Enjoy a meal delivery with these festive finger foods and savory snacks, all just as tasty as the not-so-healthy traditional versions. These healthy snacks have fewer than 200 calories and 6 grams of fat per serving. We also considered sodium and gave bonus points for protein and fiber.

Ingredients

6 - ounces reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel)
1/4 - cup crumbled reduced-fat blue cheese (1 ounce)
12 - dried apricots, finely chopped
5 - tablespoons finely chopped toasted walnuts
1/4 - teaspoon salt
1/2 - teaspoon finely snipped fresh rosemary or 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, finely crushed


Directions
In a small bowl combine cream cheese and blue cheese. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Stir in apricots, 3 tablespoons of the walnuts, and salt. Shape mixture into 16 balls. In a small bowl mix 2 tablespoons of the walnuts and the rosemary. Roll balls to lightly cover with nut mixture.
