Peanut butter banana and apple bites

Thick apple wedges topped with a dollop of peanut butter and banana slices are the perfect afternoon pick-me-ups to get you through your 3pm slump.

Apple chips

When you’ve got the nibbles and don’t fancy the guilt that comes from wiping out a whole bag of Doritos, homemade apple chips pack all the punch of pre-packaged goods minus the risk of the dreaded bloat.

All you need is two tablespoons of sugar, one tablespoon of ground cinnamon, and four thinly sliced apples. Simply core and slice the apples, coat them thickly in the combined sugar and cinnamon, and bake in the oven for two hours.

Fruit salad

Whoever said you couldn’t make friends with salad clearly never indulged in a fresh bowl of juicy, fresh fruit. From potassium rich bananas to antioxidant rich blueberries, seasonally selected fruits hold a range of dietary benefits and will give you the perfect energy boost.
