Galit Laibow, Greg Fleishman and Sarah Michelle Gellar, parents and longtime friends, were touched by the unbeatable way baking helped them connect with their kids. Amazed at the absence of options to make it more natural and accessible, they made their own. They still try everything in their own kitchens and keep us searching for ever more inventive ways to bring baking back and make it better, with people and planet equally in mind.

Plus, each batch bakes 16 bars in only 25 minutes at half the cost of leading ready to eat bars! It's a little convenience, and a whole lot of taste!
Finally, the tools are all here. ORGANIC, NON-GMO plus regenerative ingredients like BIODYNAMIC cane sugar & IDENTITY PRESERVED FLOUR that you’ll be totally cool with. MORE FLOUR TO YA.

On the upside, they're super easy to prepare - just mix 1/4 cup vegetable oil and 2 Tbsp of water with the contents of the pouch, press into a 8 x 8 inch baking pan and bake on 325 for 25 minutes. I was pleased at how easily they mixed up and how uniformly flat I was able to get them in the pan. Once they are completely cooled and cut, they're nearly indistinguishable from store bought bars. They came out super crispy (despite the fact that they're described as "chewy" on the package) and the Chocolate/Coconut flavor is sinfully delicious.
But back to the nutritional content - after oats and chocolate chips (which also contain sugar), the next two ingredients are cane sugar and brown sugar. If you cut this into 16 bars, as instructed, each bar contains 10 grams of sugar and 18 grams of carbohydrates (just in case you're a carbo-phobe). However, if you prefer bars that are wider than one inch, they're going to have an even higher sugar/carb content than that. Personally, I made 12 bars, which came out ever-so-slightly narrower than a store bought granola bar. Also, I found the nutrition facts to be potentially misleading because they don't state whether the fat content listed is with or without the addition of the 1/4 cup of oil. Meaning that they might also have considerably more fat than 4.5 grams per serving. Since they're kind of greasy, I intend to try cutting back slightly on the oil next time and see if they come out as well.
These are a delicious and slightly decadent alternative to store bought granola bars. If you want to eat all organic, non-GMO ingredients and don't mind putting in a little work, these will be perfect for you. However, if you're interested in cutting back on sugar, carbs or fat, not only are these no big improvement over the major label brands, but you also have to go through the trouble of mixing them, baking them, cleaning the dishes and finding a way to store them.
Food for thought.
