Plenty of adults may remember eating a similar treat on the bus to and from school! Nature’s Bakery fig bars ($5 for box of 12) are vegan and dairy-free handhelds ideal for your midday snack attack. There’s a GF version, too.
Most nut butters, of course, should be vegan by nature, but it’s always best to check the label. We like Earth Balance peanut butter ($5 per jar), which combines the protein punch you expect from peanuts with the added nutritional value of flaxseed. Peanut butter is a wholesome snack scooped with apple slices, but we won’t tell anyone if you eat it with a spoon. (Can’t eat nuts? Try these allergy-free treats.)
Sweet, chewy fruit snacks are a kid-friendly option for snacking on the go. Annie’s fruit snacks ($15 for 24 pouches) will help the kids and their friends hop from one activity to the next without stopping. They’re also organic, and made without high fructose corn syrup.
Trail mix is a classic vegan-friendly snack, and no wonder: It’s got sweet and savory, protein and carbs, crunch and chew. Prana Go Nuts organic trail mix ($47 for 8 bags) includes nuts roasted with real maple syrup. Pack it for a hike, or chow down before the big game.
Sometimes we all crave a salty, crunchy snack, but many of these don’t accommodate dietary restrictions. Not so for Hippeas organic chickpea puffs ($20 for 12 bags), which are certified vegan and gluten-free, and come in popular flavors like barbecue and sriracha.
There are a lot of cracker options in the snack aisle, but you have to look a little harder for a cracker that’s actually healthy. Crunchmaster snack crackers ($3 per bag) offer a vegan and gluten-free snacking option that also provides 5g of protein per serving. Pair with vegan peanut butter for a satisfying protein punch.
For athletes, runners and weekend warriors alike, protein bars are a great option for quick refueling. But protein bars can be tough for vegan diets, as they often contain dairy or other animal byproducts. Enter the GoMacro MacroBar ($24 for 12 bars), which boasts 11g of protein and comes in a peanut butter and chocolate chip flavor.
Less healthy snack and more tasty treat, Wholesome’s DelishFish ($3 per bag) nod to dietary restrictions. They contain no high fructose corn syrup or artificial dyes, and are certified vegan and gluten-free. This is the ideal snack for a relaxing night in, so grab a handful while watching a movie.
Being vegan doesn’t mean you have to give up savory meat flavor. Meat substitutes have come a long way recently, and Louisville Vegan Jerky’s maple bacon jerky ($8 per bag) is tasty enough to please even meat eaters. Made with tamari and sriracha, the jerky delivers a sweet and smoky meatiness for a great car snack without the guilt.
Who doesn’t love a salty chip now and then? For a healthier take on potato chips, try Flourish Harvest Kale veggie crisps ($18 for 24 bags). They’re packed with vegetables, including kale and Brussels sprouts, plus protein-rich chickpeas. They’re popped rather than fried, so they’re extra crunchy and not greasy. Still hungry? Try these vegan cabbage recipes.
Sea salt caramel is having a moment, with everything from candy bars to ice cream rippled with caramel flavor. Sadly, most caramel contains dairy. These Cocomels caramels ($6 per pack) are made with coconut milk instead. They’re certified vegan and dairy-free, and have less sugar than other candies.
