EASY HEALTHY SNACK IDEAS!



hey guys it's diesel Jane today I'm gonna be showing you some healthy and easy snack ideas these recipes are all completely dairy free gluten free and refined sugar free first I'm gonna be showing you some really basic easy healthy snack recipes and then I'm gonna be showing you some more DIY snack recipes so hopefully I can show you some new snack ideas that you'll love so I'm quickly gonna go over some really basic healthy snacks first and then after that we'll get into the more DIY a healthy snack recipes I know I've said it before but my go-to healthy snack is a piece of fruit and some raw nuts or some nut butter it's such an easy snack and with that you're getting all three of the food groups good carbs good protein and some healthy fats as well so these are some of the combinations that I love banana and raw almonds or banana slices with unsweetened peanut butter apple slices with almond butter raw cashew nuts and fresh blueberries clementines all oranges with some raw almonds on the side strawberries and pecan nuts or even strawberries and pistachio nuts is really good but any kind of nut or nut butter with any fruit is so good there are so many delicious combinations and it's so easy to just grab for a snack even when you're busy and this kind of snack will actually give you good sustained energy and a won't you know leave you with a sugar crush later avvocato toast is such a great healthy snack too especially if you're feeling for something a little bit more savory or you know salty I love either a piece of 100% whole rye bread or whole grain gluten-free bread toasted with about 1/3 of an avocado on top and a little sprinkle of sea salt and black pepper as filling and a decent-size snack and will give you great energy as well but I mean avocado toast is nothing new I mean like oK we've pretty much all tried it right but he has a slightly different take on your basic avocado toast so to start I've got the same thing again a slice of 100% rye or gluten-free toast with one third of an avocado then things are about to get a little bit crazy here I'm adding some fresh strawberry slices on top of that with some sea salt and black pepper and then finally a little splash of unsweetened balsamic vinegar drizzled on top about half a teaspoon or knee because you don't want to make the tourist girl you know soggy so just a little drizzle this combination is so insanely delicious and it's just a fun you take on your basic kind of avocado toast okay this is the easiest snack smoothie recipe with only three ingredients just the perfect little smoothie for an easy healthy snack so here I've got 1 sliced frozen banana I like to keep these in little Ziploc bags in the freezer you can also use 2 bananas instead of one if you want a bigger size smoothie or a thicker smoothie then one tablespoon of and sweetened almond butter for protein and a little delicious creaminess and finally about half a cup of food black coffee you can also use water if you don't like coffee that works too and just blend that up quickly and you've got a yummy banana almond coffee smoothie this is a great pre or post-workout snack and like I said before you can easily double the banana to make the quantity bigger or to make the smoothie thicker ok and then just really quickly he has another random idea for some cheeky snacking you can freeze any leftover smoothie in ice cube trays and then either re blend those smoothie ice cubes later for an even easier smoothie snack that's like already made you just have to re blend it oh you can just snack on those little frozen smoothie buds one by one when they're frozen this is awesome for if you literally just want one little bite of something sweet after meal it's so good so I like to do that with the smoothie sometimes okay now get ready for one of my absolute favorite healthy cheeky snacks ever we're making my wine serving healthy Nutella and it's so easy to make so the only ingredients are 1 tbsp of in Sweden nut butter about 1/2 TSP of cacao powder this is just rule cocoa powder and 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of 100% pure maple syrup and just mix that up it's so easy you can use any nut butter but I find that almond cashew macadamia or hazelnut butter work the best one of those I usually just use almond butter okay and then what I love to do is dip raw almonds into this healthy Nutella I know this is so random but it's so delicious I'm so obsessed with us and this combination is full of good protein good father and all sorts of goodness so it's just the best but that's not the only way that I like this cheeky healthy Nutella dipping strawberries into it is also so good this is like my healthy take on chocolate dipped strawberries this is amazing or how about some healthy Nutella toast I mean yes please so just make that same recipe again 1 tablespoon of nut butter coffee TSP of cacao powder and then 1/2 – 1 teaspoon of 100% pure maple syrup mix it all up and spread it out onto some gluten-free toast and if you want to get real fancy then you can just a sprinkle a little bit of cacao powder on top just to make it look pretty and there you go healthy Nutella toast which is pretty epic now here's a fun new take on your average peanut butter apple kind of snack you may have seen this before but it's so good you guys so I'm just gonna show you this really quickly I mean you can either slice up an apple and dip it into some peanut butter you know your regular peanut butter apple snack which is also really yummy oh you can make these fun little peanut butter apple sandwiches so all what I'm doing is I think up an apple in two slices I'm actually using two apples today but you can just use one then you're gonna want to call the apple slices if you have some kind of cool kitchen gadget that can do this for you that would probably be easier but I just cut out the little circle with my knife I feel like these are some questionable knife skills you're witnessing here be careful when cutting your apples guys always be safe with your knife and keep your fingers away from the knife so now I've got my cold apple slices and then I've also got some smooth and sweetened peanut butter and a little cinnamon – I'll take two apple slices at a time and I'm just spinning some of the peanut butter onto one of the sizes and then sprinkling a little bit of the cinnamon on top of the peanut butter this part is optional but it just adds that extra little something then put the other size on top and there you have a little peanut butter apple sandwich how cute and just keep repeating that until all of the apple slices have been used up and you will have yourself a whole lot of little really cute healthy Apple peanut butter sandwiches this is such a fun snack to make I love it this next snack recipe might be the easiest healthy cookie recipe ever it's these two ingredient banana or cookies that I'm going to show you now I prefer to add some more ingredients which I'll show you in just a minute but these are really the only two essential ingredients that you'll need so in a bowl I'm smashing up to wrap and honors with a fork the wrapper they are the better these cookies will taste and if your bananas are very small then you might need to three bananas and then I'm adding one cup of rolled oats to the banana and totally optional a teaspoon of cinnamon is also really good with this mixture okay so now you don't have to do this part it's totally optional you can just leave the cookie batter as it is but I'm going to show you some optional ingredients that I like to use to change this recipe up really easily because I want to show you a bunch of different ideas in this video I'm dividing this bed into three balls but you don't have to do that you can just do one kind of cookie if you want to to the first ball I'm adding a handful of chopped almonds to the second ball I'm adding a handful of roll cacao nibs you could also use dark chocolate chips if you like that and to the third ball I'm adding just a handful of raisins and I'll mix the ingredients in each bowl together I'm lining a baking tray with some parchment paper and then it was a greeting that really quickly with a tiny little bit of coconut oil you're gonna want to grease your tray so that the cookies don't stick and then I'm just spinning the batter from each of the balls onto the tray and roughly making a cookie shape I do about a heaped tablespoon amount for each cookie I would have to say that my favorite cookie flavor out of the three that I'm showing you is definitely the raisin one the raisins just add a little bit of extra sweetness naturally to the cookie which I love if you're just using the two ingredients to make the cookies or need the banana and the oats and they're not quite sweet enough for you just try adding a little bit of pure coconut sugar to the batter to make it you know more suited to your tastes but the banana by itself is sweet enough for me especially if they very rap and honors so if you do want to add a little bit of extra sweetener I would recommend using a little bit of coconut sugar and start with 1 tablespoon test the sweetness and then add another tablespoon if you need it then you can just pop them into an oven that you've preheated to 180 degrees Celsius or about 360 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 20 minutes I generally do 20 minutes these are definitely more soft chewy cookies not so much crunchy cookies they're more like a healthy snack cookie than a true cookie but I love them for that and after baking you can remove them from the tray and eat them I'm just dunking one into some almond milk yolk but I usually just grab two or three to take with me to work as a healthy snack and this amount of batter generally makes about 15 cookies for me but you can always make the cookies a little bit smaller which will give you even more cookies and then whatever you don't need right away you'll want to store that in an airtight container to keep them fresh okay the last healthy snack idea that I'm going to show you today is the most DIY of them all and I would have to say my favorite of them all well Todd with the healthy Nutella that I showed you and this is actually also a my sister's favorite healthy snack too out of all of the healthy snacks and treats that I've made for her in the past this has been her favorite these are my healthy peanut butter coconut and Earth bites okay so I'm just gonna dive right into the recipe to start what you'll need is two cups of dry rolled oats 1 cup of unsweetened desiccated coconut 1 cup of smooth unsweetened peanut butter 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract optional but it will make the flavor even more awesome 1/2 to 1 TSP of cinnamon 1/4 cup of 100% pure maple syrup that's about 4 tablespoons and 3 to 4 tablespoons of melted coconut oil I find that the easiest way to multi coconut oil is by placing the oil into a small bowl and then placing that small bowl into a slightly larger bowl filled with hot water just wait a minute or two for it to melt and just be careful not to burn your hands when you handle this as well so I've mixed all of that together now I'm just taking about a tablespoon amount at a time and pressing the mixture between my hands to form a rough ball shape they don't have to be perfect or anything just press them together tightly between your hands to form the shape this does get a little bit messy but it is so worth it they taste amazing and they will set really well in the fridge I'm placing those little bite-sized treats onto a tray lined with parchment paper so that they don't stick and I'll just keep doing that using up all of the mixture and toss fill up the tray but I just want to show you something else really quickly if you don't want to get your hands dirty here you know we'll take the time to roll and press each one then you can also just pour all of the batter onto a flat dish lined with parchment paper I'm just using a plate lined with parchment paper and just press all of the batter down onto the tray and then once you're done just place all of the bite-sized treats and also the dish fold with the mixture into the fridge to set for an hour or two you can also speed up this time by placing them into the freezer for about 30 minutes or so and then removing them from the freezer after that and then once they're set you can take them out of the fridge and they'll be ready to eat if you decided to pull the batter into a dish then you can now cut the –set batter into squares with enough and they'll be ready to serve on a dish or a tray if you're making them for guests or you can store them in the fridge for cheeky snacking these are my favorite little healthy snacks for a late afternoon snack for when I get home from work they've filled with good whole carbs good protein and some healthy fats too they're really nice and filling and they'll give you great energy I've actually had this recipe on my blog for years it's one of my favorites and whatever you don't eat straight away because they're really delicious you can keep in an airtight container in the fridge and they can last for two weeks stored like that if you can actually keep them that long so that is all of the healthy snack ideas that I'm going to show you today in this video what I'm also gonna do though is put all of these recipes over on my blog for you even the basic ones and over there I'll also give you a calorie breakdown and a suggested serving size for
