Best Keto Friendly Protein Bars
If you’re training regularly or you’re into fitness you’ve definitely had a conversation about protein supplementation. Protein shakes, bars and powders are so widely spread so the question posed before us is can you eat protein bars when on keto?
The short answer is yes you can.
Having in mind keto diet, it’s usually a low carb and high fat diet while the protein consumption varies mostly because of the different needs of people’s bodies. If you’re exercising a lot especially with weights, you’ll definitely need more protein to build and repair muscle tissue. But if you’re more of a sedentary person and you overeat food high on protein your body will convert the protein to glucose because it’s not needed so it turns out that it’s almost the same as eating a lot of carbs.
So before you start planning on which protein bar you’ll need try to measure the daily protein intake you need to consume based on how active you are.
It’s not a big worry though because you’d have to go very much overboard when supplementing protein for it to be relevant when turning into glucose.
So let’s move on to our rundown of keto friendly protein bars, best keto friendly protein bars.
The most famous brand out there that makes keto friendly protein bars is definitely Quest. The reason these bars are in fact keto friendly is that they don’t utilize any added sugar. They use erythritol to sweeten their product.
The amount of net carbs you get with this bar are different for each flavor of the bars but in general they don’t contain any more then 5g net carbs per bar. The flavors we’d recommend are Strawberry Cheesecake and Cinnamon Roll.
The only downside we’d say is that they are not very high on fat which makes it a bit harder to reach the high-fat daily macros for keto.

Every time we see the word keto in an item we get the goose bumps. The Zenwise Keto-Crave bars actually have great taste and much higher quantity of fat then the other items on this rundown.
