An overseas family holiday had long felt like a pipe dream. With young kids,…
Healthy snacks that are easy and delicious can be hard to find. After many years of experimenting with recipes and snacks that are healthy I have my top go-to list for you!
Corn Thins + Toppings
Corn thins are so versatile and can have a range of toppings like:
- Avocado + Cherry Tomatoes
- Smoked Salmon and cream cheese
- Cucumber slices and tomato
- Vegemite and cheese
- Sliced Boiled egg
Those are just some examples of my faves. This is my go-to morning snack that keeps me going until lunch.
Raw treats are a great snack to take on the go! I have so many different recipes for this one (see below). Just be mindful with many protein balls that they do have a high fat content (healthy fats) so they are calorie dense. I limit myself to one per day which really hits that sweet spot! Simple add your fave protein powder to these to make them into protein balls.
Homemade Museli Bars
Homemade muesli bars are such a great snack idea especially being homemade at least you know what is in them. I make a batch up on a Sunday and then they are ready to grab on the go throughout the week. I also make a kids version of these by simply removing the protein powder and nuts (if going to daycare).

Protein Yogurt + Berries
This is actually my everyday breakfast. I have protein yogurt like YOPRO because it keeps me fuller for longer, but you can also use greek yogurt or another higher protein yogurt like Chobani.
Breadsticks + Tzatziki Dip
This snack is so easy and good if you want something super easy! I grab a pack of mini breadsticks and simply eat it with tzatkiki for an afternoon snack. I grab the “Always Fresh Mini Grissini Muiltipack” from Woolworths!
Protein Banana Bread
I am the biggest banana bread lover and you haven’t lived until you have tried Nutella smothered all over it! (but we are trying to be healthy here oops). I spent a long time perfecting this recipe, enjoy!

- Mash up bananas into a paste consistency
- In a bowl add coconut flour, protein powder, almond meal ,bi-carb soda, maple syrup, eggs, coconut sugar, Almond milk and mix together
- Mash or blend up the banana and mix in

- Top with sliced bananas and walnuts (if desired)
- Place in oven for 15-25 minutes (depending on the oven)

Wholemeal English Muffin with Healthy Toppings
This is actually my fave lunch right now paired with a side of boiled eggs! I love this because its so versatile! My favourite is topped with avocado, cherry tomatoes, small drizzle of olive oil and some salt.
Some other combinations are:
- Avocado + Cheery tomatoes
- Smoked Salmon + Cream Cheese
- Avocado + Poached Egg
- Ham + Cheese
- Avocado + Feta
Homemade Tortilla Chips with Guacmole & Salsa
Everyone loves a bit of Mexican! Your usual corn chips aren’t the healthiest option so why not make your own! Simply cut up a white flour tortilla into triangles and place in the oven for 8-12 minutes! Simply place the cut up tortilla on baking paper drizzle a bit of olive oil and salt then bake away!
Make your own guacamole with avocado diced tomatoes and you can even add some onion and taco seasoning!
I hope this blog has helped you find some healthy snacks you can implement into your day! Tag me snacking on these I would love to see!
