When choosing a protein bar there are so many choices. From brands, how much protein is in them, ingredients, sugar, carbs & flavors.
Protein bars are great for pre & post work out, for that afternoon slump, and also good for when you are on the go.
A little about these bars:
The G2G bars are all completely natural, 99.9% lactose-free, and use many organic ingredients. The bars do not contain any refined sugar; instead they are sweetened with honey, brown rice syrup, and coconut crystals. They contain flaxseed and coconut oil, and are flavored with cinnamon and vanilla. The bars are high in protein, which comes from whey isolate, peanut & almond butters, (freshly ground) and oats. In addition to fantastic taste and satisfaction, the ingredients in the G2G bars possess countless health benefits.
- Whey Protein: rapid-digesting protein that feeds muscle tissue and helps in muscle recovery
- Whole Oats: lowers cholesterol, reduces risk of heart disease, stabilizes blood sugar
- Flaxseed: promotes bone health, protects against heart disease, cancer and diabetes
- Coconut Oil: supports tissue healing, protects against osteoporosis, reduces inflammation
- Honey: anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal
- Cinnamon: anti-microbial, helps control blood sugar, improves colon health
I heard its best to look for a protein bar with a protein to sugar ratio to keep the blood sugar balanced. These bars have 18 grams of protein & 15 grams of sugar. There is also 4 gram of fiber in each bar to help keep blood sugar stable & full longer.
I like that these bar have no preservatives. You should refrigerate these bars for maximum freshness & taste. They will also last longer, up to 8 months or one month our of the fridge.
The first ingredient is either freshly ground peanut butter or almond butter! YUMM! I love making my own nut butters at Whole Foods because I think they taste better. Well this goes for these bars.. they taste fantastic!
Each bite , especially in the peanut butter flavors are so creamy. They are one of the best protein bars I have tasted. Each bar has weight to it, have a good thickness, & fills you up.
When Good2Go sent me their 4 yummy flavors to try I was pretty excited.
- Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip
- Almond Chocolate Chip
- Peanut Butter Fruit Nut
- Almond Fruit Nut
Also knowing that these bars are made in the U.S , made with organic ingredients , no refined sugar, & no preservatives I was ready to try them all.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip
The first bite you could taste the peanut butter. Each bite is so creamy & smooth. There are small pieces of peanuts throughout the bar ( which you can see in the photo) as well as chocolate chips which compliments well with the peanut butter. This combo is perfect. Each bite I thought is this really good for me? Yes it is nom nom nom It almost reminded me of cookie dough.
Almond Chocolate Chip
These were still creamy & smooth but I think because it almond it was a tad drier than the peanut butter bar but still delicious. There was a subtle flavor of the almonds along with vanilla. There were almonds pieces & chocolate chips throughout making each bite heavenly.
Peanut Butter Fruit Nut
Again creamy, smooth, peanut buttery deliciousness. I didn’t get too much fruit flavor but when I did it reminded me over peanut butter & jelly. Small pieces of peanuts throughout the bar.
I think these are just a smidge smaller than the ones with chocolate but still hefty & filling.
Almond Fruit Nut
Subtle almond & vanilla flavor & hint of some fruit. Almond pieces throughout. Again a little drier than the peanut butter one but that is how almonds are.
These were delicious, it was love at first bite. Each bite I thought am I really eating something healthy? Yes..yes I am. With these being creamy & smooth , the consistency was sort of like a drier cookie dough. If this doesn’t make you want to try it, I don’t know what will. I really like that I can look at the ingredient list and read and understand all the ingredients. I was also surprised with the weight & size of each bar. Packed with protein & good for you ingredients.
With these being completely all natural with no refined sugars (only sweetened with honey, brown rice syrup, and coconut crystals you can feel good about eating them. The high protein is great for a pre /post work out or even a snack to keep you held over until your next meal. They help satisfy a sweet tooth, fill me up , & gave me an energy boost.
