10 Easy To Make Healthy Vegan Snacks
I don’t know about you guys, but this lockdown is making seriously snack! With little else to do other than sit at my MacBook getting on with work, I find myself heading to the kitchen way more than usual to suss out what I can make. Since going vegan, I definitely feel like my snacking is much healthier (ok aside from the NOMO chocolate bars that I’m obsessed with) and I tend to think about my snacks in advance.
This extra time has definitely sparked a new enthusiasm for cooking and baking. Here are a roundup of 10 easy to make and healthy vegan snacks to enjoy during lockdown! Be sure to check out some of these fabulous websites for more recipe inspiration.
Turmeric protein balls
Turmeric is a fantastic natural anti-inflammatory and definitely a staple you should have in your cupboard! Date and nut balls have been a protein favourite of mine for a while and when I used to work in an office, would be my mid-morning choice of stuck. A great elevensies to enjoy with a cup of tea (or in my case, Pepsi Max) plus super easy to make.

Vegan salmon blinis
Bosh are one of my FAVE places for recipe inspiration, I love everything I’ve made from them. These vegan salmon blinis are perfect lunchtime snacks.
Wagamama introduced me to the wonder of edamame and I never looked back. This is SO easy to make. Swap the parmesan for vegan parmesan (my favourite is the Violife) and you’re good to go. I could eat this all day long.
Baked grain free falafel bites
Falafel and hummus is one of my favourite easygoing snacks. These grain-free falafel bites look amazing as either a snack on their own, in a pitta bread, or perhaps as a salad topper.

It wouldn’t be a vegan snack list without a delicious homemade hummus! Having hummus in the fridge is a vegan staple, and I tend to eat with pretty much anything. If I want a super quick snack, I’ll just chop up some carrots and bell peppers and enjoy.
Easy vegan quesadillas
I love Mexican food, and regularly batch make chillis to enjoy with a little vegan cheese. These quesadillas are a Mediterranean take on quesadillas and they sound AMAZING. Definitely trying these out soon.

These breakfast muffins made with muesli and pecans are perfect for morning snacks, and can also be batch made and frozen too! Enjoy warm with a little spread of vegan butter. YUM!

If baking isn’t your thing, you can’t go too wrong with this no bake recipe. How delicious do they look?! Minimal ingredients too, just how I like it!

Balsamic glazed roasted cauliflower
I never realised the true potential of the humble cauliflower until I experimented with cauliflower steaks and sticky wings. Gamechangers!! Loving this balsamic glazed roasted cauliflower, super simple and healthy. Serve with a tonne of green veggies for a light lunch.
