25 Insanely Easy Healthy Snacks
Hangry feelings are the worst feelings! Beat the hangry life with these 25 insanely easy healthy snacks you can make in 5 minutes or less.
So today I’m road-tripping to my sister’s graduation in Ohio. I’m not sure how far a trip has to be to count as an official road trip, but I’ll say 3.5 hours with a baby definitely counts! And no road trip is complete without snacks! (And gas, you need gas too.) Here are some of my favorite quick and healthy snack ideas; you can count on a few of these being in my road trip stash today!
25 Insanely Easy and Healthy Snacks
Easiest snack ever. Full of potassium, easy to take anywhere because you don’t even need to wash it—just peel and eat!
Dates are a sweet treat, perfect for an energy pickup make an awesome snack choice!
3. Cheese sticks
Perfect for an on-the-go snack cheese sticks have 7 grams of protein and are perfectly portioned.
4. Healthy Morning Glory Muffins
These delicious morning glory muffins are a bit more labor intensive, but packed with healthy grains, hidden veggies and are perfect for meal prepping. I’ve also got a yummy Banana Applesauce Muffin and these glorious Healthy Pumpkin Muffins!
Love these! I keep a bag in my desk at work for snack emergencies! Almonds are a great healthy fat, full of omega threes, so they keep you full!
5. Greek Yogurt
Oh my love yogurt. Thick, creamy, sprinkled with berries and drizzled with honey is my favorite way to enjoy! Sometimes I ignore my lactose intolerance and eat it anyways. Because it’s soo good!
This is the current snack obsession in our household! Nate is HOOKED on the chocolate chip cookie kind and I love the apple pie version! Love that you can recognize all the ingredients. I’ve also been making these DIY versions at home!
8. Carrots and hummus
Fancy hummus is the best. I like to set out hummus and baby carrots before dinner to snack on while I’m getting things ready.
This is my favorite kind of popcorn! Sometimes I add raisins or chocolate chips for some extra yumminess.
10. Apples and peanut butter
I mean just plain apples are great too, but added some peanut butter (or almond butter or sunflower butter or nutella) is just some extra awesome-ness.
11. Veggie Straws
These are so good! Simple. Easy. Kind of addicting.
12. Peanut Butter Bites
These peanut butter bites are insanely good and whip up in less than 5 minutes. Store in the fridge or freezer.
13. Granola Bars
While I like Larabar any type of protein bar or granola bar is a quick and easy snack that is perfect for when you are on the go !
14. Beef Jerky
Another great on the go snack you can grab in a second and be on your way.
15. Bowl of oatmeal
When you are hungry grabbing a quick bowl of oatmeal (that you can cook in two minutes or less) is a great snack option that leaves you super satisfied. Banana Bread Oatmeal is one of my favs!
16. Trail Mix
Trail mix is something simple you can buy and is great for when you are expending a lot of energy. You can totally pick it up from the store or make your own!
17. Pop Chips
These are an easy and tasty option for a quick snack!
18. Chocolate Coconut Bites
Another great make ahead option are these chocolate coconut bites. Love these crumbled over yogurt or a smoothie too!
19. Ants on a log
Classic peanut butter and celery with the bonus raisins for the “ants”.
20. Turkey pepperoni and cheese crackers
This is the world’s easiest snack, aka faux lunchables that is tasty, healthy and fulfills your kid nostalgia.
Blend up a yummy and healthy snack!
22. Frozen blueberries in milk
I love this as a healthy snack option! It’s like an icey fruit freeze! You’ve got to try it. Sprinkle just a smidge of sugar or sugar substitute on top for an even sweeter treat.
23. Deli meat and cheese roll up
Simply roll up a slice of deli meat or two in a slice of cheese for a protein packed snack.
24. Roasted Chickpeas
Top them anyway you desire but this Sweet and Spicy Recipe has my mouth watering!
No bake cookies are so easy to make and this high protein version will have you jumping for joy.
What are your favorite easy healthy snack ideas?
Snacks are my favorite, which is *clearly* why I developed my own nut butter line for on-the-go snacking and dessert-ing 🙂
YUM!! And that’s awesome about starting your own nut butter line!! And I loved reading a bunch of your posts! Thanks for commenting. 🙂
Okay, dates STUFFED with peanut butter? I don’t think I have the self control to have that as a snack, I might make it an entire meal!
and I love greek yogurt, add some PB2, or cocoa powder, or cinnamon, or nutritional yeast, the options are endless!
Ever try NUGO bars? They give larabars a run for their money!
Haha! And now I’m re-craving Greek yogurt. 😀 And I’ll have to check out Nugo bars? Are they pricey like Larabars? I’d love a cheaper, but still delicious option!
They all look so yummyI love bananas and peanut butter crackers myself!
That sounds great!
I love snacking on these, but I wouldn’t take the yogurt with me on a road trip (except if I decide to eat it right after I start the car) because the texture changes after a while. Great post!
True! Sometimes I like to pack a small cooler for a road trip, but agreed they aren’t all ideal for a trip–the dates and peanut butter would def get messy! lol!
