Having a bar on hand can make or break the hangries. That’s why I have officially dubbed the portable powerhouses to be my snacking MVP whether I’m on-the-go, between appointments or in need of an easy eat at home. Not all noms are created equal, though. Oh, and tracking down the most nutritious, best-tasting varieties is often easier said than done. But don't worry! Here are seven must-try snacks that are a simple click away from being on your doorstep, thanks to Amazon. See? Healthy eating can be a cinch!


BUY IT: Amazon, $29.30 for 15

Skip that coffee run! This Thunderbird pick-me-up provides Energizer Bunny pep, while satisfying that mocha fix in a flash. Whole Fair Trade coffee beans (delivering 5 mg of caffeine) together with dates, cacao and hazelnuts fulfill your coffee needs anytime of the day. It's no wonder I have the 15-pack on monthly auto-delivery!


BUY IT: Amazon, $34.99 for 12

Craving chocolate? Curb your sweet tooth with this 150-calorie raw, organic, handmade energy bar. With the tagline "Nature Unchanged," Raw Crunch products deliver dehydrated rather than cooked bars to help maintain their original concentrated nutrients and enzymes.


BUY IT: Amazon, $39.28 for 12

The holidays may be in the rearview mirror but that doesn't mean we have to pump the breaks on gingerbread, right? Packed with 12g of muscle-building protein courtesy of egg whites, almonds and cashews, it's the best good-for-you cookies you'll ever have.


BUY IT: Amazon, $38.56 for 15

Kale? In a bar? Yes, way. Sneak in your greens with this pleasantly sweet, six-ingredient winner for under 200 calories. Like many Larabar flavors, the Coconut, Kale and Cacao is chewy with a satisfying crunch. Pro Tip: Pop in the freezer to slow the gobbling down.


BUY IT: Amazon, $28.99 for 12

Listen up, apple pie lovers. This high protein (15g!) bar is free from most allergens and provides long-lasting energy for a fraction of the sugar found in a slice of your favorite fall dessert. I love sprinkling a chopped bar on top of my coconut yogurt.


BUY IT: Amazon, $29.99 for 12

Small but oh-so mighty! This nut-, gluten- and soy-free nugget is surprisingly refreshing with the perfect balance of citrus and fruity notes. Chewy dried raspberries and crunchy seeds enveloped by sunflower seed butter, figs and dates make for easy-to-stash squares that hold up on the trails or in your gym bag.


BUY IT: Amazon, $12.81 for 10

I've been a big fan of this raw, plant-powered brand for years. By sprouting their sesame seeds, nutrients such as fiber can be increased. Also noteworthy? The star ingredient spirulina (the blue-green algae that lends for this bar's health nut look) which may offer cancer-prevention and blood pressure support, though more research is needed.
