Snacks Derived From Plants That Are Packed With Protein

Plant-Based Yogurt

Choose from various plant-based yogurts. Cashews, almonds, pea milk, oat, coconut, and soy milk form yogurt. Different variations affect protein content.

Chia Pudding

Enjoy cooking chia pudding if you haven't. Almond milk or other plant-based milk gels chia seeds overnight. Mix with your favorite fruit or sweetener for a protein-rich snack. 


Never limit tofu to family meals. Warm or cold, tofu is delicious. A protein-packed afternoon snack or party meal with 4–8 grams per 3-ounce portion, cubed, marinated, then roasted.

Roasted Chickpeas

Roasted chickpeas have three times the protein of potato chips and can satisfy salty snack cravings.

Roasted Nuts

Whether you blend spices with your nuts at home or stop at the market for plant-based protein snacks, nuts (including legumes like peanuts) make fantastic sweet or savory snacks.

Wasabi Peas

Wasabi peas make crunchy nibbles hot. There are bagged peas online and the little green spheres you see in the bulk goods area of the grocery store.


Healthier smoothies can be desserts. Some smoothie recipes incorporate yoghurt, milk, or kefir for protein and smoothness, but plant-based milk and yogurt can be flavored with any fruit.


Black beans, white beans, and chickpeas can be seasoned and flavored for creamy dips with plant-based protein from a container or your blender. 

Seeded Crackers

Seeded crackers are healthier, crunchier, and tastier than saltines. Vegans and omnivores will love the crunch of plant-powered crackers with spreads, dips.
