1. Greek yogurt with cinnamon and walnuts
For this sweet snack, combine 100g of greek yogurt with one tablespoon of chopped walnuts and half a teaspoon of cinnamon. This snack has only 160 calories, 12.5 grams of fat, 6 grams of carbs and 5.5 grams of sugar. Besides the nutritional facts, this snack is also high in sodium, fiber and good protein.
2. Berries and cream
The keto diet restricts the fruits you can eat, but berries are allowed. They are rich in fiber and super healthy. For this snack you will need a quarter of a cup of raspberries and 2-3 tablespoons of cream. This snack has 116 calories, 12.5 grams of fat and 3.7 grams of carbs. It also has sodium and protein, so it’s good for your diet.
3. Chocolate and coconut balls
For this super-yummy snack recipe you will need sugar-free chocolate chips, flax seeds, butter, unsweetened cocoa powder, unsweetened shredded coconut and some coconut oil. Put all the ingredients in a food processor and let them form a batter. When it’s done, place the mixture in the fridge for 30 minutes to let it become firm, then roll it into small balls. Put them in the freezer for 30 minutes and then enjoy this yummy snack.
4. Hard boiled eggs
Similar to cheese, hard boiled eggs are an excellent source of protein and fat and they are perfect for your keto diet. Eat a hard-boiled egg whenever you feel the need to snack on something. One egg has a 60 calorie value and a 4 grams fat value.
5. Eggplant fries
While you can easily make vegetable fries out of any veggie, eggplants are keto-friendly. Cut an eggplant into strips at first, then in a bowl mix some sea salt, some black pepper, some smoked paprika and a cup of almond flour. Coat the eggplant strips with the mixture and bake them for 30-35 minutes. Make sure you keep an eye on them so you enjoy them crispy and not burned.
