I found the name a little misleading at first, so I want to clarify: the 'maca' in the name refers to the macadamia nuts in the bars, not the superfood root Maca. There is no Maca in these bars.
But there is Anahola granola - it's a true granola bar in that these bars are essentially compressed granola.
They have plenty of healthful whole food ingredients and go for the natural option whenever possible. With the vanilla extract and the sweetness of the bars, they can definitely double as a healthier treat (or a gateway to health food bars for those who are just staring their healthy living journey).
The bars are crunchy with a little chew, like thick oatmeal cookies. The addition of the macadamia nuts to all of the bars definitely adds that exotic flavor that makes you think of the islands!
For a snack that tastes like a treat, 2g of fiber and only 12g of sugar isn't bad at all. It's a snack that will keep you going, whether you're boogie-boarding in Hawaii or working 9 to 5!
