Most of us don’t eat enough protein and it is hard to do unless you are consciously thinking about it. Having protein in your snacks helps you reach your protein goals, but will also keep you feeling fuller for longer (yay!). Here are some of my favourite high protein snacks that actually taste good.
Choc Peanut Butter Fudge Protein Bars
See photo above. Check out my recipe for this here. Add some natural peanut (or almond) butter for an extra protein boost!
High Protein Muffins
This recipe is very versatile (view recipe here). And you can use any flavours you want – you don’t necessarily need to use blueberries. Add some nut butter, chia seeds and/or flax seeds for added protein.
Choc Chip Cookie Dough Protein Balls
These are so easy to make and don’t require many ingredients. They are the perfect high protein, sweet treat! View recipe here.
Roasted Chickpeas Or Broadbeans
You could make these yourself, or you could buy them. I love the brand Fav-va Nuts – the only ingredients are chickpeas/broadbeans, canola oil, sea salt, onion powder and garlic powder. And they taste awesome!
A super easy high protein snack. Because nuts are so high in healthy fats, they are very high in calories. So just try to limit yourself to 1 handful or 1/4 cup to avoid going overboard.
Again, you could try and make these yourself or you could buy them. And they don’t need to be roasted either. I love them boiled with a bit of salt :)
Boiled or Scrambled Eggs
Another one that is SUPER easy and healthy. If you scramble them, you could also add in some spinach and green vegetables for a really healthy snack. Cottage cheese would also add some extra protein!
Make Your Own High Protein Dip
Some high protein ingredients you can put in include – nut butters, tahini, beans (kidney beans, butter beans, chickpeas, broadbeans, etc), cottage cheese, greek yoghurt, chia seeds. Serve it with crunchy vegetables or bean chips.
