The Healthy Maven SNACKS I Make All The Time

September 25, 2016

Well we’re onto the third edition of this series! If you haven’t explored the meals and breakfasts I make all the time, I highly recommend checking them out!


But if you’re a snacker like I am, this post will be your jam. It’s even more relevant right now as we take our little family on the road. We’re gonna be hopping between a few places for the next few months (more to come on this as the time as right) and lots of road tripping is involved. This means snacks are basically our lifeline to survival.

There’s lots of premade snacks I love – let me know if you’d like to see a listing of those- but if you’ve got the time, I have several recipes I find myself making time and time again. And no, they’re not all energy balls…though you’ll see quite a few of those.

As always, if you make any THM recipes, be sure to tag them with #thehealthymaven so I can see your creations!

Blueberry Muffin Energy Balls

This is probably the 15th time I’ve mentioned these on the blog. They’re one of my first ever recipes that I came up with and have made them like a million times. Definitely my staple snack recipe!

Want the taste of a sweet and delicious blueberry muffin, without all of the gunk? Make these Raw Blueberry Muffin Energy Balls for a nutritious snack that doesn't skimp on the flavor!

Crispy Sriracha Lime Chickpeas 

There is nothing like crispy chickpeas to satiate your savory tooth! These are addictive and consider yourself warned that you’ll either need to double or even triple the recipe!

Cinnamon Roll Protein Bars

If I’m grabbing a protein bar, it’s going to be these ones! I’ve also made them with my favorite Vega protein powder (add a bit more almond milk) and they’re just as good for a dairy-free version.

Superseed Crackers

This is probably the recipe I’m most proud of developing. I had a bunch of seeds, added some water and spices and BAM, healthy crackers! If you’re not a confident baker but want to try making something from scratch, this recipe is for you.

Crackers just got a healthy makeover with these SuperSeed Crackers made entirely from fiber-rich and omega-filled super seeds! Grab your seeds, mix with water and spices and bake! That's all you need for this healthy snack recipe perfect for dipping.

Healthy Chocolate Chip Avocado Muffins

Sounds like a strange combination but the addition of avocado in these muffins makes this recipe so moist and creamy! I’m always so excited when someone tells me they made this recipe and were so surprised by how delicious they are!

Swap the butter for avocado in these Healthy Chocolate Chip Avocado Muffins. They're moist and delicious with a chocolate kick for a healthy snack recipe on the go.

Peanut Butter Granola Bars

Ditch the chewy bars and make these healthier granola bars instead. I came up with this recipe when I was living in NYC so I will always associate these bars with that time in my life, but I still make them occasionally and am reminded why I love them so much!

Snacking made easy with these Peanut Butter Granola Bars! Just 6 ingredients is all you need to have a healthy and delicious snack for your busy lifestyle. They're gluten-free and vegan too!

Cake Batter Energy Balls

These are a bit more on the indulgent side…sprinkles YOLO, but we all need a treat every now and then! Plus you’ll get a good dose of protein to make these cake batter balls more long-lasting so you don’t reach for another slice of cake instead.

Want the taste of cake batter without having to whip up a whole cake? These Cake Batter Energy Balls are a lightened-up and high-protein snack recipe that tastes just like the real thing!

    Awesome post! I can bet the Cinnamon Roll Protein Bars is a power-packed snack to eat before or after a workout. I will definitely try it out this weekend. The Superseed Crackers seems like a very filling snack to munch on at night also. Davida let me know what you think about these other snacks..

    Yum I love snacks! I have been making a lot of energy balls, roasted chickpeas, and egg muffins (portable frittatas) lately.

      So many roasted chickpeas lately!! I haven’t quite gotten in on the egg muffin trend (texture thing), but I swear I’ll come around one day!

    I am a huge night snacker and have over the years tried to come up with healthier snack options to satisfy my cravings. My all time favourite is microwaving a banana for about 30 seconds and then sprinkle with cinnamon and cacao powder. So good and satisfying!
