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.
Packed with fiber, water, and antioxidants, fruits and vegetables are great choices for diet-friendly snacking. But the standard banana or carrots and ranch dip can get old quick. Instead, try a sliced apple with a lowfat cheese wedge, like Laughing Cow Light. "Having a little extra fat is good in a snack because it sustains you longer," says McLachlan.
Bust out your slow cooker and make some chili. A pot of chili will last you all week long and is perfect for any season and for any meal. Vegan chili is super easy; all you need are some spices, a couple cans of beans, and simple vegetables like corn, onion, and tomatoes. Chili is adaptable and tastes super with other ingredients like beer or sweet potatoes. This Three Bean and Sweet Potato Chili is a vegan wonder as you just need to add your ingredients and let them simmer. Same goes for this Sweet and Spicy Pumpkin Chili. Chili also makes for an extraordinary make-ahead meal. For the more adventurous, add some vegan sour cream or cheese for an extra indulgence. To use up those leftover pantry goods, this Frito Chili Pie is an American bar-food staple that definitely suits a lazy vegan lifestyle. For more slow cooker ideas beyond chili, try using protein-packed lentils in stews and soups.
i thought you would also want to know that there is a virus attached to your blog–when i go to your blog from google search, a blinking alert shows up in the place where your blog address was and tells me that there are viruses on my computer and then tells me to clean it– i thought it was valid because it was from microsoft essentials–my spyware–but then it downloaded something–i just took it off my computer–thank goodness! also, some of your recipes won’t print–it tells me there is insufficient memory to print (error in page script)–on some of them but on others it prints fine. just wanted to let you know! thanks for the great ideas!!!
But it’s far from slim pickings when it comes to vegan snacks that are meat-, dairy-, and egg-free. We’re here to dig you out of your hummus-and-carrots rut with 19 sweet and savory vegan recipes that take less than 10 minutes to put together—because really, when that mid-morning crash, afternoon slump, or post-dinner pang hits, who wants to wait longer than that?
Feeling in the mood for cookies? While one standard Oreo or Chips Ahoy won't likely derail your diet, it's tough to stop at one. That's where a good substitute comes in. McLachlan recommends 2 graham cracker squares spread with light peanut butter. You'll get a mix of sweet and salty flavors, plus a protein and fat boost from the peanut butter, which will keep you full till your next meal.
This is SO helpful, because each time I’ve tried going vegan, it’s BETWEEN meals I’ve been stumped. OK, I made a healthy vegan breakfast. OK, I have a delicious vegan dinner planned. But …. now what?! And it’s funny, because it’s not like I snack on hard-boiled eggs or cheese, I just — I guess I couldn’t think of ANYTHING healthy to eat, not just something vegan! :-) (Except for plain straight veggies. And I just have way too much of a sweet tooth to feel called to snack on them by themselves.)
Simple. Delicious. Addictive. 8 grams of protein per bar. Meet the protein bars that carried us through miles and miles of walking throughout NYC! I added protein powder to rev up the protein in these bars, making sure they would give me lasting energy when out and about. I wasn’t really sure what they would taste like with 1/2 cup of protein powder, but I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome! Just make sure you use a pleasant tasting protein powder and you’ll be fine. I used an unsweetened rice protein powder (Garden of Life) which worked great as it doesn’t have a strong flavour.

Well you are wayyy faster than me (I’ve read some of your running posts)! Slow and steady for me. :-) But I seriously don’t think I could do it without your blog. I really am feeling better, more energy and focus, so much so that my boyfriend has been eating mostly vegan with me during the week! I’m so glad that I found your blog…and I’m sure you’ve heard this a million times before, but you really have helped me become a healthier person!! I don’t know if I’m glowing yet, but I’ll get there. :-)
I would like to leave my mark on this floating rock that we call Earth by showing the world and humanity that being a vegan is not difficult, and that it’s just a simple change in mindset and lifestyle. It is in my greatest hopes that you find my content educational, inspirational, funny & witty, but most importantly a community where we come together where we live in peace and harmony.

October’s box warmed you up with flavors and spices of the season. Split Nutrition’s side-by-side nut butter and fruit spreads are delicious on-the-go snacks. Dr. in the Kitchen Flackers in a full-size 4-serving pack were a perfect way to snack with friends. And for that sweet tooth, Crazy Go Nuts Oatmeal Cookie-flavored walnuts were a treat. 8 more delicious items came this month.

The Mediterranean diet isn't just one of the healthiest in the world, it's also one of the most delicious. Plus, you can't beat eating a handful of olives for less than 100 calories. "This snack is packed with good-for-you fats from both the olives and the olive oil that will help keep you satisfied. Plus, tomatoes offer fiber, as well as cancer-fighting lycopene," says Amy Gorin, M.S., R.D.N., owner of Amy Gorin Nutrition in Jersey City, NJ. Slice the tomatoes in half, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with sea salt.
The health food stores always only have the flakes and I do no know why!?! It’s so annoying, and I have no clue how you get it to work with those because I have tried multiple times. I think you have to use A LOT more with the flakes, but the powder is just easier I’ve found. I researched after your comment on the chewy “gummy”-ness on FB, and I don’t think it’s possible with only using fruit juice because it’s the corn syrup in normal gummies that gives them that texture. With just juice they are more like jello in texture. Maybe brown rice syrup or some healthier sweetener that still has that viscosity could work? I don’t know, something to experiment with!
Oh wow, I can’t decide which of these recipes looks the yummiest! I’ve already made quite a few of these, but I spotted a few that I hadn’t seen before and really need to try. Particularly the cranberry lemon coconut chia bars… holy crap those look tasty. Thanks for the round-up of awesome recipes to get your vegan on! Carnivores be damned, vegans have more fun :)
