8 Women-Owned Vegan Bakeries That Ship Nationwide

By Lezlie Mitchell, Best of Vegan Editor, Author and Blogger

If there’s one thing that I love, it’s dessert. In fact, it is probably my favorite meal of the day. My four-year-old daughter has inherited the sweet gene, as I like to call it, and the two of us personally taste-tested this list of women-owned vegan bakeries for you. Each time we finished a cookie we high-fived and said “girl power”, no joke (okay, half-joking). On a serious note, these talented bakeries also ship their goods nationwide. So, browse the list and support a delicious women-owned business, or two.

I must admit I was excited to try Southern Roots by Cara Pitts since it’s from my hometown of San Antonio, TX. We tried the Double Chocolate Chip and it did not disappoint. If the rest of the selection is as tasty as this cookie was, Southern Roots will be firmly planted for years to come.

Yvonne’s Vegan Kitchen had been on my radar for years since she’s located in the Los Angeles area. After trying her masterfully crafted products, I only wished I tried them sooner. Yvonne Ardestani is a gifted artist and her passion for vegan cuisine shines through each bite. She has a beautiful selection of baked goods as well as some of the best vegan cheese on the market. I dare you to find a better one than her Black Truffle Goatless Cheese.

Founder and Baker of The Naughty Cookie, Jessica Motes, sums her goods up best, “Our cookies may look naughty on the outside but we promise on the inside they’re on their sweetest behavior (because they’re cruelty-free)!” I’d also add that these cookies will win any sweet tooth over, vegan or not. Another plus is the packaging is cool if you are looking to send sweets as a gift.

Eleanor’s Favorite: Ooey Gooey S’mores Cookie

Jennifer Thai has created a solid selection of allergy-friendly vegan cookies through her bakery, Awesome Bites Co. I love that her motivation was finding a solution for her young daughter’s allergies. We tried her unique flavors and enjoyed each one. The only complaint from my daughter is that we didn’t eat her muffins too.

Maya’s Cookies is not only woman-owned but also America’s #1 Black-Owned gourmet vegan cookie company. Maya Madsen has perfected vegan cookies, with awards to prove it. Each cookie is soft, chewy, and perfectly sweet. You honestly can’t go wrong with any flavor you choose, it was hard for my daughter and me to choose a favorite. The packaging is lovely and will make any sweet lover smile.

Giselle Shah, Founder & Creator of Giselle’s Vegan Kitchen is an ethical vegan who shares that she started her company because she wanted a place where she was comfortable with every ingredient in her dessert. Her focus is the combination of deliciousness and health and I would add beauty to the equation. All of the ingredients used are organic, and I personally appreciate that they are low glycemic. These goods will satisfy your sweet tooth but satiate as well.

A quarter-pound vegan cookie? Say no more. We had to try.

After finishing the entire pink box, we decided we believe in it too. These cookies are delicious.

We love to support entrepreneurs and we love to support women. This time and space we find ourselves living in have created the need for goods to be delivered.
