8 Delicious and Surprisingly Low Carbohydrate Snacks

There are times when all of us want nothing more than a delicious snack. That’s when we reach for the chips, or the pretzels or the over-salted snack mix. But snacks don’t always have to be high in carbohydrates. Here are eight delicious and surprisingly low-carbohydrate snacks that are easy to buy and make.

Low-Carb Granola Bars

Your regular granola bars are packed with carbs so you’re better off avoiding those. But there are many recipes out there for low-carb granola bars as well as health food granola bar brands that also take it easy on the carb content. Generally you want to use nuts, seeds, flax and coconut shavings to make a delicious granola bar that will satisfy your snacking desire without loading you up on carbs.¹

Stuffed Avocado

Avocados do have carbs, but they are from fiber and your body doesn’t absorb that, making it a carb-safe wonder food. Stuffed avocado is one of the best low-carb snacks out there. To make it all you do is cut an avocado in half, take out the pit and fill it with a nice filling like scrambled eggs, hummus, cream cheese or another nice topping. Enjoy!²

Eggplant And Chickpea Bites

This is a superstar of the snacking world and it involves putting together chickpeas with eggplant, garlic and cumin and serving with yogurt. To make these you cut up eggplant and roast them in the oven at around 390 degrees with coriander, cumin and garlic for 40 minutes then you take out the eggplant flesh and add chickpeas, lemon zest and make it into balls. Cool it in the fridge the roast the balls in the oven for 20 minutes at 320 degrees. Take out, let cool and serve with harissa yogurt.³


Kale is a wonderfood, low-carb leafy green that’s full of all sorts of great stuff like Vitamin K and folate. A cup of kale has under one gram of carbs so you are fully covered in the low-carb department. Kale chips are a great option if the taste of raw or sauteed kale isn’t your cup of tea. All you do is tear up kale leaves into chip size bits and then put them on a baking tray with parchment paper on it. Put olive oil and salt on the kale – and some garlic powder or spices like paprika if desired – and then back it around 350 degrees for around 10 minutes. Take out and enjoy the deliciousness.²
