New year, renewed commitment to trying keto (again). The low-carb, high-protein diet isn’t so bad…except for missing out on all those carb-y snacks and desserts. We’ve got just the fix. Introducing Fat Snax, purveyor of keto-friendly (and delicious) crackers, cookies and brownies.
High-fat, low-carb ingredients like almond flour, butter and coconut flour are used in all Fat Snax products, so they’re filling and tasty without knocking you out of ketosis. Each snack or treat only has .3 to 3 net carbs each. They’re also all grain- and gluten-free, as well as pretty modest in calories despite their full-fat ingredients. Each cookie contains 90 to 100 calories a pop, as well as 1 to 2 grams of fiber and 2 to 3 grams of protein. Better yet, they’re all sugar-free. The crackers are 130 calories a serving and boast 5 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber and 0 grams of sugar. As appealing as that sounds, we’ve all been burned by diet-friendly treats that make us regret snacking altogether. So, after hearing the buzz behind Fat Snax—fans call its cheese crackers “keto Cheez-Its”—we had to see if the line lived up to the hype.
Fat Snax are available online (save 10 percent by ordering a recurring subscription) and at a handful of retail stores like Whole Foods, Kroger and Market Basket. The products are a bit on the pricy side compared to standard cookies and crackers (it comes out to $1.12 a cookie and $1.70 per serving, respectively), but it’s worth it if you’re on a low-carb diet and your usual snacks are off limits. Take a gander at our honest review before filling up your cart.
