How to choose an energy bar that’s actually healthy? Tammy Lakatos Shames and Lyssie Lakatos, RDNs and personal trainers, advise looking for one with 100 to 220 calories, 0g trans fat, 10-20g sugar, less than 10% of the daily value for saturated fat, at least 3g of fiber (but ideally 5g or more), at least 4g protein, and an ingredient list that includes mostly whole grains and heart-healthy fats like nuts. Four of our faves:

RXBAR Chocolate Hazelnut:

Made with clean ingredients, this protein bar uses 100% cacao for a decadent flavor ($26 for 12, rxbar.com).

One Basix Cookie Dough Chocolate Chunk:

This bar has only 1g of sugar and an outrageously naughty flavor ($28 for 12, one1brands.com).

 

NuGo Fiber d’Lish Blueberry Cobbler Bar:

With 48% of the daily value (12g!) of fiber, this sweet and fruity snack is sure to fill you up until dinnertime ($25 for 16, nugonutrition.com).
