A nutritious medley of kale, beans, sweet potato, carrots, broccoli, spinach, and more is magically transformed into these crunchy, salty chips. But don’t worry, they taste nothing like a bowl full of greens—one tester likened their texture to fried wontons, but healthier! Just one ounce contains a full serving of vegetables, so you’ll feel virtuous digging in when the munchies strike (but still be sure to eat your actual veggies too!). ($3 per 4.5-ounce bag;

Inspired by the tasty, crispy leftovers in the pan after scrambling eggs, these airy chips are made with all-natural ingredients, including egg whites and corn, through a patent-pending “Pressure-Puff” process. This gluten-free snack more protein (7g per serving!) than regular potato chips. Plus, they’re available in four delicious flavors: sea salt and black pepper, barbeque, white cheddar, and cinnamon sugar if you're looking to satisfy your sweet tooth. ($1.29 per 1-ounce bag;

Light, crunchy, and completely craveable, testers found these chips to be so addictive that we had to stop ourselves from inhaling the entire bag. Fortunately, this quinoa-based snack truly fills you up with a whopping 9g plant-based protein per serving, so portion control is practically built in. The barbeque, cheddar, sea salt, and sour cream and onion flavors were all pleasing without being in-your-face overwhelming. ($3.19 each or $32 for 12 bags;

Rethinking your afternoon snack routine is a snap with “super grain” chips, made with non-GMO corn and nutritionally rich ingredients like quinoa, amaranth, and pea protein. Testers noted they’re a bit thicker than other picks, with tempting flavors including exotic jalapeno lime, spicy nacho, and smoky-sweet barbeque. Though some bags contained fragments rather than full chips, if you’re okay with smaller pieces (less risk of double dipping!), they’d be equally as tasty with hummus, salsa, or guac as they are on their own. ($3.5 per 5.5-ounce bag;

These sprouted-grain, gluten-free tortilla chips are bursting with antioxidant-full ingredients like flaxseed, quinoa, brown rice, and even chia seeds. With at least 17g whole grains in each serving, it’s no surprise these have a somewhat grainy texture, but the mouthwatering flavors are what kept us going back for more. Testers loved the variety from tangy mustard onion to spicy sweet chili—all of which are great solo or with your favorite dip. ($21 for 6 5.5-ounce bags;
