Keto Friendly Snacks
We're going to start with some simple keto snacks that you can keep on hand and a few keto snack ideas and recipes, that are simple to make.
Cheese - Cheese is one of the most consumed foods on the keto diet and it's an easy keto snack idea. You can buy blocks of cheese and cut them into cubes, or buy cheese that's already in servings - string cheese and baby bells are two of our favorites. Tillamook sells individually wrapped one ounce cheese rectangles, for a quick grab and go keto snack.
Jerky - While many manufacturers use sugar to help flavor jerky, there are plenty that don't. There are quite a few keto friendly snacks on the market, and sugar free jerky is one of them. Look for sugar-free, paleo, and/or keto on the packaging. Always check labels to make sure that no sugar was added.
Nuts and Seed - Nuts and seeds are high in healthy fats and protein and they make for some of the best keto snacks. We recommend measuring out a serving, as it's easy to chomp away on nuts and seeds until you're full.
Deli Meats - We're not the biggest fan of eating deli meats for keto snacks, but it's an easy option that is high in protein. Wrap some deli meat around an avocado slice, or spread on some cream cheese to get more fat in.
Celery - Celery is a low carb, low calorie keto snack and you can add your fats with nut butters, seed butter, or cream cheese. We've dipped celery in keto queso on occasion. We've also used celery as a dipper in keto buffalo chicken dip.
Keto Chips - There are a few different keto chips on the market, but we like making our chips at home. These keto tortilla chips are a reader favorite.
Pork Rinds - There are so many flavors of pork rinds! You need to be careful though, a few of the flavors have added sugar. Pork rinds are a super low carb or zero carb keto snack, and you get that satisfying crunch that people often crave when snacking.
Keto Trail Mix - Similar to nuts, but with some extra fun stuff, you can make keto train mix for your keto snack. Mix any nuts and seeds, and throw in some sugar free chocolate chips for an easy keto trail mix.
Nut Butters - Nut butters make easy keto snacks and they are satisfying and filling. Make sure you buy a no sugar added nut butter, or make the nut butter from scratch at home.
Pickles - If you're looking for something salty, with a little bit of a crunch, pickles are a great option. They can help with keto flu, as well. We love wrapping a piece of turkey around a pickle for a quick keto snack.
Avocado - High in fat and super filling, avocado makes a great keto snack. We'll enjoy it as-is, mixed with some tuna, or we'll mix up some easy guacamole.
Hard Boiled Eggs - Hard boiled eggs make a great high protein snack. Although they don't have much fat, they will keep you full. You can also enjoy keto deviled eggs.
