Gluten Free Snacks That Are Not Worth Buying
When you find yourself in a position to have to go both dairy free and gluten free, finding the right snacks can be hard. You can easily buy gluten free dairy free snacks from places like Amazon but if you check the ingredient lists you realize that most of them have a lot of unnecessary crap in them.
Store bought gluten free dairy free snacks are usually full of added sugars, vegetable oils, additives, or dyes, meaning – low in nutrients and high in toxins. Therefore, whenever is possible I always opt for real whole food with real fiber, vitamins and antioxidants.
It might be time consuming but with a little bit of planning it can be done. So when I came up with these healthy gluten free dairy free snacks recipes, I wanted them to be packed with nutrients, simple to make, vegan and sugar free.
Healthy Gluten Free Dairy Free Snacks
I consider them healthy because these snacks are:
- Made with wholesome ingredients;
- These snacks have protein and fiber and healthy fats which means they will keep you full and satisfied until your next meal;
- Complex carbs to keep you energized, and packed with vitamins and minerals;
- They are allergy friendly: dairy free, sugar free, gluten free, nut free and egg free.
Dairy Free And Gluten Free Snacks On A Toast
Since I can’t have processed foods, gluten or dairy in my diet, I needed healthier snack alternatives. I had to get creative because for me, toast is my go-to snack. It’s quick to prepare, keeps me full and prevents me from binging on other unhealthy foods. So here are some of my favorite ways to top a toast:
1. Beat And Bean Hummus On Rice Crackers
This hummus has a bright red color which comes from beets. As a base I used black eyed beans instead of chickpeas, and finished it with a sprinkle of pumpkin and sunflower seeds.
2. Eggplant Caponata On Rice Cakes
Here I just roasted the eggplant and the bell peppers separately and then I chopped all ingredients and added a little bit of tanginess you can serve this as a salad, on a cracker, on a toast or a rice cake.
3. Roasted Acorn Squash
This is probably the easiest healthy snack to make, you just need a little patience while the acorn squash is roasting in the oven. Then you can use it the same day or refrigerate for another 2 days (see recipe and video below).
I usually see people topping their toast with fruits, but I prefer to eat fruits separately in order to avoid a delayed digestion and fermentation in the gut. So my main focus here are savory snack options.
In one of my previous posts I presented my gluten, dairy, sugar, egg, yeast free bread recipe and I enjoyed it so much that I had to share a few healthy gluten free / dairy free snack recipes to savor it:
4. Gluten And Dairy Free Carrot Avocado Toast
Sliced gluten free bread (my homemade recipe) topped with homemade hummus (presented in the video below), avocado slices, grated carrot and sunflower sprouts. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper according to your taste.
5. Gluten And Dairy free Mushroom Toast
Sliced gluten free bread (recipe) topped with hummus, sauteed mushrooms, onions and fresh scallions. The nutty, earthy flavor of caramelized mushrooms pairs well with the creaminess of hummus. This makes a great appetizer, awesome snack, and amazing breakfast!
5. Gluten Free Sauerkraut Toast
The gluten free slice of bread smeared wth pumpkin seed butter, avocado slices and red cabbage sauerkraut. The texture and flavor contrasts are brilliant, the tanginess of sauerkraut pairs beautifully with creamy avocado and the crunchy toast. Another bonus is that raw sauerkraut is a rich source of vitamins C & K (more than white cabbage) and also rich in probiotics – great for your immune system and gut health.
Red/Purple Hummus And Tomato Toast
Here the gluten free toast it topped with hummus, cherry tomatoes, and some sunflower sprouts. This purple color of hummus comes from red sauerkraut juice that I mixed in. This gives a perfect amount of sour – enough to please the sour-chasing crowd.
