Whether you are in the wilderness or the urban jungle it is nice to have a yummy Low-Carb, Keto-Friendly snack you can count on. Low-Carb Cherry Lime Coconut Chia Crunch Snacks are here for you. Full of nutrients, but not carbs, these satisfying snacks will give you the energy you need for your day.
While I love my Triple Cocoa Coconut Fat Bombs, it is great to have some variety in your life. Truth be told it was hard for me not to make another recipe with chocolate in it, but these tangy snacks are amazing.
While macros are important, they are only part of the story.
Coconut is an amazing food, not only is it a great source of healthy fats, it’s yummy and slightly sweet without too many carbs. These Coconut Chai Crunch Snacks were inspired by the wildly popular Heather’s Choice Packaroons (little dehydrated coconut cookies). Coconut helps fuel and nourish your body, and thousands of people have used Packaroons to fuel their adventures. But if you are fat adapted you may enjoy this lower carb option.
I first became aware of Chia Seeds when I read Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Super Athletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen by Christopher McDougall. The Tarahumara Native Mexican tribe has been using chia seeds to fuel their epic runs for a really long time and more recently these tiny seeds have become super popular in the U.S. as a superfood.
Cherries are a relatively low carb fruit packed with micronutrient and anti-oxidants. They are also delicious.
Citrus makes everything better. A squeeze of lime juice brightens up dishes like curries. Whenever I use the juice of lime or lemon, I try to also add the zest which also contains a ton of flavor. I use this micro grader to zest citrus or finely grate ginger and garlic.
Cardamom, like most spices, contains phytochemicals with amazing health benefits. Most spices are powerful antioxidants as well as great sources for micronutrients. Here is an article by Dr. Axe if you would like to learn more about Cardamom and its health benefits. Health aside, it also tastes great and pairs well with lime and coconut.
High-Quality salts contain electrolytes and trace minerals important for every day healthy. Ketosis and physical activity increase the bodies need for both. Salt also brings out flavors and in general makes things yummier (is that even a word?).
To shape the Low-Carb Cherry Lime Coconut Chia Crunch Snacks I used a #40 scoop and a circle cutter. These tools give you the most uniform appearance but are not necessary. You can use a spoon and your fingers to shape your snacks. I do love scoops and use them in many of my recipes. For more kitchen essentials I use all the time check out my Amazon Store.
