30 healthy, homemade snacks to satisfy any craving. From sweet to salty to crunchy to creamy, there’s something on this list for everyone!
I love snacks. I pretty much eat all day long, with a meal or snack at least every couple of hours. (Even when I’m not eating for two!) I have my go-to favorite snacks, but I also like to mix things up once in a while and try some new ideas. With my recent commitment to stop buying packaged snacks, I decided a list of my favorite homemade snacks plus lots of new ideas would be a great resource going into the new year.
I’ve searched through some of my favorite blogs to put together an awesome collection of healthy snack options for you (and me, too). I want to try each and every one of these recipes. The hard part is deciding which one to make first. Which would you choose?

Apple, Cinnamon, and Raisin Chewy Granola Bars – Warm spices and oats make these chewy granola bars the perfect snack to enjoy with your afternoon cup of tea.

Yummy Nut Butter Snacks
Maple Roasted Almond Butter from Kitchen Simplicity – It’s unbelievable easy to make your own nut butter, and I love that this almond butter is flavored with pure maple syrup. I’d spread it on graham crackers and apple slices!
