I first saw this product in Earth Fare and picked up one of the flavors that wasn't gluten free. However, after reading the ingredients and the company's website, I was okay with taking a (cautious) bite or two. It was amazing. Soft, Dense. Flavorful. It was like if a cookie and a oats had a baby and that baby was more superior than an oatmeal cookie. Too much? Sorry, but these bars are super yummy.
On the website the following flavors are listed as Gluten Free: Peach, Maple Pecan, Lemon Poppyseed, Chocolate Almond, Apple Pie, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Original (Bites).
However, here is a link to the updated list.
So far, I've tried the Original, Apple Pie, Lemon Poppyseed, Peach and Maple Pecan. I can live without the Peach and Maple Pecan to be honest, but the Apple Pie and Lemon Poppyseed are amazing!
