Gluten-Free Granola Bar Review

If you have been gluten-free for any amount of time, whether it be a few months or many years, you are well aware that a gluten-free granola bar can be hard to find. There are many “bar” products, but I have seen very few that are granola, mostly because gluten-free oats are expensive and have only become more readily available. Some companies make them without using oats at all, like the granola bars made by Bakery On Main. I found these the other day at Raisin Rack, my local health food store. They were not cheap, $5.99, but were on sale for $3.99, so I decided to give them a shot. I bought the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip variety, as PB & chocolate are 2 of my very favorite things. These bars were suprisingly very good. Both Jon and I have blown through a whole box in less than a few days. They aren’t like the Nature Valley Chewy Granola bars that I used to eat in my pre-GF days, but they were a nice treat. Not only are they GF, but they are casein free and dairy free, as well. They are 140 calories and 4.5 grams of fat per bar (no trans fats) and do have 1g of fiber per bar. A very nice grab & go treat to have on hand.

Also, Bakery On Main has 2 other varieties of the granola bars that are GF and bags of granola in many flavors. I actually have a bag of the Extreme Fruit & Nut in my pantry just waiting to be opened! I will make sure to write a review on it after both Jon & I try it out. 🙂

  1. Hi my name is Christine and I am contacting you on behalf of Bakery on Main. Our mission is to create products that are good for you, but taste like they aren’t. Today Bakery on Main has over 8 tasty products that are available for a gluten-free. I see that you have tried our PB chocolate chip and I was wondering if you would be interested in receiving some of our other flavors for a review. You can contact me directly at Thank you for trying our product!

  2. I tried Bakery on Main peanut butter granola bars on two occasions and was disappointed each time. The first time the bars were hard as a rock I almost broke my tooth. I thought maybe I just bought a bad batch and tried them again and the second batch was just as terrible! I have not bought them ever since. Sorry!
