We believe life is complicated enough, so each Rise Bar is made simple with only the essential ingredients needed to fuel your busy life. We’ve got the shortest ingredient list you’ve ever seen: 3 ingredients and 20 grams of protein make the Rise Almond Honey bar the simplest protein bar that never compromises on taste.

Every Rise Protein, Energy & Breakfast Bar is mixed and packed in small batches daily in our California Kitchen.  We’re totally Non-GMO, Soy, Peanut and Gluten Free and NEVER use artificial sugars, preservatives or sugar alcohols. That’s our promise to you and how #werisetogether.



We keep it simple: Real food ingredients, high quality protein, and deliciously tasty.


With 8 delicious flavors and 5 ingredients or less, each Rise Bar has the nutrition you need without all the extra stuff you don’t. In fact, our best-selling Almond Honey Protein Bar has only 3 ingredients!


Fueling life’s adventures with healthy protein has never been easier. We’ve packed 15-20 grams of high quality, easily digestible whey or pea protein isolate in each bar to keep you sustained with whole food based, real energy.


The Beginning

Rise Bar was founded in 2011 with a revolutionary idea never before seen in the nutrition and food industries.

A 20g protein bar with only 3 ingredients.

In 2010, Peter Spenuzza, found himself stuck in a daily grind that was taking him away from his passions of fitness, health and adventure.

Like many of us he soon realized that although he was successful, his personal life was not being fulfilled through his work. After weighing his options he decided to take some time to travel and experience life.

He followed his passion for health, adventure and fitness while searching for his purpose. While traveling Pete struggled to find foods that did not upset his stomach. Through this process he identified he had a gluten sensitivity which was causing his body to negatively react to many of the protein bars he was eating on his travels. What to do? Well, eventually he began to make his own bars with almond butter, honey and whey protein.

This simple recipe is now the foundation of our brand.

Rise Bar Today

Four years later our Almond Honey Protein Bar is the favorite of millions of consumers around the world. Pete still taste tests random batches each day to ensure the ingredients and product standards never waver.

But we don’t just make bars. Today Rise works with lifestyle bloggers, entrepreneurs, health and fitness influencers, yogis and adventure seekers. We want to share with you the simple tips from these inspiring individuals that you can use to help improve your own health, fitness, lifestyle and relationships.

That’s how #WeRiseTogether !
