Here are 7 great ideas for snacks that are easy to make at home and perfect to take to work for the little pick-me-up that is usually required after lunch:

Laddoos packed with energy

Laddoos typically are sweets but these are little balls packed full of energy. Instead of rounding them into energy balls, a person can make their own version of an energy bar and all the ingredients can all be found in one's kitchen - sesame seeds, chocolate chips, almonds, honey and peanut butter.


Hummus is one of the wonders of-the-world. It can be used on and with so many things and you can't beat some pita chips and hummus. Hummus is packed full of protein due to the chickpeas in it and it's also high in fibre. One can get quite creative with different flavours of hummus too.

Bircher muesli with chia seeds

Almost all of the ingredients in this tasty treat are healthy. Museli is good for you, as are chia seeds, yoghurt, nuts and fruit. The end result is an appetising, energising, fibrous, healthy snack that is borderline dessert!

Peanut butter and banana sandwich

Banana's are full of potassium and are known to be packed full of energy, that is released slowly and helps the brain keep alert. If you aren't interested in the carbs, take some peanut butter and dollop it right onto the banana. A great, quick snack!

Chicken nuggets covered with masala oats

Oats are about the healthiest carb that you can consume. And there are lots of good uses for oats in the kitchen such as cookies, cakes and porridges, so once you've bought them, you'll use them. This snack is particularly good because chicken is a great source of lean protein.

Fried egg(s) on top of quinoa

Quinoa is already delicious and it's taken to a whole new level when it's topped with an egg. The dish is vegan and gluten-free and both of the main ingredients are crammed full of protein.

Barley, apple and pumpkin seed salad

All of these ingredients on the salad are there for a reason. Barley is great at filling a person's stomach up, apples are a healthy and delicious fruit and pumpkins seeds are full of energy, nutrients and fibre. And the pumpkin seeds add a delicious and delightful crunch to the salad.
