5 Healthy and Delicious Snacks

5. Protein BrowniesIMG_4218

This recipe was very fun and easy to make. Using protein powder instead of chocolate really helped me get the boost I needed, and it still fulfilled the needs of my sweet tooth. Depending on what type of protein powder you use, the brownies might end up being more almond-buttery than chocolate, so you should plan accordingly. See the recipe at RunEatRepeat.com.



4. Rice Bars with Peanut Butter and Maple SyrupIMG_4223

The thing I liked about this recipe is that it works really well as a way to use up some leftover rice. It was also extremely simple to make, which is always helpful. The less fluffy your rice is, the better these will turn out! See the recipe at Prevention.com.



3. Ants on a LogIMG_4215

These are super simple to make, and you can put them together and eat them in a heartbeat! It’s a great, healthy way to get kids to eat vegetables, and I especially like whipping this one out when I babysit. One of my favorite things about this recipe is that you get to make each “log” individually, so you can be as creative about it as you want and don’t have to worry about storing leftovers.

2. Peanut Butter, Strawberry, and Banana Quesadillas

IMG_4217While I was eating these, I had to keep reminding myself that they were actually healthy; it just tasted so sweet! They take less than 5 minutes to prepare, and it takes even less time to eat. Just like the ants on a log, I really enjoyed how you can make one at a time instead of a whole batch.

For mine, I used the smallest sized tortilla I could find, and I ended up only using half of a banana, 2 strawberries, and about a tablespoon of strawberry jam and peanut butter. My advice is to put these on the stove, even though it might sound weird. I highly recommend it. It made them taste so much better! See the recipe at Texanerin.com.



1. Frozen GrapesIMG_4225

This treat is by far my favorite because of how simple it is to just store the grapes in the freezer and snack on a couple here and there. It takes no preparation — just a little patience. These taste even better than a popsicle, and they’re definitely healthier! All you have to do is throw a bag of grapes in the freezer and wait for them to freeze.

My favorite time to eat these is after a workout because they are simple to pop in your mouth and instantly hydrate you! See the Recipe at KidsCooking.about.com.
