22 Ways To Get Your Vegan Snack Attack On

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on February 22, 2012

It must be snacking season because I’ve had a lot of emails lately asking for some healthy vegan snack ideas and I thought it was a great idea for a post. Many of the recipes below are also some of the most popular snack recipes of 2011, so I will also add this post to my Top Recipes of 2011 page for easy reference.

Ready to get your vegan snack attack on?

1. Endurance Crackers

My all-time favourite cracker and quite possibly one of the top 3 recipes so far in 2012.  Endurance Crackers are extremely light and crispy while providing long-lasting energy. They are also vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free, sugar-free, and oil-free to boot. Feel free to change up the seasonings and spices as you wish (see the comments in the original post for some ideas) and serve with protein-packed hummus for a snack that will fuel you for the long haul. Man, I wish I had some right now!



2. Flu Buster Creamsicle Smoothie

Enjoy this ultra-creamy, thick, and energizing smoothie, with a hint of orange that will help keep those cold bugs at bay!



3. Chocolate Cake Batter Smoothie

Love dipping your finger into a bowl of cake batter? I hear ya. Now the cake batter flavour we know and love is in smoothie form so you can slurp away to your hearts content.



3. Salt & Vinegar Chickpeas

Just like my favourite salt and vinegar chips, but better. Enjoy these protein-packed, crispy chickpeas without any processed ingredients and a fraction of the fat.



4. Easy Homemade Wheat Thins

Incredibly easy to make. Minimal ingredients. Best of all, they’re even better than the store bought version.



5. Healthy Strawberry Oat Squares

Growing up, I always loved strawberry nutri-grain bars. These are similar in taste, but with all natural ingredients and much less sugar.



6. Half the Calories, Double the Fun Almond Butter

Adapted from the lovely Heather, this almond butter is the best thing to pair with a juicy apple or drizzled over fruit. Or just spoon it straight from the jar…you’ll see what I mean.



7. The Hummus that Changed Everything

This is the homemade hummus that convinced me I can make a hummus as good as my favourite brands in the grocery store.



8. Lightened Up Granola

I’ve always loved granola, but I rarely buy it because it tends to have as much sugar in it as many decadent desserts. This is my lightened-up version with the least amount of sweetener necessary while still tasting like granola should.



9. Tropical Lemon Cranberry Coconut Chia Bars

Packed with chia seeds, dried cranberries, pistachios, and lemon, these bars are chewy, light, and tropical. I like to think of them as a tropical macaroon bar. They also make a perfect breakfast when you are running out the door!



10. Almond Butter Rice Crisp Treats

These Almond Butter Rice Crisp Treats are a gourmet version (read: no bake) of my beloved childhood rice crispie squares. Unlike the original, this recipe is made without marshmallows, but I promise you won’t miss them!

11. No Bake Protein Energy Bars

Simple. Delicious. Addictive. 8 grams of protein per bar. Meet the protein bars that carried us through miles and miles of walking throughout NYC! I added protein powder to rev up the protein in these bars, making sure they would give me lasting energy when out and about. I wasn’t really sure what they would taste like with 1/2 cup of protein powder, but I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome! Just make sure you use a pleasant tasting protein powder and you’ll be fine. I used an unsweetened rice protein powder (Garden of Life) which worked great as it doesn’t have a strong flavour.



12. Carrot Raisin Spice Muffins

Like carrot cake, but healthier. My favourite way to enjoy these muffins is slathered with Earth Balance or crumbled on top of a bowl of vegan overnight oats. Perfecto!



13. Cheezy Hummus

This is what you get when you combine my cashew cheeze dip and my favourite hummus. Pure bliss in a bowl.



14. Oil-Free Zucchini Walnut Raisin Loaf

A dense loaf, but not in a bad way. Whole grain spelt flour tends to make dense breads, but I just love the nutty flavour of spelt so I don’t mind. The walnuts, streusel, and raisins add just the right amount of sweetness and crunch and the zucchini gives moisture without needing any oil. You also can’t taste the zucchini at all, but you can see the pretty green flecks!



15. Rustic Chocolate Chip Banana Oat Cake

Two pictures…just because I love it that much.


Thanks to the ripe bananas, there is minimal sweetener and oil required in this snack cake.



16. Frosty No Bake Glo Cakes

Prep time is just 3 minutes for these healthy frozen treats. It doesn’t get much quicker than that!



17. My Favourite Guacamole

Amazing with corn chips, spread on a wrap, spooned on a salad, or enjoyed with a fork…



18. 5 Minute & 5-Ingredient Almond Butter Chews

These Almond Butter Chews couldn’t be easier and they make a light pre-workout snack for about 100 calories each. They take 5 minutes to whip up, use just 1 bowl, and do not require an oven. You could even make them gluten-free. I use the Nature’s Path Rice Crisp cereal that is Gluten-Free.



19. Healthy Chocolate Chia Pudding

I make this pudding when I want something indulgent tasting, but don’t feel like eating a ton of sugar. I love mixing carob powder and cocoa powder for a more complex chocolate flavour. The carob powder also adds a natural sweetness as an added bonus. If you don’t have carob, I suggest using a bit more cocoa powder and sweetener since it will be less sweet without the carob. Serve cold or heated up!



20. Banana Split Vegan Overnight Oats

A rich and indulgent banana split…now made healthier.



21. Blueberry Pie Chia Pudding

Last but not least, this is a recipe that I made over the weekend. It reminds me of blueberry pie, in chia seed pudding form.


Pretty isn’t it? You can enjoy this warm or chilled depending on your mood.

The crumbled Basic Oatmeal Square really took it over the top. It’s like an upside down blueberry pie.


22. On The Glow Basic Oatmeal Square

Think of this oatmeal square as basic baked oatmeal that can be dressed up any way you like. Each large square contains a tablespoon of flax and a teaspoon of chia seeds as well as 7 grams of fibre and 6 grams of protein. Feel free to add in nuts, dried fruit, chocolate, and other mix-ins as you desire.

I require the Flu Buster right now in my misery. I wish the Mr were home to make it for me so I didn’t need to move from the couch! HA! Thanks for the round up!


Joss @ Jocelyneatsfresh February 22, 2012 at 9:19 am

Lots of stuff to choose from! Yummy! I really like the looks of the cheesy hummus :D
Will these be in your book?


Angela (Oh She Glows) February 22, 2012 at 9:21 am

I’m hoping to have most of the recipes in my book new, but there will be some reader favs in there for sure :)


Jen Doyle February 22, 2012 at 1:19 pm

Yes don’t feel like you have to do mostly new! All your recipes would be nice to have in print… I don’t know how you could come up with even more!! But if anyone can its you! Honestly, 70% old, 30% new and I would buy it!!! I will be buying it for sure and recommending it to everyone!


[email protected] healthy helper blog! February 22, 2012 at 9:19 am

SOO many winners here! A few of my faves are the no bake glo cakes and the carrot raisin muffins! So easy to make and incredibly delicious! As are all your recipes :)


Kristy @ KristyRuns February 22, 2012 at 9:23 am

Oh my gosh, thank you so much for this! I think I’m going to make the chia pudding today! :)


Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat February 22, 2012 at 9:23 am

Oooooh great… now I’m STARVING! Lol – everything looks so fantastic Ange and thanks for highlighting some of these that I’d forgotten about – the Endurance Crackers in particular! I want to go home and bake now! ;)


Heather @ For the Love of Kale February 22, 2012 at 9:25 am

One word: YUM.


Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers February 22, 2012 at 9:26 am

Yum, everything looks wonderful! I am going to make the On The Glow Basic Oatmeal Square for sure! I love all your healthy recipes, thanks for posting this. I’ve been on a snack attack lately and I want to keep it healthy!!


Cara February 22, 2012 at 9:29 am

This is SO helpful, because each time I’ve tried going vegan, it’s BETWEEN meals I’ve been stumped. OK, I made a healthy vegan breakfast. OK, I have a delicious vegan dinner planned. But …. now what?! And it’s funny, because it’s not like I snack on hard-boiled eggs or cheese, I just — I guess I couldn’t think of ANYTHING healthy to eat, not just something vegan! :-) (Except for plain straight veggies. And I just have way too much of a sweet tooth to feel called to snack on them by themselves.)


Angela (Oh She Glows) February 22, 2012 at 11:50 am

I think a lot of us can relate to that. I hope this helps!


Jesse (OutToLunchCreations) February 22, 2012 at 9:30 am

My mouth is watering! I love how most of the snacks are healthy sweets, I also have a big sweet tooth.


Jessica February 22, 2012 at 9:31 am

Frosty No Bake Glo Cakes have rocked.my.world. Seriously.
So many other yummy snacks to try!


Tasha @ My Happy Balance February 22, 2012 at 9:35 am

*let the mouthwatering commense!*
Great post! I’m not a vegan but I still want to try all of these at some point (especially the one’s with chocolate involved :) )


Rachael @ Ready to Get Sweaty February 22, 2012 at 9:36 am

These ALL look delicious. I’ve been a vegetarian for 4 years now, but recently started cutting out all dairy and fish – so the timing of this post is perfect! I am definitely going to make something this weekend! Thanks :)


Grace - Love Your Healthy Life February 22, 2012 at 9:38 am

Mmmmmmmmm, I’m drooling…. : ) Thank you for putting these together in one place, Angela : )


Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table February 22, 2012 at 10:50 am

These all look so good! I just bought the ingredients to try your Endurance Bars. Can’t wait!

Roasted chickpeas are one of my favorite snacks. I like to do mine “Indian-style” with garam masala and a little coconut oil.


Jamie @ Thrifty Veggie Mama February 22, 2012 at 11:06 am

These all look fantastic! I want to make them all.


Georgina February 22, 2012 at 11:15 am

Wonderful snacks, Angela! Glad that you posted both savoury and sweet snacks. Yum! Do you have a possible date for your book’s release? I can’t wait!


Angela (Oh She Glows) February 22, 2012 at 12:30 pm

Thanks I hope you enjoy them!
Book release is scheduled for early 2014. My manuscript is due end of the year and then it takes a full year to finalize/print. seems like a long time but im sure it will go by fast like it always does!


alexis February 22, 2012 at 11:25 am

Hi Angela!!

I discovered your website/blog when searching for vegan/vegetarian recipes. I absolutely love it!!! I look forward to every new entry! I have searched around the website & recipes and just enjoy all of it. I do have a question, which I hope, isn’t silly. I have seen calorie counts for some recipes and some without. Is there somewhere that I can locate the calorie counts. I DO realize you are not a calorie counter and I am slowly tring to adapt to that life style too, it is a new mindset and I slowly am going that way but am in the process of losing weight and eating healthier so I thought I would ask!

Thanks so much for such great information and recipes!!!


Angela (Oh She Glows) February 22, 2012 at 3:58 pm

Hey Alexis, You are right that I don’t always post nutritional info. I basically calculate it if I think readers would be interested in the info (for example, if it’s a high protein snack or something like that). The tool I use is the free Nutrition Data website found here: http://nutritiondata.self.com/ Once you get the hang of it, it’s pretty easy to use, although I do have to manually enter in products many times.


Brigitte February 22, 2012 at 11:46 am

Yummmmm they all look so tasty! thank you for the wonderful recipes Angela!!! I love how you add the pictures of the before, during and after recipe (with the ingredients etc…)

Thanks again, you’re so inspiring!!


Grace @ Healthy Dreaming February 22, 2012 at 11:47 am

Thanks so much for these recommendations! I actually want to give up red meat this lent and need more ideas to become more vegetable/fruit based :)


Alex @ Raw Recovery February 22, 2012 at 11:50 am

I’m so glad you posted this because I definitely needed some good snack ideas!


Jenn from Much to My Delight February 22, 2012 at 11:51 am

This couldn’t have come at a better time. I keep waking up to see boxes of Twinkies and bags of Cheetos on my kitchen counter. My man needs an intervention, stat. Sucker won’t even know what hit him…


Angela (Oh She Glows) February 22, 2012 at 12:29 pm

heh goodluck :)


Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga February 22, 2012 at 12:27 pm

Ok I want everything on this post and thanks for the reminders on some of these gems I had forgotten about! The bars, the rice treats, the snack balls, the crackers and chickpeas, the smoothie…you’re making me hungry.

Hope you’re having a great day :)


Jenna Z February 22, 2012 at 12:29 pm

Roasted chickpeas are a favorite with me!! Yum!


Beth February 22, 2012 at 12:31 pm

Is it good or bad that I’ve made most of these? :)
I plan to make the endurance crackers this weekend! Keep up the great work!


Angela February 22, 2012 at 4:06 pm

heh definitely good! Hope you enjoy the crackers :)


Pauline from France February 22, 2012 at 12:47 pm

I have to be out of home a lot in the coming months, so this post will make my planning-ahead MUCH easier :)
Thank you a lot!
Your website is great! I am looking forward to reading your book…
Best wishes from Paris


Angela (Oh She Glows) February 22, 2012 at 3:53 pm

Thanks Pauline. Enjoy the recipes!


Anna @ The Guiltless Life February 22, 2012 at 12:50 pm

OK everything looks fabulous but it was hard for me to concentrate once I saw the Chocolate Cake Batter Smoothie…wow…


Blog is the New Black February 22, 2012 at 12:51 pm

Strawberry oat squares are calling my name!


Liz @ Tip Top Shape February 22, 2012 at 12:55 pm

Thank you for this post!! I had way too much fun looking through all of these recipes :D


Kris | iheartwellness.com February 22, 2012 at 12:55 pm

Its the dang strawberry oat squares that are killing me right now!! HUBBA HUBBA!!! I love snacking more than eating full meals ;) hehe



Hailey February 22, 2012 at 1:01 pm

I’m pretty sure this post will make vegan marathon training more doable for me! I’m doing pretty good, but I get sooooo hungry between meals the day or two after a long run. This should help hold me over. Perfect timing too, because in the next few weeks I’ll be up to the longest runs. I just tried the endurance crackers and the protein bars and despite the fact that my crackers came out WAY thicker than yours did, they’re still great snacks! I think my favorite are the oatmeal squares. Awesome breakfast for sure! Thank you for the awesome ideas. :-)


Angela February 22, 2012 at 4:03 pm

Glad to hear you are enjoying the snacks! Goodluck with your marathon training…you are tougher than I am! ;)


Hailey February 23, 2012 at 12:52 pm

Well you are wayyy faster than me (I’ve read some of your running posts)! Slow and steady for me. :-) But I seriously don’t think I could do it without your blog. I really am feeling better, more energy and focus, so much so that my boyfriend has been eating mostly vegan with me during the week! I’m so glad that I found your blog…and I’m sure you’ve heard this a million times before, but you really have helped me become a healthier person!! I don’t know if I’m glowing yet, but I’ll get there. :-)


Jennifer @ Sweetly Vegan February 22, 2012 at 1:01 pm

awesome! I have become a constant snacker being 30 weeks preggo and this is a great reminder of some other healthy snacks I can make at home so I don’t have to run over for a (non-vegan) pink berry! yum :)


Andrea @ Vegvacious February 22, 2012 at 1:04 pm

Some of these I’ve tried, some of them I definitely need to try!!! My all-time fave is definitely the rustic chocolate chip banana oat cake – the only problem is it ends up being a really big snack for just me!!!


Sabrina R February 22, 2012 at 1:07 pm

<3 Thanks for posting this!!! These all look delicious, I plan on making a few of these today :)


Jasper Naomi @ crunchylittlebites February 22, 2012 at 1:07 pm

you said that Eric prefers 3 square meals…but if he had to chose, which is his favorite snack of all of these?

dude…what if you had a little kitchen-nymph who’d keep your creative home filled with these snacks ALL of the time! no more glowbakery? open a GLOW snackery! :)


Angela (Oh She Glows) February 22, 2012 at 3:59 pm

I think his favs would be the Endurance crackers, banana chocolate cake, and the energy bars :)


Jasper @ crunchylittlebites February 22, 2012 at 4:31 pm

you must have had SUCH a a crazy amount of folks oggling those energy bars….THOSE are so cool..I remember when you published that post…right before your NYC trip (I’m so not a stalker : ) )


Christina Keenan February 22, 2012 at 1:10 pm

I have been reading your blog for years and this post has made me remember all over again why i love it so much! these are my favorite recipes!!!! I want to try them all over again!!!! :)


Angela February 22, 2012 at 4:02 pm

aw, thanks Christina!


Meg @ Sweet Twist February 22, 2012 at 1:15 pm

I want to make all of these!!

I just happen to have rotten bananas on hand for that oat cake.


[email protected] February 22, 2012 at 1:24 pm

Beautiful snacks Angela! I believe I will make the hummus. I too buy it from Costco. Can’t beat the price. But, there was a time that my husband and I always made it ourselves. I will give this recipe a try! I might just stir in some diced roasted red peppers. :)


Amanda February 22, 2012 at 1:26 pm

I can’t tell you how happy I am you posted this! I’ve been wanting some vegan snack ideas all in one place! Thank you, thank you, thank you :)


Karen February 22, 2012 at 1:29 pm

Love this post! I’m still coveting those endurance crackers, and am kicking myself for continuing to forget to buy your suggested seasoning. These will be made this weekend for sure!

I agree with some others who mentioned that it would be great to see some of your/our favorite recipes in print; it’s not necessary to create a book of entirely new recipes. Personally, I’d rather see the well-loved ones (like your roasted tomato soup!)


Angela February 22, 2012 at 4:01 pm

Thanks Karen. I agree that reader favs should be in the book. How many, I guess we’ll have to see, but it’s a great point you bring up. I do hope to cover a bit of that in my questionnaire that I’ll be sending out to those who signed up for the mailing list.


Amanda February 22, 2012 at 1:35 pm

This post is almost too much for me – I don’t even know where to begin! Guess I will just have to bookmark this page and work my way through all of your wonderful recipes. :)


Sarah February 22, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Thank you! I was just looking for something like this and here it is! I think I’ll be working my way through them all as well. You are part of the reason why my daughter likes things with flax and whole wheat – you should be proud!!!


Angela February 22, 2012 at 4:07 pm

Your daughter is so lucky to have her mom making her healthy snacks! You should be proud too :)


Gina @ Running to the Kitchen February 22, 2012 at 1:58 pm

I’ve made the flu buster smoothie and the chia pudding inspired me to make my own last week..both insanely delicious! I need to get on the other 20!


TeenyLittleSuperChef February 22, 2012 at 2:03 pm

Oh wow, I can’t decide which of these recipes looks the yummiest! I’ve already made quite a few of these, but I spotted a few that I hadn’t seen before and really need to try. Particularly the cranberry lemon coconut chia bars… holy crap those look tasty. Thanks for the round-up of awesome recipes to get your vegan on! Carnivores be damned, vegans have more fun :)


Caroline February 22, 2012 at 2:07 pm

I’m going to try those lemon chia bars!


StoriesAndSweetPotatoes February 22, 2012 at 2:59 pm

That “twice the fun” almond butter is my favorite thing to put on pancakes!


Annie @ Naturally Sweet Recipes February 22, 2012 at 3:12 pm

Every single one of those treats looks amazing. Thanks for sharing all the delicious recipes!


Willow February 22, 2012 at 3:40 pm

Delicious overload!!! These all sound so good, I don’t know where to begin. I want to try them all! I guess I’m especially intruiged by the no-bake protein bars. I’ve made similar in the past, but have only had so-so results. I’ll have to give your recipe a try, it looks great!


Angela February 22, 2012 at 4:09 pm

Let me know what you think of them if you end up making them!


hannah alehandra February 22, 2012 at 3:43 pm

I’ll take a #17 and a #22 please, that is.. If you aren’t too busy, ofcourse ;)


Angela February 22, 2012 at 4:08 pm

I def. can’t share the guac ;)


Laura Peill February 22, 2012 at 4:08 pm

Mmmmmm crackers! I was on a snack kick today too and whipped up some Quinoa Crackers. These endurance ones are on the hit list next! Thanks:)


alexis February 22, 2012 at 4:15 pm

Thanks you Angela for the Nutrition Data website. More importantly, thank YOU for such amazing receipes. I am making the Oatmeal Squares tonight.

Have a wonderful day.


Maita February 22, 2012 at 4:21 pm

Way to sneak in two #3-s :)
I’m a total grazer, so I’ll be making lots of these in the near future…


Angela (Oh She Glows) February 23, 2012 at 10:49 am

LOL whoops!!!


Laura February 22, 2012 at 4:32 pm

Wow! Which one to make first? Haha I am going to try those home-made wheat thins! I’m impressed with how easy they seem to make! Wonderful post! Thank you!!!


scissors and spice February 22, 2012 at 4:51 pm

Ooh! What an inspiring post!


Catalina @ Cake with Love February 22, 2012 at 5:20 pm

Great post with so many delicious snack ideas, I am going vegan for the Lent (my religion requires this) so I am getting very inspired by all this yummy snacks!


Amanda February 22, 2012 at 6:57 pm

These all look soo good–can’t wait to try ’em! This is making me incredibly excited for your cookbook!


Liz February 22, 2012 at 7:00 pm

I needed this so desperately so thank you!!

Also – thank you for your detailed posts about NYC. My boyfriend surprised me with a trip (and a proposal!!) there last weekend, and your posts were invaluable to make dinner and lunch decisions. :D Cafe Blossom was amazing!


Laura @mypurposefullife February 22, 2012 at 7:02 pm

Ohhhh man do I want to try every single one of these this instant. Your pictures have me drooling and ready to drop everything else at this moment (to get baking-and eating!) like no on else can. :) what a great idea for a post.


[email protected] healthymamainfo.com February 22, 2012 at 7:23 pm

Love all of them!


Jessica @ Hungrygems February 22, 2012 at 7:41 pm

It is impossible not to find something mouthwatering here! I even caught my boyfriend sneaking glances at the screen!


Angela @ Happy Fit Mama February 22, 2012 at 7:41 pm

I feel a snack attack coming on! The chocolate cake batter smoothie is my go-to for serious PMS chocolate cravings. Hits the spot all the time! Oh, and the double the fun almond butter didn’t stand a chance of surviving more than a day in my house. Seriously one of the greatest things I have ever had!


Celeste February 22, 2012 at 7:46 pm

Wow – they all sound wonderful! Thank you!


Deirdre @ Ladies Holiday February 22, 2012 at 8:53 pm

i can’t pick just one…but you’re right it is totally snacking season…must be the (lack of) light or something.


Sara Nickel February 22, 2012 at 9:16 pm

Thank you for the reminder of all the beautiful and tasty recipes you have given your readers over the past few years. While I am not vegan, I have loved your blog from the moment I started reading it and have tried many of your healthy recipes. People at work are always asking and commenting on what I’m eating when I make something from your blog. I know you are working hard on your new endeavors! Good luck!


Angela (Oh She Glows) February 23, 2012 at 10:49 am

Thank you Sara that means so much to me! Thanks for reading :)


ClaireRose77 February 22, 2012 at 9:35 pm

I’ve been making some not-so-healthy treats for my co workers.I told them I was going to suck them in with those and switch to healthy.I KNOW I’m going to make some of these tasty treats:-)cc


Susan February 22, 2012 at 10:14 pm

Hmmm – I suddenly feel like snacking! I just can’t decide what to make first :) I’m recently enamoured with your chia puddings and blueberries are one of my favorite foods so seems like a logical place to start. I also wanted to share that I recently took the plunge and made a green monster – I was very sceptical but it turned out to be delicious! Who knew? I’ve tried the blueberry banana one with both spinach and kale and liked them both. Also added wheatgrass powder which gives it a nutty, herby flavor that I like. I actually found myself looking forward to one for an afternoon snack today!


Jena February 22, 2012 at 10:34 pm

I just want to verify that in the salt and vinegar chickpea recipe it is calling for 3-4 cups of vinegar?!


Angela (Oh She Glows) February 23, 2012 at 10:48 am

yes that is correct! :)


Cristela Nunez February 22, 2012 at 11:14 pm

Everything looks so good!!! Can’t wait to try some of these recipes! <3


Kari @ bite-sized thoughts February 23, 2012 at 4:22 am

Oh wow. I now have one jump bookmark in my recipes folder :) What a great round up – I’m really impressed.


Varsha February 23, 2012 at 7:23 am

That’s one heck of a list! Love it all!
Would love to see it as a separate section in your cookbook – would be unique…


meghann February 23, 2012 at 7:31 am

Best post ever! I work at an odd little health/vitamin store inside of a drug store and reccomend your blog on a daily basis to our customers, ESPECIALLY those who have no idea where to start adding whole foods into their diet. You actually make it fun AND tasty :) thank you!


Sarah @ The Healthy Diva February 23, 2012 at 8:44 am

all these look so delicious…i especially love the endurance crackers…i’ve got a weakness for crunchy things


Keri February 23, 2012 at 8:55 am

With the onset of ANOTHER very snowy day in Colorado, I’m looking forward to some kitchen time. Can’t wait to try some of the new (to me) recipes, and enjoy my some of my favorites–like the strawberry oat bars!


Laura February 23, 2012 at 9:26 am

I love your top recipes of 2011 post – it’s so helpful and easy to reference. This is a great addition!


Sarah February 23, 2012 at 10:52 am

I’m going “nuts” over all these! Thank you Amy. I also am curious if I could make a ” half the calories m, double the fun ‘Walnut’ butter” in place of Almond? Have you tried?


Lindsay February 23, 2012 at 11:02 am

I’m making it my goal to make all of these in 2012! Thank you for sharing!


Dena @ 40 Fit in the Mitt February 23, 2012 at 1:22 pm

Thank-you for the great recipes! I can’t wait to make the hummus.


Laurel February 23, 2012 at 4:06 pm

Fantastic post! I can’t wait to try a bunch of these recipes. You rock.


Zoe February 23, 2012 at 5:57 pm

I love this post and want to make them all. Actually, I wish someone else would make them all for me over the next 22 days so i could just eat them ALL. Thank you for so many amazing ideas :-)


Alyssa February 23, 2012 at 6:37 pm

Yes, I will take one of each please!!!


Amy February 23, 2012 at 9:18 pm

I made the Endurance Crackers this weekend and they are AMAZING! I’ve been trying to keep myself from eating the entire batch at one time. This was also my introduction to Herabmare and now I’m hooked!


Angela (Oh She Glows) February 24, 2012 at 9:47 am

Glad to hear that Amy!


Jennifer @VeganPCOSGoddess February 23, 2012 at 9:35 pm

These all look so amazing and delicious, can’t wait to try several of them out! Shared the list with the readers on my blog tonight too. You’re inspiring me to want to get into the kitchen this weekend, thanks! :)


Angela (Oh She Glows) February 24, 2012 at 9:47 am

Thanks for sharing Jennifer! Let me know what you end up making this weekend…feel free to post a pic on my facebook page too!


Lorell July 13, 2012 at 11:10 pm

My kids love Nutri-Grain bars and I’ve been hoping to find a healthier recipe for them…thank you! Can’t wait to try them out!


Kathleen @ KatsHealthCorner February 23, 2012 at 10:42 pm

All of these sound DELICIOUS!!! :D


Stacey February 23, 2012 at 11:33 pm

mmmmm…. I can’t wait to make all the ones that I haven’t made already. I’m gonna be a baking mah-chine the next few days. nom. nom. nom.


Jen @ Life Starts February 24, 2012 at 1:37 am

I’m always looking for healthy snack ideas, especially as I’m on a new healthy eating plan, this was perfect, thank you!


Lexi @ Cura Personalis Foodie February 26, 2012 at 6:39 pm

I am dying to try some of these recipes!!!! All those rice krispie-esque creations are calling my name :)


Danica February 28, 2012 at 7:27 pm

Finally made the Endurance Cracker! They turned out great, i used a thai spice since that is all i really had. very surprised at how well they stuck together and didn’t crumble!


Idelisa March 3, 2012 at 12:43 am

I’m glad I clicked a link to your site! I’m on a plant based weightloss journey at the moment and needed some recipe ideas. Loving what I see!! Thanks.


Melissa March 9, 2012 at 9:39 pm

Wonderful recipes! I am trying to go vegan and live in Richmond Hill. I find it difficult sometimes to find ingredients. Where can I purchase chia seeds?


Connie March 16, 2012 at 1:00 pm

What a great list! I’m especially excited about the no-marshmallow rice crispie treats! Thank you!


Elena @MTJW March 19, 2012 at 10:59 pm

Just bought some chia seeds at Bulk Barn to make those awesome looking crackers to go with my homemade hummus. I usually just wing the hummus but I’ll try using this recipe to see if I can get it even tastier!

My favourite snack lately has been Power Balls!



Laura March 21, 2012 at 7:39 am

This is mouth watering! I’m hungry!


Danielle March 27, 2012 at 2:47 pm

Angela, your post is a Heaven-sent! I was just planning to wake up earlier tomorrow morning and work on some healthy snacks like your homemade wheat thins, some of the bars, granola…because healthy snacks are essential for me to stay on the right track of healthy eating!

Thanks for putting them all together in what is now one of my favorite of your blog posts! :-)


Angela (Oh She Glows) March 28, 2012 at 7:55 am

Enjoy the recipes!


Leanne @ Healthful Pursuit March 27, 2012 at 4:22 pm

You know you’re addicted to a blog when…
You’ve made 20 of the 22 recipes listed.
Awesome roundup, Angela! Each and every single one I enjoyed was darn tasty :)


Kait's Inside Dish March 28, 2012 at 8:22 am

I am now officially starving after ogling your blog! Everything looks amazing especially the blueberry chia pudding, I love the color, makes for a great refreshing and delicious dessert! I will definitely be trying all of these recipes!


Angela (Oh She Glows) March 28, 2012 at 3:24 pm

haha sorry about that….enjoy!


christen March 29, 2012 at 9:18 pm

I can’t wait to try them all! Amazing! (by the way, the link for #19 keeps taking me to the recipe for #20. A sign that’s what I really want to make?) :)


Mama's Gotta Bake March 31, 2012 at 12:04 pm

Absolutely love, love the chickpeas!


Angela (Oh She Glows) April 1, 2012 at 3:36 pm

Glad to hear that!


Brittney April 8, 2012 at 2:39 pm

This is the first time I’ve ever been to your website and I can’t tell you how happy I am to have found you on Pinterest! I almost didn’t click the pin! Your recipes look fantastic, something I don’t often say about vegan recipes. I am pregnant and nursing right now and all of your snacks on here can be eaten and enjoyed! I can feel my protein intake rising.. :P


Angela (Oh She Glows) April 9, 2012 at 7:34 am

Glad to have you here Brittney! I hope you enjoy the recipes and all the best with your pregnancy.


Steve April 14, 2012 at 7:01 am

Awesome! I have been trying to eat healthier as of late but have really been missing sweet snacks. These all look like great recipes I can try out.


Kayla April 17, 2012 at 7:04 pm

I love all of these and am excited to try each of them. I feel like I should make them all in one day…..
I really enjoy coming to your page and reading through all the recipes..planning my meals and then enjoying them. Thank you for sharing.


Angela (Oh She Glows) April 18, 2012 at 7:47 am

Thank you Kayla!


K July 4, 2012 at 8:32 pm

Absolutely loving your recipe ideas. Stumbled upon them as I googled
recipes today. I couldn’t find the chia pudding recipe. Would you
repost or email it to me? Thanks again! -k


Angela (Oh She Glows) July 6, 2012 at 7:34 pm
Erica July 8, 2012 at 12:14 pm

The blueberry pie chia pudding is my new favorite breakfast! It’s so nice after a morning run with some cereal and almonds on top (I like Kashi cinnamon Heart to Heart). I liked it so much that I took a few pictures of it and I’ll post them and a link to the recipe on my blog. Thank you so much!


Meghan South July 19, 2012 at 5:51 pm

Over the past 3 days I have been doing some research for a friend and I must say your blog has helped me alot to understand Vegan living as a whole. Iam even considering going Vegan Myself


Nacole July 23, 2012 at 8:27 pm

hi! i am LOVING these ideas and printing off recipes for snacks! my girls and i have already made the salt and vinegar chickpeas and whole wheat crackers! we have recently gone vegan and this has helped so much!

i thought you would also want to know that there is a virus attached to your blog–when i go to your blog from google search, a blinking alert shows up in the place where your blog address was and tells me that there are viruses on my computer and then tells me to clean it– i thought it was valid because it was from microsoft essentials–my spyware–but then it downloaded something–i just took it off my computer–thank goodness! also, some of your recipes won’t print–it tells me there is insufficient memory to print (error in page script)–on some of them but on others it prints fine. just wanted to let you know! thanks for the great ideas!!!


Angela (Oh She Glows) July 24, 2012 at 7:59 am

Hey Nacole, I’m glad to hear you are all enjoying the snack recipes!
Re: the virus, we don’t have any problems on our end. I spoke with my husband and he said it’s likely you have a virus on your computer, so you might want to run a scan with a virus software. I haven’t heard of anyone having problems with the print function, but I will look into it!


Karla August 14, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Hi Angela,

Do you have a banana bread recipe?


Kate October 11, 2012 at 6:37 am

I want all of these right now and it’s 6am? I’ll have to bookmark this page. :) Thanks for this awesome post!


Celeste October 17, 2012 at 1:55 pm

I have a question. I saw chia seeds in alot of recipes and I really want to try it but what worries me is I have read that it “could” cause cancer in males granted my husband probably will never try it but what if I was to make muffins or something and he wanted to try it….how do you feel about that? Does your husband eat chia seeds?


Angela (Oh She Glows) October 17, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Hey Celeste, I haven’t read anything about harmful effects of chia seeds. Can you point me to the article you read? Thanks!


Celeste October 17, 2012 at 5:09 pm

Sorry I should have commented here ooops!


Celeste October 17, 2012 at 5:08 pm

But then this is the alternate:

I read the ehow one first when I was googling chia seeds for information.


Angela (Oh She Glows) October 18, 2012 at 2:03 pm

Thanks for the links Celeste. One article says ALA can have anti-cancer properties (with regard to breast tissue). Another says ALA may reduce risk of heart disease while it could be a risk factor for prostate cancer. Confusing! The studies are 6-9 years old, so I’d be interested in seeing if more recent research has been done on this topic. It’s definitely worth looking into. Thanks for passing them along!


Celeste October 18, 2012 at 3:10 pm

I really want to try chia seeds so it looks like I would be ok. Does your husband eat them?


venu October 21, 2012 at 2:17 am

hi ange!
i tried your recipe “endurance cracker” but it didnt come out well….the seeds didnt hold together like crackers but they were just like toasted seeds…do you know what might have happened? thanks a lot!!!


Angela (Oh She Glows) October 22, 2012 at 9:19 am

Hey there, Did you make any modifications to the recipe? It’s hard for me to know what went wrong since I wasn’t there.


venu October 22, 2012 at 10:03 am

NO….well..the only modification i did was to change the 1/2 cup of chia seeds (cause i didnt have those) for 1/2 half of mixed seeds. I put the seeds, the water, grated onion and garlic and some herbs…. they are reallly tasty tough! i really loved them! i was just expecting it to be like crakers….i was thinking that maybe i missed some flour or sth similar that allows the mix to hold together…. what you think?
thanks a lot Ange!


Angela (Oh She Glows) October 22, 2012 at 10:11 am

Hi again, I think the chia seeds are a necessary ingredient in this recipe as they bind the ingredients. I hope your next trial goes better!


Diane November 29, 2012 at 12:11 pm

Wow! What a beautiful compilation! Can’t wait to make them. Am about to do the endurance crackers now! Question: I clicked on the link for chocolate chia seed pudding and the banana split overnight oats is what came up instead. ??


Angela (Oh She Glows) December 1, 2012 at 9:11 am
Diane December 1, 2012 at 10:46 am

Thank you!


Ann November 29, 2012 at 12:17 pm

Just like all your admirers I can’t wait to get started trying these recipes and admiring,tasting and sharing the results with family and friends . I was putting together the ingredients for Christmas cake chopping almonds measuring fruit and stopped to read your mail, nice break ,thank you !
Ann in London (England !)


Phyllis November 29, 2012 at 11:20 pm

Angela…thanks for these wonderful recipes! I copied all of them for use in the immediate future…all except one that is. The link for #19, Healthy Chocolate Chia Pudding, points to
# 20, Banana Split…. I really would like the Chocolate Chia Pudding!!! Please fix the link? Please? (Thanks again!!!)


linda December 3, 2012 at 6:56 pm

I love the recipes that i see and want to keep getting them!


Alicia February 15, 2013 at 10:02 pm

Great recipes and ideas! For those who love a really creamy hummus, try peeling your chickpeas and then rinse well before blending. This takes a bit of extra time, but trust me it makes the most smooth amazing hummus. Cheers!


Jo February 15, 2013 at 11:04 pm

I’m not a vegan, so it wasn’t that aspect that drew me in–it was the fact that all of these are so low in sugar, and packed full of super healthy ingredients! It’s surprisingly hard to find snacks, treats, and energy bars in the store that don’t have upwards of 10 grams of sugar (in that case, you might as well just be eating a candy bar!). Since I’ve started looking at food labels more, and since my Grandpa’s diabetes has gotten harder for him to handle, I’ve been trying to be more careful about my sugar intake. These recipes sound delicious and easy to make, and I won’t feel guilty about indulging in a little extra when I make them!


Renata March 9, 2013 at 12:05 am

Too bad most of the links on this post are broken. x.x


Kat Davis April 9, 2013 at 1:09 am

A friend of mine is going vegan for 30 days. While I already subscribe to your RSS feed and had given him your website for recipes and inspiration, he was struggling for snacks (other than plain baby carrots) so I googled “vegan snacks” and look what showed up first! So perfect! I sent him the link and there are so many yummy suggestions!


Cass September 18, 2013 at 6:49 am

These options looked pretty good. Fruit is the best snack. I’ll eat 5 bananas for a snack or 3 mangos. For more raw/vegan snack and dinner recipes, check out my site @ veganslivingofftheland.blogspot.com


KellyK September 28, 2013 at 7:22 pm

I am so excited to find this website! I am walking 60 miles in the Susan G Komen 3 day in 6 weeks and I am worried about cheese and peanut butter as the only vegetarian options during the event! I plan to make several of these and keep them in my pack while I walk. Thank you!!!! You have saved me :)


Adam Paul November 30, 2013 at 2:26 pm

Thank you so much for the recipes. Always looking for new vegan snack ideas and you have some great ones!


Janamian May 21, 2014 at 8:28 am

i am gone attack number 17 with some seeds crackers :)


Swapna July 4, 2014 at 1:47 pm

Thanks for the list! One of my favorite vegan snacks to make is plantain or banana chips!


Dan August 14, 2014 at 12:23 pm

Literally all seems either really dull, not gluten free, unfilling, or else difficult to make and a lot of hassle. But usually all of the above. These just do not compare to the ONE recipe I know that’s vegan that I use… packed full of veggies…

This food is all just so typical and disappointing to me :(… guess I’ll just keep searching.


Marlaina December 4, 2014 at 2:36 am

These are some great resipies! i have just decided to go vegan because of the way meat is treated and prosseced. i would like some feedback please and thank you!


SavoieNeal August 4, 2015 at 12:12 am

Fantastic post! I can’t wait to try a bunch of these recipes. You rock.


[email protected] February 26, 2016 at 1:35 am

Great post! I’m not a vegan but I still want to try all of these at some point (especially the one’s with chocolate involved :) )


Crissy October 8, 2016 at 12:34 pm

I would like to receive your newsletter please. ??


Angela Liddon October 11, 2016 at 8:10 pm

Hi Crissy, you can sign up for the newsletter here! Please let us know if you have any troubles with it. :)


Som November 23, 2016 at 6:50 am

All your recipes look amazing. My blog is brand new and I constantly look for inspiring posts and found yours. M co-blogger Amy (Amy’s Table) has recently done post on travelling snacks. Check them out here- http://sheplanseverything.com/2016/11/21/travelling-snacks/


Tanis September 18, 2018 at 12:43 pm

These look amazing but the links to their pages don’t show anything. Where are the recipes for them?


Angela (Oh She Glows) September 21, 2018 at 8:17 am

Oh no, I’m sorry about this Tanis! Thanks for letting me know. We no longer use Recipage, so that is why the recipes aren’t showing up. If you search for the recipe title in our blog search the post should come up. In the meantime, I’ll make a note to fix this page. :)


alyssa June 19, 2019 at 8:12 am

just an FYI- the links don’t seem to be working!


Angela (Oh She Glows) June 30, 2019 at 11:02 am

Hey Alyssa, Oh shoot, sorry about that! I will look into it again :)


Erin July 22, 2019 at 8:31 am

I know this is an old post but the links to the individual recipes don’t seem to work anymore =(
