Sometimes we just need a new spin on ingredients to brighten up our snacks, and sometimes, bare bones snacking can lead to the most  creative options.

Below are three 3-ingredient easy snack recipes born out of either the need for “something new” requested by my toddler (which I require to be nutrient dense when possible!) or the need for a high-quality fat/protein/carb snack for myself for energy.

Optional Add-In: Feel free to add a scoop or two of collagen peptides or your protein powder of choice to each of these snacks for additional nutritional benefits. You may need to adjust wet and dry ingredients accordingly for the Coco Nut Butter Balls so they are not too dry – try adding an additional 1/2 – 1 Tbsp more nut butter.

Banana Nut Butter Mash

     Ingredients: 

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 Tbsp nut butter of choice (almond butter, peanut butter, coconut butter, etc.)
  • generous cinnamon

     Directions:

  1. Slice and mash the banana in a small bowl or ramekin with a fork.
  2. Stir in nut butter.
  3. Sprinkle cinnamon and stir to combine.
  4. Enjoy!

Avocado Banana Bowl

    Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 ripe small avocado
  • 2 Tbsp ground flaxseed (Try these Carrington Farm Go-Paks for no-fuss measuring. They offer flax paks as well as flax-chia blend paks.)

             Directions:

  1. Slice and mash the banana in a small bowl with a fork.
  2. Slice the avocado into small chunks. Add to the bowl and mash, if desired.
  3. Sprinkle on flaxseed.
  4. Stir to combine.
  5. Enjoy!

Coco Nut Butter Balls

     Ingredients: 

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 4 Tbsp nut butter of choice (almond butter, peanut butter, coconut butter, etc.)
  • generous cinnamon

     Directions:

  1. Add all three ingredients to a bowl.
  2. Stir and mash to combine until dough is no longer sticky from the nut butter but more like a floured cookie dough.
  3. Using your hands, form small quarter-sized balls and place on a small parchment paper-lined tray (if you plan to eat your snack today) or in an airtight container (if you plan to save your snack for another day).
  4. Allow balls to harden at least 20 min in the fridge.
  5. Enjoy!
