Easy Healthy Snacks

One of the hardest things about changing to a non-processed diet, was trying to kill my sweet tooth. Not grabbing a piece of chocolate for dessert was tough at first, but reaching for a clementine became a quick and easy solution to that. Another tough thing that I’ve always done is snack. I couldn’t just snack on anything and logged onto the internet to find clean eating snack ideas. Here I stumbled upon a few, mixed them up, tweaked them a bit and now I think they’re ready for you! 
If you’re looking for a new snack fix while at work or out and about, I’ve got a few ideas for you!
1. Granola
  I love Trail Mix, last semester I went through 3 bags in 2 weeks. It was insane and made me feel really bad. Now that I’m clean eating, I can just make a batch at home when I’m there for the weekend. It’s just oats, cinnamon, your choice of nuts (peanuts, almonds, pecans, walnuts). and either raisins or craisins if you’d like! 
( always use sallys baking blog. for ideas and how to’s.) Just search granola and you’ll come across plenty of quick recipes!

2. Power Balls
  These are a quick and easy on the go snack. You don’t really need a recipe, just some oats, your favorite nut butter, some chia seeds (or hemp seeds), and dried fruit if you’d like! Depending on how much you would like to make, change up the amount of oats (i usually go for 1 cup, and 2/8 of a cup of chia seeds and 1/2 cup of cashew or almond butter). There isn’t any baking involved, simply roll these into balls and store in your fridge for a simple pick me up! 
Easy Vegan
3. Freezer Bars
      While my body was adjusting to life without refined sugar, I spent some time on the internet (shocking I know) looking for granola bars. While many of them had protein powder, I did find some that were easy and quick to make. As long as you have a freezer, you should be good to go! I found this recipe on this blog. With just 2 cups oats, 1/2 cup nut butter, 1/4 cup coconut oil, 1/4 cup maple syrup, honey or agave and 1/4 cup chia seeds, these bars are full of natural sweetness and my mom loves them! I had to make them for her before I left for university again!

If you’re struggling to find easy recipes that go with your new lifestyle, I hope you use some of these! Both the powerballs and the bars are vegan recipes as well as clean eating, you can always change the recipes to fit your needs for your diet as well. 
Have you discovered any new treats or entrees? I would love to hear about them in the comments! 
Thanks for reading, as always!
