    Protein Bars

    I'm looking for soft protein bars/snacks. All of the ones I've ever had have been either chewy or crunchy and I'm on a TMJ diet of soft food only. Thanks!

    a piece of chicken is pretty soft. so is ground beef you can shape into a bar before cooking if you'd like?

    I have been dealing with TMJ issues as well. I would say your best bet is to heat a quest bar in the microwave for about 10-12 seconds to soften it up. One bars are pretty soft but the chewiness can cause issues and those don't take being microwaved very well since the outside is like a chocolate coating like a candy bar.

    Just an aside, I started doing the exercises below for the last three weeks and the progress I have seen is incredible. I went from a year and a half in near constant pain and not able to eat hardly anything to feeling almost back to normal. The key I found is to just keep doing the exercises every single day. The first week or two might be rough but it does get better and is the only thing that I have found to actually work (and that includes visits to doctors, dentists, and a TMJ specialist).

    Thanks! I'll try heating a quest bar and see if that works. And I'll check out the exercises also!

    Kirkland protein bars (from Costco) are really soft, especially the peanut butter ones. Barely hold their shape at room temperature, and tasty IMHO.

    They get a little harder the older they get. I like to pop these into a microwave as well as the Quest bars. The chocolate ones are like warm fudge.

    Quest bars are delicious microwaved. I tend to do mine for 30 seconds, but it depends on the power of your microwave. Then I put a little dollop of icecream on top.

    I also find you can keep Quest bars long after their expiry date because even if they go a little hard, the microwave softens them up again.
