The Pure Bar

Pure Bars are one of my favorite snacks. I take them everywhere! The kids love them, and they are all raw, organic, vegan, gluten-free, and delicious!

They were created right here in Michigan by Veronica Bosgraaf, and here is her story:

“When my daughter was six, we went to a petting zoo.
At the dinner table, she made the connection between the chicken on her plate and the animals that she had held. It was then that she made the decision to become a vegetarian.

I recognized this as an opportunity for us to explore a new way of eating together. There clearly was a lack of healthy vegetarian snacks in grocery stores, so we decided to create one of our own. Our requirements were stiff. We would only use real ingredients, organic fruits and healthy nuts untouched by harmful herbicides and pesticides. No refined sugars, no chemicals, no genetically-modified stuff. We wanted ingredients rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and omega-3 fats. Most importantly, it had to taste amazing.
After all, she was six.

Following hundreds of hours in the kitchen and dozens of dinner-table taste-tests, we perfected our recipes. We shared them with friends and family. They passed them to even more people. There was excitement about a bar that was cooked up in a kitchen instead of created in a lab. What I fed my daughter as a tasty, healthy snack had suddenly taken on a life of its own.

Pure Organic bars were born”.

You can buy them at my Store. The wild blueberry is my favorite!
