10 Healthy Study Snacks and Iced Coffee!

Hi Everyone! Wow, it's been a long time since I have posted on here. Uni work has literally taken over my life this past month...but it's not stopped me from eating and creating recipes! Quite the opposite actually; when I'm working I literally cannot stop eating.

I know a lot of people will be in the same boat just now so I thought I would dedicate this post to some of my favourite study snacks and drinks! 

SNACK 1: Homemade Roasted Honey Cinnamon Chickpeas

The perfect crunchy snack.

You will need:
(inspired by a recipe I found on fitsugar)

- 400g can chickpeas
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 3 tsp honey (or agave for strict vegans)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp sea salt 

  1. Preheat oven to 375F | 190C.
  2. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Dry with a kitchen towel.
  3. Spread onto a lined baking tray in a single layer; bake for 45 minutes until crispy, shaking half way through. 
  4. Mix together with the honey/agave, oil, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
  5. As soon as you take the chickpeas out of the oven, mix together with the honey mixture. Place back in the oven for another 10 minutes until caramelised and crispy! Store leftovers (which I doubt you will have) in an airtight container for up to 4 days.


SNACK 2: Savoury Roasted White Beans

The perfect crunchy snack...take two.

You will need:

- 1 can of butter beans (white beans)
- 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- pinch of sea salt

  1. Preheat oven to 400F | 200C.
  2. Drain and rinse the beans. Dry with a kitchen towel.
  3. Spread onto a lined baking tray in a single layer and mix with the oil and salt (you can add any herbs or spices you would like, cumin and oregano work well).
  4. Roast for 15 minutes at 400F | 200C, shake and turn the oven down to 350F | 175C.
  5. Bake for a further 20-30 minutes, checking and shaking every 10 minutes or so.
  6. Take out of the oven when crispy and leave to cool and crisp up further.


SNACK 3: Raw Carob Figgy Bites

The perfect burst of sweetness

You will need:

- 1 soaked dried fig
- 4 medjool dates
- 10 almonds
- a bit of water
- 2 tbsp rolled oats (replace this with 2tbsp dried mulberries or chopped nuts for fully raw)
- carob/ cacao powder to coat.

  1. Process the oats to make oat flour. 
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor and pulse until combined.
  3. Roll into small balls and roll in carob or cacao powder to coat!


SNACK 4: Acai Burst 

Perfect for a quick power burst

A simple way to get some well needed energy.. an organic burst Acai Capsule mixed with 1tbsp yogurt (you can use greek yogurt, coyo, soy yogurt).

Acai is full of antioxidants, can reduce the effects of ageing, nourishes the skin, help with weight loss and is high in omega 3 ALA.


SNACK 5: Wheatgrass Shooter

Perfect for a quick power burst...take two!

The same as above but this time with organic burst Wheatgrass! Mix 1/2 tsp wheatgrass powder, 1tbsp yogurt and 1tsp agave/honey.

Wheatgrass has been shown to detox and cleanse, help with healthy skin, hair and nails, strengthen the immune system, help with weightless and boost energy!


SNACK 6: Homemade Sesame Snacks

These little snacks are still in the experimentation phase just now, especially when it comes to the sweetener. Over the next week I am going to continue experimenting using honey, agave and date caramel. I cannot wait to see how the date caramel one turns out! I will update this post as I try each one.

For this version, my flatmate and I used brown sugar and they turned out so delicious!

You will need:

- 1/2 cup sesame seeds
- 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
- 1 tbsp sunflower seeds
- 1 tbsp chopped walnuts
- 1 tbsp chopped cashews
- 2 tbsp raisins
- lemon zest
- 1/4 - 1/2 cup caramel* .. see method.

  1. Toast the seeds in a non-stick pan for a few minutes. Move to a separate bowl and mix in the nuts and raisins and some lemon zest (gives the sesame snaps such a unique flavour).
  2. Make caramel - I would recommend using a professional tutorial for this ... ours was pretty trial and error! We heated up the sugar for 5 minutes or so before mixing in around 1.5tbsp rose water and 1tsp lemon juice. Stir and continue to cook on a low heat for a further 5-10 minutes until liquid and caramelly (ours started to burn a bit but it added to the flavour)! I'm also thinking you can use an equal amount of honey/agave heated up (it should perhaps be mixed with a bit of organic nut butter so it will set better), or even date caramel ...but this is just an idea, i'll need to experiment!
  3. Mix the seed mixture into the caramel and quickly spread onto a lined baking tray, flattening out as quickly as possible. Score lightly into squares/ bars with a knife. 
  4. Leave to cool for 10-20 minutes before breaking into squares and moving to a sealed, airtight container. Can be stored for a week.
As I mentioned, I'll update this with a better recipe after more experiments!!


SNACK 7: Watermelon

The perfect refreshing snack.

 Watermelon with fresh mint ... tasty, refreshing, delicious, all natural. 'Nuff said.


SNACK 8: ButterBean Brownies

The perfect chocolatey snack.

Vegan brownies; So rich and chocolatey! These brownies are low in fat, low in sugar, flour-free and good for you, in moderation, as one of the main ingredients is white beans. You would never guess they were healthy though; managed to trick a few people!

I will be saving the recipe for these for a post on their own (later on in the week) but if you can't wait you can find it on my instagram and facebook pages.

The perfect chocolatey snack


SNACK (drink) 9: Coco Cafe Coconut Water Iced Coffee

My new favourite drink. Studying means coffee. Hot weather means cold coffee. A healthy take means cold coffee with coconut water. I present to you: Coco Cafe. Simply Vita Coco coconut water, espresso, splash of fat reduced milk and, in the mocha version, a hint of chocolate.  Words just cannot describe...you must try it yourself! I had a little mini photoshoot for this...was in a procrastination phase! haha

Serve cold with plenty of ice!


SNACK 10: Homemade Ice Lollies

These things are so versatile. Simply pour your favourite fresh fruit juice or puree into an ice lolly mould and freeze! Add sliced fresh fruit and zest for a twist!

The ice lolly above is pureed banana mixed with coconut water with slices of strawberry, frozen to perfection in 3-4 hours. Delicious!


So, there you have it. 10 of my favourite study snacks. I'll probably be making a part two after this last week of coursework! What's your favourite study snacks? Will you be trying any of these? Good luck to everyone who has exams coming up!
