I have been bringing samples of healthy snack bars to my classes for my ladies to taste and thought I would look at each of these bars in terms of nutrition, benefits and recommendations.

So, let’s look at 5 of the most easily accessible snack/protein bars:

 

Eat Natural Fruit & Nut Bar Dark Chocolate

Nature Valley Crunchy Oats & Honey

Nakd Cocoa & Orange

Trek Peanut Power Energy Bar

9 Bar Super Seeds Fruity Carob Hit

 

Eat Natural Fruit & Nut Bar Dark Chocolate:

Gluten free, vegetarian (not vegan)

Does include glucose syrup, honey and cocout which make it sweet

18.3g Sugars

2.1g Protein

 

Nature Valley Crunchy Oats & Honey:

Oat gluten, wheat free, vegetarian (not vegan)

Does include sugar as the second ingredient and honey

11.9g Sugar for both bars

3.4g Protein

 

Nakd Cocoa & Orange:

Only 4 ingredients Dates, Cashews, Raisins, Cocoa with orange flavour.

Gluten free, 100% vegan, 1 of 5 a day

No added sugar or syrups

13.6g Sweetness from dates

3.9g protein

 

9 Bar:

Gluten free, vegan, packed with seeds

Carob is a great source of magnesium and helps with chocolate cravings

11.4g sugars

5.8g protein

202mg magnesium 54% of RDA

 

From this I am reassured that my usual ‘go to’  bars that I enjoy are 9 Bars and Nakd Bars and these give me the biggest punch of protein with less sugar.

Please be sure to watch my recent Scope on this too. Follow me @Lisa_Barwise.
