5 Healthy Office Snack Ideas

5+HEALTHY+OFFICE+SNACK+IDEAS.jpg

Instead of walking to the vending machine – or reaching for the office donuts – when the 3pm slump strikes, be prepared with this round-up of delicious, healthy snacks from around the web. Featuring high-protein, fibre-packed bliss balls and trail mixes, these recipes will keep you going all the way to dinner – and feel like a treat when you want one most!

Cook these guys up on the weekend and stash them in your office for when you need a boost. Just be warned – your co-workers will want a bite too!

 

Choc Protein Bites

Instead of reaching for a chocolate bar, get your fix with these hugely satisfying protein bites from I Quit Sugar. They use a high-quality protein powder with coconut and nuts for a fudgy, chocolatey afternoon treat without the major afternoon crash. Perfect with a cup of tea and a long afternoon of emails.

 

Quinoa-Chia Freezer Bars

A handy, delicious snack to have stocked in the freezer, these puffed quinoa bars melt in your mouth like the chocolate crackles you had at birthdays parties as a kid (ah, the nostalgia). They’re also gluten-free and vegan to boot, so watch out for wandering hands in the office freezer!

 

Sweet Potato Muffins

You have to trust Jamie Oliver – he seems like such a nice bloke! These muffins are a great grab and go snack (or breakfast, if you’re really short for time). Loaded with veggies and good fats, they’ll keep you full for hours.

 

Coconut, Chia and Apricot Bliss Balls

A surprising find from the Queen of Desserts, Donna Hay, these bliss balls are chewy and sweet and everything you crave when you realise lunch wasn’t enough. Loaded with LSA (linseed, sunflower seeds and almonds), they’re a great source of both fibre and protein. Getting to inbox zero will feel a cinch with these bad boys by your side!

 

Protein-Packed Trail Mix with Chickpeas

Packaged trail mix is often nothing more than sugar-coated nuts, but this version with roasted chickpeas is way more healthy. Chickpeas are high in both protein and fibre, and are delicious when tossed through coconut oil, cinnamon and a pinch of cayenne.

Of course, there’s an even easier way to avoid those afternoon sugar fixes. With a Snackwize subscription, expect a bounty of protein balls, kale chips, trail mixes, nuts, beef jerky and more delivered to the door each month (or however frequently suits you).
