Livin' Lean (left) was a crispy, fruity and somewhat nutty experience I won't soon forget. Sort of a classic granola bar, but without the classic cardboard flavor that so many conventional granola bars offer up. The Cherry Dates Nuts (right), on the other hand, was soft and gooey and very much like a delicious piece of fudge. Or a Pure bar. Needless to say, both will be great snacks before and potentially after I teach a fitness class. Or as a mid-day snack.
My only concern? And really, this is a general concern that I offer up regarding any granola bar, keep an eye on the calorie count. Those pesky calories can add up, but in the case of Element Bars, they are quality calories that will go a long way in terms of your nutrition.
How's that for awesome? So let me know if you do that, too.
