It’s that time again. The clock strikes three and the post-lunch lull has made its presence known. The hunger pangs are setting in and you’re thinking to yourself, “Didn’t I just eat lunch two hours ago?” We all know the feeling and we’ve all done that walk of shame down to the convenience store for a chocolate bar one too many times. However, more often than not, that processed, refined sugar-filled candy doesn’t even satisfy your hunger cravings, sending you deeper into that midday crash.

At Savoir Flair, we are all about healthier choices and we’ve come up with a surefire recipe to kill the mid-afternoon blues. These gooey bars are filled with peanut butter, banana, and Yemeni honey, and the addition of the chia seeds and oats will keep you energized and full for longer. There is also a good amount of cacao nibs included for the chocoholics, which makes these almost feel like soft cookie bars with a great crunchy texture. This refined sugar-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free snack will make you the envy of the office – unless you choose to share, of course.
