Can’t Get to the Bakery? These Fab Vegan Cookies Are at Your Grocer’s

Published by .

Once you’ve filled your grocery cart with all the essentials—like fruit, veggies, tofu, and pasta—you might find yourself wandering down the snack aisle. To make your browsing a bit easier, we’ve compiled a handy list of all the vegan cookies that you might find in your local grocery store. These pre-made treats make it easy to enjoy a midday pick-me-up or just a quick dessert to end your day on a sweet note. And the best thing is that they don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients.

Other store-bought cookies might contain milk from cows whose babies are stolen from them. Cows are curious, gentle animals who form strong bonds with each other. In the dairy industry, all cows who are used for their milk are eventually killed—and they usually only live to a quarter of their natural life expectancy because of the stress of being constantly kept pregnant or lactating. Other ingredients you should look out for are eggs and honey, which harm chickens and bees.

Refer to this list to find your new favorite store-bought vegan cookies:
