With all of the delicious treats making their way into your office during the holidays, it’s important to have some healthier options on hand so you can avoid over indulging and stay feeling great. To help you out, we’ve made a list of five easy and healthy snacks that you can bring to work, school or anywhere you’re off to during this busy time of year.
Spicy Hemp Hummus
To make this Spicy Hemp Hummus you just need a few ingredients and a food processor and you’ll have a delicious and satisfying snack. We love spreading it on crackers and dipping veggies like broccoli, red peppers and cucumbers into it. Watch the video below for the full recipe and instructions!
Superseed Energy Balls
These Superseed Energy Balls are another snack that you can quickly blend up in a food processor. Even though they’re packed with Hemp Hearts, chia seeds, and flax seeds and sweetened with dates, they taste like a chocolaty dessert that’s too delicious to be guilt-free. You can make a big batch of these and keep them in the freezer for when you need a sweet treat or an afternoon snack.
Bananas with Hemp Hearts and Peanut Butter
If you need a really simple snack that’s super easy to make, then this is the perfect one for you. Just throw a banana, some peanut butter and a bag of Hemp Hearts in your lunch and you’ll have a tasty snack ready for whenever your hunger strikes! We like dipping the banana into the peanut butter and then sprinkling the Hemp Hearts on top… yum!
Hemp Hearts & Coconut Bars
You only need seven simple ingredients to make these tasty Hemp Hearts & Coconut Bars, and you probably already have most of them in your pantry or fridge! These bars freeze really well so you can make a double batch, put them in individual bags or containers and keep them in the freezer. That way you’ll always have an easy snack ready to go. Check out the video below to learn how to make them!
Maple Coffee Nut Granola
This granola makes an amazing afternoon snack and since it’s so versatile, you can have it a few days a week and not get sick of it. We like adding it to some Greek or coconut yogurt, pouring it over some almond milk or eating it on it’s own.
