We’ve all been there.
It’s 2AM, everyone in the house is asleep, and you’re starving. It’s a bad case of the vegan munchies!

When I’m hit with the munchies, all inhibitions are lost.

  • Handfuls of almonds,
  • Spoonfuls of peanut butter, and
  • Chocolate sauce drizzled straight into the mouth

Sound familiar? We don’t judge! 🙊

vegan munchies

With more and more states legalizing medical/recreational marijuana, there’s a growing epidemic of munchies ravaging even the most well-stocked vegan kitchen.

Worst of all?

I’ve gotten the mad munchies without smoking!

This condition can affect smokers and non-smokers alike!
My best defense? Stay ahead of the cravings!

Vegan Munchies for Everyone!

All joking aside, February is National Snack Food Month! This got me thinking about my favorite snack recipes… dips, spreads, finger-foods, and (most of all!) desserts.

These guilt-free vegan munchies recipes are sure to satisfy even the most extreme cravings. Trust me! These recipes are all quick, easy, and stuck-to-the-couch-munching-approved!

I’ve separated the roundup into two categories: sweet or savory. We gotta keep things simple.. munchies are not something to mess around with! 😉

In the Mood for Sweet Vegan Munchies? Start Here!

1. Dark Chocolate Almond Joy Popcorn from Craving Nature

Few snacks are as munchy-friendly as popcorn! On the other hand, plain popcorn get’s really boring really fast. Kick things up a couple notches with this Almond Joy Popcorn!

2. Easy Vegan Apple Nachos with Pumpkin Caramel from Veggies Don’t Bite

This is NACHO typical nacho recipe! (HA! I crack myself up 😂). Ditch the chips for sliced apples, instead! To keep things fun, this fun snack is topped with a pumpkin caramel sauce.

3. Blueberry Vanilla Stuffed Dates from Feasting on Fruit

These blueberry stuffed dates are the epitome of vegan munchies! Who doesn’t love finger food!? Also known as “natures caramel”, Natalie pairs juicy dates with a blueberry/hemp-seed filling. Yummy!

4. Tahini Bon Bons from Fried Dandelions

I have a confession: I’ve never had a Bon Bon. In fact, I don’t know if I’ve ever met someone who has! Regardless, Sarah gives me one helluva reason to try! These sweet treats are actually stuffed dates coated in chocolate. What more could someone with the vegan munchies ask for!?

5. Dark Chocolate & Salted Date Caramel Bars from Soy Division

These sweet treats are almost raw, no-bake, and ready in about 20 minutes! Perfect for when you want a decadent dessert, but don’t have time (or patience) to sit around waiting!

6. Chocolate Dipped Caramel Apple Pops from PeaceMealxo

Do you remember those sour green apple caramel suckers? This is like the real-life version of those (thank god, I’ve been craving them since I went vegan!). These babes are easier to make (and eat!) than a full caramel apple, but just as delicious!

7. Chocolate Covered Strawberries from Ahead of Thyme

Sweet. Baby. Jesus. I need these chocolate covered strawberries in my life! Who needs to wait for Valen-LAME’s Day to celebrate chocolate-dipped strawberries, not me! Plus, you’ll feel like royalty lounging around eating such a beautiful dessert 😉

8. Aquafaba Chocolate Mousse from Vanillacrunnch

What can’t be made with Aquafaba!? If you haven’t heard, it’s the juice from canned chickpeas.. and it’s used for everything!
(Let’s all get t-shirts that say “I ❤️ Bean Water”)

This recipe takes it a different direction by turning the aquafaba into a light, airy, chocolate-y mousse!

9. Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites from Emily Kyle Nutrition

The queen of energy bites is back! This time she brought some Cookie Dough Bites, using secretly healthy ingredients! Just because you have the munchies doesn’t mean you have to regret it in the morning.

10. Vegan No-Bake Chocolate Cranberry Almond Granola Bars from Eat Spin Run Repeat

Granola bars are an amazing way to batch-cook snacks for the rest of the week! These treats are super portable, too, so you’re covered no matter where the munchies hit next!

16. Blueberry Pomegranate Breakfast Parfait from Healthier Steps

Normal parfaits are loaded with milk, sugar, and other unhealthy junk.. not this one! Using real-food ingredients, and sweetened with maple syrup, nothing gets better! Give yourself a reason to wake up and knock those munchies out of the park!

The color, presentation, and crunch-factor of this recipe really gets my mouth-watering! Incredible use of ingredients, no refined sugar, and raw pumpkin seeds to give it a beautiful texture!

Mint + Chocolate = pure bliss. Plain and simple! Rebecca takes these perfect flavors and combines them into a gluten-free, nut-free vegan energy bite!

Very few foods are as shareable as queso dip! So what happens when the whole party has the munchies hit at once? Crack out some tortilla chips, some vegan cheese dip, and let people go to town!

I love hummus, and I love Mexican food. It only makes sense to pair them together in one dish, right!? Veganosity and I are totally on the same wave-length on this one 😉

33. Baked Vegan Samosas from Broke Foodies

I’ve never had a traditional Samosa… However, these are anything but traditional! Idriss ditched the triangle shape for an easier dipping experience and baked instead of deep-fried them!

Roasted chickpeas are the ultimate vegan munchy food. Crispy, flavorful, and easy to make! That’s like the trifecta of vegan munchy perfection!

35. Harissa-Spiced Red Lentil Hummus from The Mostly Vegan

It might sound strange, but Harissa is simply a spicy pepper paste used traditionally in North Africa! Anything spicy gets my mouth-watering, and this hummus recipe is no different!

Potato wedges are another (yup, you guessed it!) amazing vegan munchies food! Especially when they’re baked, you can have an indulgent and filling snack without it being 3,000 calories per serving.

Picture this: vegan pizza… baked into a quesadilla. That’s basically what Cheftographer did with this amazingly simple (and tasty) treat! Especially if you’re wanting something a little more filling, this could be an entire meal!

38. Vegan Pizza Crackers from Elephantastic Vegan

Woot woot! Pizza crackers + vegan munchies = problem solved! These almost remind me of the pizza flavored Pringles, but, you know… not made from 100% chemicals? That’s always a benefit in my book!

39. Dijon (Vegan) Pigs in a Blanket from Well Vegan

Holy guacamole. I haven’t had Pigs in a Blanket since I was a wee child (LONG before I was vegan!). However, I didn’t know I was craving a vegan version until I found this recipe… thanks, Well Vegan!

40. Crispy Fried Pickles (in Air Fryer or Skillet!) from Cadry’s Kitchen

Am I the only one that has a food bucket list? Maybe? Well, fried pickles are on there for sure. Thanks, Cadry for reassuring me why they’re on there!

41. My Favorite Perfect Guacamole from Ceara’s Kitchen

Oh, snap. I used my “holy guacamole” joke too early… Oh well!

42. Paleo Doritos-Like Chips Recipe from Oh, The Things We’ll Make

I’m really on a chickpea kick this week! These are roasted and flavored with traditional falafel spices, literally the perfect combination!

I’ll admit: I haven’t experimented with curry as much as I’d like. That’s all about to change now that I’ve found this recipe!

48. Spicy Chipotle Hummus from Champagne Tastes

Hummus is another fantastic party food. When the hunger hits, break this spicy chipotle hummus out to satisfy the whole group’s vegan munchies!

49. Oven Roasted Cajun Cashews from Two City Vegans

Here’s a scenario: it’s midnight, you’ve got the mad munchies, and want something crunchy. Don’t go to bed dreaming hungry, whip up a batch of these spicy cashews! Best of all, they only take 12 minutes to throw together. Crisis averted!

50. Buffalo Cauliflower Bites with Vegan Cucumber Ranch from Vegetarian Gastronomy

I fell in love with these Buffalo Cauliflower Bites. Just look at them! Vegan breadcrumbs give the cauliflower an almost-too-real buffalo chicken texture, but I’m all for it!

51. Fresh and Easy Black Bean Dip Recipe from Namely Marly

Living in the Southwest, I’ve had my fair share of Mexican cuisine. As far as munchies go, not much gets better than dip! Why not spice up the traditional black bean dip with Jalapeños!? I’m drooling already!
