Hands up if you love a good snack! I certainly do, but unfortunately snacks can be rather calorie dense and sabotage your diet if you aren’t careful. Not to say that you should be on a diet or that everyone is, but simply put snacks should be small and filling and enough to tide you over to your next meal. Some people like to snack and others don’t. That’s okay too. But if you’re looking for some healthy and delicious snack ideas then I have you covered. Keep on reading to see if you find a favourite healthy snack.
Hummus & Crudité
Quite simply put this is one of my favourite snacks…. ever! I love hummus. Mainly because it can be put on basically everything, and it’s absolutely delicious! It’s actually really simple to make and as it uses chickpeas it is full of protein. Add some crudité in the form of carrots, celery and cucumbers. This is a low calorie snack that will supply you with nutrients and keep you full until your next meal. Here is a great hummus recipe. If you’re trying to cut out oil from your diet then just omit it from the recipe. If it’s too thick add a bit of lemon juice or water.

Sweet Potato Fries
I absolutely love sweet potato fries and avocado as well, so if I can eat them together as a snack then I’m super happy. The sweet potato fries are crisp on the outside and soft and delicious on the inside. I love how versatile sweet potatoes are. Sweet potato toast, burgers, fries, mash you name it. These fries together with the avocado dip are simply irresistible whilst remaining healthy and filling. Heres how to make this snack.

Chocolate Dipped Almond Butter Bananas
Banana, chocolate and almond butter were made for one another. Love these little bite size snacks. Simply slice the bananas and place some almond butter on one slice and top with another slice of banana. Line a baking tray with wax paper and then place the banana sandwiches on the wax paper and pop it in the freezer. Freeze for about an hour. In the mean time you can melt the chocolate. This is best done using a double boiler. Once the banana is frozen dip it in the chocolate and then place back on the wax paper and pop it back in the freezer for about another hour. Can be stored in an air-tight container for up to 2 weeks in the freezer.
