My Favorite Protein Bars + Why I Love Them

I love a good protein bar. They’re easy to grab when I need a quick, but healthy snack and perfect to take on the go for running errands. I have however had some pretty unfortunate ones over the years, so when I find good ones, I love to share! These four are my tested and approved, all-time favorites and ones I have repurchased a million times!

These have recently become a staple in my everyday eats. They seriously taste like a cookie! They are on the lighter side as far as protein bars go, they aren’t the most filling one on my list but definitely fulfill any sweet craving you’re having! My favorite flavor is the peanut butter fudge, it’s SO good. It’s also the only flavor that I feel like I can eat for breakfast, all the other flavors are a little too sweet for a breakfast substitute. If you’re a girl scout cookie lover, the chocolate mint tastes just like a thin mint. YUM!

All of the power crunch bars have 13-14 grams of protein and 5-7 grams of sugar. Considering these taste like a dessert, these nutrition facts are pretty great!

I love a good One Bar! I stumbled on this one day at Target – I want in a bind and didn’t bring one with me (I usually do), so I got ended up spending a little time in the aisle, reading all the contents and LOVED that this one only had 1 gram of sugar. A lot of bars are packed with sugar, so I knew I wanted to give this one a try and I’ve been hooked ever since. They have a ton of great flavors but the almond bliss is my favorite!

This one tastes like a guilt-free rice crispy treat! It’s definitely a more filling option, it has 20 grams of protien and only 2 grams of sugar. I feel like most protein bars are a chewy consistency but this one is crunchy, which I love! My go-to flavor is the salted toffee pretzel, it’s the prefect sweet and salty mix.

I got introduced to this bar by a friend of ours! It’s the most “protein bar-esque” consistency wise, but that also makes it the most substantial (keeps me full longest)! It’s a great bar to have as a quick, out the door, breakfast because it’s definitely the least sweet of the bunch. My favorite flavor is the peanut butter chocolate!
