Vegan biscuits

Vegan shortbread


Substitute standard butter for olive oil in our vegan shortbread recipe. The biscuits come out just as crumbly as traditional versions, and require just five ingredients. 

Try serving them with our homemade peanut butter or pistachio & cardamom butter.
 

Salted caramel biscuit bars


These salted caramel biscuit bars taste just like a favourite chocolate bar, but they’re free from refined sugar and dairy, and loaded with dates, almonds and porridge oats instead. The biscuit base is topped with a caramel filling made from peanut butter, dates and almond milk, then coated in dairy-free dark chocolate.
 

Vegan chocolate chip cookies


Make these vegan chocolate chip cookies to bring back happy childhood memories. Simply whisk cold coconut oil with golden caster sugar and light muscovado sugar, then add the dry ingredients and dairy-free chocolate chips before baking.

Serve with a glass of almond or oat milk for an indulgent snack.
 

Vegan gingerbread people


Make these festive vegan gingerbread people for a special Christmas treat. This clever recipe uses coconut oil in place of butter, chia seeds instead of eggs, and chickpea water to make an egg-free royal icing. But, they’re still loaded with plenty of warming, festive spices.
