Did you know that pinto beans contain antioxidants called polyphenols, which may prevent certain types of cancer? Pinto beans also contain a flavanoid (kaempferol) that's known to reduce inflammation. These beneficial phytonutrients appear to slow the growth of tumors and increase the survival rate of healthy cells.
Also, the fiber content of beans may contribute to the reduction in risk of breast cancer seen in women who eat more legumes.
Not only that, but many eaters of WellBean have sheepishly admitted that "things flowed better" and "the pipes ran more smoothly" after eating just one of our bean-based bars.

I love the sunflower fig bars. They taste great and are a great snack food to get energy when hiking or working out.
I have tried all of your bars, but like this one the best. Knowing that they are so good for me makes me like them even more!
This is my favorite flavor!! So good.
Makes a great snack or meal replacement on the run. It keeps me full and I feel good knowing that it’s good for me.
These are so handy to have around. I keep them in the freezer for a quick snack or to have if I know I do not have time for a meal on my way out the door. Love the taste and texture.
Love this bar. This with a cup of hot tea and I'm filled up for a few hours. And they are yummy.
