Hi Bold Bakers!
As you all know my recipes are about being Big and Bold! Over the years I’ve experimented with different ways to push the envelope when it comes to snacking. After looking through some of both your and my favorite recipes, I’ve decided to compile and share my top 5 microwave snack recipes.
You heard me right, these are snacks made with simple and delicious ingredients, and the best part is all you have to do is pop them in the microwave!
There is absolutely no shame in using this time-saving appliance to the max! When it comes to snacking I do not discriminate. I don’t know about you but it’s not how you make those snacks but how quickly you can get them into your mouth! These 5 recipes require just a few ingredients, are actually healthy for you, and are nothing short of addicting!
From classic potato chips and glazed spiced nuts to kale chips and sweet potato chips, I have you covered! My 5 microwave snacks are so simple you can make them in minutes anytime for yourself, yet so tasty I love to whip them up when I’m entertaining and cooking for a crowd.
Microwave Potato Chips
Wait, what? You didn’t know you can make perfectly crisp, crunchy potato chips in the microwave? Where have you been? Find out how to make my Microwave Potato Chips recipe.
Microwave Sweet and Spicy Nuts
This recipe is a great one to keep in your back pocket. Whether it be for entertaining, afternoon snacking, or your kid’s lunches, who doesn’t love delicious spiced mixed nuts?
For those of you who didn’t know, you can toast nuts in the microwave! After a quick toast, I add spices, honey, and siracha and pop the nuts back in the microwave for just a few short minutes. Find my Microwave Sweet and Spicy Nuts recipe here.
Microwave Kale Chips
These Microwave Kale Chips are made with just 3 ingredients, take 3 short minutes and are super healthy. What more could you ask for from a snack?
Homemade Microwave Popcorn
Homemade Microwave Popcorn is the best kind of fast food. It is low-fat, gluten-free, inexpensive and a great snack food. The best thing about making your own is that you get to control the ingredients that go into it, like real butter instead of a “butter-like substance” and so on.
Microwave Sweet Potato Chips
My Microwave Sweet Potato Chips are unbelievable! Your friends and family will not believe that you made these crispy chips at home and they will never know that you made them in minutes in the microwave! They are so crisp and crunchy and actually super healthy as they are made of just sweet potato and a touch of olive oil and salt.
