Here are the absolute best gluten free snacks, in my opinion! I eat gluten free more so than most people I know, and it’s important to me to be able to prepare delicious, nutritious snacks for any time of day. The reason why so many people struggle with gluten-free foods is simply due to the fact that they don’t find them tasty enough, but they still manage to eat them, because they have some “hidden” ingredient! This is called “gluten”, and since this ingredient is commonly used in most processed foods, it can sneak up on you when you’re not looking! Here are my top picks for the best gluten free snacks, by category:
Any crackers with sugar free chips are good, as long as they are made with rice flour and water. This will save you a lot of money on your gluten-free snacks, as you won’t have to buy expensive crackers and snack on sugar free chips. There are so many delicious crackers out there, that you should easily be able to find good ones in any nut recipe that you find online. These include peanut butter and almond butter crackers, brown rice crackers, corn chip crackers and oatmeal crackers – even so-called “healthy” crackers, which aren’t really anything but heavily sweetened and processed sugar! Here are my favorites:
You can also make granola bars and other delicious snack cakes in your own kitchen. There are so many different types of nut cakes and other delicious snacks that you’re sure to love making some of your own. Simply start with some dried fruit, nuts, dried fruit toppings (such as maple syrup, honey, etc), and some unsweetened whey protein (or soy milk if soy is not an issue for you). You can even make your own hot cereal! The possibilities are endless, and you’ll probably end up with a whole host of new gluten free snacks that you’ll love to eat.
If you really crave cookies or other snacks like bagels, donuts, and brownies, then you might want to try making your own gluten free snacks using ingredients that you already have in your pantry or kitchen. For example, there are several different foods that you can use as a base for your own personal creations, including vegetables, cheeses, meats, fruits, spices, and even peanut butter and chocolate almond butter cookies. You can make use of any combination of these different ingredients in order to create many different delicious snacks that you’ll never forget. Here are a few recipes that I’ve found to be particularly tasty and satisfying:
For starters, a delicious snack that I often enjoy is to use fresh fruit with peanut butter and maple syrup on top, and enjoy a big bowl of popcorn with fresh vegetables and a dip. Another delicious combination that works well is to use cheddar cheese, salsa, and olives on top of a tortilla sandwich for a delicious healthy snack. A nice idea for snacking that goes along with this idea is to snack on grapes (without the soda) and honey. Now here’s a delicious recipe that also doubles as a great activity for the kids: Bake some lean ham and Swiss potatoes, and top with bell pepper, onion, garlic, and a bit of salt and pepper for a delicious healthy snack. Make sure to serve your veggies before serving your main dish because the hot peppers and spinach dip may burn your guests’ appetite for the main dish.
There are lots of other amazing combinations that you can create when it comes to creating delightful and flavorful snacks that are both healthy and delicious. The key is to stay creative and experiment with different ingredients so that you’ll never run out of interesting and tasty snacks for your family to enjoy. Also, remember that you don’t have to give up eating all of the fruits and vegetables that you love in order to come up with tasty and nutritious snacks. You can still come up with healthy and tasty snacks that are just as delicious as any traditional recipe that uses regular ingredients that everyone loves to eat.
