My love of bars coupled with their cute name and logo made No Udder Protein Bars a must try. These energizing bars beckon to the olden days of Power Bars, but with a much cleaner ingredient list.
Tasting Notes for No Udder Protein Bars
No Udder Protein Bars are smooth, with just a smattering of nut bits throughout. And the texture is soft and chewy, but not too sticky. They’re thin, wide, and pliable making them easier to nibble on than thicker bars. And the ingredients are basically Larabar meets No Udder Protein Powder.
The Chocolate flavor was mellow and not too sweet, with an earthy cocoa vibe.
Ingredients – Dates, Raw Cashews, Raw Almonds, No Udder Pea Protein, Cocoa Powder, Sea Salt. Contains: Tree Nuts (almonds & cashews). Made in a facility that also processes nuts, wheat, eggs, soy & milk.
The Apple Pie flavor was more my style. It was just sweet enough with a pleasant apple backdrop and a delightfully warm spice.
Ingredients – Dates, Raw Cashews, No Udder Pea Protein, Freeze Dried Apples, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Sea Salt. Contains: Tree Nuts (cashews). Made in a facility that also processes nuts, wheat, eggs, soy & milk.
Each bar contains about 210 caolories, 9 to 15 grams fat, 490-550 milligrams sodium, 3 to 4 grams fiber, 16 to 19 grams sugars (but 0 grams added sugars!), and 10 grams protein. They also boast about 20% of the RDA for iron and 8% of the RDA for potassium.
Because of the gentle flavor, higher sodium, no added sugars, and slightly higher price tag, No Udder Protein Bars are a special option that I’m reserving for hikes and other endurance activities where I need more electrolytes and a good sustainable nutrient balance. If you’re highly active, these dairy-free bars might be worth a daily splurge!
