We all love snacking, sometimes to curb the hunger between meals or sometimes, just because we need a treat. Whatever the reason, it’s always a good idea to have healthy, nutrient-dense snacks on hand! Here is a list of our favorite homemade gluten-free healthy snacks! This list includes many that are also dairy-free, Paleo and Whole30 friendly!
Healthy Snacks to Make At Home
Having nutrient-dense and filling snacks on hand is always the best defense against making unhealthy food choices, or having a blood sugar crash! While we have a list of our favorite Store-Bought Clean Eating Snacks, making your own is often more cost-effective and you get to totally control the ingredients. We’re sharing a list of our favorite homemade healthy snacks!
Nutrient-Dense Energy Bites
Loaded with fiber, protein, and natural sugars, energy bites (also sometimes known as fat bombs) make for a great energy-boosting on-the-go snack! Grab one or two and have a filling, pack it in the lunch box with your kids or serve for a healthy after dinner treat.
