Hello, fellow vegans :) I have a pretty busy daily routine, so I usually rely on hearty snacks in the afternoon/evening between work, my daily evening hike (this is research-related), and my nighttime yoga practice (I am training as a teacher). One of my favorite snacks is a banana dipped in crunchy peanut butter. I was wondering what everyone's favorite nut/seed butter and fruit/vegetable combination is! Bonus points if you add any special health benefits it might have ;) Thanks!

I'm allergic to peanuts so almond butter is my jam (no pun intended). I LOVE a banana with almond butter (in fact, I did just that while watching American Horror Story: Coven last night), but I also like apple with almond butter, too! Nothing like a good fuji or pink lady with the creamy stuff.

When I make a smoothie I usually put a tablespoon or two of almond butter in! so yummz.

Tahini! Apple/tahini and banana/tahini are great combos, on their own or as sandwich filling.

I also like carrots sticks with hummus or mustard.

I like apricots and almonds together. I usually have whole almonds, but I bet dried apricots stuffed with almond butter would work really well. Bonus health benefit: I gather apricots are a good source of vitamin A.

I love peanut butter but love sunflower seed butter even more. With sliced pears or superripe bananas.

I get Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter and put it on apple slices.

Also good on rice cakes with sliced bananas or strawberries.

I despise anything peanut.
I love almond butter with stone fruit: apricot, peach, cherry.
Sunflower seed butter is nice with strawberry jam.
I also like cashew butter.
All three of those go very well with banana or a nice ripe juicy pear. They are good with apple too.
I just made pecan butter, which is delicious, but I haven't decided what I like it best with yet.
Great topic, and welcome to the PPK. Your life sounds very busy!

I always do a 1:1 mixtures of tahini & peanut butter, or sunflower butter & peanut butter, and dip apple slices in it. Sometimes I also add a ttsp of date syrup or agave if I crave something sweeter.
If I'm at home I also put the mixture in the microwave for a bit, to make it a bit more fluid/viscous, to make it even more dip-able.

Banana with almond butter & chopped walnuts is also jummy.

Earth Balance coconut peanut butter with really good raspberry jam is my favorite treat these days. I eat it on rice cakes or Blues Bread. It reminds me of those raspberry Zingers I ate as a kid.
