Skratch Labs Cookies
Take away the stigma that cookies are just an indulgence and it’s clear that homemade cookies from scratch are a great alternative to many prepackaged snacks.
Compared to many bars, cookies are nutritionally similar and easier to eat and digest because they’re simpler, have more moisture, and lack excess ingredients.

For years professional athletes who rely heavily on energy bars to fuel themselves in training and racing have complained that the bars they ate were too dry, too hard to chew, sat in their bellies and guts like bricks, and just didn’t taste good. We took that feedback and challenged ourselves to make something better, and to help athletes be better. The outcome?
The Anytime Energy Bar.
KEEPS YOU FUELED AND FULL: Skratch Labs Anytime Energy Bars were designed as a fuel source for when you need it most. We kept the bar as simple as possible, using the fewest number of whole food ingredients without sacrificing taste. Made with 50% less sugar than traditional energy bars, the right macronutrient profile, and real food that's real good for you.
FOR ANYTIME YOU NEED A BOOST: This nutritional profile makes this bar suitable for use anytime one is hungry and needs a mixed macronutrient profile. Eat anytime you want to perform at your best - while it’s a great piece of the fueling strategy in the middle of an endurance event or race - it’s also appropriate as a snack while hungry at the office or on the way to a workout.
