Three Banting Snack Recipes

With Christmas around the corner, it is easy to fall off the Banting wagon (I already have a number of times!) It’s always going to be a constant discipline to look for the healthier options when it comes to treats. A few years ago, I met Sonja, who is a Clinical Dietitian. She experimented with some of Sally-Anne Creed’s snack recipes and guess what? I was the ecstatic recipient. Imagine me arriving hungry and enthusiastically being served this…

  1. 4 Tablespoons Creeds Almond Butter OR Creeds Organic Macadamia Nut Butter

  5. Squeeze about a tablespoon of orange juice out of the orange after zesting


  1. Mix all the above into a bowl and mix well using a fork.

They were simply delicious. So were these…

Sesame Crackers

Sesame Seed crackersThese were amazing…very biscuit-like and perfect with cream cheese.

  1. In a large bowl, stir almond flour, salt, sesame seeds, eggs and oil until well blended
  2. Separate dough into two halves
  3. Line two large (12 x 16) stainless steel baking sheets with parchment paper
  4. Place one half of the dough in the center of each lined sheet
  5. Cut another piece of parchment paper and place it over one of the balls of dough
  6. Roll dough out between the two pieces of parchment paper, until it is ⅛ inch thick and covers the entire baking sheet; remove top paper and repeat process with the other piece of dough
  7. Cut the dough with a knife or pizza cutter into 2 inch squares
  8. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown
  9. Cool and serve

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Superfood Breakfast Ball Ron Gabriel

Breakfast Balls


  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/3 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • 1/3 cup walnuts/pecans
  • 1/4 cup black sesame seeds
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of your favorite super green powder (optional)


Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor.

If the mixture is not moist enough to make balls out of, add 2-3 tablespoons of water and continue mixing.

Scoop out mixture with tablespoon and mold into balls. Eat right away, or refrigerate. Lasts several days in the refrigerator.

Tip: Keep some in the refrigerator for days when you don’t have time to make breakfast. You’ll have a fast, nutritious breakfast that will keep you going.
