About Simply Bar: The Simply Bar is a small Canadian company that was founded in 2002. The founder, Cathy Richards, set out to create a bar that was both filling and easy to digest; high in protein and low in fat; low glycemic with a handful of natural ingredients. The result?
Each bar has 16 grams of protein, 2-4 grams of fat, under 3 grams of sugar, at least 4 grams of fiber, and 160 calories or less. They are also considered a good source of iron. The Simply Bar is a natural protein bar with more fiber than sugar!
The bars are sweetened with organic brown rice syrup, rate low on the glycemic index, and contain no refined sugars. Each flavor contains 10 ingredients or less – and they are all things you can pronounce! All bars are certified vegan, gluten-free, and kosher.
The One Green Planet Verdict: In terms of ingredients and nutrition it’s hard to beat these bars. A natural protein bar with more fiber than sugar? Pretty amazing! And packing 16 grams of protein into a 150 calorie bar is also quite a feat. But the real question…how do they taste?
Well, we loved them! Overall, the texture is pleasantly crunchy, like a less sticky version of a crispy rice bar. The Cinnamon Pecan and Lemon Coconut flavors were definitely our favorites. But all the flavors were true to their names, and they all tasted very natural.
With a clean list of ingredients, a significant dose of protein, and low sugar content, these bars were in fact quite satisfying as well as easy to digest. They proved to be a great option before or after a workout, as an on-the-go snack, or with some fruit or a smoothie for breakfast. Highly recommended!
