A photo collage of sweet and savory keto snacks.

Deprivation and cravings are the enemies of any way of eating. For those of us used to snacking, learning how to make tasty low-carb snacks can be the difference between success and failure.

Making sure you always have delicious keto items to reach for is the best insurance against reaching for the foods you’re trying to get away from – starchy, sugary, and processed.

Frequently asked questions

What are keto snacks made of?

If they don’t contain wheat flour or sugar, then what do they contain? Scroll down and you’ll see – the savory items are usually made of any one of the following ingredients or a combination of them:
Almond flour
Salt and spices

The sweet items are generally made with:
Almond flour
Coconut flour
Dark chocolate
Sugar-free sweeteners

Which are better, savory or sweet snacks?

I divided this collection into two parts – savory and sweet. As you can see, the savory part is twice as large as the sweet section. That’s no coincidence.

While sweet snacks are okay once in a while, they do walk a fine line between “snack” and “dessert.” So I usually prefer savory snacks over sweet ones.

Can you suggest store-bought snacks?

If you’re pressed for time or just don’t feel like cooking/baking, there are several good options for you when it comes to pre-made low-carb snacks that you can buy.

My favorite store-bought items include:
Nuts and seeds
Plain pork rinds
Packaged cheese crisps (100% cheese)
Fresh-cut veggies dipped in Ranch dressing
90% chocolate
Whole milk Greek yogurt with berries and nuts
Cheeses and deli meats

Savory Keto Snacks

These are the ones I make most often. They are delicious, each and every one of them, and I do find that they are more satiating than sweet ones.

1. Parmesan crisps

I make these a lot. They are so wonderfully crispy and flavorful. They are made with just cheese (sometimes I add pepperoni or a jalapeno slice in the middle), and without wheat flour diluting their flavor, they truly are better than high-carb cheese crackers.

Homemade Baked Parmesan Crisps

Crispy and wonderfully flavorful, these baked parmesan crisps are the ultimate keto snack. And they are VERY easy to make!

2. Keto beef jerky

3. Avocado fries

4. Homemade pork rinds
