Nutritious Bites to Satisfy Your Snack Cravings

Healthy snacks can greatly satisfy hunger strikes and snack cravings in between main course meals. Snacks can be a vital part of balanced diet, if they are chosen thoughtfully. Let’s go over a variety of convenient, energy boosting, nutritious bites, that can keep you on track with your fitness goals.

Healthy Bites for Snack Cravings

Banana Oat Brownie 

Prepare and bake these healthy brownies and stock up junk on for the week. Take 1/2 cup of quick or rolled oats, 1 ripe banana, 1 egg. 1 tsp maple syrup or honey, 1/2 tsp baking powder, a pinch of salt, and some cooking spray. Blend the mixture, assemble in a dish, and bake at 180 degrees for 10-12 minutes. You may add 1 tsp of cocoa powder or crushed dark chocolate for the chocolate flavor. 

Greek Yoghurt with Walnuts and Berries 

A simple yet filling and healthy snack that even satisfies your sweet cravings. Take 2-3 scoops of Greek yogurt and add a handful of berries and walnuts on it. You may sprinkle chia seeds to add more flavor and nutrition. The snack would hardly take 2 minutes with all ready-to-use and nutritious ingredients. 

Banana Chocolate Chip Energy Balls 

A great way to use ripe bananas before you throw them away. Prepare these energy boosters for a good share amongst 4 servings. Take 100 grams of dry oats, 60 grams of almond butter, and 85 grams of honey, and mix them in a large bowl. Then mash 1 ripe banana and add it and 85 grams of chocolate chips to the same bowl. Mix them all and refrigerate the mixture for 60-90 minutes or unless it solidifies. Mold them into balls and enjoy these nutritious bites.  

Dark Chocolate and Nuts Bites 

Dark chocolate and nuts are two healthy snacking ingredients. You can blend them, by melting the chocolate, adding an egg, the nuts, and some oats to bake it and enjoy as a cake. 

Cucumber and Hummus

A very simple and healthy snack that will also replenish your gut. Cut open a cucumber into thin long slices and enjoy it with a readymade hummus blend. You can also make hummus yourself, by blending a handful of well-soaked chickpeas, some tahini, extra virgin olive oil, and salt. 

Fruit Salad

A simple blend of your favorite juice with a pinch of seasoning and some no-sugar orange juice. Chop a couple of refreshing fruits ~ my choice is apples, bananas, pineapple, grapes, pomegranate, and orange. Add a pinch of salt, and pepper and some orange or mango juice on it. Enjoy the zero-portion healthy and refreshing snack. 

Overnight Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

Soft some cocoa powder, a pinch of salt, some cinnamon powder, and vanilla to it. Whisk it adding some milk, and add a handful of chia seeds to it. Chill the mixture overnight, then serve it with some coconut whip and berries. 

3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Granola Bars

Mix 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 1/2 cup peanut butter, and 1 cup of packed dates. You can soak the dates in warm water for a few minutes and drain them to make them moist. Now blend the dates in a food processor, gradually add peanut butter and oats, and mix them all nicely. Press them until flat and cut them into equal-sized bars.
