Get ready to take a chomp into a protein bar like no other. No, that is not a sales gimmick line…we mean it! This bar took years to get into your hands. It came together beautifully and easily one day in our kitchen. All we wanted to do was get it to you, our Trim Healthy Mamas, but all the bar manufacturers said… “No.” This sort of bar just couldn’t work…. were we crazy? We’re not much for believing anything is impossible so we built our own healthy bar factory and now you have your bar!
With all the thousands of protein bars ever created, this one you unwrap in your hands and it stares back at you PROUD, UNIQUE and CLEAN. It is simple and sound. It is lean and mean. It has 21 grams of perfectly balanced amino acids, only 3 net carbs (mainly from the cocoa) and just a little bit of fat in the form of metabolism revving MCT oil.
Here’s the best part… it has no cheap fillers to help us make a buck. That means no sugar or high glycemic syrups or sugar, no gas forming inulin to raise profit margins, no trendy fake fibers that can mess with your blood sugar such as Isomalto-oligosaccharides or other so called pre-biotic fibers, no cheap, denatured protein powders, no dried fruit pastes to put weight on your belly, no artificial preservatives and no additional nonsense. Due to the clean ingredients and lack of preservatives, it’s best to keep your Trim Healthy bars in your fridge when storing longer than just a few days.
The Trim Healthy Bar powerfully slays the snacking monster! Its chewy, almost taffy candy like texture makes it last longer in your mouth. Ever had bar experiences that are… “2 bites… 2 seconds… empty wrapper?”
Yup, we know what that feels like… you’re still hungry! Enjoying this bar is more like a lingering past time. It is so much more than just a few moments of chocolatey pleasure… It takes its good time to finish and leaves you without urges to munch on everything else in sight.
Though it’s best to store your bars long-term in the fridge, they’ll easily stand up to a few days in your purse if you want to throw a couple in there for when you are out and about. Enjoy a whole bar for an afternoon snack or a third to half of it for dessert. They will harden up in the fridge (we love them that way and cut off little pieces for dessert after meals) but if you want them softer you need to let them sit out of the fridge for about 20 minutes.

Will There be Other Flavors soon?
You betcha. Bao Bar is coming next (baobab/apricot flavor) and it rocks. That will be followed by others.
Can the bar be a meal replacement?
Yes, these bars can either be a snack, a very light meal or a dessert. If using as a quick breakfast or on the go little meal, keep in mind these are a Fuel Pull (FP) bar meaning they have very little carbs or fats in them and are low calorie. For the health of your metabolism, you don’t want constant low calorie meals so keep juggling your fuels and your calories by also having lots of S and E meals. Don’t rely on these for most of your meals but they can be incredibly helpful for when you need them! Adding a Trimmaccino coffee or tea made with coconut oil can help round your meal out. These bars make fantastic mid morning or afternoon snacks too! As a dessert, they are wonderful straight from the fridge where they harden up. You really only need a third to half a bar for your dessert as you don’t need a high protein dessert after an already protein rich meal before hand. That would be overdoing protein and Trim Healthy Mama is a beautifully balanced protein approach. We love to cut 1/3 – 1/2 of a bar into little pieces and enjoy as a dessert… tastes like you’re eating tootsie rolls!
What is the texture like?
These bars are more chewy than cakey, they have an almost taffy like consistency. They take a good while to eat so you get more satisfaction from your snack or meal and feel fuller afterwards.
Is it ok to microwave the bars to soften them up?
Yes, but only if you follow these three Rules:
1- NEVER TELL SERENE about your personal choice to heat up our superfood bars! ha!
2 – Only nuke for 15 seconds or so… the longer you nuke, the more nutrients you will lose. 20 seconds max. Heating will soften the bar somewhat though and will make it quicker to eat. That’s fine if you don’t have the time it takes to eat the bar in it’s original form or if you prefer a softer texture. Just keep in mind we designed this bar to be the opposite of a two chomp and you’re done type of snack. It is purposefully chewy and the time it takes to eat causes a sustained feeling in your mind and belly. It fills you up more and doesn’t leave you hungry.
3 – If you’re determined to nuke – use it as now and then way of eating the bar, rather than a constant. Collagen is okay to be heated however there are certain undenatured healing proteins in the CFM whey that can be destroyed with heat. Of course, we do bake with our whey protein sometimes and even blend it into hot drinks, so the bar will still be an incredibly healthy snack but it may lose just a little of its health giving powers.
Will there be stevia free bars coming soon?
We’ll try to have a stevia free bar at some point in future, using monk fruit instead.
Will there ever be an erythritol free bar for those who can’t do any sugar alcohols?
We’re thinking about doing that. It would be more like a Yuck Yum flavor. Ever tried Serene’s Yuck Yum smoothie from our Trim Healthy Table cookbook, or Pearl’s Counterfeit Yuck Yum Bitty? It is addicting but only slightly sweet. We won’t be able to get a non erythritol bar quite as sweet as the others using only stevia or monk fruit extract. Having said that, many testers of our bar that have super sensitive tummies and have to avoid overdoing xylitol etc felt like our bar didn’t affect them negatively at all in this area….no stomach cramping or bloating!
Will there be dairy free bars in future?
We’ll try to give you that too. The only dairy currently used in this bar is the THM whey protein which many people who need to be dairy free can use. It is completely lactose free and almost 100% casein free.
Can you talk about the price?
We have tried incredibly hard to be competitive with pricing. It is important to remember our bars do not have fillers so the ingredients cost us far more than other bars. Pure, quality and yes… expensive ingredients are the big difference between the Trim Healthy bar and all others. This is why we’ve had to build our own bar factory to even get these made as all other bar factories only make bars with fillers. We don’t know of even one other low carb bar that doesn’t have fillers or what we call “fake fibers” think soluble corn fiber, Isomalto-Oligosaccharides or things like tapioca starch or syrup (same thing usually). These are questionable on blood sugar to say the least and while manufacturers claim them to be low glycemic ingredients, there is a lot of speculation in the food science world that these so called low carb fillers can lose their low GI status once they’ve been sitting in a bar for about 11 weeks. After that they may affect blood sugar much more profoundly. These fillers are dirt cheap and so are other fillers like inulin. While that is okay on blood sugar, we didn’t want to use that either as it causes major bloating for too many people. So we’re in the bar world trying hard to compete with bars that cost far less to make. For that reason, we are not yet making our needed margins the introductory price. Our plan is that selling large quantities will make up for our lack of profit on each bar.
