About a month ago, I did a video on some easy vegan snack ideas. I promised to do a second part so here it is! If you missed the first video, check it out here.
Easy Vegan Snacks (Part 1):
For the second part, I made 3 different recipes. All of them are SUPER easy, a baby could make them. Well, not really but maybe five year olds could. These are so easy that they don’t even really constitute a written “recipe” but I’ll try to give you one anyway. It’s one of those weird things that when the recipe is too easy, it’s almost difficult to write a recipe… I don’t know if that makes sense lol.
Easy Vegan Snacks (Part 2):
On a side note, if I could hire someone to come up with better names for these things than myself, that would be wonderful. But wait, I can’t afford to hire anyone… hah.
Easy Vegan Snacks On The Go!
Hummus Tortilla Sushi (?)
- Tortilla wrap
- Hummus (as little or as much as you want… enough to spread a thin layer onto the tortilla wrap)
- Handful baby spinach
- Handful alfalfa sprouts
- Spread a thin layer (or thick, but that might make it harder to roll… experimentation!) of hummus all over the tortilla.
- Add baby spinach and alfalfa sprouts along the centre.
- Roll from the bottom up like you’re rolling a yoga mat or something… watch the video cause I suck at written instructions.
- Then cut them up into small bite sized pieces.
- Bring them to work, school or a PICNIC!! HOW AWESOME WOULD A PICNIC BE!
Almond Butter Oat Balls (?)
Ingredients (makes about 3 small balls):
- 3 tbsp rolled oats
- 1 tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chips (just check the ingredients list to see if they are vegan)
- 1.5 tbsp almond butter (or any other nut butter of choice)
- 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
- Add all ingredients into a small mixing bowl.
- Mix together with clean hands and form small balls. Lick fingers afterwards cause you don’t want to waste the goodness.
- Enjoy as a delicious and healthy snack!!!
Now I did not come up with this and if you’ve been vegan for a while, you may have tried this or at least heard of this before. This is a cheap and very healthy snack and I’ve talked about this multiple times! You can also do this in multiple ways. So easy.
- Can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed (feel free to use your own cooked chickpeas too)
- dash of olive oil
- Salt and other spices you want to add. I used garlic powder and nutritional yeast. But I also like to use stuff like cumin and chili powder… anything will do!
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Drain and rinse chickpeas.
- Place them on a paper towel and using another paper towel, dry them as best as you can. Some of the skin will come off so just toss that!
- Toss the chickpeas in a bowl with a little olive oil (and you can also add salt at this stage or after baking).
- Place onto baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes or a little longer.
- I read in another recipe blog that you should turn off the oven after this and leave them in the oven for about an hour to become drier and crispier. I haven’t tried this but it sounds promising!
- When they are done, toss in other spices of choice!
- Make sure you let the chickpeas COMPLETELY cool down before storing – otherwise, they will get soggy and non-crispy.
