A delicious homemade biscuit with yummy vegan chocolate chips. We love to make these Vegan Chocolate Chip Shortbread on lazy afternoons at home, or in preparation for Easter in fun, bunny shapes.
We use many zero waste and plastic free ingredients in these shortbread biscuits. Everything that goes into them is vegan too.

About the Ingredients
When it comes to choosing ingredients for our Vegan Chocolate Chip Shortbread, we like to choose the items with the lowest carbon footprint and the least packaging waste.
Plastic Free Baking
There are many ways to make your home baking plastic free, waste free or more eco conscious. For these biscuits, we like to use zero waste and plastic free flour and sugar from local zero waste stores in Essex.
Find the ones we shop at (and a cheeky discount code!) on this blog: 3 Zero Waste Shops in Essex.
We also use second hand cookie cutters to reduce our demand for single use plastic. If you can’t find any cookie cutters you like second hand, try non plastic cutters like these stainless steel ones or other silicon baking tools.
Vegan Chocolate Chips
You are now spoilt for choice when it comes to finding vegan chocolate. We prefer dark chocolate chips fo these biscuits and we love to shop for them plastic free when possible too.
Your local Essex refill store will likely have some chocolate chips for sale. Finding zero waste and vegan can sometimes be a bit more challenging but the options are growing fast.
If you really want a strong chocolate flavour, swap out the chocolate chips for these raw cacao nibs instead!
Alternatively, you can choose from a large selection of vegan chocolate online for home delivery at The Vegan Kind Supermarket.
