The Best Gluten-Free Snacks Under $5
The Best Budget-Friendly Gluten-Free Snacks
Whether you're sensitive to gluten or just trying to generally eat cleaner, it can be tough to know what to choose as a snack. There are tons of gluten-free options out there, but there are almost too many to consider, and most are not exactly wallet-friendly. Luckily, there are plenty of reasonably-priced, gluten-free snacks, if you know where to look and are willing to get a little creative.
Depending on where you get cold cuts, this snack could cost as little as 50 cents a serving! Simply grab some sliced turkey and cheese, then roll it up. Dip in spicy mustard for the full effect. This protein-and-fat, classic combo will keep you feeling full for hours, making it the perfect solution for your afternoon office slump. To step it up, add a serving of veggies like cucumbers as shown here (but rest assured, the old school version is just as good).
(BTW, here are some more healthy high protein snack ideas.)
Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Singles and Veggies
Hummus is the ultimate snack food. Creamy, savory, and incredibly versatile, it just makes everything taste ~better~. While many people favor pita or crackers as dippers, gluten-free folks can try sliced cucumbers, baby carrots, or chopped up bell peppers. And since you can get a whole pack of these single-serve guys for less than $5, you'll be set on snacks for the week.
Apple and Peanut Butter
Apple and PB is one of the most tried-and-true snack options for a reason. It's simple, affordable, and delicious. Of course, it's also conveniently gluten-free. Again, this is super cost-efficient and the exact price will depend on where you buy your produce and peanut butter, but even with a fancy Justin's Natural Classic Peanut Butter Squeeze pack, you're still going to clock in at around $2.50 for the whole snack. That's what we'd call a win.
(Word to the wise: You can save even more cash by making one of these 10 unbelievably delicious nut butters at home.)
Sometimes, you just need a snack that is made for grab-and-go efficiency. Enter: Luna bars. They're gluten-free, come in a ton of different flavors, and are portable enough to fit in any bag. And at less than $1.50 a pop, your bank account won't hate you for developing a *bit* of a Luna bar habit.
(If you have a longer journey in mind, Luna bars also make for the ideal healthy road trip snacks.)
Angie's BOOMCHICKAPOP Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn Popcorn
Was there ever a better mash-up than salty and sweet? We don't think so. This whole-grain, gluten-free, and non-GMO kettle corn is going to be your new BFF whenever you're feeling snacky. Even better, there are seven servings in a bag, so you really get some serious bang for your buck.
