Snack smarter with these 100-calorie gluten-free treats.
If you’re adjusting to a new gluten-free diet, snacking is going to be a challenge. It’s definitely hard to find gluten-free treats that are filled with healthy ingredients, but you don’t want to stop snacking. After all, staying full in between meals is an important part of any healthy diet! It not only keeps your body filled with energy, but it helps you stay satiated until the next meal. That means less binging and more success in meeting your weight-loss goals! These low calorie gluten free snacks will help you get there without feeling guilty. It’s about snacking smarter, not snacking less!
The big problem with removing gluten from your diet is that it denies you access to many store-bought, healthy snacks. It leaves you finding it all too easy to reach for that bag of unhealthy (but gluten-free) potato chips, so we wanted to make it easier for you by sharing this list of low calorie gluten free snacks. Each snack is delicious and easy to make, and many of them make perfect grab-and-go style snacks for your on-the-go lifestyle.
Our Favorite Low Calorie Gluten Free Snacks
1. No-Bake Oatmeal Raisin Energy Bites
This is my favorite gluten-free snack. You don’t have to do any cooking at all, and it makes a fridge full of grab-and-go snacks! Keep in mind that to hit the 100-calorie mark, you’ll have to eat half of the recommended 2-ball serving size (that just means more snacks for later in the week).

2. 5-Ingredient Buckwheat Crepes
This gluten-free, vegan recipe from Minimalist Baker is perfect when you want a quick pick-me-up. This 71-calorie snack is delicious on its own, or you can fill them with fresh fruit, a dollop of coconut yogurt, or a bit of jam. Tasty, delicious, and filling!

18. Garlic Edamame
Every 1/2 cup serving of Edamame has 95 calories, but it’ll keep you feeling full thanks to all that plant-based protein. That makes these a great gluten-free snack, and we love how Pinch of Yum ramps up the flavor in this recipe by adding garlic and sea salt.
