28 Nut Snack Recipes for Healthier Snacking

These nut snack recipes are a healthier way to snack. They feature almonds, cashews, pecans, walnuts, pistachios and more, with tasty spices and flavorings.

If you’re looking for an all-occasion snack that’s not potato chips, popcorn or crackers, nut snack recipes offer a fun alternative. There are tons of things you can do with various types of nuts.

You can go for sweet, salty or savory flavors, or all of the above. And because they’re so easy to store, they’ll travel anywhere that chips or crackers will. Take them on the road, to the office, or just keep them at home.

Nuts are rich in fat and protein, which makes them more satisfying and filling than a lot of starch-based treats. And if you’re trying to stick to a low-carb or gluten-free diet, many of these snacks can be a wonderfully tasty replacement for the snacks you’re missing.

The other thing I love about these nut snack recipes is that they’re so simple. There’s no complex prep. When there’s any cooking to be done, it’s pretty simple.

And if you want to put more of one ingredient than a recipe calls for, it almost always works. Or if you want to leave out an ingredient, your recipe will still come out right.

Any of these recipes can and should be varied, according to your taste. The type of nut used isn’t the only one that’ll taste good, and the ingredients need not be exact. Be creative and have fun!
