Top 10 Snacks for Paleo Dieters

Updated on March 6, 2015

The key to sticking to any healthy diet is to make it easy to stick to that diet. We all know that one of the best ways to make a diet easy to follow is to plan out your meals, but one way in which many of us fail is forgetting to also plan out our snacks. These 10 quick paleo snack ideas will not only make sticking to your Paleo Diet easy, but delicious as well!

1) Fresh Fruit

A staple snack of any healthy diet, fresh fruit is delicious and easy to bring with you on-the-go. While Paleo dieters can't go overboard with fruit, 2-3 servings per day is perfectly acceptable!

2) Nuts

It can be difficult to know what to eat on a Paleo Diet, so it is important to make a distinction here. Nuts are allowed on the Paleo Diet, but Legumes are not. That means you can safely snack on almonds, cashews, or macadamia nuts, but you have to stay away from peanuts.

3) Primal Scotch Egg

This Paleo spin on the traditional British snack comes from Mark's Daily Apple. They are essentially hardboiled eggs wrapped in sausage and fried in oil. They're every bit as delicious as that combination sounds, and super quick to fry up and keep in the fridge.

4) Kale Chips

Kale chips are hands-down one of the healthiest snacks you can ever munch on. You can whip up quick and tasty Kale Chips in about 20 minutes total, including only 5 minutes of preparation and 15 minutes of cooking time, making this superfood snack an awesome choice for those with limited time for snacking.

5) Paleo Donuts

Wait a second - paleo WHAT? Yes, it's true, you can make Paleo Donuts, and they are sweet, delicious, and satisfying. Inspired by the Hostess Chocolate Frosted donuts we've all seen in the supermarket aisles, this recipe does an amazing job of creating a treat that tastes similar to its inspiration, but acceptable for those following a Paleo diet.

6) Quick Crackers

These paleo-friendly quick crackers are easy to make and pack a delicious and satisfying crunch! Moreover, you only need three ingredients to make them: egg, almond meal, and butter. Sprinkle a little salt for taste, and you're all set after about 20 minutes in the oven. Pair it with your favorite dip or something like chicken salad, and you've got a versatile and flavorful paleo snack.

7) No-Ritos

We all wish that Doritos were paleo friendly, but unfortunately they are on the exact opposite side of that spectrum. If you've been missing that salty, zesty, crunchy goodness on the Paleo Diet, then we've got something for you. Enter No-Ritos. A brainchild of Cave Food Kitchen, these grain-free snacks are tasty and easy to make.

8) Paleo KIND Bars

KIND Bars are a snack bar sold on the shelves of supermarkets across the USA. The folks over at Primal Bites have managed to find a way to make a healthier, paleo-friendly version of KIND Bars. These bars look and taste amazing, and can be prepared in advance so that you can grab one and take it on the go in a matter of seconds. Paleo Kind Bars might be the ultimate paleo snack.

9) Strawberry Fruit Leather

Unlike storebought fruit snack counterparts, this paleo-friendly Strawberry Fruit Leather is all-natural and without additives. The kicker? They are dead simple to make. The process is essentially pureeing strawberries (or a fruit of your choice), pouring it out in a thin sheet on a baking pan, and cooking it in the oven for 7-8 hours on a low heat. As if all of that weren't enough incentive to want to try to make this delicious paleo snack, there's more yet: these snacks are non-perishable, meaning you can cook up a batch, store them in plastic baggies, and grab them on the go for a quick snack on the road. Now that's convenience!

10) Beef Jerky

A classic on-the-go snack, and for those that enjoy it, a delicious salty treat. Storebought beef jerky that you might find on the shelves of convenience stores and supermarkets across the country is filled with additives and unnatural chemicals and preservatives, but Brian Green has an incredible Paleo Beef Jerky recipe that makes this snack possible on a Paleo Diet. You will need a Food Dehydrator to get started, but those can be obtained for relatively cheap these days and go a long way if you're willing to get creative in the kitchen.
