Low Calorie Gluten-free Snacks

Low Calorie Gluten-free Snacks

Just like any other free from snacks, gluten-free snacks can be easily turned into low calorie bites that you can enjoy anytime of the day.

Gluten, a protein found in wheat flour, is what gives structure to baked goods. It gives breads, muffins, and cakes their soft spongy texture. To create any kind of low calorie gluten-free snacks, you'll need to use other thickeners like xanthan gum or guar gum in your baking.


Low Calorie Gluten-free Snacks

Start with recipes that use relatively small amounts of wheat flour like brownies or pancakes. Gluten-free versions taste almost the same as their wheat-based cousins.

Favourite Low Calorie, Gluten-free Snack Base

As you may have realised, most of my snack bases are a combination of almond flour, oat flour, baking powder and free from flour which creates an amazing mixture to achieve a light, fluffy snack base. The key to get that low calorie, gluten-free snack base is to get the amount right of each ingredient depending on which snack you want to prepare.
