Good On Ya Breakfast Bar

We all eat on the go.  Despite efforts to plan meals, at some point we all find ourselves grabbing something as we head out the door.  My “go to” snack is often a Good On Ya Breakfast Bar.  Why?  I love the taste, and I recognize every organic, vegan ingredient listed on the nutrition panel.

Kristen Buchanan, a former Olympic athlete, founded Good On Ya in 2001.  The company is dedicated to creating quality products.  Good On Ya lives by its motto, “every ingredient matters.”  All of the ingredients used in the Good On Ya Breakfast Bar are organic and non-GMO.  The bars are also free from gluten, soy, and dairy.

So what exactly is in the Good On Ya Breakfast Bar?  Raw hemp seeds, raisins, maple syrup, sunflower seeds, dark chocolate, sprouted flax, Brazil nuts, unfiltered olive oil, ground vanilla pods, and Celtic sea salt.   The breakfast bar is moist with contrasting sweet and salty flavors.  I always feel satisfied and happy after I finish a bar.

The Good On Ya Bar comes in multiple flavors.  However, be aware that the Breakfast Bar is the only flavor that is vegan (the other flavors use honey).

  • Thanks for the awesome review.

    We LOVE that we use hemp protein too, such an amazing source of protein for vegans!

    We do use raw, organic ethically sourced honey in the other 3 flavors, so check those out if that resonates with you.

      I personally really like the bars! I eat them all of the time. However, no product is universally appealing to everyone. Thanks for sharing your opinion. Does anyone else have strong opinions about the Good On Ya Bars?
