I’ve finally discovered the perfect cheat treat. It’s not even really a cheat, its actually one of the best quality protein bars out there. Quest Nutrition Bars! You can eat them straight as they are, warm them in the microwave, broil them in the oven, bake them, or add them to cereals, yogurts and anything you desire!
They have about 20 grams of protein, 1 gram of sugar, 20 grams of carbs, 10+ grams of fiber and under 200 calories. A couple of reasons that I really like these protein bars are they don’t have any odd flavor additives that upset my stomach, they are relatively large in comparison to most protein bars 🙂 , they taste amazing, and have very few straight forward ingredients.
I buy mine on iherb.com and amazon and my local GNC when I’m out. They’re perfect for snacks, pre workout, post workout, breakfast and dessert. Iherb allows you to get $5 or $10 off your first order if you use the code “wow123” or will provide you a code when you sign up as well. If you’re interested in buying single flavors you can do so on their website at questproteinbar.com Use the code “onaquest” for free shipping.
My favorite flavors so far are Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Cookies n’ Cream, Double Chocolate Chunk and White Chocolate Raspberry! They really do satisfy a sweet tooth and I never feel guilty eating them...unless I eat more than two a day because they’re not as cheap 😉 I think I like these flavors the most because they have huge chocolate chips that taste amazing! Sometimes I put them in the microwave and put melty peanut butter on top as a dessert, its so good!
