30 Healthy Vegan Snack Recipes

These vegan snack recipes are ideal for serving up to friends, or nibbling on when you get the munchies!

By Lora O’Brien

‘Elevenses’ was the term they came up with to describe that grumbly tummy feeling you get around 11am. You know, a few hours after a quick breakfast of like, a banana and coffee, but two hours before your lunch break. You’re hungry and realise lunch is just around the corner, but if you don’t eat something right now, you’re going to be a full-on grump until you get your mid-day meal.

Or maybe your slump happens after lunch: you’ve been in the office all day, and know you’ll never get out of there on time. Which means dinner seems very far away indeed…

It’s not just us, either: kids get hungry between meals too. Unfortunately, no matter what the age, the easiest snacks to go for are often pure crap. Yeah, I said it. Most chocolate bars, bags of chips/crisps/whatever you want to call them (depending on your accent and continent), packaged cakes (or anything that comes wrapped, in fact) barely even qualifies as ‘food.’

It’s time to take control over our own health and make our own damn vegan snack recipes at home.

Whether you like your snacks sweet or savoury, low GI or gluten free or a combination of all of these, there’s surely something for you below. They’re perfect for cravings, for parties, for kids…you name it!

Some of them can even be combined: think crackers with hummus, apple slices with chocolate dip, and so on. But mainly, I just selected these healthy vegan snack recipes because they all taste amazing!

30 Healthy Vegan Snack Recipes

1. Cheesy Vegan Homemade Kale Chips

It’s a fact that vegans don’t get enough vitamin B12. There are some great solutions to that problem. For example, you could take a powerful supplement like Wellab’s vitamin B12 drops. Just 2 drops a day will prevent anemia, boost your energy, and allow for quicker absorption of energy from food.

But if you’ve forgotten to take your drops, this crispy, cheesy vegan kale chips recipe features loads of nutritional yeast, which is also rich in vitamin B12.

2. Baked Cauliflower Hot Wings

Spicy, savoury and hot, these vegan ‘wings’ are the perfect snack! Serve them up with a creamy vegan dip and some other stuff that you could dip inside, like crudites or pita chips.

3. Chipotle & Lime Oven-Baked Tortilla Chips

If you don’t already know of the delight that is baked tortilla chips dunked into a (healthy) dip, you’ve got to take note and try this recipe. Whether you like a chunky bean dip or a fancy-pants salsa, this is a perfect snack to serve up when having guests around.

4. Zucchini Hummus

Hummus has been around for a zillion years in the Middle East, but recently it’s been getting a lot of good press in the West as the perfect snack to have on hand in your fridge. Whether you scoop some gluten-free crackers or vegetable crudites in it, layer it on some rye bread or mix it into a salad, it’s versatile and has a great flavour. That being said, not everyone is a fan of chickpeas. I know, hard to believe, right? But that’s okay, because this recipe replaces chickpeas with zucchini, and leaves you with a silky smooth dip.

5. Beetroot Hummus

How stunning does this look? There’s something about bright, vibrant food that just appeals to my taste buds. This beetroot hummus is another variation of the traditional recipe. Eating the same foods can become repetitive and dull, so it’s always good to have different  ways of enjoying something you love.

6. Black Bean & Lime Dip

Unsure what to do with a spare can of black beans? Make this dip of course! It’s super high in protein, too, making this a perfect snack to whip up  before or after you’ve hit the gym. Goes great with crudites, crackers or of course…tortilla chips. Arriba!

7. Double Dipped Chocolate Frozen Bananas

Prefer sweet vegan snack recipes? This one’s for you! Freezing your ‘nana’s to create smoothies and ice cream is a trend that has been increasingly popular within the health community, but how about making these banana popsicles? Dipping them in chocolate allows you to add some crushed nuts and vegan chocolate chips to give them a little bit of a crunch.

8. Maple Candied Pecans

These crunchy pecans are made sweet from maple syrup and a little sea salt to give it that heavenly sweet/salty combo. Make a batch of these and store them in a lock tight jar and snack on a handful when that sugar craving strikes!

9. The Best Ever Vegan Popcorn

The chefs from hot for food are geniuses  when it comes to whipping up vegan recipes that mirror non-vegan comfort foods, so this popcorn recipe should be jotted down. You can even tweak it slightly if you want more savoury popcorn – add some garlic or onion powder. Want it a little sweeter? Drizzle some maple syrup on it.

10. Cajun Roasted Chickpeas

If you’re in the mood for one of the more spicy vegan snack recipes, then these Cajun chickpeas are a great option. When roasted, chickpeas go all hard and crunchy. The spices pack them full of flavour, making them a healthy yet tasty snack for any time of day. They’re also great on salads!

14. Vegan Tartines

Bruschetta? A bit messy. Sandwiches? Yawn. Vegan tartines are one of the best – and easiest – vegan snack recipes to serve up to a crowd! This recipe involves tomato, eggplant and Med flavours, but frankly, you could add in whatever veggies you like, from mushrooms to cooked spinach.

18. Vegan Baguette Pizzas

Ok, so there’s no recipe for this one. But do you really need one? All you need to do to make vegan baguette pizzas is get some baguettes and your favourite tomato sauce. Cut the baguettes in half, and slather the sauce on them. Top with vegan cheese, slices of Beyond Meat sausage, olives, fried onions…whatever takes your fancy! Pop it all in the oven, and when it’s all crunchy and melty, take it out, and top it off with some fresh basil and a drizzle of olive oil.

19. Oatmeal & Raisin Cookies

Sometimes the only thing that will do with a hot mug of tea or coffee is a delicious cookie. These oatmeal and raisin cookies are the perfect recipe to whip up and have on hand, and they’re much healthier than the commercial cookies you’d find in supermarkets.

20. Strawberry Oat Squares

Another recipe from Angela Liddon of Oh She Glows, but sorry – that girl knows how to bake! These strawberry oat squares with homemade jam not only look mouth-wateringly good, but they’re also healthy, too, making these the perfect go-to snack when you’re in need of something sweet and tasty. Plus, who doesn’t look anything with strawberries in it?

21. Cauliflower Popcorn

What??! Is there anything this vegetable cannot do? With the help of a dehydrator (or just baking them really, really slowly for a long time), the white veg actually gets crunchy, and the spicy topping makes it moreish.

22. Banh Mi Vegan Sliders

Snack-sized Vietnamese vegan food doesn’t get any better than this! Tofu forms the ‘burger’ in these trendy sliders, while sriracha sauce adds some heat.

23. Oven Avocado Fries

Crunchy on the outside, creamy on the inside…is it any wonder one of my favourite vegan snack recipes is baked avocado fries?

24. Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet potatoes hold so many beneficial properties for the body: mainly, they contain fibre, beta carotene, and vitamin D which of course plays a huge role in our energy levels and moods. If you’re feeling tired and suffering dizzy spells, you could be short on potassium – and guess what has plenty of that? Yep, sweet potatoes! Plus these taste way better than fast food fries.

25. Dukkah Sprinkled Chickpea Crackers

Crackers are another go-to snack that you should keep on hand. You can use them to dip into soup for a little-added texture, smear them with vegan cashew cheese or almond butter or simply eat them on their own. They’re easy to dress up, and just as enjoyable dressed down. Make some on a Sunday and store them to enjoy during the week.

26. Dill & Cucumber Crisps with Avocado Dip

These cracker/crisps are insanely tasty. Who doesn’t enjoy the taste of dill? This recipe is raw and features cucumbers as the main ingredient. They’re a little time consuming due to having to dehydrate them, (either in a dehydrator or by slow cooking them in an oven) but the (very low calorie!) result is more than worth it.

27. Easy Guacamole

Tangy lime. Smooth avocado. Juicy tomato. What’s not to love about a super healthy, super chunky, good ol’ guac? This is one of my favourite things ever to eat in Mexico – especially with those super-coarse tortillas made from traditionally grown, ancient Mexican maize…

28. Easy Gluten-Free Crackers

It’s sometimes not easy to snack when you’re gluten-free. Everything from sandwiches and pizza to crackers and commercial granola bars will sometimes contain it. So why not make a batch of these easy, crispy crackers for yourself? Perfect with any of the dips above, or as I like to eat them: in soup.

29. Popcorn Trail Mix

Yep, here it is again. Popcorn. At home, I have an air popper, and boy do I use it! It creates the best crunchy, crispy popcorn with zero oil (you can find one online pretty easily). This trail mix will appeal to those who like their snacks sweet, not savoury, as it features a bit of dried fruit and cinnamon.

30. Vegan Nut Bars

Feeling like you need a protein fix? These vegan nut bars are the perfect snack! Pack them with almonds, peanuts and walnuts to ensure you get an array of different vitamins and minerals. This is one of my favourite healthy vegan snack recipes for kid’s lunch boxes, too.
