Plant-based protein bars seem to be the way to go. I’ve added this to the delicious vegan list of bars worth eating! What a splendid surprise! ONE hasn’t always been my favourite protein bar brand to choose from, what am I kidding, I’ve hated them all to date! However, this ONE PLANT Chocolate Peanut Butter protein bar has ticked so many boxes that I feel both shocked and satisfied! I’m as surprised as you are!

Rich, aromatic peanuts are definitely the overriding smell of this protein bar, not that I’m complaining! I don’t get too much of chocolate smell if any, but there aren’t any bitter or weird aromas coming off this bar. It’s doing well so far! This ONE PLANT Chocolate Peanut Butter protein bar may be pretty tough on the outside, but it’s a joy to eat on the inside, moulding to your mouth as you take each bite! It may be easy to bite into and have a chewy inner texture, but I like that about a protein bar! 

Thick, crunchy peanuts generously thrown into each bite. I’m not sure I can taste the chocolate though?


The main reason I haven’t enjoyed any of the ONE protein bars I’ve consumed in the past is their ability to make them taste false and oversweet. This ONE PLANT bar, however, contradicts this completely, much to my satisfaction! Not a single artificial or bitter taste or aftertaste was found in my mouth at any point while consuming this bar! I would maybe go as far as saying this bar is pretty salty. This will be due to the amount of peanuts found in the bar compared to its small 45g size. The ratio is a bit off. That being said, I will say that I found this bar very comfortable to eat. It’s just a shame the chocolate flavour is lacking and isn’t as strong as I’d hoped.

Due to the saltiness alone, I wouldn’t be able to eat another ONE PLANT bar of this flavour straight after this one. Definitely at another time, just not straight after.

I am a little disappointed with the weight of this protein bar, 45g surely is pretty measly. On the other hand, the macros are pretty decent and considering it’s a vegan protein bar, I would class them as reasonable. A 45g ONE PLANT bar contains 175kcal, 7g fat, 21g carbs (of which a super tiny 1g added sugars) and 12g protein. Its ingredients aren’t too bad as they don’t contain palm oil, but they do natural flavours too. I will heavily praise them on their low sugar content as that’s impressive, given that it didn’t taste artificially sweet either!

Quite salty yet very satisfying. I’ve added this to the list of bars to buy again!

Although this ONE PLANT Chocolate Peanut Butter protein bar was pretty salty, it was comfortable to eat and packed a LOT of peanuts too! Only let downs are the lack of chocolate flavour as it only comes through slightly, not forgetting its small size! With all these factors taken into account, I still would class this as a tasty, enjoyable protein bar!

Would I buy another ONE Plant Chocolate Peanut Butter protein bar again? Yes, I would! Definitely a bar to enjoy whether you follow a vegan diet or not!
