31 High Protein Weight Loss Snacks That You Can Enjoy Anytime Of Day!
Kale And Goat Cheese Fritata Cups
“In our house, frittatas, the Italian egg dish that’s often made in a skillet, are usually reserved for a Sunday clean-out-the-fridge night. They’re simple to throw together, satisfying, and you can use almost any vegetable or cheese you have on hand.” Recipe: TheKitchn.
Ham & Cheese Roll Ups
“We’re going ham over this breakfast.” Recipe: Delish.
Crispy Oven Roasted Chickpeas
“Those cans of chickpeas sitting in your cupboard have been hiding an amazing secret. Roasted in the oven, chickpeas transform into a crispy, salty, savory snack. So tiny. So easy to eat by the handful. So addictive. This is dangerous knowledge.” Recipe: TheKitchn.
Funfetti High Protein Pancakes
“Breakfast wouldn’t be breakfast without some fruit, right? Well I mashed up some bananas for in these guys and they do a nice job of keeping the pancakes nice and moist, but not too heavy. You can taste some of the banana flavor coming through along with the cake batter flavor, but it’s not overpowering.” Recipe: PeanutButterAndFitness.
Bacon Egg And Cheese Roll-Ups
The perfect low carb, high protein snack + bacon! What more could you ask for? Recipe: Delish.

Sure, you could go get a free one at Krispy Kreme or Dunkin’ Donuts but where’s the fun – and protein – in that? You get to play with fire if you make these S’mores Protein Donuts 😉 Plus they’ve got 7 grams of protein per donut.” Recipe: PeanutButterAndFitness.

One Minute Cookie Dough Greek Yoghurt
“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! With a few simple ingredients, and a quick stir, plain Greek yogurt can be lick-the-bowl good!” Recipe: DashingDish.
Banana Protein Shake
“Protein shakes are a great way to quickly get all sorts of protein as well as fill you up for a meal replacement. I like to have a protein shake every morning for breakfast. They take less than 5 minutes to make and are super delicious.” Recipe: ASweetPeaChef.

Cake Batter Protein Bars
“Homemade protein bars with oat flour, coconut flour, almond butter, and cake flour to taste like cake batter in bar form!” Recipe: JenniferMeyering.
Peanut Butter Protein Cookies
“Problem with cookies is they’re not the best things for a healthy diet. Not that I can’t enjoy one or two on a cheat day here and there. But, it got me thinking, wouldn’t it be awesome if peanut butter cookies were actually healthy?” Recipe: ASweetPeaChef.
No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bars
“And so these bars were made. You get protein in all sorts of ways — there is the peanut butter and protein powder for the main protein, but there are also chia seeds and oatmeal which not only add to the flavor and texture, but also bring some protein to the table.” Recipe: ASweetPeaChef.
Strawberry Cheesecake Protein Pancakes

The Easiest Protein Pancakes
“I will say, as good as these do taste, they are designed to be able to eat pancakes for breakfast and not feel like you’re cheating. I mean think about it, you’re eating one banana, one egg, about 20 grams of plant based protein, and cinnamon. Maple syrup is a natural sweetener (totes fine), but they don’t even need the extra sweetness”. Recipe: Spinach4Breakfast.
Pumpkin Apple Protein French Toast Cups
“I made my French toast cups in these silicone jumbo muffin molds, but you can just as easily use a regular muffin tin. The French toast cups will bake faster in the muffin tin, so if you’re trying to get breakfast on the table more quickly, just go for the muffin tin.” Recipe: PeanutButterAndFitness.
