We can make blinis with oatmeal, with applesauce to replace the banana, or salted blinis such as avocado, cheese and roe , with hummus, with eggplant paté or dried tomatoes, among others.
Croquettes of potato and tuna
Ingredients : two medium potatoes, one can of tuna to the natural or 150 grams of fresh cooked and shredded fish, one egg, half chopped onion very fine or crushed, 100 grams of breadcrumbs, chopped parsley, salt to taste and a spoonful of oil .

We make croquettes with wet hands and bake until brown on the outside for approximately 30 minutes, turning halfway through cooking.
In order to really be healthy croquettes, we must not only choose the ingredients very well, but also bake them instead of frying. Thus, we can make corn and carrot croquettes , broccoli , rice and spinach or others.
Strawberries with bitter chocolate
If in addition to sweet you always choose chocolate for snacking, a good and easy recipe is based on fresh fruits and bitter chocolate with a high degree of purity.
Ingredients : five strawberries, two spoons of grated coconut and only a small square of 25 grams of bitter chocolate with a high percentage of cocoa (I used it with 73%).
