Healthy Snack Ideas

Hello everybody, Recently I’ve been trying to be healthier. I am so bad when it comes to snacks with my weakness being salt and sugar. I decided to make my own healthy snacks and alternatives to processed snacks.

It hits three o’clock and I need a snack or a sugar fix depending on my mood. It’s so easy to go for a cookie, some chocolate or crisps but I’ve come up with some healthy alternatives. These will fill you up without feeling guilty or unhealthy.

Todays blog post will include two healthy snacks, one salty and one sweet. They are both super easy and quick to make. I will also be including a link to my Pinterest board full of healthy meals, snacks and drinks!

First up, I’ll be telling you how to make these salty and crunchy chickpea snacks. I love this recipe, these crunchy chickpeas are so delicious and a healthy snack to fill you up. They consist of only three ingredients too.

So all you will need is;

  • On tin of chickpeas
  • Two tablespoons of olive oil
  • Some garlic salt or salt and powdered garlic

Step one is to pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees and line a tray with some baking paper

Next, make sure that you wash your chick peas and then mat them dry with some kitchen roll.

The third step is to add a tablespoon of oil and a good pinch of salt to a plastic tub with a lid. Pour your chickpeas into the tub and give them a good shake in the tub.

The third and final step is to put the chickpeas in the oven and leave them for half an hour.

Once they have cooked and they are nice and cripsy and room temperature, remove them and pat them dry with some kitchen roll. This just helps to get rid of excess oil.


The next recipe is sweet and chewy! The perfect three o’clock snack bar.

You will need…

The first thing you want to do is remove any stones from your dates. Cut them in half and pull out the pips.

Next you want to mix your raisins (1 cup), oats (2 cups rolled oats), dates (1 cup) and honey (Half a cup) together. They will eventually start to clump together which is when you know it’s done and mixed well.

Line your tray with baking paper!

Add your mix to the baking tray squishing it in and pressing it down

Put your mix into the oven for half an hour and then let it cool to room temperature. I then put it in the fridge for two hours. The oven crisps it up and fridge sets. Cut it up into slices and enjoy!
