A medium honeycrisp apple chopped into cubes. Cook (in the microwave works) with 2 teaspoons brown sugar and some cinnamon. It's about 100 calories of delicious.

Berries cooked with a half cup of oatmeal and brown sugar on top

Apple by itself

sugar free jelly with fruit in it. Depends on the fruit and the jelly, but about 50cals usually. Not so great for clean eating, so if you are into that then maybe just fruit - or freeze a really ripe banana and then blend it with some fresh berries/other fruit or a nut butter or some coconut milk - cals dependent on what you blend it with but it is lovely and meets most clean eating requirements.

So much this. But I go without sugar, I find microwaving the apple with cinnamon is sweet enough!

i've been eating quaker's "stila" oat cookie bar. They have blueberry, strawberry, apple cinnamon flavors. 100 calories per bar, and not too expensive (usually less than 2 bucks a box, but I recently found them at my dollar store yay!)

Cracker Jack. One box is 120. Or buy a 4 oz. bag and re-bag into 4 portions.

Mix a box of angle food cake mix thoroughly with a box of any other kind. Put 3 T. of the powder in a mug and 2 T. of water. Nuke for 1 minute. Makes a tasty cupcake for 50-80 cals.

1 Somoa girl scout cookie is 75 calories. Depending on which flavor you get, the BoomChicaPop popcorn is under 100 calories for a cup. One of them you can even have 2 cups for under 100.

I'm in the uk so we don't have the same packaged goods.

We do have snack packs of biscuits (cookies), and my OH does have cadburys animals, fingers, Jamie dodgers, breakaways and the like as her daily treat.

I prefer to make something myself thou.

Keep meaning to try apple slices with peanut butter but apples make my face screw up if they aren't sweet 😏

Hi :) I'm in the UK too.

I love
Mini Toffee Crisp bars - 99cals
Microwaved Apple Chunks, sugar and cinnamon, with a small scoop of ice cream - 150cals ish - It's like having apple crumble without the crumble topping.
Strawberries dipped in a melted mini chocolate bar - 120cals ish
KitKat - 107cals

Frozen red grapes are delish!

Great question! As a fitness trainer and nutritionist, I can tell you that your BEST bets ain't gonna be found on the processed food aisle - or even 'health food section' of your local market ... My all-time fave choices would be a few strawberries dipped in a square of melted dark chocolate, inserting a popsicle stick and freezing some low fat real fruit Greek yogurt AFTER removing at least 1/2 the fruit at the bottom, or a small hand-full of those Emerald brand dark chocolate dusted almonds.

Some other ideas include:
One small apple (70 calories) drizzled with half a tablespoon of honey (32 calories): 102 calories
Six dried apricots: 100 calories
One and a half Newman's Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups: 90 calories
30 frozen grapes: 101 calories
One four-ounce cup of Santa Cruz Organic Applesauce (50 calories) topped with eight chopped peanuts (47 calories): 97 calories
One Julie's Organic Sorbet Bar: 60 calories

You can also dry many fruits in the oven and by doing so, their sweetness is enhanced, yet NOT their calories - and their nutrient value is actually enhanced.

Hi...I agree about the frozen red grapes, they are totally delicious. Also, home made "Ice Cream Sandwiches". 1 Chocolate graham cracker split in half add cool whip (or lite cool whip) and freeze. No sugar added fudgescicle and Marino's italian ice (every flavor except chocolate) are 100 calories.

Raspberries.

Dried fruit is one of my favourites - make sure it's not sweetened though. Your best bets are unsulphured/organic apricots and pitted dates. Apples, pears and bananas are also good! If you really fancy chocolate, I agree with EatLikeAnAthlete - miniature and snacksize chocolate bars are really good. I like Cadbury Buttons and Milkyway Stars the best as you feel like you're getting more. Aero white choc bubbly mousses are also amazing and are only 99 calories each :)

I snack ALOT, so my food diary blog might give you some more ideas which I've forgotten on here... ameliasfooddiary.wordpress.com :)
