Honey Stinger’s new nut and seed bars boost recovery


By Henry Howard


As someone with Celiac Disease, I really appreciate Honey Stinger creating products that I can use to fuel with or for recovery from my ultra marathon training.


Honey Stinger recently launched two new recovery bars, the Almond Pumpkin Nut Seed Bar and the Peanut Sunflower Nut Seed Bar. I immediately ordered some and could not wait to try them out. I was not disappointed.


I’ve enjoyed both options as a post-workout recovery treat or simply just as a snack. I really don’t have a preference for either one. Both have a great sweet-and-salty mix that is spot on.


Here’s a look at each:


Almond Pumpkin Nut Seed Bar

The almond pumpkin bar’s rich nut butter core is covered in caramel and rolled in crunchy nuts and seeds.


It contains 14 grams of protein and is packed with nutritious antioxidants, honey and savory nut flavor for a rewarding post-workout recharge. Vitamins A, C and E help fight inflammatory responses from training.


The sweet and salty mix is a welcome combination after long runs, especially as the days are getting warmer. While I am plant-based, honey is one of the rare exceptions I made in my diet for animal products. The sweetness of the honey combined well the crunch of roasted almonds and pumpkin seeds.


The bars are non-GMO, gluten free and kosher. They do not contain any sugar alcohols, carrageenan, chicory root, or inulin.


Peanut Sunflower Nut Seed Bar

The peanut sunflower bar also has a rich nut butter core, covered in caramel and rolled in crunchy nuts and seeds. It also contains 14 grams of protein and antioxidants vitamins A, C and E that ward against inflammation.


Just like the almond pumpkin bars, these also have 14 grams of whey protein that support muscle recovery and repair.
