It’s always good to have some vegan bars, bites, or balls ready to take on-the-go with you. They are perfect snacks for busy days and are usually quite easy to make. While you can buy vegan snack bars at most grocery stores, it’s way more fun and fulfilling to make you own. Plus, you get to control what’s in them! You can pack them full of nutrient dense ingredients and add whatever flavor combinations you love. Making your own vegan snacks is also great if you have allergies. A lot of store-bought vegan bars, bites, and balls contain nuts. If you make your own, you can use ingredients like oats cacao, and seeds to make your vegan snacks allergy-friendly! They’ll be just as, if not more delicious!
