Think Thin bars say they are gluten free right on the package. They have a lot of protein and come in many yummy flavors.

Diane Hammer from thinkproducts wrote me back the following:

Quote:
"In looking over your e-mail I can understand the confusion. The ingredients in RED* were removed before the first launch to keep our products all within the Gluten Free status.

Amazon.com does not have updated information which you will receive on our website, regarding our products which are all tested on a regular basis to ensure our gluten free status on ALL BARS!"

(*My email copied the ingredients list and I "red highlighted" the following ingredients: organic barley leaf grass juice powder, wheat grass juice powder, and natural flavors from their think Green cranberry apple flavor as an example.)

It's SO nice to be able to know a FULL product line is gluten-free!

My personal favorites are Larabars. There is cherry, apple, pecan, banana.... all of them are great.

Being a Christian isn't about religion. It's about a relationship with the One who made us. I'm so thankful to be one of His.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

Do not ask the Lord to guide your footstep, unless you are willing to move your feet.

God grant me the serenity to accept those I cannot change, to change the one I can,
and the wisdom to know its me.

I use Kind bars a lot. Nuts, coconut, raisins, dates ... I haven't checked if and how much my blood glucose rises when I eat them though. I'll be looking for something w/more protein.

There's also Think: www.thinkproducts.com/ppc.php

(I checked amazon for their products and they're there - but double check ingredients. Their site says they're gf, but amazon's ingredients lists are different and have gluten: barley and wheat grasses. Maybe they're upgrading/revamping and the site has the most up to date ingredients.) I've had these, too, and they're pretty good. You can check out my food pantry "favorites" under "Bars" for the ones I've tried that are gf and download them to your pantry if that helps. (And I've emailed THINK regarding the ingredients discrepancy and will report back when I hear something).

There's also www.boomibar.com for boomi or prana bars.

Clif nectar bars- they are not stamped "gluten-free" but the ingredients off of the dark chocolate walnut bar is as follows: Organic Dates, Organic Unsweetened Chocolate, Organic Cocoa, Organic Vanilla.
Now I'm not sure I'd want to eat one everyday for breakfast (I tend to eat them as more of a dessert bar) but they are tasty!

Enjoy life also has a chocolate bar that is good. Glutino makes breakfast bars in several flavors--As long as you aren't looking for the bars to taste like the flavors they say they are, then they are ok....nothing to write home about, but edible. Enviro-kids also has some GF bars available, but they are all very sweet (like kiddy cereals). I like them, but then I have a really bad sweet tooth.

I have tried a number of brands and this is the only one I like.

Enjoy life Caramel apple bar. They have another flavor, but can't remember what it was, I just know I didn't care for it. Hope this helps

With all my muscle and joint issues it takes a while for me to fully get up and get downstairs to the kitchen. So to make sure I have food in my stomach in the morning (and not kill my metabolism) I usually like to keep some pre-wrapped bars in my bedside table. (This also helps keep morning meds from upsetting my stomach.)

Unfortunately, my favorite breakfast bars - Luna Bars - have gluten. *sigh*

Though I've tried Soy Joy (which state that they ARE gluten free) - I don't love them.

What bars do you all use that are GF? (AND taste good!)
