Energy bars have come a long way from the high-sugar, high-fat, bland-tasting products of just a few years ago. Now there are dozens of nutritious, delicious options that supply adequate fuel for active guys – without all the garbage ingredients that you can barely pronounce. We're especially into the new crop of bars that are pushing the boundaries of on-the-go nutrition, each using top-quality ingredients to deliver unique flavor combos.
Bonk Breaker Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip
The official energy bar of Ironman triathlon, Bonk Breaker just added this third flavor – peanut butter chocolate chip – to its High Protein line. This small, dense, 270-calorie bar is a protein bomb at 13 grams, so it's best devoured for quick, convenient fuel or to recover after a long ride or run. Bonk Breaker uses brown rice protein and peanuts instead of dairy-derived proteins, so it's easier on the stomach than many comparable bars.
