Maintaining a healthy diet with any kind of food allergy can seem tricky, but a nut allergy can feel like a life-sized road block on your path to health. Nuts boast tons of nutritious benefits, so they find themselves sprinkled into calorie-conscience granola bar and spooned into protein packed smoothies. As more schools are going nut free, parents are scouring Pinterest to find replacements for their go-to peanut butter cracker snack.

While this nut-loving nation promotes grabbing a handful of almonds for the road, our nut-free friends are left wondering what they can munch on after a run or to quell their midday slump.

We compiled a list of our favorite healthy snacks that are 100% nut free and under 150 calories. 

Pumpkinseed, Date, and Tahini Bars

Quinoa and pumpkin seeds bring protein to the table, while tahini adds a subtle nuttiness without the nuts.
