Snack Recipes

When I’m looking for snacks to tide me over until the next meal I try and keep it simple — but also make sure it’s good for me at the same time. As a professional chef, the benefits of the food I put into my body are very important to me. 

 I have lots of different snack recipes from Sweet & Spicy Nuts, Kale Chips or my personal favorite snack: Homemade Granola Bars

Top Pro Chefs Tips to Making your Own Snacks

  • The microwave can be an extremely useful tool when making Big & Bold snacks. Did you know you can make Microwave Potato Chips? Low in calories, cost-effective and really satisfying! 
  • Yogurt makes for great snacks! High in protein, low in added sugar and best of all, filing! Frozen Yogurt Bark and Frozen Yogurt Pops are always a crowd-pleaser.
  • Think of your snacks as fuel to keep your engine running. Oats are the perfect snack food because they are both filling AND they slowly release energy for hours after you have eaten them, keeping you full until your next meal. My Homemade Granola Bars will keep you going until lunch!
