Starting the workweek in a rush, running late for that first meeting? No time for breakfast? Grabbing a protein bar seems like a quick fix, right? But not all bars are created equal. Many are high in sugar and lacking in nutrients.⁠

Regardless of your health goals, my research suggests aiming for a bar with 6 to 18 grams of protein. Healthier options include bars with nuts and fruits, ranging from 180 to 250 calories. The best ones are crafted with whole ingredients like almond butter, dark chocolate, and fruits, packing a punch in the protein department.⁠

I have designed the Urban Baker Co. protein bar line with these principles in mind. Perfect for sustaining energy, building lean muscle mass, and naturally promoting a stronger, healthier body.⁠ As I age, maintaining my health becomes crucial, especially strength. Being a Pilates lover helps, but what we eat plays a huge role in preserving muscle mass as we age.⁠

This protein line is your ally in achieving personal health goals, ensuring sustained energy, and keeping you full between meals for those snack enthusiasts.⁠ Our delectably wholesome protein products are meticulously crafted from the finest organic ingredients, ensuring an unparalleled level of quality. What's more, they're gluten and dairy-free, making them the ultimate guilt-free indulgence!⁠

Why opt for our plant-based protein bars? Here are some compelling reasons:⁠

✅ Abundant in protein⁠

✅ Bursting with "good" calories⁠

✅ Sustains energy levels⁠

✅ Offers a natural energy boost⁠

My passion for unique flavour combinations is evident in my business tagline, "Every Flavour Tells A Story." Explore the variety in this protein line—guaranteed satisfaction, and yes, they're gluten-free and dairy-free!⁠

Our standout favourite, the Dark Chocolate Coconut Almond Cranberry flavour, is a tantalizing fusion of almond butter, honey, gluten-free oats & granola, dark chocolate, coconut, almonds, cranberries, and the purest chocolate plant-based protein powder.⁠

Let's delve into the highlights:⁠

🔸 A whopping 13.2g of protein⁠

🔸 Rich in Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)⁠

🔸 Exceptionally high in Vitamin E⁠

🔸 Laden with fiber⁠

🔸 High in calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, zinc⁠

🔸 Packed with monounsaturated fatty acids⁠

Store them in a sealed container in the refrigerator, or in the freezer. Thanks to the fatty acids, they won't freeze solid and can be enjoyed straight from the freezer. (Hint: That's how I prefer them).⁠
