Healthy Snack Recipes | Cinnamon Yogurt Fruit Dip

It’s one thing to eat healthy dinner recipes and lunch recipes and breakfast recipes, but what about everything in between? Having healthy snack recipes on hand for when hunger strikes is crucial! Alex and I have found that if we have healthy snacks stocked and on hand, it’s so much easier to choose those than an unhealthy alternative. But if our cupboard is stocked with potato chips and cookies: then of course we want those instead!

Healthy snacks…without a recipe!

Now, before we talk about healthy snack recipes: let’s acknowledge that the easiest snacks have no recipe! Here are some snacks that we like to eat in our household that don’t require a recipe. What are your favorites?

  • Peanut butter toast
  • Sliced apples or bananas
  • Roasted or smoked almonds
  • Cheese and all natural crackers
  • Cottage cheese
  • Yogurt with a drizzle of maple syrup and berries
  • Avocado toast (mashed avocado on toast with salt or Everything Bagel seasoning)

And now, our healthy snack recipes!
