I run a lot (like, a whole lot), so I’M ALWAYS HUNGRY. That said, when I first transitioned to a plant-based diet, I struggled with staying full between meals. I had no problem creating delicious vegan breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, but I would often forget about the snacks that fall between. Not having vegan snacks readily available made it so much easier to resort back to my old ways: i.e. binge eating pretzels with Nutella. For those who are considering switching to a plant-based diet (or who just need to switch up their vegan snacking routine!), here are my suggestions for super easy, super filling, and super delicious snacks.
No-Bake Peanut Butter Crisp Balls
Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Bites
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Bars
Cinnamon Kettle Corn
Spicy Sweet Potato Fries
Chubby Hubby Protein Bars
High Protein Banana Peanut Butter Snack
Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Miracle Cookies
Chocolate Covered Banana Almond Bites

Banana and peanut butter just might be the best food combination (second only to Nutella and bananas…), so a peanut butter cupcake with banana frosting, sounds perfect! Usually, I stick to making cookies, since cookies are relatively straight forward to bake, but this cupcake recipe is simple enough for even a beginner like me. Next time, I’m going to replace the peanut butter with Nutella…and if all goes well, I’ll post the results!
The recipe (from Coffee and Quinoa) calls for almond milk, but I used regular 1% milk instead, which seemed to work well.
