How To Keep Your Office Snack Drawer Healthy This Year

Come February, our New Year's resolutions often fall by the wayside, with the most common day for those well-intentioned goals to mutate into a fanciful memory the 12th of January.

Keeping healthy snacks on-hand is one of the easiest ways you can stay on track if your goal is to eat healthier this year. Try these nine delicious snack options to keep your office drawer a healthy snack zone.

healthy office desk snacks

Kookas Natural

Choc Goji Cookies

These healthy cookies are the real deal. Kookas Natural cookies are made from wholesome ingredients, chosen as much for their flavour as their nutritional content, so you won't find any imposter 'fake-healthy' cookies here. They're free from artificial additives, eggs and dairy, refined flour and sugar, and sweetened with honey and coconut sugar. Each flavour is divine, but the Choc Goji cookies are like little bites of happiness.

Bounce

Nut Butter Bars and Energy Balls

Bounce are pretty much king of healthy and delicious snacks, and they're so delicious it can be hard to choose just one! You can't really go wrong with any of their Energy Ball flavours, with Maple Pecan, Mint Cacao, and Peanut Butter Cacao a triple threat in our office…

But if you're craving a truly decadent snack, your perfect match is their new Nut Butter Bar range. They're made using a creamy nut-butter base, fortified with natural fibre and protein, and mixed with yummy natural flavours like Madagascan Vanilla. Designed as slow-release energy bars, and with a hit of 10g of protein per bar, these delicious Nut Butter Bars will provide long-lasting energy!

Kitz Living Foods

Raw Organic Rosemary & Black Pepper Crackers

These raw crackers are fantastic paired with some homemade hummus for a well-rounded and nutritious snack. They're made from activated sunflower and flax seeds to preserve nutrient value, and seasoned with rosemary, black pepper, Himalayan salt and rosemary essential oil – and that's all!

Coconut Magic

Raw Energy Bars

Made with premium organic virgin coconut oil and coconut flower nectar, then blended with whole food goodies like dates, almonds, coconut, and cashews, Coconut Magic's Raw Energy Bars are the ultimate in delicious energy foods. They're a great source of energy, essential fatty acids, and protein, and just so happen to pair perfectly with a cup of tea.

Loving Earth

Raw Organic Activated Almonds Coated in Coconut Mylk & Salted Caramel Chocolate

Just the name of these beauties is drool worthy! Made from raw organic activated almonds coated in a double layer of chocolate - first salted caramel made from evaporated coconut nectar and pink lake salt then Loving Earth's signature coconut mylk chocolate - these balls have a buttery, malty flavour reminiscent of toffee. They're the perfect afternoon pick me up.

Table of Plenty

Popped Rice Cakes

Healthy savoury snacking at its tastiest, Table of Plenty's Popped Rice Cakes – in Black Pepper & Chia or Rosemary & Sea Salt – are made from gluten-free wholegrains and naturally seasoned, with no artificial ingredients in sight. They're puffed instead of fried, and just 21kj each.

Made with just 9 wholesome ingredients – cherries, prunes, almonds, cashews, coconut, pepitas, sunflower seeds, raw cacao, & vanilla bean – these yummy raw food bars are low in sugar and high in fibre for a nutritious snack that, deceptively, tastes just like a cherry ripe. Yum!

Absolute Fruitz

Freeze-dried Fruit, Whole Strawberries

They're a delicious and convenient way to keep your fruit intake up for the day – plus you can always have a packet on-hand in your desk for when those 3pm sweet treat cravings hit.

These super snacks are loaded with vitamins and minerals, including iodine, iron, vitamins A, C, E, K, & B, zinc, and folate.
