These chilled peanut butter cups are more than just a treat, they contain seven to eight grams of protein per pack. Ingredients include organic whole foods like kale, flaxseed, and seaweed, but you would never tell it by its taste. They’re a sweet – but not too sweet – treat that will help you recover from your toughest workouts, both for your body and mind. In any case, don’t skip the minty taste of dark chocolate.

They are cooked with onions, garlic, mild green chilies, and other condiments for rich homemade flavor no matter how you serve them.

Zero sugar? Who cares – we can’t tell. Our mouth is fixated on the hearty and tender beef from the USA. For the meat eaters out there, this high protein snack will take you through tough adventures and then you will crave it even more. The zesty taste of black pepper is our favorite.

Energy bars are our favorite fuel for long days in the mountains, but not all are created equal. The Swedish company Moonvalley, founded by three professional athletes, uses plant-based organic ingredients and an ideal balance between carbohydrates, fat and protein. Did we mention that these bars are soft and tasty? We love the earthy-spicy combination of red beet and orange flavors.

If you’re not a gel fanatic, you’ve never tried Spring Energy. The canaberry flavor is made from real foods like basmati rice, bananas, strawberries, maple syrup, and coconut water. So it goes down slightly, tastes like a smoothie, and provides lasting energy without additives like maltodextrin rising and breaking down.
