Default Pounding heart - from high fat?

I've noticed that shortly after eating my homemade protein bars, my heart starts pounding noticeably. Not really faster, just...harder, it seems.

The bars are 21g fat, 4g carbs, 19g protein. They're probably the most concentrated dose of fat I eat (peanut butter and whipped cream, after all). Is the fat causing the heart pounding, and if so, should it concern me? If not...what could it be?

Likely either a food sensitivity to any one or more of the ingredients (peanuts and dairy would top that list) or you are reacting to the potential mycotoxins (mold toxins) in the peanuts.

Either way, you'll want to look into it. The peanuts are heavily suspect, IMO.

I personally get a heavy, faster heart beat after eating sushi.

Because I suspected toxic metals in the sushi (particularly mercury), I tried taking some oral DMSA (chelating agent) before eating it the last time. Watch out for those AYCE sushi places--yes, they are tasty and enjoyable--they also are likely giving you a significant dose of all those bad things we hear about in cheap fish/seafood.

Bam, no heart issue. FWIW.

Ingredients (per bar):

1 scoop (15g) protein powder (I use a pure unflavored custom blend of whey/casein)
1.5 tbsp peanut butter (salted crunchy, of course)
