Snack time...

A friend and I were discussing what our favorite vegan snacks were the other day, so I thought I'd share a few.

Grilled Chocolate Sandwich

2 slices of your favorite bread
about 10 to 20 vegan chocolate chips (depending on the size of the slice of bread)
1 tbsp Earth Balance

Heat a non-stick skillet to medium. Spread the Earth Balance on a single side of each slice of bread. Place one slice Earth Balance side down in the skillet. Place the chocolate chips on the slice of bread and then cover with the other slice of bread. Toast until each side is golden brown. Enjoy!

Spiced Nuts

1/2 tsp Cumin
1/2 tsp Chili Powder
1/2 tsp Curry Powder
1/2 tsp Garlic Salt
1/4 tsp Ground Ginger
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1 1/2 cups Unsalted Mixed Nuts
enough Olive Oil to coat

Preheat oven to 325. Toss all ingredients together in a bowl and spread them onto a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake 10 to 15 minutes. Let cool.

Caramel Oat Squares

1 cup melted Earth Balance
2 heaping tbsp of Coconut Oil
2 cup Brown Sugar
4 cup Quick Oats
2 tsp Baking Powder

Preheat oven to 400. Mix all ingredients together and press the mixture into a rimmed cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes and cut while still warm. These are great on thier own with a cup of tea or crumbled over your favorite frozen non-dairy treat.
