Texans' Favorite Protein Bars

Hey there, fellow Texans! If you're like me, always on the go and in need of a quick, healthy snack, protein bars are probably a staple in your pantry. With so many options out there, it can be tough to figure out which ones are worth your time (and money). Luckily, I surveyed my audience on Instagram Stories to gather a list of our favorite protein bars. Whether you’re looking for something local or just the best of the best, I’ve got you covered.

The Best Protein Bars According to Texans

Anabar: A Texas Treasure

Shop Anabar: HEB | Amazon

Anabar Protein Bar White Chocolate Fruity Cereal Crunch at HEB Grocery Stores in Texas

First up, let’s talk about Anabar. This gem is a Texas company based out of Stafford, TX. These bars are not only packed with protein but also full of flavor. It's always great to support local businesses, especially when they make something this delicious. Anabar is perfect for those moments when you need a tasty, protein-packed snack on the go.

Barebells: The Fan Favorite

Shop Barebells: HEB | Walmart | Amazon

Barebells Protein Bars Cookies & Cream and Caramel Cashew at HEB Grocery Stores in Texas

If there's one protein bar that seems to top everyone’s list, it's Barebells. These bars are creamy, satisfying, and come in a variety of yummy flavors. It’s no wonder they’re a number one pick.

They just sent me a few new flavors to check out as well and I liked both quite a bit. Banana Caramel has a rich caramel filling, my husband can't put them down and even though I'm not typically a huge fan of birthday cake-flavored treats, this one also hits the spot. Soft on the inside, with little crunchies on the outside.

Power Crunch: The Crunchy Choice

Shop Power Crunch: HEB | Walmart | Amazon

Power Crunch Peanut Butter Fudge Protein Energy Bar at HEB Grocery Stores in Texas

If you prefer a bit of crunch in your snack, Power Crunch bars are where it’s at. These wafer-like bars are light but pack a solid protein punch. They’re great for a quick pick-me-up that doesn’t feel too heavy. Plus, the variety of flavors means there’s something for everyone.

Built Puff Bars: The Marshmallow Marvel

Shop Built: Walmart | Amazon

Built Puff Brownie Batter Protein Bar

Built Puff Bars are one of those brands you won’t find at HEB, but I'm told they’re worth seeking out. These bars have a marshmallow texture that sets them apart from other protein bars. Soft and airy, they taste more like a dessert.

Misfits: Plant-Based Perfection

Shop Misfits: Amazon

Mistfits Cookie Butter Plant-Based Protein bar

For my plant-based friends, Misfits bars are a fantastic option. These bars are vegan, but you might never guess it from the taste. They pack in a good amount of protein without any animal products. Misfits prove that plant-based doesn’t mean compromising on flavor.

Aloha Bars: Clean and Delicious

Shop Aloha: HEB | Walmart | Amazon

Aloha Protein Bar at HEB Grocery Stores in Texas

Aloha Bars are all about keeping it clean and simple. These bars are made with high-quality, plant-based, organic ingredients, and they taste amazing. They’re perfect for anyone looking for a healthy, no-nonsense protein bar.

Unite Churro: A Taste of Tradition

Shop Unite: HEB 

Unite Mexican Hot Chocolate and Churro Protein Bars at HEB Grocery Stores in Texas

If you’re craving something with a bit of a twist, Unite Churro bars are a fantastic choice. They capture the delicious flavor of churros in a protein bar format. Plus, it's a woman-owned business.

Nicks: Swedish Bars

Shop N!cks: HEB | Walmart | Amazon

Nick's Swedish Protein Bars Mint Chocolate and Triple Chokolad at HEB Grocery Stores in Texas

Lastly, we have Nicks. These bars are a Swedish import that I happen to love. Soft but with crunchies on the inside - a winning combo if you ask me! I love the Triple Choklad flavor.

Drumroll Protein Donuts: A Sweet Spin on Protein

Shop Drumroll: HEB

Drumroll Protein Donuts Vanilla Flavor at HEB Grocery Stores in Texas

Another Texas brand making waves is Drumroll Protein Donuts. You can find these delightful treats in the Healthy Living Fridges at HEB. While I personally love the vanilla flavor, it seems like chocolate is the more popular choice. These donuts are a fantastic option for when you want to enjoy a sweet treat while still getting a good dose of protein.

Happy healthy snacking, y'all!
