Who doesn’t love a good crunchy snack?! I know I do, and I know many of you do too. In fact, most of the emails I receive from readers can be placed in two basic buckets: “I miss sugary foods” (I’ve got ya covered here) and “I miss crunchy foods” (I’m about to fix that with this post).

I won’t waste a lot of time blathering on… I know you want to get to the keto snacks! I’ve divided this post into “no recipe needed” snacks and “recipe needed” snacks. Even when a recipe is needed, I’ve made sure to include EASY recipes. There is nothing complicated here!

Keto Crunchy Snacks

Crunky Keto Snacks #1: Lakanto Cinnamon Almond Crunch Granola

Lakanto recently released Keto Cinnamon Almond Crunch Granola with only 4g net carbs per generous 1 cup serving, and let me tell you… this stuff might be the best keto food I’ve ever tasted. I can’t even believe that it’s sugar-free, let alone keto! It reminds me of a Cinnamon Toast Crunch-flavored granola and it’s better than any sugary granola I’ve ever eaten.

Low Carb Crunchy Snacks (#2): Pork Rinds

Pork rinds are the classic go-to crunchy keto snack! They may not be a food you naturally gravitate toward when you’re not on keto, but when you’re on keto, they’re kind of irresistible. They’re even better when dipped in mayo, ranch dressing, or another keto-friendly dip. I tend to buy the economical Utz brand in the large 18 oz. tubs. Artisanal brands like Epic are absolutely fabulous, but they’re so pricey that I consider them an occasional treat.

Pork rinds are also used in some pretty amazing keto recipes like this Keto Ritzy Chicken Casserole and Keto Chicken Alfredo Casserole.

#3: Celery

Much like pork rinds, I think celery is kind of take-it-or-leave-it off keto, but on keto, it is a crunchy and slightly salty snack that you may find yourself actually craving! It’s good plain for the crunch factor, or you can fill it with some nut butter. For a serious double crunch, fill it with unsweetened crunchy almond butter.

#4: Dill Pickles

Dill pickles are also a source of a fun-and-salty keto crunch. I had been purchasing dill pickle spears, but a reader recently turned me on to baby dill pickles. They’re great too! I highly recommend the 365 (Whole Foods) brand or Vlasic “Purely Pickles” line for the best ingredient profile (no iffy ingredients like Polysorbate 80 and Yellow 5).

#5: Macadamia Nuts

Macadamia nuts aren’t the cheapest nuts out there, but they are SUPER crunchy if you get the right brand, like MacFarms. Plus, they’re extremely low in carbs (only 1g net carbs per serving). If you want to crunch away on nuts without taking in a bunch of carbs, macadamia nuts are the way to go! (Almonds, by contrast, have 3g net carbs per serving.)

#6: Radishes

I feel like radishes are one of keto’s best-kept vegetable secrets. One cup of sliced radishes contains only 2g net carbs, and they are so versatile! When served raw, they are peppery and oh-so-crunchy. (I like to slice them as in the photo above or halve them.) You can also roast them and make radish chips.

If you like radishes be sure you try these fabulous keto radish recipes.

#7: Cheese and Egg White Protein Crisps

If you want a grab-and-go cheese crisp (rather than making some from a recipe), these HighKey Cheese and Egg White Protein Crisps fit the bill. The added egg white (clever!) lends a protein boost and extra crunch. You can choose from four different flavors or buy the variety pack. I like all of them, but I am partial to the bacon flavor.
