Healthy Homemade Snack Recipes and Ideas

Header image

I love homemade snacks.

Some say if you want to be healthy, you shouldn’t snack. But I disagree.

Just because I’ve batch-cooked delicious, healthy homemade meals all week doesn’t mean I can’t have something in between. Not when healthy snacks exist, and I want something deliciously salty or sweet or crunchy or smooth.

Here’s a short list of my favourite healthy homemade snacks when the mood strikes.

Banana Bread
