While I do like Quest bars, and I do like bananas… I’ve never been very fond of banana flavored products. I wasn’t very excited to try the Quest banana nut muffin bar with that in mind. It didn’t sound as bad as other flavors like coconut cashew or lemon though, but not very far above that either.
Quest Banana Nut Muffin Review
No real surprises here. The Quest banana nut muffin bar basically tasted exactly like I thought it would, perhaps slightly better but overall it was about what I expected. The texture and consistency is very similar to other fruit based Quest bars, so not quite as soft compared to flavors like cookie dough, cinnamon roll, etc. but a little bit more firm in nature. The actual flavor of the bar itself is banana based, and the mix-ins consist of walnuts/almonds. Not really my ideal choice of mix-ins as I prefer something sweeter, but they were good for what they were.
The calories for the Quest banana nut muffin bar total out to 180 calories consisting of the macros 20p/22c/8f in addition to 13g fiber. Fairly average macros and calories for a Quest bar; nothing really noteworthy here.
I wouldn’t call the Quest banana nut muffin bar bad by any means; for what it was, it was pretty solid. I just don’t like banana or nut based products that much in general unless it’s coming in pure form, so of course I was bound to not enjoy this flavor as much as others. Give me a chocolate based Quest bar ANY DAY of the week over a fruity based flavor. If you really like banana nut as a flavor then you’ll probably really like this bar, but if you’re like me and prefer your protein bars to be sweeter and/or chocolatey, then definitely look elsewhere in the Quest line.
