25 Snacks Under 100 Calories

This post may include affiliate links.

You might find yourself overwhelmed by the amount of canned or pre-packaged snack food options. They certainly make it easy to eat on-the-go, but they’ll also wreak havoc on your waistline. These pre-made options are filled with refined sugar, unhealthy fats, and chemical additives–even if they happen to be low-calorie. On the other hand, homemade snacks will give you an accurate calorie count while also providing your body with the balanced nutrition it needs to run at peak performance. You don’t even need to cook a ton of food to create snacks under 100 calories; all it takes is a little planning!

Never underestimate the value of consuming fresh, whole foods. Sometimes, it seems like it will take too much time (and effort) to eat this way, but in the end you’ll save yourself from loading up on extra sodium, gluten, and added sugars. Store-bought canned and packaged foods are full of this stuff! Once you commit yourself to purchasing high-quality food, the quantity of bioavailable nutrients you consume will go off the charts! Packing snacks under 100 calories will help you get through your work day, your long list of errands, or give you a boost of energy you need before a workout.

25 Snacks Under 100 Calories

1. Chocolate Banana

It’s as easy as dipping half a frozen banana in two squares of melted dark chocolate! If you love chocolate check out this Clean-Eating Hot Fudge.

2. Grilled Pineapple

Try this fresh take on raw pineapple by taking 2 ¼-inch thick pineapple rounds (about 1 cup) and grilling them for two minutes until they’re golden and delicious.

3. Berries n’ Cream

Keep things simple by combining 1 cup blueberries with 2 tablespoons whipped topping. If you love berries, you can also try these tasty FroYo Berry Bites.

4. Chocolate Soy Milk (or other milk alternative)

Instead of buying sugar-rich store-bought chocolate milk, make your own! Combine 6 ounces of skim milk mixed with 2 teaspoons of chocolate syrup for a tasty treat.

5. Banana Chips

Tired of raw bananas? Slice up a banana, dip it in lemon juice, and bake it at 250 degrees for an hour until it’s crispy! Learn more about the health benefits of bananas.

6. Carrots n’ Hummus

Fill up with 10 baby carrots with 2 tablespoons of fiber- and protein-rich hummus. Simple and delicious!

7. Edamame

Edamame is a perfect plant-based protein to fill you up. Just toss ¼ cup of boiled edamame with 1 teaspoon soy sauce and enjoy this salty snack!

8. Greek-Style Tomatoes

Make a perfectly satisfying snack with little more than a tomato. Chop up one tomato (about the size of a tennis ball) and mix it with 1 tablespoon feta and a squeeze of lemon juice.

9. Kale Chips

You can get your crunch on without store-bought chips! Just bake up ½ cup raw kale (stems removed) with 1 teaspoon olive oil at 400° F until crisp.

10. Sweet Potato Fries

Say goodbye to fatty fries. Slice up one light-bulb sized sweet potato, toss it with 1 teaspoon olive oil, and bake at 400° F for 10 minutes. Easy, peasy!

11. Turkey Roll-Ups

When you’re craving a sandwich, turn to the lean protein of turkey, instead. Take four slices of smoked turkey and roll ’em up in large romaine lettuce leaves. They’re also great dipped in 2 teaspoons of organic honey mustard.

12. Chips n’ Salsa

Next time you reach for the salsa, swapped in some baked pita chips instead of salty tortilla chips. 10 baked pita chips with ¼ cup pico de gallo or chunky salsa is one of our favorite snacks under 100 calories!

13. Almond Butter & Celery

Quick, easy, and delicious. Snack on 1 medium celery stalk with 1 tablespoon almond butter.

14. Apples n’ Peanut Butter

If celery isn’t your thing, opt for an apple, instead. ½ an apple, sliced and dipped in 1 teaspoon natural peanut butter will keep your energy up and keep your stomach from rumbling.

15. Nuts

Ten almonds or cashews are sure to fill you up when you’re needing a snack. Or, opt for 1 tablespoon nut butter, licked straight from the spoon! For a fun twist on regular nuts, try these Slow Cooker Cinnamon & Honey Nuts.

16. Small Sliced Avocado

There’s nothing like healthy fats to quench your hunger cravings. Cut an avocado in half, sprinkle it with salt and pepper, and eat it right out of the peel. You could even drizzle it with hot sauce, if you like.

17. Mixed Raw Vegetables and Plant-Based Ranch

Slice up some celery, bell peppers, carrots, or any other raw vegetables you like. Serve them with ¼ cup of fat-free ranch dressing (or, even better, make our plant-based ranch recipe instead).

18. Bell Peppers n’ Hummus

We love hummus! Slice up half of a red bell pepper and dip it in 3 tablespoons hummus (try this avocado hummus for a fun twist).

19. Smoked Salmon on a Bagel

Carbs don’t have to be the enemy: Sometimes, they’re just what you need to get a burst of energy. Top half of a small bagel with 1 ounce smoked salmon.

20. Tuna

You don’t have to make tuna salad with all that tuna fish you have in the pantry! Turn it into a snack by mixing together 2 tablespoons of water-packed tuna with 1 teaspoon of Greek yogurt. Add a teaspoon of diced onion to give it a spicy flavor and a crunchy texture.

21. Berry Yogurt

Store-bought flavored yogurt can be packed full of added sugars, so make your own at home instead! Blend ½ cup fat-free natural yogurt with ½ cup raspberries. Any berry will work; raspberries just happen to be our favorite.

22. Berries n’ Ice Cream

3-Ingredient Banana Pudding Ice Cream

For an extra-special treat, snack on ice cream as a mid-day pick-me-up. Scoop two level scoops of low-fat, plain ice cream (or, this plant-based Banana Pudding Ice Cream) into a container and add ¼ cup blueberries. Freeze until you’re ready to eat!

23. Red Grapes

Keep things really simple with this snack: Munch on ¾ cup red grapes for a sweet treat, plus antioxidant protection.

24. Tea n’ Toast

Some of our favorite snacks under 100 calories are as simple as this: Enjoy 1 slice of toasted fruit bread with 1 cup peppermint tea. Easy!

25. Watermelon Salad

Sweet and savory flavors are often the most satisfying. Try combining 1 cup watermelon cubes with 1 tablespoon crumbled goat cheese and 2 chopped leaves of fresh mint.

Remember, all these snacks become healthier and more filling with a full, eight ounce class of water! For more grab n’ go ideas try these No-Bake-Bars or for tons of healthy recipes, pick up your SkinnyMs. Slow Cooker e-Book today!

    I find it interesting that you have bananas on this list multiple times–yet at the top of your site are repeated notices not to eat bananas. In fact, you say it is "one of the foods never to eat–if you want to lose belly fat"

      Laura, That is an advertisement. The ads seek out words used in our post and are created based on the words. We do promote eating bananas.

    The other day you had listed a baked apple snack – I forgot to write down how long to bake. It was a peeled, cored and halved apple drizzled with honey and sprinkled with cinammon. Do you bake it for 350 for 20 mins?

    We have no microwaves in our building. Alas, melted chocolate is not an option.

    How many calories in Hummous? I googled and it said 150 for a tablespoon portion? I have used as a salad dressing in the past and was rather sad to find it so high in calories
