I like healthy snacks that are fast and easy to make! We had an open house this weekend and everyone love the healthy snacks I made. So, I thought I would share the recipes with you along with some of my other favorites. Just don’t eat too many at a time. These bites and snacks are made from healthy ingredients but don’t be afraid to be creative and put your favorite ingredients in the recipe. I hardly ever make a recipe exactly like the recipe says, (be careful because it doesn’t always come out like the photo when you do this).
Blueberry oatmeal balls
I double this recipe and freeze half.
1 cup dry oats
1/4 cup nut butter of your choice
1/2 cup dried blueberries
1/8 cup Chia seeds
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Mix all ingredients together and mix well. The mixture should be a little sticky. Put in the refrigerate for 30 min to 1 hour. Scoop about 1 tablespoon in your hand and roll into balls. Store in the refrigerator for about a week or freeze them for much longer.
Carrot Cake Bites
I used half of the nut butter and used coconut oil for the other half. You could also use flax seed or chia seeds for healthy fats.These carrot cake bites make a great snack on the go. You can find the recipe on the link above.
lemon turmeric Energy balls
What a healthy combination, lemon, and turmeric. You can add both of these ingredients to almost any recipe. This recipe is sweetened by using Medjool dates however you could also use honey or maple syrup. Make sure you wash the lemon well before making lemon zest.
Dark Chocolate Coconut Brownie Bites
These Dark Chocolate Coconut Brownie Bites are for you chocolate lovers out there! Remember these recipes are made with healthier ingredients but they still have calories so don’t eat too many.
I also made these crunch bars for our open house. I love hem because of the crunch and how can you go wrong with rice Krispies! I used organic rice Krispies, they are naturally gluten free. They were very easy to make!
Post your photos to our Facebook page, I would love to know what recipes you make and what you thought of them. You can also find my recipe for healthy no-bake cookies at https://elitephysiquesinc.com/2016/07/no-bake-gluten-free-cookies/.
