Are English Muffins Vegan? (Many Are Not, Here’s Why…)


They look like simple pieces of bread, but for some reason, most English Muffins are not vegan.

Take one of the most popular brands, Bays, and let’s look at the ingredients in their sourdough English muffins:

 Bleached Wheat Flour, Water…Dry Whole Milk, Butter, Lactic Acid

These are typical ingredients.

Almost every brand you’ll find in most stores has some form of milk or butter.

But there’s good new…vegan English muffins are very easy to make, and you’ll save money as well.

Simple Vegan English Muffin Recipes

I’ve tried all 3 of these vegan English muffin recipes and they all turn out just about the same, but it’s nice to have different options that might fit the ingredients you have on hand:

  1. A Virtual Vegan’s Homemade English Muffins
  2. Living Vegan’s Homemade English Muffins
  3. The Spruce Eat’s Dairy-Free English Muffins

Once you’re used to making them, it only takes 20-30 minutes to make a batch that will last you for a week or so.
