After an athletic mom and her marathon-running, allergic-to-milk son got fed up with the energy bar options on the market, they took matters into their own hands and came up with a customizable alternative that they call You Bars. On their site, customers can make up their own recipe to their exact specs, choosing from a variety of ingredients like almond butter, soy protein, shredded coconut, coffee crystals, rice cereal and vitamin infusions.

All organized by category (bases, sweeteners, dried fruits and berries, etc.), the straightforward set-up makes for foolproof ordering. There's even a feature that will calculate the approximate nutritional info. For the uninspired, You Bars offers a line of favorite flavors as well.

A custom case of 12 is $40 (a premade case is $30).
