Yes, Christmas is coming and we are already counting down the days until we can open the first door of our advent calendar. The holiday season brings with it a magical atmosphere, but also the most delicious delicacies, from Christmas cookies to baked apples, mulled wine and bratwurst – everything our hearts desire. For those who are eat more caloric food, but now there are great alternatives and even vegan Christmas geese. There are also healthier options for snacks, and we want to introduce them to you today. Of course, you should always eat what you want, but if you prefer an alternative to a piece of cake, then pay close attention.
Hmmm delicious! Calorie snacks for Christmas days
Waffle Thin Cinnamon Waffles from Koro are perfect at home or on the go when that waffle craving strikes again. The small, thin wafers take us straight to a vacation in the Netherlands and give off the wonderful smell of freshly baked waffle cookies. Thin wafers are also perfect as an accompaniment to tea or coffee.
For a healthier snack that keeps you full for longer, we recommend the limited edition ‘Chai’ Oatmeal Full Zip Up Jacket. If you already love the taste of tea in tea or pastries, then the bar is the perfect addition. Chai Flapjack is flavored with cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and cloves and promises a great Christmas treat.
Finally, we have vegan speculoos from Koro in our bag. With Mush, you have an extra pinch of Christmas magic in your bread in no time, giving it a heavenly aromatic taste. Our tip: Use a vegan spread as a filling on top of the delicious porridge. The recipe for this can be found further down in the article.
