Dubai Mums Say: Healthy Snacks from Earth Goods

Dubai Mums Say: Healthy Snacks from Earth Goods

In this post, we’re sharing some of the amazing recipes for healthy snacks received during our competition with Earth Goods. Earth Goods brings to UAE mindful products sourced from no less than 20 countries, supporting the local farmers and, of course, contributing to the expansion of the local organic market. They provide ingredients for healthy breakfast and snacks (like oats, granola, agave syrup, flax seeds etc.) but also pasta and cooking ingredients like oils. They also have a whole section of recipes and that’s where I looked first for inspiration.
We asked the mums to tell us some of their recipes so we all can get some inspiration for healthy cooking and baking.
