Baklava Minus the Fat & Calories

UNiTE’s Baklava Protein Bar isn’t flaky or as sweet as traditional Baklava, but if you’re minding your fat and calories and are avoiding gluten, this nutty protein bar will put an abrupt halt to your hunger pangs with less fat and approximately 160 less calories than a serving of baklava.

Reaching for a protein bar quite often feels like a compromise because many protein bars are pretty tasteless. I was surprised that this gluten-free bar actually tasted as good as it does because the gluten-free snacks I’ve tried in the past weren’t tasty at all. A quick review of the Baklava Protein Bar’s ingredients reveals why it tastes better than other gluten-free snack bars or protein bars. The number one ingredient is delicious almond butter. Yum!
If you enjoy snacking on pistachios, walnuts, and almonds, you will very likely enjoy this low-calorie (180 calories) snack or meal substitute because it is made with all of those ingredients, along with cinnamon, nutmeg, and natural flavors. No artificial ingredients or sugars are used. While it’s not quite as rich tasting as Baklava, it is definitely a refreshing change from the usual artificial chocolate or vanilla protein bars made with sucralose, aspartame, or saccharine. Enjoy!
