When you find yourself on the brink of a munchie meltdown, resist the trip to the vending machine by having these healthier snacks on hand. Paired with a fruit or vegetable, they’ll keep you full and power you through to your next meal. The best part? They all have a PointsPlus value less than 4. It’s a snack match made in heaven.

Brownie Brittle
Sheila G’s Brownie Brittle
We love these light, chocolatey brownie wafers. Available in chocolate chip, toffee crunch, and traditional walnut varieties, this deep cocoa brittle is the health-conscious chocoholic’s dream come true. The crispy edges are reminiscent of a toasty brownie, but with only 3 PointsPlus values for six generous pieces.
Pair it with: Fresh cherries. Chocolate-covered cherries might be delicious, but they’re not the most Plan-friendly snack. This flavor combo satisfies the craving.
Two packages for $9.95. Available at BrownieBrittle.com
Alouette
Alouette Spreadable Portions
With two grams of protein, these individual cheese squares are a tasty—and filling—savory snack. We love the new Italian herb flavor: creamy, fresh, and bold.

Eight portions for $3.99. Available in grocery stores nationwide.

LaughingCow
Laughing Cow Cream Cheese Spreads
At just 1 PointsPlus value per serving and 1/3 less fat than regular cream cheese, the Laughing Cow’s new Smooth Sensations are a snacker’s delight.

Krave Jerky
This ain’t no Slim Jim. Chewier than other jerkies, Krave packs a protein punch (8 grams!), and comes in unique flavors like garlic chili powder, pineapple orange, and sweet chipotle.
Pair it with: Baby carrots. Paired with the jerky, just a handful of these fiber-packed little guys will keep your hunger at bay for only 2 PointsPlus values. The slight sweetness is a great match for jerky’s smoky flavor.

Lentil Chips
Mediterranean Snacks Baked Lentil Chips
Made from lentils, garbanzo, and adzuki beans, these baked chips are considerably more filling than the greasy alternative. They’re available in a handful of flavors including sea salt and roasted pepper, but we’re partial to the cracked pepper variety, which have a spicy kick. With 4 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber, this 3 PointsPlus value snack will carry you through to dinnertime.
Pair it with: Red bell pepper. Chop up a pepper and top your chips for a mini bruschetta-like snack.
