What are Energy Bars?
Energy bars are packed with carbohydrates which are the body’s main source of energy. They’re perfect to satisfy your cravings while supporting your muscles after through an intense training schedule, as carbohydrates help with muscle recovery.1
They’re a convenient way to make sure you’re topped up throughout the day, and can be enjoyed at home, work or on the go.
The Best Energy Bar
We offer a range of great tasting energy bars for you to choose from, including the classic Protein Flapjack which is a soft and sweet snack, packed with protein and carbs. They deliver 20g of protein per bar, along with 32g of carbs, making them a great addition to a balanced diet. Plus, they’re suitable for vegetarians.
Alternatively, we have our Oats & Whey Protein Bars which really pack a punch with 22g of protein and an impressive 38g of carbs — ideal for muscle recovery after training.1 They’re deliciously chewy, contain a blend of whey protein concentrate and milk protein, and come in amazing flavours such as Chocolate Peanut and Salted Caramel.
1. Carbohydrates contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function (contraction) after highly intensive and/or long-lasting physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and the depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle. This beneficial effect is obtained with the consumption of carbohydrates, from all sources, at a total intake of 4g per kg body weight, at doses, within the first 4 hours, and no later than 6 hours, following highly intensive and/or long-lasting physical exercise leading to muscle fatigue and the depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle.
What are the benefits of energy bars?
Energy bars are an on the go, carb rich fuel source that are great for those who may not have the time for a full meal and or prefer to have something "lighter" around training to fuel perfomance.
When should I eat an energy bar?
Depending on the type of activity, you're likely to gain most benefit from having an energy bar in the hour leading up to exercise. However some longer lasting exercise, such as endurance based activities, may require you to have one or more during.
What's the best energy bar for a workout?
The oats and whey bar is a great choice as it provides the carbs you need to fuel your exercise whilst also having the protein content packed in to help retain muscle protein and accelerate the recovery process.

If you plan on having a bar before and or during a run then you'd want something easy to eat that's not going to be too "heavy" in your stomach; our protein cereal bar or protein break bars would be great options here!
What's the best energy bar for cycling?
Having something more robust leading up to training, like our oats and whey bar or all-in-on perform bar, can be a great option to fuel performance during the cycle. Sticking to "lighter" options will allow you to keep yourself topped up with energy whilst not disrupting performance; we'd go for the protein cereal bar or protein break bar here.
