We love healthy food finds. And we love chocolate. So when a food find includes chocolate, we couldn't be happier.

Nature Valley started creating granola bars before grocery stores had entire aisles filled with the latest in protein bars, low-carb bars, and no-sugar bars. Their crunchy granola bars were one of the first to trail-blaze the concept of portable, nutritious and sports-inspired snacks.

The Nature Valley line includes a variety of bars, from the classic Nature Valley Crunchy Oats 'n Honey to the Sweet and Salty Peanut bar. Just a few months ago, they launched the Oats 'n Dark Chocolate flavor to their original Crunchy line. As a huge Nature Valley Crunchy bar fan, these bars have become a staple on-the-go breakfast or chocolate indulgence for me.Nature Valley Oats 'n Dark Chocolate Crunchy Granola Bars mix together dark chocolate pieces, oats, and crisp rice nuggets. The bars are full of classic crunch and whole grain goodness, making them a perfect natural snack that's high in fiber and protein, but low in saturated fat.

Each package contains two bars. One bar has 90 calories or you can eat the entire package and clock in only 180 calories. The package also contains six grams of fat, 12 grams of sugar, two grams of fiber, and four grams of protein.

Unlike some energy bars, which can pack an entire meal's worth of calories and as much sugar as a candy bar, Nature Valley sticks to just a few natural ingredients and let's the flavor of whole oats and dark chocolate shine through.

Happy snacking!
