Easy Vegan Snacks for a Quick Hunger Fix
Though most people understand vegan diets to be difficult, there are plenty of options to ensure they're really not. All of the below are great snacking foods for vegans, and-bonus!-some of them are gluten-free as well. Of course, packaging facilities and recipes vary, so be sure to read all the ingredients on a snack before diving right in.
Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups - Justin's$23.88BUY NOWIf you were to call these super rich bites "healthy," it wouldn't be so far of a stretch. The fact that they are (1) vegan, (2) made with organic peanut butter, and (3) covered in Rainforest Alliance-certified chocolate doesn't hurt either.
Biena Roasted Chickpea Snacks, Sea Salt - Biena$4.59BUY NOWProtein- and fiber-packed and delicious-not a bad thing to shovel into your face by the handful.
Pizootz Flavor Infused Premium Virginia Artisan Peanuts - BUY NOW $6.49, cvs.comPeanuts (and all nuts, really) are an excellent, filling snack for vegans, but you don't need to resign yourself to eating flavorless ones. These come in four flavors: baja taco, sea salt and cracked pepper, inferno, and habanero.
Soft Pretzel Bites - Pretzilla$6.29BUY NOWYou might suspect what makes soft pretzels delicious (butter, for one) would mean they're not delicious without it. Au contraire, my friend. These are great. And are there three more beautiful words in the English language than "salt packet included?"
Organic Chewy Granola Bars, Oatmeal Raisin - Annie's$5.44BUY NOWA lot of things Annie's makes are either gluten-free or vegan-these fall into the latter category. A solid breakfast choice, TBH.
Soft Serve Fruit Pop, Strawberry - Chloe's$7.98BUY NOWSuck it, ice cream. We don't need you after all.
Bac'n Pieces, Bacon Flavored Bits - McCormick$3.00Shop NowYes! I know you wouldn't think bacon bits would be vegan, and I know you wouldn't believe me when I tell you they are, and I know you don't think bac'n pieces qualify as a snack in and of themselves, but...they are! And they are! And they are!!!
Swedish Fish Candy - $19.50BUY NOWYup. All good to go here.
Blueberry Breakfast Biscuits - BelVita$2.50BUY NOWBelVita makes a bunch of vegan-friendly biscuit-y options, but these are a good place to start. The blueberry flavor is just *chef's kiss.*
Excellence Bar, 85% Cocoa Extra Dark Chocolate - Lindt$26.99BUY NOWThe higher the cocoa percentage, the less you have to worry about whether or not you're eating vegan. To be safe, start super high (in the 70s, 80s, or even 90s). Enjoy!
Crunch Dried Veggies - Sensible Foods$15.99BUY NOWVegetables? For a vegan diet? Ground-breaking.
Brussel Sprouts Puffs - Thrive$2.29BUY NOWCome on. You're at least a little bit curious about Brussels sprout puffs. You know you are.
Chocolate Chip Quinoa Cookies, 198G - GoGo Quinoa6.99BUY NOWAgain, nothing to worry about in the realm of the chocolate (it's dark! You're good!), nor is gluten an issue, if you're avoiding that, too.
Garlic & Herb Pita Chips - 365 Everyday Value2.99BUY NOWJust about anything that comes from 365 Everyday Value is delicious, these pita chips being no exception.
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus - SabraBUY NOWWhat else are you going to dip your pita chips in?
