3 High Fiber Protein Packed Snacks

Fiber can be tricky to get enough of. It’s mostly found in vegetables that aren’t too tasty if eaten by themselves. 


We think fiber can -- and should -- be fun. Try these recipes to sneak some fiber into your diet next time you want a healthy treat.

Grabanzos Peanut Butter and Banana Parfait

grabanzos peanut butter parfait


Recipe (makes 2 servings):

For peanut butter chia yogurt

70 mL (1/4 c.) oat milk

150 g (1/2 c.) Greek yogurt (I used 2% fat)

20 g (5 tsp.) chia seeds

15 g (2 tbsp.) peanut butter powder

27 g (1 tbsp.) honey

dash of salt

dash of vanilla extract


For toppings

1 banana, sliced into rounds

8 dark chocolate Grabanzos, crushed


Instructions:

Mix ingredients for the peanut butter chia yogurt in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 15 min (this allows the chia to absorb water and gel!)


Slice the banana and crush the Grabanzos. Serve layered for a traditional parfait look or add toppings on top of the yogurt in a bowl!


Notes:

If you’d like, you can reduce sugar by subbing honey with your favorite low or no Calorie sweetener! For a more indulgent experience, you can sub the peanut butter powder for peanut butter.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Bars

Grabanzos peanut butter protein bars

Recipe (makes 12 bars):

Recipe adapted from Chew Out Loud

250 g (1 c.) chunky peanut butter

160 g (1 3/4 c.) rolled oats

142 g (1 1/4 c.) chocolate whey protein

120 mL (1/2 c.) oat milk

38 g (2 tbsp.) honey

30 g oat fiber


Instructions:

In a saucepan on low heat, heat and combine peanut butter, oat milk, and honey until combined. Add protein powder, rolled oats, and oat fiber.


Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper or lightly grease to prevent sticking. Scoop mixture into the pan and press until evenly distributed. Cool and cut into rows of 4x3 to create 12 bars.


For extra indulgence, melt and drizzle chocolate over the top! Bars stay fresh longer when refrigerated (~1 week).


Notes:

Chocolate whey protein and oat milk can be subbed for your preferred protein powder or milk. If you prefer a firmer bar, add a little extra rolled oats! Bars can be made sweeter with extra honey to taste.

Grabanzos ice cream sandwich

Grabanzos ice cream sandwich

Recipe (makes 1 serving):

1 peanut butter chocolate protein bar

70 g (scant 2/3 c.) vanilla Halo Top ice cream

5 Grabanzos (milk or dark chocolate)


Instructions:

Take a protein bar and roll/press it into desired thickness (about 6 mm or ¼ inch). Use a drinking glass or other circular edge to cut out 2 circles from the protein bar.


In a bowl, mix ice cream and Grabanzos. Sandwich the mixture between the protein bar slices and place sandwich in the freezer to firm up.


Sandwiches can be prepared in advance or enjoyed in about 30 min.


Notes:

Although Halo Top is great for limiting calories and increasing protein, any ice cream can be used. Also, it’s fun to try out a bunch of different flavors, the combinations are almost endless!
