Alternative Baking Company, Inc.® is dedicated to helping make the dairy and meat industries obsolete by providing gourmet-quality vegan alternatives to traditional baked goods. Oh, yes, and we're having fun in the process! We have been open for 21 years, found in 5,000 stores across the United States, and voted "Best Vegan Cookie" by VegNews. We have 12 Vegan cookies and 5 Gluten Free cookies.

Our cookies look and taste like the very best traditionally-made cookies - no kidding! -- but contain no dairy, no eggs, no trans fats, no hydrogenated oils, no cholesterol, no animal ingredients, no artificial ingredients, and no refined sugar. We use organic flour, organic sugar, as well as other premium, natural ingredients and make our cookies in small, handmade batches. The result is a soft and chewy cookie that is both decadently good and good for you.

Our cookies are available in thousands of health food stores across the country and also in many mainstream grocery stores, convenience stores, and coffee shops. We are especially proud of our many mainstream customers since our success with them is, in our opinion, the best evidence that we are succeeding with our mission.

We figure it may take a few more years before our cookies are available in every store on the planet and the dairy/meat industry utterly (pun intended) capitulates. Until then, we've decided to let you order our products directly via the web!
