    If you're looking to add a bit of protein, try adding a small jar of chicken baby food to your fruit mixture.

    Well the starch is far better than all the fatty oils that would be in the peanut butter. If you're really concerned about protein content you can get some whey protein powder at most health food stores. Another option would be to boil a chicken breast and puree it to a liquidy consistency and mix it into your fruit mixes.

    Spirulina powder is a very complete source of protein and contains many other nutrients. It can be added to baby food or other fruit mixes and the geckos don't seem to mind it even in higher doses.
