When I first sampled these culinary coconut cacao nibs by Mum’s Original in Meghan Telpner’s kitchen, I immediately fell in love. It doesn’t get much better than chocolate dipped in coconut sugar. And the best part? Raw cacao nibs are teeming with antioxidants and valuable minerals like magnesium and iron, so they’re a health-promoting treat [...]
This recipe makes a lot more chips than the meagre amount you see in the picture. Unfortunately, I ate almost the entire batch before realizing I hadn’t snapped any photos of them. At least that’s an indication of how good they are, right? It’s intensely satisfying to gobble an enormous bowl of chips and know [...]
For many years, banana chips have been off my radar. Then, during a trip to Trader Joe’s a few months ago, I picked up a bag on a whim and my love for banana chips was reignited. Store-bought banana chips, even the organic ones, are typically fried in coconut oil and contain added sugars. I [...]
Most granola bar recipes contain oats. You probably already have a few recipes that use them, so I thought I’d experiment with something a little different. Enter buckwheat. It works perfectly in these granola bars, plus it’s a great source of fibre, which is great for our digestive tracts, cholesterol levels and blood sugar balance. [...]

Now, I’m usually not one to deprive health-minded companies of business, especially when they’re trying to provide a wholesome snack that [...]
In the last few months, I’ve made my crunchy roasted chickpeas time and time again. Then I wondered: could I create the same effect with other beans? The answer? Heck yeah! These roasted lentils are perfect for snacking. You’ll keep reaching for more, and you should – because they’re full of fibre and a great [...]
I’ll admit I was not crazy about these cookies at first. I don’t like protein powders and though I used one that was mild and neutral, the flavour still seemed a bit overwhelming. Slowly but surely, I grew to appreciate these little dense, satisfying nuggets with their delightful pops of chocolatey sweetness. They make the [...]
This isn’t the fanciest snack on the block. It doesn’t have many bells or whistles, but it’s sturdy, reliable and gets you where you need to go. Kinda like that hand-me-down bike you were embarrassed to ride when you were nine, or your dad’s borrowed old station wagon you wished was a flashy sports car. [...]
