Are Cookies Vegan?
Are you hooked on cookies and wondering if they’re suitable for vegans? Keep reading to discover all.
Who doesn’t have the fondest memories of making (and eating) cookies throughout their life? From baking them with family and making a giant mess, to weekend nights spent with housemates and a warm batch to accompany a movie.
Cookies are generally made from creamed butter and sugar, flour, eggs and baking powder. After this, additions like fruit nuts, and of course chocolate can be added to the batter.
Are cookies vegan?
Yes, cookies can indeed be vegan. Even though eggs and butter were listed above as key ingredients, eggs aren’t essential and plant-based butter works perfectly. If you’re buying your cookies from a shop or cafe, it’s definitely worth checking the ingredients label or asking before you tuck in.
