I’m ALL about the high-protein snacks lately. I mean, I hate it when I eat a snack and then like 20 minutes later, I’m hungry again (#snackfail), so I love when I find new ones that are both tasty and satisfying. And I especially love high-protein snacks that aren’t your usual protein powder/Greek yogurt/nuts/hard-boiled eggs. Not that there’s anything wrong with these kinds of snacks. They’re some of my favorites, but I like to mix it up.
I recently had the opportunity to try some snacks from Nuts.com, and I was so impressed with the selection of high-protein, nutritious, and delicious options, I just had to share my favorites with you guys. These snacks are definitely ones that I will purchase again (and again). Speaking of which, here’s an EXTRA SPECIAL OFFER FOR CNC READERS…

I also wanted to give a quick shout-out to a couple of blog posts that I found on the Nuts.com website. They provide a lot of helpful information about why protein is important to your body/diet/workouts as well as suggestions for getting an adequate amount through various foods and snacks. Just wanted to pass them along! 🙂
And now, without further ado, here are my favorite, not your usual high-protein snacks. I hope they give you some good ideas for healthy, satisfying snacks in the future!
Raw Almond Cranberry Granola Bites (8 grams): Packed with oats, raw almonds, dried cranberries, raw sunflower seeds, raw pumpkin seeds and more, these bites are both nutritious and full of flavor. They’re perfect for anytime you crave a snack, especially on-the-go. They’re great as a dessert after dinner too!
Vegan “Cheese” Kale Chips (7 grams): Omgggggg, I love these all-natural and seriously delicious Vegan “Cheese” Kale Chips. These gluten-free raw kale chips are loaded with flavor and taste. They’re a wonderful alternative to regular chips since they’re loaded with essential nutrients and vitamins.
Dandy Blend with a scoop of collagen and a splash of cream (12 grams): One of my favorite afternoon treats! I love drinking it both hot and cold and sometimes adding a drop or two of flavored extracts (i.e. coconut, vanilla, etc.).
Sea Salt & Vinegar Broccoli Bites (7 grams): Mmm! These Sea Salt and Vinegar Broccoli Bites are tangy, savory and delicious. They’re gluten-free, vegan, and loaded with flavor and taste. They are a great alternative to starchy, processed snacks, and they are packed with essential nutrients and vitamins.
Vegetarian Protein Mix (10 grams): My go-to salty snack lately! Whether you’re hiking, biking or hitting the gym, be sure to grab this snack before you head out. Crunchy and delicious, it’s loaded with roasted golden chickpeas, salted fava beans, unsalted edamame, unsalted dry roasted cashews, and salted soybeans. It’s great as post-workout snack or just as a healthy pick-me-up.
BBQ Peanuts (7 grams): I can’t get enough of these BBQ peanuts! With 7 grams of protein in each serving, they’re loaded with mouthwatering BBQ flavor. They’re perfectly roasted and seasoned with a smokey barbecue seasoning. In addition protein, each serving also contains 3 grams of fiber.
