In our fast-paced world, it might be difficult to find the time to prepare nutritious snacks for ourselves.
Making your own snacks at home, on the other hand, not only ensures that you have control over the ingredients but also enables you to develop options that are both delicious and nutritious that are tailored to your specific preferences and dietary needs.
In this article, we will discuss a few wholesome snacks that are simple to prepare and that you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home.
What Are Some Healthy Snacks To Make At Home?
Healthy Bar And Ball Snacks
Even though you can buy a million different kinds of bars now, I still like to make my own.
It’s less expensive, plus I know what I’m eating: real foods like oats, almonds, and seeds with no additions or chemicals.
Plus, it’s easy to keep these healthy snacks on hand—you can keep them in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for up to two months.
Granola Bars Made At Home
These granola bars that you made at home taste better than any you could buy at the store.
They are made with peanut butter, honey, oats, and dark chocolate. They are crunchy and taste sweet and nutty.
These energy balls taste like little balls of cookie dough. They are sticky, sweet, and full of chocolate chips. But they are still made with healthy things like almond butter, oats, and dates.
Pistachio Squares With Oats
You’re in luck if you want a sweet snack with nuts. There are only 6 things you need to make these oat squares, and they will be done in less than 30 minutes.
The recipe is from One Part Plant, a book written by my friend Jessica Murnane.
Cookies That Don’t Need To Be Baked
They are vegan, don’t have gluten, and are full of healthy things like oats and peanut butter. I call these things “cookies,” but I think of them as healthy snacks.
Carrot Cake Blessing Balls
Carrot cake is one of our favorite desserts, so it makes sense that these balls are one of our favorite healthy snacks. Made from sunflower seeds, they have no nuts at all.
No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookies
I love having a stash of these healthy cookies on hand when I need a quick breakfast or snack that I can grab and go.
Dips And Spreads
Fresh vegetables are some of the best healthy snacks because they are full of nutrients.
But if you’re like me, they might not be the first thing you think of when your stomach starts to rumble in the afternoon.
So what can we do to make them more appealing? Keep something tasty in the fridge.
It will make it WAY more fun to eat your vegetables, but that’s not all. The dip itself will add fiber, protein, and/or healthy fats to your food.
Bread Made With Pumpkin
I especially like this pumpkin bread in the fall, but I’d be happy to eat a slice any time of year because it’s moist and tastes like spicy pumpkin.
Bagels Made At Home
If you like salty snacks, these fresh bagels will be right up your alley. You can eat them plain or spread them with cream cheese or hummus to make them last longer.
Quinoa Cookies For Breakfast
I like to eat these cookies, which are like carrot cake, for breakfast, but they are also a good snack.
Adding quinoa to healthy foods like nuts, seeds, and oats makes them a great source of protein and fiber.
These kid-friendly broccoli tots will make any kid who doesn’t like green food happy.
They are also easy to pick up with little hands and make a tasty snack for adults as well.
Muffins Made With Carrot, Zucchini, And Ricotta

Gluten-Free Cereal Bars With Sesame And Dark Chocolate
Made these chewy sesame and dark chocolate cereal bars at home. They are gluten-free and healthy.
