On this page: reviews of vegan biscuits, and where you can buy them.
Because taste is so subjective, you may like to take a look at the “What May Affect My Reviews” page before reading the reviews.
Out of all the the vegan biscuits we have tried, here are our top choices: Vegan Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookies from Aldi and Tradecraft Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies are top picks. Morrison’s Free From Shortbread is another favourite, as are Fox’s Party Rings. Also yummy are Mint Oreo’s and Biscoff Biscotti biscuits.
Here are all the vegan biscuits we have tried so far…
Fox’s Party Rings (Home Bargains)
Steve and I both love Fox’s Party Rings, as does my friend Helen. These are ringed biscuits made with shortcake, then topped with different colours of icing. They are sweet and delicious. They are also widely available in supermarkets and other shops pretty cheaply, and are not too calorific compared to many biscuits. I will be buying these again.
Morrison’s Free From Shortbread
These vegan biscuits are absolutely delicious! Steve likes them too, as does my friend Helen. Having said that, my sister and her partner were not to keen on them. This vegan version of shortbread does not taste the same as non-vegan shortbread I have tasted, but it is actually much nicer in my opinion. It is really sweet and buttery tasting, even though it has no butter in it. The taste is quite heavenly! It is pretty crumbly, but also has tiny little slightly chewy bits in it that I love. These biscuits are very more-ish. I will definitely be buying these again.
Sainsbury’s Free From Shortbread
Steve and I both liked these. In fact I love them. They are very sweet and taste really buttery to me. In fact, I wonder if the same company makes this shortbread for both Morrison’s and Sainsbury’s, as they taste the same to me. Just like the Morrison’s one above, I would not say they are very much like dairy shortbread I’ve had in the past, but I honestly think these are nicer. I would definitely buy these again.
Asda Free From Jammy Wheels Biscuits
I thought these vegan biscuits were nice, except they could be more generous with the jam. If they spread the jam generously right to the edges instead of just the blob in the middle, that would make them that little bit sweeter and more moist. Steve thinks they are lovely as they are.
Lotus Biscoff Biscuits
I really like these. At first, I sometimes think they taste slightly burnt, but that quickly disappears and I am left with the lovely sweet taste with just the right amount of cinnamon in. Steve and my friend Helen like them too. Another plus point is that they are fairly cheap.
Traidcraft Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies (Real Foods, Edinburgh)
Steve and both thought these vegan biscuits were lovely! They are crumbly with a lovely chocolate flavour. My niece and nephew were also very keen on these biscuits. We definitely want these again.
McVitie’s Crunchy Granola Oat Bakes Dark Chocolate & Almond (B&M)
These say 35% less sugar, and I think I can tell. They are not as sweet as I would have liked, but if you are not as fussed about sweetness as I am, they are nice enough.
Vegadolce Vegan Chocolate Striped Peanut Cookies
Steve and I both thought these were very nice, but a bit too heavy on the large chunks of peanut that were on the top of the biscuits.
Asda Free From Stem Ginger Cookies
I thought these would have been nicer with a bit less stem ginger (made them a little too hot for me) and more sweetness. They were a little hot/spicy for me. Steve liked them though, and said they were not hot or spicy to him, and probably wouldn’t be to most other people.
Morrison’s Fruit Shortcake Biscuits
These were really nice. Steve was a bit reluctant to try these because he thinks he doesn’t like fruit like this in things much, but when he had a taste he conceded that they were pretty tasty. They are fairly cheap and I would buy them again.
Nairns Dark Chocolate Chip Oat Biscuits (Tesco) –
These vegan biscuits are quite chocolatey, but nowhere near sweet enough for me and a little too dry. They are rather thin too. Steve is keener on them than I am, but he is not that bothered about getting them again.
Asda Oatie Crumbles
These biscuits are like Hobnobs. They are delicious, lovely and sweet, which I like. I would like to have these again.
Oreo Original Biscuits (Pound Stretcher)
These are chocolate flavoured vegan biscuits with a vanilla centre. They are nice, but my friend Helen is a bigger fan than I am. She says they are chocolatey and more-ish, and she loves how creamy the filling tastes without having any actual cream in it.
Oreo Mint Biscuits (Pound Stretcher)
This flavour of Oreo is particularly tasty. They remind me a bit of Viscount chocolate biscuits. I would definitely buy the mint ones again.
Strawberry Oreo Biscuits (Pound Stretcher)
My friend Helen and I thought the Strawberry Oreos were nice and reminded us a bit of strawberry Angel Delight.
Sainsbury’s Bourbon Creams
Steve said these tasted to him like any other bourbons, but I thought they possibly weren’t quite as sweet as some others. They were nice though, and enjoyed by myself, Steve, my sister, and her wife. .
Sainsbury’s Ginger Snaps
I have never been keen on ginger snaps / ginger nuts, etc, as they are too spicy – they make my mouth burn – and these were no different. Steve liked them, as did my sister and her wife.
Belvita Breakfast Soft Bakes Golden Grain (from most supermarkets)
They are quite soft, and I find them moist enough. They are a nice sweetness and and are tasty. I may buy them again.
Asda Soft Baked Breakfast Biscuits Choc Chip –
These were soft and moist, and had a nice sweetness. A really tasty vegan biscuit. I may buy them again.
Maryland Treats Big Choc Chip Cookies
Many of Maryland’s cookies have milk in them, but these particular ones I found in B&M didn’t have milk listed in the ingredients on the packet. They were rather tasty, but not as nice as the Traidcraft chocolate cookies.
Belvita Breakfast Tops Choco-Hazelnut
I thought these sounded like they would be nice, but they were actually dry. Steve thought they were dry too, but still worked his way through them all!
Dove Farm Lemon Zest Cookies (The Incredible Nutshell, Sheffield) –
Steve and I thought these vegan biscuits have a lovely sweet but zingy lemon flavour. They are hard rather than crumbly, and slightly dry, but worth it for the lovely lemon taste. I may buy them again.
Dove Farm Double Chocolate Cookies (The Incredible Nutshell, Sheffield)
Steve and I thought these were yummy. They were quite hard, rather than having a crumbly texture. Although i thought they were drier than the Traidcraft Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies, the taste was lovely.
Hill Biscuits Chocolate Orange Creams (Poundstretcher)
These look a bit like custard creams, but are brown. Their chocolate orange flavour is pretty nice, and very cheap too. Steve quite liked them as well.
Hill Biscuits Orange Creams (Poundstretcher)
Steve and I both liked these orange cream biscuits. They had a nice strength and sweetness of flavour. They were a great cheap price and I may buy them again.
Hill Biscuits Chocolate Creams (Poundstretcher)
Steve and I felt that these chocolate cream flavour vegan biscuits were not as nice as the other flavours in the range. The flavour didn’t seem as strong or tasty.
Asda Free From Oaty Cookies
Steve and I found these to be OK, but both felt they needed more flavour and sweetness.
Fox’s Crinkles Ginger Biscuits
These were too gingery for me as the ginger burned in the back of my mouth, but I seem to be more sensitive to things like that than most people. Steve thought they were nice.
The Foods of Athenry Cookie Shots Orange Brownie Biscuits
I found these mini cookies to be a bit hard and dry, when I would have preferred them more moist and chewy. The orange chocolate taste was nice, and so think would have been nicer with a zingier Orange taste. My O.T Steve thought they were quite nice.
Vegan Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookies (Aldi)
Both Steve and I are very impressed with these cookies. We have bought lots more boxes of them since we discovered them. Like they say, they are chunky, they do not skimp on the chocolate chips, and they are not too dry. We would say they are just as nice as the chocolate cookies from Traidcraft.
Tesco Free From Chocolate Chip Cookies
These cookies are fairly small, but Steve and I both felt that they were tasty, and not too dry for us.
