The Best Gluten-free Snacks You Haven't Heard of. . . Yet!

Living gluten free is a challenge. Whether you have celiac disease or just a sensitivity, you’ll find that they hide gluten in just about everything. While gluten free baked goods are on the rise, ditching the wheat doesn’t really make those snacks healthier.

So we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite gluten free snacks that help you avoid gluten while still watching your macros and calories.

GLUTEN-FREE SNACKING DELIGHT

YOUTOPIA SNACKS

Kicking off the list are our very own Youtopia Snacks! Specifically designed around the macronutrient ratio that Dietitians recommend, Youtopia's low calorie and high protein snacks are also gluten free! But you'd never know it based on how yummy they are ;)

PLANT SNACKS CASSAVA ROOT CHIPS

These chips are a great low calorie alternative to traditional chips and a completely gluten free snack. While they don’t have much in the way of macros, sometimes all you need is a snack to get you through the day.

FROM THE GROUND UP CAULIFLOWER CRACKERS

Who doesn’t love Cheez-Its? Well if you’re gluten intolerent, your stomach probably isn’t a fan. Not only are these crackers by From the Ground UP gluten free, but they’re also plant based. They’re low fat, low sugar, and low calorie so you can munch all day.

POPCORNERS FLEX CHIPS

At this point, we’re all pretty familiar with puffed rice or corn chips, but PopCorners kick it up a notch. Their Flex line of chips has 10 grams of protein per serving, and one of the three flavors is even vegan friendly. Of course, all three are gluten free.

HIPPIE SNACKS AVOCADO CRISPS

Chips made out of different foods are popular in today’s market, but many of them aren’t any healthier than the potato alternative. These avocado based chips from Hippie Snacks, on the other hand, offer 5 grams of protein and plenty of healthy, unsaturated fats.

WHOLESOME PROVISIONS PROTEIN CHIPS

Speaking of chips that pack a nutritional punch, we couldn’t leave out these high protein, high fiber, and, of course, gluten free snacks from Wholesome Provisions. Their protein chips have 14 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, and only 5 grams of fat.

FBOMB REAL FOOD SNACK BARS

The rest of this list tends to focus on protein and fiber, and while those are generally the hardest macros for people to hit, you may be on a diet that emphasizes healthy fats. That’s where this bar from FBomb (the F stands for fat) comes into play. These bars are keto friendly, gluten free, and very low sugar.

CHOMPS ORIGINAL BEEF STICK

This may seem like a no brainer. Of course a beef stick is gluten free. However, so many other jerky and beef stick brands use a ton of nasty additives or package their snacks in huge portions. The Chomps Original Beef Stick has just 90 calories and 9 grams of protein. Plus, their beef is grass fed and doesn’t have any fillers.

POWERFUL FOODS POWERFUL YOGURT

Yogurt is an excellent snack that is almost always gluten free. Unfortunately, a lot of yogurt isn’t too stellar in the nutrition department. Powerful Foods tackles that issue head on with their line of Greek yogurt. With 20+ grams of protein per serving, this snack earns the “powerful” title. It still has all of the probiotics you expect from your yogurt as well.
