Although native to California, Trader Joe's has become a nationwide phenomenon. Known for their budget-friendly, healthier food options, Trader Joe's has recently been touted as the place to find quality vegan products at a more consumer-friendly price. I decided to go find the 19 best Trader Joe's vegan items and share them in hopes of helping out new veggie-heads.


Jumbo Cinnamon Rolls

Yes, this is for real. There are no eggs or dairy in these amazing oven-baked rolls of goodness. Unfortunately, there are not many health benefits to these, but we all need to indulge every now and again.

Coconut Creamer

If you're looking for something to bring your coffee game to a whole new level, this coconut creamer is for you. The coconut flavor that it gives your coffee is so deliciously rich, it rivals that of a flavored dairy creamer. 


Roasted Coconut Chips

Heavenly, simply heavenly. These are so yummy by themselves, but even better when you warm them up for a few seconds in the microwave and put them on top of vegan coconut milk ice cream with chocolate sauce.

Chunky Spicy Guacamole

Even though there might be an avocado shortage, this guacamole is definitely worth it. Whether or not it's Cinco de Mayo, this dip deserves a spot on your grocery shopping list.

Reduced Guilt Multigrain Pita Chips

These would pair excellently with TJ's Chunky Spicy Guac. At only only 100 calories per serving, these chips are a must-have for a person watching their calorie intake.

Fruit Bars

These bars are perfect for tossing in your bag when you're heading out the door and in need of a snack. What makes them even better is that every single flavor is deliciously gluten-free.

Apple Banana Fruit Sauce Crushers

If you toss these in the freezer for an hour, they turn into a luscious smoothie consistency. This is one of the best Trader Joe's vegan items for kids. If you're trying to start kids out early with veganism, these will definitely help them get a sweet treat that doesn't violate their dietary restrictions.

Almond Butter

Every variety of almond butter that Trader Joe's carries is vegan, so pick up your favorite and indulge. For something different, try melting a tablespoon of almond butter and dipping banana slices in it. Although this almond butter is great on its own, it's even better when baked into chewy paleo, vegan almond butter cookies.

Apricot Preserves 

These preserves work magic in a marinade or as a spread for toast. Even better, you can use it in an apricot crisp (just substitute the butter for another vegan option).

White Bean Hummus

Add in some pita chips or pretzels and you've got the quintessential vegan afternoon snack. And with 2 grams of protein per serving, this hummus is a great way to bump up your total amount of protein for the day.

Fat-Free Caramel Popcorn

Pairs well with Grey's Anatomy and your couch. If you want to give it a little extra something, go crazy and add some caramel sauce. 


Vegetable Fried Rice

Fried rice is just so good and this one is no exception. If you're feeling a little more adventurous, here's a vegan fried rice recipe you can make from scratch.

Pad Thai

A Pad Thai that is totally vegan is something I never thought I would find, yet here it is. This is definitely one of the best vegan items that you will find at Trader Joe's. 

Zucchini Fries

These zucchini fries are an excellent way to sneak veggies into any meal. If you want to spice them up a bit, try them with this vegan ranch dressing.


Mini Churros

Vegan or not, who wouldn't want these? Top them with a little caramel or chocolate sauce and these become an essential post-dinner treat.

Soft-Baked Snickerdoodle Cookies

These snickerdoodles are so good warmed up with vegan ice cream on top of them. Ice cream cookie sandwich? Yes, please.

Fruit Floes

A refreshing after dinner snack that is truly Italian ice on a stick. If you're a HCLF vegan, these fruit floes will you be your best friend.


Mango Green Tea

The best drink for a hot summer day or a post-workout refresher.

Organic Strawberry Lemonade

Alyssa Modos

It's amazing by itself, but tastes even better when added to a smoothie (especially banana). This lemonade achieves the perfect balance of sweet and tangy. 

These are without a doubt the best Trader Joe's vegan items. Vegan or meat eater, you're sure to love these items the same. So, why are you still reading? Go to Trader Joe's!
