Do you sometimes get bored of the usual snacks and would love to have something a little different, that tastes great and are healthy for you?
Well here are 5 gluten free snack ideas that are just that …healthy, delicious, gluten free…. and a little different!
Gluten free snack ideas…
1. Curried Almonds
A quick and easy snack that is full of protein…and are great snacked on warm from the pan or cooled and stored in little plastic bags.
Simply add some olive oil to the base of a saucepan.
Add in 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of turmeric, a good dash of black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon of cumin, 1/4 teaspoon of coriander and mix.
Then add in 2 cups of almonds and stir and cook for 5 mins or so or until the spices smell delicious. Remove from the heat and let them cool… or sneak a few while they are still warm…but I am sure you won’t stop at a ‘few’ 🙂
2. Dark chocolate and Goji Berries
Dark chocolate is full of antioxidants and can reduce your appetite and Goji Berries help to promote healthy skin and boost the immune system.
Simply melt dark chocolate and spoon onto trays lined with baking paper and sprinkle with Goji Berries. Allow them to cool or place them in the freezer for a very delicious snack, that is doing you the world of good!
3. Crustless Apple Pie
A healthy combination of apples, cinnamon, coconut oil and yoghurt. This is simple, so healthy and tastes great!
Simply cut up an apple and add to a small bowl, then sprinkle with cinnamon, nutmeg and top with a little bit of coconut oil. Microwave for 2-3 minutes. Then top with greek yoghurt and indulge!!
4. Chocolate Chip Raspberries
Raspberries are full of antioxidants, vitamin C and have anti-inflammatory properties and combined with a little dark chocolate chip….well just delicious and so quick!
Simply poke a little dark chocolate chip inside the raspberries…and enjoy! Nothing fancy here but oh! so good…..you can thank me for this one later!! 😉
5. One Ingredient Ice-cream
The perfect compromise of having ice-cream and wanting to be healthy too….all with just one ingredient – banana!
Simply peel an banana, cut into small pieces, freeze for 3 hours in a plastic bag and then blend in a food processor.
(Tip – scrape down the side of the food processor if they get a little stuck on the side). The trick to this is to make sure the bananas are frozen first and when in the food processor…the magic happens and delicious ice-cream is made!
You can get a little creative and add in other flavours such as peanut paste and a little honey or Nutella… but it wouldn’t be One Ingredient Ice-cream then…
….but if we are adding in extras… why not add dark choc chips!! (…I think this makes it extra healthy now 😉 )
