By now, all you babes know that healthy snacking doesn’t have to be time consuming (examples here, here and here). But, just for when you have a spare half an hour and feel like getting a bit domestic, we’ve gathered up some super simple, protein packed snack recipes that will hit the spot in between your protein ball shipments (don’t worry babes, we know you’d NEVER cheat on us).
Eggy Breakfast Muffins
½ red onion diced
1 cup roughly chopped spinach
1 tomato diced
- In a frying pan, cook the red onion until translucent.
- In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, then add in all vegetables.
- Grease a non-stick muffin tin, and pour in egg mixture.
- Bake on 180 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until muffins are firm.
2 cups almond milk (or milk of your choice)
½ cup chia seeds
¼ cup maple syrup (or sweetener of your choice)
½ tsp. cinnamon powder
- Blend together all ingredients minus the chia seeds, then whisk the chia seeds though.
- Pour the mixture into snack-sized portions (we love mason jars, but you can always use small cups or even a muffin tray) and leave to chill overnight.
- For a fruity version, blend through frozen raspberries, blueberries, or even mango before adding the chia seeds.
Super Seedy Trail Mix
½ cup walnuts
½ cup almonds
¼ cup pumpkin seeds
¼ cup sunflower seeds
½ tsp paprkia
1 tsp olive oil
- On a low heat, add oil to a frying pan and lightly toast the pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and paprika until golden brown.
- Once toasted, leave to cool then mix through with the walnuts and almonds for a tasty and simple trail mix recipe!
If you're STILL feeling too time poor and haven't had the chance to grab one of our balls, then there's always the option of a trusty boiled egg, handful of almonds, or apple with peanut butter for your afternoon snack.
P.S. Looking for a protein packed, on the go brekkie? Look no further than the chia pud and egg muffins, just up your portion size accordingly!
