Our Top 10 Picks Of Plantbased Protein Bars


If you’re a plantbased eater like us, then you’re probably quite familiar with the question, “how do you get your protein?” In fact, you may hear this question so often that even thinking about it makes you roll your eyes. But the truth is, protein is an important part of everyone’s diet. Your body uses proteins to build and repair muscles, keep your bones healthy and strong, and make hormones among other essential enzymes. And so, no matter what diet you follow, it’s important to have an idea of where your protein comes from – especially if you live an active lifestyle. 

The simple fact is, despite popular belief that protein only comes from eating meat and other animal-derived foods, plants actually contain more protein than you might think. It is entirely possible to live a plantbased lifestyle while still giving your body the optimal amount of protein-rich foods. One way to ensure that you’re eating enough protein on a plantbased diet is by snacking on plantbased protein bars. Yep, fully plantbased, wholesome, and protein-packed bars not only exist, but are absolutely delicious! And today, we’re going to let you in on some of our favorites. 

First, let’s get one thing squared away. We’re not just talking about vegan plantbased bars. Although all of the bars listed below are vegan-friendly, they are also fully plantbased. If you want to read more in depth about the difference between vegan and plantbased, head to this blog post – but simply put, not all vegan foods are plantbased. A truly plantbased food comes directly from plants or ingredients found naturally on the earth, and does not contain artificial ingredients, chemicals, or flavors. There are tons of vegan protein bars on the market, and we’re certainly not saying you have to stay away from them. But, like with all of our foods, we prefer our bars to be made with wholesome, truly plantbased ingredients. If you do too, you’ve come to the right place!
