6 Quick Snacks to Beat the Munchies

This list of 6 flavor packed healthy snack recipes packs a lot of flavor and happiness into easy things you could make for when the munchies hit! Say goodbye to the your regular rotation of sweet potato chips or hard boiled eggs and hello to flavors on every end of the spectrum.

We got savory basil and zucchini bites, turkey zucchini pinwheels for those who are looking for an extra protein and veggie boost. If you’re craving something crunchy but don’t want to touch potato chips, some spicy chipotle popcorn or crispy cinnamon tortilla chips will really hit the spot. And for those looking for something sweet and decadent, a sauteed fruit with greek yogurt, or a quick crepe recipe really makes this list of easy snacks a wonderful thing to keep in your pantry. The point for any snack idea to be successful, especially for those on special diets, should be that it is easy to prepare but tastes good too. Simple and delicious is the name of the game.

I do have other recipes that include sweet potatoes and roasted chickpeas, but I think they take a little longer to put together in comparison. Some of these can be kept for a while, but others will need to be eaten quickly. The basil and zucchini bites can be frozen, but the turkey zucchini pinwheels won’t survive that. Popcorn and tortilla chips can get stale after a while, but you can increase their longevity by keeping them in an airtight container in the fridge. Make sure they cool completely before you store them!
