Making your own high-protein vegan snack is simple. Just grab whatever oats, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, or granola you have left over in your pantry, mix it up with a binder and a sweetener and you have the base of a delicious, healthy snack.
All you have to do is roll your mixture into bars or bites and stick them in the refrigerator to take with you on the go. Choose one or all of these tips for making a high-protein vegan snack to stay full and energized throughout your day!
1. Use Nut Butter as a Binder
Nut butter is rich in protein, healthy fats, and most importantly delicious flavour! Quick recipe: just combine peanut butter, coconut, dates, and walnuts for a high-protein, super delicious bite!
If you aren’t the biggest fan of nut butter, you can try masking the nut butter flavour with bolder plant-based ingredients like sesame and pistachio! You will add protein to your snack without overwhelming it with peanut butter!
2. Choose A Flavored, Vegan Protein Powder
Protein powder is great because it adds up to 20+ grams of protein per serving for a low amount of calories!
3. Mix in Nuts and Seeds
Nuts and seeds are loaded with healthy fats, protein, and flavour! They’re already in bite-sized chunks so they’re perfect to add to your snack bites and bars! Fir example, adding pistachios is a great idea. The best part about pistachios is that they add flavor, color, and loads of protein!
