73 Healthy Paleo Snacks You Will Love

Written by ziir

One part of the Paleo dieting philosophy is to not feel like foods are forbidden, but rather to cut them out because they’re not good for you. This means that all of the pre-packaged snack foods for sale should be trumped by snacks you make for yourself out of natural foods. Luckily Paleo-inspired cooks and chefs have been hard at work coming up with delicious and interesting ways to get your snack on, so enjoy!

73 Healthy Paleo Snacks- to keep you satisfied between meals.

Crunchy Paleo Granola Bars

Granola bars are easy to make at home, are usually less expensive than the boxed supermarket version, and make the most satisfying paleo snack ever! They provide natural energy and fuel to get you through your day and are easy to pack along for a hike or for long trips in the car. There are only three surprisingly simple steps to make the bars, and you can alter the ingredients to your liking.

Crunchy Paleo Granola Bars

Ingredients
2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
1 1/2 cups almonds

3. Spoon the granola into a flat, even layer in the prepared baking pan. Bake for 18-22 minutes until golden brown. Let cool completely before cutting into bars. Store in the refrigerator.

Paleo Apple Pie Muffins

Get all of the delicious flavors of apple pie in a simple paleo muffin. Cinnamon, ginger, and cloves add delicious spicy notes to the dessert, accenting the sweet diced apple. The type of apple that you use can slightly change the flavor, from red Gala apples to tart Granny Smiths.

Broiled Grapefruit with Honey

Broiled grapefruit is a delicious warm snack or breakfast for a cold day. The natural sugar in the honey soaks into the tangy fruit, while at the same time caramelizing the top layer.

Paleo Baked Grapefruit Fruit Snack

Ingredients

2 grapefruits
1 banana, sliced
Honey, for drizzling
Cinnamon, for sprinkling

Paleo Gingerbread Bars

All of the classic flavors of gingerbread cookies are replicated in these moist and fluffy Paleo-friendly bars. Molasses provides the base of the warm, spicy flavor.

Orange Cranberry Paleo Scones

Paleo Strawberry Chia Pudding

Chia pudding has become popular from its tapioca-like texture and because it is packed with nutrition from the chia seeds.

The pudding will become thicker the longer it is refrigerated. Top with additional strawberries, mint, cocoa nibs, or coconut flakes for added sweetness.
