National Oreo Day is here and it’s time to start the celebration! One of the biggest and most pleasant surprises vegans have when transitioning to the lifestyle is finding out that Oreos are generally considered vegan-friendly. They are an example as to why eating vegan is easier than most people think because of how tasty they are. But you don’t have to eat actual Oreos if you prefer to avoid the ingredients, there are other chocolate sandwich cookies out there and you can always make your own.

These cookies are also amazing because they can be turned into several different types of delicious sweets and treats, and we put together a list of incredible recipes from our Food Monster App for you to enjoy this special food day!
