35 Healthy Vegan Snacks
Nut butter is a good source of healthy fat and a satisfying snack any time of day. You can add peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, or sunflower seed butter to warm toast, celery, apples, and more.
Fruit is one of the best vegan snacks there is.
Fruit is not only packed with fiber and nutrients, it has a lot of water too. Many types of fruit are 80 to 90% water.
That means you can fill up on fruit because it’s low calorie and hydrating. Fruit for the win!

You can put almost anything on top of sweet potato toast! For example, this recipe for avocado sweet potato toast is a perfect mid-morning or afternoon snack! Just leave the prosciutto off to make it vegan.
Kale chips are way more delicious than they sound and even though they’re easy to make, I suggest grabbing a healthy brand of pre-made kale chips as well. Pre-made kale chips are great to toss in your bag when you’re heading out for the day.
Nuts and seeds
Nuts and seeds are a good source of healthy fats. You can overeat these though, since we don’t need an unlimited amount of fat.
The individual packets are great for portion control. Individual packets of sunflower seeds are also a great option for on the go snacking.
Raw veggies are right there in the running with fruit for the winner of most healthy vegan snacks. They may seem boring but if you give yourself enough variety, they can actual be pretty enjoyable.

Sliced apples with some cinnamon powder sprinkled on top are also a delicious snack.

After that second stir, drop some fruit on top and cover your jar. Leave it in the refrigerator over night or for at least one hour if you want it right away.
