low fat high protein snacks

Are you trying to lose some weight or bulk up? Then you want to make sure you have high protein, low-fat snacks on hand for when you’re craving the munchies.

High protein snacks are pretty filling- even more filling than snacks that are high in fat. As an added bonus, eating high-protein snacks increases your metabolism, which helps you lose weight.

It’s best to make sure those high protein snacks are low in fat as well. That is because fat is high in calories.

And the more calories you eat, the harder it is to lose weight.

So, today I’m sharing 21 High Protein Low Fat Snacks. They’re not only tasty but sure to help you meet your nutrition goals.

To keep your snacks fresh longer, make sure you store them in good airtight-storage containers like these. If you prefer lighter containers, these ones are a good option.

1. Vegan Pumpkin Protein Bard

Are you feeling peckish? Give these vegan protein bars a try.

The pumpkin puree and maple syrup add sweetness. This balances the bitterness of the dark chocolate chips.

What I enjoy most about these bars is that they only contain 56 calories. So, you can have more than one and not feel guilty.

They’re also perfect for meal prep. That’s because you can store them in the fridge for up to a week.

And they last in the freezer for up to three months.

To keep them vegan, make sure you use vanilla vegan protein powder. I recommend this one here.

One serving contains 21 grams of plant-based protein and no sugar at all.

Looking to make an easy snack to make with your kiddos? This yogurt bark is the perfect “project.”

It’s creamy and colorful. The pistachio nuts add a nice crunch.

It’s also pretty easy to make. You need 4 ingredients: low-fat Greek yogurt, maple syrup, pomegranate seeds, and pistachio nuts.

Besides being high in protein, Greek yogurt is pretty nutritious. It’s rich in calcium, which is essential for healthy bones.

It also contains probiotics. Probiotics are good for your gut and boost your immune system.

To make the frozen yogurt bark, start by mixing your yogurt and maple syrup. Then spread your yogurt mixture into a silicone baking tray like this. This will make it easier to get out.

Add pomegranate seeds and pistachio nuts. Next, lightly tap your tray a couple of times so that the seeds and nuts sink in.

Finally, freeze for 4 hours before breaking into pieces.

They’re creamy and super flavorful. They taste so yummy, you’ll want more than one.

Yet, they’re so satisfying that you won’t binge on them. Yay!

What I like most about them is that they’re made with healthy ingredients. You’re using ingredients like rolled oats, peanut butter, honey, ground flaxseeds, and Ceylon cinnamon.

Besides acting as a binder, ground flaxseeds add heart-healthy omega-3s. They also have antioxidants, which are good for your health.

And they’re rich in fiber, which helps you stay full. Besides using ground flaxseeds in these protein balls, you can add them to smoothies, oatmeal and use them in your baked goods. If you’d like to pick some up, you can get some here.

I love muffins, as I’m sure many of you do too. But your typical muffins contain lots of calories and sugar.

So, you don’t want to indulge in them often. With these ones, you can have one every day, if you choose.

They are moist and delicious. Also, they’re naturally sweetened with bananas and maple syrup.

So, they’re sweet, but not too sweet. The sea salt makes the flavors pop.

As an added bonus, they’re gluten-free. That’s because you’re using rolled oats instead of flour to make them.

Besides being gluten-free, rolled oats are rich in bone-building minerals such as manganese, phosphorus, and magnesium.

They also contain beta-glucans. These are the soluble fiber that helps you feel full and promotes the growth of good bacteria.

To make sure your oats are really gluten-free, make sure you choose certified gluten-free oats like these ones here.

They’re moist, chewy, and taste so much like an apple pie dessert bar. But they’re better for you.

They’re also low carb. So, they’re perfect if you’re watching your carbs.

To make sure they’re low carb, you’ll be using coconut flour. Besides being low carb, coconut flour is rich in fiber.

It is also a really good source of iron. Besides using it to make protein bars, you can use it to make pancakes, baked goods, or even bread your meat. If you need to get some, you can get some here.

You will also be using almond flour. Almond flour is a low carb flour that is also rich in Vitamin E, which you need for healthy skin.

And it contains manganese, magnesium, and phosphorus, which you need for healthy bones. Just like coconut flour, you can use it for baking. If you’re running low on it, you can get some here.

I enjoy game day, as I’m sure many of you do too. You get to enjoy good company, and if you’re lucky, watch your favorite team win.

They’re moist on the inside yet crunchy on the outside. And they’re smoky and savory- your guests will love them.

They’re also healthier than your typical game day food. That’s because of the tofu.

Tofu is a rich source of plant-based protein. It is also a great source of calcium and manganese.

Additionally, it contains isoflavones, which are antioxidants that have various health benefits.

To ensure your tofu nuggets are crispy, make sure you press your tofu well before coating it in breadcrumbs. This tofu press here does a pretty good job.
