We’re snack obsessed and love to share recipes! Snacks can be a very important part of your meal set up for the day. They can curb hunger and prevent you from over eating at your next meal. To help you stay fuller for longer, pair your carbs with protein. Here are some healthy and easy vegan snacks you can add to your snack rotation.
- Apple and peanut (or almond) butter. Slice apple into segments using an apple slicer. Put 2-3 tablespoons of your favorite nut butter in a bowl. We love Justin’s brand. Dip and enjoy! You could also take this up a notch and sprinkle cinnamon on your apple for added blood sugar balance.
- Veggies with hummus. Choose your favorite dipping veggie (cucumbers, carrots, bell peppers) and grab some hummus- we love the Ithaca brand! In addition to classics like plain and Fresh Lemon Dill, Ithaca comes in fun flavors like Buffalo Ranch and Everything bagel.
- Guacamole and chips. Guac is a great snack to have on hand! Full of healthy fats, it’ll leave you full for hours. We like these Sabra Singles for on the go snacking. Pair with some Siete tortilla chips and you are golden!
- Trail Mix. You can buy premade or make your own with ingredients you like! Most have nuts, seeds and something sweet. We like this cranberry, almond, cashew option from Orchard Valley Harvest. It is a good source a protein and healthy fats.
- Rice cakes and avocado. Sometimes you need a good crunch in your snack. This is where rice cakes come in! Rice cakes on their own will leave you hungry soon after eating, but the addition of smashed avocado will keep you full all afternoon long.
- Popcorn. Popcorn is a great snack option! Two cups of popcorn provide you with whole grains and 16 grams of fiber that keep you full and energized. We like popping your own vs microwavable bags. Or get single-serving bags of Boom Chicka Pop.
- Dates stuffed with peanut butter, dipped in chocolate. Who likes Snickers but does not want all that added sugar? We have a solution for you: Cut Mejdool dates lengthwise, take the pit out, stuff with peanut butter and dip in melted vegan chocolate. Now you have an afternoon treat without the guilt!
- Chia seed pudding. Chia seed pudding is a great way to get some fiber and protein into a snack. Take 4 tablespoons of chia seeds, 1 cup of plant based milk, and ¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract and mix in mason jar or bowl. Give it a stir and let sit in the fridge 1-2 hours or overnight to set. Top with favorite fruit for an even more fiber rich treat!
- Coconut yogurt with granola and fruit. Coconut yogurt has the same texture as regular yogurt without the dairy! Combine with some Purely Elizabeth granola and your favorite fruit.
- Edamame with salt. Edamame is a good source of plant protein! 1 cups offers about 17 grams. Dip in some low sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos and enjoy!
- Bars. Bars can be an easy, on the go snack. Some of our favorites are Kind, Aloha, Larabars, RX bars and GoMacro bars!
- Peanut butter banana bites. Slice bananas into quarter inch pieces. Smear peanut butter or any nut butter on every other piece. Place two pieces together and freeze on parchment paper for at least 30 minutes.
- Ants on a log. What a classic snack! Take some celery and spread some peanut butter or any nut butter length wise. Top with some raisins and enjoy!
- Energy bites. Energy bites are perfect for a sweet afternoon craving! Check out the recipe for peanut butter protein bites that’s on our blog. Also on our blog: no bake peanut butter chocolate bars.
