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.

The sunflower fig bar tastes really great and it isn't too sweet. I wasn't sure if I would like this one but it is now one of my favorites. You can taste the fig but it isn't overpowering, just the right amount to make it chewy and really yummy.
So grateful to have these handy for home, travel, or a long day out. And a wonderful way to add beans to a healthy eating plan.
I love chocolate, but this is nice to mix it up. I love these to keep in my purse and tennis bag for a quick healthy snack. All good ingredients and Whole Foods plant-based! Very healthy which is my daily goal!
I love eating these bars!! You will never find anything more healthy! I love eating healthy and these bars can't be beat! They taste so good too!!
Love these bars! Somewhat remind me of Fig Newtons. I also like having a break from chocolate and nuts, and these guys are an awesome switch.
