Quest bars

Recently I posted a picture of my quest bar on IG and I got a few questions about, so I thought to share here as well.

Although I tend to stay away from these kinds of products, quest bars have been the exception. They have a decent list of ingredients making them my number one choice. Why have them?? I use them when I’m on the go and food may not be accessible. I never leave the house without one in my purse or bag. Hey, better than skipping a meal and ending up with junk food instead.

The other reason is this helps me when I’m craving something sweet and don’t want to have an actual cheat or treat. I have a quest bar instead. And after discovering the wonders of cooking these little bars, I’m hooked!

Downfall, well they have a lot of fiber. I’ve known some people who can not tolerate them, giving serious stomach cramps. I try not to have more than two a week at most and not every week either.

What to do? I bake them at 350 for 5 minutes and then broil for 1 minute. The outside gets crispy while the inside of the bar melts and becomes moist.

There are many flavors but my favorite are cookies and cream (the best), apple pie, cinnamon bun and cookie dough.
