AMRAP Nutrition Bars Review & Giveaway!

Thursday, September 4, 2014

**Disclaimer - This post is a review for AMRAP Nutrition Bars. I was given the opportuntity to review this product by being a Sweat Pink Ambassador and was provided with a variety of flavors of AMRAP Nutrition Bars to try for this purpose. I received no other compensations for this review and as always, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% my honest, unbiased opinion.**

Hello, all! I was lucky enough to get to try out a new brand of nutrition bars during the past few weeks. As I've said before, I'm not a person that depends on bars or shakes but I definitely love being able to grab a quick snack between classes or prior to a workout. Med life is busy and as much as I try to plan ahead with meal planning, it's always good to have a Plan B - especially when I'm working hard during September 30 for 30!

I'm pretty picky when it comes to bars - they are expensive and a typically full of undesirable ingredients and loaded with sugar and cheap ingredients.  I want to know that I'm spending my money on nutrient-dense, quality foods - even for on-the-go snacks. 

These bars are great for most dietary restrictions or meal plan - whether you're an avid Crossfitter/Paleo or not. Either way, these were an excellent source of fuel for workouts, plus a great recovery too because of the macro ratios!

The Bars



Raw Almond Butter, Unsweetened Coconut, Egg-White Protein Powder, Raw Sesame Seeds, Raw Almond Chunks, Raw Honey, Ground Cinnamon, Sea Salt.

  • My favorite flavor! It tastes like a snickerdoodle cookie - especially after you warm it up in the microwave for 10 seconds or so. The texture has a little crunch to it yet it's soft and chewy. 



Cashews, Honey, Cashew Butter, Unsweetened Coconut, Egg-White Protein, Vanilla Extract, Sea Salt.

  • My second favorite - it has a light vanilla flavor with a creamy texture from the cashew. I love how soft and chewy these bars are! I split mine in half and enjoyed it topped with a few strawberries. The other half I had the next day with an apple. 



Dates, Egg-White Protein, Figs, Almond Butter, Almonds, Unsweetened Coconut, Cacao Nibs, Coconut Oil.

  • Not a huge chocolate fan in general but this was just as delicious as the others. Very much like a Larabar and lower in fat than the other options(for those who are counting macros). I think this could easily serve as a dessert topped with some raspberries!
By now you've looked at the nutrition information and are probably saying "OMG - too much fat!" No. No. No. Low-fat diets are so 90s -- if you see the words "low-fat" think, "loaded with sugar or other junk."

Fat is GOOD, that is, good fats are good - those found in avocados, nuts, seeds, natural oils. A higher fat content will keep you satiated longer while satisfying your nutritional needs. A new study published in the Annuls of Internal Medicine has further supported a diet higher in fat and lower in carbs (particularly the processed, nutrient depleted kind found in cookies, cakes, conventional meal replacements, etc.). Combined with a balanced diet featuring TONS of veggies, some fruit, & lean meats/proteins, AMRAP nutrition bars would be a great supplemental option.

I love these bars because they are GMO-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, preservative-free, & clear of artificial sweeteners. For you Paleo followers, they are 100% Paleo-approved, too!
