Almond Coconut Crunch
Minimum Order Size: 96 unit
Even though these raw protein bars taste like dessert, they still pack a nutritious punch. Maybe that’s why many people are starting to call Papa Steve’s NO JUNK Raw Protein Bars “The best protein bars on the planet.”
So what’s inside? First, let’s talk about what’s NOT inside these delicious protein bars:
NO chemicals, NO fillers, NO cheap soy protein, NO refined sugar, NO sugar alcohols, NO GMO ingredients, NO gluten, NO JUNK!
Instead, they’re filled with real food—most of it locally sourced and organic.
And that’s exactly what you get with our Almond Coconut Crunch bars. These delicious real food bars contain two of the best sources of healthy fat on the plant: almond and coconut.
Almonds contain a type of fat called monounsaturated fat, which is the same heart-healthy kind of fat found in olive oil. According to the American Heart Association, this type of fat can help reduce bad cholesterol levels and lower your risk of heart disease! (They’re also a great source of vitamin E, an important antioxidant that many Americans need more of.)
Coconut is high in saturated fat, but it’s not your average saturated fat like the kind found in cheese or steak. Coconut is rich in a rare type of fat called medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are an extremely healthy source of fat.
We hand-pick our ingredients from local SoCal farmers days before production so that everything is as fresh as possible. Most ingredients are locally sourced and organic, and everything is handmade with love in southern CA (mixed, formed, packaged, and shipped by hand) every week.
These are not like other bars that sit on the shelves for 8-10 months before you purchase them. Papa Steve’s NO JUNK Raw Protein Bars are made by hand every single week, which means they always contain fresh, raw ingredients.
We recommend storing your bars in the fridge, especially in warm climates and during the summer, to keep them tasting fresh & delicious.
Here’s how long your bars will stay good at different temperatures:
1-2 months at room temperature, 2-3 months in the fridge, 6 months when frozen
(Please note that because the bars will stay good for 1-2 months at room temperature, they are perfectly fine during shipment.)
Whey Protein, Organic Dates, Organic Almond Butter, Organic Coconut, Tapioca Fiber, Organic Raw Coconut Nectar, Organic Puffed Brown Rice, Organic Apples, Organic Apple Juice Concentrate, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Organic Cinnamon

About the Brand
I grew up like most kids in the 80’s – full of processed, convenient foods. When I went to college, I decided that it was time for a change. I wanted to look good and feel good about my body. I started working out but I was not aware of what I should or should not be eating. It took me years of eating to find out that the “healthy” foods I was eating were just junk in disguise, full of sugar and artificial ingredients. I wanted to find out how food was made and how its mass produced in manufacturing plants. I wondered how mass manufactured food could be fresh when it had to be stored in warehouses all over the USA for months at a time. It had to be made in giant machines.
After all this discovery, I learned that there is a better way. I met ranchers and farmers dedicated to raising livestock and growing produce using responsible, respectful, and sustainable techniques. By partnering with these producers we figured we could make a difference in the world of food. After seeing how things could be done, I decided to start making my own protein bar with raw nuts, seeds, fruits and superfoods. I wanted it to be fresh made weekly and not mass produced. After a few trials and errors, I shared my creation with a few workout buddies and they loved the real taste of it and how the bars made them feel good about what they were eating!
I then tested a few flavors at Gold’s Gym and they liked it enough to want to start carrying it immediately. In March 2011 I started selling Papa Steve's Bars at Golds Gym Venice, followed by Whole Foods Venice 6 months later. Today, our bars are sold online and in local Southern California stores and up north in Santa Cruz.
