The Best Low Sugar Snacks that Still Satisfy Your Cravings

If you’re trying to improve your diet, a sweet tooth can be a serious obstacle. When you get that craving, you can’t rest until you satisfy it. For a lucky few, a square of a chocolate bar may be enough, but for the rest of us, we need something with a little more substance.

If you find yourself in the latter camp, we have you covered. We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite low sugar snacks that will hit that sweet spot without throwing off your macros.

OUR FAVORITE LOW SUGAR SNACKS:

We couldn’t start this list without repping our own nutrition facts. Our two sweet options, Espresso Obsesso and Bananas for Chocolate, each only have 6 grams of sugar. We also packed in 8 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber into each.

We also have a savory option, So Money Honey Mustard, with only 2 grams of sugar and 9 grams of protein!

We love Siggi’s yogurt because of the high protein content (and great taste). Their No Added Sugar line takes it a step further, because each serving has only ~5 grams of sugar. Pair that with the 11 grams of protein, and you have a nutrition packed snack that still satisfies your sweet tooth.

Chia seeds are an excellent food because they’re packed with Omega 3s. These bars from Health Warrior throw in some fiber to give you a filling snack with only 3 grams of sugar.

Are you craving some cookies? High Key is a great option. Whether you’re fully keto or just looking for a low sugar snack, these mini cookies are perfect. A serving only has 1 gram of sugar, plus a little bit of protein and fiber. They are high fat, but most of it comes from healthy sources like coconut oil.

Another keto cookie option, this offering from Lenny and Larry checks all of the boxes. Each cookie has only 2 grams of sugar, and the protein and fiber counts are double that of the High Key cookie.

These snacks from Onnit have a lot more going for them than just their sugar content. Yes, 5 grams of sugar is great and will hit that sweet spot, but they also offer a whopping 7 grams of fiber. That and the 7 grams of protein will keep you full and suppress that sweet tooth.

The last snack on our list is also the highest protein. Their grass-fed whey protein bars have 14 grams of protein, and unlike most brands that balance out the protein taste with mountains of sugar, Oatmega only uses 5 grams.

So many of us are in the habit of picking up a breakfast pastry in the morning, but all that sugar isn’t a great way to start the day. Garden Lites understands the problem, so their muffins only have 10 grams of sugar. Plus, the main ingredient is zucchini, so you also get a few grams of fiber.
