10 Easy Granola Bar & Energy Bite Recipes

I’m not talking about soup today, but I am talking about my longtime good intentions to practice meal prepping. Why haven’t I done it consistently? No good reason, other than procrastination and laziness, I guess!

Good intentions are not enough. They’ve never put an onion in the soup yet. —Sonya Levien

I’ve had good intentions for a long time, but without action good intentions don’t go anywhere!

Today, I’m taking baby steps and am sharing my meal prep snack ideas plus a collection of 10 granola bar and energy bite recipes from a few of my blogging friends. If I can prep these quick snack ideas for the week, so can you!

Quick Snack Ideas to Prep for the Week

Let’s start with the easy stuff and the right containers. This set of GoodCook Meal Prep two-compartment snack containers is compact and perfect for portion control.

Yes, I’m the person who can eat an entire bag of chips or popcorn if I’m not careful! These ideas for quick morning or afternoon snacks don’t require any cooking or real prep work—you’ve got this! 

  • Yogurt + granola + fresh fruit (strawberries, blueberries, etc.)
  • Salami + olives + sharp cheddar cheese slices
  • Apple slices + trail mix
  • Dried apple or banana chips + peanut butter
  • Hummus + carrot or celery sticks
  • Almonds or mixed nuts + cheese
  • Ham and cheese roll-up (a slice of deli ham with cheese in the center) + pickle
  • Cantaloupe + prosciutto + balsamic vinegar
  • Vegetable sticks + low-fat ranch dressing
  • Popcorn + M&Ms + peanuts (live a little!)
