Snacks For the Road

One of the questions I get often is, “How do I eat clean when traveling?”

Since summer is usually when many of us take vacations and go on road trips, this question is even more common this time of year.

So, I put together a list of 20 PERFECT road trip snacks you can prepare and enjoy during whatever plans you may have this Summer! 

1. Trail Mix Granola Bars

Crunchy, nutty, chewy, and slightly sweet. You’ve just found your new favorite grab-n-go snack to fuel your adventures.

Granola bars are honestly the best travel snacks! Bonus: they’re packed with energy through complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, and fiber!

2. High Energy Snack Box

If you need to keep energy up during your vacation plans, this snack box is for you! It’s a cold snack that’ll stay good for a few hours until hunger hits. These types of things are super convenient when there’s no kitchen available to heat things up.

3. Crispy Crunchy Air-Fryer Sweet Potato Chips

These crispy sweet potato chips are absolutely irresistible, the perfect amount of salty and sweet to satisfy that craving! They’re easy to throw together in a bag and take with you on the road. 

4. Homemade (copycat) Aussie Bites

Make a pack of these and take them wherever you’re headed because everyone will love them!

They look like bite-sized lil’ mini-muffins and are made of various seeds, ground nuts, chopped dried fruits, and a bit of healthy oil. Definitely a family favorite!

5. Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Oat Muffins

Have early morning travel plans? These muffins work as snacks AND an on-the-go breakfast. ​​

This is a budget-friendly recipe to help bulk up your family meals anytime you want to stretch your trips to the store. It’s a quick and easy recipe with impressive results, too!

6. Homemade Ranch Delight Bento Boxes

Eat Clean Homemade Ranch Delight Bento Boxes

Throw a small insulated cooler in your bag or lunchbox with these bento boxes to keep them cool all day!

They make little ones, which you can find at our local store or on Amazon.

It’ll be worth it because these are tasty and packed with nutrients.

7. Blueberry Lemon Power Bites

Blueberry Lemon Power Bites are an EXCELLENT nutrient-packed treat for children and growing teenagers.

Bright lemon flavor combined with dried blueberries is reminiscent of a summertime cobbler or pie with tons of protein and an easy travel food.

8. Easy Baked Tortilla Chips

Sure, chips like these are best with a dip (which you can make and take with you; here are some options), but I like them even without anything to dip them in!

They’re delicious, and I feel good knowing I have carefully selected each ingredient.

9. Kitchen Sink Monster Cookies

I mean, who doesn’t love cookies and wants more reasons to enjoy them?

Honestly, you can enjoy these for breakfast too! I’ve provided substitutions for most of the ingredients, so mix & match ingredients to find your favorite combos.

10. Low Carb Sandwich Roll-ups

These are fantastic in the Summertime because you can just throw the ingredients in a cooler and head up to the mountains or down to the beach and have a SUPER low-fuss meal so you can simply enjoy yourself!

11. Bistro Snack Boxes

Tuck your little snack packs in a small cooler with some ice, and you’re ready for an afternoon adventure! If it’s not your favorite, then let these boxes be the inspiration to help you create your version for your family’s tastebuds. 

12. Sticky Cauliflower Bites

Crave-worthy delicious little bites with the most flavorful sauce for your afternoon snacks!

Cauliflower is rich in antioxidants and low in carbs and calories…plus it’s a good source of choline, which helps your metabolism, cell health, and supports many processes in your body.

13. Chocolate Almond No-Bake Truffles

Make some chocolate truffles to satisfy your sweet tooth AND provide the necessary fuel for your busy, fun-filled days! No-bake and less than 20 minutes of hands-on time.

14. Crispy Garlicy Kale Chips

Clean Extra Crispy Garlicy Kale Chips

Are chips your go-to travel snack? If so, then you should save this recipe! Kale is a superfood, but what’s wonderful about these chips is that they hit the spot when you’re craving something salty and crispy. 

15. Peanut Butter Rice Cakes

You can’t get a more simple snack recipe than these peanut butter rice cakes! The PB + Chocolate combo combined with the rice cakes’ crunchy texture is beyond satisfying and delivers on the flavor!

16. Roasted Parmesan Cabbage Chips

Here’s one more chip recipe for you!

Cabbage is an underrated vegetable that is not only tasty when cooked well but also low in calories and high in nutrients and fiber.

17. Baked Artichoke Hearts

These are a super easy snack and side dish.

You’ll only need a few simple ingredients and a few minutes of hands-on time, and you’ll be snacking on these crispy, satisfying, flavorful lil’ artichoke hearts!

18. Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Bark

This is a fun one to make with the kids, and maybe even look forward to the autumn days several months from now when pumpkins will be everywhere!

I love food “craft” ideas like this that allow you to enjoy creativity (which is important for our brains and stress levels) while not being *too* much work.

19. Veggie Hummus Wrap Box

Here’s another cold snack box to tuck into your bag with an ice pack, so it’ll still be good hours later.

This particular box is also great as a quick lunch that you can enjoy on the road, at the zoo, during a picnic, after a hike, at the beach, or wherever your Summer plans may take you!

20. 3-Ingredient Banana Oatmeal Cookies

We often make these at our house as after-school snacks and even a quick grab-go breakfast occasionally. With only 3 ingredients, these cookies are incredibly simple and easy on the wallet!

See? You don’t have to sacrifice your health to enjoy vacation plans or get through the busier seasons!

Hopefully, you’ve found something that’ll make your life a little easier.
