1. MOZZARELLA STICKS
You know how the classic mozzarella sticks recipe is not that healthy choice for two reasons:
First they’re usually covered in breadcrumbs, and second they’re fried.
Well, what about rolling them into a grounded seeds mixture instead of the breadcrumbs, and baking them in the oven on a baking sheet?
Well that’s a pretty healthier option.
I rolled them in eggs and then in grounded sunflower and flax seed mixture, spiced with oregano and sea salt.
And they tasted amazing, you have to try them.
Bake them for 15 minutes in a preheated oven, or until they turn golden.

2. CUCUMBER CIRCLES WITH HUMMUS
Cucumber is one of the healthiest snacks you can get, because it’s 90% water.
Peel it nicely, cut in thin bands, and serve it together with your favorite hummus recipe.
I got a Hummus Cookbook a few months ago and it helped me learn so many healthy recipes, how to combine it and simple ways to do it right.
If you’re not into cooking, here’s my favorite hummus I order from Amazon – it’s clean, organic and with with every ingredient on point
It’s a great combo, you’re going to love it!
3. SEED CRACKERS
I’ve tried many seed cracker recipes, but my all time favorite is the one with peanuts.
You’re going to need:
- 200 grams of baked unsalted peanuts
- 60 grams sunflower seeds
- 30 grams flax seeds
- 30 grams sesame seeds
- 2 egg whites
- 2-3 teaspoons Himalayan salt
- 20 ml water
Blend all the seeds, and then mix them together with the other ingredients.
Place them on a baking sheet, and bake them 10-15 minutes on a preheated 180 degrees oven.
You can add other spices by choice.
If you’re not into cooking, here’s my recommendation of clean and healthy seed crackers you can buy, they’re called Flacker – I love them!
Beef or turkey, jerky is a great snack.
It’s a good source of protein and it takes a bit of mouth-power to eat, so you’ll find yourself more satisfied.
As long as you double check for the hidden sugars i your next package, you’re all set.
Here’s my favorite Jerky beef.
5. SPICY ROASTED CHICKPEAS
Roasted chickpeas are such a great idea to satisfy your snacking cravings in any part of the day.
They’re salty, crunchy, spicy, and yet, healthy.
The only ingredients you’re going to need are:
- chickpeas (canned or home boiled)
- olive oil
So, preheat the oven to 230°C.
Toss the chickpeas and olive oil together in a large bowl until the chickpeas are lightly coated and then stir in the spices, salt, pepper, crushed red pepper and minced garlic, and mix the nicely.
Spread them onto a baking sheet, and pop in the oven for about 20 minutes, stirring the pan halfway through.
You’ll know they’re done when they shrink up a little bit, and get crunchy on the outside.

Or, if you’re not into cooking anything at all you can find them on the market, here’re my favorite chickpeas you can have on the go.
6. Roasted chestnuts
I love chestnuts!
Boiled or roasted – they’re the perfect snack to satisfy the cravings.
Preheat your oven to 180°C and place the chestnuts in a single layer on a baking tray.
The important thing here is you have to cut your slit into the chestnut before putting them on the pan.
Bake them for 15-25 minutes, it all depends on how large they are.
You don’t even have to sprinkle salt over them, because they are really delicious on their own.
Make sure to not eat more than a cup of them – they’re not that low in carbs, but they’re filled with fibers and pretty healthy.
