When hunger strikes, a hardboiled egg is a great grab-and-go snack. It’s high in protein, which will curb your appetite and keep you from reaching for something less-than-healthy. Plus it packs nutrients like vitamins D and B12, but only contains 77 calories. Simply prep a bunch of hard-boiled eggs at once, and store them in the fridge for a quick hunger fix.
What's more refreshing than a smoothie? By adding in the right ingredients, it will keep you full until your next meal. "Just blend together 1/2 cup frozen wild blueberries with half of a frozen banana, 1/3 cup low-fat milk, and 4 ounces low-fat plain Greek yogurt," Gorin says. "At just 210 calories, it's a winner: the wild blueberries offer filling fiber and antioxidants, you'll get added fiber from the banana, and the milk and yogurt provide protein."
Yogurt is and shall remain an important component in our snacking culture. And I’m not speaking of those over-sugared versions, but of proper plain natural yogurt. Make a craft out of it. You won’t believe how many different, almost artisan creations you can come up with. The ingredients of the version above are grapes, walnuts, some cinnamon and a few sprinkles of maple syrup. Love it! Up for more ideas? Have a look over here.
And its cheap too. I was buying my chickpeas and processing them myself (resulting in a somewhat less than fine flour) as I thought that would be the cheapest way to get chickpea flour (as you do) and then I checked out the price difference at the health food shop and it was at least a dollar cheaper to buy the flour. Now I just buy the flour that is super fine and perfect for just about everything.

I’m pretty sure this post will make vegan marathon training more doable for me! I’m doing pretty good, but I get sooooo hungry between meals the day or two after a long run. This should help hold me over. Perfect timing too, because in the next few weeks I’ll be up to the longest runs. I just tried the endurance crackers and the protein bars and despite the fact that my crackers came out WAY thicker than yours did, they’re still great snacks! I think my favorite are the oatmeal squares. Awesome breakfast for sure! Thank you for the awesome ideas. :-)
Sweet & Savory Snacks to celebrate the holiday season! The December Snack Box was one of the most epic snack boxes of the year. Inside was a variety of snacks and vegan alternatives to classic staple ingredients, including a pack of delicious Larabars, a smooth Protein drink from Pirq, and more. The box was the perfect holiday gift for anyone on your list.
This is one of my favourite quick snacks, that is if you bake the acorn squash ahead of time. I like to include one or two baked acorn squash in my weekly food prep so they’re ready for snacks and meals during the week. My favourite fillings are peanut butter, yogurt and granola but you can also fill them with savoury ingredients like hummus, guacamole, quinoa, black beans, any mixture of those or anything else you can think of.
Freekeh is a cereal made from roasted green wheat. That's the one and only ingredient in this snack's original blend, making it an ideal packaged snack. With zero sodium, four grams of fiber, six grams of protein, and only 130 calories per quarter-cup serving, you can help yourself to an extra-large serving. Try rosemary sage or tamari when you want to mix things up.
Making homemade potato chips is surprisingly easy—just slice the potatoes thin, boil them in vinegar-spiked water, and fry until crispy. The vinegar keeps the chips from getting too dark as they fry. All of our custom potato chip seasonings are vegan, and this one, despite the name, is no exception. Savory nutritional yeast helps mimic the taste of the roasted bird; we grind it up along with granulated garlic, lemon zest, dried thyme, and dried mushrooms to round out the flavors, then toss the spice blend with freshly fried chips to coat.
Try not to over blend it or it will start to blend from the heat of the blender. It’s better if it’s ultra-thick and a little chunky. Once it’s blended, scoop it into a bowl and enjoy. You can make this with any frozen fruit but I’d recommend at least a small chunk of frozen banana for the perfect creaminess. Frozen mango and peaches are some of my favourites. Of course you can make it with chocolate protein powder too.

Thank you for the reminder of all the beautiful and tasty recipes you have given your readers over the past few years. While I am not vegan, I have loved your blog from the moment I started reading it and have tried many of your healthy recipes. People at work are always asking and commenting on what I’m eating when I make something from your blog. I know you are working hard on your new endeavors! Good luck!


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.
One is sweetened with maple syrup (or any liquid sweetener), and the other is sweetened with jam. I used a fruit juice sweetened jam in my fave flavor–blueberry. I am partial to the jammy version as it has better texture and extra fruit flavor, but I wanted to give you options. Plus some flavors (ahem…orange) aren’t easy to find in a jam. Both of the recipes can serve as templates for making any flavor you like. Just switch up the type of juice or jam and you can have snacks of just about any fruity sort.
That same vegan nacho cheese sauce makes for a serious plate of nachos. We use freshly fried tortilla wedges (they're sturdier than store-bought chips) as the base for vegan refried beans and chili, Roasted-Tomato Salsa, guacamole, and tons of fresh and pickled veggies. Layering the chips and toppings for even coverage is a little extra work, but it's worth it for the many more balanced bites you'll get.

Oatmeal is a low-fat, high-protein superfood that your body digests slowly — meaning you'll stay satisfied longer — because of all of its bulky soluble fiber. Minchen swears by this easy recipe: Combine 1 cup dry quick oats, 2/3 cup coconut flakes, 1/2 cup almond butter, 1/2 cup whole chia seeds, 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, 1/3 cup raw honey, and 1 tsp vanilla. Let the mixture cool in the refrigerator for 1 hour in an airtight container, then roll into 1-inch balls, which you can eat throughout the week.
When tomatoes are out of season, you can still make great bruschetta by breaking out a can. Slowly roasting canned whole tomatoes concentrates their flavors, and mixing them with basil and red wine vinegar as a topping for toast produces a delicious year-round snack. We like to rub the toasts with garlic before spooning on the tomatoes to get an extra layer of flavor.
