What Is Healthy Sweet Snacks?
I consider healthy sweet snacks to be recipes where all the ingredients are full of nutrition. Meaning there’s no junk or empty calories. All of my healthy sweet snacks have a portion or two of fruit/veg. All of these recipes are perfect when you’re short of time and is also a healthy snack when you want something sweet.
Are Nuts Good For You?
Yes. nuts are loaded with vitamins, minerals, heart healthy fats and protein. They are high calorie but not empty calorie – your body needs fat and calories in order to function.
Avoid salted and roasted nuts as they aren’t as healthy for you. It’s best to soak and sprout your nuts as it makes them easier to digest and more nutritious.
What Are Steel Cut Oats?
These are oats that have been chopped into several small pieces. They are otherwise known as coarse oats or pinhead oats.
Oats are naturally gluten free but many are contaminated during growing or processing. They contain a protein similar to gluten but 80% of people that have issues with gluten can tolerate certified gluten free oats.
