13 Delicious and Satisfying Keto Snacks That Won't Derail Your Diet

Updated: Feb 27, 2023


One of the biggest challenges when following keto is finding suitable snack options that align with its low-carb and high-fat requirements. Don't worry, though, we've got you covered! Here are some delicious snack ideas that are perfect for keto:

  1. Parmesan Crisps - Preheat your oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread grated parmesan cheese in small circles. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown. Can also be done well with cheddar.

  2. Stuffed Mushrooms: Fill mushroom caps with a mixture of cream cheese, bacon, chopped spinach, garlic, and parmesan cheese, then bake until golden.

  3. Hard-Boiled Eggs - Hard-boiled eggs are a keto staple. They are rich in protein and healthy fats, making them an ideal snack for keto. They are also easy to prepare and portable, making them perfect for on-the-go snacking.

  4. Beef Jerky - Beef jerky is a perfect high-protein snack option for keto. Make sure to check the ingredients and choose a brand that doesn't add sugar or other high-carb ingredients. Even better - make your own in the oven or dehydrator.

  5. Dark Chocolate - Yes, you read that right! Dark chocolate with 70% or higher cocoa content is low in carbs and high in healthy fats. It's also packed with antioxidants, making it a great snack option for keto. *That said, keep in mind the recent Consumer Reports piece identifying "dangerous heavy metals in chocolate from Hershey's, Theo, Trader Joe's, and other popular brands", including the oft-recommended for keto: Lily's Extremely Dark chocolate.

  6. Zucchini Chips - Cut zucchini into thin slices, sprinkle them with salt and pepper, and bake them in the oven at 375°F for 10-15 minutes or until crispy. These crunchy snacks are low in carbs and high in fiber, making them perfect for keto.

  7. Peanut Butter Fat Bombs - Combine peanut butter, coconut oil, and a low-carb sweetener of your choice in a bowl. Mix well and freeze for 30 minutes. These peanut butter fat bombs are a great way to increase your fat intake and satisfy your sweet tooth. Just don't overdo them.

  8. Tuna Salad Cucumber Bites: Scoop tuna salad into cucumber slices and garnish with diced tomatoes and olives, or any other toppings of choice.

  9. Smoked Salmon Rolls & Cucumbers: Roll up smoked salmon with cream cheese, capers, and fresh dill for an elegant snack. Or you could throw all the same ingredients on top of cucumber slices.

  10. Bacon-wrapped Asparagus - Wrap asparagus spears with bacon and bake at 375°F-400°F for 15-20 minutes or until crispy. These savory snacks are low in carbs and high in healthy fats and protein, making them perfect for keto.

  11. Coconut Chips: Toast unsweetened coconut flakes in the oven with a sprinkle of cinnamon until crispy and golden.

  12. Keto Smoothie Bowl: Blend together a small amount of frozen berries, almond milk, Greek yogurt, and a scoop of protein powder, then top with nuts, seeds, and unsweetened coconut flakes. Keep track of your macros and you can fit this into your diet from time to time.

  13. Avocado Deviled Eggs: Halve hard-boiled eggs, remove yolks, and mix with mashed avocado, mayonnaise, and a splash of lemon juice, salt & pepper. Refill egg whites with the mixture.

Whether you're looking for something savory or sweet, these 13 keto-friendly snack ideas are sure to satisfy your cravings without derailing your diet. With plenty of protein, healthy fats, and low-carb options to choose from, you'll never run out of ideas to keep you going throughout the day.
