Burt’s Bees Daily Protein Chocolate

Yes, this is the same company that makes your favorite lip treatment. But do not be fooled—Burt’s knows its stuff when it comes to plant-based protein powder. One heaping scoop gives you 15 grams of plant based protein and 2 servings of fruits and vegetables, plus the chocolaty flavor is pleasantly noticeable but not overwhelming or chalky. Note: pairs well with your favorite green smoothie recipe!

Clif Bar Nut Butter Filled Energy Bar Chocolate Hazelnut Butter

You know how you can’t keep a jar of Nutella in the house? Well, this new flavor from Clif bakes that goodness right into the middle of its traditional chewy-yet-crispy bar. The hidden surprise definitely brings a new level of excitement to an energy bar. And one bar equals one 230-calorie serving.

I Heart Keenwah Chocolate Puffs

Laced with Himalayan pink salt, these dark chocolate morsels are ideal for satiating a craving for salty and sweet. Since they are crunchy with a burst of protein-laden quinoa, it’s not really fair to call them dessert—we would eat them at any time.
