Having snacks in my bag whilst on the go is so handy and I never usually leave the house without any in my bag especially if I am out for the day and/or have a long journey ahead of me. I also get hungry quite quickly and usually need something to keep me going until I can have a meal, so snacks are one of my essentials that I carry around with me. Some snacks are also super handy if you need some fuel pre or post workout.
I could list so many snacks that I love but here I list my top 5 healthy snacks that I love and buy time and time again. I hope you find it helpful by giving you some ideas if you are looking for some healthy snacks to buy. I have included links in each snack title.
Think vanilla fudge – YES this is actually what this tastes like! I absolutely adore this Pulsin bar. Vanilla is my ultimate favourite flavour in the Pulsin range. It is so creamy and the chunky chocolate chips make it all that much better. It contains 13g of plant based protein which is a blend of pea and rice protein which makes it a great boost for any time of day. It is vegan and free from dairy, soya and gluten. It is a good size 50g bar which makes it a satisfying snack. This is one of my go to snacks for pre/post workout or any time of day! They are available in many other flavours too including the mint choc chip which is also so good!
Exclusive to Planet Organic, so I tend to stock up whenever I visit Planet Organic as I do not get to go there often. This bar is so deliciously sweet, soft and a great protein hit, ideal for pre or post workout. You can pleasingly taste the almond and chocolate chip flavours which definately satisfies that sweet tooth. With 100% organic ingredients, it is vegan, gluten free, paleo, soy free and contains 10g plant protein from the activated chia, brown rice and pea protein.
These Deliciously Ella energy balls come in many gorgeous flavours, but the oat and coconut is top of my list in the range. Each packet contains one individually wrapped ball. It is a good size 40g ball, with only 6 simple natural ingredients – dates, oats, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, desiccated coconut and date syrup. All of these ingredients is all that is needed to create this wonderful tasty ball. Coated in desiccated coconut, so if you are a coconut lover you will love this! It’s compact size is really handy to have in your handbag, gym bag and slots well into little pockets. It is vegan, free from gluten, dairy and refined sugar.
This handcrafted cookie is so soft and chewy and the large sized chocolate chips make all the difference! Made with cashew, oat and natural ingredients and is so subtly flavoursome. If I ever fancy a cookie or biscuit or an after meal sweet then these are definately the ones I reach for! The Kookie Kat range is vegan and gluten free and is available in many other fantastic flavours which are all amazing.
You could imagine my excitement when I won a whole box of these cookies in the flavour of my choice through Instagram!😊
Nut lovers! This is the one! Satisfyingly nutty, tasty and filling – these are the words that come to mind when I think of Ollybars. This raw, vegan, natural energy bar is available in 3 different flavours, although the peanut choc chip is my absolute favourite flavour! A blend of seeds, nuts and fruit, this is the ultimate energy bar. This is great as a breakfast bar or for any time of the day when feeling a bit peckish or need an energy boost. Full of superfood ingredients and is free from additives, gluten, dairy, soya, GMO, whey, yeast palm oil and emulsifier.
