I’m super jealous of those of my friends who don’t have the need to constantly eat chips, bread and crackers. Although sadly, I will never be able to give these foods up altogether, I am definitely trying to eat less carbohydrates. And that means I need snacks. Once again, I turned to my friends in the blog-o-sphere to help me with what is trending in the world of low carb snacks. And once again, my blogger friends did not disappointment. Join me for some Lower Carb Snacks and maybe you’ll find YOUR new favorite snack!

Salt is my downfall, my kryptonite, and found on each one of the foods I just cannot pass up. And these are usually high carb foods. So let’s start there. Here are some lower carb snacks for salt lovers like me.
Let’s start with our very own Roasted Chickpeas with a Hint of Lime. Holly came up with this one and it is the bomb. Crunchy, salty and full of protein, this is the perfect travel snack. Using this Microplane Citrus Zester (affiliate link) will zest your limes quickly and easily making this recipe simple to make!
I just planted two types of kale in my garden. My kids actually like kale chips so I’ve got my eye on these “Cheesy” Jalapeño-Ranch Kale Chips by Food to Glow. Vegan, raw, and actually healthy, these are going to be my new go-to. I might even buy a dehydrator to make these more easily (But shhhh…please don’t tell my husband!).
Garlic Dill Baked Cucumber Chips by Peace, Love, and Low Carb. Be still my beating heart. This photo alone is enough to make me swoon, but garlic and dill? I’m sold. A mandoline will make this recipe easier and faster. It will also make the chips more uniform. This is the mandoline I use. (affiliate link)
Low Carb Crackers by Savory Tooth look like the perfect crackers for dipping. I just bought a new beet and lemon hummus from my local Co-op and these would be the perfect vehicle to get the dip to my mouth. Does anyone else think like that? Priority number 1. Dip to mouth. Who’s with me?
Who doesn’t love pizza! And pizza in chip form? Can’t wait to try these Low Carb Pizza Chips by Beauty and the Foodie. Dipped in pizza sauce. Have I mentioned that I addicted to dipping? I’ve been known to order a food purely for the condiments that come with it. Weird? Maybe.
I have been strangely into cauliflower recently. Roasted, dressed with buffalo sauce, in tacos, as rice, mashed, I love cauliflower! These Parmesan Cauliflower Bites from Dinner Mom look right up my alley. I’m pretty sure my kids will love these too. And yet another food that I could DIP!
Speaking of dip, this Creamy Edamame Dip from The Belly Rules the Mind looks amazing. What a perfect dip for the Low Carb Crackers and the Parmesan Cauliflower Bites! Or just vegetables. Just looking at this dip makes me feel healthier! This dip is even more of a snap to make in a food processor. This is the one I use! (affiliate link)
Look! These Pimento Cheese Stuffed Peppers from Peas and Crayons actually hold their own dip! Genius! Plus these are a feast for the eyes with all of their beautiful colors! The perfect low carb summer snack.
I love pickles. I can’t live without bacon. And these Bacon Wrapped Pickles by Dancing Through the Rain are so simple my 7 year old could make these for me. In fact we’re going to try that. Soon. With the dip (sensing a theme here?).
What is an easier low carb snack than a hard boiled egg? Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs by Kristine’s Kitchen will save you time and money. Throw a batch in the Instant Pot now. Hard boiled eggs all week. Now you have no excuse for not eating breakfast. Or a snack! And if you haven’t gotten on the Instant Pot bandwagon yet, I promise you, we LOVE ours. Both Holly and I have this Instant Pot (affiliate link).
More eggs! These Veggie Egg Cups from Recipes from a Pantry are made in a muffin tin. Quick, low carb and easy to customize. You can make these purely vegetarian, overflowing with bacon and sausage, or anything in between. Clean out your refrigerator and use up all of your veggies! These are the perfect snack (or breakfast)!
For those of you who love the sweeter side of life! Here are some lower carb snacks to satisfy your sweet tooth!
My apple tree is constantly giving us more apples than we know what to do with and after canning apple pie filling and applesauce, I plan on making batches and batches of these Apple Chips by Living Sweet Moments. This is a no-dehydrator needed recipe, but if I’m already getting it for the kale chips…well? Again, please don’t tell my husband!
Growing up in the era of the low-fat diet, these Chocolate Keto Fat Bombs by Diabetes Strong initially made me nervous (INSANELY excited, but nervous). But now I am fully on board with these little nuggets of goodness. And they are so satisfying, you only need one.
Last but certainly not least, these Chocolate Coconut Fat Bombs by Homemade Food Junkie are a sight to behold. Perfect to make ahead and store in the refrigerator or freezer for the next time you need a little pick me up. These would also be fun to make in these silicone molds (affiliate link).
I hope this gives you plenty of inspiration! I’m already working on some new lower carb snacks to be rolled out soon! Please let us know below what YOUR favorite lower carb snacks are, we are always looking for new ideas!
