As much as I love the shop-bought versions of these biscuits, you just cannot beat the taste of homemade.
Below, I share 9 vegan British biscuits recipes for some of the most popular classics in the UK.
All of them are suitable for egg and dairy allergy sufferers too, naturally.
9 recipes to recreate your favourite British Biscuits
1. Custard Creams
These have to be at the top of the list, the classic Custard Creams.
I created these shapes using the top of a Colman’s mustard powder lid, which FYI works very well.
The custard-y filling uses actual custard powder which is naturally vegan-friendly.
2. Bourbon Biscuits
I created these biscuits using a special cookie cutter I found online, but all you need is a rectangular shape cutter and a fork to poke to holes in top!
These are more chocolate-y than the original and therefore better. In my humble opinion.

5. Jammie Dodgers
Jammie Dodgers are already vegan BUT they’re so much fun to make and homemade always tastes better, so give these a try instead!

6. Vegan Digestives
Mel from A Virtual Vegan shares this wholesome recipe for the classic Digestive biscuit, perfect for dunking into a cup of tea.
7. Viennese Whirls
My favourite on the list. These shortbread biscuit halves are sandwiched together by a dollop of vegan buttercream and jam. Heavenly!
8. Shortbread Biscuits
You can’t beat a classic shortbread biscuit. This recipe is so easy and easy to turn into Garibaldi biscuits too (just add chopped raisins/sultanas).
9. Jaffa Cakes
I left this one until last, so it could hide from those who refuse to accept Jaffa cakes in the category of “biscuits”.
This recipe comes from Ms Cupcake’s cookbook.
