Here are 12 vegan high protein snack ideas that are easy to make, delicious, and will keep you full! There are tons of benefits of protein and making sure you’re getting enough throughout the day is super important. These recipes make it easy and are perfect snacks for on the go and make great snacks for kids!

Why is including protein in your snacks so important?

Protein plays a key role in the creation and maintenance of every cell in our bodies, so it’s no surprise it’s incredibly important to make sure you’re consuming enough, as adequate daily protein intake keeps our cells in good shape!

  • Protein is crucial in building and repairing tissue.
  • Dietary protein can aid in digestion as it goes into making enzymes, which helps your body digest food.
  • Protein is an important building block of bones, skin, muscles, and cartilage.
  • It’s important for hormone regulation!

Although I recommend getting in at least 30g of protein at each meal, your snacks don’t have to contain as much. Even 10g of protein at snack time is enough to satiate you until your next meal! Most people think of hard boiled eggs, cheese, or meat sticks when it comes to healthy options.. which are great but can get kind of boring, right? There are plenty of ways to add protein into your snacks that are fun and satisfying!

There are great store-bought options that I love, like these IQ Bars and pistachios, but sometimes I just need a little more. Below are 12 of my favorite high protein snack ideas that are vegan, gluten free, and refined sugar free!
