The ultimate list of keto friendly snacks to keep you satisfied all day long. More than 90 healthy snack ideas to help you conquer those cravings and stick to your ketogenic diet.
The ketogenic diet is not that hard. I repeat, the ketogenic diet is NOT that hard. Really, believe me…I’ve been doing it for years now.
But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t take some work and some preparation. Okay, I will admit it. Sticking to a keto diet can take a lot of preparation sometimes. And having keto diet snacks on hand at all times can make the difference between sticking with it and succumbing to temptation and kicking yourself out of ketosis.
Therein lies the problem, of course. You can’t just walk in to any store or restaurant and grab yourself some keto snacks. We are making progress on that front, for sure, but we’ve still got a ways to go. While there are a number of decent store-bought options like cheese, nuts, and hard-boiled eggs, there are potential pitfalls everywhere. Like beef jerky, which can often contain a startling amount of sugar and carbs.
But not to worry. There are so many great keto snacks out there, both homemade and store-bought, and I’ve compiled this huge list of recipes and ideas so you never have to go hungry. A wee bit of prep work here and there can put you in good stead to stick to your keto diet, even while out with friends or traveling!

Store-bought Keto Friendly Snacks
Pork rinds – Not all pork rinds are created equal, of course. Look for ones without hydrogenated oils and additives.
Cheese sticks – What’s your fancy? Cheddar? Mozzarella? They’ve got cheese sticks and individual servings of all kinds. Also the ones that are already wrapped in salami or prosciutto for you are tasty too!
Cheese crisps – Tons of great brands putting out crispy cheese snacks. We love the ones from Cello Whisps.
Salami – Buy a big stick or some of the little individual cuts.
Keto Bars – Proceed with caution. I have yet to see a keto bar that isn’t made with some sort of fiber syrup and this often spikes blood sugar. I do have some on hand but only for traveling and I only ever eat half of one in a sitting.
Meat sticks – Again, so many great brands out there now, but we really love the ones from Duke’s.
Nui Cookies – formerly Keto Kookies. They are the only pre-packaged cookie I’ve liked thus far. I still only eat one at a time, to keep the carbs down.
Hard boiled eggs – many stores carry them already to go for you!
Seaweed snacks – Again, lots of great brands. They aren’t very filling but they are great when the munchies hit.
Avocado – Just cut it in half and eat it with a spoon! Or buy some pre-made guacamole and eat that with a spoon.
Jerky/Biltong – Be careful here. A lot of jerky has a ridiculous amount of sugar so be a label reader and choose wisely. We love this traditional South African biltong from Ayoba-Yo.
Primal Thin Crackers – thus far, the best keto crackers I’ve tasted. They actually stay crisp!
Nuts – of all kinds. Walnuts, pecans, almonds, oh my! And macadamia nuts are like little fat bombs unto themselves. Cashews are a little on the carby side, though. Thankfully, you can buy nuts almost anywhere.
Nut butters – all you need is a spoon! You can easily make your own sugar-free versions. And you can buy some great ones online these days. This Pecan Pie Butter from Legendary Foods is heavenly!
Sugar-Free chocolate – Lots of great brands these days. I don’t go anywhere without my Lily’s!
Pre-cooked bacon – Some of this stuff is pretty junky, to be honest. But Nature’s Rancher sells little individual packets of their uncured bacon at Whole Foods. It’s a good option in a pinch!
Celery sticks – grab yourself a bottle of ranch dressing for dipping. Or simply spread with some cream cheese.
Cucumber – same deal as the celery sticks.
Snap Peas – these I just eat on their own. They are like candy to me, but at about 5g total carbs per 1/2 cup, they are a lot healthier than candy!
Pumpkin seeds – lots of fun, unique flavors out there from a number of brands.
Smoked salmon – I can eat this straight up, just popping pieces into my mouth. But it’s also great with a little cream cheese and a few capers.
Tuna pouches – there are some good flavors out there, just be sure to read the label for added carbs.
Pickles and Olives – I like them spicy! Other pickled veggies, like green beans and cauliflower, are great too.
