What Are Vegan Snacks?

As a vegan, you may be thinking to yourself, ‘I really wish there were more vegan options for snacks’.

It may feel that all the tastiest store bought treats are made with dairy and gelatin, making them morally unavailable to you.

What are Vegan Snacks

If you feel this way, look no further! Below, we have listed several vegan snacks that you can buy at the store, or even whip up in your own kitchen.

Sweet Snacks for Vegans

Here are some vegan snacks for all you readers with a chronic sweet tooth.

Ants On A Log

This surprisingly tasty treat made of celery sticks loaded with peanut butter and raisins is full of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and unsaturated fats.

To make a nice snack, simply chop up some celery and combine with the other ingredients.

Coconut Dark Chocolate Bars

Vegan dark chocolate has numerous beneficial health effects, and unprocessed coconut is highly nutrient-dense.

You can quickly prepare some delectable vegan sweets by melting some dark chocolate, stirring in some coconut flakes, and letting everything dry or freeze. 

Energy Balls

Based on its components, energy balls can be an exceptionally nutritious vegan snack, packed with protein, fiber, and good fats.

Make at home with oats, peanut butter, vegan chocolate chips, and other nutritious ingredients.

Fruit And Nut Bars

Fruit and nut bars can indeed be delicious and totally nutritional, but you should make sure they are vegan before buying.

In fact, you could use nuts and dried fruit to produce your own handmade bars.

Fruit and Nut Butter

Fruit and nut butter, which is created by blending nuts, is a delectable vegan treat with lots of health advantages. It is rich in fiber and nutrients, which can make you feel satisfied and energized. 

Fruit Roll-Ups

Who didn’t love fruit roll-ups as a child? All you have to do to make your very own nutritious, vegan versions of these candies is flatten and dehydrate some fruit purée, and then slice them up.

Fruit Smoothies

Smoothies are a quick-and-easy snack for vegans, which are nutrient-dense and packed with minerals and antioxidants.

Mix your preferred fruits with water or plant-based milk, chia seeds, and flax seeds to create your own smoothies.

Homemade Granola

It’s so much easier and healthier to make your own granola. Simply prepare for less than an hour with oats, almonds, dried fruit, and even a little maple syrup to add sweetness.

Oatmeal

Oatmeal is frequently used as a breakfast item, but it also makes a simple vegan snack that is enjoyable throughout the day.

For the greatest results, combine oats with unsweetened plant-based milk, and your favorite fruit.

Peanut Butter and Banana

With lots of potassium, fiber, protein, and essential fats, peanut butter and bananas make a tasty and nutritious treat.

They taste so good combined, and will ensure that you remain filled and content throughout the day.

Trail Mix

A plant-based snack called trail mix often consists of coconut, fried fruit, cereal, and other items. They come in both sweet and savory varieties, and depending on their ingredients, they may even be vegan!

Savory Snacks for Vegans 

Savory Snacks for Vegans

If you prefer salt to sugar, here are some delicious savory vegan snacks.

Baked Seaweed

For a low-calorie vegan snack packed with folate, vitamins, fiber, and iodine, bake and slice some salted seaweed sheets.

As an alternative, you can purchase them from a store, but watch out for non-vegan options.

Baked Veggie Chips

If you’re craving potato chips, try baking some sliced vegetables with some sea salt and baking them into veggie chips.

They taste arguably better than store-bought, unhealthy potato chips, and are incredibly simple to produce at home.

Guacamole and Crackers

Guacamole is a veggie appetizer that is incredibly nutritious and full of healthful ingredients.

You may enjoy a nutritious vegan snack by making your own handmade guac, and serving it alongside some wholegrain crackers.

Hummus and Veggies

One of our all-time favorite vegan appetizers is hummus, since it is so rich in fiber, minerals, and unsaturated fats. The ideal savory snack can be produced by dipping some carrot and celery sticks in the mixture.

Popcorn

Popcorn is a treat produced by heating up maize kernels, that can be a very healthy vegan treat.

To increase the nourishment even further, mix in some nutritional yeast; this substance will create a tangy flavor that is similar to cheese.

Rice Cakes

The fewest ingredients, including wholegrain brown rice, are used to make rice cakes, which taste especially fantastic when garnished with some nourishing savory additions.

We highly recommend topping with avocado and sesame seeds.

Roasted Chickpeas

In addition to other nutrients, chickpeas are an excellent source of iron, copper, magnesium, and protein.

You can transform them into delightful small nibbles by roasting them until they are crunchy, and coating them with some olive oil and salt.

Salsa and Tortilla Chips

Homemade salsa, made from tomatoes, veggies, and seasonings, tastes great alongside tortilla chips. We recommend also making your own chips at home, as they will be a lot healthier (and tastier!)

Salted Edamame

Edamame are a great plant protein source that is also low in calorie content. They can be boiled and then sprinkled with sea salt or drizzled with soy sauce for a delicious savory treat.

Spiced Nuts

All nuts are a very healthy vegan snacking selection, and they taste even more delicious when they’ve been seasoned and drizzled with olive oil. These delightful snacks are stuffed with protein, fibre, vitamins, and minerals.

Trail Mix

Who said trail mixes had to be sweet? Use some salted nuts, dried veggies, and other bite-sized snacks to make this treat savory.

Veggie Smoothies

Smoothies don’t have to be sweet, either. Blend together some spinach, kale, and other nutritious veggies to create a yummy smoothie that’ll fill you up for the rest of the day.

White Bean Dip

The outstanding nutritious profile of white bean dip includes fiber, iron, protein, and deliciousness.

Additionally, it is entirely vegan, so everyone may eat it! For a nutritious, simple-to-make vegan snack, serve alongside pita chips.

One of the many advantages of being vegan is that most of the food you eat is healthy and nutritious, especially when made at home. Each of these snacks mentioned above are good for you, so you can snack on them without feeling guilty!
