Which Girl Scout Cookies are Vegan?
It’s that time of year again. Where you want to indulge and help support a cause at the same time. Girl Scout Cookies have been one of America’s favorite seasonal snacks, but with the emergence of more and more Americans entering a vegan diet, they’ve had to switch up their ingredients in some cookies more than normal. While most of their cookies have been filled full of dairy and eggs, the new vegan may have trouble figuring out what to order if they’re supporting a vegan cause and avoiding animal products altogether (some vegans are okay with eggs, or ingredients processed, but they’re normally flagged as liberal vegans or just vegetarians). In this guide, we’ll give you some options that you can choose from the Girl Scout Cookie menu that have no animal products.
Peanut Butter Cookies (a.k.a. Peanut Butter Patties)
These vanilla wafer cookies are filled with peanut butter and then coated in chocolate. However, it’s important to know that depending on the type of peanut butter cookie manufacturer, you may get one that contains milk. Make sure that your box is made by ABC Bakers and not Little Brownie Bakers, as the second one contains milk. You can find out what the primary baker is for your local girl scout council. You can make s’mores out of them by slapping a Dandies marshmallow (also vegan) and tossing them in the microwave for a few seconds.
Don’t Forget Thin Mints
These tasty minty morsels are America’s most popular and most sold cookies that are provided by the girl scouts. What’s even better? No matter whether it’s Little Brownie Bakers or ABC Bakers, these cookies have always been 100 percent vegan and contain no milk or dairy in them. The most popular way to eat them is with hot cocoa or mocha coffee.
You’re Welcome – No… Thanks-A-Lot!
A shortbread cookie that is also completely vegan-friendly no matter what company makes them, these cookies are inscribed with the words “Thank You” in numerous languages, and their bottoms are dipped in fudge in order to provide the perfect combination of shortbread and chocolate.
These shortbread cookies have a little bit of lemon flavor that are half-coated in lemon icing. They’re an excellent snack for the summer, or they can be crushed and mixed into a pie crust for an amazing lemon meringue pie (of course you can make vegan meringue in order to make your pie vegan). Other than that, they’re an excellent choice to sip on some lemonade and sit in the summer sun as well for a light and crispy treat.
