What is ‘free-from’? A free-from diet can come in many forms. Many people chose gluten, dairy, sugar, and nut free food alternatives due to lifestyle, allergens, intolerances, or a medical condition such as coeliac disease. (For more detail about Coeliac disease, take a look at our previous coeliac awareness blog posts). These kinds of intolerances and illnesses can create difficulties in finding the right kind of snacks to gain enjoyment from food. However, being ‘free-from’ doesn’t have to be boring or restrictive. So, we’ve put together a list of our favourite free-from snacks to give you a little inspiration for when it’s time to satisfy that next snack craving.
You can find many of these products directly on our website.
Dairy free – Tutti Biscotti
These crunchy gourmet biscotti are allergen friendly and are the perfect treat for satisfying that afternoon sweet craving. They have four delicious flavours to choose from: Orange and Dark Chocolate, Pistachio, Cranberry and Anise, Cocoa Almond, and Almond. We find these are best with a good book and an oat milk latte.
(This product is free from dairy, gluten, soy, and corn).
Refined sugar free – Shores of Africa Coconut Thins
Founded by siblings, Shores of Africa pride themselves on their passion for food, creating natural snacks that allow you to experience the continent of Africa. These crunchy coconut thins can be enjoyed in both sweet and savoury varieties with adventurous flavour combinations of: Fennel and Clove, Cardamom and Black Pepper, Banana and chilli, Mango, Pineapple, and original. We love pairing these with a dip such as hummus, guacamole, or nut/seed butter for an extra tasty treat.
(This product is free from Refined sugar, Gluten, Wheat, Oil, Nuts, Eggs and Dairy).
Vegan friendly – Just Whole Foods Organic Brownie Mix
For when you fancy a comforting homemade treat Just Whole Foods have a wide range of plant based and organic mixes you can bake and create from home. These include vegan jelly, custard powder, falafels, and (our personal favourite) an organic brownie mix that provides the perfect indulgent treat for everyone.

Nut free – Oatavenue Granola Butter
Oat Avenue have created an allergen free butter that is vegan, gluten, nut and refined sugar free. Made from oats, this granola butter can be enjoyed straight from the jar, on toast, porridge, and on top of fresh fruit. All of Oatavenue’s granola butters come in plastic-free packaging meaning you can reuse the jar for some tasty granola butter overnight oats!

Low FOD – DovesFarm Organic Chocolate stars
DovesFarm Chocolate star cereal provides the great taste of childhood nostalgia . We love these for making chocolate star clusters (find the recipe here), for topping yoghurt bowls, or simply for having handfuls straight from the box.
