Frequently Asked Questions
Can I make this Top 8 Allergen Free?
These are are totally up to, so only add ingredients that are safe for your allergens.
Can I prep these ahead?
They take minutes to throw together and are also awkward to leave in the fridge, so we wouldn’t necessarily recommend throwing them together days in advance; however, you could totally make them up ahead of time.
Can I warm ingredients into a vegan snack tray?
Yes! But warm first before adding.
What is a good sauce to go with these snack trays?
We don’t usually serve a sauce, so it’s completely optional.
Should I use a 6 tin muffin tin or 12?
We usually do 6 so our kids don’t get overwhelmed with options. However, if all you have is 12, then you can do as many or few as you want.

What should I put into these vegan snack trays?
Vegan snack trays are perfect for snack time, but they also make a great lunch or even dinner option, especially when you are short on time.
We try to give a mix of ingredients that focus on a protein, a mix of fruits and vegetables, and then a snacky type of ingredients like pretzels or energy bites.
Here’s more than 50 ideas of what to put into a vegan snack tray:
Vegan Protein Options:
We usually pick one protein to add to a tray.
- black beans
- leftover warmed tofu
- leftover seitan
- peanut butter
- almond butter
Vegan Fruit Options:
- sliced bananas
- nectarine slices
- peach slices
- cherries (pitted)
- kiwi (peeled and slices)
- apple slices
- Mandarin oranges or regular orange slices
- melon (watermelon, cantaloupe, etc)
Great creative with exotic fruits too. It’s a fun way to get kids to try new foods. Try passionfruit or rambutan.
Vegan Vegetable Options:
- baby carrots are carrot sticks
- sliced bell peppers (any color)
