Here are some of our favourites...
Healthy Snacks with 3 Ingredients
Chickpeas + Rapeseed Oil + Sea Salt Flakes = Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas
Perfect for the snacker who can’t get enough crunch and salt. This recipe couldn’t be easier. Since the chickpeas stay fresh in an airtight container at room temperature, you can make enough in one go for a full week’s snacking.
Preheat oven to 230℃. Dry cooked chickpeas (click for method) between two tea towels or in a salad spinner until all excess water is gone (psst, tinned chickpeas are perfectly acceptable). Tip into a large roasting tray. Drizzle with rapeseed oil to lightly coat, sprinkle with sea salt flakes then spread evenly. Bake 30-40 minutes or until chickpeas are crisp, stirring about 20 minutes into the baking time. When done, taste and adjust salt. Allow to cool before storing.
Radish + Extra Virgin Olive Oil + Za’atar = Spiced Radishes
Za’atar is a flavour-packed Middle Eastern seasoning blend that includes Syrian oregano, sesame and sumac. It’s so fresh and zesty and makes a divine match with fiery radishes.
Cut fresh radishes in half then arrange on a plate. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with Za’atar to taste.
Medjool Date + Almond butter + Cacao Nibs = Sweet Stuffed Date
Make this healthy snack the next time you’re craving a sweet treat. These stuffed Medjool dates are sweet, soft, creamy, bitter and crunchy, and they come with a good amount of protein, fiber, and antioxidants...there’s a lot to love!
Organico Sourdough + WASi Seaweeds Pesto + Fried Egg = Seaweed Sourdough Tartine
This is the healthy snack for when you’ve worked up an appetite and you want a “fork and knife affair”. Locally-made WASi Seaweeds makes a delicious Garlic & Lemon Forest Kelp Pesto packed with vitamins, minerals and fiber.
Slice and toast sourdough. While bread is toasting, fry an egg. Once cooked, put the pesto and egg onto the toast in whichever order you prefer.
Lentil Chips + Tahini + Organic Raw Kraut = Probiotic Bites
A healthy snack for the digestive system! The Carrot and Fennel Raw Organic Kraut from The Cultured Food Company contains live, gut-friendly probiotic cultures, while the lentil chips and tahini provide tummy-loving fiber.
Top each chip with a drizzle of tahini and small spoonful of kraut.
Organico Oat Bread + Ricotta + Fruit-Sweetened Wild Blueberry Spread = Fruity Tartine
Slice the oat bread and spread with a thin layer of ricotta then a thin layer of wild blueberry spread.

Raw Vegetables + Organico Spicy Peanut Dressing = Peanuty Veg Sticks
Keep a bottle of our housemade Spicy Peanut Dressing in the fridge for noodle salads, quick stir-fries, marinated meat or tofu or...a raw vegetable dip!
Cut raw vegetables into slices or sticks–we recommend red bell peppers, carrots and cucumber–then dip into a small bowl of our spicy peanut dressing.
Granola + Oatly Oat Drink = Breakfast for Snack Time
Our newest granola is gluten-free, full of wholesome ingredients and contains only natural sweeteners. Plus the size of its clusters is just mind-boggling!
Pour granola and Oatly into a bowl. Enjoy with a spoon.
Organic Popcorn + Irish Seaweed Flakes = Umami Popcorn
We’re always looking for more ways to get nutrient-rich seaweed into our diet, and the seaweed flakes from Irish company The Laughing Oyster make it super easy. We love how they add a boost of complex flavour to fluffy air-popped organic popcorn.
Cook your popcorn by air-popping (click for method). Pour into a bowl and toss with seaweed flakes to taste.
