If you're on a vegan or plant based diet and eating to a specific calorie goal, one of the most important things that non-vegans would believe is that you're really going to struggle to hit that protein amount, let alone get enough protein whilst keeping your calorie restriction in place.

Have no fear, there are over 60 vegan protein bars below and we would like to prove just how easy it is to hit your protein goals and not consume too many calories and you can do this with many of the vegan protein bar options below.

Each vegan protein bar has had it's protein per 100 calories worked out and added as a column to the suggestion table below, it has then been sorted in a descending order and showcases those which have the most protein for just 100 calories of that serving.

If you're interested in just seeing what suggestions there are, then head on down the page to see the complete list of vegan protein bars sorted by their protein per 100 calories metric.

 

So How Much Vegan Protein Can You Get For 100 Calories

At the time of writing, the Primal Strips Vegan Jerky comes in top with 13.51g/100 calories, thats 13.51 grams of protein for every 100 calories of that vegan protein bar. The vegan jerky by Primal actually has only 74 calories so you don't get that amount unless you eat 1 and a quarter bars, but you do get a whole 10 grams of protein for each bar that you consume.

So, if you're off by your protein goal for the day by 10 or 20 grams of protein, one or two of these can bump your protein intake up quite considerably for very little calories.

There are actually two offerings in the database at the moment with both offering 13.51g/100cal and Primal do offer more flavors if you aren't interested in Lime or Thai Peanut.

If you're out shopping in a supermarket, keep an eye out for the following brands which all do well in terms of their protein offerings whilst keeping calories low.

  • Primal Strips
  • No Cow
  • Nugo Slim
  • Hemplete
  • Chia Charge
  • Clif Builders Bar

Followed by the Primal Strips are the No Cow brand, Nugo Slim, Hemplete, Chia Charge and Clif Builders Bars.

As you get to Clif Builders bars, you do drop in protein amount per 100 calories considerably compared to the Primal Strips.

With the Hemplete, Chia Charge and Clif bars offering between 7 and 7.5 grams of protein per 100 calories.

 

Vegan And Gluten Free Protein Bars With High Protein And Low Calories

The No Cow range which come in not far behind Primal Strips in this list of suggestions have 10 - 11 grams of protein per 100 calories and are also gluten free.

The downside to a Now Cow Protein Bar is that each bar comes in at 200 calories, so if you only have about 100 calories left but still want to get as much protein as possible, you will have to fight the urge to eat the whole bar.

By having half a bar you can still get up to 11 grams of protein and the glory of will power!
