There is no denying that these bars are scrumptious. The tasty blend of oats, brown rice crisps, nuts, seeds, fruits and natural sweeteners is addictive and filling, yet a little high in sugars for regular indulgence. That said, these behemoth vegan meal replacement bars are ideal for splitting on a hike, or packing along for delicious all-day energy.

True to name, ProBar Meal Bars are behemoth. The thick squares have a chewy granola bar feel, are bound with nut butters and fruit, and clock in at 360 to 380 calories.

ProBar Meal Bars - Grain, Nut and Seed Dairy-Free Meal Replacement Bars

But the best part, in my opinion, is that ProBar Meal Bars are all about whole food nutrients. They contain around 8 to 10 grams of protein, 16 to 18 grams of fat, and 4 to 6 grams of fiber, all naturally occurring. There is no added protein powder, inulin or other supplement powder in these hefty dairy-free and vegan snacks.

That said, these deliciously sweet bars are a bit high in sugars, around 19 to 23 grams. So though they are packed with oats, nuts, seeds, and crisp brown rice, I would consider ProBar Meal Bars to be an occasional treat for midday energy or sharing on a hike, but not a daily or breakfast go-to.

Thus far, we’ve sampled the following flavors of ProBar Meal Bars:

Almond Crunch ProBar Meal Bars

Bursting with a strong, sweet honey-like scent, the Almond Crunch had a surprisingly gentle flavor that was indeed sweet, but not overpowering. Oats and nut butter provide a savory, warm and earthy base to contrast the date and tapioca syrup ingredients. Each bite has at least one big chunk of almonds or cashews, and light smattering of seeds.

Strawberry Bliss ProBar Meal Bars

Yum! Definitely on the sweeter side, but it’s hard for me to deny how delicious this flavor is. Big dried blueberries and almonds bring something additional to the party, but it is the infused strawberry and dairy-free white chocolate flavors that really wow. Like other ProBar Meal Bars, the Strawberry Bliss has the same oat-nut-seed goodness, but rather than dates, it is sweetened mostly with brown rice syrup and apple juice concentrate.
