I’m always looking for new and healthy snack options to keep hunger away between meals. It’s important, especially if you are exercising, to snack throughout the day. Healthy snacking can help you avoid overeating, keep your metabolism up and add more fruits and vegetables to your diet. Snacking smart is easy when you have healthier options on hand. It allows you to make smarter choices and be guilt-free when hungry. Make your snacks meaningful and be sure to include a protein and a carb (nothing too big), but the combination will help keep you satisfied until your next meal.
As much as I love carrots and hummus and an apple with almonds, it’s fun to switch things up. This bread is perfect to slice up for snacking, and it provides extra fiber for the day. The options for toppings are endless. Today I spread some hummus, spinach and a slice of turkey on top. Previously I have spread all natural peanut butter and sprinkled cinnamon on top. I’m sure cheese (like The Laughing Cow) with a few apple slices would be fantastic as well.
What are your go-to healthy snacks?
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup Coach’s Oats®
1 ⅓ cups white whole wheat flour
¼ tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
2 ¼ tsp. baking powder
¼ cup canola oil
8 oz plain yogurt
1 Tbsp. honey
1 Tbsp. turbinado sugar
¾ cup low fat buttermilk
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- In a large bowl whisk dry ingredients (except sugar) together. In a separate bowl mix together wet ingredients and sugar until well combined. Add wet ingredients to dry. Stir until dough is combined. Pour batter into floured and greased bread pan (makes about 2 “snack” loafs in an 8” pan; I’m sure it would make one great larger one as well). Bake for 40 minutes or until toothpick in center comes out clean. Let cool. Slice. Snack!
