We asked Well+Good readers on Facebook for their favorite healthy snacks, and what did we get back? Mind-blowingly creative ideas worthy of a Food Network show. (Or a Well+Good article.)

These do-it-yourself snacks are so simple and easy, you’d barely call them recipes, and so smart you can tell they come from super-healthy eaters (not cellophane packages). We just had to share them with you.

Here are 16 DIY healthy snacks you’ll feel good about making—and great about eating.

Laura G: Granny smith apple with some sunflower seed butter. Yum!

Jennifer R: Homemade banana ice cream! Blend frozen bananas, fresh cocoa, and full fat coconut milk in a Vitamix. Delicious!

Maureen K: Seedless grapes with freshly toasted walnut halves!

Jen B.: Organic mango mixed in with raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries.

Jax W.: I make my own pudding with my chocolate protein powder by adding a lot less water, sometimes I’ll mix in some natural peanut butter. Sorta like a less-fat-and-calories Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup in a cup.

Jane J.: Kale chips!

Victoria P.:  Trail mix with almonds, pepitas, cranberries, and pecans. It’s addicting!

Nicole H.: I love plain soy yogurt with pumpkin butter and granola.

Liz M: Raw vegetables and hummus.

Sheigh C.: Ice cold radishes and spicy pumpkin seeds.

Caroll L: Popcorn popped in coconut oil, sprinkled with salt and nutritional yeast flakes.

Robin D.: Greek yogurt, local honey, fruit, and cashews!

Kelly W.: Dates stuffed with almond butter.

Sarah M.: Almond butter on plain rice cakes drizzled with a tiny bit of honey and cinnamon.

Sharon M.: Shakti almond power balls made from left over almond meal (after I make my almond milk) rolled in almond butter, figs, coconut, and roasted nuts and seeds! Yummy!

Jenifer C.: Roasted chickpeas (instead of popcorn at the movies!) and frozen grapes (yum).
