Choco Peppy-Mint Glo Bar

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on April 3, 2009


Good afternoon!

My attempt at making Chocolate Mint bars was a huge success. :)


So minty and chocolaty!


Nutritional Information (1 bar): 189 calories (kcal); 11g Total Fat; 25g Carbohydrates; 0mg Cholesterol; 4mg Sodium; 6g Fibre; 5g Protein.

Check out my bar page– I have updated it with the new bars! I am so excited to try out more versions. :)

Of course, I had to have one of my bars for my pre-workout snack.

Ingredients in these bars: Raw almonds, dates, peppermint extract, Organic cocoa powder, semi-sweet chocolate chips, Vanilla extract.


I also cranked the beats during my workout:

  • “Before He Cheats” by Carrie Underwood (love that song!)
  • “Me & U” by Cassie
  • “Silence” (Paul Oakenfold Mix) by Delirium
  • “London Bridge” by Fergie
  • “Touch It” by Busta Rhymes
  • and more!

My workout incorporated today’s BBBC Challenge:

  • Duration: 47 mins.
  • Speed: 4.0-4.3 mph, incline 10-12%
  • I did walk/run intervals. On every ‘5’ min. marker, I ran at 4.3 mph for 1.5 mins.
  • At minutes 22, 27, 32, and 37 I got off the treadmill and did the following (1 60 sec side plank, left; 1 60 sec. side plank, right; 1 60 sec. camel pose; 1 60 sec. Down Dog pose). I still have one pose left to do later tonight!

It was a fun workout.

Hope you health nuts have a NUTTY Friday.

i love the song ‘before he cheats’. i think i could rock it in a karaoke bar — so far have never gotten the chance, though!

Your knock of bars looks so great! It’s ahrd to see the deliciousness and not have the recipe…maybe you’d consider posting the basic technique sometime…


Erica April 3, 2009 at 3:34 pm

Hey lady! The bars look awesome! I want to try making my own :) Great nutritional stats too! I am going to be doing the side and wide plank later and a little yoga after my Body Attack class! Can’t wait ;) Have fun this weekend!

Ange, it sounds like you are doing so much for my shower on Sunday.. honestly, I hope you aren’t stressing yourself! It’s meant to be a fun weekend!

Ps- bring some running shoes and workout clothes, maybe we can get a walk in on Sunday morning! (or a run if you feel up to it!). We’ll see!


Shelby April 3, 2009 at 4:26 pm

Wow, those look just like Jocolats! I think I’ll make some too.

The bars look amazing! I may have to try and create my own at home. BTW…we have such similar music tastes! Love the playlist. You HAVE to download a few of my favorite cardio tunes: Pitbul (great regaton beats), The Step up to the Streets Soundtrack (great songs), and the new PCD cd is really good too :) Of course I already know you have my fav Brit Brit album :)


Kayzilla April 3, 2009 at 6:29 pm

omnomnomnom. Those bars look so delish~!

Have you ever listened to BoA? She’s a korean artist trying to make it big in America, looking at your playlist makes me think you might actually dig her:
(And her album is *excelent*! It reminded me of Britney’s new album. You can actually find all the songs on youtube too!)
