Whether you’re sitting outside a Parisian cafe or at your kitchen table in the UK, croissants are the pastry choice of the masses. But are they vegan?

Everything you need to know about these layers of flaky and buttery pastry, gently rolled into a crescent moon shape.


These buttery, flakey and chewy pastries are a historic staple in French and Austrian bakeries and pâtisseries. The dream is a croissant that pulls apart so well that you can admire each individual layer.  

Making croissants from scratch is a meticulous process that involves repetitive rolling, folding, rising and lamination. But are they vegan?

Are croissants vegan?

Traditionally, no – croissants aren’t vegan because large quantities of dairy-based butter are used during their production; in the pastry and added in layers for lamination. However, it is possible to buy or make your own plant-based croissants that are delicious.

To learn everything about making the perfect vegan croissants read this post from our Development Chef and trained pastry chef, Flo.
