Healthier Vegan Super Bowl Snack Recipes

Roasted Garlic Oven Fries
Fries are a staple for sports snacks, and we’d never dare suggest you miss out on them entirely, which makes this oven-baked take perfect. I’m sure this recipe would work with sweet potatoes as well — do you see mixed fries in your future? I sure do. Bonus: These babies are also gluten-free.

Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms
These bite-sized beauties are perfect for mindlessly popping during the game. The umami from the mushrooms and the light and refreshing herb and citrus vinaigrette will make these ‘shrooms go quick!

Dark Chocolate Coconut Oil Fudge
Every party needs a few sweets — even if we’re trying to keep it healthy. This recipe, which is also gluten-free, is lighter than your standard fudge but equally as rich (thanks, coconut oil!). I would suggest at least doubling the batch, depending on your party size.

Healthier Gluten-Free Super Bowl Snack Recipes

Healthy Mexican Sweet Potato Skins
Potato Skins and the NFL go hand-in-hand. This sweet potato version will fulfill your cheesy potato-ey cravings with the added bonus of boosted doses of potassium and fiber.

Apple Nachos
Kind of dessert-y, definitely healthy and totally munchable, this lighter take on nachos is a party staple at my house. This recipe is easily adaptable for your vegan guests as well (just leave out the honey!).

Avocado Deviled Eggs
Deviled Eggs hold a place on every game-day table (or any party table, really). This recipe replaces the tried-and-true mayo filling with avocado and sour cream to lighten it up a bit. The end result is delightfully colorful and delicious to boot.

Healthier Vegetarian Super Bowl Snack Recipes

Stellar Quinoa Burgers
Quinoa and sweet potatoes are the stars of this veggie burger show. They’re served on english muffins to lighten ’em up a bit — and topped with a mound of guac to keep you from realizing it.

Skinny Baked Cauliflower Tots
Made with nearly all veggies and just a little cheese, these tots are destined to be delicious. Baked instead of fried, this recipe is a total win.

Healthy Mediterranean 7-Layer Dip  Switching up the flavor profile of the standard 7-layer dip has added health benefits too! This recipe is a game-changer for game day.

Healthier Takes on Classic Super Bowl Snack Recipes

Bell Pepper Nacho Boats
The bell pepper slices in this recipe give you the crunch you’d expect when eating nachos — without the hefty calorie count of chips.  

Grilled Zucchini and Ricotta Flatbread
Flatbread — it’s like pizza, but a teensy bit healthier.

Secretly Healthy Brownies
If you haven’t experienced the magic of zucchini in baked goods, you have to try this recipe. Zucchini is perfect in brownies because it keeps things all moist and gooey — just what you need out of a brownie with the added bonus of a serving of veggies for dessert. Talk about winning.
