We’ve seen it before…
…that moment when we’ve had one too many salads, baby carrots… and eggs cooked every which way. Then it happens:
“What snacks can I eat on Keto?”
That’s why today we’ll go over 6 ways to enjoy treats that won’t ruin your diet.
Whether you make your own or buy it at the store, hummus makes an easy healthy snack. Most often made from olive oil, chickpeas, and tahini, it’s a high-protein, high-fiber side dish.
It contains nearly 15 grams of protein per cup.
It’s creamy. It’s smooth.
It tastes good with nearly anything.
And while it’s high in fiber (great for digestive health), here’s 3 things to watch out for:
- It’s best to avoid dessert hummus. As you can guess, these usually have added sugar.
- A ½-cup serving is nearly 13g net carbs.
- That’s why, for many people trying to ‘keep it Keto’ this means… using hummus on a lettuce wrap or as dipping (with celery or raw broccoli).
But what if you’re not into lettuce wrap and more veggies?
What if you seriously miss that crunch?
Try this instead…
Move over rice krispies.
This 4-ingredient, totally Keto recipe isn’t just easy to whip up tonight.. It’s actually low carb and got that CRUNCH!
It’s a sweet treat that’s so close to the real ones (minus the guilt).
3. Singer-songwriter Jewel’s Favorite Snack
You may recognize here her beautiful, soothing voice.
You may remember her 90s hit song “You Were Meant For Me.”
Well, today we’re featuring singer-songwriter Jewel for another reason.
Yes, you read that right.
Sugar-free, Keto cereal is a thing.
And, at just 100 calories a bowl… it’s probably the easiest way to fuel your snack routine without falling off the healthy bandwagon.
How does it taste?
Don’t take our word for it. You can go here to skim through 7,496+ reviews and see which flavors are still available.
4. Monk Fruit Sweetened Dark Chocolate
If you’re a chocolate lover, a good Keto option is a dark chocolate that is sweetened with a sugar-free sweetener.
Look for a dark chocolate that is sweetened with monk fruit, which doesn’t have the strong and bitter aftertaste that stevia often comes with.
This isn’t really about snacking. I just found this helps our journey back to body bliss.
Nobody likes feeling bloated and I’m not different.
There’s a reason I started skipping salty sauces like barbecue, steak or teriyaki. It triggers the body to retain water (in all the wrong places!).
5. Cucumber Rounds With Cream Cheese
This one is so simple it takes just 10 minutes to make.
Amp up your cream cheese by whipping it with chopped fresh dill, some garlic, and onion.
You could even place a dollop of cream cheese or Greek yogurt in the middle of a cucumber slice and roll it up for a different presentation style.
This next one is great for nights when cravings come knocking and… well, as refreshing as cucumbers are, they’re no match for chips cravings.

Do you remember crunchy cheese doodles that make your fingers orange? Well, these Schoolyard Snacks Cheddar Cheese Puffs are a great swap, with only 1 net carb per bag! These are also high in protein and only 100 calories. And people can’t get enough...
