Sick of the same old snack options or are looking for healthier alternatives?

Check out some of my go-to healthy snacks below:

  • Oat bites and energy balls
  • Unsweetened coconut yogurt and fresh berries
  • Regular and beet hummus with crackers and veggies
  • Guacamole and crackers
  • Apple slices and nut butter
  • Smoothies
  • Chia pudding

One Bite Nut Butter Cups:

  • Dairy-free chocolate
  • Coconut oil mixed with dairy-free chocolate
  • You could even take powders or flavourings to mix into chocolate
  • ​maca powder
  • protein poweders

  • vanilla extra

Filling Options:

  • Peanut butter

  • Almonds
  • Peanuts
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Pecans
  • Walnuts
  • Really any nut or seed!

You will need:

  • Silicon mini muffin sheets then those work best! Click here to see an example.  If you don’t have those you can make larger ones with muffin tins and baking cups!
  • Saucepan

General Process:

  • Stir half of your base combination in a saucepan on low-medium heat and constantly stir until melted. Remove from heat.
  • Poor in 1/3 of the tin with your mixture
  • Put in the freezer for about ten minutes so that it gets a little hard
  • Melt the remainder of your base combination in a saucepan on low-medium heat and constantly stir until melted. Remove from heat.
  • Then add 1/3 of the filling of your choice
  • Add the rest of the base combination so the nut/seed butter is covered.
  • Add desired toppings
  • Freeze for a good hour or two and keep frozen or refrigerated after that

Peanut Butter Cups

  • 1/2 225g bag of dairy-free chocolate chips, melted
  • Roughly 4 tbsp natural peanut butter
  • Makes about 12 bite sized cups

Follow the general directions listed above adding peanut butter as the filling. Top with crushed walnuts, peanuts and/or pecans. 

Coconut Sunflower Cups

  • 1/2 225g bag of dairy-free chocolate chips, melted
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil melted with the chocolate chips
  • Roughly 4 tbsp natural sunflower seed butter

Follow the general directions listed above adding peanut butter as the filling. Top with coconut flakes, pumpkin seeds and/or hemp seeds

In good health,

Nic
