These Pumpkin Pie Protein Bars Taste Like Dessert With Just 1 Gram of Sugar
By Danielle Fontana , Associate Editor |
Indulging in pumpkin pie this time of year used to be synonymous with a cheat day or letting your diet slide for a minute, but a new (and limited-edition) launch from ONE Bar ($2.50) is making it possible to treat yourself to the seasonal can’t-skip dessert with zero guilt (and just one gram of sugar).
The certified gluten-free pumpkin pie bars boast a whopping 20 grams of protein, only 230 calories, one gram of sugar and nine grams of fiber—and taste EXACTLY like the real thing. They’re moist, never dry or chalky like some protein options can be, and coated in a sweet, white-chocolate-like coating for extra sweetness. Keep them at your desk (read: hide them from your coworkers) or in your pantry for a sweet treat or as a meal replacement, but either way, these are worth stocking up on before they sell out (you can find them at GNC, Vitamin Shoppe and Amazon.com).

If you’re not a pumpkin pie fan but still want a protein bar that tastes like dessert (who doesn’t?), you’re in luck. The brand’s flavor portfolio is extensive, to say the least, and includes options like peanut butter pie, maple glazed donut, salted caramel and birthday cake (there are 12 flavors total), all with the promise of one gram of sugar and at least 20 grams of protein.
Is it possible to fall in love with a protein bar? (Asking for a friend.)
