Vegan Chocolate PB & Banana Walnut Outright Bars

Taste

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter – The vegan outright bar has a similar texture and flavor to the regular outright bars. The rich, creamy, and dense peanut butter is the forefront flavor with mini chocolate chips melting in your mouth as you bite into the bar. At first I thought there may be a large chalkiness associated with the vegan protein used in the bar, but that is not the case. Texture and taste wise this is identical to the original Outright Bar, but a slight difference using maple syrup instead of honey. I personally enjoyed the maple syrup as the sweetness helps enhance the peanut butter and chocolate chips.

Banana Walnut Peanut Butter – The peanut butter base of the bar is exactly the same from Marc’s original Outright Bars. The creaminess and richness of the peanut butter overpowers the complimenting banana flavor. You will still taste the ripe banana that lingers on your taste buds, but it has a stronger balance of peanut butter to the banana. The walnuts add a great crunch to the bar different then what we have seen with raisins, cranberries, and mini chocolate chip pieces that are usually included. Overall I found it very hard to notice a difference with honey and maple syrup interchanged in the vegan bars

Texture
The texture of the bars feels like a soft cookie. They are a bit firm on the outside but you can puncture them with your finger. The middle is soft, chewy, and melts in your mouth. This is a bar that doesn’t need to have anything done to it as the texture is just right and is easy to chew. Even for a vegan bar these are identical to the regular outright bars even with a slight change in ingredient profile.
