36 Healthy Homemade Snacks You Can Make Yourself


Sure, you can buy a bag of potato chips, but sometimes we want something healthier, and something homemade, where we can control the ingredients. From a new version of Chex Snack mix, to energy balls, soft and chewy granola bars, kale chips, smoothies and more, we have 36 sweet and savory recipes for you.

Soft, Chewy Granola Bars

These are nothing like the pre-packaged snack bars that you buy at the store. These Soft, Chewy Granola Bars are a little more like a bakery-style treat, yet they can be made ahead, frozen, and grabbed as you are running to the gym. Get ready for a bar packed with dried cranberries, nuts, seeds, and coconut. Get the recipe for Soft, Chewy Granola Bars.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls

Need a mid-day pick me up? Yearning for a bit of a treat? Look no further than these Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls. Peanut butter, oats, PB and chocolate. Fun to make with the kids. Get the recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls.

Muddy Buddies aka Puppy Chow

Before anyone writes us, we know that chocolate is not okay for dogs. And, this recipe is for humans, not dogs. It is a chocolaty cereal snack affectionately known as “Puppy Chow”, because it sort of looks like dog food. Anyway, human’s love it. Looking for something chocolatey and crunchy and sweet? This is your treat. Get the recipe for Muddy Buddies aka Puppy Chow.

Cranberry White Chocolate Energy Balls

Sweet/tart chewy dried cranberries and bits of white chocolate are nestled within a fiber-rich oat base. Peanut butter holds everything together. You could use maple syrup to sweeten, but we like rice syrup, which is low FODMAP and not as sweet. Get the Cranberry White Chocolate Energy Balls recipe.

Cold Brew Latte Pops With Crushed Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans

Cold brew is not just for drinking! On a hot day, when you need a pick me up in the middle of the afternoon, nothing satisfies like these coffee flavored popsicles. Crushed chocolate covered espresso beans are added for extra coffee value. Get the recipe for Cold Brew Latte Pops.

Pumpkin Cranberry Oat Breakfast Cookies

Cookies for breakfast? You bet, and we actually have several breakfast cookie recipes for you – and every single one make a fantastic take-along snack. This one is based on fiber-rich oats, canned pumpkin, and sweet/tart dried cranberries. The pumpkin seeds add color and crunch. Get the recipe for Pumpkin Cranberry Oat Breakfast Cookies.

Birthday Cake Bliss Balls

Energy Bites, Bliss Balls, whatever you call them, these no-bake treats are easy and fun to make. Kids learn how to read a recipe, measure ingredients, and get to use their hands and “play” with their food. And Rainbow sprinkles make everyone happy! Get the recipe for Birthday Cake Bliss Balls.

High Protein Peanut Butter Muffins

These muffins contain peanut butter, banana, eggs, chia, hemp, flax seed, oats, and no additional fat! See the Tips at the end of the recipe for a vegan option. Also, these are one of those recipes that are “ugly”, but good. Not much to look at, but very tasty; don’t overlook them! Make a big batch and put them in a zip-top bag in the freezer after cooling; that way you can grab one as needed. Get the recipe for High Protein Peanut Butter Muffins.

Loaded Kale Chips

Kale chips are a great snack but can be quite pricey at the store. We show you how to make them at home – and this version is loaded with flavor. Get the recipe for Loaded Kale Chips.

Homemade Chex Mix

Dump and mix! A gluten-free combo of Rice Chex with pretzels and nuts, garlic-infused oil, Worcestershire Sauce, melted butter, and optional cayenne. Get the recipe for Homemade Chex Mix.

We took our classic Cream Cheese Brownie recipe and added peanut butter to the cheesecake batter and swirled in strawberry jam. Rich, easier to make than they look, freeze well, and always a crowd pleaser. Click here for the PB&J Cream Cheese Brownies recipe.

Low FODMAP Mocha Espresso Power Balls

Whether you call them energy balls, bliss balls or power balls, these treats are easy to make treats that you can take along on the go. You gotta love coffee for this version – the espresso flavor is pronounced – and they have chocolate covered espresso beans in them for a big caffeine boost. Get the Low FODMAP Mocha Espresso Power Balls recipe.

Chunky Rice Krispie Treats

These are an ode to the Chunky candy bar, that combines chocolate, peanuts and raisins. Here we have combined these ingredients, in low FODMAP portions, with Rice Krispies, peanut butter, maple syrup and coconut oil and made a decadent snack! Sort of fancy, kind of homestyle at the same time, and easy to make! (The original candy bar features milk chocolate; I chose to use dark, but you can use milk). Click here for the Chunky Rice Krispie Treats recipe.

Overnight Oats & Chia

Soaking oats and chia seeds overnight with an alt milk, like almond or coconut, creates a fantastic base for all kinds of fruit, dried fruit, nuts and seed add-ins. The chia adds extra fiber, protein, iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc and are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. This recipe will keep you sated for hours. We love it for breakfast, or as a snack. Get the recipe.

Trail Mix Energy Balls

Nuts, “granola” ingredients and chocolate candies, all the ingredients of trail mix, in a convenient to carry ball form. Pop a couple in your mouth for a burst of energy. Get the recipe for Trail Mix Energy Balls.

Maple Pumpkin Spice Granola with Pecans

We love to have granola around for breakfast, to use as a topping for lactose-free yogurt and to eat out of hand as a snack.

I’ll go ahead and let you know that there isn’t any nutella in these energy bites. Sure, I love nutella as much as the next person but it’s not exactly a food that I want to be snacking on day after day. These do taste like nutella!
