Healthy homemade snacks

When you’re busy, it’s tempting to grab a convenient snack to keep you going in between meals, and we all know it’s harder to make a healthier choice when you’re hungry or in a rush. But snacking doesn’t have to be an unhealthy habit; indeed, snack smart and you’re giving your body and mind the fuel it needs to stay energised and focussed, and you’ll also be less likely to over-indulge when it comes to meal times.

Check out these healthy homemade snack recipes that will not only help power you through your day, but also taste delicious. Some are sweet, some are savoury- and some will even satisfy your post-lunch chocolate cravings, but they’re all wholesome alternatives to packaged snacks that the whole family can enjoy, and are easy to make using your Kenwood products. Whip up a batch and you’ll always have a stockpile of healthier snacks to hand when that next energy slump hits.

Yes, brownies can be healthy (ish). Use your stand mixer to whip up these delicious chocolatey treats that the whole family can enjoy, almost guilt-free. 

Using antioxidant-packed beetroot gives these brownies a wonderfully squidgy texture and a slightly earthy flavour that really complements the hit of dark chocolate. The lower calorie agave syrup is used in place of sugar, and regular flour is swapped out for naturally gluten-free buckwheat flour, which is high in fibre and magnesium. It seems you really can have your cake and eat it…and the kids never need to know there are veggies in them!
