7 Reasons To Love Our Vegan Lemon Cashew Protein Bars


So many people call our vegan Lemon Cashew protein bars their snack soulmate — even if they're not following a plant-based diet.

These 4-ingredient superstars are perfect for anyone who wants to ditch the processed junk and embrace a healthier, more energizing whole-food snack. The fact that they taste like your favorite lemon shortbread doesn't hurt, either. 😊

But what actually makes these the best vegan protein bars?

Let's talk about the science behind these ingredients and why a minimalist approach to protein bars is a total game-changer for your wellness journey.

7 Reasons You'll Love Rise Lemon Cashew Protein Bars 💛

To enjoy the benefits of eating protein bars, you need a bar that’s more whole foods than candy (or, worse, science experiment). Unfortunately, it’s becoming harder to find healthy vegan protein bars your taste buds dig.

✨ Here’s what makes our Lemon Cashew Protein Bars so magical:

1. They Make Clean Eating a No-Brainer

Finding a clean vegan protein bar with real ingredients is a challenge. Most contain questionable mystery ingredients, hidden sugars, fillers, preservatives, or terrible-for-you sugar alcohols.

Research shows that processed foods with these bad guys increase inflammation in your body.[*] This chronic inflammation is linked to poor gut health, obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, digestive issues, Alzheimer's, and even cancer.[*]

The beauty of our Lemon Cashew protein bars is their simple, recognizable, 4-ingredient list. They contain just cashews, pea protein, coconut nectar, and organic lemon extract. That's it! 

You’ll know exactly what’s going into your body and feel good about helping it thrive. This transparency is just one reason minimalist protein bars are the MVP of clean eating.

2. They Add More Clean, Plant-Based Protein To Your Diet 💪

Getting enough protein on a vegan diet can be a major struggle.

But reaching your protein intake goal is non-negotiable. Dietary protein gives your body the essential amino acids it needs to:[*]

Protein sources really matter when choosing the healthiest protein bar.

Take soybeans, for example. Over 95% of soybeans in the US are genetically modified (GMO).[*] Soy protein is also ultra-processed and has been connected to allergies, hormonal disturbances, cancer, and organ toxicity.[*] Yikes! 😬

Then there’s pea protein. This sustainable plant protein comes from yellow peas. It boasts an impressive amino acid profile (especially when combined with cashews), is easily digestible, and is very bioavailable (so your body can put it to work ASAP).

Psst! You'll score 15 grams of plant protein in each Rise Lemon Cashew whole-food protein bar!

The benefits of plant-based protein are worth snagging even if you don't follow a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle.

Studies comparing whey or pea protein for athletes show that both result in similar body composition, muscle thickness, workout performance, and strength scores.[*]

There's also a clear link between plant-based protein and better gut health, better cholesterol profiles, and lower risks of inflammation, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and other chronic conditions.[*]

Researchers even say replacing just 3% of your total protein intake with plant protein may decrease your risk of death by 10%![*]

3. You Can Harness the Benefits of Cashews

Cashews are more than nature's tastiest munchies. These creamy nuts are a nutritional powerhouse! Cashews are loaded with the best healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants.

Though cashews are an incomplete protein source on their own, they become a complete protein source that delivers all those essential amino acids when teamed up with pea protein. #DreamTeam

4. They Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth Sans Guilt 😋

We all deserve a little sweetness in our lives, but not when it comes at the health expense caused by refined sugar. That's why we can't say enough good things about coconut nectar!

This natural, better-for-you sugar comes from the blossoms of coconut palm trees. It has a much lower glycemic index than sugar (35 compared to sugar's 63), meaning it won't cause those dreaded blood sugar spikes and crashes that leave you tired, hangry, and cranky.

Coconut nectar also adds a subtle caramel-like flavor that perfectly complements the zingy lemon in our plant-based protein bars.

5. They Taste Like Sunshine ☀️

Unlike the artificial flavorings in most lemon-flavored protein bars, we use organic lemon extract. This concentrated extract is made from the oils of organic lemon peels, so it adds a bright, refreshing, citrusy flavor to our natural protein bars.
