Expert Tips and FAQs
Here’s some basic tips and tricks to making your vegan snacks last as long as your cravings:
Make them in bulk. Most of these easy vegan snacks will last at least a week if stored properly. Whip up a week’s worth of healthy snacks on the weekend and munch away!
Mix it up. Sometimes I get stuck in a rut and don’t want to make anything. Try a few different recipes every week and see what sticks. Some things you’ll want every day, and some you’ll want when fruit is fresh or, of course, pumpkin season.
Keep some on you. The worst part about hunger is it hits when you’re not home. I always keep a reusable baggie of energy bites or other vegan snacks in my purse or gym bag. That way, I can get some nutrients before I become a hangry Snickers commercial star.
Don’t forget dessert! Some of these sweet snacks have saved me on late nights when my brain thinks we NEED chocolate — like right now. The natural sweetness of dates and maple syrup can be yummier than any vegan ice cream, I swear.
