Essential Road Trip Snacks
Just imagine cruising down the highway with your windows down and singing along to your favorite throwback hit. It’s all about making memories with friends while taking in the beautiful, scenic routes. Now that sounds just about perfect to us, but we can’t have an epic road trip without packing some delicious snacks to munch on! While convenience stores and fast food may be appealing to the eye, it’s easy to fall down that rabbit hole of less than healthy on-the-go food. By packing some healthy snacks for your car ride, you’ll have your own back with packed snacks you can feel good about.
Here are some of our favorite snacks to pack for a road trip
1. Emmy’s Organics Coconut Cookies

3. No-Bake Energy Bites
These are simply irresistible! Make these delicious treats with simple ingredients that can be found in everyone’s pantry. They are perfect to enjoy for breakfast or to snack on between playlists! All you need is nut butter, rolled oats, flax seeds, vanilla extract, and honey. We love to add some dark chocolate chips for a sweetened taste!
4. Hummus and Carrot Sticks
Craving something savory? Dreaming of a little crunch? Not only is hummus delicious, but it is also packed with lots of vitamins and minerals. Hummus is rich with plant-based protein and will keep you full and happy. Cut up some carrot sticks and, together with hummus, prepare to be refueled for the drive ahead.
5. Coconut Chips
What’s not to love about coconuts? Coconut has a long list of health benefits, and it is definitely “Not Your Average Ingredient.” Coconut chips are a rich source of dietary fiber that will keep you full while satisfying your sweet tooth.
