Black Bean Hummus
Very Good 4.2/5

Smoky from the cumin with a hidden serving of vegetables, this dip is equally delicious in a burrito as it is spread on tortilla chips.

All Natural Fruit and Nut Granola Bars
Very Good 4.9/5
(7 ratings)

Although these contain approximately 200 calories each, they are an all natural granola bar, rich in omega-3 fatty acid with 4 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein. To save on some calories, you can make this without the ground flaxseed meal and almonds to make each bar approximately 150-160 calories each. If you don't have the dried fruit and nut mixutre, you can just use any kind of dried fruit - raisins, craisins, prunes (chopped), mangoes (chopped), papaya... you get the idea

Roasted Nuts & Seeds Snacks
Very Good 4.5/5
(2 ratings)

Have you ever tasted roasted nuts fresh from the oven? MMMM! Before I started making this snack, DH used to bring home bags of chips and salty snacks and neither of us could resist them. Now I make up a month of salt-free, heart-healthy snacks that take care of our savory cravings and give us our healthy fats for the day. Store in zip-lock snack bags and you are ready to grab and go whenever the munchies hit. Great to keep in the glove box for when you need a snack on the run. (my discount grocery store has a bulk food section with all kinds of raw nuts)
