Prep these snack recipes in advance so that you have them ready when hunger strikes! They are from-scratch copycat versions of your favorite store-bought snacks. You’ll be surprised to learn how easy it is to make them at home!
Why You Should Make Snacks From Scratch
By making these classic snacks at home instead of buying them at a store, you can better control the quantities of salt and sugar and choose quality ingredients that you love.
Goldfish are incredibly easy to make from scratch. The only tricky part is cutting them all out so small, however there is really no need to do that. You can make this snack together with your kids and experiment with all different kinds of fun shapes!
I make round graham crackers (yeah, I'm a rebel!). They taste just like the store-bought ones, but fresher.
You can't get much easier than crackers made with a single ingredient!
I love homemade fruit roll-ups because you can completely control what you put in them. These banana Nutella fruit rollups are favorites around here!
Pixy stix? Yes! When you make them at home, you can control how much sugar you use. I use fruit powder made by freezing dried fruit and I add sugar to taste.
These apple chips are extra fun because you can make them in all different shapes. We like to sprinkle a little cinnamon and sugar on them.
Homemade Ritz crackers with a little peanut or almond butter and a few carrots make for a great snack!
Toasted coconut chips are totally addictive and super easy to make! You can try making them in all different kinds of flavors.
Once you try roasting chickpeas, you'll wonder why you never did it before. They have a great crunch, can be spiced however you like, and end up being just as addictive as popcorn!
