What are protein bars?
So, protein bars as their name suggests are meal bars that have high protein content. It was developed mainly to target people who needed a convenient way of consuming protein and required little to no preparation.
There are different meal bars that are intended to supplement certain macros. Energy bars, for example, have high carb content. Meal replacement bars are more nutrient-dense. Although these other variants may contain protein, the protein bar still has a significantly higher protein content as it’s mainly used for muscle building.
How do you make keto protein bars?
Since the keto diet requires 70% fats, 25% protein, and 5% carbohydrates, keto protein bar recipes often are made with these key ingredients:
- coconut flour
- almond flour
- cream cheese
- whey protein powder
- ground sunflower seeds
- a variety of low carb nuts
Keto protein bars can come in baked, chilled, and are even compliant with several other diets like: dairy-free diet, gluten-free diet, and the vegan diet.
