I eat veggies dipped in a dip I make from homemade mayo. I just use mayo as the base and then add spices to make it like a dip you would find in the store (onion, bacon horseradish, Buffalo wing, etc.).

Anything with coconut oil. I know you said nil to nuts but have you tried macadamia nuts? I get roasted UNSALTED. Their O3 level is about the highest and can help offset other nuts (and meats) that are too much O6.
Also, I make my own dark chocolate from coconut oil and organic (nothing added) cocoa powder. I'll eat it w/o any sweetener but sometimes I add a little stevia extract (zero other ingredients, just stevia). By a little I mean VERY LITTLE. It's not a sweet snack. People who go, "Ooo, chocolate" get a rude surprise :)
Take one banana, chop in 1/2" sections, freeze overnight, I keep at least one banana in a baggie in the freezer at all times, when frozen throw in a food processor add coconut oil, the thick cream at the top of a can of full-fat coconut milk, almond butter, dark chocolate or any combination of the above and blend until smooth. Paleo ice cream! I'm eating some as I type this. yum

I make this fake fudge stuff out of coconut. In the food processor add 3 packets of "let's do organic" creamed coconut ( or make your own w/ unsweetened coconut flakes/shreds), a big 'ol dollup of coconut oil, 1 stick of butter softened, 1-2 tbsp cocoa powder, dash of vanilla and stevia to taste, I usually use 6 packets. run the food processor for a few minutes to get it all mixed up, add a scoop of protein powder and a can of coconut milk. then I fold in a cup or so of pecans that I roast in butter in a skillet on top of the stove. Pour the mixture into a small cake pan and refrigerate over night. the next morning you can cut into bite sized pieces. store in the fridge.
Any suggestions on some fatty snacks? I find sometimes at night if I haven't had enough fat for the day, I'm still hungry. I can't stomach eating avocado on its own, and I'm trying to limit my nuts/seeds intake.
My go to are deviled eggs, but I eat so many eggs, I'm afraid that I'm going to develop an egg allergy someday (which I hope doesn't happen since I love em so much!)
To succeed in your goals is to go outside your comfort zone, push yourself constantly and realize that you only get back what you put in, so give it 110% all the time, everytime!
