High-Protein Vegan Snacks That Make Whey-Free Life Way Easier
Vegan ≠ Low-Protein
Most people don't go plant-based or vegan with the intention of eating more packaged foods. But on-the-go options can come in clutch when you'll be traveling somewhere that's not so vegan-friendly. They can also make hitting your goals easier if you're trying to build muscle while avoiding animal products.
These dairy-free snack options all have at least 10 grams of protein per serving, so they'll help you hit your macro goals and avoid becoming hangry between meals. (FYI, here's how much protein you need per day.)
Lenny & Larry's The Complete Cookie, Chocolate Chip
These fall well into the chewy end of the soft-crunchy cookie spectrum. They have 16 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber per cookie, while a normal chocolate chip cookie has close to zero of each.
No Cow Salted Caramel Sundae Peanut Fluffbutter
Siren Snacks Chocolate Brownie Protein Snack Bites
For a brownie swap that's way higher in protein, try these dark chocolate bites filled with chocolate chips and almond and pea protein.
PROTES Vegan Baked Protein Chips
Après Cold Brew Coffee
Square Organics Lightly Sweet Organic Protein Popcorn
Julian Bakery Vanilla Cluster ProGranola
This granola is everything that normal granola's not: high in protein, low in carbs, and low in sugar. Add it to coconut yogurt when you're in need of a filling snack.
Lightly Salted Eda-Zen Organic Toasted Edamame Snacks
When you need a salty, crunchy snack, nosh on this toasted edamame. It's like the chip version of the bean, but it packs in 12 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber per serving.
ALOHA Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Bar
For a peanut butter and chocolate pick-me-up after your workout, bring one of these vegan protein bars. They're organic and gluten-free—and they don't contain artificial ingredients, soy, or stevia.
Nuts.com Vegetarian Protein Mix
Trail mix will give you a boost of energy, but it's not always a healthy—or vegan—option. (Lookin' at you, M&Ms and chocolate chips.) Instead, try this high-protein vegan snack mix of roasted cashews, chickpeas, fava beans, edamame, and soy beans.
