Several times this summer, my gym and online personal training clients have asked me for granola or protein bar recommendations. Unfortunately, there are not many options that I can give them for an easy, and healthy summer snack bar!
Granola bars are often extremely high in sugar and processed items that we simply do not need in our bodies. In fact, granola bars packed with insoluble fiber and other ingredients often cause me major bloating and discomfort.
Disclaimer: Because I love all of you, and I want to be sure that you know you can always 100% trust my reviews and opinions, I have to tell you that this bar made me feel sick for a few hours. A couple weeks ago, we did some neighborhood clean up as a family on a Saturday morning. After we got home, I was pretty hungry, so I ate half of the AMRAP bar. It tasted good. Cole ate the second half and gobbled it right down. 15-30 minutes later I started feeling sick to my stomach — the kind of stomach discomfort I now get after eating eggs (very randomly, I’ve developed an intolerance to eggs). I laid down for a while and took some meds, but still felt sick, so the hubs looked at the AMRAP bar ingredients. It happened to have egg white protein, and I just happened to react negatively to it. I honestly thought that after taking a few weeks off from eating eggs, my body would tolerate the egg white protein better, but no such luck.
The hubs and kiddos enjoyed the remaining bars in the package and did mention that they filled him up. No one else in my little family is sensitive to eggs, so I would say the bars were a hit overall!
The AMRAP bars are tasty, and they are very “clean.” I think they are absolutely worth trying if you are looking for a healthy granola bar option and can tolerate egg white protein.
I do believe that these bars are nutritious and an option for pre or post workout fuel. I am very honored and thankful that I had the opportunity to review them, and I am thrilled to be able to offer you the chance to win a package so you can try them for yourself!
