Healthy Cookies, is there such a thing? Yes! I have a very sweet tooth and am often craving naughty treats. However, instead of indulging on calorific snacks, I try to swap to healthier alternatives to satisfy my cravings. Hense, coming up with healthy cookies.
Toasted pumpkin seeds are so crunchy and are my go-to snack at this time of year. They’re super quick and easy to make and very healthy too. With the leaves falling from the trees, the air is crisp and fresh, pumpkins are everywhere! Halloween has arrived already, so if you’re carving pumpkins, make sure you’re saving the seeds to make this delicious snack.
Apple and cinnamon bread – my new favourite thing! I am often making banana bread and fancied a change. With apples falling from the trees, I thought this would be a perfect combination. This apple and cinnamon bread is super quick and easy to throw together. It is moist and bursting with flavour. Perfect as an evening sweet bite or works well with your morning cuppa tea/coffee!
Homemade tortilla chips could not be easier! With only 3 ingredients, you’ll never opt for shop bought crisps again! All you need is tortilla wraps, (I used wholegrain seeded wraps) olive oil and seasoning. These crisps are crispy and strong enough to hold a good portion of the dip – perfection! These homemade tortilla chips are super quick to make and you experience the same taste and texture as your favorite shop brought crisps, at a fraction of the price and more importantly the calories.
It is so important to plan your meals in advance. This not only helps you to stay on track but this also stops you impulsive eating without thinking about what you’re putting in your body. Try our carrot coriander soup which is the perfect recipe for meal prepping as it can be placed into a container and stored in the fridge. It is only 96 calories per serving which is also a big bonus!
