5 Delicious And Nutritious Low-Sugar Snacks
Candies, desserts, and other sugary treats… they taste great but their sugar content probably won’t do you any favors. While a burst of sugar tastes good in the moment, the long-term effects are undeniable: acne, weight gain, lack of energy, and other health conditions are just not worth it.
Snack manufacturers and dessert connoisseurs have searched long and hard for a way to satisfy sweetness cravings without the sugar. Some of the best low-sugar snacks come from nature – you simply can’t beat a handful of nuts or some peanut butter.
If, however, you’re looking for a reliable snack company that ALSO prioritizes low sugar nutrition, the good news is that Munk Pack has finally done it. Low in sugar but high on the deliciousness scale, our snacks and bars are just what you need to keep your energy levels up and your tastebuds happy.
Here are some of our favorite low-sugar snacks that will keep you fueled, energized, and ready for whatever comes your way.
- Keto Nut and Seed Bars
Snackers looking for a keto-friendly way to satisfy their cravings for sweets need look no further than Munk Pack’s Keto Nut & Seed Bars! Choose between Sea Salt Dark Chocolate, Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate, Coconut Almond Dark Chocolate, and Caramel Sea Salt. Can’t decide which one is right for you? We suggest the Keto Nut & Seed Bar Variety Pack. These low-sugar snacks are relatively low-cal (each bar contains just 150 calories with 1 gram of sugar or less) and the ingredients are carefully curated to ensure a delicious and nutritious low-sugar snack. Some flavors contain peanuts, which are a great source of protein that can help build muscle and repair body cells. All of the bars contain almonds, which are filled with healthy fatty acids and nutrients.
- Peanut Butter & Celery
There’s nothing wrong with going back to basics! Good old PB (hold the J) makes a delicious low-sugar snack when you choose the right kind of peanut butter. For a yummy low-sugar snack you easily make right at home, try spooning out about 2 tbsp of peanut butter into a small container and slicing up 1-2 stalks of celery. The key to making this a low-sugar snack is to look at the ingredients in the peanut butter you use. Opt for brands that don’t use added sugars or oils. In fact, the only ingredient you really need for peanut butter is peanuts!
- DIY Trail Mix
Another at-home way to make low-sugar snacks is with a do-it-yourself trail mix. The trick for keeping this low-sugar but high on the satiation scale is to use raw or roasted nuts or seeds. Avoid high-sugar dried fruits as well. Many trail mixes that you may find in the store might have chocolate chips or cranberries. While these will definitely sweeten your trail mix, they won’t do any favors for keeping you in ketosis. Instead, we recommend adding a variety of nuts (almonds, cashews, and peanuts are all great) and being sparing with dried fruits like blueberries and raisins. If you just need your chocolate fix, we suggest going for cacao nibs.
- Keto Granola Bars
Keto Granola Bar Variety Pack! Our Keto Granola Bars as well as our Keto Nut & Seed Bars are sweetened with allulose, a natural sweetener that is often used in low-sugar snacks. Compared to sugar, allulose has less of an impact on blood sugar levels and is easier on your digestive system than some other common sugar alternatives. These bars also contain coconut which can provide sustainable energy levels, promote satiety, and help with vitamin absorption.
Avocados are some of the healthiest fruits you’ll find! Best of all, they are super low in sugar. Rich in fiber, monounsaturated fats, and antioxidants, avocados are nutrient-dense, travel well, and are filling. Eat ½ an avocado on its own or mix it into a make-your-own guacamole with keto-approved ingredients!
