Protein bars all over the world are currently being put to shame by these delicious bars of goodness fromOptimum Nutrition.
So apart from tasting great what can these do for you? Recovery is a two-part process that involves replenishing the carbohydrate-based glycogen burned as fuel during intense physical effort and re-building the muscle fibres broken down during training. Having a post workout bar or shake can aid this..
Packed with protein (23g to be exact) the Oats and Whey Flapjacks are by far my favourite, how can you even go wrong with Double Chocolate flavour??!! (you cant, by the way..) perfect for a post workout protein hit or even a guilt free afternoon snack with a lovely cup of tea – green of course! I shall forever have a few of these on standby in my cupboards. Each bar delivers a specially formulated blend of 23 g of proteins to support muscle growth and 27 g of carbohydrates, primarily from wholegrain oats.With real milk chocolate coating, these delicious bars are available in three irresistible flavours: Oats & Honey, Double Chocolate and Cherry Coconut.
