The Best Paleo Protein Bars & Bites
When it comes to snacking, bars are a super popular option and it’s no surprise as they are convenient, tasty, and can satisfy those pesky sugar cravings. But, truth be told…not all bars are created equal. Many store-bought options contain added refined sugars and artificial ingredients so this list of protein bars (and balls/bites!) will give you plenty of homemade options to try!
What’s so great about ‘paleo’ bars?
The nice thing about paleo bars is that they fall into the guidelines of paleo eating which means they are automatically gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, and made with whole food ingredients. Aside from the use of honey or egg whites found in some of these bars, many of these are vegan too!
Whether you eat paleo or not, you’ll love these delicious snack bar options to make for protein-packed healthy snaking. Enjoy!
