7 Healthy Whole Grain Snacks

10th May 2017

You may think holding off on snacking between meals is good for you, but snacks can be included as part of a healthy, balanced diet. The key is to choose the right snack and not to consume too many. We digest whole grain foods more slowly, so whole grain snacks may help us feel fuller for longer. Here are some tasty wholegrain snack ideas.

On-the-go Energy Bars

These tasty, oaty energy bars are delicious, and perfect for eating on the go any time of day. Bake a big batch and store them in an airtight container so they’re ready for when you want one.

 

10-minute easy pizza

With this fantastic recipe you can make your own scrumptious whole grain pizza in just 10 minutes! More of a light meal than a snack – it’s perfect for mid-day, or a late night supper! If you’d prefer to have meat on your pizza, try adding a little chicken.

 

Quinoa and Kale Muffins

These tasty, savoury muffins from Jamie Oliver are great for popping into a lunchbox or enjoying at a picnic. You can make these in a big batch and freeze half, to enjoy at a later date.
