I’ve rounded up some of the healthiest packaged foods on the planet—many of which are offered on your favorite site to shop.

Nourish Snacks Chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola Bites
These mini granola bites come packed with indulgent cocoa and creamy peanut butter, as well as plant-based protein and fiber. You’ll also get a heart-healthy dose of omega-3s coming from the crunchy chia seeds!
Go Raw Sprouted Flax Snax
Raw flax crackers, made from simple ingredients such as flax seeds and spices, are naturally gluten-free and rich in omega-3s. I’m a big fan of the snack and suggests topping them off with some sliced avocado (or how I eat them is just as is).
Pure Organic Peanut Butter Chocolate Ancient Grain and Nut Crispy Bar
With hints of both sweet and salty, this organic, gluten-free snack hits the spot no matter what you’re craving. Not to mention, I LOVE and you’ll love that these clusters are made from a combination of mostly ancient grains and peanuts with just a touch of honey for sweetness.
Think of this as a grown-up Fruit Roll-Up made solely of fruit puree and added vitamin C for freshness. Some of the varieties have spices or coconut shavings for added texture and flavor, but none of the add-ins raise any nutritional red flags. Pair a package with a small handful of almonds or walnuts to add some protein and additional fiber to your snack-time lineup.
Paleta Power Up Energy Bars
Many “energy” bars often translate to “high-sugar” bars—they’re basically candy bars on steroids. That’s why I’m excited to find a product that delivers on both the nutritional and the flavor front. Paleta bars are vegan and gluten-free and deliver a good dose of protein and fiber. While some of these flavors I liked. I didn’t like Coconut Cacao Cashew Bar.
Skip your morning supplements and dig into a bag of Peeled Snacks’ dried fruit instead. They contain no added sugars or artificial ingredients—just fruit! That’s how each bag winds up carrying such high amounts of vitamins! One bag of the Much-Ado-About-Mango flavor, for example, carries 30 percent of the day’s vitamin A and 20 percent of the day’s vitamin C.
I Heart Keenwah Chocolate Quinoa Clusters
Quinoa isn’t just for your dinner plate anymore. Breakfast quinoa bowls and snacks made with the super-grain are both big trends right now. I (kinda) love that this bite-sized snack is wholesome and free of scary additives, yet tastes like sugary chocolate granola clusters. They even have an addictive crunch!
Justin’s Nut Butter Mini Peanut Butter Cups, Dark Chocolate
Although candy shouldn’t be your go-to snack, I won’t fault you for noshing on a little something sweet to get you through the day. But if you’re going to indulge, you may as well do so without ingesting nasty chemicals and loads of sugar. If you love Justin’s nut butters, then you’re going to go ga-ga for these pint-sized peanut butter cups. Their tiny size means that calories and sugar stay at a low. Nuts for nut butter?
Luna Bar Nutz Over Chocolate
If you’re craving some chocolate but struggle with portion control, try noshing on these nutty dark chocolate Luna bars. They clock in at 200 calories and 3 grams of fiber per pop!
Organic Mini Perfect Bar
These mini-sized bars. She frequently turns to them as a quick, protein pick-me-up after spin classes and workouts. They basically taste like pure nut butter with a bit of a chewy crunch but somehow the makers of this truly delicious snack manage to sneak in things like kale and papaya. If I didn’t tell you, you wouldn’t be the wiser.
Quest Nutrition Protein Chips
Quest’s delicious, protein-filled chips—which come in flavors like cheddar and sour cream—will tingle your taste buds without blowing your diet. One individual snack bag can even serve as a savory on-the-go replacement for a post-workout protein shake. Before you laugh us off, you should know I have two big reasons to back up our claim: The salt can help replace electrolytes lost after a sweaty workout, and one bag serves up as much protein as a 2.5-ounce chicken breast. Made from dried potatoes, a blend of milk protein and whey protein isolate, and a generous amount of seasonings, this crunchy snack is sure to put your sad bag of Lay’s to shame.
The New Primal Beef Thins
To make their signature jerky, The New Primal uses grass-fed beef that’s full of healthy omega-3s and CLA. CLA, or conjugated linoleic acid, isn’t as present in grain-fed cattle because the CLA comes directly from the grass. This fatty acid contains a group of chemicals that provide a wide variety of health benefits, including improved blood sugar regulation, maintenance of lean body mass, and reduced body fat.
Yes, the name Moon Cheese is a bit odd, but I promise that this out-of-this-world snack (pun intended) is a healthy pick. The makers of this healthy snack use a patented technology that allows them to suck the moisture from their cheese without stripping away its natural nutrition or flavor. Because they don’t add anything thing else to the mix before packaging it up, it’s hard to go wrong snacking on these savory treats.
Nothin’ But Granola Cookies
With just 3.5 grams of the sweet stuff in each cookie, this sensible treat is sure to fit into just about anyone’s weight loss or fitness plan.
Wonderfully Raw Organic Vanilla Maple Coco-Roons
Made from a blend of unsweetened coconut, almond flour, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and salt, these mini macaroons are the perfect way to indulge your sweet tooth without blowing a day’s worth of carbs.
Made with just eight whole-food ingredients, this tasty, low-sugar cereal is one you can feel good about noshing on. Measure out a cup, toss it in a baggie, and bust it out next time your stomach starts to growl between meals.
Hail Merry Dark Chocolate Bites
A “guilt-free chocolate treat” is basically the stuff of marketing mythology, but these cute little snacks come as close as possible to that concept. The rich, two-bite treats are made with whole food ingredients like cocoa and coconut oil. These snack bites may become your new chocolatey addiction, and I’m totally not judging!
