Quest Nutrition…Oh so good!

By now you have all heard of Quest Bars.  They are the most amazing protein bars you will ever try.  It is said to be the “#1 Protein Bar” available.  And I am inclined to believe so.  Not only is it simply delicious but it is packed full of very impressive nutrtional numbers.

Lets take a look at the newest badass bar for fall “Pumpkin Pie”.  As for the taste they do not disappoint.  They are a bit different then the other quest bars as they have a glazed coating.  When you bite into this delicious fall treat you will taste the chunks of graham cracker bites that are mixed in.  This bar definitely hits the spot when having a sweet craving!   There is a whooping 21 grams of protein, 12 grams of fiber and only 4 net carbs.  Not to mention less than 1 gram of sugar and gluten free. All of the Quest Bars have pretty comparable numbers.

They are also all made with minimal ingredients and the ingredients that are in them are natural.  NATURAL is very important!  Here are the ingredients in most of the bars:

Whey and milk protein isolate

Soluble Corn Fiber (Prebiotic Fiber) (100% natural)

All natural almond or peanut butter

Almond, peanuts, or cashews

Sea salt, natural flavors

Lo Han Guo (a natural herb/sweetener)

Stevia

Sucralose

 Not much else goes into these bars making them a great choice for people who are concerned with having a more natural bar. quest bars

Another reason I LOVE these bars is because there is so much you can do with them besides eat them straight from the wrapper (I personally love them that way the best).  There are so many different recipes.  Below is one of my favorites:

Creamy Quest Cups – White Chocolate Raspberry

Quest bars are on the top of the charts when it comes to protein bars. The brand itself has grown rapidly over the past couple years and they make delicious treats for everyone to enjoy. I used a White Chocolate Raspberry Quest bar for this recipe. This is so simple and only takes a couple minutes to make.
Here is what you need:

– 1 Quest Bar in White Chocolate Raspberry
– 1/2 container Dannon Greek Yogurt
– 1 tsp Walden Farms (WF) Raspberry Jelly
– 1 packet Truvia


Step 1: Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Remove your quest bar from the wrapper and roll it out.

Step 2: Cut flattened quest bar into 4 sections and place into mini muffin trays

Step 3: Place into oven for 6-8 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Remove and let cool.

Step 4:  In a bowl, mix the Greek Yogurt, Truvia, and WF Raspberry Jelly.

Step 5: Assemble the cups by placing a little of the raspberry mixture in the cups.
Top with a piece of white chocolate if you’d like & voilà!! You now have yourself a creamy quest cup 🙂
