14 Awesome Vegan Travel Snacks

14 Awesome Vegan Travel Snacks

I can’t be the only one who gets ravenous while travelling. Maybe it’s out of boredom or lack of distraction from my hunger, but I always have to eat something on the go. It’s easy to maintain a gluten-free vegan diet at home, but it’s entirely another story while travelling. Thankfully, more and more snacks without dairy are appearing in the market. Better yet, most of the time, they’re gluten-free. Here’s a list of the healthy and not so healthy vegan travel snacks that I like.

Nakd Bars

The healthiest and tastiest vegan travel snacks are Nakd bars. It’s gluten-free, GM free, low in saturated fat and made from all natural ingredients. Not to mention they count as one of your five a day! My favourite flavours are the Cocoa Orange, Lemon Drizzle and Berry Delight.

BodyMe Organic Vegan Protein Bars

Not only do these BodyMe Bars taste like a naughty treat, but they’re raw, gluten-free and soy-free. Thanks to adding three types of plant protein, each bar has 16g of protein containing all 9 essential amino acids! That makes them one of the best vegan travel snacks to tie you over until your next meal. All three Cacao Orange, Cacao Mint and Chia Vanilla are delicious!

BodyMe Organic Vegan Protein Bar | Raw Cacao Orange | Box of 12 x 60g | With 3 Plant Proteins

Raw Cacao Orange

Ingredients: Protein blend (pea protein, sprouted brown rice protein, hemp seed protein), cashews, dates, coconut nectar, cacao, cacao nibs, coconut oil, water, orange oil and sea salt.

Raw Chia Vanilla

Ingredients: Protein blend (pea protein, sprouted brown rice protein, hemp seed protein), cashews, dates, coconut nectar, chia seeds, cacao, coconut oil, vanilla extract, water and sea salt.

Trek Bars

Cocoa Chaos gluten-free energy bars have 10g of protein, making them amazing vegan travel snacks to fill your tummy while travelling. Other flavours include Banana Blast and Berry Burst. If you prefer an oat texture, try the Original Oat Protein Flapjacks which also have 10g of protein in each bar.

However, be aware of the other nutritional values such as high sugar content. Depending on your diet, you may only want to eat half a bar per serving.

Deliciously Ella Energy Ball

When a friend first brought me to Deliciously Ella restaurant in London, I nearly died of excitement. It’s like heaven for someone with a vegan and gluten-free diet. Of course, I had to try the Deliciously Ella energy balls. My favourite is the cacao and almond flavour!

Cacao and Almond

Ingredients: Dates, cacao, roasted nut butter, almonds, coconut and a pinch of salt.

Booja-Booja Hazelnut Crunch Chocolate Truffles

The Booja-Booja vegan and gluten-free truffles are rich and smooth with a sublime dark chocolate taste. Your body will thank you because they don’t even have any refined sugar, yet they taste so good! Since they come in a small box, they make for awesome vegan travel snacks.

Booja-Booja Hazelnut Crunch Chocolate Truffles, 104g

Ingredients: Chocolate (Cocoa Solids 55%, cane Sugar, vanilla), coconut oil, hazelnuts 18% and cocoa powder.

Mini Moo Chocolate Bars

I got these little chocolate treats in my stocking one Christmas (thank you Santa!). They are the perfect snack with a cup of green tea and guess what? Yep, they’re gluten-free and vegan since they contain rice milk rather than animal milk. My favourite flavours are Cheeky Orange and Bunnycomb Honeycomb.

Itsu Dark Chocolate Rice Cakes 

These crispy delicious dark chocolate rice cakes are more on the unhealthy side, but that doesn’t stop them from being great vegan travel snacks. Ahem – in moderation. Of course, they’re still healthier than a bar of chocolate. They come in packs of three, they’re fairly big meaning they take longer to eat than biscuits and they contain wholegrain rice which is more filling! Although it does say “traces of milk”, I personally still consider this product vegan since none of the ingredients contain dairy. Once again, they’re gluten-free.

itsu Dark Chocolate Rice Cakes 50 g (Pack of 12)

Yushoi Snapea Lightly Salted Rice Sticks

A salty, crunchy and moreish alternative to crisps. Yushoi Snapea Rice Sticks are gluten-free and high in fibre and protein. Even better, they’re easy to bring in your backpack for a snack wherever you are!

Yushoi Snapea Rice Sticks Savoury Snack Lightly Salted 21 g (Pack of 24)

Hummus Chips

I’m a hummus fiend, so when I tried these sea salt hummus chips, I felt head over heels in addiction. They pack is bigger than regular crisps, and they’re healthier. Win!

Eat Real Hummus Chips Sea Salt 45g (Pack of 12)

Sea Salt

Lentil Chips

Lentil sea salt chips have a poppadom-like texture, great for crunching on the go, or dipping into hummus.

Eat Real Lentil Chips Sea Salt 40g (Pack of 12)

Sea Salt

Fruit and Nut Mix

I don’t like to buy pre-made trail mixes as they can contain extra unhealthy ingredients such as oil. Instead, I like to buy my own mix of dried fruit and nuts to bring with me on a day-trip or weekend trip in small secure tupperware.

My favourite include coconut flakes, raisins, walnuts, brazil nuts, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds.

Suma Organic Sunflower Seeds 2.5 kg

Organic Pumpkin Seeds

Obviously, for a longer trip, I can’t bring a gazillion bags of different food with me. Instead, I just bring tupperware in my backpack, and then buy a range of dried fruit and nuts when needed in each new destination.

Almond Butter

Almond butter is the holy grail of vegan foods. It’s the perfect nutty and salty spread for toast, bagels, oat cakes and rice cakes. It can be drizzled over cereals, smoothies and ice-cream or used to make a sauce for salad or pasta. It’s extremely versatile and SO delicious. Since almond butter is naturally fatty, it’s best to only have one teaspoon a day if your diet is already healthy. Of course, that doesn’t stop me from being insanely addicted to this stuff!

Better yet, it’s gluten-free and only has two ingredients, almonds and a tiny bit of salt!

While travelling, you can either carry almond butter in tupperware, as it doesn’t need to be refrigerated, or simply buy a jar of the stuff and pack it in your luggage!

Meridian Smooth Almond Butter, 1kg

Peanut Butter

Surprisingly, peanuts are the one of the few things I don’t like. Although I’m aware that there are plenty of peanut addicts out there! If you’re on a budget, and you love peanuts, add peanut butter to your list of vegan travel snacks.

Meridian Smooth Peanut Butter - 100% Nuts, 1kg

Nairns Fruit and Seed Oatcake

I only discovered these fruity vegan and gluten-free oatcakes recently, and I can’t stop eating them. They have high fibre and protein to keep you fuller for longer, making them perfect vegan travel snacks. Try spreading on nut butter with sliced banana, and you will thank me later!

Nairns Fruit and Seed Oatcakes 225 g (Pack of 8)

I hope you find this list of vegan travel snacks useful for your next trip. If you have any doubt about this vegan gluten-free lifestyle, please know that it’s far easier than it sounds. Don’t hesitate to ask me any questions either!

      Tori you will die when you try the almond butter. It’s really well paired with banana, or there’s probably other fruit too. I will have to try your peanut butter spread on apple snack!!

      I’m so happy that you’ve decided to be vegetarian! You may struggle at the start, but once you slowly stop eating meat altogether, and substitute it for healthier options, you will feel so much better! Let me know if you need any tips or advice.

      They’re so goooooood. Yeah everyone likes a bit of chocolate, even if you’re vegan or not 😉 The only thing you have to be careful with is the level of sugar in vegan snacks. Although if it’s not refined sugar, then I see that as healthy because it’s natural! There are far less artificial things in vegan snacks at least!!

      I know how you feel! I travelled through Vietnam and found it extremely hard to find even actual vegetarian dishes (with no fish sauce or beef broth etc). They really don’t get the concept. You can enjoy some of these when you’re back!
