If you are a fan of protein bars, but don’t want the bars loaded with sugar and ingredients, you can make your own. Instead of bars, it is easier to combine the ingredients and make oat balls. You can grab one or two for a snack when heading out the door, pack it for lunch, or enjoy it at home. Protein balls come in different varieties with tons of recipes, but the basic recipe uses oats, chocolate chips, peanut butter, and ingredients like seeds.
Oatmeal with Toppings
If you have time to make a bowl of oatmeal, this can be a hearty and filling snack, that also provides you with lots of fiber and protein. A single serving of oats is typically around 100 calories, so this is a light snack, even with your toppings. You can add anything you like to it, such as banana and peanut butter, almond butter, chocolate chips or cacao nibs, chia seeds, granola, and so much more. There are an endless number of possibilities.
Yogurt and Berries or Granola
For a quicker snack that you can enjoy at home or on the go, grab a serving of yogurt and top it with berries. You can also use granola on top to make it a little more filling with an extra boost of nutrients. This is a really quick snack to make when you have Greek yogurt and berries at home. Some other toppings that work great include nut butter, honey, and granola.
