Healthy Homemade Snack Recipes and Ideas
I love homemade snacks.
Some say if you want to be healthy, you shouldn’t snack. But I disagree.
Just because I’ve batch-cooked delicious, healthy homemade meals all week doesn’t mean I can’t have something in between. Not when healthy snacks exist, and I want something deliciously salty or sweet or crunchy or smooth.
Here’s a short list of my favourite healthy homemade snacks when the mood strikes.
Everyone thinks their Mum’s banana bread recipe is ‘The Best.’ You’re all wrong. This is the best one.
Avocados are literally my favourite food. I could eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And with this guacamole recipe, they’re my healthy homemade snack too. I’m happy.
Homemade Vegetable Crisps
Salty, crunchy, and oven-baked with way less oil, these are much better than a Grab Bag. I’m dipping mine in the guac I just made for double the homemade snack.
Sweet Potato Fries
These are a Gousto recipe regular, and with good reason. They’re delicious, high fibre, baked and easy to riff on the seasonings (my personal favourite is Za’atar and smoked sea salt!) Perfect weekend healthy finger food.
Peanut Butter Energy Balls
There’s a lot of protein packed into these, which is why they’re my post gym snack of choice. It’s so easy to make loads of them!
For something sweet, the healthier flapjack recipe in this post is easy and delicious. They have no sugar, but they’re still sweet enough to keep my Dairy Milk cravings at bay.
If you’re a healthy snack lover like me, you need to let me know if you give these a go.
I’m always on the lookout for more healthy post-lunch snack options to enjoy al desko. Give me some epic ideas in the comments, so I can make my colleagues jealous.
