Healthy Snack Recipes

Pin It!

One of the most common requests I receive is for “no bake” healthy snack recipes that can be made without a stove, without an oven, and without a microwave. Normally, each time someone asks for ideas, I respond with a long list of healthy snack recipes from my site… but then the commenter has to search for each of the links individually. So finally I’ve put all the no-bake healthy snack recipes in one place. This post is long overdue!

    Thanks for this post! I am getting a little obsessed with no bake snacks at the moment, this has some great ideas for me to use!

  2. Lisa says:

    Thanks for all the different options.
    I tend to just make the same things over and over until I’m sick of them; which probably is telling me I need to mix it up a bit more with more Snack options.

  3. Kaira says:

    I make your Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies all the time for my mommy. They make such a nice snack to grab out of the freezer. I’ve also made the pumpkin pie resees and love them.

  4. What a comprehensive list! The fudgicles look extra tempting!

  5. Karen says:

    This post is awesome! I am going to a circus day camp right now ( I’m 15) and when I come home I like to make myself a snack so it’s great to have this list of easy recipes!

    stunning selection of treats … well done
    the images a lovely and the recipes are amazing
    thank you for all your hard work, your inspirational

  7. Thais says:

    thanks for the snack ideas!
    I’ve been eating a lot of baked sweet potato and normal potato “fries” and coconut ice cream as snacks (they’re dairy free and also gluten free)

  8. This is post is timed perfectly, with the summer heat the last thing I want is to turn on the oven or stove…but still make delicious desserts! I made the peanut butter pie a few weeks ago for a birthday party and it was a wild success. Thanks for the amazing recipes!

  9. BakeMeABallerina says:

    My favorite snacks: CCK Peanut Butter Shake, canteloupe, and Nature Valley granola bars…and bananas dipped in peanut butter, and yoloberry yogurt…

  10. This is wonderful – Thanks for sharing! Those peanut butter eggs look awesome!

  11. Lilly says:

    Thanks for the round-up of no bake recipes! Perfect for quick and healthy snacks! The only thing is when I clicked on the cute gingerbreadman-looking cookies it took me to your zucchini fries?

    1. Karen w. says:

      The same thing happened to me when I clicked on that picture. There was also another link that didn’t work. It was for what look like peanut butter cups but had a white filling and when I clicked on it it just took me to an enlarged version of the photo.

      1. Yikes! I’m sorry about my mistake! The raw gingerbread recipe can be found here:
        And the coconut butter cups:
        Once again, sorry for the errors :(.

  12. Diandra says:

    You know what I like most about this post? From the look of it, al recipes contain chocolate, peanut butter OR BOTH. Thank you so very much. ^^

  13. Besides the fact that ALL of these look delicious, I have to say that I love the simplicity of the pics! I’m a fan of your food photography..simple, to the point, yet they portray the deliciousness of the food so well! I’m still working on mine, but I do think I’m getting better! 😉

    Planning is key to eating healthy, well-balanced meals, and snacks are no different. You need to have a game plan to keep yourself on track when hunger strikes. Stocking your fridge with ingredients for quick and healthy snacks can help you resist the vending machine when you’re at work or avoid that pint of ice cream in the freezer. So, whether you’re juggling family activities, work requirements or social commitments, keep on hand these quick recipe ideas to help you stay lean and healthy!

  15. Karen says:

    What a great post! It’s too hot where I am to turn on the oven. In this heat, I’m drawn to your avocado ice cream, 4 minute macaroons, and birthday cake rice krispies! Other than that, I go for hummus and veggies, coleslaw (with oil and apple cinder vinegar), and seasonal fruit (strawberries!). Any plans on making a stove top cookie? Or strawberry cobbler/short cake? I’m gluten free, sugar free, vegan so I appreciate how adaptable your recipes are. Keep up the amazing work!

  16. Great post!! I love your raw cookie dough bites!! It is currently 500 degrees in my house so I depend on “no bake” treats :)

  17. Love it! Especially in summer no one wants to be slaving over a hot stove. Thanks girl!

  18. Dawn says:

    I love your recipes , they rock, I have just one question, I have tried lots of sweets with beans, and no matter how long I rinse the beans , they all still have a funky bean like aftertaste, do I just have weirdly sensitive taste buds?

  19. Cookies n' Creme says:

    Thank you for this post! I JUST made your Copycat Mounds Bars, your chocolate/banana/coconut “good girl” fudge, and your Dark Chocolate Crunch Bars. My favorite was the Dark Chocolate Crunch Bars, and the Mounds bars. They’re just amazing!! Thanks so much for all the great recipes:)

    I’ve been following your blog for about 2 weeks now…And enjoying every minute of it!!

    1. tamber says:

      Coconut Crack Bars are Quick to Make&Taste So Good! Similar to Mounds Recipe,For Fans of Coconut!

  20. Cookies n' Creme says:

    I was just wondering about some substitutions. In some of your delish – looking pie recipes, you call for tofu. I can’t eat soy. Soooooo…………Mushrooms??????? Could that POSSIBLY work?! Like, maybe canned, and then blended smooth in the food processor?? Or, even if the texture was OK, would the taste be WAY TO overpowering? What do you think?

  21. Cookies n' Creme says:

    I guess if mushrooms don’t work, I can always just use soaked nuts, beans (the texture wouldn’t work for your Ultimate Fudge Pie, though) or bananas. (Except the bananas carry a flavor.)
    I just thought, mushrooms in a pie? I mean, if it worked and tasted awesome, I would have the joy of my life watching people’s eyes pop out when I tell them what’s in it. :) :) :)

  22. Cookies n' Creme says:

    So, I was thinking…..The texture of a beet (cooked) is lucious, (please excuse the spelling) rich, smooth, and buttery. Sweet, too. So, imagine a beet, sweet, lucious, rich, smooth and buttery, put in the food processor. IF it works how I’m imagining it, and IF the taste was changeable to something else……Imagine the endless possibilities…..Beet ice cream, beet pie, ………………… I was just brainstorming. Thought I’d share. Can’t wait for the garden to hurry up so I can cook some beets!

      Puree BEETS(1 can whole) In Food Processor Until Whipped Put In Red Velvet Cupcakes w/Cocoa Light &Fluffy Super Moist.Delicious! Try it

  23. Gorgeous, mouth-watering post! At Two Healthy Kitchens, we’re big fans of quick, easy (no-bake!), healthy snacks. So glad to have this handy post to recommend to others! Thanks, Katie!

  24. Nessa says:

    I love the colors of the smoothies!

  25. S says:

    Hrm… On the one hand I’m happy I found your site. On the other, I’m concerned I found your site. Healthy’s all well and good but it’s a shame you don’t have secrets for portion control too. 😉

    I look forward to trying most of these in the coming weeks.

    Need a nibble without a big slice of guilt to go with it? Tuck into a healthy snack, avoid that blood sugar dip and tide yourself over until dinner.

  28. Mrs. G says:

    I was inspired by your recipe for sugarless chocolate candy bars but didn’t want to use coconut oil and all that saturated fat. So I experimented with olive oil and cocoa powder and powdered artificial sweetner and froze it. Super creamy and YUM with no hint of olive taste! It is one part oil to two parts cocoa and one packet sweetner per Tablespoon of cocoa.

  29. Kelsey P says:

    I love baking but find myself pushing it right down the bottom on my list of priorities as soon as uni and work get a little busy.
    Great to have so many different delicious looking recipes in the one place to try out when I’m a little time poor.

  30. Kristin says:

    OMG! I can’t take my eyes off those pictures. They are just amazing and lovely, so the recipes. Love them all. Thank you :)

  31. Leah says:

    Thanks for this great post!! Big fan of your blog, love your recipes!!!

    Anyway, just wanted to let you know that the picture of the (gingerbread?) man links to crispy zucchini fries.:)

  32. Anne says:

    What great ideas for easy snacks! I’ve made your recipes for the no-bake peanut butter cookies, the no-bake chocolate peanut butter cookies, and the German chocolate no-bake cookies before–absolutely delicious. I actually didn’t even bother to make them into cookies–I just kept the dough in the fridge for when I needed a bite of something sweet! Thanks for all the great recipes!:)
