If you live a busy lifestyle, like us at the Bare Blends office, then a pre-made healthy snack is the best way to get a nutritious energy boost while you’re on the go.
If your snack has protein in it, that’s even better, as this will help to get rid of your hunger cravings that may happen later on. These recipes don’t contain any refined sugar, just organic superfoods and deliciously satiating ingredients that are sure to put a smile on your face throughout the day.
Here’s 7 of our go-to healthy snacks to get you through the working week.
1. Raw Cacao Peanut Butter Slice
Cacao and peanut butter is a winning combination, and this decadent-but-healthy slice recipe is gluten free and grain free, with no baking involved. With the added antioxidants from raw cacao, and energy boost from the maca, this slice is the perfect post-workout snack or pick-me-up treat.
2. Choc Protein Bites
These Choc Protein Bites are like healthy chocolate biscuits to accompany your cup of tea, or afternoon coffee. The cacao and protein will help to give your mental capacity a boost if you’re lacking energy. The coconut and nuts provide extra nutrients from the good fats, so take them to work to get you through the 3pm slump!
3. Vanilla Pistachio Brittle
Brittles are traditionally very sweet and full of sugar, but this pistachio brittle is only fully of nutritious goodness, and that addictive pistachio nutty flavour! The snack speaks for itself - just try and stop yourself from eating it!
4. Matcha, Lime and Coconut Popsicles
This ice-cream is made with avocados, coconut yogurt, lime, and matcha! We know that ice-cream is technically a dessert, but for the warmer weather, it’s the perfect snack! If you have kids - this will be their new favourite after-school treat!
5. Clean Protein Bars
These are protein bars without the added ‘natural’ flavours or sweeteners. They’re perfect to boost your energy before or after a workout, they even make a convenient breakfast on the go when you short for time in the mornings!
