Everyone loves snacks, but not all snacks are created equal. including chocolate chip cookies and let’s be honest, there is no substitute for the real thing. Unfortunately eating chocolate chip cookies isn’t great for your health and eventually, all of that sugar could lead to health problems and weight gain. 10 years ago there weren’t many healthy options that would satisfy your sugar cravings, but now we have many brands to choose from. Being healthy doesn’t mean you have to give up the good stuff.
1. Lenny & Larry’s The Complete Cookie.
When I first tried this cookie brand I thought it was awful, but turns out I just haven’t tasted the right flavor, and when you find the right one, this brand of cookies is very good. They’re no artificial sweeteners, soy, egg, dairy, non-GMO, and each cookie contains anywhere from 8-16 grams of protein and there’s a cookie for everyone, but with everything you eat, Moderation is key.
2. Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP Light Kettle Corn
If you’re a fan of kettle corn, then this popcorn is a great choice. Only 120 calories per serving, 21g carbs, and 5g of sugar. Whether you sneak this into the theater for your next trip at the movies, or if you just want something healthy at home to snack on, you don’t have to sacrifice any flavor with this awesome snack.
3. HIPPEAS Organic Chickpea Puffs
Can’t forget my vegans and if you aren’t vegan and just want to try something different this is a great snack. The sriracha sunshine flavor is top notch with just the right amount of spice and after you taste this brand you won’t want to eat chips again.
4. Alter Eco Dark Salted Almonds Organic Chocolate
For all my chocolate loves out there. This brand of chocolate has 70% cocoa giving you all of the great antioxidants that are in dark chocolate. Satisfying your sweet tooth without giving anything up.
5. Peeled Snacks Much-Ado-About Mango
Dried fruit is a great option. You can keep them anywhere, at your desk and in your bag while traveling. This brand contains no added sugars or artificial ingredients, but be careful because you will eat the whole bag in one sitting.
