Rowdy Bar: The First Prebiotic Energy Bar

Rowdy Bars are a deliciously healthy option for ultrarunners, kid athletes, busy moms, and everything in between. This tasty energy bar promotes good gut health while providing your body with essential protein and prebiotic fibers.

I received samples from Rowdy Bar at no charge. I was not additionally compensated for this review and all opinions are my own.

What Are Rowdy Bars?

Rowdy Bars were created to help promote a healthy gut and a positive outlook on life. The bars are loaded with fiber, protein, and healthy fats and will not spike blood sugar. The secret ingredient is yacon root, which is a root vegetable, that is made of mostly insoluble fibers. These are sugars that the body does not digest, which gives this vegetable its health benefits. Yacon has anti-hyperglycemic effects which means that the body will not absorb it, therefore not spoking our blood glucose levels, which is very helpful for those of us living with diabetes. It also helps prevent the build-up of bad cholesterol, lowers blood pressure, and boosts liver health, along with other health benefits.

All of the bars are non-GMO and gluten-free. They are also dairy-free and soy-free. Each bar is under 200 calories, and range in carbs from 15-23 grams, but you must take into account the fiber, which will make the net carbs much less. There is minimal fat and each one packs 8-14 grams of protein, depending on the flavor bar you choose.

Who Are They?

Kellie, as an ultrarunner and outdoor enthusiast, was always mindful of what she ate. In 2013 she started a clean eating journey, but at the same time started experiencing bad stomach pain, which led to gallstones. After getting her gallbladder removed and being diagnosed with hypothyroidism, she believes the root of these issues began with her digestive health. She continued on her clean eating journey, educated herself further and Rowdy Bar came to life.

How Do They Taste?

I was pleasantly surprised by the taste of all of the Rowdy Bars I received. This bar is more of a chewy consistency but also packs in some crunch. My favorite was the Chocolaty Cookie Dough. It had chunks of rich chocolate in each bite. It did not taste like a low-sugar substitute, it tasted rich and delicious. I also loved the Peanutty Dark Chocolate where the peanut butter tasted like the real thing. The Blueberry Almond Tart is a delicious choice in the morning to pair with a cup of coffee on the go. The Sunflower Butter and Berries is another one I love to start my day with, this flavor is a great combination! While I am not a fan of coconut, the Chocolate Coconut Cashew was well-liked by a friend at the gym and gave her the energy she needed to push through our workout.
