One of the most challenging parts of following any diet is to figure out what to eat when you are busy or travelling. I usually carry a bag of nuts, beef jerky or avocados. Keto-friendly bars were never my favourite option and most products I've seen were either high in carbs or included ingredients I wanted to avoid.

In this review I'd like to share my thoughts on Peregrine who make keto & paleo, travel-friendly bars. The company was crated by Rudy and Katherine, a couple passionate about health and nutrition and based in Colorado.

What are Peregrine Bars Made With?

Peregrine bars are made with healthy organic ingredients: macadamia nuts, 100% pastured chicken egg (no grain or soy feed), unsweetened huila cocoa, organic unsweetened coconut flakes, pecans, chia seeds, grass-fed ghee, unrefined coconut oil, grass-fed collagen, lime juice, smyrna figs, vanilla extract, Himalayan pink salt, cayenne pepper, stevia leaf.

The bars can be kept at room temperature for up to a week, two months in the fridge, and one year in the freezer.

How Many Carbs per Bar?

Peregrine bars are low in carbohydrates and high in healthy fats. One bar will be enough as a quick snack or a light meal.

Nutrition facts per serving (55 g): Total carbs: 8 g, Fiber: 5 g, Net carbs: 3 g, Protein: 6 g, Fat: 27 g, Saturated fat: 12 g, Energy (calories): 270 kcal, Magnesium: 63 mg (16% RDA), Potassium: 188 mg (9 % EMR). Calories from carbs: 4%, protein: 9%, fat: 87%.

Not a Sweet Treat But a Meal Replacement

These bars can be used as a meal replacement or a quick snack on the go. They are not sweet like most chocolate treats and they won't satisfy your sweet cravings. It's a healthy meal replacement that will keep hunger at bay.

My favourite treat is 90% dark chocolate and I found these bars to have the perfect balance of sweetness which is very subtle. I like the mild spicy kick and the tangy lime. The first ingredient are macadamia nuts which are delicious and high in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats.

If you like extra dark chocolate, then you will like these bars. My advice is that unless you have been sugar-free & keto for at least 4 weeks, Peregrine is probably not for you. You may simply find it too bitter.

One bar is enough for a light meal or as a pre or post workout snack. Since 87% of calories come from fats and only 9% from protein, I wouldn't have more than one bar per day to ensure you are meeting your protein target.

According to Peregrine:

"This is not a sweet treat - it's high-fat performance fuel! If you don't love dark chocolate, you'll want to approach this one with caution. It gets its flavor from bitter cacao, tangy lime and spicy cayenne - not from added sugars or artificial sweeteners of any kind. It's made entirely from real ingredients, each one intentionally selected to boost your performance and make you more awesome."

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

I'm always looking for a good meal replacement.  With my work we have a cafeteria and I usually end up at the salad bar which gets rather boring. Plus I need quick "nothing to think about" meals for when I am really busy, which is usually all the time! I'm excited about this product!

These look great!  Thank you for posting the review; looking forward to trying them!  We always travel with nuts, string cheese, celery and hard boiled eggs (when traveling by car with a small cooler pack).  Thanks!

The reported energy calories at 270kcal is not accurate. Just calculating the 27g of fat alone at 9kcal/g is 243. Then 6g protein x 4kcal/g is 24 + 8g carb x 4kcal/g is 32. 243+24+32=299. Even if fiber is incorrectly deducted from carb cal, 5g fiber x 4kcal (carbs) = 20. 299-20=279, not 270. How exactly are the macronutrient values being calculated to end up totalling 270kcal/bar?

I will ask Peregrine if they can explain the 9 kcal difference. When it comes to calculating energy from fibre, you would actually get more accurate results if you don't count fibre than if you count it. That's because:
1) Humans can only derive calories from soluble fibre and they cannot derive any energy from insoluble fibre. Most foods contain both types if fibre, some foods contain more insoluble fibre (e.g.nuts), some more soluble fibre (e.g. kohlrabi). More about this is here: Total Carbs or Net Carbs: What Really Counts?
2) Soluble fibre contains only 2  kcal/gram, not 4 kcal/gram. What this means is that unless you know the amount of soluble and insoluble fibre, there will always be an error. In general, this error is smaller if you don't count calories from fibre.
Back to the calculation: (6 g protein x 4 kcal) + (3 g net carbs x 4 kcal) + (5 g fibre if all soluble x 2 kcal) + (27 g fat x 9 kcal) = 24 + 12 + 10 + 243 = 289 kcal. If most fibre is insoluble (very likely since most of it is nuts), then we get to about 279 kcal.

Hi Suzanne, thanks for the question!
Nutrition calculators round grams to the nearest gram, and will often round total calories to the nearest 10 kcal mark to avoid implying precision that isn't there.
Like Martina said, we don't count insoluble fiber into kcal calculations. Our bars are probably closer to 274 kcal on average.
Let me know if you have any more questions!

I ❤ dark chocolate, the more bitter the better! On the go snack for me is salami and Gouda or moon cheese and kombucha.

Would love to give these bars a try, they sound great.

I would love to try these bars! Sometimes I don't have time to grab a real meal and need something to tide me over until I can eat something proper. This would certainly help to keep me on track and prevent temptation in those instances.

I would love to try these bars. I think it'a wonderful that it is not a sweet treat!

I use parmesian chips for my on the go snack.  I make enough each week to see me through the munchies.
