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. Five of our faves:

Nii Berry Cashew Bar:

Cashew butter, sprouted quinoa, and rice protein load this organic, gluten-free, and soy-free bar with 6g of protein ($33 for 12, niibar.com).
