Our ZEN Bar legit tastes like a cherry chocolate jubilee in your mouth. The bar is bursting with flavor! At first bite, you'll get notes of creamy cashew butter and rich cocoa butter. Then you'll experience a sweet kick from the cherries & Montmorency tart cherry powder to get that chocolate cherry party started. Guaranteed to make your tastebuds do a happy dance!
What's the texture of a ZEN Bar like?
One of my dealbreakers when it comes to any snack is texture. Texture has to be on point! Which is why we spent months recipe testing and tasting to ensure that the texture was just right. Our ZEN Bar is light and airy, never chalky or chewy, and it never sticks to the roof of your mouth! Please note: each ZEN Bar has a perfectly proportioned handful of dark chocolate chips which pack a powerful punch, but can also be melty. If you notice your chocolate chips are a bit melty, just stick your ZEN Bar in the fridge for a few minutes.
Is the ZEN Bar vegan?
Yes! B.T.R. Bars are 100% vegan. We only source the highest quality plant protein from almonds, hemp, pumpkin seeds, and peas. All B.T.R. Bars contain at least one complete protein source meaning each bar contains all nine essential amino acids. B.T.R. Bars are in the process of being Vegan Certified as well!
A lot of protein bars are full of sugar and unneccessary sweeteners. How much sugar is in a ZEN Bar?
Great question! One of our core beliefs is that snacks can be super low in sugar and still be delicious! That's why all B.T.R. Bars have only 2-3g of total sugar per bar, 0g of added sugar. B.T.R. Bars are naturally sweetened with a little monk fruit extract. In fact, our Cherry Chocolate Chip ZEN Bar has 85% less sugar than the average protein bar. The majority of protein bars on the market are packed with sugars, sugar alcohols, stevia, and the list goes on. Some brands even have sugar in the form of brown rice syrup or honey as the first ingredient in their bar. Not us! Who needs all that sugar? You're sweet enough already!
Is your ZEN Bar keto & paleo friendly?
Absolutely! All B.T.R. Bars are keto & paleo-friendly. Each bar contains 5-7g of net carbs and 0g of added sugar. We only use the best real food ingredients that are compliant with a keto and/or paleo lifestyle.
What are adaptogens?
Adaptogens are herbs and roots that have been used for centuries in Eastern Medicine to help the body resist the stressors of the modern world. As a whole, adaptogens help the body adapt to stress. But did you know, each adaptogen does something a little different? That's why each B.T.R. Bar has a different adaptogenic blend. Our ZEN Bar is boosted with 7+ superfoods & adaptogens including reishi mushroom, tart cherries, and pumpkin seeds to help promote relaxation.
What are the benefits of reishi mushroom, tart cherry powder, and pumpkin seeds?
We love this question! Reishi mushroom has traditionally been used to promote relaxation and boost immunity. Tart cherries in particular have been shown to help the muscles recover especially after a workout or activity. And pumpkin seeds are an excellent source of magnesium which can calm the muscles in the body.

I love the chewy texture and the perfect balance of flavors. Ashley’s thought and efforts behind the B.T.R Bars really fit the needs of what many people are looking for in a go-to snack!
The flavor of this bar is on point. I love the sweetness level. The cherries are delicious and the dark chocolate chips just melt in your mouth. It's out of this world...nothing like any other bar I've ever tasted. AND it's got reishi mushroom and pumpkin seed protein. Seriously taken to the next level. I definitely feel more chill after eating 1 or 2 of these.
Normally I gravitate to the non fruit flavors of bars but this chocolate cherry bar was really good! It has chunks of chocolate and cherries and gives the bars a little more texture! Highly recommend even if you're not a huge fan of fruit flavors as a bar!
