Lately, I've been finding myself out-and-about and famished. What do I do? Dig into my bottomless pit of a purse (of course) and pull out an energy bar. Aside from the lack of health value most energy bars provide, this vegan is downright bored. We need some meatless snacks for a Monday that is energized and sustained without the monotony we might generally associate with this not-most-peoples-favorite day of the week.
All cooks who value homemade snacks need a kale chip recipe in their back pocket... you know, for when that potato chip craving strikes. You might be surprised how delicious these Salt and Vinegar Kale Chips from Bowl Licking are. Truly.
The good people at The Curvy Carrot are keeping our savory tooth satisfied in times of need with this recipe for Roasted Pimentón Chickpeas. A handful here and there will hold you over until dinner and prevent a wild overindulgence.
Let's take a turn towards the sweet tooth, but in a very healthful way. In fact, these cookies are loaded with superfoods and very pure ingredients. Raw, vegan and decadent, these Strawberry Thumbprint Cookies are Rawmazing (not a bad play on words, but rather the name of the blog).
Another heartier sweet to add to your snack repertoire comes via Munchin with Munchkin. These Kumquat Poppy Seed Scones can be fished from any purse and paired with a midday tea (or coffee) for something oh-so satisfying.
