100 Best Grocery Store Gluten Free Dairy Free Snacks


100 Best Grocery Store Gluten Free Dairy Free Snacks

Are you a family like us? Do you have a few different health things going on and need some ideas for quick gluten-free and dairy-free snacks? Because I feel you.

Having gluten sensitivity myself and mama to five kids, one of who has Celiac disease, we have to have some snack options. And we want them to be tasty snacks! As well as making sure these options taste good for people with food allergies!

My aunt has dealt with Celiac disease for many, many years now. (Including having to be on a dairy-free diet as well.) She has shared with me how hard it was early on to find options that were safe for her. However, many local grocery stores have at least a few gluten-free (GF) and dairy-free (DF) options now.

Gluten Free Dairy Free Snack Options at the Grocery Store

Some healthy snacks that are easy to find at the grocery store are fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, as well as packaged varieties. Gluten-free dairy-free crackers with dip or nuts/ trail mix can even keep picky eaters happy. If that seems too limiting, I’ll cover even more ideas below with exact links for the perfect snack. As well as plenty of options that are easy for grab and go DF GF school snacks or if you need packaged foods for road trips.

Disclaimer: It is CRITICALLY IMPORTANT that you double-check labels when choosing gluten-free dairy-free snacks from this list.

  • This is not medical advice. Therefore, please always consult your doctor or medical professional.
  • Make sure to read the actual labels and nutrition facts. Manufacturers can make changes to ingredients over time. I would hate to have you deal with issues due to changes or cross-contamination. It is always a best practice to double-check nutrition labels to make sure it fits your personal dietary restrictions.
  • I know “healthy” can be a subjective word. What I may consider healthy may not be 100% perfect for you, and that’s ok for us to see differently on some things. I just hope this list can be helpful to you in finding healthier options that work for your dietary needs.
  • There may be other allergens you need to stay away from that are on this list. Like I said earlier, please read the food label and follow the advice of your healthcare provider. When my daughter got her official Celiac diagnosis, a nutritionist came and explained what a gluten-free diet entails. I hope you have also gotten clear instructions for your family.

Fresh Fruit and Vegetables

All fresh fruit and vegetables are naturally gluten-free and dairy-free, which makes them great healthy snack ideas.

Some of our favorites are:

  • Fruit: Apples, berries, grapes, bananas, mandarins/ oranges are easy for on the go.

Dipping fruit into some almond butter or other nut butter can be a great snack.

  • Veggies: Cucumbers, carrots, peppers, green beans, broccoli, cherry tomatoes. We like to dip veggies in hummus.

Prepared Fruit And Vegetables

  • Dried fruit: Pineapple, dried raisins, mango, and dried cranberries are some of our favorite dried fruit to snack on.

Or here is a basic recipe for how to make your own fruit leathers. We use a food dehydrator when making ours with simple ingredients, but they can also be made in the oven. Making homemade food is a great way to reduce added sugars from things like fruit snacks.

Some more options are:

Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Crackers or Rice Cakes

There is a wide variety of gluten-free dairy-free safe crackers.

Gluten Free Dairy Free Crackers:

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Grahm Crackers:

  • Schar – Honeygrams: Our favorite type of GF DF graham cracker, I have found them at Walmart.
  • Kinnikinnick S’moreables: This brand’s graham crackers are very thick. Not great for smores in my experience but good for making a pie crust.
  • Partake’s Classic Grahams: are a top 9 allergen free graham cracker that I think is the best options for making great s’mores with some dairy free chocolate. I found them at Target.

Rice Crackers:

  • Tropical Fields Organic Crispy Coconut Rolls. Now this one isn’t technically a rice cake but the crunchy rollers reminded me of them, and they are sooooo good. If you shop at Costco, they are usually there for a better price.

We enjoy gluten-free dairy-free crackers or rice cakes with guacamole (here is a recipe, homemade is the best in my opinion), hummus, or nut butter.

Gluten-free and Dairy-Free Chips or Rice Chips and Pretzels

Tortilla Chips:

Speaking of Seite, please find these!

  • Siete Grain Free Cinnamon Churro Strips are delicious snacks. They are made with cassava flour, avocado oil, coconut sugar, agave syrup, pumpkin powder, cinnamon, psyllium husk powder, sea salt, and vanilla powder.

Potato Chips:

Kettle Brand Potato Chips Our family prefers the great crunch of a kettle-type potato chip.

They are certified GF and the packaging makes no mention of being made on shared equipment with dairy products. If you would like to verify with them, you can reach out to their customer service.

Some other flavors are:

Many other brands of original flavors or even some different flavors of chips are also gluten-free and dairy-free, for example, Lay’s Classic Potato Chips doesn’t have any problematic ingredients in their ingredient list. But if I listed every option possible, this post would be annoying to read.

Rice Chips:

Sweet Potato Chips:

Whenever I think of sweet potatoes, I think of garlic aioli. I usually make some from scratch but here is a good brand. Primal Kitchen Garlic Aioli Mayo made with Avocado Oil



Synder’s also has pretzel sticks and pretzel rods. (The pretzel rods can be used to make an alternative to a gingerbread house by making a Christmas log cabin!)

Glutino makes pretzel sticks too as well as has snack packs for easy school lunch packing.

I haven’t personally tried these but friends have and like them. It’s always nice to have a grain-free and nut-free option too.

  • Quinn has gluten-free dairy-free pretzels that have many flavors including a

(Please note that not every flavor is dairy free. But this variety pack of snack packs is listed as dairy free as well as gluten-free.)

Plantain Chips:

I usually get the Trader Joe brand of plantain chips but when writing this post, I came across these from Amazon Prime.

Side note, I provide links for you to check out the ingredient list yourself. As well as for you to know what to look for on the shelf of your local grocery store. I personally don’t often order chips from Amazon because the prices can really high. I like to shop around for the best price so I encourage you to do the same.

variety of bowls with hummus and chickpeas in them as an option of gluten free dairy free snacks

Gluten Free Dairy Free Dip and Sauces

Now that we have talked about chips I can’t help but think of dips.

Hummus: There are so many brands and varieties!

I really haven’t met a hummus I don’t like but if you can find the time, making it homemade takes it up a couple of flavor notches!


There are lots of different varieties and flavors when it comes to salsa. Check out your local farmers market when they are in season and grab a jar of locally made salsa, I’m sure you’ll be pleased!

It goes great with Mexican dishes too. We tend to eat a lot of Mexican/Tex-Mex homemade recipes. For example, this Instant Pot Mexican Chicken is so simple for a busy weeknight.

Granola bars

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Energy Bars or Protein Bars

Larabar has a wide of gluten-free and vegan flavors.

These three are some of my favorite Larabars.

Freshly Made Gluten Free Dairy Free Smoothies or Smoothie Bowls

It is hard to share links to grocery store options for smoothie packs, since they need to be frozen to transport. But be on the look out for these options or similar choices.

Basically you need some frozen fruit, (maybe some greens, vegetables or leafy greens) dairy-free milk of your choice (like almond milk, oat milk or water), and a good blender.

If you want some smoothie recipes to make at home, this post should have you covered!

bowl of popcorn

Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Popcorn

I find that popcorn is always a great snack option. Weather homemade or store bought, it usually has a few simple ingredients that are easy to change up to avoid major allergens.

Popcorn is a great option for gluten-free snacks. It is a whole grain and naturally gluten-free. And depending on your topping, you can make it dairy free.

Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Trail Mix + Nuts

Trail Mix

Nuts and Seeds

Nuts and seeds are naturally gluten and dairy free but you’ll want to check the nutrition label for any cross-contamination from the production of the product.

If you can get them whole and use a nutcracker, there is less chance that they have gone rancid in the packaging.

Some of our favorite nuts and seeds are:

Flavored Nuts and Mix

Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Chocolate or Sweet Snacks

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Sweet Snacks for the Sweet Tooth

​Our personal favorite dairy free (DF) and gluten free (GF) chocolate is

Lindt CLASSIC RECIPE OatMilk Chocolate Candy Bar: It makes fantastic s’mores! I find it at Walmart, Publix and Food Lion.

They also have these other delicious flavors:

More gluten-free chocolate and dairy-free chocolate for late night snacking:

Dairy Free and Gluten Free Donuts and Cupcakes

And because I know this is a common question:

Are Oreos gluten-free?

Regular Oreos are not gluten-free but they do make a gluten-free version that is also dairy-free. You can find them here on Amazon.

(Oreos don’t contain dairy in the regular or gluten-free versions.)

Dairy-Free Gluten-Free Cookies

Dairy-Free Gluten-Free Ice Cream

Gluten Free Dairy Free Sourdough Bread

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Bread

Bread with different jams or spreads can make a great healthy snack.

The best gluten-free dairy-free bread (IMO) is Schar.

I also make gluten-free dairy-free sourdough bread with King Arthur Flour here! (As pictured above.)

Dairy-Free Gluten-Free Yogurt Alternatives

The above-listed yogurt alternatives are linked through Amazon to Whole Foods delivery. I always suggest shopping around locally but give links so you can check the nutrition label and see what the product looks like.

Gluten Free Dairy Free Meat/ Protein Options for Easy Snacks

Hard Boiled Eggs: I like to use hard-boiled eggs in multiple ways. Egg salad, deviled eggs (not just for holidays!) and sliced on top of avocado toast.

Paleovalley 100% Grass Fed Garlic Summer Sausage Beef Sticks

Chomps Snack Size Grass-Fed and Finished Original Beef Jerky Snack Sticks

Lorissa’s Kitchen Meat Snack Packs, Grass-Fed Beef Jerky Stick

    • Joanna February 16, 2023 at 8:49 pm

      Thank you! Yes, Whole 30 can definitely be tough to implement without some snacks for energy emergencies!

  • Brad MacAonghais February 16, 2023 at 9:22 pm

    Very helpful! We have a 4 year old with dairy issues that are very pronounced that we diagnosed ourselves. He goes to a montessori school for another year and they’re always getting us to send in things to supplement what they’re providing as the unfortunately don’t have a lot of dairy free options. Very nice list to put on our fridge!

    • Joanna February 16, 2023 at 9:29 pm

      I totally feel for you and her! My second born that has Celiac was also in a Montessori based preschool when we first were trying to implement a gluten free diet for her. It can be a challenge but I’m glad this can be a resource for you!
