Today we’re bringing you three different vegan snacks that are easy to make and delicious! We’ve got healthy energy balls, creamy baba ganoush and smooth nutella. Each snack is great for a quick pick me up between meals that any lazy cook can make!
The energy balls are amazing for on the go, post workout and for taking to school or work. They’re tasty and pack a nutrient punch! These are a great healthy alternative for any occasion.
The baba ganoush is perfect to have as a dip with pita bread and other veggies for an easy, delicious snack. You can make this in a larger batch and store in the fridge for up to a few days after making.
The decadent nutella is our slightly healthier version of the store bought jars. Depending on how long you blend this for you can have a smooth or slightly crunchy consistency - whichever you prefer! Spread this on toast or onto fruit for a satisfyingly sweet snack to curb the chocolate cravings.
We hope you love each of these recipes! They’re...
