I was at Costco the other day stocking up on Almond Breeze and hummus when this caught my eye. It’s not a granola bar…
It’s a protein bar called the Simply Bar!
You see, I don’t usually eat protein bars because:
- They are high in calories, carbs, and sugar.
- I like to get my protein from minimally processed/natural/”real” food.
But I bought a pack of these because of their amazing nutritional stats. 160 calories, 16g of protein, 3g of sugar, 4g of fibre, 4g of fat, and made from only nine ingredients! Wow.So far, I have tried the Peanut Butter Chocolate, Caramel Peanut, and Lemon Coconut. (More posts on those later!) My favourite is the Lemon Coconut because of the intense coconut and lemon flavours. The tartness of the lemon cuts out the sweetness, making it light and balanced, while the coconut on top gives it a nice texture.
I highly recommend these because they are the best protein bars I’ve ever had. See if your Costco carries them. If not, many health and wellness stores might have them in stock. And if you just can’t find them in stores, shop online at http://www.thesimplybar.com.
Have a wonderful weekend!
