Healthy homemade graze box with a few tasty treats thrown in, too!
Filling, good for you, and just a teeny bit naughty… The perfect snack!
The HHH and I both keep a small box of this homemade graze box in our lunch bags because it’s the best thing to dive into when you’re feeling a bit peckish. You only need a handful to stave off hunger between meals as it’s packed full of carbs, protein and healthy fats.
Plus, if you’re anything like us and the thought of a chocolate bar or packet of crisps leads you astray, the mini marshmallows and tiny chocolate drops go a long way to making this snack seem much more appealing!
Buying the ingredients for this might feel like a lot of money when you’re in the shop, but everything in my batch cost £15 in total from Aldi. When you work it out, you get at least 2 full batches from that lot, which could last you up to 6 months… Suddenly £15 for half a year’s worth of snacks doesn’t seem too bad!
