Protein, without a doubt, is an essential part of a healthy diet. Research that suggests it helps in muscle recovery after a workout, keeps you feeling full, can contribute to weight-loss and much more. With all these benefits, it is no wonder that protein bars have become a staple in many people’s daily diet. But a word of caution – not all protein bars are created equal. Many brands are loaded with sugar and are essentially more of a glorified candy bar than a protein supplement.
So we set out to find a protein bar made up of the right building blocks with as many natural ingredients as possible. Our journey led us to Quest Bars by QuestionNutrition. These are quite possibly the best protein bars on the market. The 60g Quest Bars provide 20 grams of HQ whey/milk protein isolates – the purest most digestible form of protein powder – range from 170-210 calories, under 4 grams of net carbs and contain a low amount of naturally occurring sugar between 1g – 4g. The average bar contains 5g of fat. Nut bars do contain more fat because of the healthy fats from the nuts – the Coconut Cashew Bar contains 6g of fat. And all bars contain a COLOSSAL 17+ grams of fiber.
The fiber in Quest Bars comes from Isomalto-Oligosaccharides (IO), a plant-derived prebiotic (a non-digestible ingredient that stimulates bacterial activity in the gut. Read more about Isomalto-Oligosaccharides (IO) here.
Quest Bars have a chewy texture and taste amazing! They come in 17 flavors, including:
· Coconut Cashew
· Vanilla Almond Crunch
· Chocolate Peanut Butter
· Apple Pie
· Cinnamon Roll
· Chocolate Brownie
· Strawberry Cheesecake
· Mixed Berry Bliss
· Peanut Butter Supreme
· Lemon Creme Pie
· PB & J
· Cookies & Cream
· Double Chocolate Chunk
· White Chocolate Raspberry
· Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
· Banana Nut Muffin
And here’s a little secret – when the bars are warmed (pop in microwave for 10-15 seconds) they taste like a dessert and to top it off are super filling. Try this Quest Coconut Crusted Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough PB Ball recipe for a delicious protein packed bite!
Each Quest Bar has amazing flavor but some of our favorites were Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Double Chocolate and Apple Pie.
So as far as protein bars go, Quest Bars can’t be beat. The combination of high quality whey protein, 17+ grams of fiber, healthy fats and short readable list of all-natural ingredients make Quest Bars to best all-around protein bar you can choose!
