1. Better for you than candy

Quest bars have at least 20 grams of protein and only two to seven grams net carbs. They are high in fiber and contain no added sugars or gluten. The bars contain natural sweeteners, milk and whey proteins, and plant-based prebiotic fiber. The ingredients contain no fillers or weird chemicals. That may be why the bars have no strange under-taste.

    Quest bars come in 15 flavours. I tried the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavour, which is very sweet and candy-like, but has only 219 calories per bar. I found the bars filling and perfect for breakfast with a little fruit. The website has additional information and recipes.
