I was wondering if anyone has any protein bar recommendations that aren't too high in sugar and carbs.

Pure protein bars. Can buy at walmart. Relatively affordable depends on where you live but price range $6-$8 for 6ct. 20 grams of protein, low carbs and low sugar.

The only bar I eat is quest. Love them and good numbers. Most are 170-200 calories and 20 grams protein. 1/2 a bar will hold me for a few hours plus they taste good, in my opinion. Vitamin shoppe carries a few flavors but I try to order mine off the internet. My favorite is peanut butter and jelly. A lot of people microwave them for 10-15 seconds for a soft, chewy cookie-like texture. I've never tried that.
Most other bars contain soy so I haven't tried them but oh yeah! comes up a lot as being good and pure protein. I have no clue about those.
Good luck finding one you like!!

i like quest, but my new favorite is the simply bar. they are a bit dry, but less ingredients, vegan and sit way lighter in my stomach.

 Supreme Protein Carb Conscious bars are good. I like the cookies and cream and the peanut butter and jelly. The 1.5 oz bars have 15 grams of protein. I order them online but Targets sells them and so does 7-11. They do have a larger size as well, I can only eat about 1/3 of the large one at a time. The Oh Yeah bars I didn't like personally. I find they are to dry and gritty for my taste.

I gotta say quest bars are my favorite as well. I order them online. They make me feel full, have 1g of sugar, carbs are 24g but most are 17-20g of fiber carbohydrates so I only count the leftover carbs. After reading labels on all the other protein bars I just can't get myself to eat anything else. Too much sugar and fat. Good luck to you. I hope you find a good bar that fits you.

I like both Quest and Pure Protein.  Quest are expensive though.  Pure protein are a little more affordable.

Oh Yeah are really good and were on my acceptable list early out.  I also like the ones from Bariatric choice but they really taste like candy bars and I have to watch myself.

I only eat the Quest bars as well. Chocolate p-nut butter is my favorite, but I haven't tried one that I wouldn't eat.
