Whether you’re headed out of town or your next adventure entails running errands and checking off your to-do list, these easy, high protein snacks are perfect to take with you any time, anywhere.
These homemade snack recipes are packed with nourishing ingredients that will keep you full, satisfied and free from that 3pm hanger. There’s literally nothing worse than being stuck in a car, at a store, or on a plane without anything to munch on, especially when your next full meal might be a few hours away. That’s why I opt for these bars, snack mixes and cookies (yes, protein cookies!) to keep me feeling satisfied.
The guy in the middle seat is definitely gonna want a bite.

Hope you get a chance to try them!
Perfect timing! I’m heading out of town on Tuesday. Now, the hard part: deciding what to make!
So many good ones in here!! You’ll have to let me know what you chose 🙂
Le zinc à burger, rue childebert à lyon, propose des buns sans gluten , et font attention lors de la préparation: pas aussi bon que le « vrai » mais quel bonheur pour mon fils et mon mari de pouvoir manger un burger!!! Depuis peu, je crois qu ils proposent aussi un carrot cake, mais pas encore goûté ! A saint Symphorien d ozon : le snack/resto du golf du verger : un plat sans gluten sur la cartemais surtout un chef qui vous prépare sur demande un plat sans gluten. Il a quelques clients cœliaques, et du coup s y connaît bien donc pas de risque d erreur (par exemple, il nous a proactivement mentionné qu ils faisaient attention aux épices qui pouvaient contenir des traces de gluten..). Enfin, je me permets une note sur les gasteliers, pâtisserie « sans gluten » à lyon 6eme : ils utilisent du chocolat valrhona.qui contient des traces de gluten, donc attention pour ceux qui mangent sans gluten par obligation et pas par simple choix!
Thank you for so many vegan-friendly options! High protein cookies, chickpeas, homemade protein bars, and energy bites always sound delicious, even as a meal! I’d simply just eat a bigger portion of these snacks as a meal. Yummy!
Thank you 🙂
Leaving for a week-long trip to Europe in SIX DAYS and can’t wait to make some of these yummy treats!! Doubt they’ll last me until the end of the trip when I have a 20-hour layover in Iceland😂😅
Omg these are PERFECT to take! But so true about the layover – better than airport snacks 🙂
The list 40+ high protein snacks you posted was very helpful for me thank you so much.
Excellent timing! On Tuesday, I’m leaving the city. The difficult part is now choosing what to make!
Haha so many ideas! Hope you find some that you love 🙂
Hey, this is a great post I just found, and believe me, I’ve been looking for one just like it for the past week or so and have had a hard time finding it. Thank you very much, and I’ll be looking forward to reading more of your posts.The Wordle Today
