When you are sitting with your mates enjoying a beverage or two, the urge to have little something to munch comes on, too. Bars and pubs will often come with a menu of salty snacks, that though delicious, are not exactly the healthiest thing you could be eating. Either that or you are left with the option of buying a bag of chips or peanuts to nibble on.

With these awesome OGP recipes, you can bring the bar home and serve your guests some really tasty bar food treats that will hit the spot. Sure, no one is asking for it to be 100% healthy, but these snacks are at least healthier! Grab a pint and dig in.
