Protein Bars: The Breakdown

Some protein and granola bars are nutritionally identical to candy bars. Here's what to look for in a protein bar to really get the nutrients you need.

Let’s be honest, the world of protein bars and snack bars is so overwhelming and complicated. You walk through the snack bar aisle in the grocery store and there’s just shelves and shelves of what companies claim to be nutritious, healthy, and guilt-free options. While I’m not trying to bash protein bars and snack bars, most of the time they’re none of those things.

A majority of protein and snack bars are basically just candy bars disguised as “healthy” options. In this post I’m going to break down one of my all-time favorite granola bars the Quaker Chewy Granola Bars in Chocolate Chip to one of my most favorite candy bars. It’s honestly shocking how similar the two nutrition labels are. Then I’m going to go into all of my favorite protein bars at the moment. I typically eat one a day so I have a whole list of favorites!
