For all my vegan friends out there: here are some yummy, easy vegan snack ideas to make! I’ve created quite a few vegan recipes over the years, so I’m excited to share some of my favorites with you.
Even if you aren’t vegan, these vegan snacks are tasty and super easy. Many of these are even no-bake recipes, so you won’t even have to turn on your oven, and they are quick and easy as can be!
Easy Vegan Snack Ideas
Vegan & Gluten Free Granola Bars
I love making my own granola bars. It’s much easier than you might think, and you can put your favorite toppings inside. They’re also super portable for when you’re on the go (even if you’re just on the go around your house)!
This recipe uses almond butter, walnuts, and cranberries, but you can mix & match to your heart’s content – the recipe is flexible based on what you have on hand!
Zesty Lemon Zucchini Muffins
The keys to these zucchini muffins are the lemon juice and zest. They’re also made with whole wheat and stuffed with veggies — but you’d never know it. The bright lemon flavor is so delicious!
To make the muffins vegan, simply use non-dairy milk instead of cow’s milk. Almond milk, soy milk, or hemp milk would be my recommendations, but you do you!
Baked Kale Chips (4 Ways)
Baked kale chips are much easier to make than they might seem, and they’re oh so delicious! The perfect snack for when you’re craving something salty and crispy. Plus, I’ve included 4 different flavor varieties to choose from (like spicy nacho and everything bagel)!
Vegan Cinnamon Raisin Almond Snack Bites
These are super easy, quick, and delish. Perfect for snacking on the go!
The raisins hold all the ingredients together (without having to deal with the major stickiness of dates!), and the flavor blends beautifully with the almonds and cinnamon. No baking required!
Vegan Kale Artichoke Dip
This vegan kale and artichoke dip is rich, creamy, and savory – but without being heavy.
It’s perfect for entertaining, but there’s no rule that says you can’t make a batch just for you and/or your family, either! Enjoy with crusty bread and/or crunchy veggies – it makes a great filling afternoon or pre-dinner snack.
Watermelon Rosemary Popsicles
These watermelon popsicles with rosemary make a refreshing and fun summer snack, and an excellent post-run cool down treat!
Of course, they’re best for warm weather, but I firmly believe that popsicles can be enjoyed anytime. 🙂
Just a note that there is honey in these popsicles, which I know is up for debate in the vegan world. If you’d prefer, feel free to use pure maple syrup instead – the popsicles will be just as delicious!
Strawberry Avocado Toast with Balsamic Glaze
Strawberry balsamic avocado toast is the best sweet and savory combo! It’s got creamy avocado, with sweet sliced strawberries tossed in a tangy balsamic glaze. So quick and easy to make, but feels luxurious!
Vegan Strawberry Scones
There’s nothing quite like a freshly baked scone, and these do not disappoint.
These scones were kept vegan by using almond coconut milk in place of regular milk, and coconut oil in place of butter.
I also amped up the nutrition with whole wheat pastry flour. You won’t taste the difference, I promise! And the strawberries add a delicious berry flavor.
Vegan Chocolate Coconut Almond Snack Balls
These chocolate, coconut, and almond energy bites are perfect for a quick and easy snack when you want something that hits that sweet craving but that will also keep you satisfied.
They taste like Almond Joy candy bars, but are much more nutrient-dense. And they don’t require any baking!
To make sure they stay vegan, be sure to use dairy-free dark chocolate vs. milk chocolate in the recipe!
Mango Chia Pudding
This coconut mango chia pudding will make you feel like you’re on a tropical island. It’s totally vegan (as long as you use maple syrup as your sweetener), but made lusciously creamy thanks to the coconut milk. Plus, it only takes a few minutes to whip up – then just let it chill in the fridge for a few hours for a delicious pudding consistency!
Lemon Avocado Hummus Recipe
This refreshing avocado hummus with lemon is the perfect vegan dip! It’s the love child of hummus and guacamole (so basically a dream come true).
It goes great with both crackers and crunchy veggies like carrots and bell peppers. Or, spread it on your sandwich for a boost of healthy fat flavor!
Vegan Carrot Cake Muffins
This is one of my favorite muffin recipes ever.
They’re really moist and sweet, but without much added sugar. And they contain lots of nutritional power from the whole wheat pastry flour, walnuts, raisins, carrots, and applesauce. Yum!
Vanilla Protein Fig Bites
You just need 5 ingredients and a food processor for these tasty vanilla fig protein bites. They taste just like the Fig Newtons of your childhood, but they’re more nutritious and have no added sugar. It’s the best of both worlds!
Nut Butter Stuffed Dates Snack
These dates stuffed with nut butter are an easy vegan snack and actually one of my favorite snacks to eat mid-run (see also: How to Fuel a Long Run), but they are great for fueling your daily adventures, too. They’ll give you a boost of energy, plus they’re super quick to make!
Coconut Banana Chia Pudding
This comforting chia pudding is tasty enough to be a dessert, but healthy enough to be a snack (or breakfast)! Made with simple ingredients, it’s creamy and flavorful on its own – but you can easily add any topping your heart desires (like berries, chopped nuts, or a dollop of nut butter).
Spiced Baked Apple Chips
Spiced baked apple chips do take some time to bake, but the prep work is easy (and they’re so worth the wait!). Perfect for when you’re craving a crunchy snack that’s also a little sweet.
Vegan Peanut Butter Power Cookies (snack or healthy dessert!)
These healthy peanut butter power cookies are sweetened with pure maple syrup, so they’re sweet without being too sweet. They’re also gluten free (if you use GF certified oats) and vegan. A perfect snack or healthy dessert for peanut butter lovers!
Oh, and one more delicious vegan snack: Chocolate Bliss Balls with Cashews. You might also enjoy these high protein vegetarian snacks (no eggs)!
There you have it: my favorite easy vegan snack ideas. I hope you enjoy them – I know I have over the years! 🙂
