Bonk Breaker Energy Bars

Posted on

 All this running around lately has left me a lot less time for food prep & packing nutritious foods for fueling my workouts.  Between working full-time, hitting the gym for an hour or so a day, class for two hours, and studying, I’ve found it difficult to maintain high energy levels during my workouts.  Thankfully, Jason Winn, creator of Bonk Breakers sent me some of his amazingly delicious bars to try and I simply can’t keep them from you any longer! 

Each of these 2.2oz bars is packed with high quality, energy sustaining ingredients that will not only tide you over through a long workout, but give your body the fuel it needs to achieve maximum results without feeling heavy on your stomach!  They’re also free of dairy & wheat!

Jason’s story is pretty awesome!  He knows JUST what athletes need to simulate their bodies during athletics. 

After all, he’s an Ironman, himself!  A retired four-year college football player, converted to runner, biker, & swimmer, Jason realized after his first race the benefit that a great tasting energy bar could elicit.  He and his mother got to work in the kitchen right away and stumbled upon greatness after much trial and error.  The first to be born?  Peanut Butter & Jelly Bonk Breaker, my personal favorite!

The texture of each of these bars is the consistency of cookie dough!  If I didn’t tell you any differently, you would probably think you’d digging into a batch of the best-tasting pre-baked goods ever!  

In four flavors, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Peanut Butter & Banana, Peanut Butter & Dark Chocolate Chip, and Almond Butter & Honey, each delectable bite is chewy and moist.  Each is a combination of satiating organic rolled oats, brown rice syrup, soy protein isolate, brown rice flour, flaxseed meal, and evaporated cane juice with other varying factors such as natural crunchy peanut butter, blackberry jam, 70% cocoa chocolate chips, rice crisps, natural banana flavor, and natural almond butter.

  Here are the nutritionals for each bar:

Peanut Butter & Jelly

Peanut Butter & Dark Chocolate Chip

Peanut Butter & Banana

Almond Butter & Honey

Pretty impeccable if you ask me!  8g protein in each, 2g fiber, healthy fats (low saturated), wholesome carbs, and potassium to prevent muscle cramping!  “Endurance sports, particularly cycling and running,  “BONK”  describes a condition when the athlete suddenly loses energy and
fatigue sets in, resulting in a major performance drop. BREAK the DREADED BONK!”

I highly recommend for all you racers out there, whether it be bike, foot, or pool, find these and TRY them.  You will be amazed at the kind of output you’ll be able to put into your fitness routine with them behind you.  Here’s a list of retailers, where you can check to see where you can pick some up, or you can order online!

Thanks so much, Jason!  Bonk Breakers are amazing!
