Good Hemp’s Favourite High Protein Vegan Snacks
Hungry? Vegan? Looking for a high protein snack? You’ve come to the right place.
If your active lifestyle means you’re on the go a lot, you don’t always have time to prepare an elaborate meal. We get it. That’s why it’s good to always have a snack on hand in case your energy levels run low – and we’re not talking about the addictive processed treats from our childhood here.
If you need a little help to keep going between your afternoon run and the end of your workday, high protein snacks are a perfect part of your routine. These are perfect as it takes longer for your body to digest protein than carbs, leaving you feeling all the more full and satisfied as you go about your day.
Healthy High Protein Snacks We Love
Our favourite afternoon snacks are all made using our vegan protein powders, which count as ‘full proteins’, containing all the essential amino acids you need in a healthy human diet. Quick to whip up and easy to make when you’re on a time crunch, these recipes are bound to leave your mouth watering time after time.
1. Hemp protein bars with cacao and peanut
The king of protein related snacks has got to be the protein bar — but we’re not about to promote just any old protein bar recipe. These choco-peanut hemp protein bars are one of the healthiest choices for an afternoon snack, and can be thrown together in a jiffy. We’re not kidding about that — the entire recipe takes just three simple steps!
By snacking on these bars, you’re getting a healthy dose of protein, as well as multiple vitamins and minerals. Each bar contains just over 200 calories, and 8.9g of protein if you use our 46% protein powder.
2. Hemp protein brownies
Who doesn’t love a freshly baked brownie? Our favourite hemp protein brownie recipe is a delicious and healthy way to add protein to your diet. It’s also vegan, in case you were wondering – so good for you and good for the planet!
You’ll find oodles of pleasure in each bite, and it’s a particularly popular choice if you’re prone to sweet cravings during the day. Stock up on our 46% or 75% protein powders if you think you’ll be making a few batches for friends and family. These powders make the snack full of fibre and omega-3 friendly, unlike many of their processed counterparts.
3. Dark chocolate, macadamia and hemp protein bread
One snack that’s guaranteed to help you feel full between meals is a slice of this dark chocolate, macadamia and hemp protein bread that was baked for us by Luce Hosier (@whatluceeats). It goes great with a bit of icing too, if you have a sweet tooth. Make this recipe with any of Good Hemp’s vegan protein powders, each of which will give you a healthy dose of protein without any animal products involved.
Good Hemp’s Vegan Protein Powders
As you can probably tell by now, getting the most out of any high protein snack requires using a protein powder that will tick all the boxes in terms of nutritional value. With Good Hemp’s vegan protein powders range, you’re always getting raw, natural hemp protein with none of the nasty additives that other proteins use.
Below are some more details about each of our protein powders and how you can use them, as well as how much protein you can expect per serving.
46% Pure Hemp Protein Powder
Our 46% protein powder is also made of 100% natural raw hemp, but is more of an all rounder, as it contains a higher content of omega 3 and fibre than its product siblings. This makes it ideal for incorporating into the recipes that you know and love. Earlier we showed you how you can use it for baking, and we can recommend it in different smoothie recipes as well. It offers an instant nutrient boost, alongside a healthy 15g of protein per 30g serving of powder.
75% Pure Hemp Protein Powder
The 75% protein powder packs slightly more of a protein punch, offering a healthy 22g of protein per 30g serving of powder. This makes it the perfect companion for anybody on a muscle building mission with strict daily protein intake goals. This is the powder we use the most when baking pancakes or making porridge. It’s also a great source of omega 3, and can be used to dial up the amount of protein in your daily smoothie too.
85% Pure Hemp Protein Powder
If all you’re after is lots of protein, this powder is the one for you. Our 85% protein powder offers over 25g of protein per 30g serving. Better yet, it’s free of all 14 major allergens, and can be used in any recipe that involves blending, mixing or stirring. If you’re required to manage your daily intake of protein for health reasons, this powder can help you to stick to the plan.
A New Outlook on Snacking
As our favourite high protein snack recipes have illustrated, there’s a wealth of options out there for a healthy nibble to keep you going throughout the day!
But don’t let us stop you at the three recipes we mentioned today. If you’re confident in the kitchen and you’re feeling adventurous, get out there and try some of our additional protein powder-rich recipes that will give your tastebuds something else to write home about.
