When life gets busy, it’s easy to reach for junk. And if you’re transitioning to a whole food plant-based diet, you may need some guidance on healthy vegan snack foods. Good news: there are plenty of delicious plant-based snacks to keep you plant-based strong when hunger strikes. We’ve gathered some of our favorite snack ideas, whether you’re looking for something to eat on the go or when you’re relaxing at home.
Ready in 3 minutes and found in the frozen section of your grocery store, these tasty little soy beans can be dressed up with a little salt if you can have it, your favorite spices (no-salt cajun seasoning is excellent), or just enjoyed as is.
Stressed about the sugar content of fruit? You don’t have to be! Unlike refined sugar treats, whole fruit has its fiber and nutrients in tact; fiber helps your body digest that sugar slowly, which keeps your blood sugars in check. So eat fruit freely and often. Some of our favorite fruits to snack on:
What’s better than delicious vegan cornbread? Delicious vegan cornbread that you don’t have to cook yourself! Our ready-made cornbread can be enjoyed heated up or cold and topped with your favorite refined sugar-free jam, apple butter, nut butter, or cashew cream cheese.
Busy professionals and plant-based athletes alike love these vegan coconut energy balls. These bites are sweet enough to satisfy your sweet tooth and nutrient-dense to keep you plant strong and powered through whatever the day has in store.
Need that satisfying crunch? Enter MamaSezz granola! Our refined sugar-free granola provides the perfect grab-and-go solution for your crunchy desires.
Your preschool teachers were onto something with this plant snack! Celery and natural peanut butter is a great way to stay full all afternoon -- thanks to all its fiber and plant-based protein.
You can grab some at the store (just look for no salt, no oil, no refined sugar) or make this sweet and savory plant-based trail mix at home.
A tasty dessert or snack that’s easy to make? Sign us up! Peanut butter stuffed dates are delicious and take a minute to make. All you have to do: remove pits from dates and slice a slit in (keeping date in tact rather than cutting all the way in half) and add a little bit of peanut butter.
If you don’t have heart disease, a handful of raw nuts can be a great way to curb cravings and fuel yourself between meals. When it comes to nutrition, walnuts are king in the nut world. They’ve got the highest amount of antioxidants, compared to other nuts. Other good nuts for snacking include raw cashews and raw almonds.
Prefer savory snacks? Avocado toast can be dressed up or simple, and always delicious. Keep it simple: Smash a ripe avocado, add a little fresh lime or lemon juice, and spread over a toasted piece of your favorite WFPB bread.
Follow this roasted chickpea recipe from Dreena Burton for a quick and savory healthy snack that’s easy to make at home. (Wnat to make it into a meal? Add some quinoa, baked and cubed sweet potato, and leafy greens for a delicious Buddha Bowl!)
Hummus is a great source of vegetarian protein and it’s so easy to make at home. With just five ingredients, you’ll be snacking in no time with this oil-free hummus recipe. Enjoy this savory snack with your favorite raw veggies, smeared on toast with avocado, in your favorite plant-based sandwich.
When it comes to vegan cheese, it’s better to skip the prepackaged stuff as those are typically much more processed than the stuff you can make at home. If you’re intimidated by the idea of making a vegan cheese, you’re not alone! But I’m here to tell you it’s actually really easy! This 5-ingredient cashew cream cheese recipe is made in your blender and can be enjoyed right away. Plus, it’s super versatile -- smear on MamaSezz ready-made vegan cornbread, use as vegetable dip with raw broccoli, peppers, and carrots.
Smoothies aren’t just for breakfast. They make a great vegan snack or dessert, too! This Antioxidant Blueberry Smoothie is naturally sweet and will power you through your to-do list. Make it a smoothie bowl by pouring your smoothie in your favorite bowl and topping with banana slices, coconut flakes, chia seeds, almonds, and MamaSezz refined sugar-free granola.
Make a batch of this crowd-pleasing dip to have on hand throughout the week for a quick snack. You can make your own oil-free tortilla chips or enjoy with raw veggies, like celery and carrot sticks and broccoli and cauliflower florets.
