If you’re like most of us here at Perfect Bar, you might not need convincing that peanut butter protein bars are pretty perfect. They’re a better-for-you snack solution for busy bees with grumbling stomachs and health-conscious eating habits who just want something that tastes real and really good at the same time.
But you might not be familiar with the practical benefits of peanut butter and the other organic ingredients we use — or how much care and attention we put into crafting wholesome peanut butter snacks that you, your family, and your taste buds can trust.
To discover what sets Perfect Bar apart, check out these top 10 reasons to love our peanut butter protein bars:
Our bodies need protein — one of the three macronutrients alongside fat and carbs — to function properly. Like all forms of plant and animal protein, peanut butter protein is composed of amino acids, the body’s building blocks. It contributes to muscle growth, tissue repair, and bone density. Plus, protein is a real team player that gives neurotransmitters in our brains a helping hand and supports the circulation of micronutrients throughout the body. If you’re highly active, protein can also kick in as backup fuel so you can push through that final stretch of your hike or spin class.
If we have to consume a certain amount of protein every day to stay well, we might as well do it via our favorite nut butter!
2. Whole Food Nutrition
Heavily processed protein bars lose some of their nutrients before they make it into your system. Customers love that Perfect Bar contains freshly ground, organic peanut butter to help maintain the highest nutritional value in each bite.
According to the Food and Drug Administration, unsalted peanut butter offers beneficial levels of minerals including potassium, magnesium, and calcium along with vitamins E, B3, and B6. In addition to these micronutrients, it also offers antioxidants to help fight free radical damage.
Peanut butter also has a high ratio of beneficial omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids. These are nutritious unsaturated fats that help keep you full, support brain functioning, promote healthy cholesterol levels, and contribute to the health of skin, hair, and bones. Who knew fat could do all that!
3. Organic Ingredients
As if that wasn’t enough, we also boost our favorite nut butter’s nutritional value with a sneaky superfood blend of nearly two dozen organic, whole food ingredients. A quick glimpse at our ingredient list would tell you that these include egg, kale, flaxseed, rosehip, orange, lemon, papaya, tomato, apple, alfalfa, celery, kelp, dulse, carrot, and spinach. (Whew!) And, for good measure, we also blend in organic plant-based oils like olive, flax, pumpkin, sunflower, and sesame seed oils.
But here’s the thing: Your body benefits from the extra macro- and micronutrients, but your taste buds won’t even know these ingredients are there! You’ll be too busy savoring that iconic peanut butter flavor and our signature cookie-dough crumble texture.
We would be remiss if we didn’t mention one of our other favorite organic ingredients you’ll find in a Perfect Bar: organic honey. The peanut butter honey pairing not only provides a wholesome hint of sweetness. Honey’s natural preservative properties also help keep our peanut butter protein bars fresh, so we don’t need to use any mysterious, synthetic additives.
Honey also offers a variety of health benefits. It actively works against oxidative stress, harmful bacteria, sore throats, and disease. Plus, it’s known to help maintain steady blood sugar levels and improve both digestive and oral health.
5. Breakfast Readiness
When you get up in the morning, it’s important to start your day off right. An important part of that is enjoying a balanced and nutritious breakfast. As we’ve already seen, Perfect Bar ticks a lot of boxes in that category, but so do a lot of other breakfast recipes that you might not have time to prepare once your day gets going. In some of our favorite customer reviews, we’ve heard that Perfect Bar makes for a satisfying and speedy breakfast along with a cup of joe or a banana.
Additionally, our collection of peanut butter protein bars features all the flavors you might find in the bakery section, but they won’t leave you feeling sluggish after an hour or so. So, you can confidently swap out your favorite berry scone for a Crispy Peanut Butter & Berry Layers Bar or get your early morning chocolate fix with our indulgent Chocolate Mint without totally messing up your morning.
6. Fridge-Fresh Quality
There’s a lot to love about foods located along the fresh perimeter at your local grocery store. They’re often minimally processed and they just taste fresher. That’s why our peanut butter protein bars can be found by other better-for-you items on your shopping list, like green smoothies and low-fat Greek yogurt. At home, we recommend storing Perfect Bar in the fridge — or freezer if you’re looking for a super-chill snack.
7. On-the-Go Snackability
Don’t let that last point trick you into thinking Perfect Bar doesn’t have a good shelf life outside of the fridge. In fact, they’re a super portable snack food. Whether you enjoy peanut butter protein bars for breakfast, an afternoon pick-me-up, or a meal replacement, you’re all set to store and enjoy Perfect Bar for up to seven days at room temperature. (But, with all the other lovable reasons we’re talking about, you probably won’t wait that long!)
8. Family-Friendly Options
Perfect Bar is popular in a lot of households, but we know that everyone has different tastes and nutritional needs. That’s why we’ve created a range of perfect products for the whole family to enjoy.
Little ones can munch on our Snack Size bars, created with all the yumminess and benefits of our full-sized items. Craving something crispy but still want that rich nut-butter flavor? Well, Perfect Bar Layers has you covered! And anyone looking for a better-for-you dessert can enjoy our organic Refrigerated Peanut Butter Cups, featuring Fair Trade chocolate and organic peanut butter.
9. Delectable Flavor Combos
We’ve hinted at this already, but our peanut butter protein bars just taste really, really good. You can enjoy organic peanut butter with chocolate chips in our best-selling Dark Chocolate Chip Perfect Bar, or try Coconut Peanut Butter for a tropical twist.
Although we’ve been making Perfect Bar with peanut butter since the beginning, we love the wider variety of nut butter flavors we’ve added over the years, like Almond Butter and Chocolate Hazelnut Crisp.
10. Easily Restocked in the Fridge
When there’s so much to love about our Perfect Bars, it can be tough to keep them in stock in your fridge. We get it, so we make ordering online a breeze. Just fill up your cart from the comfort of home and we’ll deliver your favorite flavors right to your doorstep!
