@questnutrition Rocky Road Bar Review
210 cal / 9f / 20c / 20p
Decent chocolate aroma right away, visible chunks and nuts scattered throughout. The bar itself I felt to be a bit dry, and have a slight after taste to it. The white chocolate pieces were nice, but rocky road is marshmallow not white chocolate so that didn’t fit for me. Good chew overall, and enough chunks to give it some texture appeal. Slightly grainy as seems typical with most quest stuff these days. Overall I wasn’t to wowed with this bar. Another average bar for me, plus it’s another higher fat bar which turns me off.

Chocolate – 110cal / 4.5f / 17c / 12p
Good visual here. Chocolate bar that looks like one of the cereal bars you’d buy from a gas station with good amount of icing over it. Decent macros for the bars size. Not to crunchy, not to soft. Wasn’t super strong chocolate flavor honesty. I taste more of the icing than I do chocolate. The longer you chew this the more you taste protein as it gets kinda grainy or dry at the end.
Cinnamon Roll – 110cal / 4.5f / 17c / 12p
Good visual off the bar. Looks like a cereal bad with a nice bit of icing drizzled over it. Decent macros for the size of the bar. 38g which is just over half the weight of a quest bar. Very underwhelming cinnamon flavor here. Icing wasn’t as strong as the chocolate either. Decent to eat, but nothing spectacular.
@questnutrition Waffle Cereal Bar review –
110 cals / 4.5 fat / 17 carb / 12 protein
First off this has an amazing syrup smell. Yummm. Tan cereal bar with a white icing coating about 75% of the top of the bar. 38g bar so it’s just over half the weight of a typical quest bar. Very chewy bar that gives you a nice syrup with a bit of waffle or pancake flavor. It does fade out the more you chew and ends kinda bland but it isn’t terrible. Overall the flavor is a nice change but it needs to be increased a bit and increase flavors other than syrup. Definitely would of called this Bar Syrup with a hint of waffles.

3rd version Quest CCCD. 9/21/20
This one was a bit tastier than the new CNC. Good chew, good amount of chunks, I did find that the more you chewed it still did have a slight grainy feel to it, then flavor would go bland as a aftertaste. Idk if it’s just me but these new bars also stick like a mofo to the wrapper.
Sadly I’d take this over the CNC, but for the macros I’d much rather eat a @combatcrunch and have a bit of fat n get a better texture.
The ‘new’ and 3rd version of Quest CNC – 9f/21c/20p Slightly grainy, weak flavor if you don’t get a cream chunk, cookie pieces are a bit dry n chalky, good chew, a bit softer than last, warmed makes it better as usual. Overall I felt the the flavor in this bar was more of a backdrop. It definitely gave me a drier chalky feel as eating it then after I started chewing the flavor would come out more. I think this new version is a bit better than their last, but not near their original. I looked at ingredients to compare and I couldn’t find any differences. I wish the macros were still like they use to be. I think when they first came out fat was 6f.
Decided I would throw up my latest Donut Recipe for Cinnamon Donuts with Hot Chocolate Frosting
First Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, place 100g AP Flour, 20g Cinnamon Whey, 30g Truvia or granulated sugar of choice, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp salt. Mix together.
In a separate bowl melt 2tbsp(28g) lite butter. Let cool. Crack and egg in and whisk. Then add in 1 tsp vanilla and 4oz Low fat Buttermilk. Mix then add into dry ingredients. Combine everything well.
Grab you donut tray and spray well. Begin to place your batter evenly into each donut holder. This does make a good amount of batter and I have to fill all 6 holders to the brim. If you have 2 pans or 1 that can hold 12 this recipe could probably make 7 or 8 donuts.
Place batter in the middle of your oven for 8-12 min. Use toothpick to check if done. Take out and let sit for a few minutes. Then transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling.
Now lets make the frosting.
In a bowl place 1 packet Swiss miss light hot chocolate, 20g Chocolate Whey, 2g truvia, 1/2 tsp vanilla, and enough water/milk to bring it to a frosting consistency.
Proceed to dunk each donut into the frosting then using a spatula evenly spread the remaining frosting over the donuts.
I recommend storing these in the fridge once you are don’t eating them, but when serving place in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.

As its getting colder I started thinking about campfires……which leads me to food….which leads me to smores of course. Figured it has been awhile since I have don’t anything smores themed, so here we go!
Here is what you will need.

1/2 tsp baking soda
Milk to mix.
I added just a smidge of 0 cal chocolate sauce
Pre heat Oven to 350
Line and spray down baking dish
Mix everything in a bowl and pour into dish.
Bake for roughly 25-35min. I also had pizza cooking at the same time so the oven got opened multiple times throughout this cooking time.
Well that is Baking in a bowl mix:
30g Chocolate Protein
4g hot Coco mix
Milk/ 0 cal chocolate sauce to mix. Place in fridge.
Once Cake is baked, pop out and place on rack to cool.
Once cool, put it on a plate, take your frosting out and start frosting. (I usually will add a bit more liquid after pulling out of the fridge)
Once Frosted I dusted with 2g of grahm cracker crumbs and 15g of mini marshmallows. Obviously I added more after the fact but doesn’t matter for the recipe.
Macros for Entire Cake with toppings : 638 Cals / 8.8 Fat / 77.4 Carb / 67.2 protein / and a whopping 22.5g of fiber
