Keto is a popular diet that limits your carbohydrate intake in order to boost protein and fat loss.
However, that generally means having to miss out on your favorite snacks. And that is just no way to love in our opinion.
Having a sweet tooth is nothing for you to hide. In fact, we prefer it!
Although, when following a keto diet you may not know what snacks are going to satisfy those cravings while keeping on track with your diet.
Below are X fantastic quick keto snacks that you can munch on throughout the day.
From keto chocolate mug cake or keto burger fat bombs, you will never think of Cheetos again.
Let’s get into it!
1. Keto Tortilla Chips
When you need a snack that is salty, quick, and easy, this Keto Tortilla Chips recipe is perfect.
All you need is to shred low-moisture mozzarella cheese and almond flour. Then you add any seasonings you wish.
We seasoned ours with chili powder and garlic powder, but you can use any of your favorite seasonings or keep it simple with salt and pepper.
You can also go down a sweeter direction and sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar.
Begin by melting the mozzarella cheese in the microwave before adding your dry ingredients.
Use your hands to knead the dough until a smooth ball comes together.
Roll out the dough onto a sheet of parchment paper and into a rectangle. Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut your dough into triangles and bake until crispy.
Serve with a range of dips such as buffalo chicken, and guacamole, or even dunk them in some delicious keto hot chocolate.
If you’re feeling extra sweet, you can also use a chocolate dip and marshmallows for a magical treat.
Have these on hand whenever you need something crunchy to get you through the day!
2. BLT Egglets
Keeping things low-carb can be tricky. Especially when you have recitals and football games to get to. These BLT Egglets make it easy and delicious to stay on track.
With bacon, mayo, lettuce, and hot sauce all sandwiched between a boiled egg.
It is the definition of a simple snack that feels like more.
They are a great option to make ahead of time for days when grabbing lunch or a snack is practically impossible.
Make a batch of eggs and extra bacon while eating breakfast and have the kids help assemble them together.
They are perfect for fussy kids all the way up to busy adults. And, you can switch up the filling to keep it exciting.
Pre-sliced ham instead of bacon can make the cooking time much quicker and keep the fat content low.
Make a large batch of boiled eggs at the beginning of the week and all you have to do is keep them in the fridge.
Using flavors you and the kids already know makes it an excellent snack for any time of the day!
3. California Sushi Bites
This crispy cucumber snack takes inspiration from a popular American sushi dish that isn’t actually traditional Japanese.
The most popular filling for California maki is imitation crab meat, avocado, and cucumber.
Now, this by no means follows traditional sushi methods but it is extremely easy to make for when you need a high-protein snack before dinner.
Begin by adding lemon juice to season your avocado and adding a spoonful to each slice of cucumber.
Then, in another bowl, combine crab meat, mayo, Sriracha, and green onions, seasoning with salt and pepper.
Mix and top each cucumber slice with a small spoonful of the crab mixture.
They go perfectly with soy sauce or on their own when you are really in a pinch.
These small bites of heaven are perfect for a quick afternoon snack or as an appetizer at a family gathering.
Simply load them up onto a plate and serve them with small dipping bowls of soy sauce for everyone to enjoy.
This recipe takes around 10 minutes to make and is the perfect keto sushi-inspired snack. Don’t have any crab meat?
Canned tuna works great. You can even use shredded chicken for those who are not a fan of fish.
4. Cookie Dough Fat Bombs
Got a spare 10 minutes and need something sweet to get you over that afternoon slump?
These Cookie Dough Fat Bombs are perfect for curbing those cravings while giving you the energy to get through the day.
All you need is butter, powdered Swerve, vanilla extract, salt, almond meal, and a keto bar of your choice. We use Birthday Cake flavor.
What makes them so special? There is no baking involved! These Cookie Dough Fat Bombs are to remain raw for your enjoyment.
So even the most inexperienced of cooks can enjoy something sweet during the day.
Placing them in the oven will not result in cookies, trust us, many have tried.
It is best to keep your Fat Bombs in the refrigerator to prevent them from melting and enjoy them as a quick sweet treat or as a healthy dessert.
When you want to add some texture, roll your Fat Bombs in desiccated coconut. Keto-friendly and truly delicious.
5. The Ultimate Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies
Cookies are the ultimate snack. Whether they are oat and raisin cookies or white chocolate chips, you simply cannot resist a batch of homemade cookies.
But they are full of sugar, carbs, and everything else not good for our bodies.
The Ultimate Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe is here to save the day. They are sugar-free, gluten-free, and perfect for a keto diet.
Using a few substitutes such as almond flour instead of wheat flour and granulated erythritol monk fruit sweetener instead of sugar makes these cookies healthier but tasty.
You can also lose the egg in this recipe which will give you a slightly crispier cookie.
However, the egg adds some protein to this sweet treat that makes you feel even less guilty about indulging.
We recommend adding a pinch of salt to your cookie dough for an even more addictive flavor. Even the kids will love these Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Bring these Chocolate Chip Cookies to any social event and you will be the talk of the night.
They are crispy with just the right amount of chewiness that has you reaching for another, and another.
6. Low-Carb Crispy Cheese Balls
These quick-and-easy keto cheese balls are perfect for a low-carb snack, side dish, or a last-minute party offering, though you might want to double the recipe for a gathering since they’ll disappear quickly.
You are going to need three types of cheeses along with baking powder, almond flour, and seasonings of your choice.
The flavors of cheese and almond might seem strange combined, but you can’t taste the almond at all; it’s just there to keep everything together.
You could also add some crushed chili flakes for some heat to these balls of flavor.
To bake your Cheese Balls you can pop them in the oven for 10-12 minutes, or in the air fryer for 6-8 minutes.
Either way, they are going to come out piping hot, cheesy, and utterly delicious.
Don’t forget to serve them with a dipping sauce. They go perfectly with a sweet chili dip or even something simple like ketchup.
Once they are crispy and cool enough to touch, pop them in a bowl and serve.
Although, you will want to have a backup batch as they will disappear fast.
7. Keto Ice Cream
Going through a breakup, or just in need of something creamy and delicious, this Keto Ice Cream is for you. Made from scratch it is creamy, rich, and worth every calorie.
All you need is coconut milk, heavy cream, Swerve confectioners sweetener, vanilla extract, and salt. And a hand mixer to save your arms the agony of mixing.
This is a long process but once it is complete, you have ice cream for every occasion.
You can also add keto-friendly chocolate chips, green food coloring, and a dash of mint extract for some homemade mint choc chip ice cream.
It will be challenging to scoop the ice cream right out of the freezer. To make it simpler on you (and your biceps), let it defrost at room temperature for around 10 minutes.
Once you can scoop it, you have the perfect dessert to enjoy every night of the week.
Following a keto diet is a great way to take control over your relationship with food and to begin taking care of your body.
But it does not mean you have to miss out on your favorite snacks.
