Quick and easy gluten-free snack ideas

Quick and easy gluten-free snack ideas

Gluten is a structural protein naturally found in cereal grains. For some people, gluten is the source of discomfort, due to celiac disease or gluten intolerance. Living a gluten-free lifestyle can prove challenging, especially as people first learn to navigate what types of foods contain gluten. Worry no more, at Oloaa, we love all things granola. Especially gluten-free granola! We’ve put together our favourite gluten-free snacks to help you get started on your journey to a deliciously healthier lifestyle.

Tasty granola bars 

Heart healthy and made in the UAE, our tasty gluten-free granola bars are the perfect on-the-go snack. Whether you need an after school pick me up, something for the morning rush, or a healthy treat for after the gym, we have plenty of flavour options, including our classic fruit free bar, chocolate, and keto friendly granola bars. If your family is a mixture of gluten and gluten-free, we recommend trying a box of our mixed granola bars. Complete with five bars, our variety box allows you to try them all to see what you like! If you prefer, you can also shop our gluten-free section of loose granola to make your own homemade bars!


A timeless parfait recipe is an easy way to incorporate gluten-free granola into your life. The beautiful thing about parfaits is that they can be personalised to your preferences by simply swapping out fruits, changing up yoghurt brands, and mix-and-matching your favourite toppings. Simply find a favourite small glass or bowl and layer the ingredients to your liking.

 A quick breakfast parfait that we enjoy includes the following (but feel free to add whatever berries you prefer):

  • ½ cup blueberries
  • ½ cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1 cup gluten-free granola
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • ½ tsp chia seeds 
  • 10 oz of greek yoghurt

Gluten-free acai bowls

Acai bowls are basically a smoothie in a bowl with delicious toppings! One version that we enjoy is the gluten and dairy-free banana and berry acai bowl. 

To make the base of this gluten-free acai bowl blend the following ingredients:

  • ½ cup blueberries
  • ½ cup blackberries
  • ½ cup bananas
  • ½ cup strawberries
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 cup unsweetened organic almond milk
  • Almond butter (optional)
  • 4 tbsp Acai powder 

After adding the base to a bowl, top it with the following:

  • Sliced strawberries and bananas
  • Flax seeds
  • Gluten-free granola of choice
  • Drizzle with honey

Other easy gluten-free snacks

Quick on the go snacks are a must-especially for those with little ones or hectic schedules. If you want to keep it simple, gluten-free healthy fruits and veggies are the way to go! Some of our favourite gluten-free snacks include:

  • Applesauce with cinnamon
  • String cheese
  • Sliced peppers, cucumbers, and carrots
  • Apples, bananas, oranges, strawberries, and grapes
  • Plain yoghurt
  • Gluten-free granola with milk
