Papa Steve's Protein Bar Review

Papa Steve's Protein Bars

You gotta love a product that says “Refrigeration Necessary”. Why? Because it means that the product is as natural as it gets. Anything that can sit in your kitchen pantry for longer than a week has got something in there that allows it to do so. More than likely, it would not be a natural ingredient.

But these bars by Papa Steve? Well, they need to be refrigerated.

Papa Steve was kind enough to send me a few samples to review. I received 2 Chocolate Coconut Crunch bars, a Banana Nut Crunch bar, and a dairy free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip bar.

The first thing I noticed as I took a bite of the Chocolate Coconut Crunch bar was the overwhelming LACK of sugar. And that is JUST what I like! Who wants a sticky sweet protein bar? I’m so over that. I also noticed Chia. I love chia and any bar that has incorporated it successfully, in my humble opinion, has got a winner!

The ingredients in this particular bar are as follows: Raw Organic Coconut, Organic Dates, Pea Protein, Raw Hemp Seeds, 100% Organic Certified Raw Cacao, Raw Pumpkin Seeds, Tapioca Fiber, Chia Seeds, Organic Vanilla Extract.

Chia, chocolate, coconut and naturally sweetened with dates. Not to mention the amazing protein provided by the Pea Protein and the Hemp Seeds.

Nutrition Stats:
Gluten, Grain, Soy, Wheat Free. Taste Freaking Amazing.
280 Calories = 15g Fat + 31g Carbohydrates + 16g Vegan Protein + 18g Fiber + 9g Sugar   (net carbs = 15)

This is a little bar (2.5 oz) that packs an amazing punch! So it is small enough to carry on a run or a bike ride, or take along in a purse or back pocket. They are handmade fresh in Southern California, and shipped fresh, at which time when it is received, to be refrigerated.

I seriously love everything about them and am excited to try a few of the other flavors. Here is what Papa Steve offers:
