13 Healthy Snacks: Sweet, Simple and Delicious

1. Red Peppers stuffed with Confetti Guacamole

13 Healthy Snacks: Sweet, Simple and Delicious

What the heck is confetti guacamole, you ask? I don’t know. It’s the name that came to me as I was mixing creamy avocados with tons of veggies, including kale, onion, jalapeno, and zucchini. The little flecks of bell pepper and kale looked like shreds of confetti in a sea of pale green. But you could call this “fully loaded” guacamole, “veggie-stuffed” guacamole, “rainbow” guacamole, or just “guacamole with kale, bell pepper, onions, zucchini, and chickpeas.” That would sum it up, too.

3. Strawberry Oatmeal Bars

13 Healthy Snacks: Sweet, Simple and Delicious

What I appreciate about this recipe is that it is relatively simple and easy. There is no need for any special equipment at all, not even a hand held mixer. If you do not have a pastry blender, just use two forks or butter knives to cut the butter in the flour. The hardest part of the recipe is probably the waiting for the baked goodie to cool completely before cutting as it can be a little soft when warm. The wonderful aroma makes it even more so.

10. Baked Carrot Chips

Carrot Recipes #ASpicyPerspective

Healthy Baked Carrot Chips are one of the most tantalizing vegetable chips because they are naturally sweet and turn very crisp in the oven. You can bake them on low or high heat, and achieve the same crisp texture and flavor. However they seem to be more attractive, with a brighter color, when baked on high heat for a short amount of time.
