Vegan Cookies: Best Brands & Cookbooks

If you love cookies, you’ve got all sorts of terrific vegan options. This short guide lists several popular brands. And if you want to bake your own, we’ve got recommendations for superb vegan dessert cookbooks.

Cookies need not be bad for your health. Just opt for cookies made at least partly from unrefined ingredients. Oatmeal cookies are, by default, largely wholegrain. You can get good results baking with unrefined sweeteners, and chopped nuts will boost the nutritional value of any cookie recipe.

Vegan Cookie Brands

Trader Joe’s and Uncle Eddie’s bagged vegan cookies (which is the same product sold under different brands) are tastier than any store-bought non-vegan cookie I’ve ever eaten.

Locally-baked vegan cookies often have a flavor edge, because they can be hours rather than weeks old. You may be able to find them at your favorite coffee shop or natural foods store. Additionally, the bakery at every Whole Foods Market makes its own vegan cookies.

Several vegan cookie brands have national distribution. If you have a natural foods store nearby, chances are they stock at least one such brand in their cookie aisle. You can also buy these products either from or directly from the company.
