As a vegetarian, you’ll need to have a variety of snacks on hand for a variety (and possibly even all) of your eating needs.
But what if you’re one of the fortunate ones who doesn’t have the space or time to cook, or if you have other things on your plate?
If you’re trying to decide what snacks to get your heart pumping and your mind racing, you’re going to want to take a look at some of these healthy snacks to ensure you have enough to keep you going.
Healthy snacks for working, work, and social occasionsHealthy vegan snacks are often considered an optional extra on the menu.
But as the days of the week change and new food season arrives, it becomes a more common necessity to stock up on these snacks at work, at home, or in social settings.
Here are the five best healthy vegan snacks for a busy day:Banana bread, almond milk, and a banana for lunchThe first thing that you’ll notice about these healthy vegan lunch snacks is the absence of carbs.
There are no dairy, gluten, or refined sugar added, and there’s no refined or processed sugar.
All the toppings are non-dairy, which makes this lunch a good option for those who are looking to get their daily nutrition straight.
These banana bread snacks are delicious for lunch, and you can easily find a recipe on my Pinterest page for the homemade banana bread that you can make at home.
The homemade version is also packed with flavor.
Banana muffins and browniesThe next lunch snack is one that is easily accessible.
This recipe comes from my personal favorite recipe from my own personal favorite vegan blogger, My Vegan Baking Addiction.
These muffins are sweet, chewy, and light.
They also pack a punch with their almond milk and the protein that’s in them.
You can easily add the toppishes of your choice to these muffins, and the flavor will make them even better.

Add the remaining ingredients and mix until well combined.
Add the avocado, flax and chocolate chips and mix well.
Add 1 tablespoon water to the bowl and mix to combine.
Place the bowl into the refrigerator for a minimum of two hours, then add the avocado mixture and mix just until completely incorporated.
Let sit for two more hours to soften.
You may also want to refrigerate overnight, and then store the mixture in an airtight container.
