5 Super Low Calorie Hunger Buster Snacks you really Must Try

Looking for a 3 o'clock fix? How about a post-workout energy boost? These healthy, low-calorie snacks can get you through any diet craving.

5 super low calorie snacks that I am digging right now.  My kids love them too!

Pudding Pops -- 1 pkg instant pudding, 1 1/2c milk, 2c cool whip. Dissolve pudding in milk, whip in cool whip. Spoon into 3 oz Dixie cups and insert Popsicle stick. Freeze.

A healthy refreshing 100 calorie freeze snack using Yo plait Light Yogurt. You get any of your fav flavors of yo plait light yogurt and basically you just turn the yogurts upside down, cut out the out the bottoms, cover with foil and pop through your Popsicle stick. then freeze for a few hours. then remove them (run the plastic part under some hot water for easy removal!) Delicious!

Roasted chick peas - watch your portions.  I divided mine right away into baggies to get the portion correct to make sure this tempting snack staying under 100 calories

3 Ingredient Banana Cookies - how could it get any easier? (original recipe from Skinnytaste.com)

-2 medium/large ripe bananas
-1 cup uncooked quick oats
-1/4 cup of walnuts, chocolate chips, or peanut butter chips
(or any other mix-in of your choice!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray or line it with parchment paper or a splat. Mash the bananas well, and combine them in a medium bowl with the oats. Fold in the walnuts or baking chips - or whatever mix-in you are using. Place by the tablespoonful on prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes, until cookies are firm and lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheet and let cool completely on cooling rack. Makes approximately 16 cookies.

Frozen yogurt bits.  Just coat berries with some vanilla flavored yogurt and pop in the freezer.  Eat right away or they become soggy.

I like to have a supply of these little frittata (or crustless quiche) in the fridge at all times.  They are a nice and filling snack and they can be 'to go'!  Saute up some vegetable of choice and put in a greased muffin tray.  Add egg beaters or whipped eggs to the tray and top with a little bit of cheese.  Super low in calories and are very filling.

Plan to eat or plan to fail.  No matter what your goals are, planning is key!


  1. Your roasted chick peas looks awesome! Do you have a recipe??

  2. You showed how to make the frittatas but never mentioned how long to bake or the temp....or did I miss it somewhere?

  3. Cook the eggs until set, about 20 minutes at 350.

  4. My go to for the chick peas is:


    But, lately I have been adding some spice!
