5 High Protein Snacks That Are Quick And Easy To Make
Clients often struggle with pulling together healthy snacks, so I've put together a list of 5 High Protein Snacks That Are Quick And Easy To Make.
Protein has been well established as the macronutrient that will keep you fuller for longer. So by including snacks that are high in protein, it is easier to bridge the gap between main meals and stay satisfied throughout the day.
Here are 5 of my favourite go to high protein snacks which anyone can pull together in minutes!
# 1 - Greek Yoghurt
My favourite brand, which I also recommend to my clients is Fage. The 0% Fat version has the best macronutrient breakdown of all the Greek Yoghurts I have looked at and packs 9g of protein per 100g portion!
The taste is excellent and the firm texture works really well.
Options: Add forest fruits, nuts and a drizzle of honey to make this into a great tasting snack which will feel like a cheat but is extremely healthy.
Tip: work in some vanilla whey protein powder to boost the protein value even further!
#2 - Homemade Protein Bars
By making your own protein bars you get to control what ingredients go into them.
Most shop bought bars are usually no better than confectionary!
If you want to make progress, make a batch of these and put them in the fridge or freezer and use when you want a decent healthy snack.
#3 - Protein Pancakes
I tend to be 'lazy' with these and use MyProtein's excellent protein pancake mix. It takes the hassle out of making them and qualifies them as a quick snack.
Options: Add Greek Yoghurt, forest fruits and banana to add some carbs to this High Protein Snack.
#4 - Protein Fluff!
It may look like a Martian's lunch but Protein Fluff is superb!
It's is light and fluffy and ever so filling!
With so few calories it makes a perfect snack for evenings when you know you are going to be hungry before bed.

#5 - Cottage Cheese
Now I know that Cottage Cheese isn't to everybody's taste... However, it is a great High Protein Snack.
Tip #1 : If you aren't fully converted to the taste, try adding a teaspoon of Cinnamon to the pot.
Tip #2 : If Cinnamon isn't doing it for you, then use a teaspoon of low sugar jam to add to sweetness and counter act the bitterness of the cheese.
Tip #3 : Mix a scoop of vanilla whey protein powder into the cheese to make an awesome protein packed rice pudding!
So, there you have a nice compact list of 5 High Protein Snacks That Are Quick And Easy To Make. Anyone can pull these together in minutes!
There really is no excuse to be picking up poor choices when these can be readily available.
