Whether you are vegan, vegetarian, or just enjoy incorporating plenty of fruits and vegetables into your healthy diet, I have some delicious high-protein vegan snacks you’ll definitely want to include in your snack rotation.
Sure, it’s easy enough to reach for something store bought or throw a pre-made snack pack in your bag, but having a healthy homemade (or semi-homemade) snack ready to go for when real hunger hits is crucial for busy folks on the go, especially when you want to keep hunger, energy, and cravings in check!
5 High-Protein Vegan Snacks
- One 15-oz can chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
- 1 – 2 Tbsp Creole seasoning
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Open and drain can of chickpeas.
- Allow chickpeas to dry, or pat dry with a paper towel.
- Evenly coat with seasoning, or toss in a bag with seasoning.
- Lay coated chickpeas in a single layer on a baking sheet.
- Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until they’re nice and crunchy.
- Let cool for around 10 minutes and start snacking.
Chef Notes: You can use any seasoning you like. You can even toss with different seasonings per batch (e.g., a packet of spinach and artichoke dip on one, vegan ranch dressing seasoning for another, etc.). These little high-protein vegan snacks take on the flavor of whatever spices you put on top of them and can pack a flavorful punch, but without the guilt!
