Snacks

We are a society of snackers, there’s no doubt about it! Nowadays food is available 24/7 and our snacking obsession isn’t going anywhere. I am a massive fan of snacking too, but I am also very aware of these so-called ‘healthy’ grab-and-go bars which are packed full of so much rubbish. The same goes for free-from sweet snacks too and just any processed snacks on the supermarket shelves. They are full of added sugars, salt, saturated fat, palm oil and millions of additives to make them taste that little bit better. But at what cost to our health? Why can’t we just be happy with sliced apple and a good quality peanut butter!
I really do believe in healthy snacking. It should be satisfying and delicious as well as providing us with extra nutrients between our meals. Here are my favourite go-to snacks which I love to munch on throughout the day!

Cacao & Hazelnut Energy Balls

I’m absolutely mad about chocolate and hazelnuts!! Best food combo ever?! These are so soft and gooey with a rich chocolate flavour and deep nuttiness from the hazelnuts. Prepare to enter energy ball heaven guys!!!

Carrot Cake Energy Balls

Bite-sized raw carrot cake in the form of an energy ball! Sweet, satisfying and so simple to make. Grated carrots, dates, walnuts, raisins, oats and warming spices combine to taste exactly like the real thing!

Millionaires Shortbread

I am super proud of this recipe, it’s one of my personal faves! The ultimate indulgent sweet treat which doesn’t taste even remotely healthy. Buttery shortbread with sweet date caramel and a layer of rich chocolate on top! Pure heaven…

Banana, Peanut Butter & Chocolate Flapjack

Three of my favourite things combined into one delicious oaty bar. Gooey peanut butter, sticky banana and rich raw cacao. It’s the stuff only dreams are made of!

Crispy Coconut Bacon

A complete GAME-CHANGER and the best vegan alternative to bacon you will find. Smoky, salty flakes of crispy coconut which really do taste like the real thing!

Nut Butter Stuffed Dates

There’s nothing like sticky sweet caramel-like dates with creamy, gooey nut butter. It’s a match made in food heaven. The BEST healthy yet indulgent snack in the world!!! Correct me if I’m wrong?

Chermoula Roasted Chickpeas

A North African spice blend of cumin, coriander, paprika and parsley with a hint of chilli. Roasting chickpeas makes them so yummy, like savoury crunchy popcorn!

Vegan Cheese Straws

You can make these super simple cheesy sticks with 2 ingredients in less than 45 minutes. Perfect for sharing and dipping!
