High-Protein Snacks for a Diabetes-Friendly Diet

Pistachio & Peach Toast

Ricotta cheese leftovers are perfect for this breakfast, which also comes together in about 5 minutes.

Easy Black Bean Dip

This delicious bean dip is perfect for a picnic or party. If you don't have smoked paprika or ground chipotles on hand, you may substitute plain paprika and cayenne for the earthy taste they impart.

Tahini-Yogurt Dip

Serve the smooth yogurt dip with whole-wheat pita triangles, sliced radishes, or baby carrots.

Tuna Salad Spread

In place of mayonnaise, this tuna spread dish substitutes Greek yogurt and avocado for a healthier version of tuna salad. Serve it with whole-grain crackers, cucumber slices, or butter lettuce leaves.

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Banana Smoothie

This sweet, creamy drink recipe combines frozen bananas, peanut butter, and chocolate to deliver all the mouthwatering tastes of a milkshake with the nutritional advantages of a smoothie.

Breakfast Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cakes

These oatmeal cakes' main component, peanut butter, adds taste as well as a boost of plant-based protein. A fun method to make sure that peanut butter is in every mouthful is to bury a little amount of it in the middle of each muffin.

Peanut Butter & Pomegranate Toast

Just choose the genuine deal—fresh fruit—to get all the flavor of a traditional PB&J without the extra sugar. You still get some natural sweetness, enough juiciness to counteract the stickiness of peanut butter, and more fiber. 

Pizza Pistachios

These fun spiced pistachios have a pizza-like flavor thanks to nutritional yeast, which tastes like cheese.

Hard-Boiled Egg & Almonds

This little snack is nutrient-dense and makes eating healthy deliciously simple. It is packed with protein, heart-healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals.

Coconut-Cashew Breakfast Bites

Keep these coconut and date breakfast pieces in the fridge or freezer so you always have a grab-and-go alternative for hectic mornings, and never skip breakfast again.
