Protein is essential. It is the base building materials for the human body, as it is responsible for brain development and muscle growth, and is a vital part of a healthy diet. The benefits of protein bars are many, and consequently, there are many options available to people looking to supplement their diet with more of these valuable macromolecular structures. Everything from shakes to powders to yogurt can and have been packed with protein and sold as dietary supplements.
The problem with the majority of these protein sources is the balance. Many of them have an imbalance of protein to the number of fats, sugars, and carbohydrates contained within. While these serve a valuable role in keeping the body healthy, the kinds found in many protein supplements are too refined, or the amounts contained far exceed the recommended daily requirements for a low-carb diet. What’s worse is many powders and shakes contain far more protein than is needed, meaning diminishing returns of protein while still getting loads of carbohydrates and sugar.
With that in mind, here is a list of 50 recipes for homemade protein bars that are high in protein but low in carbs.
