Five on Friday: Healthy Snacks with Our Bloggers’ Connection

Join us each month as we round up our favorite seasonal posts from the Cooking Light Blogger Connection.

This month’s theme is healthy snacks, and we've got everything from kale chips to snack mix.

1. Nacho Cheese Kale Chips: Although they mimic the taste of cheese, these chips from The Roasted Root are actually dairy-free. A mixture of tahini, nutritional yeast, and olive oil does the trick—and a drizzle of sriracha adds a welcomed hint of heat.

2. Paper-bag Microwave Popcorn: While we may not be keen on pre-packaged popcorn, a stovetop pop can seem to drag out forever. This paper bag trick from The Way to His Heart means freshly popped kernels in just 3 minutes.

3. Paleo Snack Mix: This drool-worthy mix from Cook Eat Paleo is packed with smoky flavor and garlicky-spice. Just in time for Super Bowl Sunday—and with this addicting mix, you'll be the star of the party.

4. Fill-Me-Up Adaptable Oat Bars: If you’re in the market for a heartier snack, try these chocolate-y oat bars from The Happiness in Health. Great for busy mornings or after-school snacks.

5.  Peanut Butter Sandwich Graham CrackersSandwich crackers are a classic snacking staple, and Teaspoon of Spice has mastered these grahams. Pack them on travel days for a quick and healthy pick-me-up.
