This whole-grain staple isn't just for breakfast. Gorin loves eating oatmeal as a snack — but with a tasty twist. "Oats are a good source of filling fiber, and the almond butter offers mono- and poly-unsaturated fats that are satiating and heart-healthy." But instead of using flavored oatmeal, go with a packet of unsweetened instant oatmeal. "Many flavored oatmeals contain a lot of added sugar. If you want to add a bit of sweetness, you can sprinkle on some cinnamon or unsweetened cocoa powder. Then stir in a tablespoon of almond butter," she says.
It's easy enough to find vegan snacks; after all, things like store-bought hummus, fruit, and some crackers come that way naturally. But when a real craving hits, we tend to want something packed with tons of flavor—like a sweet-and-sour eggplant caponata for dipping, a batch of hearty homemade Wheat Thins, or a piece of avocado toast that's gussied up with sweet baby peas and spicy radishes. Because there's a time and a place for everything, including junky snacks, we also have recipes for saucy Korean-style fried cauliflower and fully loaded nachos covered in a vegan queso-style sauce. Keep reading for 18 of our favorite vegan snacks that will fend off any attack.
Chocolate-topped digestive biscuits from brands like McVitie's are great candidates for veganizing. Here, we rely on toasted sugar to provide depth of flavor in the absence of lactose, and use coconut oil to make a dairy-free dough that's easy to handle. A blend of all-purpose and whole wheat flour supplies the right combination of toasty flavor and crisp-yet-tender texture. Top with the high-quality vegan chocolate of your choice.
I made those today with lime flavour. I wanted sour candy and didn’t have citric acid… but now it’s in a mold (same kind of mold you used) in the fridge. I tried to get it out of the mold, but it’s not possible. it breaks. So is there a better way to get it out or didn’t I use enough agar-agar? Or is it not long enough in the fridge yet… what did I do wrong?
I am SO envious of you guys for your ability to just trot into a store and buy whatever vegan cheeses, faux meats etc. your hearts desire. We get hideous vegan cheese here, you can’t even call it cheese because it borders on melted plastic and quorn, which tends to be made using egg white base so bollocks to vegans. The only other alternatives are heinously tough hotdogs that never sell. I am seriously thinking of starting a sodding Aussie vegan food company right here! You want easy peasy seitan hotdogs that will knock anything else out of the ballpark? Just get your dry ingredients sorted, bosh in your wet, mix and roll in foil then steam. DONE. Mary’s test kitchen rules for creating these babies. We have them a lot. We thought that the flavour was a little low so we just doubled everything in the flavour recipe aside from the coconut oil and chilli and they are Steve’s go to favourite hotdogs now. Try these. You will love them. I guarantee! http://www.marystestkitchen.com/vegan-hot-dogs-2-paprika-seitan-sausages/
Raw energy bites are one of the easiest and tastiest snacks to keep on hand during a busy week. Try making a batch on the weekend to store in the fridge so you can grab a few when hunger strikes. They’re also a great way to get essential omega-3 fats into your nutrition to your diet as many are made with ingredients like hemp seeds, ground flax, almonds or cashews.
Snacks are truly a godsend—they can get you through a busy work week, a cram session in a dimly lit library basement, and even the kind of colossal breakup that leaves you ugly-crying in that same sad basement searching for something to eat your woes away. To our delight, a number of companies have been making accidentally vegan snacks for years, and we’ve compiled a list of a few of our favorite go-to treats you can find practically anywhere. Bookmark this list for the next time you’re on a road trip in the middle of nowhere, in need of something to munch on at the movies, or trying to get through a difficult moment and are in need of some sweet or salty fuel.
Scritchfield suggests this flavorful and energy-boosting treat whenever hunger seeps in, thanks to the nuts' combo of protein, fiber, and healthy fats. "Warm your favorite nuts on the stove with a variety of spices. Try almonds with lemon juice and curry powder for a savory, crunchy duo. Curry powder helps to reduce inflammation and aids in digestion," says Scritchfield.

To improve thyroid function — the gland manages growth and metabolism — look no further than a low-calorie, low-fat hard-boiled egg, suggests registered dietitian Amy Shapiro. If you like spice, drizzle your snack with sriracha sauce. "It contains capsaicin, a compound found in chile peppers that helpsburn calories and fat," says Karen Ansel M.S., coauthor of The Calendar Diet.
I think you could definitely pass these as “New Years Eve”-ish!! So sparkly and festive. 🙂 Also the idea of a black eyed pea cupcake totally made me laugh…sounds like something I’d consider too, haha. Hope the last few days of your 2016 are lovely, these Gummies look incredible!! (I had the same auto correct problem just now, glad I caught it before I told you your “dummies” look incredible!

Need to use up some leftover ingredients? Make a pita pizza! Don’t fret about making the dough, that’s what whole grain pita bread is for. While pita bread makes filling and tasty sandwiches, it’s also a great base for loading toppings on. Whole grain pita bread is typically high in protein and fiber, and it’s ideal for the lazy vegan because it’s already cooked for you! Pita pizza is also awesome because it’s just the right size for one person. Start with pita bread, spread on some sauce, add some non-dairy cheese, and pile on any vegetables you have on hand. This Vegan Pepper Jack Cashew Cheese is my favorite as it will add some spice to your Homemade Pita Bread. For an easy fix, use store-bought vegan cheese like Daiya or Tofutti. Mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach or broccoli are healthy options for vegetable toppings, and many of these can come frozen or from a jar. Check out this Ultimate Guide to Making Homemade Pizza and simply use a pita for the base. After assembled, pop your pita in an oven at 425 degrees for 8-10 minutes and you’ve got yourself a quick and wholesome meal.
