Gluten-Free LUNA Bars for Healthy Holiday Snacking!

Because they have never contained any artificial petroleum-derived ingredients, we've been a fan of LUNA Bars for quite some time! But now they're even better! ALL flavors of LUNA bars have been made gluten-free as well; even the cookie bits in the S'mores and Chocolate Peppermint Stick flavors! And of course their brand new Chocolate Cupcake flavor! (Whoa, Mama!)

Many thanks to LUNA Bar for sponsoring today’s story and creating delicious gluten-free snacks! 

My 1st Grader loves the gluten-free Lemon Zest LUNA Bar the best, but anything chocolate will do as well, and asks me every day if I can send one as her snack for school! And I gotta say, as a Mama dealing with dietary restrictions and being pulled in eleventy-three directions with normal everyday stuff plus all the holiday season stuff, it's nice having an easy healthy gluten-free bar grab-and-go option for snack... or even part of a quick Mama breakfast!

How do you fortify yourself during the holiday season? Do you squeeze in your shopping while the kids are at school? Do you have time to stop for more than a quick bite? What better way to refuel during a marathon shopping spree, a family plane trip, or the long drive to Grandma's house than a gluten-free LUNA Bar?

LUNA's gluten-free switch is still so new, so as stores transition their inventory be sure to look for the pink GLUTEN FREE label before you buy!

Other than the LUNA Protein bars, all LUNA Bars are also dairy-free, making these dye-gluten-dairy-free bars an essential in our pantry!
Additional LUNA Bar details:
- Low glycemic index
- Made with 70% organic ingredients
- NO artificial colors or flavors or synthetic preservatives
- Good source of protein and fiber

- Vegan-friendly (other than the Honey Salted Peanut flavor, which contains honey)
- Non-GMO
- Under 200 calories

My kids and I love the crunchy texture mixed with just the right amount of chewy. And unlike most protein and snack bars, LUNA Bars have almost no chalkiness! Plus these are tasty enough, my kids treat them as dessert! Win for Mama!
