AMRAP Bar Review and Giveaway

Well I’ve certainly been MIA on the interwebs over the past week or so! I have to say, I’m not even a little bit sorry; I got to spend so much time with my family and friends, the wedding weekend was an absolute whirlwind of crazy [in all of the best ways!] and I even had snuck some time in there to relax too. It was just what we needed but we’re back in California now and back to the daily grind. Such is life.

Anywho, when I travel, I’m notorious for packing snacks. I have a “small” snack bag [weighing in at 5 lbs wouldn’t be out of the norm..] that I take in my carry-on and the rest of the snacks go in my checked bag. I don’t know about you, but I can’t stand being hungry and with these 6 hour flights to and from Baltimore that we’ve done a couple of times recently, I need to have food with me! Enter in my bar collection.

When I’m looking for snack bars, I tend to try to find bars with a good amount of protein; I know that’s what I need to tide me over. When I was offered the opportunity to try these new AMRAP bars, I jumped and of course packed them with me on my trip. If the flavors didn’t grab my attention, the description definitely intrigued me.

“The 100% Paleo, Non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, preservative and artificial anything-free, high fat to carb ratio, high protein bar designed by experts, athletes, enthusiasts, discerning moms and health nuts.”

AMRAP Bar

Onto the stats! These bars really pack a punch. At 320 calories, 21g fat, 22 – 24g carbs, and 12 – 15g protein for the Almond Honey and Cashew Vanilla, they’re a great meal replacement when you’re on the go. The Fig Cacao [my fave] comes in a little lower in the calories and fat but was still a great option when I needed a quick post-workout bite running out the door.

And the taste? The ingredient lists are so short and simple, there’s no way they could be bad. As I mentioned, the Fig Cacao was my favorite but all of the bars were delicious. The flavors are all really clean and light; you can almost name the ingredients bite by bite. The creaminess of the Cashew Vanilla bar leaves no doubt that it’s chock full of cashews!

Giveaway Prize Update!!

National Peanut Butter Day {Giveaway!}

Today might just be my most favorite day of the year; National Peanut Butter Day. There’s nothing I love more than opening a fresh jar of peanut butter and, of course, grabbing a spoon for that very first bite. Ok, maybe first few bites.. thanks, Mom 😉

There actually was a time that I sent my mom this picture. She totally understood and I’m sure her response was something along the lines of “mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!” So you see, peanut butter has always had a special place in my heart. And not only is it delicious, it’s also quite good for you!

In honor of National Peanut Butter Day, I have not only compiled a list of peanut butter delicious recipes from my blog for your quick browsing pleasure, but I also have a very special giveaway! First things first.

Peanut Butter Recipes

And don’t forget to top all of your oatmeal with a deliciously large scoop of peanut butter for maximum dining pleasure! You know I added a little extra to my breakfast this morning.. it’s only right.

*These recipes use peanut flour, but that can be substituted with peanut butter.

And now for the giveaway! Peanut Butter & Co. was kind enough to send me a few samples to review [practically a dream come true!] and offer one lucky reader the chance to win 3 jars! It was a tough choice, but in the end, I went for White Chocolate Wonderful, Mighty Maple, and Old Fashioned Smooth. These proved to be fantastic choices!

Peanut Butter Co White Chocolate Wonderful Mighty Maple Old Fashioned Smooth

I started out trying the White Chocolate Wonderful, which happens to be very appropriately named; it was absolutely wonderful! Next I tried the Mighty Maple, and while I didn’t think it would be able to get better than the White Chocolate Wonderful, it did! Holy moly, this one is so good! Finally, the Old Fashioned Smooth; full of peanuty flavor as the only two ingredients are peanuts and salt. I love that! And now I’m offering one of you the chance to try all of these fantastic flavors!
