Snacking is one of the simplest pleasures in life.
But why settle for store-bought treats when you can whip up delicious and nutritious snacks tailored to your unique tastes with a few simple ingredients?
Creating snacks at home is also a great way to save money and enjoy healthier options. So use your imagination and start experimenting!
- Keep things simple: Start with basic ingredients, such as fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds.
- Get creative with dips: Dips, such as hummus, guacamole or almond butter, can turn simple snacks into something special.
- Experiment with dehydrating: Dehydrating fruits, veggies, and herbs is a fun and easy way to make healthy snacks.
- Make your granola or trail mix: Mix your favorite nuts, seeds, dried fruit, and spices to create a custom snack mix.
- Bake your own crackers or chips: Baking crackers and chips is a fun and healthy alternative to store-bought options.
- Play with seasonings: Try using different herbs, spices, and seasonings to flavor your snacks. For example, try cinnamon on your apples or chili powder on your roasted almonds.
- Step up your game: Search the internet for recipes for healthy cookies, muffins and ice cream. Your options are limitless!
