Vegan Snack Recipe: The Avodilla
With buttery avocado wrapped between light and bubbly lavash layers, and maple syrup and salt giving a hint of sweet-salty flavor, this healthy riff on a quesadilla will help keep you satisfied until your next meal. The secret to this recipe is the combination of the savory, rustic flavor from the lavash bread, combined with the buttery avocado and accented with a pop of sweet. The sweetener even adds a slightly caramelized texture to the lavash as it sizzles on the skillet.

Vegan Snack Recipe: Ladybugs on a Leaf
This fun and tasty savory-sweet snack includes almond butter, leafy greens, and chewy goji berries. If you loved ants on a log, you will love ladybugs on a leaf. Goji berries are such a fun and delicious ingredient to keep in your pantry. They can easily be used in place of raisins or any dried fruit. You can serve them straight from the bag, all chewy and super sweet, or soak them to plump them up and soften their texture and mellow the flavor a bit.
