100 Gluten Free Snack Ideas

(This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, see my disclosure policy.)

I’ve written about this before because it has been one of the hardest things to adjust to since having a child who is on a gluten free diet. Breakfasts are fairly easy to accomodate as are lunch and supper, but the snacks and treats I run into trouble with.

I need ideas of things that we can grab quickly or bring with us when we go out. Also, Einstein is growing like a weed and like any growing boy, he is hungry almost all of the time!

  1. Your list is great. I struggle with snack too. Tom Sawyer can not manage rice or corn either. I have never tried the avacado with an egg. That should be interesting.
    Blessings, Dawn

    • Not being able to do rice or corn either would be so hard! I don’t know how you manage. The avocado and egg is pretty yummy! You can also add cheese on top if your kids can do dairy.

  2. We love Gratify pretzels. I’ve found them to be less expensive that Glutino.

  3. This is a great list! I’m copying to a document so I can print to hang on the fridge. Thanks!

  4. These are great. I’m always looking for more gluten free snack ideas!

  5. Bananas have a reaction to people with gluten intolerance/celiac a lot of times. Be careful when you make these lists.

  6. A great comprehensive list of gluten free snacks!

  7. Peanut Butter cookies are good too, and packed with protien. Could also be Sugar-free!

    1 Cup Peanut Butter
    1 Cup Sugar or Coconut sugar
    1 egg

    Mix peanut butter and sugar together with hand mixer on low until creamed. Mix in egg. Let chill for 10-15 minutes or until slightly firm. Bake at 350° for 15-30 minutes, let cool on pan for 5 minutes, then transfer carefully unto rack. Enjoy either with milk or all by itself!

  8. My kid won’t eat hardly any of the fruits or veggies so minus the pretzels and puddings there are hardly any options. She hates cheese, raisins, avacados and won’t eat any meat that doesn’t have a crunchy​ breading. This is the pickiest child and now she can’t have gluten and I’m having such a hard time finding things she’ll like, especially non fruit and veggie snacks. Anybody have any additional ideas for me? I’m desperate.

    • I really like pretzels with cream cheese
      I think Snyder’s GF pretzels are the best tasting so I usually use those. I have also tried a variety of different flavors for cream cheese so if there is a certain flavor she likes, I can almost guarantee that it will last good. If she likes nuts and is not allergic, Emerald makes a variety of different almond and nut blend flavors. They are so good and most are gluten free. The peanut butter chocolate ones are my favorite and the cocoa roast ones! Hope this helps!
