Our Story

Crafting snacks since 2009

A little history...

We like to think of Skout Organic as small, yet mighty. Our team has been crafting better snacks for more than a decade. What started in 2009 as a homemade trailbar baked for PNW excursions has become Skout Organic as you know it today.

A few recipes in, 2018 landed us in Austin, TX with more excitement about our snacks than we ever would've imagined. The introduction of a new line of Protein Bars led to the launch of our Kids Snack Bars in 2019 and our coveted Small Batch flavors in 2021. Soft-Baked Cookies joined our lineup in the spring of 2023 with an enthusiastic response.

Thank you for being here and for making these organic snacking dreams a reality! Here's to many more years of happy snacking!

ALWAYS Organic, Plant-Based, and Simple

Our Promise to You

Whether it's Snack Bars or Soft-Baked Cookies, great taste will always be our first ingredient. And great taste can only be achieved by using the best-quality organic ingredients nature has to offer.

Why sacrifice quality for flavor when you can have both? This is Skout, and this is what organic deserves to taste like.

    Our commitment to using only a handful of the finest ingredients is something we take seriously. The time and hard work that goes into our sourcing allows us to maintain an extremely clean and simple ingredient list.

    What do we mean by “simple”?

    • Our bars are made with 7 or less ingredients.
    • All of our ingredients are from fruit or plants that could be grown in your backyard.
    • You don't need a chemistry degree to understand our ingredients lists. Every ingredient used in our bars is both familiar and pronounceable.
  • Super Yummy

    Why are Skout Organic snacks so yummy?

    • When it comes to snacking, Skout Organic believes nature got it right the first time. Which is why we choose to use simple ingredeints like fruits, nuts, and seeds to make our snacks!
    • Every ingredient used to make Skout Organic snacks is certified organic, letting their natural flavors shine!
    • Dates make up the base of each of our snack bars, giving them a smooth texture and a natural sweetness without having to add any sugar!

Allergen Testing Process

Skout Organic is committed to making delicious snacks that can be enjoyed by everyone. In order to provide a product that is allergen friendly, we take extensive measures throughout our supply chain to avoid cross contamination and cross contact with Gluten, Dairy, Soy, Grain, Wheat, and Eggs, consistent with Current Good Manufacturing Practices regulations. We also offer select products that are free of nuts (see Nut Allergen section at the link below).
Some of the important allergen control measures we take are summarized on the following page.

Small Batch

In an effort to consistently provide your taste buds with a variety of new and deliciously unique flavors, we have been hard at work curating some of the finest organic ingredients to innovate our new Small Batch bars. These Small Batch flavors are baked in limited quantities and go really fast. When they're gone they're gone. We always get the "please save me a box" comments when someone discovers their new favorite snack!
