Among Friends Francie’s Cinnamon Sugar Muffin mix is made from whole grain goodness,low in sugar and salt, is gluten free and can be made dairy free and vegan.

As with all of the Enjoy Life product line, Plentils are Top 8 Free so no matter your allergy you are safe snacking on Plentils.
Purely Elizabeth Granola comes in a variety of flavors, my favorites being Blueberry Hemp and Pumpkin Fig. The granola is made with ancient grains, seeds, dried fruit, organic coconut oil, organic coconut sugar and are a great snack when hunger hits you. The granola is made in small batches to preserve taste and freshness and the granola chunks are big enough to pick right out of the bag and pop into your mouth.

Curry Chipotle, Smoked Paprika, and Chili Lime flavors. My favorite is the Chili Chipotle but all three are excellent when you need a quick burst of energy and relief from hunger.
Zego Bars, made with 100% organic ingredients and come in Apple Cinnamon, Fudgy Chocolate and Coconut Ribbon- you can’t go wrong with any of the flavors! Zego Bars are grainless, have 6g complete protein
Veggies and fruit are always the perennial go to snacks. You can’t get any healthier or dairy free than this. Prep your week by cutting up vegetables on Sunday night and placing into snack size bags. I love a combo of carrots, celery sticks, radishes and multi colored pepper slices. Fruit is easy to carry and portable, especially apples.
