keto snacks

Regardless of what diet you follow, being prepared with snacks is key to maintaining or achieving these goals.

This is no different to a keto diet. While breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes are easy to sort out, it’s the snacks that can be the downfall.

Studies show that regular snacking keeps blood sugars steady, and this is especially important on a keto diet. There is a misconception that a keto diet lacks quality and is easy to make and find snacks, but this is NOT the truth. Sure, traditional snacks that we are accustomed to are high in carbs and not keto friendly. However, there are plenty of snack ideas to include on a low carb diet, and these include snacking staples like chips, bars, and energy balls. 

What snacks can I eat on keto? 

As someone who adores chips, I often get asked ‘what chips can you have on a keto diet?’ Well, there are actually tons of keto snack recipes to choose from, and my favorite are pita chips. They need just 3 key ingredients to make and are perfect with all the condiments, including keto hummus. Here is how to make it. 

The Ingredients

  • Keto tortillas– Either homemade tortillas or a store bought one, like Mission Foods or Siesta. 
  • Olive oil– To fry the tortillas in. 
  • Salt and pepper– To taste. 
  • Dipping condiments– We love serving these with guacamole, salsa, or even a cheese sauce

The Instructions

For extra crispy chips, let the tortillas sit at room temperature, uncovered, for 1-2 hours. This allows them to dry out properly. Once dry, use kitchen scissors to slice up triangles and set them aside.

Now, add olive oil to a non-stick pan. Once hot, add enough tortilla triangles to the pan and fry for 2-3 minutes, until golden around the edges. Remove the cooked chips and place them on a plate lined with paper towel. Repeat the process until all the triangles have been fried. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve with your favorite condiments. 

Storing and freezing instructions

  • To store: Leftovers can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to two weeks. 
  • To freeze: Placed the cooled snacks in a ziplock bag and store it in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Keto Snacks to buy

Although homemade snacks are preferred, if you are on the go and need something in a pinch, here are some fantastic options to buy.

  • Nuts and seeds– Raw or salted nuts and seeds, including macadamia nuts, almonds, and walnuts.
  • Peanut butter– No added sugar nut and seed butters, including almond butter and tahini. Dip celery in them for a delicious low carb pairing.
  • Cheese– Cubes of hard cheeses or sliced cheese. Avoid process cheeses, as they contain added carbs.
  • Deli meats– Preservative free and low sodium deli meat. Enjoy them with cream cheese, lettuce, or wrapped around pickles.

  • Low carb vegetables and dip– Celery and cucumber slices with full fat cream cheese or low carb dip.
  • Avocado– Packed with healthy fats and fiber. Mash an avocado with salt, pepper, and lemon juice.
  • Hard boiled eggs– Easily accessible from grocery stores, gas stations and even corner stores.
