14 Easy Keto Snacks List for Beginners


Avocados are a perfect choice because they are a full meal, so they are really simple to consume “as it is.” Only apply a little salt and pepper and you are golden. Perhaps also put a little bit of olive oil and sea salt in the middle.

2-Pork Rinds

You can eat pork rinds as a stand-alone low-carb snack, or dip them into fun things like Taco Bell Hot Sauce. if you eat 20 plain pork rinds, you get about 100 calories and 0 net carbs.


Sardines not only supply a healthy dose of fat and other nutrients but also they are zero carbs. Dr. Dominic D’Agostino strongly suggests sardines.

4-Kale Chips

Be sure to have no added sugars when buying kale chips. Or, you can use coconut oil, lard, or ghee to make them yourself.


Olives are a great keto-snack when you need something savory, indulgent, and pop-able. I eat them plain right out of the jar. Just ensure they were not mixed in oils other than olive oil.


The pickle is the guaranteed snack king among keto eaters. To give them some caloric oomph, dip your pickles in a ranch dressing or eat them with a fork right out of the jar.

7-Macadamia Nuts

The macadamia nuts are one of the most keto-friendly nuts packed with healthy fats and necessary nutrients. But be careful because they can be super easy to over-consume.

8-String Cheese

String cheese favored by children but delicious to adults like me too, it is convenient because it comes wrapped individually and does not leave any residue on your fingers.

9-Nuts or Nut Butters and Seeds

Recall that some nuts are relatively high in carbs (such as cashews, peanuts, and pistachios). Stay away from any nut butter that has added vegetable oils or polyunsaturated oils.

Choose nuts higher in fat, like almonds, pecans, or macadamia nuts, and seeds high in omega-3 such as chia and flaxseed.

10-Beef Jerky

These are fast keto snacks, perfect for road trips and hiking, the beef jerky is a low-calorie snack that’s suitable when you’re snacking mostly to relieve boredom and feeling complete and happy. Make sure the nutrition labels to find low sugar beef jerky with less than 5 net carbs per bag.

11-Fat Bombs

Fat bombs are the bomb! Not only are they super easy to make but their low-carb, high-fat content is great for avoiding a blood sugar spike. Try this Peanut Butter Fat Bombs recipe it’s very delicious. Store in the freezer right after making it, then keep it cool in the travel cooler until it’s ready to eat.

12-Keto Chips

There are lots of options to make keto chip substitutes, from radishes to kale to cheese. Make your personal keto chips from cheddar cheese. Bake in a dish till crispy, then cut into chip-sized triangles.

13-Hard-Boiled Eggs

Will you need a high protein before or during a workout? Consider hardboiled eggs as a keto snack. Use salt, pepper, hot sauce, or Sriracha sauce to add flavor and pleasure.


Tiny quantities of fresh or frozen berries are okay from time to time, but too many of them will take you out of ketosis. The best options for keto are blackberries and raspberries. Blueberries carbs can add up quickly.
