Ever since Quest nutrition revealed their secret to making Questbars, homemade protein bars are fast becoming popular. They are just so easy to make and a lot cheaper than buying them. A quest bar sells for around £2.50, it’s literally daylight robbery and they aren’t the nicest protein bars out there, there are far better. I honestly don’t know what all the fuss is about and after buying and trying the new pumpkin pie flavour, I’m even more sold on making my own ‘Questbars’.
The main ingredient when making your own protein bars, is Vitafibre. Vitafibre is a natural prebiotic which is high in fibre and low in sugar, and it comes in the form of either a syrup, or powder. I was lucky enough to be sent Vitafibre syrup a few months ago by Cardiff Sports Nutrition and when I run out, I’ll be running straight to them to buy some more. Not only can you make protein bars with Vitafibre, but you can also make cookies and cakes, you can use it in coffee or on porridge; it’s very versatile and very high in fibre, so perfect if you are the type who struggles with eating enough fibre.
