2. Satisfy a dessert craving with fruit and oats baked together in magical harmony.


These 100-calorie bars are best when you use super ripe, in-season strawberries. They're good enough for dessert, but good-for-you enough to pass for breakfast.

3. Munch on crispy baked chickpeas instead of chips.


These chickpeas are super simple to make, but they taste just complex enough, thanks to lemon zest and a little bit of Parmesan. Bring 'em to work, or use them to satisfy an after-dinner craving.

4. Or try this ramped-up edamame.


Edamame is a great unprocessed snack, but it can get a little plain. Here's a way to make it a little more exciting with just a few basic ingredients. No cooking required.

5. Your new go-to snack/dessert? Chocolate-dipped almond butter banana bites.

7. Make your own healthyish pita chips.


Pita chips aren't exactly a superfood, but they're pretty healthy if you use whole grain pita to make your own. Pick your favorite flavor, or make a couple different kinds so that you always have what you're in the mood for.
