Healthy Homemade Snack Recipes & Ideas
If lockdown’s taught me anything, it’s that grazing has the power to empower. When that 3pm slump kicks in, a decent snack can make the difference between workplace snooze-fests and a job well done. ‘Cuz frankly, no amount of H20, ‘spicy’ seaweed or raw veg will inspire genius.
So set aside those sad celery sticks and jump aboard my healthy(ish) train to Snack Town, helping you power up when you get peckish.
If you missed this craze in Lockdown 1, now’s your time to shine.
Perfect with crackers, wholemeal toast or baked mushrooms (they’re worth the extra mile) this guac is everything you’ll avo want in a snack.
Homemade Vegetable Crisps
These salty, crunchy, oven-baked crisps taste way better than a Grab Bag. I’m dipping mine in guac for double-the-homemade-snack.
Sweet Potato Fries
These are a regular on the Gousto menu, and with good reason. They’re delicious, high in fibre and it’s easy to riff on the seasonings. Best part? You only need four ingredients (and one of those is salt).
Peanut Butter Energy Balls
There’s a lot of protein packed into these, which is why they’re my post-workout snack of choice. Batch-cook, store, freeze or scoff — it’s your call.
These sugar-free flapjacks hit that sweet spot, without the crash afterward. Permission to drool, granted.
And hey, if you think your snacks are better than mine, I challenge you to prove it. Share your favourite recipes below, and I promise to personally test them all.
