As most of you know, I had a baby just over 5 weeks ago. Just before I gave birth, Myprotein hooked me up with some protein bars for use when I was ready to go back to training. They sent me a box of:
I’ve been doing a few gym sessions a week (if you want to see my fitness journey, then follow me on Instagram) and I’ve found these handy for saving time in the morning when I only have limited time before the baby wants feeding again – I have one instead of making breakfast before working out.
I’ve tried a lot of protein bars in my time. Before having Leo I would have them in the morning either driving to the gym first thing or driving from the gym to work – again – I use them for convenience and to save time.
I tried the protein cookie to start with. To be completely honest, I’d say it was pretty similar to other protein cookies I’ve tasted. I wasn’t blown away. As you can see form the photo, the middle wasn’t gooey like on the packet, it was just a bit darker/wetter than the rest of the cookie which was a bit disappointing. These are okay but not something I would repurchase. I’d say they are ‘as expected’.
However, the double dough brownies were AMAZING. They are so rich, sweet and soft. They remind me of the 5 layer bars that Myprotein sell – I was also a big fan of those! They do look quite small but they are thick and dense so really do fill you up. I love having one in the morning with my coffee before hitting the gym and would purchase these again! It’s so hard to find a protein bar that doesn’t taste like a protein bar and this really does tick the box. If you are a fan of chocoaltely sweet treats, then you will love these.
