A big thank you goes out to Adam from ProBar for giving me the pleasure of reviewing the “ultimate marriage of foods” and textures in their Fruition Bars in a medley of: oats, fruit, chia seeds, and cashews! With just 160 calories each, providing 4g of fiber and 2g of fat in each bar, these unprocessed 1.7oz. bars are nutritional powerhouses! The organic oats and pure fruit chunks create an insane chewy texture with a crunch addition from the chia seeds! Because the carbohydrates in this bar are complex, it just one of these guys will give you total sustained energy and the fiber from the cashews will hold you over for hours!
For those of you who are uneducated in the seeds department, chia seeds are as nutritionally dense as they are tiny!
They are also the highest known whole-food source of Omega-3 acids, which promote cardiovascular and mental health! They are a complete source of protein and provide all the essential amino acids!
Fruition bars are also sweetened with brown rice syrup, which ranks very low on the glycemic index charts. That means, it won’t cause your blood sugar to spike and there will be NO energy “crash”.
As if you haven’t heard me brag enough about these bars, here are some more stats to add to the list. They are 100% vegan, trans-fat free, and contain no artificial preservatives!
They can really satisfy those of you with a sweet tooth, too! The Peach was almost TOO sweet for my taste actually. Almost, being the key word ;) Good thing they come in other flavors too! There’s something for everyone: Peach, Blueberry, Cran-Raspberry, and Strawberry!
My personal favorite was a toss up between the Cran-Raspberry & the Blueberry. Both of them hit the nail on the head with the flavor factors.
