One thing Freya and I are very bad at is snacking. If we are going to the boat for a few hours we’ll always pop into a shop and come out with cookies, crisps and other bad things that we really shouldn’t be eating. More often than not we buy cheese and bread – even worse. I blame the supermarkets – they never have anything wholesome and healthy for you to grab. In fairness if we were to plan a bit better we’d always have something to take with us – but we never do.
Anyway – in light of me struggling to keep any food down at the moment – I thought I’d knock up some healthy bite sized snacks.
Honestly Healthy for Life has a number of snacks, the first one I’ve chosen is the Raw Hemp Granola Bars.
These are really easy to make. There’s no cooking (obviously – it says raw) – but you will need a blender to blitz everything together.
These bars contain coconut oil, rolled oats, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds and dates. Mine contained some figs too because I’d run out of dates and made the volume up with something similar. Annoyingly I needed the figs for another dish but that will now have to wait !
These taste amazing – a squidgier version of the Granola that I made earlier in the week. I’ll certainly be knocking up batches of these each week instead of being naughty with the Waitrose Chocolate Chip Cookies. That said – the recipe says it makes 12 – I’ve probably made 30. And they only keep for a week – so just bear in mind you’ll be eating a lot of them – or generously giving them away.
They might even do for our weekly team meetings at work – cake isn’t good for you guys !
