So many snacks that are healthy, but today we are going to talk about the savory side of snacking. Grab some Solo portion cups and snack bags. If you’re entertaining, be prepared with next-level finger foods. You will have wholesome snacks you can throw in a cooler when you are on the go or store in your mini-fridge to satisfy your mid-afternoon munchies!
If you have several leftover green vegetables, you can make roasted brussels sprouts with bacon plenty of times, but we had never thought to do the same with cauliflower. This recipe is insanely easy and cauliflower has never been so flavorful! The roasted green onions and jalapeño char and caramelize in the bacon fat, and while they aren’t technically necessary, they might be our favorite part.
Spinach Artichoke Zucchini Bites
These little guys are scary addictive. Just as the zucchini becomes tender, the cheese is getting melty and delicious. If you want a little extra color on your bites, switch the oven to broil on medium and cook them a couple of minutes more. (Just keep an eye on them.) For a quick party trick, try making these in the air fryer! They come out perfectly.
Cheese Ball Bites
These easy bites are perfect for literally any occasion. We love their little pretzel handles, but feel free to leave them out! If preparing them the night before, refrigerate until 1 hour before serving, then remove from the fridge and let come to room temperature.
Bacon-Wrapped Water Chestnuts
A dinner party mainstay for years, bacon-wrapped water chestnuts are the perfect one-bite snack. Sticky, crisp, and crunchy, with the neutral flavor of the water chestnut soaking up the sweetness of the syrup and brown sugar and the savory notes of the garlic powder, herbs, and spices, these are a surefire winner. Go wild with the dipping sauces; we suggest honey-mustard, but really, anything would work!
Cranberry Brie Bites
Our love for crescent roll recipes is no secret. Why make dough from scratch when everyone loves the canned stuff?! These little guys are the perfect appetizer to make during the holidays. Not only do they come together in seconds, but they also disappear in seconds too! Canned cranberries work great, but if you’ve got homemade cranberry sauce leftover, use it!
Melon Prosciutto Skewers
The classic sweet and salty combination of cantaloupe and prosciutto will never go out of style. The addition of fresh basil and creamy mozzarella makes a good thing even better. These *classy* skewers are the easy summer app you’ve been searching for. If you’re feeling fancy, make the balsamic glaze from scratch!
The list above 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 your regular rotation of sweet potato chips or hard-boiled eggs and hello to flavors on every end of the spectrum.
