Quick Snack Recipes are easy to find and make, but when it comes to looking for them, many of us resort to nothing. Sound confusing? What I mean, is that most of us resort to grabbing a bag of chips or a few cookies rather than taking the time to mix up a snack of sorts. But these quick snack recipes I've put together for you today are super easy and you can throw them together at the snap of a finger! And most of them are much more healthy and less fattening then a bag of potato chips would be. You also have the advantage of making most of these snacks in large quantities and refrigerating or storing the other half away for later. So Go ahead, get ready to feast on these quick snack recipes!

One of my favorite all-time go-to fast recipes is fruit and dip. I LOVE fruit and dip, and so does my husband, so we have it often! Our favorite fruits to have with this dip are pineapple, grapes, strawberries, cantaloupe and bananas.
