You don’t have to be vegan to eat vegan. In fact, it’s great to try healthy snacks every once in a while, especially if your diet is mostly meat and fast food. You’ll be amazed at how delicious and fulfilling healthy food can be, and if it doesn’t make you change your eating style altogether, it will help you make more nutritious choices in your diet.

Try these 4 amazing vegan snack recipes:

Quick Cinnamon Apple Chips

What you need:

  • 2 red apples, thinly sliced

  • 2 teaspoons of sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

In a bowl, sprinkle apple slices with sugar and cinnamon and toss to evenly coat the fruit. Arrange apples on a baking sheet so that they do not overlap. Bake in a preheated oven (200F) until dried and crispy (but still pliable), about 2 to 3 hours. Serve immediately.

Garlic, Lime and Avocado Hummus

What you need:

  • 2 ripe avocados, pitted and peeled

  • 2 cloves of garlic

  • 2 cups canned chickpeas

  • 1/3 cup tahini

  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin

  • Kosher salt

  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander for garnish

  • Red pepper flakes for garnish

In a blender or food processor, combine avocados, chickpeas, garlic, tahini, lime juice, and olive oil. Season with kosher salt. Blend until mixture is smooth. Pour the mixture into a serving bowl, then sprinkle with the chopped coriander and red pepper flakes. Best served with wholemeal bread or fries.

Healthy trail mix balls

What you need:

  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter, melted

  • 1/2 cup mini dark chocolate chips

  • 1/4 cup mini M&Ms

  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts

  • 1/4 cup raisins

  • 1 tablespoon of honey

  • Kosher salt

Mix together the old fashioned rolled oats, peanut butter, dark chocolate chips, M&Ms, peanuts, raisins and honey. Season with kosher salt (depending on desired saltiness). Stir until the ingredients are well mixed. Form into small balls (about a tablespoon in size) and arrange on a plate. Cover and refrigerate until set, about 1 to 2 hours.

Green apple nachos

What you need:

  • 2 green apples, cored and cut into wedges, chilled

  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter, heated

  • 2 tablespoons of muesli

  • 1 tablespoon of dried cranberries

Arrange apple slices on a serving plate. Using a spoon, drizzle generously with heated peanut butter. Garnish with granola pieces and dried cranberries. Serve immediately.

Whether you’re vegan or not, these quick vegan snacks will surely make you eat healthier!
