9 Healthy Snacks Using Nut Butter

Break out of a boring snack rut with these nine healthy and easy nut butter snack ideas!

9 Healthy Snacks Using Nut Butter

Now that school is back in session, I am always looking for quick and easy snacks that I can make in 5 minutes or less. I don’t know about you but I always seem to realize I’m starving when I have 5 minutes until I have to leave the house or hop on a conference call.

As a result, I always have a pouch or two of RX Nut Butter on hand for high protein, low carb snacking on-the-go. Just like your favorite RXBars, their nut butter is made with simple ingredients you can pronounce and contain 9g of protein per pouch!

Nut Butter Oatmeal

Now available in five flavors, I’m so excited to share 9 healthy snack ideas using nut butter. For these recipes, I used their newest flavor, Maple Almond Butter, but truthfully these snacks would work well with ANY flavor. First up: drizzle it over oatmeal! Start with my 90 second microwave oatmeal recipe, top with fruit then drizzle with nut butter.

Nut Butter Pancakes

Speaking of breakfast, why should maple syrup have all the fun on your morning stack of pancakes? I love maple syrup as much as the next gal but it’s nothing but empty calories. The runny consistency of RX Nut Butter is ideal for pouring over pancakes and it’s a great way to boost the nutrition of your short stack.

Nut Butter Rice Cakes

Want a portable snack you can take to work or eat in the car between school drop-offs? Drizzle the maple almond nut butter over a brown rice cake then top with fresh raspberries. If your berries are super ripe, gently mash them with a fork to create a quick version of raspberry preserves creating a fun spin on PB&J.

Ants on a Log

If you want to keep the entire snack super low carb, nothing beats celery and nut butter. Add raisins and you’ve got ants on a log, a snack no kid (or adult) can resist!

Nut Butter Yogurt

Instead of buying sweetened yogurt full of added sugar, I love starting with whole milk plain yogurt and adding a touch of sweetness in the form of fresh berries and nut butter. Sprinkle with a little chia seed for added texture and crunch!

Nut Butter Filled Dates

Craving something salty? Try nut butter filled dates sprinkled with sea salt. These bites are so flavorful, you’ll only need one or two to satisfy your craving.

Banana Nut Butter

Want to go bananas instead? Be my guest! Sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg for even more flavor.

Nut Butter on Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe

Last but not least, we can’t forget to include just one dessert idea: chocolate ice cream drizzled with nut butter! Is there anything better in this world? I don’t think so.

What are YOUR favorite ways to use nut butter? I’d love to hear from you!
