Right now while the world is going crazy and snacking is on the rise, i’m sure most of us don’t want our diets to go crazy too.
So I decided to hopefully help out a little by providing you all with some snack ideas that you can definitely be lazy with and just grab and go.
These are some of my go to no added sugar, Vegan (Gluten free) snack options for you to give a try.
These are snacks you can buy in most supermarkets in UK like sainsburys, tesco, Waitrose etc , a couple of these are in the US too.
And I know you are probably wondering, ‘ Where are the fruits and nuts etc..’ and yes, you have the obvious fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds snacks but i’m gonna share with you some ready made, just shove it in my mouth, foods.
Now the Larabar is one of my current faves, and they have a range of flavours to choose from ( not all are no added sugar though but i think the UK ones are at the moment) . If you are used to your typical very sweet chocolate bar than this might take a little getting used to, as it uses Dates to sweeten the bar. However I have recommended this snack bar to so many of my friends and so far they are all now obsessed, (ha i should be paid) so give it a go, and try different flavours because you might not like one but another one might take your fancy.
- Pop chips – https://amzn.to/2wemkA5
Popchips are definitely a snack I can’t get enough of, its like the Pringles catchphrase “Once you pop, you can’t stop” haha. I wish more flavours were made with no added sugar but other flavours are Vegan, so my Vegan friends – you got options.
- Corners popcorn crisp – https://amzn.to/3dRdMQR
Corners crisps, its popcorn but so much better. I get bored of salt popcorn sometimes but I could never get bored of these haha. It does have a different feel and taste than popcorn(which I love) but if you love popcorn you’ll love these.
- Nakd bars – https://amzn.to/2X4Mqka
Now Nakd bars definitely have something for everyone, (sorry my nut allergy friends, I think they might all have nuts) and they are sold in a lot of places, so it’s very likely you may have come across them before. These fruit bars are unbelievable good. I have to admit I tried one and hated it at first, but than I revisited them later, but different flavours and was pleasantly surprised. When you do not eat added sugar and you are Vegan, snacks are a myth (well at least that was the case a few years ago when I started). So when I found these, they became my new chocolate bars and cake replacements. I know some people who say they hate dried fruits or nuts but i’ve got them to try different flavours of these and now they love it. There are so many flavours, you are bound to like at least one, even if you are a picky eater.
- Deliciously Ella energy balls – https://amzn.to/2RaUax0
Deliciously Ella energy balls were my saviour when I first cut off sugar. I was obsessed. I also loved the fact that I could make them at home because she shared the recipe on her site . The price of these balls is quite steep so it’s great that you can make your own at home cheaper, but also I found out you can buy them in bulk online for cheaper too. The cashew and ginger ones are really good too. ( Not all of the flavours are ‘my version’ of no added sugar as some use syrups, but they’re all better than sugary sweets regardless – make sure to check ingredients)
- Propercorn pop corn – https://amzn.to/2V1eG4t
And lastly some popcorn! Popcorn is great if you want a snack thats low in calories, however salt popcorn is probably the only flavour you will probably find that has no added sugar within.

Also I linked where you can buy these options in bulk as they can be kind of expensive compared to regular snacks, so I usually buy in bulk from amazon, which comes out so much cheaper. Or I just wait till the shops put them on offer.
I’m looking forward to a future with more no added vegan options!
I can see it happening.
We already have more and more labels saying no added sugar (just wish they said no added sweetener too, but progress is great so I will appreciate for now)
There are a lot more other options for people who consume milk or syrups or sweeteners, but obviously I don’t consume those things so that is why I don’t promote them. I thought i’d mention it though because I know some of you are making a transition to vegan/sugar free and those options may help along the way before you make the full change.
I hope that this post aids you on your journey.
