- Make spice nuts yourself
Pepernoten and kruidnoten are sometimes mixed up. Kruidnoten are the hard half balls, pepernoten the softer cubes. We’ve already written a blog about healthy kruidnoten on Drogespieren before, so we’ll be happy to refer you to that. You will also find the recipe for chocolate seasonings here!
- Make your own pepernoten
Pepernoten are slightly less popular, but are also eaten a lot. Fortunately baking is also very easy.
Mix 175 grams of wholegrain flour or spelled flour with 1 tbsp speculaas spice, 1 tsp aniseed and 1 tbsp baking soda. Add 100 g honey and a few spoonfuls of almond milk and knead into dough. If necessary, add some extra almond milk for the correct structure. Leave the dough in the refrigerator for an hour and cut into small cubes; bake at 175 degrees in 10 minutes.
If necessary, you can also make tough tarts. Then make larger molds and fry for five minutes longer (or until golden brown).
- Make your own marzipan
Marzipan in a list of healthy Sinterklaas snacks? Interestingly, this delicacy is less unhealthy than many people think – do not eat too much of it, because it does contain a lot of calories. Mix 250 grams white almonds, 90 grams honey and a large teaspoon of gingerbread spices in a blender. Let it grind for a few minutes, until a ball of marzipan arises.
Here you can mold kneads of molds! You can of course also decorate the marzipan with chocolate or dyes. For example, a dash of beet juice gives a nice pink color.
- Speculaas muffins
These speculaas 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 to a ball of almond paste and put it in the refrigerator. Then melt 70 grams butter, and mix it with two mashed bananas and three eggs. Then add another 300 grams of almond flour, 1 tbsp of gingerbread spices, 1 tbsp baking powder and a pinch of salt.
Fill in muffin molds and fill them with half of the batter. Put a scoop of food everywhere and scoop the rest of the batter over it. Garnish the muffins with nuts and fry in 180 minutes at 180 degrees.
- Healthy chocolate milk
Of course, healthy Sinterklaas snacks do not all have to be edible. Also nice drinks are of course part of the menu. Making healthier chocolate milk is fortunately very easy. Add per cup milk 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 2 tablespoons cocoa to, and you’re done! Do you like sweeter, stir in a spoonful of honey. Or use half coconut milk if you want a more creamy drink!
