"Healthy" crackers and other snacks

I'm making up a birthday basket for my brother. In the past I have always included his favorite chocolate, high fat cheeses, ice cream, etc. However, this year he is training for a death march type mountain bike trek in July and has given up all of these things and more, including all of his favorite junk foods. I've decided to give him a gin and tonic basket based on the theory that if he doesn't open it before he goes he certainly will when he gets back. I have the gin and the tonic covered, along with a set of Tervis tumblers, but would like to include a few snacks. I have nuts and pepper jack cheese and would like to include a cracker. Could anyone suggest something "healthy" and tasty? Salt is not a factor; sugar is. Also he does not care for pickled or brined things, which eliminates olives. I'd like to give him things that would not mess up his program should he choose to indulge before his trip, but would go well with the G&T.
