All across Australia people are switching out their usual dry muesli bars and sugar filled snack bars with protein bars.
When you’re hit with a craving during your day or after a workout, many of us reach for a protein bar, but with so many options available, how do you choose a quality protein bar that ticks all the boxes and actually tastes good?
Here at Beauty News, we have tried and tested what are considered to be some of the best protein bars on offer in Australia and after testing hundreds of bars, our team came up with our top 5 all time favorites.
Make the best decision for your health goals by choosing a delicious and nutritious snack from our top protein bar recommendations!
Number 1 on our list is the Warrior range of protein bars, and there were many reasons that Warrior won this spot over their competitors. Trying protein bar after protein bar wasn’t as fun as it sounds. Many of the bars we tried were dry and powdery with either a bland flavour or a strong chemical aftertaste. So when we came across the Warrior range or more specifically, the CRUNCH range, our team couldn’t rave about this product enough.
Warrior have developed 2 key ranges, CRUNCH and RAW. As mentioned, our personal favourite was the CRUNCH range. The CRUNCH bars taste just like a chocolate bar, with a delicious chocolate coating, gooey centre and crunchy texture.
It wasn’t just one bar from the range that tasted good, there was 7 flavours and choosing our top 3 was more difficult than you’d think because they all tasted so good. The white choc crisp was a fan favourite, as was the salted caramel and dark chocolate peanut butter.
It was honestly hard to believe these bars could actually be good for you. But that’s exactly what they are, with a massive 20g of protein in every bar and just 2g or less of sugar. It’s a totally guilt free snack that tastes sensational.
The RAW bars have the worlds lowest sugar content in a flapjack. These super nutritious bars are packed with rolled oats and like the CRUNCH range, 20g of protein and almost no sugar.
So as you can see, it’s no wonder that Warrior came in as our number one choice. Don’t just take our word for it try them for yourself and give us your feedback. We’d love to hear your thoughts on this great range.
2. True Protein
Made with 100% natural ingredients, True Protein came in 2nd on our list. Available in a range of delicious flavours like salted caramel, cookies & cream, chocolate and toasted coconut, True Protein are a great, natural on-the-go snack for any time of the day.
The natural ingredients in these bars have been combined to maximise the benefits and to create some sensational flavours. Things like coconut, dates, almonds and chia are just a few of the featured ingredients.
