Prolon L-Bar Nut-Based Bar Copycat Recipe

You have been asking me for Prolon L-Bar Recipes, so here’s the Nut-Based Bar copycat recipe. So far, we have the Prolon crackers, Choco Crisp Bars, soups, and the L-Drink. You don’t have to eat the same foods as you find in the Prolon kit to do a modified fast. Personally, I prefer The Easiest and Simplest Meal Plan Ever For Your Modified Fast but I understand why you love getting these recipes and I am happy to create them.

Original Prolon L-Bar Nutrition Facts

As usual, let’s start by looking at the nutrition facts for the original Prolon L-Bars.

Copycat Prolon Nut Based Bar Nutrition Facts

Here are the nutrition facts for my copycat version. I want to reiterate that nutrition facts can be off by as much as 20%, but that’s how close I could get.

Some Notes About the Prolon Nut Based Bars Copy Cat Ingredients

There are some things I wanted to mention regarding the ingredients of this nut-based bar recipe.

Nuts

First, I didn’t have macadamia nuts, so I used cashews. You can do that as well but be aware that cashews contain more carbs so you will be changing the nutritional profile of the recipe. I love this visual representation you can find on The Diet Doctor.

Vitamin E (tocopherols)

When it comes to the nutrition facts of the Prolon Nut Based Bars, the only difference the vitamin E softgels make is to increase the fat content of the recipe. They add a total of 10 grams of fat to the recipe. I didn’t have much time (that’s why I didn’t end up getting macadamia nuts and used cashews), so I just purchased the only vitamin E brand I could find at my Superstore.

Buy a liquid version of your vitamin E supplement if you don’t want to have to open your softgels like I did.

More About Tocopherols

Tocopherols are a group of chemicals that make up the vitamin E family. Tocotrienols and tocopherols may be referred to as vitamin E, but notice that the ingredients for the nut-bar recipe specify tocopherols.

Vitamin E is an antioxidant, so it helps neutralize free radicals. Free radicals are linked to skin aging, cancer, and inflammation.

I mentioned that there is a distinction between tocotrienols and tocopherols (the groups of chemicals in the vitamin E family). Research has shown that only tocopherols can correct vitamin E deficiency, so it looks like tocopherols is the form your body needs to function efficiently.

A 2014 study found that the antioxidant properties of vitamin E may help protect the brain from free radical injury.

Inulin

I bought my inulin on Amazon. Inulin is a prebiotic fiber and it looks like a fine powder. Prebiotics feed the good bacteria in your gut, so it’s always a good idea to add them to your diet. Inulin is usually made from chicory roots. Some excellent foods sources of prebiotics are:

  • Chicory root
  • Onions
  • Oatmeal
  • Asparagus
  • Dandelion greens
  • Jerusalem artichokes
  • Bananas
  • Barley
  • Apples

So, just as a quick recap: probiotics are live bacteria found in foods or supplements while prebiotics nourish the good bacteria in your gut. They are both beneficial to your health and well-being.
