Vegan snacks like protein bars, bites and balls are a practical alternative to protein powders and a tasty addition to any healthy, varied diet.
If you are vegan, protein bars provide valuable proteins. While non-vegans and athletes use these bars to supplement their daily protein intake.
Also popular among bodybuilders, runners or cyclists because the protein content of these bars are high-quality
They’re also life-savers for those long outdoor activities. As a snack at work, to provide fresh energy during a mid-afternoon lull.
Vegan protein bars are also beneficial for those who are on a diet. They’re handy especially when cravings start; people choose this healthy snack instead of burgers, pastries or candy bars.
Basically there 4 different protein bars:
All protein bars differ in their nutrient contents and ingredients, which result in a lot of advantages and disadvantages.
The right protein bar for you depends on your diet and goals. We’ll show how each bar is different to help you decide which one is best for you.
Normal protein bars
The big advantage of a normal protein bar is its high protein content and its origin.
Mostly high-quality milk and whey protein is used, which is one of the best protein sources.
Normal protein bars also offer the largest selection of flavors. The price of these bars depend on the size and quality of the ingredients.
Vegan protein bars
In contrast to normal protein bars, no milk and whey protein is used, but mostly seeds, nuts, or soy protein and without animal products.
Almost every vegan protein bar consists of excellent and first-class ingredients, especially superfoods.
As a result, a vegan protein bar not only provides a good portion of protein, but also plenty of vitamins and minerals.
Vegan protein bars’ prices also depend on the size and quality of the ingredients.
Low carb protein bars
Low carb products have been created recently. But be careful! Not all protein bars that say “low carb” are really “low carb”.
Those who crave sweets despite being on a low carb diet can eat low carb protein bars.
Low carb protein bar prices also depend on the size and quality of the ingredients.
1. Asian Vegan Dishes
Asian cuisine contains virtually no dairy products and naturally uses vegetables. From fried noodles to various curries--you name it, they can be made with vegetables.
But be careful, curries and other Asian dishes, use fish sauce as a basic ingredient. You can alternate this with regular table salt or pink Himalayan salt.
2. Vegan Protein Bars & Bites
Today, there are a lot of vegan protein bars made of popular superfoods that fight cravings. They’re made of nuts, seeds, dried fruits, and other natural additives.
Sugar-free and nut-free bars are also available. These bars are handy especially when you’re too busy to prepare a healthy breakfast for your kids. You can supplement their basic PB&J with vegan protein bars, for example.
3. Fruits, Nuts & Seeds
Nuts are ideal snacks because they’re packed with essential fatty acids & vitamins, they’re convenient to take anywhere and, of course, vegan!
These little pieces ensure you get a feeling of fullness quickly and your hunger is kept within limits.
Along with nuts, fruit slices are also handy snacks to satisfy pangs of hunger. Bananas, apples, pears, grapes, berries are all easy to pack together with your gluten-free sandwich or just take them as is.
Fruit slices are also popular for kids. You can make your own trail mix with your favorite dried fruit pieces, nuts and seeds.
And as easy to make are vegan energy balls from these same ingredients. Here’s a recipe for you.
4. Veggie Chips and Dips
Tired of the ‘ol homemade potato chips? Try beetroot, carrot, parsnips, kale, zucchini or sweet potatoes!
Yep, these homemade veggie chips are really cheap!
You can bake almost any vegetable, thinly sliced with a little splash of vegetable oil and your own spices. Put them in the oven at around 150°C until they are nice and crispy.
If you want to experiment more, try roasted chickpeas! With an extra vegan dip, snacking becomes a real experience.
But why not just dip fresh & raw vegetable sticks? Dip carrot or cucumber sticks into your homemade vegan dip.

5. No-cheese Cheese Sticks
Here’s what you’ll need for a whole sheet full of delicious crispy sticks
250 g frozen vegan puff pastry
150 g cashew nuts
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp yeast flakes
1 tsp lemon juice
1 onion, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic
Salt & pepper
The most popular movie snack is popcorn, as we all know.
Vegan version is freshly popped fresh corn kernels with herbal salt.
Or a healthier alternative is puffed quinoa which you can definitely make at home!
7. Gummy bears
Just because some gummy bears available without gelatin doesn't mean they are vegan. In long lists of ingredients, it is difficult to recognize the hidden animal products at all.
Even dried berries or homemade fruit gums made from syrup and the vegan gelling agent agar agar are much more transparent.
Small pieces of chocolate in a crispy biscuit dough really look good. However, cookies from the supermarket usually don’t contain enough nutrients and they’re always too sweet.
Homemade raw food cookies or brownies made from just four natural vegan ingredients are clearly the better snack alternative.
Almost all of us just can’t do without chocolate!
Fortunately, homemade chocolate made from cocoa butter, cocoa powder and agave syrup is ideal for experimenting with other ingredients such as raisins, nuts, seeds and berries.
This is a healthier and cheaper alternative to finished chocolate, but also the more creative.
10. Energy bars
Mass produced power bars can be expensive. And you’re not always sure of the ingredients.
Similar to protein bars, you can make energy bars or balls yourself by using natural ingredients like dried fruits, nuts and seeds.
You can also take them on the go, or simply store in the fridge to enjoy anytime you like.
