Dried fruit is just concentrated sugar, personally I would skip that. Most granola bars are too...
Maybe Kavli Crispy Thin Whole Grain Crispbread..17 calories and 4 grams of carb for a generous portion or maybe Wasa Crisp'n Light 7 Grains cracker bread with 20 calories and 4.5 grams of carb per slice. Why not pack a lunch bag cooler everyday with some raw veggies....easy to tote...maybe celery, radishes. raw cauliflower with a tad of reduced fat cream cheese or take along a yogurt cup, an applesauce cup, a fruit cup, fresh berries. I love those lunch cooler bags....you might too!

I often keep an apple in my purse. You can also buy individual 'snack packs' of peanut butter

dry cereal (something like puffins or cheerios would be great) beef/turkey jerky larabars (no coating like a regular protein bar so they will withstand the heat a little better) dried fruit with no added sugar dry roasted edamame wasabi peas

I'm looking for something I can keep in my purse or bag to have on hand for those "emergency snacks". Sometimes I'll have things in my purse for days before I need it so I need something that will hold up to that challenge. It's also super hot where I live and my regular protein bars are melting.
I am looking for something besides / in addition to nuts and seeds, and not as full of refined sugar like most granola bars.
