Getting enough protein is vital if you want the maximum benefit from your training, and that’s where a concentrated source like this Recovery Bar comes in handy. Each 45g bar contains a useful 14g of protein – mostly milk protein – along with 17.1g of carbs and 5.2g of fat. You also get a decent amount of antioxidants to support the recovery process.
With a dark chocolate outer layer and a smooth and soft chocolaty centre, it goes down an absolute treat – this is a really good bar. You could quite easily munch through one just for the taste. And it staves off hunger well when you get in after a long ride, until you’ve had time to sort yourself out, have a shower and get a meal together.
The usual price is £42 for a pack of 25, which works out at £1.68 per bar. That’s pretty expensive but at the moment you can get a pack for £37.80 – £1.51 per bar.
Scrummy bar that packs a protein punch to boost your recovery
