Bars without oats, but rather only nuts dried berries and other seeds are increasingly common nowadays, but is there a word for them? If not in English, then maybe there is a word that could be borrowed?

Sample sentence: these aren't granola bars since they don't have grains in them; they are BLANK.

  • I eat these things sometimes and I don't think there's a standard name, based on what the packets say

  • Maybe we can come up with a name for them like 'Stuffed Bars' or anything else, that suits better. Mar 4, 2018 at 4:45

According to a list of food network recipes, they use various names including: snack bar, protein bar, and energy bar.

And the last one I saw was breakfast bar from this BBC recipe.

Here are a list of names for products that already exist.

KIND Breakfast Bars
Probar Energy Bars
Rise Protein Bars
Larabar Fruit and Nut Bars
Larabar Nut and Seed Bars
Raw Revolution Fruit, Nut & Seed Super Food Bar
Health Warrior Chia Bar

As you can see from this list, it is also popular to call the bar something more specific based on what exactly is inside the bar (fruits, nuts, seeds, etc).

  • "Energy bars", I call them.
