The 10 Best Healthy Super Bowl Snacks

Game Day is nearly here! Are you gearing up to host this year’s Super Bowl party with your friends and family? The Super Bowl is a great time to get together and root for your favorite team, but if you snack on one chicken wing too many, you’ll be in no mood to celebrate.

Instead, consider these 10 healthy Super Bowl snacks to stay happy and fed while you cheer for either the 49ers or the Chiefs.

P.S. These Super Bowl food ideas may be “healthy,” but your game day guests won’t be able to taste the difference!

  1. Hummus-stuffed mini peppers

Jazz up the normal “chips and dips” offering at your party. This snack is not only delicious and convenient for a crowd, but it’s easy to put together at the last minute. 

Simply buy a bag of mini peppers, slice them in half, and fill them with store bought hummus. If you’re feeling fancy, you can top them with paprika and green onions. Display everything on a platter and you’re good to go!

  1. “Cheese” dip crostini

Have you heard of yogurt “cheese” before? This is a product you get from straining the moisture out of yogurt, leaving a creamy, thick “cheese” that’s like cream cheese. That means you get to enjoy the luscious texture of cream cheese with the benefits of yogurt!

Buy a quart of unsweetened, unflavored yogurt and strain it in a nut milk sack overnight. In the morning, stir in a few tablespoons of mayo, roasted garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, and green onions. Serve the dip either with fresh veggies or crostini. 

  1. Tasty gluten-free pop bitties

Don’t have time to prep anything? Sometimes you just need to pick up a healthy Super Bowl snack that you can open, toss into a bowl, and offer to your guests. If that’s you, try a bag of pop bitties. Available in 4 scrumptious flavors - brown sugar and cinnamon, classic sea salt, buttery white cheddar and half dressed sea salt- this popped sorghum snack is a sneaky way to eat more whole-grains—plus, it’s allergen-friendly, gluten-free, and corn-free making it easy to digest! Move over popcorn - pop bitties are bound to be your new favorite healthy snack!

  1. Buffalo cauliflower

Buffalo chicken wings are a game day staple, but these heavenly fried nuggets can wreak havoc on your stomach. Get your buffalo fix without regret: make buffalo cauliflower instead. Use this recipe to make gluten-free cauliflower bites that are crunchy and oh-so-good. 

  1. Spiced chickpeas

Need a tasty snack in a hurry? Pick up a can of chickpeas and turn them into a snackable bowl of spiced chickpeas. We love this recipe; don’t be afraid to add your own extra seasonings to jazz up the flavor. 

  1. Pistachio-orange yogurt cups

Sure, cookies are a Super Bowl dessert of choice, but who needs a sugar crash right before the fourth quarter? This game day dessert can be portioned out into individual cups or served in a big dish—you do you. 

Pipe unsweetened store bought yogurt in the bottom of the cup. On top, layer fresh orange slices. Sprinkle with pistachios and a kiss of honey. If you’re concerned about nut allergies, you can use nut-free granola instead of pistachios. Vegans can sub the honey for agave nectar. 

  1. Zucchini muffins

Zucchini gets a bad rap, but it’s mighty tasty in muffin form. Plus, muffins are a perfect way to treat your guests with something sweet—without the cleanup. Use this recipe to make zucchini muffins so tasty your guests won’t even know they’re gluten-free. 

  1. Spinach artichoke dip

Spinach artichoke dip is another Super Bowl party staple. But while it’s delicious, it’s normally chock-full of calories (and very few vegetables). We like this recipe as a lighter take on the traditional spinach artichoke dip. Opt for baked chips or fresh veggies for dipping instead of fried tortilla chips. 

  1. Fruit skewers

Keep things light and fresh at your game day gathering with fruit skewers. Cut up apples, kiwi, strawberries, and bananas and serve them on skewers. Guests can help themselves while you focus on cheering for your team. 

  1. Falafel with tzatziki

Need something more filling for your Super Bowl party? Falafel and tzatziki are a classic combination that’s not only filling, but delicious! Swing by the grocery store to pick up a pack of gluten-free falafel. If frozen isn’t available, most grocery stores carry a dry mix, too. Pair the falafel with pre-made tzatziki to fill your guests up while you’re waiting for kickoff.
