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 100 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 100 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.
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).
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!
If you’re going gluten-free, you need a few good root vegetable or kale chip recipes. This recipe from Sugar-Free Mom crisps up to perfection in the oven and it makes a perfect accompaniment to salsas or hummus. Or, enjoy it as a stand-along snack.
This is such a great snacking recipe because it only takes 15 minutes to pull it together. This fresh salad is packed full of nutrient-dense vegetables while also satisfying your sweet tooth with that incredible balsamic dressing. If you’re not a fan of salads as a snack, give this a try and it might change your mind!
Hummus is one of my favorite gluten-free snacks. It tastes great with raw vegetables or root vegetable chips, and it’s portable so you can pack it in an air-tight container and bring it with you to work. This recipe from the Minimalist Baker is also infused with anti-inflammatory spices: turmeric and ginger!
Fruit roll-ups don’t have to be for kids! This clean-eating snack from Sugar-Free Mom only has three ingredients and it will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth. You don’t even need a dehydrator – you can pull this recipe off in a low-temperature oven.
When you need a snack that feels pretty substantial, turn to this recipe from Pinch of Yum. Each tomato only has 90 calories but they’re cheesy, rich, and satisfying. They reheat really well, too, so feel free to pack one with you to the office and reheat it in the microwave.
There’s nothing you can’t do with this 79 calorie salsa recipe! In addition to using it as an egg topping for breakfast and eating it on tacos, it tastes great on its own scooped up with some root vegetable chips.
If you’re a fan of flaky biscuits, you have to check out this tasty snack from the Minimalist Baker. We love these for breakfast just as much as a midday snack. In fact, we’d be fine chowing down on these any time of day!
