11 Low-Sugar and Sugar-Free Snacks That Taste Great

From candy and ice cream to protein bars and cereal, this list covers it all.

We love sugar just as much as the next person, but if you’ve ever eaten too many sweets in a day, you’d know it’s not a great feeling. You’re all jittery one second and super sleepy the next. Ever heard the term “sugar crash?” Yeah, that’s the feeling. Well, whether you’re looking to cut down your sugar intake for personal reasons or medical needs, we’re here for you! To make your life easier, we’ve created this list of 11 low-sugar and sugar-free snacks that taste great.

Three Wishes Cereal

Let’s kick things off with a breakfast staple! Three Wishes makes vegan, gluten-free cereal with lower sugar and higher protein than the leading box of Os. Using chickpeas as a base, with a few other simple ingredients (like monk fruit), Three Wishes makes delicious flavors that range from 0g to 3g of sugar.

No Cow Vegan Protein Bars

With just 1g of sugar, 20-22g of protein, and 13-18g of fiber per serving, No Cow makes some of the cleanest vegan protein bars on the market! All of the drool-worthy flavors—including Birthday Cake, S’mores, Sticky Cinnamon Roll, Blueberry Cobbler, and more—are vegan, gluten-free, kosher, and soy-free. Oh, and did you know that No Cow just dropped a line of chocolate-dipped bars?

GoodSam Chocolate Candy Coated Peanuts

Looking for a vegan, low-sugar alternative to M&Ms? GoodSam to the rescue! This sustainable vegan snack brand offers a variety of goodies that are organic, fair trade, and regeneratively grown. Their Chocolate Candy Coated Peanuts, which contain less than 1g of sugar per serving, give off the same nostalgic Peanut M&M vibes without all of the harmful ingredients or added sugars! GoodSam makes almond and cashew versions as well.

Project 7 Gummies

Most gummy candy is not only loaded with unnecessary sugar but also contains gelatin, which is an animal derivative. At Project 7, those worries are a thing of the past. This brand makes a plethora of fruity, sour, chewy, and delicious candies that are vegan, low-sugar, low-calorie, and high-fiber. From Gummy Bears, Sour Worms, and Apple Rings to Original Licorice and Gummy Guppies, Project 7 has all of the iconic childhood candies covered. We love them all, but the Gummy Bears have a special place in our hearts.

EZER Snacks Edible Protein Cookie Dough

Are you one of those people who prefers snacking on cookie dough raw instead of baking it? We feel you—and so does EZER Snacks! This family-owned vegan, gluten-free food brand offers edible protein cookie dough in the flavors of Birthday Party, Chocolate Chip, and Oatmeal Raisin. At 3-4g of sugar per serving, these spoonable treats will give you all of the cookie dough vibes you desire without the dreaded sugar crash.

Some granola can be deceiving when it comes to the amount of sugar added. Lakanto’s Keto Granola is a wonderful sugar-free take on the crunchy snack in berry, chocolate, and cinnamon almond varieties.

Tofu Tikkā Recipe

Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
