7 Veggie Snacks You'll Actually Want To Eat

Fall is one of the best seasons for fresh produce, with all manners of green and leafy veggies, squash, corn, sweet potatoes and more in full bloom and ready for pickin’ and eatin’. With so many affordable and delectable choices when it comes to snacking healthfully, it’s really a wonder sometimes that I find myself reaching for the potato chips instead of some equally mouthwatering (and much healthier) options like Mediterranean-inspired cucumber roll-ups, baked broccoli tots or a seven-layer veggie dip.

Well, I’m taking a stand! Below are seven extremely easy recipes that utilize fresh veggies in fun ways, and are perfect for incorporating the whole family in as you make them together!


7 Veggie Snacks You’ll Actually Want To Eat

1. Healthy Baked Broccoli Tots at Gimme Delicious Food

Broccoli, egg, cheddar cheese, onion and breadcrumbs—these tots are a delicious and flavorful alternative to the fried potato kind!

2. Crispy Parmesan Garlic Edamame at Homemade Hooplah

Edamame—a fancy way to describe “soybeans”—are loaded with protein and will keep you feeling full for hours. You can’t go wrong with a light dusting of parmesan to top it off.

3. Veggie Loaded 7-Layer Dip at Little Broken

Gone are the cheese, sour cream and other high calorie “layers” in this well-known dip—this veggie loaded version is heavy on the fresh tomatoes, corn, onions, black beans and lettuce.

4. Mediterranean Cucumber Roll-Ups at The Wholesome Dish

These are easy to make as long as you have a vegetable peeler—slice the cucumber real thin, then add roasted garlic hummus, feta cheese and roasted red peppers. Perfect for parties!

5. Vegetable Rolls with Spicy Nut Sauce at Camille Styles

These rolls are made with several fresh veggies, rice paper and a spicy sauce with nut butter, ginger and coconut sugar for a truly memorable treat.

6. Zucchini Carrot Spice Muffins at The Best of This Life

The perfect choice for fall, these muffins are full of healthy carrots and zucchinis and get their spice from nutmeg. A bit of applesauce keeps them moist!

7. Avocado Dill Dip at Table and Hearth

Another great option for get-togethers, this fresh and filling avocado dip has an added tang from Greek yogurt, dill, celery salt and of course—avocados!


What do you think? Will you be giving these veggie-full snacks a try?

    Thank you for writing Emily, and thank for posting this on your blog Sandy. Fall indeed is such a tremendous time of year in this part of Canada for fresh produce.
    I wonder myself why I reach for unhealthy choices such as potato chips.
