Are you a snack junkie? If so these vegan snack recipes could just save your life or at least they can keep your vegan lifestyle on track and therefore save someone else's life! These and others like them sure did this for me because (confession time) I am a snackaholic! I snack way more than I eat true meals and when I was going vegan it was hard to see what vegan snacks would satisfy in the same way the things I was used to eating did. Well, let me tell you the following vegan snacks did the trick for me and my kid. Let us know how these work out for you.
OMG best snack ever! These can easily replace chips and you'll never miss them! One of the great things about this vegan snack recipe is how versatile it is. You can literally spice these little nutritional powerhouses up in any way you like. Give them a little dash of cayenne pepper if you like things spicy. Use Italian seasoning or taco seasoning... the sky is literally the limit. This recipe from the Steamy Kitchen uses creole seasoning!
NOTE: As vegan snack recipes go this is one of the easiest you'll ever find BUT it is easy to over cook these so keep an eye on them and pull them out of the oven when they seem a little too soft because they harden as they cool. If you overcook them they are still tasty but are VERY hard and crunchy. The overcooked ones become EXCELLENT doggie treats 🙂

Who doesn't like crispy fries? And though these little beauties fall nicely into our category here of "snacks" they can easily be considered a "side" as well. And if you are a fry fanatic like I am heck... why not just go all out and make them the main course? LOL Seriously though, once you master the knack of making your sweet potato fries CRISPY (and we can't thank The Vegan 8 enough for teaching us how to do this!) we bet you'll be as addicted to them as much we are. PS. this dipping sauce is to die for as well. Just sayin...
We love us some cauliflower bites, yes we do, but making them can be a huge pain. Seriously, breading all those little bits is a big job. That's what we LOVE about this vegan shack recipe from our pals over at VeggieInspiredJourney. They are not breaded! Yet you can see from that photo that they are still deliciously crispy. The secret is tossing them in BREADCRUMBS! On top of everything else these are baked NOT fried so they are healthy and delicious! As a bonus you won't want to miss out on learning how to make this easy vegan ranch dip either! YumYum!
These are the first crackers of my very own that I have ever even thought about trying to make. And I have to say they are pretty easy. In fact, they are stupid simple to make LOL. No clue why it took me so long to give crackers a try but all I have to say is Keebler watch out we vegans don't need you any more! THANKS ElephantasticVegan for turning us onto these. Truth is I'm so hooked on these little beauties now I'm gonna have to try making them with veggies other than or in addition to spinach. I'm thinking carrot or beet would be pretty and yummy. What do ya'll think?
Think making fudge is hard? Think making vegan fudge is all but impossible? HA! Better think again especially with the secret weapon Trinity's Kitchen turned us onto with this blueberry lemon fudge recipe... Creamed Coconut! Yes, with this stuff making your own fudge is so easy your kids will be able to do it. Double Win!
Note: This fudge needs to be kept in the fridge or freezer but should be fine at room temperature for a few hours unless it is HOT in your house. When serving for guests, just keep an eye on it and if it looks like it's getting droopy, pop it back in the fridge or freezer.
