I’ll admit it– my go-to snack recipes used to be nachos or putting a little hot sauce on a cheese covered cracker. While those easy snacks are delicious, they definitely don’t make you feel good eating them. These snack recipes are tasty, and just as easy as reaching for a bag of chips. If you want to switch up your snacks, this is the article for you!
1. Everything Bacon
I am obsessed with bacon. It’s crispy, yummy, and easy to make. You may think bacon is unhealthy because of all the grease it produces, but this snack is filled with protein so it will give you a little boost of energy when you reach that afternoon slump.
Plus, it couldn’t be easier to make! Simply lay out however many pieces you want on a cookie sheet and sprinkle with dill weed, onion powder, poppy seeds, toasted sesame seeds and salt. Put the bacon in a cold oven and bake until it reaches 375 degrees, then leave it in for another 10-15 minutes. There you have it! One of my favorite snack recipes when I’m desperate for something crunchy.
2. Fiesta Guacamole
This guacamole snack recipe is unique and hands down the best guac I’ve ever made. Grab some avocados, radishes, strawberries, and garlic, chop them up and throw them into a bowl so you can mash them together. Top with green onion, cilantro, a splash of lemon and some salt and you’re good to go! This recipe is what made the kids I used to babysit fall in love with me, it’s that good!
You can eat it as a dip, but it’s just as delicious on it’s own with a little olive oil. Go crazy and get creative with it!
3. Prosciutto Chips
I absolutely love this snack recipe for its simplicity and saltiness. You definitely don’t feel deprived with this snack idea! Because it doesn’t have any unnecessary additives or heavily processed ingredients you can feel good about chowing down on this snack!
Just throw some prosciutto slices onto a cookie sheet and preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Once it’s ready, bake the slices for 12-15 minutes. Remove and enjoy!
4. Coconut Yogurt Parfaits
A tried and true snack recipe that will make you fall in love with the simplicity of fresh berries covered with something creamy. I prefer using coconut yogurt because it has a tangier flavor, but any yogurt will do!
This is a great snack idea because the berries have some sugar to help power you through the day, and the yogurt is filled with healthy bacteria that’s awesome for your gut. Top with chia seeds and granola for an added health boost!
5. Spicy Popcorn
Popcorn is the perfect snack idea for when you’re feeling extra lazy. But just plain butter popcorn can be so boring, right?! Spice it up by mixing melted butter with a few splashes of your favorite hot sauce. I love this snack recipe because it’s so versatile. You can substitute hot sauce for herbs or spices like turmeric– so delicious!
6. Whipped Feta Dip
I absolutely love feta cheese, so this is the snack recipe to reach for when you’re craving something creamy. You can top this with tomatoes and cucumbers for an added crunch, or eat with pita chips! You really can’t go wrong with this delicious snack.
7. Crispy Ranch Chickpeas
My favorite snack recipes are the crunchy ones. I love to snack on chips just as much as the next girl, but these chickpeas satisfy my craving for something salty even more than regular potatoes. Plus, they’re filled with protein so you’re getting nutrients you need without sacrificing on flavor. Get the recipe here!
