    23 Healthy Power Snacks That Actually Taste Good

    Easy and healthy snacks that actually taste good.

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community for their favorite healthy power snacks. Here are the must-try results.

    1. Blueberry breakfast parfait pops:

    These on-the-go bars only contain three ingredients: greek yogurt, berries, and crushed-up breakfast biscuits. It doesn't get much better than that.


    2. Zucchini pizza bites:

    This is a healthy pizza alternate that actually tastes good. The best part? You won't feel guilty about eating five (or 50) of them.


    3. Peanut butter banana energy bites:

    This is the ultimate power snack. Not a fan of chocolate chips? Feel free to swap in some dried fruit instead for an even healthier option.


    4. Roasted edamame and almond snack mix:

    You can't beat this high-protein snack. They're even good with roasted chickpeas, but you can honestly add anything to this mix.


    5. Raw chocolate avocado pudding:

    Who said dessert can't be healthy? This vegan-friendly snack only has a few ingredients, but you can totally mix and match. You can add in things like dates or swap out the maple syrup for honey. A win-win situation.


    6. Japanese cucumber salad:

    If you're ever craving something salty and crunchy but don't want to indulge on potato chips, sliced cucumbers with soy sauce is a great alternative (and here's a way to elevate that even more).


    7. Avocado slices with seasoning: / Via

    Add your favorite seasoning (like Adobo) to some avocado slices for a quick and nutritious bite. It sounds really simple, and that's because it is.


    8. Healthy oatmeal banana cookies:

    With only five ingredients, this is a true guilt-free breakfast. Want to upgrade them even more? Feel free to add in some peanut butter or almond butter.


    9. Greek yogurt veggie dip:

    Substituting the traditional sour cream and mayo for Greek yogurt makes this a much healthier option. And it still tastes great!


    10. Peanut butter, banana, and rice cakes:

    Rice cakes may seem boring, but they're a great substitute for bread if you're trying to watch your calorie intake. You can spice it up with any kind of toppings, but you can't go wrong with classics like peanut butter and banana.


    11. Baked apple chips with cinnamon:

    There's no added sugar, and you definitely won't feel guilty if you eat 100 of these.


    12. Oatmeal cookie banana "nice" cream:

    This banana-based dessert is sort of like a smoothie but has the consistency of gelato. It's got a bunch of protein, no added sugar, and only takes about five minutes to make.


    13. Egg white and oatmeal pancakes:

    Want some extra protein? Add your favorite protein powder into the mix for a perfect post-workout meal.


    14. No-bake peanut butter and chocolate granola bars:

    These no-bake granola bars take practically no time to make, and you can fill them with any ingredients you want. They're a little higher in protein and fat, but that makes them great energy boosters for hiking or traveling.


    15. Easy 10-minute chili lime almonds:

    I love almonds, but let's be real... sometimes they can be pretty bland. Add these spices for a flavorful and healthy kick, and you'll never go back to eating plain almonds again.

    16. Peanut butter apple nachos:

    If you're in the mood for chocolate chip cookies but trying to eat healthier, look no further. This is the ultimate substitution guaranteed to satisfy your cravings.


    17. Smoked salmon and cucumber bites:

    Want to make this low-carb snack even tastier? Top each off with a little bit of cream cheese.


    18. Strawberry cheesecake yogurt parfait:

    Greek yogurt? Yum. Granola? Yum. Strawberries? Yum. Cream cheese? Yum. You literally can't go wrong with this simple, delicious, and healthy snack.


    19. Cinnamon bun air-popped popcorn:

    Making air-popped popcorn lets you control the amount of butter, oil, and salt that's added to it, so this cinnamon bun variation is actually healthy (and it even lets you add your favorite protein powder mix). It's a really cool alternative that'll satisfy any mood your tastebuds are in.


    20. Apple sandwiches with almond butter and granola:

    This three-ingredient snack is great if you just finished a workout, need a study session pick-me-up, or are lounging on the couch. Fast, simple, and delicious.


    21. Frozen Greek yogurt-covered blueberries:

    A lot of people swear by eating a handful of frozen grapes on a hot summer's day. And they're right. But this elevated approach is just as simple and even more delicious.


    22. Baked salami chips:

    This is the ultimate keto diet (low-carb, high-fat) snack. Baked salami and pepperoni taste SO good, and they pair even better with a roasted garlic white bean dip. You're welcome.


    23. And healthy five-minute avocado toast:

    Avocado toast can be as simple (avocados + seasoning) or intricate (avocados, eggs, veggies, etc.) as you'd like. These two variations are both healthy, easy, and delicious.
