If anyone hasn’t noticed studying makes you really hungry?
I used to never really know what to snack on whenever I got hungry.
I would just stare into the fridge and then eventually I would just give up and grab some pop and something greasy.
But then later I would realize how tired this junk food made me feel and I would be just way too lazy to study.
So today I’m going to give you ten healthy and easy snack ideas that are going to give you the energy to get studying and stay studying.
Apples do wonders for your brain they contain antioxidants like quercetin that helps with your memory and pectin which is a fiber that improves your digestive health.
To make these first, we’re going to cut our apples into thin slices this gets a little bit trickier as the slices get thinner so just be careful to make the peanut butter drizzle.
We are going to take some peanut butter and then add some dairy free milk to this.
Mix it up until you get a running consistency like this and then taste it to make sure that your peanut butter hasn’t been diluted too much.
If it has added a little bit of coconut or cane sugar to sweeten it back up.
Next, we’re just going to lay out our apples and then drizzle the peanut butter mixture on top, you can also add some mini dark chocolate chips or white chocolate chips or peanut butter chips, which would be amazing as well.
Frozen yogurt bites:
Using some soy yogurt which contains no dairy, all you’re going to do is add whatever you want to your yogurt, like, make them maple flavored by adding some maple syrup.
Then you’re going to put them into a bag and then cut off the end and then make lots of yogurt onto a baking sheet.
Throw these into the freezer for a couple of hours and then you’ll have these delicious little frozen bites.
Just store these in the freezer and then have them on hand whenever you feel like something, a little bit sweet.
Veggies with homemade veggie dip:
Ever it’s basically a vegan ranch, so first you’re going to mix some chopped up parsley with vegan mayonnaise.
Parsley not only makes the food taste bomb but it also contains flavonoids that are proven to reduce the risk of some cancers.
It also contains so much vitamin K, that 2 tablespoons contain almost 200% of your recommended daily value which is unreal.
Next, you’re just going to add some almond milk, you can add any other dairy-free milk, next just add some onion, salt and also some garlic powder, next, you’re just going to mix this all together and top it off with a little bit of fresh parsley and there you have it.
Pumpkin spice energy balls:
They’re incredibly moist, they taste just like the pumpkin spice latte.
You don’t need any special equipment for these, all you’re going to do is mix together rolled oats, spelled flour, peanut butter, some pumpkin puree, and pumpkin spice.
If you can’t find any pumpkin spice it’s all good just mixed together with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves.
Finally, add a little bit of liquid sweetener and then mix this all together until everything is combined.

Take some grapes and just throw them into your freezer it tastes like candy whenever you want a sweet snack
Pan-fried cinnamon bananas:
Super simple, just cut up your banana then fry them up for a few seconds with coconut oil.
Just make a mixture of coconut sugar and cinnamon. I added this onto one side flip them over and then added some more.
It’s really good with a sprinkle of nutmeg to cook these to whatever taste you like. The longer you go the softer they’ll be.
Just watch them as you go and you’ll be able to tell when they start getting softer just keep the heat really low.
These taste like cinnamon banana bread they’re absolutely delicious.
Homemade sweet potato fries:
First, just cut up your sweet potato into long strips.
Next, just moving the pieces into my pan then, you’re just going to add some seasoning salt and then spread a small amount of coconut oil all over them, doesn’t have to coat them perfectly because when they’re in the oven you’re going to push them around every few minutes.
Sweet potato is full of carbs which is exactly what we want as students our brain runs on this stuff.
Anyone on a low-carb diet is not a good idea.
Blueberry fruit pops:
You can basically use any fruit you eat. Like for this one just blend together with your fresh or frozen fruit, some almond milk and a little bit of coconut sugar.

Avocado contains fatty acids which are essential for our brain function after all our brain is made of 60% fat.
