I have been experimenting with new protein bars. It is important to remember that carbs is the way to go in terms of protein bars, but also look at fiber. You can subtract fiber grams from carbs to get net carbs. I tried the new Luna Protein bar at 12g of protein, 17g of carbs, minus 3g of fiber totaling 14g net carbs. (Purchased it at Target)
It was pretty good, AND GLUTEN FREE, but I still prefer my Nature Valley Protein Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate bar, which is not gluten-free, (there is also a Peanut, Almond, and Dark Chocolate one and a Salted Caramel Nut with similar info), and I love that it is DARK CHOCOLATE with 10g of protein, 14g of carbs with 5g of fiber, so that is 9g net carbs. Still loving it more. (Available online or at Target and Costco)
My sister-in-law told me about a KIND protein bar and I will be trying that tomorrow and report back. The one she told me about, I could not find (Nuts and Sea salt), but I found one at Trader Joes that was chocolate and peanut butter, so I will report its taste and if it could possibly be better than my favorite Nature Valley Bar. This is gluten and wheat free, which is better for my diet! So, I hope I like it. 7g of protein and 17g of carbs, 3g of fiber, so it is 14g net carbs. I will keep you apprised of my results.
