Happy Friday friends! In today’s grab and go world, protein bars have become increasingly popular as a quick and convenient dietary option. Finding a bar that stands out from the crowd can be difficult. A few weeks ago, Breakout Bar contacted me through social media to try their line of protein bars. Today, I’m sharing my full review.
About Breakout Protein Bar…
Breakout Bar is a St. Louis based nutrition company that believes in WANTing More, DOing More and BEcoming More! As someone in the health and wellness industry, this powerful slogan resonated with me in such a positive way!
Breakout Bars are handmade with zero added sugar or preservatives. Beyond the eye-catching wrappers and super-healthy names, lies some seriously impressive, yet nice and short ingredient lists- huge selling point with me. I also loved that the main carbohydrate sources in these bars come from whole grains like puffed millet, rolled oats, amaranth and buckwheat groats.
First up to try – Oat Batter Baby!
Oat Batter Baby is very unique for the protein bar market. The texture of this bar comes from the blend of oats, amaranth, puffed millet and buckwheat groats. At only 4 grams of sugar, the sweetness of this bar comes from the honey and light cacao coating on top. This was my least favorite of the flavors. With a name like Oat Batter, I was hoping for more of an oatmeal batter/cookie-like taste with this one.

I went a bit Coco- Nutty for this flavor! No pun intended!
Coco Nutty tastes like a “healtified “Almond Joy bar. This bar has chunks of cashews, toasted coconut flakes, puffed millet and just a touch of dark chocolate on top. It’s the perfect bar to tide you over between meals and kept me full for several hours. Hands down, this was my favorite flavor!

Choco Peano was one of the first flavors Breakout Bars introduced. Look at the amount of love that went into this bar! Chunks of whole almonds and peanuts throughout the bar – I was in heaven! Nutty, soft and chewy – like a cross between a healthy crispy treat and a traditional granola bar. I loved the texture of this one!
