26 High Protein Snacks That Will Help You Lose Fat & Feel Great!
Make Ahead Protein Pops

Homemade Almond Crunch Protein Bars
“10 minutes, 6 ingredients and no baking required for these delicious and crunchy protein bars! Only 2 g of sugar, 5 g of carbs, vegan & gluten free.” Recipe from ifoodreal.com.
Protein Breakfast Bars (Vegan + GF)
“These bars are simply made up of a mixture of fruit, nuts & seeds, making them full of fibre, protein and nutritional goodness. Not to mention that they are naturally gluten-free, vegan & paleo-friendly.” Recipe from Wallflowerkitchen.
Homemade Beef Jerky
“Beef jerky is one of my favorite snacks, but it’s very difficult to find commercial beef jerky that isn’t made with soy sauce and sugar. Most beef jerkies contain quite a few carbs per serving, in addition to an insanely high amount of sodium. This homemade beef jerky is not only tastier than commercial versions, it’s also made with no soy sauce and no sugar.” Recipe from HealthRecipeBlogs.
Cobb Salad Avocado Toast
“Turn toast into lunch with this veggie-packed cobb salad avocado toast — loaded with hard boiled egg, turkey bacon, blue cheese and micro greens.” Recipe from EatingBirdFood.
Almond Goji Energy Bars
“These are super easy to adapt, too. Simply use whatever nuts you like best or have on hand, and whatever dried fruit is available to substitute for the goji berries. Maybe next time I’ll add a touch of cinnamon or vanilla, but these babies are wonderful as is.” Recipe from FreshPlanetFlavour.
3 Ingredient Almond Butter Bites
“I couldn’t wait any longer to post these 3 ingredient Almond butter bites for you. I actually made them in about 10 minutes a couple of days ago because I wanted something sweet but still healthy.” Recipe from EatGood4Life.
Healthy Peanut Butter Mousse
“Would you believe me if I told you that this Peanut Butter Mousse is healthy? Well you should, because it is! It’s all-natural, refined sugar-free, low-carb, high protein and totally nutritious. Don’t worry, though, it doesn’t taste like broccoli or anything. This super easy four-ingredient mousse is super rich, super creamy, perfectly sweet and packed with peanut butter flavor.” Recipe from DessertsWithBenefits. (Incredible site with tons of amazing recipes)
Paleo Cashew Coconut Protein Fudge
“Inspired and similar to my favourite No Bake Cashew Coconut Protein bars, this Paleo No Bake Coconut Cashew Protein fudge looks impressive but really- It’s quick and easy to whip up. The base is made from just four key ingredients (five if you include a sweetener)- Coconut flour, chopped cashews, protein powder and a liquid of choice (I used cartoned coconut milk)”. Recipe from TheBigMansWorld.
Tuna Salad On Crackers
“The great thing about Tuna Salad on Crackers is that you have almost everything on hand. Both tuna and crackers are shelf stable and I think just about everyone has some mayo in their fridge. Lately I’ve been buying the mayo made with canola oil because it is like half the calories and tastes just as good.” Recipe from Garnishandglaze.
High Protein + High Fiber Chocolate Pudding
“I ordered raw and grass-fed cottage cheese from a local farm and it’s the best cottage cheese I’ve ever had. I used most of it to make a lasagna (I use it in place of ricotta because it has a higher protein content). But I still had a ton leftover. I thought it would be interesting to make a protein packed, high fiber pudding with it.” Recipe from Ancestral-Nutrition.
Fudgy Protein Mug Cake
“It’s time for the cutest, fastest, healthiest little chocolate mug cake you’ll ever see. This is the first mug cake recipe I’ve ever created and I have been making it over and over because it’s easy, tastes delicious–like actual chocolate cake–and is made with a protein powder that has a short list of ingredients that I pronounce (beef isolate, cocoa, stevia).” Recipe from FreshPlanetFlavour.
One-Minute Cookie Dough Greek Yogurt
“This is one of my favorite go-to snacks! Greek yogurt is a wonderful snack because it is packed with protein, but some people don’t enjoy the taste. Well, this recipe may be a game changer for you if that’s the case!” Recipe from DashingDish.
Vanilla Bean Protein Frappuccino
“This copycat Starbucks Vanilla Bean Frappuccino is a protein packed version of their creamy vanilla shake. Now you can save money, sugar, and unwanted calories with this homemade version!” Recipe from DashingDish.
Easy Egg Wraps
“These Easy Egg Wraps are perfect for a low-carb, high-protein snack. Make several ahead of time and fill with things like turkey, avocado, cheese, hummus and more.” Recipe from TheLeanGreenBean.
Quick ‘n Easy No-Bake Protein Bars
“I’ve made these protein bars a few different ways over the past few weeks – one with peanut butter, one with almond butter, and the last with sunflower seed butter.” Recipe from Ohsheglows.com
Cashew Cookie Dough Bars
“If you love Larabars like I do, then you must give these a try. They are a replica of the cashew cookie larabar. Now if you’re wondering why the heck you would want to make these at home if you can just go to the store and buy one, I’ll let you in on a little secret. They taste SO much better than the packaged ones!” Recipe from Ediblesoundbites.

This bowl has a delicious combination of blueberries and yogurt paired with coconut and walnuts. Consider toasting the coconut and walnuts for extra flavor. You could also add chia seeds, flax seeds, or experiment with different yogurt flavors.” Recipe from SlenderKitchen.
