g fat, 0 g sat fat, 20 mg sodium

Loving your granola? Try Bear Naked Grain-ola Tropical Fruit

Mango, papaya, coconut, and oats make this a tasty way to get 17 g of whole grains in one convenient snack. The fruit keeps it chewy, while the variety makes it snackalicious.

Per bar: 220 cal, 3 g protien, 4 g fiber, 7 g fat, 2 g sat fat, 60 mg sodium

For the sweet tooth: Clif C Apple

An almond-and-macadamia crust is topped with organic apples and cinnamon and lightly baked. Apples and cinnamon work to keep this bar spicy, but nice and soft.

Per bar: 130 cal, 2 g protein, 4 g fiber, 4.5 g fat, 0 g sat fat, 15 mg sodium

For Nut Lovers: Kind Fruit & Nut Delight

Peanuts, almonds, Brazil nuts, and walnuts mix with raisins and apricots for a satisfying crunch! Just like rolling up your favorite trail mix into bar form!

Per bar: 180 cal, 5 g pro, 4 g fiber, 11 g fat, 2 g sat fat, 30 mg sodium

Like to keep it simple? Try Lärabar Banana Bread

Three ingredients—almonds, dates, and unsweetened bananas—prove that simple can be loaded with flavor. Banana nut bread anyone? Keeping it simple keeps it yummy!

Per bar: 230 cal, 6 g pro, 5 g fiber, 11 g fat, 1 g sat fat, 0 mg sodium
