REVIEW – I’m still enjoying my quest to find the absolute best tasting, affordable, Keto meal bars on the market, and today I have a new brand to introduce to you. I’m going to tell you about Atlas Bar adaptogen-powered Keto protein bars.
What is it?
Atlas bars are Keto-friendly low carb high protein meal replacement bars that are formulated to keep you full and satisfied until your next meal.
Atlas bars are available in six flavors that include Vanilla Almond Chai, Almond Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter & Raspberry, Chocolate Cacoa, Mint Chocolate Chip, and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip.
The bars are all between 210-230 calories, 3 or 4 grams of carbs, and 15 or 16 grams of protein which makes them great for people like myself who are on a low carb or Keto diet because they won’t spike blood sugar.
The bars are also non GMO, gluten free, and soy free. The protein comes from grass-fed whey. Here are the nutritional facts for the Chocolate Cacao flavor which is one of my favorites.
They have no funky ingredients and are sweetened with Allulose and Monk Fruit Extract. Yay!
Atlas are adaptogen powered. What does that mean? According to Atlas, the Organic KSM-66 Ashwagandha ingredient in each bar is a potent science-backed adaptogen revered for centuries around the world as “nature’s gift to mankind.” The claim is that this ingredient helps to burn fat, aid in workout recovery, builds muscle, helps with stress, fights fatigue, and boosts endurance. I’ve eaten all the bars sent to me in the sample box and I can’t say I agree or disagree with these claims. All I know is that they taste good and my stomach doesn’t growl for 3-4hrs after eating one.
The chocolate cacao flavor smells like a tootsie roll and tastes pretty similar to one. It’s a little chewy, rich chocolatey flavor without being bitter, not too sweet, and has little chunks of nuts in it. Yum!
The peanut butter raspberry flavor is like the bar above, but in addition to small chunks of peanuts, it also has little bits of raspberry. Love the raspberry except that along with the bits of the fruit comes a few raspberry seeds which always get stuck in my teeth.
The chocolate mint flavor is also really good without being too minty. I think the flavor is more chocolate than mint.
Vanilla almond chai is probably my least favorite, but if someone gave me a box, I’d still happily eat them.
The almond chocolate chip is another flavor that I wouldn’t buy for myself, but I wouldn’t turn my nose up at a box.
The peanut butter chocolate chip ranks the same as the chocolate cacao as far as my favorite flavor. It’s really good, but then I love chocolate and peanut butter.
I recommend that you buy their sample box for $20 which has one of each flavor. That way you can see which ones you like most and then build your own box with just those flavors. Boxes of 15 bars are $39.95 (when you subscribe) which works out to $2.66 for each bar. You can also get a 30 count box which brings the price per bar down to $2.50.
You can also buy them on Amazon in different configurations/bar count.
What I like
- Good ingredients
- Good per bar price
What I’d change
I have enjoyed
testing eating the Atlas bars. They taste good, have great ingredients, don’t spike my blood sugar, aren’t too expensive per bar, and you can build a custom box with just the flavors that you like. If you’re going low carb, keto, or just want a healthier alternative to the junk food protein bars you find at your local grocery store, check out Atlas bars. I think you’ll like them.
