Of course.

Take a grassfed bison rib eye steak. Cook it medium rare in Kerrygold. Slice it up in bar shape. Insert it into a bar wrapper. Seal the wrapper. Enjoy. :)

Sorry, protein bars count as crap-in-a-bag. Eat real food please.

Edit: fine, I'll give you a non-snarky answer. If you must, get some quality beef jerky, sticks, or better yet pemmican. You can make these yourself too as they are very expensive, if you have a dehydrator, or oven that you can set the temperature on very low.

For jerky, get very lean cuts of beef, stuff like eye round eye. Freeze it half way (or thaw it half way), then slice it very thin into strips. Place them in a pyrex or other glass container with layers of seasoning. I used mesquite seasoning. Leave it in the fridge for 24 hours so the seasoning acts like a dry rub.

Then, you can place it in a dehydrator the next day. If you don't have one, get some metal pans meant for BBQing veggies - they typically have holes in them. Place the meat in a single layer in the pans in the oven. If your oven has a convention switch, turn it on. Set the temperature to as low as it will go, 160F is best. If your oven doesn't go low enough, see if it will still work with the door partially open. Bake the meat for ~6 hours. It should be crispy or almost crispy.

Unlike store bought jerky, the oven version won't keep for too long unless you make it with sugar.

Pemmican works the same way, but you'd then put the meat slices in a food processor to turn it into fine grains, almost like dust, and you'd melt tallow over it and then mix it up. (Look up an actual recipe as this is off the top of my head.)
