Organic Snacks to Stock Up Your Pantry

A roundup of certified organic snacks that are perfect for on-the-go snacking and school lunches.

Let’s face it – sometimes you just need snacks.

Whether you’re on-the-go driving kids to sports, heading to the gym straight from work, or dealing with a mid-afternoon slump at your desk – whatever the reason. Better to have something healthy on hand than succumb to the drive-through or junk from the vending machine, right?

So with that in mind, I’ve been keeping tabs on the newest organic snacks for you. Some of these I discovered at the ShiftCon conference – where they had amazing brands ready to talk to us about their products, and others I found through my connection to the Natural Products Expo, where I go to keep on top of the trends in natural food and personal care products.

The cool thing about these snacks is that they are all certified USDA Organic. Other trends I’m seeing in snack foods are added superseeds like hemp and chia, lots of coconut, plant-based pea protein and steering clear of added sugar. Hope you enjoy these organic snacks as much as I do!*

FiggyPops Tart Cherry Supersnacks via mindfulmomma.comFiggy Pops

These Tart Cherry Fig Supersnacks from Made in Nature are the ultimate power snack. A blend of fruit and nuts (figs, cherries, walnuts, cashews), mixed with cocoa nibs, coconut flakes and cinnamon means they are packed full of energy but satisfyingly sweet too.

BARNANA_PEANUT_BUTTERBarnana

If you haven’t tried Barnana yet, run to your nearest Whole Foods or food co-op and buy some immediately. Unless you don’t like bananas. But who doesn’t like bananas? Especially when they are dehydrated and covered in a peanut butter or chocolate coating. They have other flavors too that I haven’t tried yet (coffee, coconut and apple cinnamon), plus a plain version.

  • Fair Trade ingredients
  • Gluten-free
  • Good source of potassium

Nutiva-Organic-O-CoconutO’Coconut

When the sweets craving hits I like to pop one of these lightly sweetened coconut treats for a quick fix. But beware – this could turn into a serious addiction! We burned through two bags in no time flat. Get the Hemp & Chia version for extra goodness in each bite!

Peas Please SouthwestPeas Please

When only salty and crunchy will do, these pea-protein based snacks are healthier than those bright orange fake cheese puffs you were about to grab. Peeled Snacks, known mainly for dried fruit snacks has proven it’s worth in the salty snack department. I recommend the Southwest Spice or Sea Salt flavors!

We know kids don’t need extra sugar but we still want to give them a “special drink” every once in a while. Enter Leaf & Love Organics, with a zero sugar lemonade juice box.

We’re past the juice box phase at our house but I tried some at ShiftCon and I think it tastes delicious and very refreshing!

  1. Love Figgy Pops and O’Coconut. I’ve been meaning to try the banana treats too!

  2. Hi there! What a great post! I loved getting a chance to be a ShiftCon this year and it was definitely a lot of fun trying all of these products!! This is a great way to highlight all those companies and snacks and share them with your readers.

  3. Oh man, these all look so yummy! I am constantly trying to find good, healthy snacks for my kids (and for me!), and I am going to be hunting some of these down!

  4. I’m always looking for healthier snack options for on the run. These look great. If you could only pick one, which is your favorite from the ones listed above?

  5. Tara Brelinsky says:

    These looks delicious and we’re usually looked for healthy snacks to feed our kiddos. I clicked on the link for the figgy pops, but was a little disappointed by the cost. It seems a hefty price when you consider we’re feeding a large family on a tight budget.

  6. OMG those Barnana’s look terrific. Good thing I have the excuse to run out and get them for my son- but let’s be real here…Ill be sneaking them when he’s not looking!

  7. katie chiavarone says:

    This is a fantastic list! I need to look further into these because we are a gluten free household and Im always looking for easy snacks…these look very promising!! Thank you!

  8. Our kids like the Peas Pleese products. We send them in their school lunches.

  9. Shanna Gons says:

    Thanks for the list. Are the Figgy Pops gluten free?

  10. Lisa Sharp says:

    I have enjoyed other pea snacks, I’ll have to try these!
