If we had it our way, we’d have all the time in the world to cook ourselves nourishing meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with plenty of time to spare. The reality is that even the most organized among us can be overtaken by a busy schedule; sometimes, we just don’t have enough time to plan ahead.

When we’re on the go and want to fuel ourselves quickly and efficiently, we’ve trained ourselves to forgo candy bars for energy bars instead. Specifically, we have grown accustomed to relying on different raw, vegan energy bars and bites.

Raw, or mostly raw, bars are manufactured to ensure that you remain upright and operating at your best without any sugar spikes. They are often comprised of wholesome ingredients that taste great and make you feel energized and ready to power through your day successfully. Check out some of our recommendations for raw-esome, vegan energy bars and bites below!
