Sometimes we need a quick snack on the go or a little pick-me-up, and many of us turn to protein bars. They can help take the edge off of hunger, stop cravings, and even provide some nutrition.

Plus, they are much healthier than reaching for a Snickers bar.

But, just because you’re grabbing a protein bar or a snack bar that is being marketed as a healthy alternative, doesn’t mean it is right for you and something you should be eating.

We bought a bunch of protein bars that are being sold as healthy snacks, many of which you have most likely seen, if not tried yourself.

Watch the video below as we go over some of the top protein bars that people go for as we pick out which ones have the best ingredients and which ones you should just avoid altogether.

Top Protein Bars You Should Try

Quest Bar

This bar is the one you’ve probably seen the most. Everyone has heard of the Quest Bar. They are everywhere and do an excellent job at marketing their product. And almost everyone in the fitness space has eaten these at one point or another, including me. These are not on my list of favorites but I wanted to explain how we use these in people’s fitness journeys.

In fact, we even put them on our meal plans, but not for the reason you may think.

While this bar is gluten-free and contains less than 1 gram of sugar, as shown right on the front of their package, when you turn it around you find a lot more. Some of the first things you notice, such as Sucralose, can begin to impact the gut when consumed on a regular basis.

We also find soluble corn fiber and palm oil. While these are things that we don’t want to ingest too much of, the reason that we include these on our Custom Meal Plans is because, for someone just coming off eating candy bars, such as Snickers or Twix, this is a much better option and is a step in the right direction. For many, it is much easier going from the processed sweets they are used to eating to a Quest Bar than it is cutting it all out at once and going to straight protein.

Epic & Tanka

The two best bars that you can get are Epic and Tanka. These are immaculate and delicious. However, they are not like your typical protein bar, but rather are more like a large beef stick.

These two bars are made from all natural ingredients and are always my go-to protein bar. Just like when choosing a good protein powder, you want to make sure that your protein bars are 100% natural with few ingredients.

Epic bars offer chicken, turkey, bison, and bacon options, are grass-fed, and contain the perfect amount of fats, protein, and carbs. On the other hand, Tanka bars are made from Buffalo meat and are hormone free, MSG free, gluten free, and nitrate free. They also have a sweet kick as they contain a few raspberries.

Health Warrior, Oatmega & RXBar

After the Epic and Tanka bars, I would say Health Warrior, Omega, and RXBars are your next best options.

These bars are some of the healthier choices compared to the majority that are on the shelves. They are made of natural ingredients, and the only the thing I would say I don’t like about these bars is the sugar they contain.

And if you remember our discussion on sugar, you know that it can have an impact on your goals. So when you are looking at the ingredients to different protein bars or just foods in general, be sure you know what you are looking for and why.

Wilde Boulder, Lenny and Larry’s Cookies & Muscle Brownies

Companies promote these options as healthy alternatives to eating actual cookies and brownies. And I get questions about this all the time.

All you have to do is turn them over and look at the ingredients on the back. These snacks contain so many different ingredients that it would take you a long time just to read them all.

Just because companies market them as a healthier option, doesn’t mean they are. These are cookies and brownies, and I would not recommend consuming these on a regular basis. Once in a while won’t kill you, but know what you are eating before you put it in your body.

Jane Health

And post filming the video above, I have found a bar I love even more than any of the ones mentioned, and that is Jane Health. These bars are made with grass-fed whey and contain no artificial chemicals or preservatives. And they are sweetened with stevia. Plus, they taste amazing and will satisfy any sweet tooth!

Jane Health is a great option if you don’t have time to make your own bars and simply need something that is quick and easy. These are so tasty and are only found online.
