I weight lift 6 times a week as I'm trying to build muscle. I am vegetarian but I try to limit my amount of dairy intake.

I am eating PURE Protein Bars as snacks between my regular meals. They cost about $0.90 for about 20 grams of protein. Does anyone know of any vegan alternatives with the same amount of protein at the same low cost? I'm in the US.

    perhaps consider making your own bars or high protein cookies

  • Have you met with medical professionals to determine the amount of protein you require? I can recommend Lärabars, but they do not have that quantity of protein unless you eat several of them. Commented Dec 11, 2020 at 8:33
  • Actually, allow me to correct myself. Lärabar now manufactures high-protein bars, but I have not checked to see if they are vegan. They also cost more than the PURE Protein Bars you are currently eating. Commented Dec 11, 2020 at 8:38

I really enjoy the Kirkland signature protein bars that you can get at any Costco, but those are slightly higher in price compared to the PURE protein bars, by a few cents per 20 grams of protein.

An item like this averages at $1.40/21.5g of protein. I don't know if that's a valid answer to your question because it's not exactly cheaper but it's the only thing that comes to my mind.

    the Kirkland signature protein bars contain milk, so they fail the vegan requirement
