There are pre-made vegan meal replacement bars and protein bars that you can usually find just about anywhere, like Clif bars and Luna bars. (I think those are all vegan.)

If you just need to replace milk in your recipes, you could try soy milk, rice milk, almond milk, or hemp milk. Usually I find that soy milk works best in baking recipes, though. If you need to replace butter, use Earth Balance, if you can find it. Also, you could try canola oil.

To my knowledge, the Clif bars are all vegan, but a type of Luna bar is not. They came out with a protein bar and it's not vegan. Their regular Luna bars and I believe their Luna cookies are vegan-friendly.

I also like Vega.

Yep, the Luna Protein product contains whey. Also their Luna Recovery Smoothie contains whey. The rest of their product line is free of animal products.

As far as bars go you can't get better than ProBars, however out of financial convenience I opt for the Clif or Clif Builder bars.

Oh, that reminds me. Clif makes a recovery drink, also contains whey.
