Disclosure: Keto Bars is my sponsor of the month. However, the words and thoughts below are my own.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried to make a keto-friendly granola or bar of some sort that I could make in advance and take with me on the road. I’m not much of a baker, and I like to cook on the edge, so the exactness of baking just doesn’t seem to be my niche.
So a few months ago, here comes Keto Bars, basically plopped into my lap by way of Keto Krate. I split the first bar with my husband, and it’s the last time I’ve split one since!
It’s like a moist, soft, coconutty brownie, full of good fats from coconut and no artificial sweeteners or fiber. When they signed up to be my sponsor of the month (<–disclosure) I was pretty excited when they sent a box of their goodies, but also dove head first into their Keto Shakes which are served hot. That’s on my list, so don’t let me get to far.
Here are ten good reasons why I love Keto Bars and why I think you will too:
1. Keto Bars can be eaten anywhere. The weather is starting to get nice and I’m itching to get on our local bike path and get back to hiking. There aren’t many nutritionally viable snacks you can bring with you for treks like these, so Keto Bars are the perfect size to bring along.
2. Keto Bars are made with real ingredients. I can’t even tell you how gross I felt about myself when I had to consume some of those “other” bars just for the sake of sustenance on a bike ride or during a long day at the office. Ingredients are simply: dark chocolate, raw coconut, eggs, heavy cream, butter, potassium sorbate (originating from mountain ash trees) and stevia.
3. Keto Bars are … Keto! There already aren’t many low-carb bars out there and the ones that are are usually also low fat, and low in everything we need. Keto Bars have 19g fat, 7g protein, and only 2g net carbs, clearly made with love using all-natural ingredients. It’s the only ketogenic bar that’s not just low carb, but also intentionally high in fat, so you stay fueled and full.
4. Keto Bars are pretty inexpensive. I got an email the other day from a Keto Bar fan that reminded me of how much value you get out of every bar. At about $26 bucks for a pack of 10 including shipping, you’re paying about $2.60 per bar. That’s just as much or less than any of those other bars out there that also happen to be packed with artificial nastiness and taste terrible. I don’t know about you, but Keto Bars is a better investment for me.
5. Keto Bars have fans that are loyal as heck. I mean, clearly you’re seeing my love here, but you’re thinking, “ok Amanda, well they’re sponsoring your site.” But the truth is every word here is my own. I trust you can probably tell the difference between some canned promotional act and true love. Besides, look at the reviews on their site. And I can personally confirm, everyone I’ve ever talked to who has tried one, LOVES them. As you can tell, I do too.
6. Keto Bars help save time. Rather than wasting time and mess in the morning making eggs or something complicated, it’s a lot easier to just grab a Keto Bar and get out the door. And you can rest easy knowing you’ll be satiated with high fat content and protein which gives you plenty of energy to start your day.
7. Keto Bars save energy. Working out is hard enough, you don’t want to waste any more energy trying to think about what to eat to pick you back up afterwards. A Keto Bar is the perfect before or after the gym snack. Throw it in your gym bag and open one up when you get back home.
8. There are shakes too. And not your typical shakes. And they’re not for your low fat friends, either. These babies have 10 grams of fat in them and they’re served hot. Yes, hot. They come in hot chocolate, vanilla cinnamon and coffee. I’ve been sipping on them all winter, tossing in a little extra coconut oil and blending them up with some heavy cream. Perfection, if you ask me. I’m a sucker for hot chocolate. Keto Bars sells a sweet sampler pack that includes bars and shakes.
