Healthy Snack List for the Fall #8

Halloween is over, and we hope that all of our readers had a safe and fun time. We certainly hope that they enjoyed snacks without going overboard on sugar. However, the fall season is just starting: Thanksgiving and other December holidays like Christmas and Hanukkah are close. Consequently, there are plenty of upcoming opportunities for people to indulge in Fall-themed snacks.

If you want to continue your healthy snacking habit, or if you broke it for Halloween and want to start anew, we’ve made a new list of healthy Fall-time snacks. This list is unique because it includes snack ideas we hadn’t heard of or thought up before but know will taste great.

We are starting our list with a barbeque-flavored spin on a classic snack.

1. BBQ Popcorn

Don’t let the title of this snack fool you: we aren’t recommending that you slather a bowl of popcorn with sugary and sodium-rich barbeque sauce. Instead, you should take barbeque seasoning, chili powder, paprika, salt, and onion powder, then drizzle it over popcorn in the same way you would sugar or cinnamon.

The spicy and barbeque flavor will mix excellently with the popcorn, creating a snack you wish you had tried sooner.

Popcorn can be a healthy snack because it’s low in calories and high in fiber. Spices can also be beneficial because they contain antioxidants and help manage a person’s blood sugar.

2. Soft Pumpkin Granola Bars

Granola is a popular healthy snack, but we bet our readers haven’t considered trying this particular variation. With this recipe, you take a can of pumpkin puree, cans of rolled oats, eggs, milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, baking powder, and chopped nuts, mix them in a bowl, then create bars on a baking sheet that you then place in the oven. After you cook the bars at 400 degrees for over half an hour, take them out, and let them cool. Presto! You have a soft, nut-filled granola bar with the wonderful taste of pumpkin, cinnamon, and vanilla mixed in.

This snack is great because it’s lower in sugar than a regular candy or granola bar.

This bar is heavy with fiber, antioxidants, and fiber due to the mixed oats, nuts, and pumpkins. Pumpkins contain a lot of vitamins A, C, and E. This means that this snack can help boost your immune system.

3. Apple Crisp Oatmeal

Like granola, oatmeal is also a popular healthy snack, and for a good reason: it’s an incredibly versatile dish capable of making yummy, savory, or sweet variations.

This recipe is a simple one that’s easier to make compared to the pumpkin granola bar. This dish mixes sliced apples, sugar-free maple syrup, ground cinnamon, vanilla extract, and apple pie seasoning into an oatmeal bowl. And with that, you have an excellent tasting and low-sugar, a high nutrient bowl of oatmeal that’s every bit as satisfying as a slice of apple pie!

Oatmeal contains fiber and antioxidants, as do apples. Eating apples can also improve your heart, gut, and brain health!


This list was an excellent opportunity to learn about recipes we had never heard of before but couldn’t wait to try. After reading this article, we hope that you feel the same way. We also hope you feel this way about our next article on this topic.
