5 healthy homemade go to snack ideas for busy people by Nutritionist and GoodnessMe Box Health Editor Melissa Fine.
With our on-the-go schedules, there’s not always time to make or bake a healthy snack. If grabbing something not-so-healthy from the local café or convenience store is becoming a bit too regular a habit, here are five snack recipes that you can whip up in 1-10 minutes – No oven required.
Gluten free, fructose free and vegan, these happen to be delicious too.
Makes 9 biscuits.
Add all the ingredients to a blender, cover and blend for about 1 minute, or until the ingredients form a nicely combined, smooth mixture. You may need to stop the blender a couple of times to scrape the mixture down from the sides.
Scoop the mixture out the blender and roll into 9 balls, placing them on a small, lined baking tray or dish.
Gently press the top of each biscuit with a fork to make them look pretty.
Cover the tray with cling wrap and place in the fridge for at least an hour to firm. Or, if you can’t wait that long, these will firm up faster in the freezer. Enjoy!
A regular on my snack-rotation; You’ll want to make this again and again.
Add all ingredients except the milk to a small, single-serve bowl or teacup, stirring until smooth and combined. Add a splash or two of milk and stir again.
Especially delicious with almond butter and a teeny sprinkle of sea salt…This gives you some protein, fibre and healthy fats, which all will help keep you full until lunch or dinner. Satisfies a sweet tooth too.
My go-to savoury snack: Simply add 2-3 tsp of light (‘shiro’) miso paste to a mug of just-boiled water. Some other nice add-ins: Some firm tofu for some protein and to bulk it up, ½ a small zucchini or red capsicum, chopped (the boiled water will lightly cook these through).
