Amazon stocks almost everything a person could need—which, while amazing, makes it difficult to sort through the not-so-great items to find the healthy diamonds. With that in mind, we’ve done the hard work for you. Here are the best healthy snacks available in the online marketplace—all for under $5. Bon appetit!
Quinn Snacks Kale Popcorn
This popcorn is non-GMO and lightly dusted with kale, which gives it a super-savory, umami kick. The perfect snack to satisfy any salt craving. Quinn Snacks Kale Popcorn ($3.89)
Hope Sriracha Hummus
Hummus is a perfect protein- and fiber-packed snack, and this version has one of the cleanest ingredient lists around—plus, it's high-pressure processed, which preserves far more nutrients than pasteurization. Hope Sriracha Hummus ($3.99)
Yogi Ginger Tea
Yes, tea counts as a snack. Often, feelings of hunger are a result of dehydration or simply the urge to occupy your hands or mouth. Tea will quench your thirst, and, due to its heat, it has to be sipped slowly, giving you something to kill your boredom for some time as well. Bonus points for the stomach-soothing ginger in this one. Yogi Ginger Tea ($2.99)
Dang Caramel Coconut Chips
These coconut chips have just three ingredients: coconut flakes, coconut sugar, and sea salt. The combo strikes a perfect balance of sweet and salty that will satisfy any afternoon hankering. Dang Caramel Coconut Chips ($3.65)
Larabar Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
For less than $5, you get five of these bars, which contain only cashews, dates, chocolate chips, and sea salt but somehow manage to taste just like chocolate chip cookie dough. They're a perfect hit of sweetness with protein and fiber and can conquer any chocolate craving, stat. Larabar Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ($4.69)
Sea's Gift Roasted Seaweed Snack
If you haven't tried seaweed yet, don't worry—the taste is less fishlike and more like the most umami potato chip you've ever had. Seaweed is rich in minerals and super thyroid-supportive, and the delightful crunch will be oh-so-satisfying. Sea's Gift Roasted Seaweed Snack ($0.73)
Beanitos Black Bean Chips
These gluten-free chips have 5 grams of complete protein per serving; a ton of dietary fiber to cleanse your digestive tract and keep you full; and a salty, savory flavor. They're equally good on their own or dipped in salsa or guacamole. Beanitos Black Bean Chips ($2.75)
