Just when you’re on a train or car, you get really hungry. You can stop at a gas station or newsagent, but it’s usually much cheaper and healthier to bring your own snacks. No inspiration? We give it to you! These 16 snacks are easy to make and eat on the go.
1. Almonds with chocolate and sea salt
Fancy chocolate? For this snack, melt dark chocolate au-bain marie in a pan. Once the chocolate has melted, fold in the almonds. Sprinkle some salt over it and let the almonds harden on a plate.
2. Chocolate date balls
There are endless combinations you can think of with dates and you don’t need more than a food processor. Soak 100 grams of dates in a bowl of boiling water and grind them into a puree in a food processor. Add 75 grams of mixed nuts, a tablespoon of coconut oil, 25 grams of dark chocolate and a tablespoon of cocoa. Grind it into a coarse mixture and then knead it into a ball. Make 15 small balls of this and let it stiffen in the fridge. Roll the balls in grated coconut if desired.
3. A big slice of banana bread
Banana bread is the perfect destination for ripe bananas. Earlier we shared a delicious recipe without added sugars.
4. Apple with peanut butter
Cut the apples into wedges and dip them in a small container with peanut butter, almond paste or another nut butter.
5. Carrots with hummus
The perfect combination: carrots with hummus. Make your own hummus or just buy it from the supermarket. Also tasty: hummus from pumpkin, beets or with coriander.
6. Roasted Chickpeas
Something different than nuts: roasted chickpeas! Preheat the oven to 200 degrees, drain the chickpeas (200 grams), add a tablespoon of olive oil, a teaspoon of garlic powder, a teaspoon of paprika and a pinch of sea salt. Divide the chickpeas on a plate and roast them for 15 minutes until crisp. Toss in between. You can of course vary with the herbs.
7. Peanut butter banana chocolate
This healthy snack can almost be made for a cake. Cut a banana into five equal pieces. Cut these pieces in half and spread with peanut butter or another nut butter. Put the halves together and melt dark chocolate in a pan. Dip half of the ‘banana tart’ into the chocolate and put it in the fridge for a while.
8. Oatmeal Cookies
Peel two ripe bananas and cut them into pieces. Mash the bananas with a fork. Add 120 grams of oatmeal, fifty grams of unsalted and chopped nuts and a teaspoon of cinnamon. Knead this into a dough. Twenty minutes in an oven at 180 degrees and the cookies are ready.
9. Chili Popcorn
Do you like popcorn? Then make a spicy version with chili powder and black pepper. Also delicious: popcorn with dark chocolate. Here we give you even more inspiration.
10. Healthy Nut Mix
You can buy it ready-made in the supermarket: bags with mixed nuts. But you might as well make it yourself. Think of a mix of raisins, walnuts and almonds.
11. A hard boiled egg
With a little salt and pepper, filled with guacamole (more difficult to take with you!) or in combination with a slice of chicken breast.
A regular side dish when you eat sushi: soybeans. Just cook and it’s ready. If you can’t find soybeans in the supermarket, broad beans with sea salt are a good alternative.
13. Blueberries with yogurt
Mix Greek yogurt with a little honey. Stir the blueberries into the mixture and scoop out with a fork. Place the blueberries on a plate in the freezer for at least an hour.
14. Cucumber sandwich
Two slices of cucumber make a healthy mini sandwich. Add a little cottage cheese, a slice of chicken breast or some cheese.
15. Apple Pie Filling
Cut an apple into wedges, mix it with raisins and cinnamon. If you add a drop of lemon juice to the apple, it will not turn brown. Also nice to bake the apple pieces briefly, if you don’t eat it on the way.
16. A rice cake with…
Avocado, nut butter, hummus a homemade vegetable spread. Also a nice combination: peanut butter and banana. It is a bit more difficult to eat in the car.
