I used to be a bar fanatic. I would buy Kashi Bars, Pure Protein Bars, Kind Bars , Lara Bars and Think Thin Bars by the case full. I thought these bars were a healthy snacking alternative, until I started reading what was in them. Kashi added sugar and grains. Pure Protein and Think Thin were loaded with sugar alcohols and chemicals. Kind Bars had added sugar and honey (though they are still something I will grab for hiking as a treat at the summit). Lara Bars are the closest thing to a healthy bar that I had come across (with the exception of the Epic Bar ) in a long time that was delicious, nutritious and filling. Enter OU81!!
OU81 (Oh You Ate One) come in three delicious flavors like Coconut Cranberry , Chocolate Coffee and Chocolate Cherry . “The OU81 bar is a primal all-natural, gluten-free, grain-free nutritional bar composed primarily with the following ingredients; pumpkin seeds, almonds, dates, dried fruit, organic virgin coconut oil, grass fed whey protein powder, raw honey, pure vanilla extract and sea salt.” It doesn’t get much better than that!
I wish I had more pictures to show you, butttttt…..I sorta ate them before I had a chance to snap a picture!! Here’s the nutrition info for these little guys:
The bars were delicious and were super filling!! It was nice to be able to have a crunch, salty and sweet bar for long days at the gym or on a hike. These would definitely keep in your purse, car or gym bag. I try not to eat “sweetened” things (triggers my stinkin sugar addiction) but these are definitely something I would turn to for days when I needed that little carb boost.
So, head on over to OU81 Bite and check out their awesome site and get some bars!!!
