Quest Peanut Butter Protein Powder

2015/02/img_8228.jpg

I am so impressed by Quest recently, and everything that they are creating. This powder is amazing. I always try to avoid artificial sweeteners and look for products with only all natural ingredients. Well, Quest did just that. Their new line of powders has no sugar added (less than 1g of sugar per serving, are gluten free, and they bake well! The peanut butter protein has a fantastic, vibrant flavor that your tastes buds will love (especially if you are a peanut butter lover like me). The first time using the powder, I used it in my “Fluffy Protein Pancake” recipe and it worked very well. The flavor of the powder added a great taste to the pancakes; I even enjoyed eating the pancakes plain. The powder has a really smooth texture and is all around a great product. The macros are amazing, with 110 calories, 1g of fat, 2 g carbs, and 23 g protein. I most definitely recommend this product!

Quest Nutrition BBQ Protein Chips:
Quest has managed to impress me once again. The flavor of the chips is so desirable and delicious. The flavor is spot on to original Barbecue Chips. The chips satisfy a craving for something crunchy with their light and crunchy texture. The macros for the chips are out of this world (120 Calories, 2 g Fat, 5 g Carb, 21 g Protein). Like, what?! 21 grams of protein for chips! And only 5g of Carbs. Quest makes miracles. 20140808-072942-26982483.jpg

The macros for the chips are out of this world (120 Calories, 2 g Fat, 5 g Carb, 21 g Protein).20140808-073016-27016349.jpg
Quest Nutrition Sea Salt Protein Chips:
The flavor of these chips is alright, but a bit bland. I feel like they need a little kick of flavor, instead of being so simple and not so flavorful. The texture of the chips is very smooth, airy, and crunchy. The texture of the chips does satisfy a craving for something salty and crunchy. The macros for these chips is amazing (120 Calories, 1.5 g Fat, 5 g Carb, 21 g Protein).

Cookies and Cream Quest Protein Bar Review

20140512-175631.jpg
Cookies and Cream Quest Protein Bar:
This bar is very impressive. It actually tastes like a cookies and cream dessert bar. The bar has a fantastic texture, taste, and great macros! The bar has a base that has a sweet taste that is similar to vanilla icecream. The base is infused with crushed “Oreo” chocolate cookies, with adds a texture. In addition to the crushed cookies, the bar is finished off with delicious white chocolate chunks. The bar has such an impeccable taste, that it’s unbelievable how good the macros are (180 calories, 7 g fat, 22 g carb, 21 g protein). This bar makes a delicious (clean) dessert, or a quick ( as well as delicious and filling) snack on the go.

Quest Protein Bar Reviews: Part 1

20140106-144815.jpg
Lemon Cream Pie:
The lemon Cream Pie has a zesty and sweet/tangy taste. It’s best when microwaved for 10-12 seconds on high.

20140106-144942.jpg
Strawberry Cheesecake:
The Strawberry Cheesecake has a delicious taste combination of sweet strawberries with a cheesy hint to give it the perfect imitation of a slice of cheesecake topped with fresh strawberries! The best way to eat this bar is to microwave it for 10-12 seconds or to simply eat it as is (not cooked).

20140106-145124.jpg
Banana Nut Muffin:
The Banana Nut Muffin bar has a delicious combination of the taste of sweet bananas and a hint of nuttiness. It is one of the more firm bars so it is best microwaved for 10-12 seconds (gives it the texture close to a muffin) or to bake in the oven on 400 degrees f for 3-4 mins (gives it the texture of a cookie).

20140106-145234.jpg
Cinnamon Roll:
The Cinnamon Roll bar has mastered the taste of a sweet cinnamon roll straight out of the oven! This flavor happens to be one of my favorites because it has so successfully mastered the taste of a cinnamon roll/bun. I often find myself eating these as is (not cooked) because they are already tender (as long as they are kept in a room temperature environment). Yet, these bars are so amazing plain, they are Devine when they are baked in the oven at 400 degrees f for 3-4 mins or microwaved for 10-12 seconds.

20140106-145355.jpg
Chocolate Peanut Butter:
The Chocolate Peanut Butter bar is very delicious and tastes close to a peanut butter brownie when baked in the oven for 3-4 mins at 400 degrees f, or microwaved for 10-12 seconds!!

20140106-145522.jpg
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

The Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is most definitely one of my ultimate favorites! It tastes so dead on to an ooey goey chocolate chip cookie when it is baked in the oven for 3-4 mins at 400 degrees f. When baked, it even has the texture of a cookie(crusty outside and soft inside). It is also amazing when microwaved for 10-12 seconds, or eaten as is(without cooking). The real chocolate chunks inside the bar are what makes it so incredibly perfect and makes it the best protein bar I have ever had.

20140106-145747.jpg
Double Chocolate Chunk:
Like the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough bar, the Double Chocolate Chunk has real chocolate chunks in the bar and that makes the bar so perfect! This bar tastes like a Chocolate Cookie with Melted Chocolate Chunks when baked for 3-4 mins at 400 degrees f or microwaved for 10-12 seconds! I also love to eat this bar as is.

20140106-145904.jpg
Coconut Cashew:
The Coconut Cashew bar is so perfect for all those coconut and nut lover out there! It’s so soft and delicious. This bar is best microwaved for 10-12 seconds or eaten as is.
