Healthy Sinterklaas snacks for a wonderful evening!

  1. Sinterklaas is coming again! And that means, in addition to a large bag of presents, of course that there will be a lot of goodies on the table again for an evening. Very nice, but also not ideal if you were just trying to eat a little healthier. Fortunately, there are certainly ways to keep a little responsible. For example, making healthy Sinterklaas snacks yourself is a good option!

  1. In today's blog, we'll give you some easy recipes for all your favorite treats. That way you get through that evening without feeling guilty!

A little unhealthy is fine

  1. Of course the recipes in this blog are not really healthy either. For example, they still contain sweeteners like honey - basically just sugar. It is therefore better not to eat these gingerbread cookies and muffins every day. However, you really don't have to worry for once.

  1. The trick is to eat a healthy diet most of the time â € “then you might want to be looser every now and then. If necessary, prepare a tasty winter vegetable soup for dinner, so that everyone will also get their vitamins. And just enjoy the homemade snacks!

Healthy Sinterklaas snacks

  1. Whoever says Sinterklaas, says ginger nuts and spice nuts. These should certainly not be missing from a list of healthy Sinterklaas snacks. However, we also list some other recipes below that will certainly be appreciated during the party.

  1. Pepernoten and spice nuts are sometimes confused. Kruidnuts are the hard half balls, ginger nuts are the softer cubes. We have previously written a blog about healthy spice nuts on Drosspieren, so we would like to refer you to that. You will also find the recipe for chocolate spice nuts right here!

  1. Pepernuts are slightly less popular, but are also eaten a lot. Fortunately, baking yourself is also very easy.

  1. Mix 175 grams of wholemeal flour or spelled flour with 1 tbsp gingerbread spices, 1 tsp anise and 1 tsp baking powder. Add 100 g honey and a few spoons of almond milk and knead into a dough. If necessary, add some extra almond milk for the right texture. Leave the dough in the fridge for an hour and cut into small cubes; bake for 10 minutes at 175 degrees.

  1. You can also use the dough to make chewy dolls. Then make larger ramekins and bake for 5 minutes longer (or until golden brown).

  1. Marzipan in a list of healthy Sinterklaas snacks? Interestingly enough, this treat is less unhealthy than many people think - just don't eat too much of it, as it is high in calories. Mix 250 grams of white almonds, 90 grams of honey and a large teaspoon of gingerbread spices in a blender. Grind for a few minutes until a ball of marzipan forms.

  1. You can then knead this into shapes! You can of course also further decorate the marzipan with chocolate or dyes. For example, a dash of beet juice gives it a nice pink color.

  1. These gingerbread muffins are filled with homemade almond paste, for an extra luxurious Sinterklaas snack! Mix 25 grams of almond flour, 50 grams of raisins and some lemon juice in the blender into a ball of almond paste and put it in the refrigerator. Then melt 70 grams of butter and mix it with two mashed bananas and three eggs. Then add 300 grams of almond flour, 1 tbsp gingerbread spices, 1 tsp baking powder and a pinch of salt.

  1. Grease muffin cups and fill them with half the batter. Place a scoop of meat everywhere and spoon the rest of the batter over it. Garnish the muffins with nuts and bake them for 30 minutes at 180 degrees.

  1. Of course, healthy Sinterklaas snacks do not all have to be edible. Tasty drinks are of course also part of the menu. Fortunately, making healthier chocolate milk yourself is very easy. Add 1 tsp vanilla extract and 2 tbsp cocoa per cup of milk and you're done! If you like it sweeter, stir in another spoonful of honey. Or use half coconut milk if you want a creamier drink!

  1. Not every Sinterklaas snack has to be sweet. For example, you can easily make savory pastry letters with puff pastry. For example, fill the letter with mozzarella, tomatoes, basil and olives. Roll up well, make sure all edges are sealed, and then shape it into a letter. Then you only have to bake the letter at 200 degrees for half an hour!

  1. Of course you can also use other fillings. Think, for example, of seasoned minced meat, pumpkin and goat cheese or mushrooms.

Eaten more than planned?

  1. Did you end up eating more than you wanted, even these relatively healthy Sinterklaas snacks? Fortunately, there is not a man overboard. Don't worry too much: you really don't suddenly gain kilos from such a night out shooting.

  1. It is best to pay extra attention to your diet the following days. Make a few tasty salads or soups with lots of vegetables, drink enough and snack less. You will notice that you will feel good about yourself again!
