Favourite snacks: When only something sweet will do

When my body need a bit more energy or I’m just craving a snack, I’ll often grab a banana or some dates. But you can’t exactly dunk a banana in your tea, so when I trialed the three all new-in snacks below, I was very excited! I can now enjoy that sweet treat with my cuppa (still in moderation, mind you!) while not straying off the path of health. 

Doisy & Dam SNAPS

These new superfood SNAPS are thin, crunchy shards of delicious dark choccie, perfect for snacking on when you are craving a bit of sweet but are being healthy. They come in two delicious flavours: Maple, Toasted Rice & Pink Salt; and Coconut & Lucuma. Please don’t make me pick a favourite, they are both delish.

Both of these unique flavour combos are vegan, gluten-free and made from the smoothest single-origin Colombian chocolate.

You can pick up a two-pack on the Doisy & Dam website for £5.50


If you’re looking for a healthy snack that will fill you up, give you sustained energy and satisfy any unhealthy cravings then you need to try a KIND bar right now. They are the most delicious bars I have ever tried (I don’t want to call them a cereal bar because they’re so much more than that, but I have had one as breakfast on the go, not going to lie).

Made with quality real ingredients (think WHOLE nuts, fruits and spices),  all the bars are gluten free and many are dairy free too (but not vegan as some contain honey). The bars come in a range of super yummy flavours from Dark Chocolate Almond Mint to Pomegranate Blueberry Pistachio. Again, can’t / won’t pick a favourite flavour.

The website offers a handy search option to ensure you pick the best bar for your dietary requirements. Available for around £1.29 per bar from most big supermarkets.

Pip & Nut Chocolate Orange Almond butter

I’m already a huge fan of Pip & Nut’s Almond Butter, as they use the highest quality ingredients and no refined sugar or palm oil. Now when I heard about this Limited Edition Chocolate Orange Almond Butter I squealed a little bit with excitement! Having cut out dairy and avoiding sugar where possible, could this be the healthy answer to a Terry’s Chocolate Orange?! 

So far, I have tried it on apple pieces and in my daily green smoothie as a little flavour kick (and on it’s own because you have to lick the spoon, don’t you?) – and it does not disappoint. Next on the list is to try baking with it because oh em gee, Orange Chocolate Almond Cookies anyone? I might make like a squirrel and stock up on these as they won’t be around for long!

Limited Edition, available in most supermarkets and online in bundles for £23.50 for a pack of six jars.
