When you’re day hiking or backpacking, it’s always nice to have some delicious snacks that will give you an extra boost. Traditional trail mix can get boring quick. That’s why I’ve rounded up some of my favorite vegan snack recipes that are perfect for packing with you on the trail.
Vegan Trail Mix
The secret to a tasty vegan trail mix is combining sweet and savory flavors along with crunchy and chewy textures. This mix checks all of the boxes. The pumpkins seeds and coconut chips give a satisfying crunch, while the dried cranberries and dark chocolate give this trail mix a hearty chewy texture. The roasted sunflower seeds bring on the salty goodness and the pecans simply tie everything together. Check out my vegan trail mix recipe!
Curry Roasted Chickpeas
I eat these crispy curry chickpeas all the time and they’re definitely one of my favorite vegan hiking snacks. They’re super easy to make and they’re full of fiber and protein. Roasted chickpeas give you a nice, satisfying crunch. Follow my vegan curry roasted chickpea recipe for crispy chickpeas that will last for up to 5 days. The perfect backpacking trail snack!
Lemony Cashew Date Vegan Bliss Balls
Vegan bliss balls are nothing new. They’ve been a favorite snack of mine and many others for a long time. That being said, the flavor combinations of these things are endless! I add lemon juice to just about everything I cook these days, so I tried adding lemon juice and lemon zest to this bliss ball mix and WHOA. It brings the flavor profile to a new level. Check out my vegan bliss ball recipe!
Easy DIY Dried Mango
It’s easy to dehydrate most fruits and bring them along on the trail, but mango dries into a wonderful chewy texture while retaining its bright flavors. It’s my favorite fruit to bring backpacking or hiking and it’s super simple to make yourself. See the dried mango recipe!
Crispy Veggie Chips
A bag of crunchy, salty veggie chips is a thing of beauty when you’re chillin’ at camp or taking in the scenery at the halfway viewpoint. You can make chips out of just about any vegetable, but the easiest are potatoes, zucchini, beets, and squash. You simply slice, season, and pop them into the dehydrator. Check out this tasty recipe I found on Wholefully.
