So basically majority of us make a “I’m gonna be healthy / get fit ” resolution at the beginning of each year , but begin to struggle a week in and resort back to old habits.
Well for those of you who are still going strong on that resolution or those who would like to get back on track , then these snacks are perfect to curb those cravings !
1. Kale chips
Now I know it’s not your typical lunch break potato chips but I mean these come in a close second!
Make them :
-Preheat your over to 140 C
- Cut the leaves off the stem and into smaller pieces.
- Lay them down on a tray ,careful not to overlap!
- Melt 1 tbsp of coconut oil and massage into the kale.
- Sprinkle with salt and put them inside your preheated oven.
Leave them in for 15 mins or until they start turning brown round the edges and they’re done !
2. Smoked Paprika Hummus
Delicious with a side of crackers or some pita chips !
Make them :
- Strain and rinse 1 can of chickpeas.
In a food processor add :
- The chickpeas
- 1tsp smoked paprika
- 1tsp salt
- 3 tblsp water
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- Squeeze of lemon juice
- 1 clove of finely minced garlic
Grind until smooth and you’re good to go !
(Once made store in an airtight container in the fridge and it can last up to a week)
3. Spiced Granola
Granola and yoghurt parfaits, granola cereal or basically a sprinkle of granola on top of anything makes a perfect snack !
Make it :
– preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
- 1/4 cup of honey
- 1/8 of a cup or 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
Melt these two together on a low heat and pour into the following mixture :
- 1 cup of oats
- 1/2 cup of almonds
- 1/2 cup of pecans
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
Bake in the oven for 15 mins and mix in 1/4 cup of coconut flakes and bake for 5 more minutes!
Store in an airtight container and it will last more than a week !
Honey can easily be replaced by maple syrup !
The add ons in the granola can be left up to preference!
Kale chips can be flavored with any spice !
I hope you enjoy these snacks as much as I do !
