15 Best Vegan Snacks Everyone Will Love
Vegan snacks can be just as delicious!
The days of vegan snacks getting a bad rap are over — with both the quantity and quality expanding, following a vegan lifestyle is easier (and more delicious!) than you'd think. We rounded up some of our favorite vegan snacks, ranging from tortilla chips to cookies, but we always recommend checking the label for ingredients such as honey, gelatin or additives before diving in.
Your kids are likely familiar with the apple sauce that Gogo SqueeZ makes, but now you can add plant-based, almond blend pudding to their lunchboxes. Flavors include banana, chocolate or vanilla, or cocoa-hazelnut, and they are perfect for something sweet on the go.
Fruit snacks meet a burst of real fruits and vegetables in these cosmic chews. These were made with a mission to help impact climate change with guidance from chef Spike Mendelsohn and Seth Goldman (founder of Honest Tea). Get them in flavors like orange mango and apple cinnamon.
It can be hard to find a cookie sandwich that either doesn’t contain dairy or isn't made in a facility that also processes dairy. These new cookies from Simple Mills fit the bill. Cocoa on the outside with a delicious cashew butter center, you and the kids will want to keep a box in your pantry.
Finding cookie dough that tastes good and is also vegan can be a challenge. Luckily Sweet Loren’s has you covered. The cookie dough starts with a gluten free flour blend base and includes add-ins like chocolate chunks or cranberries. Pre-portioned dough can be eaten as is or baked into cookies.
While many other crispy treats use butter or gelatin, Blake’s version is completely vegan, gluten, dairy and nut-free making it a dream snack for everyone.

These banana chocolate chip bars will remind you of freshly baked banana bread, except they are certified vegan and perfect for on-the-go. Filled with fruits and veggies your kids won’t even notice and neither will you!
It might take a moment to register lentils as a snack that are as delicious as they are good for you. But once you do, you’ll be eating these guys non-stop. They are perfect as is or throw them into trail mix!
Pretzels made from root vegetables? Don’t be scared. These vegan and gluten free pretzels are made from sorghum flour and root vegetables and filled with maple almond butter to satisfy any sweet and salty craving. With a mission to change and improve our food system, you can snack and do good.
