Vegan finger food for children's birthday parties
When children's birthdays are coming up, parents tend to go big and offer a real buffet of delicacies in addition to cakes, snacks and sweets. But at the end of the event, you often find yourself in front of masses of leftover food that you can eat from for days. The solution to avoiding an overflowing fridge at the end of the day is finger food! Vegan finger food for children's birthday parties is quickly prepared, brings variety to the children's table and there is sure to be something delicious for every child. But it doesn't always have to be the well-known pizza snails or chips with guacamole that you find at pretty much every party. We want more and especially child-friendly recipe ideas. That's why we've collected the 5 best vegan snacks for your children's birthday party in this practical article.
Delicious vegan finger food for your party
Everyone likes canapes. The bite-sized treats offer a choice for every taste and can usually be prepared quickly, easily and at your convenience. Whether set up as a finger food buffet or gradually brought to the table, everyone likes to grab something here. Instead of an elaborate dinner, vegan finger food is the highlight of your child's party. We have the best ideas for you on how to turn a child's birthday party into a vegan picnic for you.
Rainbow plate - colorful and delicious
Parents tend to underestimate the power and attraction that cut fruits and vegetables have on children. A plate with lovingly arranged fruit and vegetables and everyone grabs it. In combination with a delicious dip, hardly any child can resist. It doesn't take great preparation to put a beautiful and colorful platter on the table. For example, a good dip for raw vegetables is hummus, which is also packed with nutrients. A guacamole dip or different variants with fresh or dried tomatoes will certainly appeal to the dwarfs. And all of this is vegan by accident - it doesn't get any better than that, right?
Vegan Party Snake
Whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner - mini buns are fun. It doesn't matter whether you conjure up the purchased version for baking or homemade dough from the oven. Line up the little treats to form a snake and decorate the head, if you like, with raisin or black olive eyes and a little carrot tongue. A delicious vegan pesto, vegan quark with garlic and herbs or simply raw vegetables such as cucumber, peppers and carrots go well with this. You can find a delicious recipe for quick rolls here:
What you need:
- 500 g flour, preferably spelled flour
- 2 teaspoons of baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp sugar
- 2 teaspoons neutral oil
- 1 tbsp sesame seeds
- 1 (muffin) tray
How it goes:
For the dough, mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, oil and 320 ml water with a mixer. Form balls from the mixture and place in the wells of a muffin tin. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake at 200 degrees for 10 minutes until golden brown.
Golden brown pizza sticks
Surely you already know the well-known pizza snails, which should hardly be missing at any party. However, eating the snails is often difficult for children, which is why we looked for a child-friendly preparation for the snack. Everyone can make pizza snails, but we proudly present our delicious pizza sticks, vegan of course:
How it goes:
To prepare our vegan version of the pizza snails that you probably know, vegan puff pastry is a must. Combine the puff pastry with pesto or tomato paste and then top it as you wish. There are hardly any limits to your ideas here: Whether zucchini, olives or spinach, everything is allowed as a filling. Then season with salt, pepper and some basil and roll the puff pastry into sticks. The finished snacks go into the oven until the puff pastry is golden brown. A vegan finger food that hardly anyone can resist.
Miniburger – vegan and delicious
Kids love burgers - they'll love them even more when the burgers are small enough to fit in a child's hands. You can make a super healthy version with whole wheat bread, sweet potatoes, salad and pesto, but it will be a real hit if the burgers are reminiscent of their big role models. A falafel mix, for example, is suitable as a burger patty, but also tofu from the refrigerated section. With a bit of salt and pepper, ketchup, garlic cloves, apple cider vinegar and liquid smoke you can conjure up a BBQ sauce and top the burger with tomatoes, cucumber, the falafel patty and lettuce. The delicious snack that makes children's eyes shine is ready.
Cauliflower Wings: vegan finger food kids love
Did you know that cauliflower in batter is an excellent vegan finger food? Not only is our recipe vegan, it's also gluten-free and a healthy snack that's loved by those who don't usually eat cauliflower. With just a few ingredients, this finger food will quickly become your absolute favorite recipe and should not be missing at any celebration.
What you need:

- 3 tsp garlic powder

How it goes:
Cut the washed cauliflower into small florets. Mix the plant-based milk with the water, chickpea flour and spices in a bowl to create a thick mixture. Dip each floret into the mixed ingredients and place on a baking sheet. Now you can bake the vegan version of the wings in the oven at 220 degrees for about 20 minutes until golden brown.
Now brush the finished florets with the BBQ sauce before putting them in the oven for another 20 minutes. Other barbecue sauce goes well with this, but also ajvar, garlic dip or a delicious tomato pesto.
