High-Calorie Snacks for Smarter Weight Gain

Avocado Toast – It’s popular for a reason! Avocado’s creamy texture pairs well with crispy, crunchy whole wheat bread. Spread half an avocado over two slices of toasted whole wheat bread, then season with salt and pepper. You’ll consume roughly 300 calories as well as a lot of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats.

Full-Fat Yogurt With Fresh Berries and Honey – Full-fat Greek yoghurt contains slightly more calories than regular yoghurt, so if you want to consume extra calories, pick Greek. One cup of whole milk Greek yoghurt contains approximately 238 calories compared to one cup of whole milk normal yoghurt, which has 149 calories.

Stir a half-cup of fresh blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries into a 6-ounce container of whole milk Greek yoghurt for a delicious afternoon snack or healthy dessert. To sweeten the bargain, drizzle with honey. Chopped nuts can be added for extra healthy fat, vitamin E, and magnesium.

Ingredient Protein Balls – These protein balls have it all, despite having just three ingredients: protein, fat, and carbohydrates. Not only that, but they’re a piece of cake to create!
1 ½ cup old-fashioned oats, 3 tablespoons honey, and 2/3 cup creamy peanut butter in a food processor Form into balls and you’re ready for some high-calorie, healthy eating. These bits also freeze nicely, so make extra to keep in the freezer.

Pita Nachos – In terms of health, not all nachos are made equal—but a Mediterranean-style version can be beneficial. Begin with whole wheat pita chips, then layer on hummus, chopped tomatoes, cucumber, red onions, and crumbled feta cheese. It’s a fun twist on a classic that you may even serve as a party snack.

DIY Trail Mix – Is there a more convenient snack than trail mix? Tossing together a mixture of your favourite nuts, dried fruits, seeds, and even chocolate is as simple as tossing items in a mixing basin and stirring. (And you don’t have to be trekking to enjoy this snack.)

Include extra calories by adding banana chips, chocolate candies, and/or macadamia nuts, which are all heavy in fat. For easy grab-and-go simplicity, portion trail mix into zip-top baggies.

Blueberry Tofu Smoothie – We understand that “smoothie” and “tofu” don’t appear to go together. The benefit of incorporating silken tofu into a fruit smoothie is that it mixes easily, giving protein, calories, and bulk without drastically altering the taste.

Peanut Butter on Graham Crackers – It may appear easy, but sometimes the simplest solution is the best! Spread two tablespoons of creamy or crunchy peanut butter on two graham crackers for a snack high in calories and fat (19 grams). It will be much better if you can find (or prepare) whole wheat graham crackers.

Crunchy Roasted Chickpea Wrap – Beans and legumes are a no-brainer for lunch or supper, but these high-fibre, healthful foods can be difficult to squeeze in between meals. (After all, there aren’t many bean-based treats on grocery store shelves.) Crunchy roasted chickpeas are about to alter that!

Drain the chickpeas and put them out on a baking sheet. Drizzle generously with olive oil and your chosen seasonings, then roast for about 20 minutes at 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Wrap the roasted chickpeas on lavash bread with crumbled full-fat feta cheese.

Egg Salad Bagel – You may be acquainted with egg salad as a meal in and of itself, but it may also serve as a major weight-gain snack. Combine two hard-boiled eggs with a tablespoon of mayonnaise, salt, pepper, and, if preferred, a sprinkle of dried dill. Make a sandwich out of a sliced bagel that has been cut into quarters.

Quinoa Dark Chocolate Bark – A weight gain diet isn’t always about sweets, although it may surely contain them! Try quinoa dark chocolate bark for a guilt-free sweet treat. Toast a half cup of uncooked quinoa in a pot for a few minutes before melting 8 ounces of dark chocolate. Mix everything together, then spread it out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze until solid, then break into pieces.

If you use high-quality dark chocolate, these chocolaty wedges are not only tasty but also packed in antioxidants. In addition, both quinoa and chocolate contain fibre.
