Blue Dinosaur Paleo Bars are the go-to snack for clean eating Australians. The bars are vegan, 100% gluten and dairy free, and we're one of the only snack bar companies in the world that makes everything by hand in small batches.

Blue Dinosaur Paleo Bars were created when founder Mike Watts-Seale couldn’t find anything healthy that tasted any good to compliment his training when he was on the go. “I didn’t want to start a business, I genuinely just wanted a good tasting, healthy snack,” Mike says. After employing his Nan’s baking prowess, and a little trial and error Mike arrived at a delicious, wholesome snack filled with actual health benefits that he baked at home using 5 ingredients and a household food processor. Its that simple. "To me everything tasted the same, balls, bites and bars mushed together into a datey mess. I worked out that 99% of ball and bar companies used a process called extrusion, where you stick all your ingredients into a giant machine and they get pressed within an inch of their life through a giant sieve. Its terrible, all of the integrity is squashed out of the ingredients; the good oils, natural flavours and most of all taste".

Blue Dinosaur bars are hand made in small batches at a country bakery. Made with only five ingredients, and no added sugar—dates are used instead of sugar as a sweetener. There’s no added colours, flavours, or preservatives, and the bars come in a range of flavours based on Mike’s Nan’s classic baking recipes. With clean, healthy eating fast becoming a part of everyday life, Blue Dinosaur is excited to continue the honest, no compromise approach to healthy snack bars, bites and protein bars!
