OU81 Bar Review!

Ready for another bar review? 😉

The great people over at OU81 sent over 3 bars for Modern Girl Nutrition to review! Based out of Las Vegas, OU81 was formerly known as Nosh Bar until a recent name change. Here’s some bar background from their site:

The OU81 bar is a primal all-natural, gluten-free, grain-free nutritional bar composed primarily with the following ingredients; pumpkin seeds, almonds, dates, dried fruit, organic virgin coconut oil, grass fed whey protein powder, raw honey, pure vanilla extract and sea salt.

Sounds great to me! I couldn’t wait to review the bars because, due to their small size, I thought they would be healthy and easy running/school fuel.  I was also curious to see how much staying power they had! They sent over their 3 flavors, Coconut Cranberry, Chocolate Cherry, and Chocolate Coffee.

The cherry lover that I am, the Chocolate Cherry was the first to go! What these bars lack in size they certainly make up in decadence! This one was very rich and tasted exactly like a Maraschino cherry.

For a to-scale look, they are about the size of the palm of my hand, which is pretty small for a snack but great when you need something fast and easy.

The next one I broke into was the Coconut Cranberry, which had big pieces of cranberry all throughout it- yum! I liked this one almost as much as the Chocolate Cherry.

Last but not least, I split the Chocolate Coffee with my coffee-loving sister 😉 I paired it with apple slices and yogurt+cocoa powder for quite the fancy dessert! If you like coffee, you’ll love this bar! It had a really really strong coffee taste which went well with the chocolate. My sister was a big fan as well.

I also paired the bars with lunches…

…and cut them up to add to my homemade trail mix. This was by far my favorite use! They are way better (and healthier!) than M&Ms 🙂

As far as nutrition goes, these are the real deal. Healthy fats make up the base, and grass-fed whey protein powder gives the bars a nice boost. The bar has 3.5 g saturated fat mainly from the coconut oil, and 10 g sugar.

I would definitely buy these bars as running or hiking snacks! For an average day bar they are a little small for me, but they definitely make up for it in taste and staying power 🙂

Let me know if you have tried these bars and what you think of them!

Have a great day!

  21. such a great idea to cut up the bars and mix into trail mix!!

  22. YUM they look like little desserts haha

  23. They look so delicious but the smallness of them does not appeal to me. I really like a bar that looks like its jam packed vs. a bar that looks like a bug thats almost 200 calories. The ingredients look fantastic though! Love + Shine CourtStar
