When it comes to the late night snack we all want something nice and easy to prepare. You might be partway through a new Netflix series, and those little hunger pangs are pressing enough to warrant attention.

You want to get back to the comfort of your sofa quick sharp, so the last thing you want to be doing is putting together a complex late night vegan snack that takes 30 minutes to make.

If that sounds like you, you’re in the right place.

Below you will find 10 Quick n Tasty vegan late night snacks that will not take more than 10 minutes to knock up.

Sweet or savoury, light or heavy, we’ve got you covered.

So if you’re ready, let’s get to it.

1. No-Bake, Salted almond & honey snack bites

No-Bake, Salted almond & honey snack bites

These no-bake, oat-based bites are a perfect addition to an hour sat in front of the television before bedtime. This easy to make vegan late night snack can be as sweet or savoury as you desire.

Don’t mind a touch of natural sugar before you turn in for the night, you can layer up with a coating of maple syrup for that oh so sweet flavor.

There’s also the option of adding a some dark chocolate on top, however we do not neccessarily recommend that if you’re trying to watch the calories.

The almonds and almond butter are chock full of healthy fats, making this a rich and rather filling snack to get you through the night.

What You’ll need:
  • 1 cup raw almonds (unsalted)
  • 1 cup large flake oats
  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • 1/3 cup of maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • Melted dark chocolate (if you’re brave enough at this time of night)
How you’ll do it:
  1. Use a food processor to grind up the almonds and oats,  (20-30 seconds should do it, you want a breadcrumb type texture)
  2. Pour mix into a bowl and add your maple syrup, almond butter, vanilla extract and sea salt.
  3. Mix thoroughly to turn your everything into a nice thick dough.
  4. With damp, clean hands, roll your mix into small balls (you should get 8 or 10 with the measurements we have suggested).
  5. Move into the fridge or freezer to set and then serve up your late night snack
  6. (Coat your delicious balls with melted chocolate if you’re not calorie watching!)

2. Peanut Butter Jelly Apple Nachos

Peanut Butter Jelly Apple Nachos

This grain-free alternative to a delicious PB&J sandwich is a wonderful late night treat that you’ll end up turning back to time and time again.

With the texture of crunchy chips (to satisfy that little craving), you are safe in the knowledge that no unhealthy salt has passed your lips.

The apple base provides a very tasty high-fiber level to the snack, while the peanut butter and jelly topping is so darn tasty the only problem you’ll have is to make sure there’s enough to go around.

What You’ll need:
  • 1 apple (or more if you’re vegan late night snack is for a few of you)
  • 1-2 melted peanut butter
  • 1-2 tablespoons jelly of any kind
  • A ground up seed or nut topping of your choice
How you’ll do it:
  • Cut the apple(s) into thin slices and arrange on the serving plate.
  • Drizzle the melted peanut butter and jelly in any way you see fit, (pile it on or spread it thinly, you’re the boss!)
  • Sprinkle with what ever seeds or nut you have (checking that nobody has an allergy first)

3. Delicious Mediterranean Pinwheels

  • lettuce
  • tortillas, gluten-free

5. Watermelon Pizza

Watermelon Pizza vegan snack

We’ll finish with this wonderful 5 minute all fruit extravaganza: watermelon pizza. Can you think of a better way to snack late at night?

  • 1/2 cup strawberries, sliced in half
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup cherries
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • maple syrup
How you’ll do it:
  • Cut a slice of watermelon right down the middle (2-3″ thick should do it)
  • Spread an even layer of yogurt (a spatula works best for this) around the watermelon.
  • Pile on the chopped fruit toppings in any way you see fit – this is your vegan late night treat!
  • Drizzle maple syrup if you have an extra craving for something sweet
