Salty vs. Sweet: Our Favorite Munchies

It's the age old dilemma, you're hankering badly for a snack, but do you want salty or sweet? We've got you covered for both options!

Sweet:

Chocolate never fails to satisfy. Throw in some nuts and dried fruit, and you can almost pretend you're eating healthy trail mix!

Similar in flavor to a fruit tart due to the shortbread crust, these fruit bars are an easy treat to make-ahead and devour later.

It's easy to turn to pre-made snacks when the munchies urge strikes, but these homemade versions of a popular sandwich cookie are worth the extra effort.

 

Salty:

Don't just nosh on a sad and cold cheese stick, a baked version is the ideal snack.

Get delightfully crunchy and salty chips, plus a serving of greens.

A million times better than anything on the store shelves, these crackers can easily be customized (curry, spicy, etc.) to meet whatever you're craving.

The Compromise: 

With these cookies you don't face any hard decisions, just get the best of both worlds.
