Malaysian healthy snack brands

Snacking is almost a natural instinct. Sometimes we aren’t even hungry but still want something to munch on – think popcorn when watching movies, butter cookies when rushing through assignments, or a pack of crisps while slacking off on the couch. 

Considering how often a spur-of-the-moment snacking session turns into long hours of indulgence, it becomes crucial to snack smartly so that we don’t accumulate unwanted belly fat. 

For a guilt-free snack time, check out these 8 local healthy options with delivery services.

1. Cereals by C.riously

C.riously is no joke when it comes to making healthy cereals. Baked at low temperatures rather than fried, these low-fat Cereals (RM59.80 for 2 boxes) won’t make a big dent in your caloric intake.

Most cereals on the market are coated with artificial syrup and sugar-loaded, but C.riously opts for natural sweeteners to add a delightful sweetness to their cereals without compromising on the taste. Their C.riously Chocolatey is seasoned with cocoa powder whereas C.riously Corny is generously glazed with melted vanilla.

With their customers in mind, these crunchy bites are packed in zip-lock bags so that they aren’t only hassle-free to bring around and munch on-the-go, but also don’t easily turn soggy.

2. Keto Chocolate Cookies by Keto Genius Kitchen

Chocolate cookies are happy pills that lift up our moods. But as much as we don’t want to admit it, they are also carb-laden treats that can easily add numbers on the weighing scale.

If you find yourself constantly in the dilemma of giving in to this chocolatey goodness when trying to cut down carbs, the Keto Chocolate Cookies (from RM25) from Keto Genius Kitchen will be the perfect answer – each piece contains only 1.5g of carbs.

Keto cookies aren’t any different from regular cookies, except their ingredients generally contain fewer carbs and more healthy fats. The cookie dough base replaces regular white flour with almond flour, which serves as a healthier alternative that is also gluten-free.

Additionally, the keto cookies opt for a different approach in the choice of sugar. Instead of white sugar, allulose is used – for the uninitiated, this is a naturally occurring sugar that is lower in calories and diabetic-friendly.

3. Hummus Chips by Amazin’ Graze

We are familiar with hummus being the delectable dip for pita bread, frequently showing up in Middle Eastern food scenes. But now, you can enjoy this nutty-creamy sauce in a new way – in the form of crispy chips.

Made with lentils and chickpeas, each pack of Hummus Chips (RM12.90) from Amazin’ Graze provides the body with approximately 17g of protein and 12g of fibre, making it a nutritious and stomach-filling snack.

Whether you like the original flavour or have the chips sprinkled with additional seasoning, there are Lightly Salted With Sea Salt, Sweet Tomato & Basil, and Thai Chili & Lemongrass to pick from – each is vegan-friendly and gluten-free.

4. Granolas by Kintry

Granola is the sister cousin of cereals. But, instead of plain oats, these munchies incorporate nuts, seeds, and dried fruits, making them a great source of healthy fats and fibre.

Whether you are at home or work, you can count on Kintry for delicious snacks. They offer their granolas in three sizes – mini (60g), regular (200g), and bulk (1kg) – with prices starting from RM4.99.

The Salted Butter Caramel is an irresistibly sweet and salty fusion that features cashew nuts and seeds coated with caramel sauce, sea salt, and butter. No worries if you aren’t a fan of nuts, as you can try their Honey Quinoa, which contains only rolled oats, chia seeds, and protein-rich quinoas.

5. Tempeh Chips by Truly Gourmet

Tempeh is a soy-based product that is made by fermenting soya beans and shaping them into a cake-like form. Though originated in Indonesia, it is a popular ingredient used in our local cooking, especially in Malay cuisines such as tempeh rendang and sambal tempeh.

Truly Gourmet takes this Indonesia’s staple food and gives it a delightful twist, turning it into crunchy Tempeh Chips (RM9.50). Made using non-GMO soya beans, these nourishing chips are packed with protein and can last you through the day. 

Despite the plethora of flavours – such as Sea Salt, Garlic, Cumin, Black Pepper, and Onion – all the chips are crafted without MSG and preservatives. They are also vegan-friendly and gluten-free, catering to a wide range of dietary preferences.

6. Pea Milk by Snappea

When it comes to plant-based milk, the popular trio mentioned often includes soya, almond, and oat milk. While these alternatives have been long-established, Snappea decided to take a leap and enter the market with their pioneering pea milk (from RM14.90).

This non-dairy milk is made from 100% non-GMO peas from Canada. You can take your pick from Utterly Original, Simply Unsweetened, or Richly Chocolate. Like many kinds of milk out there, it is available in a mini carton of 200ml and a regular 1 litre one.

It is natural to feel sceptical about this unfamiliar plant-based milk, but it actually surpasses almond milk in protein content and is cholesterol-free. Each cup further delivers 170mg of calcium to the body.

7. Granolas by Naked Superfood Co

The Granolas (RM13.80) from Naked Superfood Co come with three zeros and no, they are not the unwelcomed exam scores. Rather, they represent zero refined sugar, preservatives, and artificial colourings.

These wholesome baked goods are available in four flavours – Original Honey, Chocolate Hazelnut, Caramel, and Gula Melaka – all seasoned with natural sweeteners.

While granolas and honey make the classic pairing, the Gula Melaka flavour takes on a Malaysian interpretation by incorporating Melaka palm sugar, longan, and goji berries into the mix. Their Chocolate Hazelnut, on the other hand, has a global flair, featuring whole USA hazelnuts and Belgian cocoa nibs.

But, if you’re hankering for a dash of fruity sweetness, opt for their Pistachio Berries Trail Mix (RM14) as it features pistachios, pumpkin seeds, and almonds, along with dried blackcurrants and blueberries, all of which are also great sources of antioxidants. 

Other than the bulk packs of 450g and 500g, these mixes are also available in mini sachets of 25g (RM35 for 10 sachets) for an ideal and easy grab-and-go snack.
