40 Vegan Snack Recipes

Vegan snacks can be as easy as store bought hummus and some carrot sticks.  But if you want something a little different – from on the go bars and bites to decadent donuts and healthy savoury nibbles – we’ve got you covered!

One of my weaknesses are snacks. Especially late afternoon right before dinner. I think it goes back to working split shifts and always eating around 3pm before going back to work for the night.  These days I blame blogging.  Writing up the posts and recipes usually happens in the afternoon.  And all this descriptive writing about food makes me hungry!  Enter the vegan snacks .. we’ve got:

  • Savoury snacks – nibbly nuts and chickpeas, a variety of hummus and even a kale recipe!
  • Muffins
  • Ice creams and ice lollies
  • Snack bars
  • Energy balls/bars
  • Cookies
  • Cakes and donuts

All vegan snacks and all worth making (and enjoying!)

Let’s jump right in with the vegan savoury snacks …

Herb Roasted Cashew Nuts – if you are looking for a nibbly snack for your next Netflix marathon these are perfect!  Full of flavour, healthy fats and so easy to make!

Well done if you made it this far! I hope you’ve found some inspiration or that I’ve proven just how out of the world easy and delicious vegan snacks really are! 🙂


Hello there!  I’m Sam, former Michelin star pastry chef and now your go-to vegan foodie on a mission to make plant-based eating a deliciously easy adventure!  From cozy comfort foods to vibrant salads and decadent desserts, there’s something for everyone in my kitchen.

Whether you’re cooking for one or for a houseful I believe food doesn’t have to be complicated to be full of FLAVOUR and I want to show you how.  I’ve been a rigorous meal planner for over a decade whilst embracing seasonal ingredients (because that’s where the real flavour is!)

I’m also a dedicated dog mum to Nooch and Baxter and enjoy cooking them homemade treats (many of which are posted here) when I’m not screaming at the tennis or devouring fantasy fiction.

All things autumn - warming soups, savoury bakes and delicious sweet treats!
