Healthy snacks are one of the keys to diet success. Snacking can keep you full, balance blood sugar levels, provide energy between meals, and even boost overall nutrient intake. However, what you select to eat as your daily snack and the quantity you eat during each snacking session can make all the difference to your overall health.
We tracked down our favorite eats, so all you have to do is click, buy, and wait for the delivery.
These Are Our Favorite Healthy Snacks on Amazon:
1. Go Raw Sprouted Flax Snax
Raw flax crackers, made from simple ingredients such as flax seeds and spices, are naturally gluten-free and rich in omega-3s. Dana James, nutritionist and founder of Food Coach NYC, is a big fan of the snack and suggests topping them off with some sliced avocado. It’s a great snack that makes you feel like you are eating junk food because of the taste, but you are eating a healthy filling snack. We will definitely order more!
2. Siete Grain Free Tortilla Chips
We served these Siete Grain Free Tortilla Chips at a party and nobody knew they were grain-free. That’s how good they are. We recommend the three-bag sampler because you won’t be able to pick a favorite flavor. Pro tip: dip the lime flavor in guacamole and live your best healthy life.
3. Matt’s Munchies
Think of this as a grown-up Fruit Roll-Up made solely of fruit puree and added vitamin C for freshness.
Some of the varieties have spices or coconut shavings for added texture and flavor, but none of the add-ins raise any nutritional red flags. Pair a package with a small handful of almonds or walnuts to add some protein and additional fiber to your snack-time lineup.
4. Rhythm Superfoods Kale Chips
Sure, those barbecue-spice-dusted potato chips may satisfy your salt cravings, but snacking always feels better when it’s guilt-free. These crunchy kale chips have 3 grams of fiber per serving and 5 grams of filling protein. It doesn’t get much better than that.
5. Saffron Road Organic Crunchy Chickpeas
These dried chickpeas are downright addictive. Luckily for you, they are low in calories and sugar and loaded with fiber and protein. Keep some stashed in your glove box so you’re prepared with a clean, healthy snack whenever hunger strikes.
6. Health Warrior Chia Bars
“Health Warrior Chia Bars make for a great small grab-and-go snack,” says registered dietitian Isabel Smith. “They have about 100 calories each, in addition to being low in sugar and high in soluble fiber, which helps you feel fuller for longer by slowing digestion and keeping blood sugar in check.”
7. Hippeas Organic Chickpea Puffs, Vegan White Cheddar
We all love cheese puffs, but we don’t indulge in them every day — until now. These Hippeas Organic Chickpea Puffs, Vegan White Cheddar are vegan, gluten-free, and seriously addictive.
GOOD FOR THE EARTH – Did you know Chickpea plants naturally release nitrogen back into the earth as they grow? They’re good for the planet, simply by being themselves.
8. CandyOut Vegetable Chips
Two words: So. Good. While eating something made solely of dehydrated veggies (such as sweet potato and taro) and a bunch of spices may not seem tastier than a bag of Lay’s, CandyOut dazzles us with their culinary creation. Even if you were to polish off half the bag in one sitting, you’d only take in 190 calories.
9. Quinn Popcorn
Next time you’re cozying in for a night of “Netflix and chill”, pop open a box of Quinn Popcorn. It’s one of the only microwavable popcorns that’s free of chemicals. Better yet, it comes in yummy flavors like Butter & Sea Salt and Parmesan & Rosemary.
10. ChocZero’s Keto Bark
I mean, you’re welcome. For all those on the keto diet or just trying to indulge in a sweet treat without extra added sugars, ChocZero’s Keto Bark will change your life. It’s only sweetened with monk fruit and comes in three flavors, but the chocolate hazelnut is kind of like a healthy Nutella.
11. Quest Nutrition Protein Chips
Quest’s delicious, protein-filled chips—which come in flavors like cheddar and sour cream—will tingle your taste buds without blowing your diet. One individual snack bag can even serve as a savory on-the-go replacement for a post-workout protein shake. Before you laugh us off, you should know we have two big reasons to back up our claim: The salt can help replace electrolytes lost after a sweaty workout, and one bag serves up as much protein as a 2.5-ounce chicken breast. Made from dried potatoes, a blend of milk protein and whey protein isolate, and a generous amount of seasonings, this crunchy snack is sure to put your sad bag of Lay’s to shame.
12. Kashi Organic Sweet Potato Sunshine Cereal
Made with just eight whole-food ingredients, this tasty, low-sugar cereal is one you can feel good about noshing on. Measure out a cup, toss it in a baggie, and bust it out next time your stomach starts to growl between meals.
13. Hail Merry Dark Chocolate Bites
A “guilt-free chocolate treat” is basically the stuff of marketing mythology, but these cute little snacks come as close as possible to that concept. The rich, two-bite treats are made with whole food ingredients like cocoa and coconut oil. These snack bites may become your new chocolatey addiction, and we’re totally not judging!
14. Tapaz 2 Go, Lentil Crackers and Classic Hummus
This satiating, flavorful duo of fiber-rich hummus and lentil crisps serves up as much protein as an egg and provides a crunchy texture reminiscent of a “normal” cracker that’ll make even Triscuit lovers jealous.
15. Betty Lou’s PB&J Bar
Is there anything more nostalgic than a PB&J sandwich? Now you can eat one whenever you want. Betty Lou’s PB&J Bar ($18 for 12) is gluten-free, vegan, and non-GMO. Also, it’s so good.
