NOTE DURING COVID – We are not making bear bars during covid lockdown as these are a shorter shelf life item. We will resume making these popular bars when our farmers markets are running again.
Bear bars are a very high energy slow energy release snack bar perfect for athletes and outdoor adventurers.
They are big bars, minimal weight 80g (weight will vary a little with each as they are hand made), and contain 15 different ingredients, with about equal amounts of seeds, nuts, fruit and grains (and no artificial extracts).
We moisten the bars with honey and coconut oil and sneak some Pic’s peanut butter into them.
How these bars work for you is that the fruit, nuts, seeds and grains will all digest at different rates so soon after eating one energy from the fruit starts arriving and energy will keep coming at a steady rate for a very long time as each of the foods in it digest at different rates.
Bear bars are endorsed by Jack Bauer, New Zealand international champion cyclist who declared them the best bar he had ever tried.
