Max’s Bars are the perfect snack bar – like sweet and salty granola bars, but better.


sweet and salty granola

Our new gluten free granola bars are made with simple ingredients you can see in every bite. They’re the perfect grab and go healthy snack, packed with flavor and wholesome goodness.

whole grains

Whole Grains

Whole grain oats give our bars their just-right texture, as well as fiber and essential nutrients, making them a healthy grain snack. We like to think of them as oat energy bar powerhouses!

nuts and seeds

Nuts & Seeds

Dry roasted almonds, almond butter and sunflower seeds offer protein and a delightful crunch in every bite. (Say hello to your new favorite healthy almond snack.)

natural sweetness

Natural Sweetness

Our tasty snack bars get their sweetness naturally from dates, raisins and honey. We believe these are the best energy bars you can buy!

made in small batches

Made in Small Batches

We make our gluten free granola bars in small batches — cold formed and cut to size. Blending them (the way most bars are made) would be easier and cheaper, but we want our bars to have texture and flavor you can see, so we do it the hard way.

Max's Bars are very fresh. You can taste each ingredient and its individual flavor.


There's a homemade goodness to the bars that feels really natural.


These are refreshingly good. Some bars are bland, but these don't sacrifice flavor.


The texture is so unique. Some bars are stale, but Max's Bars always taste fresh.  


I like the texture, and that each bite is a little different, but consistent. It gives them a homemade feel.

our story

Max’s Bars got their start at Max’s Café in downtown Minneapolis. Our founder Max wanted to create a bakery case-worthy snack that was as good looking as it was delicious. Armed with a food processor, cookie sheet and rolling pin, he set out to make the ultimate grab and go healthy snack. What resulted was Max’s Bars: the perfect snack bar packed with simple ingredients, just the right texture, and undeniably delicious.


The bars became so popular at the café as a healthy snack with coffee that Max started packaging some to sell at the register and on the café’s website. A few local shops around Minneapolis even picked them up. The momentum was building.

Then in 2020 the COVID-19 pandemic hit the café hard. It was heartbreaking, but also provided Max with the time and determination to officially launch Max’s Bars out into the world. Now anyone, anywhere can enjoy the wholesome goodness of our favorite bars.

our promise

At Max’s Bars, taste rules all. We never skimp or take shortcuts. We only feed you food that we would feed our family. And we always welcome everyone at our table.

We’re here to make snacking enjoyable, fulfilling and, most importantly, delicious. We believe snacks should be good for you, and also just plain good. As Max says, food that doesn’t taste good isn’t worth eating.

our family

Food and family are at the center of all we do. Our founder Max grew up in a family of chefs, surrounded by good food and hospitality. He was brought up to believe food doesn’t have to be complicated or fancy to be welcoming and delicious.


To this day, we’re a family business. Max’s mom collaborates on recipe ideas and his dad helps guide the business. His wife Sarah keeps him grounded and his two young sons are his biggest fans (and critics).
