20 Healthy Vegetarian Snack Recipes - Title Image | Hurry The Food Up

Welcome to our ultimate, nay, DEFINITIVE healthy vegetarian snacks list! We’ve got light, healthy snack ideas that everyone will love – both sweet and savoury.

Whether you are looking for an afternoon pick me up or need to bring some easy vegetarian snacks for a party, you’re sure to find something that takes your fancy!

Healthy vegetarian snacks – What makes a snack healthy?

A few simple criteria were used to select these recipes. We looked for snacks that contain at least 7g protein per serving and less than 15g fat, of which no more than 8g is saturated. We also aimed for around 5g fibre per serving.

We have also tried to stick to natural ingredients – fruit, vegetables, legumes, whole grains – to keep the overall nutritional value high.

You can eat these healthy vegetarian snacks for weight loss because most of them are fairly low in calories and filling (thanks to all that protein and fibre).

The particularly low calorie veggie snacks on the list include these frozen blueberry yoghurt bites or these blistered shishito peppers.

If high protein veggie snacks are what you’re after, try this chocolate protein pudding or our very own quinoa egg muffins.

Snack hacks: Gluten-free & Keto Vegetarian Snacks

We have not only catered for vegetarians with these healthy vegetarian snacks…we have also catered for other diets that may overlap with vegetarianism.

Are you trying out a keto diet? Try some keto vegetarian snacks like these zucchini low carb pizza muffins or these soy sauce eggs.

Can’t eat gluten? Never fear! We’ve got you covered as well – over 50% of these recipes are gluten free. Try these tomato caprese bites, for example, or these healthy oatmeal banana bars.

Remember when we said there was something for everyone with these healthy veggie snacks? We weren’t kidding! Enjoy!
