2 Healthy Vegan Snacks for Work

September 7, 2014

Working in an office setting can sometimes lead to unhealthy eating.  It seems there are always occasions to celebrate.  Promotions, retirements and birthdays lead to sugary snacks and treats in the break room.

After ending a two-month freelance assignment, I wanted to do something special for my coworkers.  Since sugary treats are readily available, I decided to make them something tasty but also healthy and unique.  These vegan snacks will satisfy a sweet tooth while providing energy for the workday.

Next time you are going to bring something in to the office, consider one of these recipes.  After all, healthy people are happy people and I think we would all prefer to work in a happy environment.
