Best Vegan Biscuits
What We Love: Annie’s Flaky Biscuits are certified organic but all we know is that they taste like the nostalgic biscuits you love. With ingredients you can feel good about, and a satisfying nutrition profile (with fat and salt to give you that full on biscuit taste/feel) but 3 grams of protein to help keep you satiated, Annie’s Ready to Bake Biscuits are great for breakfast, dinner, or celebratory meals. Annie’s Ready to Bake Flaky Biscuits are layered with soft, flaky bread and encapsulated in a crisp, biscuit-like outside.
Considerations: With 570mg sodium per biscuit, Annie’s Ready to Bake Flaky Biscuits are higher in sodium – as are any type of prepared bread item. So from a nutrition standpoint, it likely wouldn’t be advantageous to consume multiple vegan biscuits everyday, certainly having them every so often can definitely fit into a lifestyle – and may help you appreciate them even more!
What We Love: Similar to Annie’s Flaky vegan biscuits, Immaculate Baking’s biscuits are vegan and organic. Also similarly are the ingredients and nutritional profile. Immaculate’s biscuits are a bit less flaky but tend to have a more “buttery” flavor in our opinion. Both vegan biscuits brown evenly and crisply while the Annie’s biscuits rise a bit more during baking but once cooled, Annie’s and Immaculate Baking’s vegan biscuits are comparable in size and taste. Immaculate Baking is a smaller company and perhaps you choose to support a smaller company but either way, you’ll end up with tasty vegan biscuits!
Considerations: Both Annie’s and Immaculate Baking’s vegan biscuits contain palm oil and while neither brand specifies the source (at time of publication) or whether the palm oil is sustainably sourced, but with reputable brands, we hope that’s the case. It’s also important to think about how often you’d be consuming the vegan biscuits as palm oil is *everywhere* and impossible to avoid (there is a good reason why manufacturer’s choose to use it often). It’s also important to note that we eat for many different reasons and sometimes choosing the vegan biscuit with palm oil is a better choice for us than an alternative. All that to say, Immaculate Baking Organic Biscuits and Annie’s Ready to Bake Flaky Biscuits are vegan and can be a great biscuit choice.
