Maybe you have a movie night with friends, an important football game this weekend, or maybe you are just hungry. Getting some snacks may be the answer, but many popular snack foods usually have too many carbs to easily fit into a keto diet plan. This can be particularly frustrating when you’re trying to keep on track with your diet.

That’s why we’re sharing some delicious, quick, and easy keto snack options.

Easy and quick keto snacks ⏱️

Take the edge off your hunger with these tasty options. Almost no preparation required! Plus, they will help you to fit more fat into your diet.

  • Avocados — This is one of the best keto snacks. Just add a little salt and pepper, or mash it up with some mayonnaise, and you’ll be all set to snack. You can also change things up with a little homemade guacamole.
  • High-fat nuts and nut butters — Some nuts are fairly high in carbs (such as cashews and pistachios), so it is best to keep your snack portions small. Stay away from any nuts or nut butters that have added carbs, polyunsaturated oils, or vegetable oils.
  • Pepperoni slices — These go great with high-fat cheese.
  • Cheese slices — Feel free to combine them with other snacks from this article, such as pork.
  • Sardines — Not only do they provide a healthy dose of fat and other nutrients, but they are also zero-carb. For some extra fat, purchase the sardines that are canned with olive oil.
  • Peanut butter — Who can’t get enough peanut butter? It provides a delicious way to curb cravings, meet protein needs, and increase healthy fat intake.
  • Seeds — Add flaxseeds and/or chia seeds to your nut butters or nut mixes for some extra protein, fat, fiber, and health benefits.
  • Cherry tomatoes — These do have some net carbs, so be mindful of how many you are eating.
  • Coffee — Drink it black to raise your energy and ketone levels without the extra calories. You can also add heavy cream or MCT oil powder if you need more fat in your diet.
  • Tea — If you’d like to add more fat, feel free to mix in some heavy cream or MCT oil powder.
  • Bacon — Don’t forget about bacon! Cook some ahead of time to have ready-to-eat bacon when you are on the go.
  • Veggie sticks — Slice your favorite keto-friendly veggies and store them in the fridge, so they’re easy to grab and go. You could dip these in homemade guacamole, keto dip, or eat them with full-fat cheeses.
  • Salad — You really can’t go wrong with low-carb vegetables, especially with mixed greens as the base. Add some bacon bits, hard-boiled egg, and/or parmesan cheese for extra fat and protein.

Keto sweet snacks that taste really good 🍫

  • Dark chocolate — If not sweetened with stevia or another low carb sweetener, make sure it’s at least 80% cocoa content or higher, as the carbs can add up quickly.
  • Cacao nibs — These little chunks of cacao bean are the original “chocolate chips.” They are flavorful, healthy, and very low carb. Munch on these piece by piece, or have them with nuts, nut butter, or seeds. Be careful though; you can easily overeat these and accumulate calories quickly.
  • Fat bombs — They are super high in fat, packed with flavor, and so easy to make in bulk.
  • Keto smoothies and shakes — you can use veggies, berries, or even nut butter, so get creative!

The best keto movie snacks 🎬

And if you are having a movie night, here are some ideas:

  • Olives — They are a great source of fat and fiber. Just pick your favorites, and enjoy.
  • Pork rinds — If you crave something crunchy and salty, have these instead of carb-rich crackers or chips.
  • Macadamia nuts — With high amounts of monounsaturated fat and minimal omega-6 content, they are a great option. Be careful with them though! They can be surprisingly easy to overeat. Look for raw macadamia nuts in small packages for added convenience and portion control.
  • Pickles — Want something satisfyingly sour? Sugar-free pickles will do the trick. These low-calorie snacks can also provide you with some of the minerals you need to help curb cravings.
  • Seaweed snacks — They make an ideal snack for those who want all the saltiness and crunch of chips without the calories. Make sure that there aren’t any added ingredients that contribute unnecessary calories or carbs.
  • Beef jerky — Make sure the brand you choose is no or very low-carb with very few added ingredients.

Now you have tons of keto-friendly snacks to choose from! Just remember to purchase minimally processed products without any carb-containing additives or fillers, and that will help you meet your goals. Happy snacking! 😋
