10 Best Pumpkin Protein Bars
1. Clif Bar – Spiced Pumpkin Pie
The love for these seasonal Clif bar’s is strong! Clif bar has been releasing the seasonal spiced pumpkin pie flavor for years now and it tends to sell out. So if you’re feeling spicy, you might need to go ahead and grab you some of these!
Just like their other flavors, Clif bars are made to give you the energy you need to get through your fun list of activities. These bars contain a fair amount of sugar, so they make for quick energy sources on a tough bike ride, more so than for a meal replacement or protein based snack.
2. RXBAR – Pumpkin Spice
Trying to cut back on your holiday sweets this year but still craving that pumpkin pie goodness? RXBAR’s limited edition Pumpkin Spice flavor is pretty darn good.
Keeping with their usual method of simple ingredients, RXBAR added pumpkin and a few seasonal spices to create this classic taste. Packed with 12g of protein, this bar is ready to help your taste buds out this holiday season. And let’s be honest, there aren’t going to be many products on this list with real pumpkin in them, just sayin’.
3. 1st Phorm – Pumpkin Spice Crunch Level-1 Bar
1st Phorm’s Pumpkin Spice Crunch bar is 6 layers of pure pumpkin sweetness. These are meant to be full meal replacement bars, so if you just want a quick, sweet fix, consider cutting a bar up into small pieces. Reviewers rave about the taste but warn that the pumpkin protein bars are sweet. But if you’re a fan of pumpkin, think of eating a whole bar for a meal as if you skipped thanksgiving dinner and went straight to dessert. Pure bliss.
4. Eat Me Guilt Free – Pumpkin Spice Blondie
Eat Me Guilt Free is a woman owned business looking to be the tasty solution for those aiming for a healthier lifestyle. So you don’t feel like you have to choose between pie or more thanksgiving sides, Eat Me Guilt Free created a Pumpkin Spice Blondie. Each Pumpkin Spice blondie has 14g of protein and 9g net carbs, giving you a nice pumpkin protein bar alternative.
5. No Cow – Pumpkin Pie
These No Cow protein bars are dairy free and made with plant protein. If the lactose from whey protein tends to give your stomach some trouble, try out these pumpkin protein bars. No Cow protein bars are made with low sugar and carbs, while still giving you a burst of protein from its brown rice and pea protein source. You’ll find little crispy pieces within each fudgy bite that is sure to not disappoint!
6. Think! Protein+ 150 Calorie Bar, Pumpkin Spice Latte

Well think! is here to help give you a solution that isn’t so high in sugar. Their Pumpkin Spice Latte flavored protein bar is ready to give you your PSL fix and hopefully fill you up too!
7. Quest Nutrition – Pumpkin Pie
Get excited! Reviewers are saying these Quest Pumpkin Pie protein bars are super sweet and without the weird after taste you can get with other protein bars. Be warned though. When you open up one of these pumpkin protein bars, the yellow orange color is a little strange. But if you’re into super sweet things and trying not to eat a whole pie, grab one of these Quest bars. They can help satiate that hungry and that sweet tooth!
8. One Bars – Pumpkin Pie
One bar lovers are pumped that the Pumpkin Pie flavor is back. With 20g of protein and only 1g of sugar, it certainly has our attention. Never tried a One bar? Well now may be the perfect time because many reviewers say once you get hooked, you never look back. Some also recommend heating this up for just 4-5 seconds to soften it up like a true slice of pumpkin pie.
9. Lenny & Larry’s The Complete Cookie – Pumpkin Spice
Grocery stores are the worst. Sometimes you are just walking into the the store for one thing, minding your own business and then BAM. They throw an aisle of seasonal treats in your face, the second you walk through the sliding doors. Because of this, I can say I’ve had this seasonal protein cookie already and it is so good!
Lenny & Larry’s cookies are also so soft and sweet but this one gets the pumpkin spice flavor just right. I will say they have the tiniest bit of a bad after taste but nothing that really bothers me. I ate the whole thing and would absolutely go back and buy another!
10. Atlas Protein Bar – Pumpkin Spice
Atlas protein bars do things a little bit different. These protein bars supply you with fuel for your mind and body by including ashwagandha powder inside each bar. Never heard of ashwagandha? It’s a native herb in India that’s been used for thousands of years. Some say it helps with focus and better sleep but you can read more about its benefits on our post.
But ashwagandha aside, these bars are delicious and actually include pumpkin in their list of ingredients. Curious and wanting to give them a try? Get you a pack of them on Amazon!
Well, if you haven’t thought that you need one of these protein bars by now, I’m guessing you aren’t a true pumpkin protein bar fan. Kidding! But as you can see from the list, there is a large variety of options out there this year to get you through the fall season. If you find a favorite, let us know!
