There’s something about the word “cookie” that makes us smile. Memories of childhood, perhaps, when our biggest worry focused on which cookie to choose from Grandma’s cookie jar? But we don’t always have time to bake in our busy adult lives — and we also don’t want to resort to grabbing processed products at the store. Here’s the solution: no-bake cookie bars. This wholesome recipe is beyond simple, and better yet, it can be customized with your favorite dried fruits and berries, nuts or nut butters.

Popcorn? Check. Pretzels? Check. Kale? Wait a second…what’s a leafy green vegetable doing on your snack shopping list? And what happened to the chips? Believe us when we say those potato pound-magnets will be a thing of your past once you try this recipe! Slow baked at a low temp, the health world’s hottest veggie becomes a crispy, crunchy indulgence that’s actually good for you to munch. Season with yummy nutritional yeast and a dash of spicy chipotle powder and you won’t even notice they’re salt free!
Take toast to a new level, dip fruit to your heart’s content! With this protein-packed, chunky nut spread, snacking isn’t just a way to stave off hunger, it’s fuel to keep you moving full speed ahead through your day. The secret is two scoops of vegan, non-soy protein powder blended into already-protein-rich nut butter. Use almond, cashew, peanut—whichever nut butter you like best!
Popcorn is a perfect light, crunchy summertime snack. Plus, it only costs about 16 cents per serving—you can’t beat that when you’ve got a bunch of hungry kids hanging out at home. Rather than oil and the traditional stovetop method, I like to use an air popper, which I place outside to keep the heat (and the kids) out of the kitchen. After popping up a big batch, I sprinkle on one of my homemade seasoning blends to transform boring, plain-old puffs into a super satisfying sweet or savory snack.
Craving something crunchy? Put down that bag of chips and make yourself one of these crispy, nutritious “cakes” instead. Homemade cashew cheese is spread over a brown rice cake, then topped with rich sundried tomatoes, tasty capers and a sprinkling of hemp seeds. A quick toast in the oven and you’ve got a satisfying snack that’s actually good for you!
Can’t decide which dip to serve with your chips? Make one that blends two of everyone’s favorites with this clever recipe for Guacamole Hummus. Just toss a can of organic chickpeas, a ripe avocado and a few other simple ingredients into your food processor for a smooth, creamy creation to scoop up and enjoy with dippable snacks.
