You’re probably here because you’ve started the Keto diet and run into trouble thinking of Keto snacks to be eating throughout the day.
It can be a challenge to stay on top of the game and fight off the temptation of some garlic bread or high-carb fruit.
I’ve learned the best way to stay on top of any diet is have a list of go-to snacks that are in line with your program. This helps build determination and focus in your diet goals.
If you aren’t on the Keto diet yet, these snacks are still healthy! For each snack I’ll run through the nutritional value and benefits you get from each.

Easy to make, packed with nutrients.
Each egg gives about 12% of your daily protein value. They also are a good source of Vitamin D and B-12.
To make just add eggs to boiling water for 5 minutes. Take out, drain, set in cold water and peel. Add salt, pepper, or other spices if desired. An easy Keto snack!
Dried lean meat provides a huge protein boost and is available anywhere.
This one is so great for the Keto diet because jerky can be bought nearly anywhere. Gas stations, grocery stores, corner marts, etc. Anytime you’re looking for a quick Keto snack just find some nearby jerky.
Jerky is high in protein. One 20g strip accounts for 14% of your daily needs.
There are so many flavors too. Peppered, jalapeno, teriyaki, sweet & sour, the list goes on. If you get bored of beef jerky, you can move on to other meats. Turkey, bacon, buffalo, venison, pheasant, and more have been made in jerky form.
High fat and high protein, the perfect Keto combo.
The recommended ratio for the Keto diet is 70% fat, 25% protein, and 5% carbohydrates. Well, pork rinds “eat up” a large portion of the fat and protein daily values.
One serving of pork rinds fills 34% of your protein needs and 13% of your fat needs.
Pork rinds are fried or roasted pork fat pieces. You can find them at most stores.
Crazy amount of fat, also very high fiber.
One cup of sliced avocado will give you 32% of your daily fat needs (21g). In addition that same cup will give you 40% of your fiber needs.
You need to eat fat on the Keto diet, but you also need to keep your digestive system flushed and clear. The fiber in avocados is crucial to the Keto diet.
Fat and protein make peanut butter an amazing Keto snack!
Peanut butter is packed with 8g of protein (16% daily value) and 16g of fat (24% daily value). This perfect for the Keto diet.
If you are allergic to peanuts, try other butters like sunflower butter or coconut butter. They might not give you as much protein, but the fat will be there. Also be wary of buying butters at the store and look for brands with low sugar and no artificial preservatives if you can.
These are my 5 go-to Keto snacks. They’re easy to find and are all delicious. What’s your favorite Keto snack? Comment below!
