Best Tasting and Healthiest Protein Bars for Everyone

Updated: May 18, 2021

Athletes to moms are looking for nutritious, on-the go healthy snacks or maintaining muscle mass in between workouts. Protein Bars are a convenient snack because they are very portable. They fit easily into a gym bag, purse or at your office desk.

What Makes a “Healthy” Protein Bar?

Always do your due diligence when choosing a Protein snack! Why? A lot of bars may contain high servings of sugar alcohols or saturated fats. Have you ever bitten into one of these bars and smell a faint odor of alcohol? That’s sugar alcohol.

Dieticians say the ideal protein bar has somewhere between 180 - 300 calories and 20 grams of protein. Below are our criteria for a healthy protein bar:

· Contain at least 10 grams of protein. 15-21 grams to build or gain muscle.

· No more than 5 grams of sugar. No sugar alcohol.

· 15 grams of fiber. Too much fiber can cause stomach issues but is needed to process protein.

· Tastes good. Lets face it, a cardboard taste is hard to stomach.

The Winner is….

Our team tried a variety of bars meeting the criteria listed above. We all had different winners and losers (opinions) but one bar was on everybody’s list.

Because everyone’s nutritional needs are different, always consult your physician.
