    1. Wholly Guacamole Minis

    2. Bare Organic Apple Chips

    "My clients love the Bare Organic Apple Chips because they’re crunchy, sweet, and satisfying. The only ingredient is apples — as pure as you can get! Apples are often overlooked in terms of their nutritional power. They’re a great source of prebiotic fiber (pectin) and are delicious on their own or paired with some nuts."

    Rachel Beller, MS, RDN, CEO of Beller Nutrition, and creator of Transformation Masterclass

    3. Tillamook Zero Sugar Beef Jerky

    4. Harvest Snaps Green Pea Snack Crisps

    5. Made in Nature: Fruit Fusion Superberry Supersnacks

    6. RXBAR Protein Bars and Lärabars

    7. Nut Butter Banana Roll-Ups

    "This is a super-easy and sweet treat with no added sugar. Each roll-up has 12 grams of fiber, and these tortillas are made from primarily coconut and cassava flour, so they pack 8 grams of fiber. And I love Kirkland almond butter because it is purely made of organic roasted almonds. Here's what you need:

    1 coconut tortilla wrap

    1 tablespoon organic almond butter

    1 banana

    Dash of ground cinnamon

    Warm the tortilla wrap in a toaster oven or on the stove top, then spread with almond butter. Place a peeled banana in the center of the tortilla and roll it up burrito-style. Cut into bite-size pieces and sprinkle with cinnamon, which adds sweetness without any sugar, plus a boost of antioxidants."

    8. SkinnyPop Popcorn

    9. Mini Hummus and Guacamole Cups

    "Choose the guac for a healthy dose of anti-inflammatory fats, or the hummus for a fiber and protein boost — you can’t go wrong with either option. Keep both in your fridge along with ready-to-eat veggies for an easy grab-and-go snack that will keep you satisfied until your next meal."

    Rachel Beller, MS, RDN, CEO of Beller Nutrition, and creator of Transformation Masterclass

    "Aside from all the fresh whole foods at Costco, I love the mini hummus and guacamole cups. They are portioned for a snack and pair well with crackers (I like the RW Garcia Lentil Crackers) or with a bag of mini peppers or carrots. I like that the hummus has protein and fat to keep you full, and the guacamole cups provide satisfying healthy fats."

    10. Nature’s Bakery Fig Bar

    11. Sesame Thins

    12. Kirkland Signature Creamy Almond Butter

    13. Coconut Clusters

    14. Kirkland Signature Organic Roasted Seaweed

    15. Bulk Nuts

    "They're not exactly a packaged snack product, but nuts (and seeds) paired with fresh fruit are one of my top go-to healthy snack combos. Simply put, nuts tend to be pricey, and Costco is the best place to get the most bang for your buck when buying them. It's usually about $12 for a 3-pound bag of walnuts! You definitely won't find that price at a regular grocery store."

    Delilah Bilase, RD, founder of Remedy by Delilah

    16. Balderson Cheddar Cheese and Mary's Gone Crackers

    17. Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds

    Rachel Beller

    "These are a great buy! I’ve been recommending sprouted seeds forever, so it’s exciting to see these at Costco. The sprouting process 'activates' the seeds, making their key nutrients, such as calcium, iron, zinc, and magnesium, more available for our bodies to absorb. Sprouted seeds are also easier to digest. I keep a container of these at my desk for an easy snack, and my clients also like sprinkling them atop salads, oatmeal, crackers with hummus, or nut butter on toast."

    Rachel Beller, MS, RDN, CEO of Beller Nutrition, and creator of Transformation Masterclass

    18. Kirkland Signature Snacking Nuts Variety Pack

    19. Nature's Path Pumpkin Seed & Flax Granola

    20. Kirkland Signature Organic Dried Mangoes

    Rachel Beller

    "Dried mangoes are a delicious, sweet treat, but so many out there are loaded with added sugars and preservatives. Not these from Costco — they’re organic and don't have added sugar or sulfites. A win in my book."

    Rachel Beller, MS, RDN, CEO of Beller Nutrition, and creator of Transformation Masterclass

    21. Kirkland Signature Dry Roasted Almonds

    "These nuts are a great source of a monounsaturated fat, and the fact that they're roasted with sea salt gives them an amazing flavor. A great snack for keto plans!"

    Shelly Marie Redmond, MS, RD, LDN, founder of the KLA Kitchen

    22. Seaweed Snack Quinoa Veg Wraps

    Rachel Beller

    "Here’s a twist on a quick sushi snack using all Costco ingredients. I love these seaweed snacks on their own — they’re crunchy and tasty, plus seaweed is packed with vitamins and minerals like calcium, iodine, and iron. The organic quinoa at Costco is a great value and is one of my pantry staples due to its high protein and fiber content. Combine them with sliced vegetables and you get a savory, crunchy, satisfying snack that delivers on nutrition. Here's what you need:

    ½ cup prepared quinoa

    1 package Organic Roasted Seaweed Snacks

    Sliced vegetables of choice

    Optional: dipping sauce like tamari, soy sauce, or coconut aminos

    Place a spoonful of cooked quinoa on a Seaweed Snack sheet, then add sliced veggie of choice. Gently roll them up and enjoy! (You can dip them in your favorite sauce of choice.)"

    Rachel Beller, MS, RDN, CEO of Beller Nutrition, and creator of Transformation Masterclass

    23. Popcornopolis Nearly Naked Popcorn

    24. That’s It Mini Fruit Bars

    Rachel Beller

    "The name says it: These bars are literally just made out of fruit, without preservatives or other additives. If you don’t have fresh fruit on hand, they’re a solid addition to your snack cabinet. They’re great to throw in a lunch bag or your purse along with some nuts or seeds."

    Rachel Beller, MS, RDN, CEO of Beller Nutrition, and creator of Transformation Masterclass

    25. Simple Mills Almond Flour Crackers and Old World Naturals Antibiotic-Free Roast Turkey Breast

    costco.com, costco.com

    "I pretty much always have this kind of combo on hand at home because it’s a near-perfect snack. This combination is fabulous, as you get the blood sugar–stabilizing benefit of a protein-dominant food (deli turkey) with a slow-digesting carbohydrate (crackers). Then the crackers also provide some fat, making this snack really satisfying as well as super supportive for blood sugar regulation."

    Holly Perkins, BS, CSCS, author of Lift to Get Lean: A Beginner's Guide to Fitness & Strength Training in 3 Simple Steps, and creator of the Nutrition Project

    26. Kirkland Signature Marcona Almonds

    costco.com

    "I've never met a marcona almond I didn't like, but they're usually super expensive. You can buy these salty, buttery, scrumptious Spanish nuts for less at Costco and enjoy them as a filling, satisfying snack!"
