5 Healthy Snack Recipes and Ideas for Families on the Go

My family members are big snackers.  They would prefer to eat a bag of cheese crackers instead of the healthy meals I cook for them.  So, having wholesome and delicious snack choices that are quick to grab and easy to take on the go are important to have on hand.  Over the years, I've compiled a list of our favorite easy snack recipes, which I've listed below.

One of our favorite healthy snacks is Energy Bites.  My girls do competitive gymnastics, so I feel good about sending these to fuel their bodies during practice.  I also love to eat them for a quick energy boost and to fight those mid-day hunger cravings.  Because they are easy to make and last a long time in the freezer, I make a big batch and we grab them when we need a healthy snack option.

I adapted this recipe from Princess Pinky Girl.  My daughters usually help me make these energy bites, and it is fun and quick.  Now they can pretty much make them themselves.

Chocolate Chip Energy Bites

1.  Heat 1 cup of Almond Butter (or your favorite nut butter) with 1/2 cup of honey in the microwave for 30-60 seconds, until you are able to easily mix the two ingredients together.

2.  In a medium-sized bowl, combine 3 cups of oats with the almond butter/honey mixture and stir.

3.  Add 1/3 cup of mini chocolate chips and stir again.  Refrigerate the mixture for an hour or more.

4.  Roll the mixture into balls, then place back into the refrigerator or the freezer in an airtight container.  Enjoy!
