Taste Test: Adapt Bars and Coffee Shots

The only truly keto-friendly protein bar on the market is from Adapt Your Life, Dr. Eric Westman’s company. Low-carb (2 grams), moderate protein (5 grams), and high-fat (8 grams), these tasty little morsels give keto dieters an on-the-go option for a quick snack or the occasional dessert-like treat. The Coffee Shots are designed to be a convenient travel option for making Bulletproof-style coffee, with coconut oil, MCT oil, and butter, sweetened with just a touch of stevia.

On this episode of keto chat, Mikayla and Carole sample:

  • Cookies and Cream Adapt Bar
  • Lemon Cheesecake Adapt Bar
  • Chocolate Adapt Bar
  • Vanilla Coffee Shot
  • Hazelnut Coffee Shot
