Who has time to make every one of their snacks from scratch? Not us, so we went on a vegan snack seeking mission to find a few tasty nibbles to keep in our pantry for those daily snack attacks. Here are five yummy vegan snack finds.
5 Yummy vegan snack finds
For that daily chocolate craving, take a bite out of these organic, artisan European-style cookies. Made with einkorn, nature’s original species of wheat, these cocoa cookies are the perfect partner for soy milk, coffee, or your favorite tea. You can also feel good about serving these vegan treats to your kids — each cookie is only 40 calories and is low in sugar.
If you can’t seem to break your candy bar habit, satisfy your sweet tooth with the Dark Angell Organic Candy Bar. A sophisticated vegan snack, this organic bar boasts dark chocolate, wrapped around a smooth cocoa center with organic almonds for a delectable crunch. Yum!
Raw food is the rage and these raw savory krackers will get your raves. Made of organic vegetables, walnuts, and a tasty array of seeds and spices, you may not be able to stop at a single serving. But considering their raw health value, Kookie Karma’s vegan snacks are one of the best vegan snacks for over-indulging.
Peanut butter is a frequent go-to when snack attacks arise, but at nearly 200 calories per (small) serving and 16 grams of fat, dipping into the jar can pack on the pounds. Just Great Stuff’s Powdered Peanut is a healthier alternative. Made with organic peanuts, coconut sugar (natural sweetener with a lower GI than sugar), and sea salt, one serving comes in at 45 calories and 2 grams of fat. Stir it into a smoothie, spread it on toast or crackers, or find your own way of putting this healthy vegan snack to work for you.
My favorite savory vegan snack is Somersaults crunchy litttle nuggets made of sunflower seeds, ground pepper, salt, and a touch of garlic and onion. Every serving delivers 6 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber, and a delish dose of vitamin E for only 150 calories. Other amazing flavors to munch include Pacific Sea Salt, Cinnamon Crunch, Dutch Cocoa, and Santa Fe Salsa.
