We understand the struggle of finding healthy recipes that are easy and quick. Thanks to our community members, we have compiled 3 easy healthy recipes for you that will take you less than 20 minutes to prepare.
A big reason we tend to not eat healthily is that we think that they take too long to make or they just don’t taste good. But believe us when we say that eating healthy is not as difficult as you think. We took to Instagram to ask our loyal followers what they like to make to stay healthy. These recipes are ideal for beginners and we just had to give them a go ourselves as well. Read on to find out what these easy healthy recipes are and check out our marketing team reviews.

“This recipe was really easy to make and a healthier, cheaper alternative to acai bowls that I love. Freezing bananas is a really good idea to get ice-cream like texture. However, make sure your strawberries are sweet if not you might need to add some honey to make it sweeter.”

Healthy Dessert With Oats, Peanut Butter, And Oreos
Now before you read “oats” and decide to skip this one, hear us out first. While oats are known to not be the most delicious thing in the world, by adding certain ingredients you can actually make them taste quite yummy. For this oats recipe, our member @divnchy decided to have the best of both worlds by incorporating peanut butter, chocolate chips, and oreos in them. Who said you cannot be healthy while eating chocolates?

½ cup oats
2 tbsp peanut butter
2 oreo cookies
- Add oats, peanut butter, and milk in a large bowl.
- Add milk and mix till you get an even mixture.
- Add chocolate chips.
- Refrigerate for an hour at least to chill (this is the longest part but its worth it)
- Crush Oreos to top it off and enjoy!

“This was my first time trying oats so I honestly did not have much expectations. But the final taste was SO GOOD! I replaced peanut butter with nutella and the oats absorbed the flavour so well. The texture takes a while to get used to but it feels like rice after a point. Loved it!”
All these recipes can also be made vegan by simply removing or replacing certain ingredients. For instance, replace dairy milk with oats or almond milk. Remove eggs if you don’t want them. All these recipes can be made according to your preferences. Vegan snacks are also a great option if you want to find healthier alternatives to your snacking.
