Build Your Own Energy Bars


By Cari Martens

Straight out of the trend toward do-it-yourself, make-it-my-way (that we call Deity Complex) comes Element Bars, custom protein and energy bars using all-natural ingredients. allows users to design their own custom energy bar by selecting ingredients and then naming their bar.

This start up company, which just launched its online store, allows you to pick a base “texture” for your bar, with options such as “crispy” or “oaty.” Then you can add from a selection of fruits, nuts, candies and powdered supplements. What’s more, the site will warn you if any of your combinations are likely to turn out less than ideal.

The site assures you of “all-natural ingredients that are either unprocessed or have been minimally processed to best preserve each ingredient’s nutritional benefits.” If taste matches convenience, build-your-own may just come into its own!
