Keto Snack Atkins Low-Carb Meal Bars

The Atkins Diet is also a low carb diet, that has helped people shed unwanted body weight, and continues to help and innovate the low-carb community.   Incase you were ever wondering, YES I use it as a keto friendly super weapon.

Atkins products are marketed and made for low carb and keto dieters, but do they live up to the hype?  I think so. Here’s what I have come to find out while incorporating some Atkins products into my Keto Diet Lifestyle.

Atkins Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar is delicious, gives a good quick energy boost, and satisfies certain sweet tooth fixes. They are good in a pinch when you are on the go or stuck at the office.

 But are they
Keto Friendly?

You can’t always trust the package that says low carb or keto friendly.  Take a peek at the nutritional values.

YES, THESE ARE KETO FRIENDLY

TOTAL CARBOHYDRATES = 23g

Minus Dietary Fiber 12g
Minus Glycerin 8g

TOTAL NET CARBS = 3g per bar

Made with simple quality ingredients without refined sugar artificial flavors, color or preservatives. Lets me enjoy the delicious taste of sweet chocolate with creamy peanut butter. This bar will satisfy your hunger and chocolate cravings.

Replace a meal with the bar or cut it in half and enjoy a sweet keto snack treat.

I have read mixed reviews about whether this is keto friendly or not. After doing my own research I found out that YES, they are keto friendly and they DID NOT kick me out of ketosis. (individual results may vary, do your keto test strips)

Atkins bars are low net carb bars that use a combination of artificial sweeteners to mimic the taste of sugar with minimal glycemic impact … so keto friendly yes.

But Watch Out!  Some Atkins products use maltitol, which is an artificial sugar that isn’t great for keto and should be avoided since it has a high glycemic impact.

Not all Atkins Protein Meal Bars are keto approved (well by me anyway). Below are the ones that I have tried and I approve. The two I don’t are the Cookies and Creme, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bar. The reason is they contain the sweetener Maltitol.
