what are some good brands for protein bars? kcals aren't a huuuuge issue (up to 150-300 is fine) but the bigger and more protein the better. I don't like eating meat bc of how much oil/butter goes into cooking it when other people make it. freaks me out. and im too squeamish to cook it myself. so i eat hella protein bars every day but the ones i have now are mostly sugar.

Barebells make some good ones, my personal fave from them is the blueberry cake one. Its sooo delicious. Quest bars are good but on the expensive side. Ive seen a lot of ppl speek good about misfits bars tho i havent had them myself.

i personally use quest around 180 / 210 for 20 grams of protein
simply protein 150 for 14 grams of protein
think! 150 for 10 grams of protein
if you want more protein maybe consider greek yogurt
light and fit 80 for 12 grams

Epic bars: 140 - 180 calories, less sugar than most bars, and very filling.

Misfits, Grenade and Battle bites are the best.

 

Misfits are all under 200 kcals, have 15 - 16g protein and a vegan. 

 

Grenade is between 210 - 230 and are the best non chalky tasting ones- my favorite flavor is the jaffa quake ones (like chocolate orange). They genuinely taste like chocolate bars, I had a big case of them a few months ago and they were amazing. They all have 20 - 23g protein. 

Battle bites are a new favourite of mine, they're all 20g protein and around 210ish calories BUT they come in 2 bitesized pieces, so you can just eat one piece for like 100-110 kcals if you're trying to keep it low one day/have a smaller snack for whatever reason. Best flavours are donut and white choc toasted marshmallow.

Quest or bust... The cookie dough chocolate chip flavor of course. I don't feel hungry after and it gets rid of any brain fog.
