Clif Bar Banana Nut Bread Bar Review

Clif Bar Banana Nut BreadAs I was adding to my stash of nutrition bars, I purchased a few Clif Bars to try out. One variety was the Clif Maple Nut Bar (delicious), and another was the Clif Bar Banana Nut Bread Bar.

Clif describes this as, "what happens when bananas, chocolate chips, and crunchy walnuts get friendly." My description would be a totally delicious nutty, chewy, banana-y delight. Although this doesn't taste exactly like banana bread - it's a little too sweet for that - it is still is a delicious, tasty interpretation.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 bar (68 grams)
Calories: 240
Total Fat: 6 grams, 9%
Saturated Fat: 1 grams, 5%
Sodium: 120 mg, 5%
Carbohydrates: 42 grams
Fiber: 4 grams, 16%
Sugars: 22 grams
Protein: 9 grams

Each 68 gram Clif Bar Banana Nut Bread Bar provides 240 calories, 6 grams of total fat, 1 gram of which is saturated, 5% of the daily value for sodium (120 mg), 4 grams of fiber (16% of the DV), 22 grams of sugar, and 9 grams of protein, as well as a slew of vitamins and minerals (~10-35% for most).

The ingredients list, although slightly lengthy, is all natural and 70% organic, like all other Clif bars. It starts with organic brown rice syrup - which accounts for the sweet taste and amount of sugar in this bar.

I picked up a bar for $1.89 at a local health foods store. Is this a spot-on swap for banana nut bread? Not quite. Is it delicious enough to be dessert? Yes! The Clif Maple Nut Bar is just as tasty and has the same number of calories, but there is 1 gram more fiber and protein, as well as 2 grams less sugar, so I would probably buy that variety more often than this one.

But since the calorie count in Clif bars is a tad high, I reserve these bars for days when there is some intense working out going on.
