Easy Snack Recipes without Dairy
I’m all about nourishing snacks to keep you energized throughout the day, so I wanted to shared some of my favorites with you!
Some of the dairy free snack ideas below use dairy free alternatives, and some don’t use any dairy-related products at all. Either way, they’re flavor-packed and sure to please. 🙂
No Bake Dairy Free Snacks
Not in the mood to turn on your oven? These no bake snacks are all dairy free, easy to make, and totally delicious! From no bake protein bites to chia pudding, granola bars, and beyond, there’s something for everyone here.
These little protein balls are packed with tons of wholesome ingredients, including peanut butter, chia seeds, dried cranberries, oats, and lots more.
They’re flavorful, simple to make, and don’t require any cooking. Plus, they’re super portable, so you can easily take them with you on the go!
This sweet and savory combination makes a perfect afternoon snack or quick breakfast! Top your favorite toasted bread with sliced strawberries, mashed avocado, and balsamic drizzle.
This easy snack comes together in minutes, and is great for those who love a savory-sweet combo. Try it with sliced peaches, too – it’s just as delicious.
Chia pudding is a nutritious make ahead snack that tastes like dessert (but is naturally sweetened with maple syrup or honey)! This mango chia pudding is made with coconut milk, so it’s super creamy and also dairy free.
I love it topped with extra mango, strawberries, and coconut flakes, but you can add your favorite toppings!
These vanilla fig protein bites taste like Fig Newtons, but they’re a homemade version without added sugar!
Lightly sweet dried figs, ground flax, walnuts, and almonds come together with a hint of vanilla flavor. All you need to make these is a food processor – no baking needed. A friend made these recently for a party and threw them together in 5 minutes flat while we were all hanging out!
This flavor combination may seem a little different, but these no bake granola bars are the perfect blend of sweet and savory.
Curry powder and peanut butter pair so well with the sweetness of honey, coconut, and dried mango. Crispy puffed rice, oats, nuts, and seeds add protein and crunchiness to make these snack bars extra satisfying!
Chocolate lovers, this one’s for you! These chocolate bliss balls taste like dessert, but are packed with wholesome ingredients like cashews, dates, and coconut.
They’re the perfect little snack to satisfy those chocolate cravings and keep you energized at the same time. Did I mention they’re dairy free, gluten free, and vegan?!
You don’t need dairy milk to make chia pudding super creamy! In fact, coconut milk is even better, with a thick and silky texture – plus a hint of coconut flavor.
This healthy coconut banana pudding is dairy free and gluten free, and it’s sweetened with mashed banana and pure maple syrup. Just prep it at night, and add your favorite toppings in the morning (like raspberries, shredded coconut, and banana).
It’s a delicious and filling breakfast or snack recipe!
Did you know spices like turmeric and ginger can boost your immune system? Plus, they’re tasty – especially in these no bake energy balls!
These snack bites are lightly sweet and nutty, with a bit of a kick from the ginger. Make a batch ahead of time and enjoy them all week long. Plus, they’re easily portable, so you can take them with you wherever you go.
I love a flavorful dip recipe, and this one is one of my favorites. I always describe it as “if hummus and guacamole mated”. It’s like hummus, but made with white beans, avocado, and lemon for a deliciously bright flavor.
Enjoy it with crunchy veggies like carrot sticks and bell pepper strips, or your favorite crackers! Either way, it’s an easy and healthy snack that’s perfect for any time of the day.
Baked Dairy Free Snacks
Whether you’re looking for cozy baked goods or a crispy savory snack, these baked snacks without dairy are all tasty and packed with nutrients!
These are the best fall muffins! Soft and moist apple muffins are topped with a cinnamon and brown sugar crumb topping, then baked to golden perfection. They’re studded with juicy bits of apple and perfectly sweetened.
Plus, there’s no butter or dairy, thanks to the apple sauce, coconut oil, and almond milk. These muffins are super cozy and nutrient-dense at the same time, and make a fabulous afternoon snack!
Crispy baked kale chips are a wonderful way to mix it up from regular chips. I know what you’re thinking if you haven’t tried kale chips before – seriously, kale that tastes like a chip? I promise you it gets crunchy and incredibly delicious!
This recipe includes four drool-worthy flavor variations to try: classic lemon garlic, Everything Bagel-seasoned, spicy nacho, and ranch-seasoned.
They’re easy to make on a sheet pan, and so satisfying when you’re craving something savory.
These oatmeal power bites are filled with tons of wholesome (and tasty) ingredients like walnuts, blueberries, banana, almond butter, and even a hidden veggie you won’t notice! They’re easy to prep ahead of time and the perfect snack to keep you nourished for hours.
Plus, these dairy free muffins are also vegan and gluten free, so everyone can enjoy them!
These peanut butter power cookies will satisfy your sweet tooth and savory cravings at the same time! They’re sweetened with pure maple syrup and raisins, and packed with goodness like oats, natural creamy peanut butter, ground flax, and almond flour.
These snack cookies are equally as delicious in the morning, afternoon, or as an after-dinner healthy treat. Be sure to make a double batch – they’ll be gone in no time. 🙂
Craving carrot cake but want something a bit lighter (and easier to make)? Try these vegan whole wheat carrot cake muffins!
Spices like cinnamon and nutmeg add a lovely warm flavor, and make these a perfect fall snack. It’s one of my favorite recipes from the early years of my blog!
If you crave all things apple during the fall season like I do, give these whole wheat apple cinnamon bars a try. They taste like spiced apple crisp, yet don’t have a ton of sugar.
Plus, not only are they packed with applesauce and chopped apples, but this recipe also features walnuts, raisins, cinnamon, and more!
It’s surprisingly easy to make granola bars at home, and these lightly sweet bars are no exception. They happen to be vegan and gluten free, and are sweetened with maple syrup and dried fruit (like raisins and dried cranberries).
You can easily switch up the fillings to whatever you like. Nuts, seeds, shredded coconut, chocolate chips – the options are limitless!
Whether you have more of a sweet tooth or are a savory snack lover (like me!), I hope you love these dairy free snacks. Enjoy. 🙂
