- Banana Split Bites – Life Love Liz For many people, like me, going healthy cold turkey is hard. So it’s good to find healthy alternatives. This recipe is perfect for those late night ice cream cravings, but less guilt!
- Avocado Dip – The Seasoned Mom Not only is this recipe healthy, it’s a two minute recipe. There’s no excuse not to make it. And no this isn’t guacamole, it’s something even better. Adding Greek yogurt makes it so creamery and smootie while adding protein!
- Dill Roasted Chickpeas – For The Love of Crust Dill is probably my favorite herb, so this is definitely a favorite of mine. I can sit and pop them in my mouth like candy, but unlike candy they’re actually filling and healthy!
- Strawberry Watermelon Sorbet – Kelsey in the Kitchen I know it’s winter, but I crave frozen treats all year. This recipe is so healthy, made mostly of fruit. I love to have a bowl after a good work out. Feels like an indulegence even though it’s healthy!
- Paleo Crackers – Wholesome Yum What I love most about this recipe is it’s a three ingredient recipe. Making your own crackers sounds intiminading but this recipe makes it so easy. And people are always so impressed when your crackers are homemade.
- Poblano-Corn Hummus – 3 Olives Branch Corn is one of my all time favorite foods, so I loved the idea of putting it in a hummus. And adding the poblanos gives is a nice south west kick. So much more flavorful than traditional hummus.
- Ricotta Stuffed Dates – She Loves Biscotti This recipe is so easy and has a nice long shelf life. I would make a bunch and keep them in the fridge that way when I just need a quick snack they’re already ready, plus the walnut adds a great texture!
- Marinated Olives – Cricket’s Confections This is another recipe that holds really well. You can make a weeks worth of snacks all at once. And it’s also a healthy party snack, all you need it something tooth picks and you’ve got a fancy snack!
- Oatmeal Muffins – Kiddilicious Kitchen Muffins are one of my favorite grab and go snacks, but usually they’ve got the same nutritional value as cake. I love this recipe because there’s no sugar just apple sauce. It’s as healthy as a bowl of oatmeal, but way tastier!
- Vegan Pizza Snacks – Cheftographer This is a snack that doesn’t even taste healthy, because it tastes just like pizza. Think pizza quesadillas, amazing! And there’s lots of veggies inside, a good healthy dinner you’re kids will eat.
- Carrot Cake Energy Bites – Caroline’s Cooking Usually I’m not a fan of these no bake bites that everyone loves. But this recipe is the exception to the rule. Besides, there’s frosting involved! They’re the perfect mid afternoon pick me up!
- Cake Batter Mousse – The Fit Blog Anything cake batter and I’m in, but also being healthy? Well, this is the type of recipe that was made for me. Chocolately and delicious, but healthy enough for breakfast.

- Healthy Buckeyes – Cupcakes and Kale Chips This recipe does not taste healthy at all, and that’s okay with me. Instead of powdered sugar like most buck eyes these have oats, not only making them healthier but also much more fillling, and that’s what I’m looking for in a healthy snack.

- Basil Sundried Tomato Brie – Swanky Recipes I know what you’re thinking, baked brie isn’t that healthiest snack. And sure, it is mostly cheese. However, most baked bries are covered in sugar filled jams. And since this one is not, I’d say it’s a healthier choice!
