For many years, Back to Nature used a small amount of milk in some of their cookies. But this year, the company went completely plant-based. They no longer use any dairy or animal-based ingredients (except honey in a few products), which means they discontinued some varieties, but now offer nearly 20 types of dairy-free Back to Nature Cookies.
Back to Nature Goes Plant-Based for Crunchy & Chewy Cookie Fans
All of the Back to Nature Cookies are made with recipes that are as close as you can get to homemade in a box. For example, their Chocolate Chunk Cookies are made simply with flour, dairy-free chocolate chips, cane sugar, oil, leavener (like baking soda), brown rice syrup, and sea salt. They don’t use any additives or “questionable” ingredients.
Below is a quick list of the plant-based Back to Nature Cookies. They’re all wheat-based, and most contain soy lecithin. I’ve noted the ones which are soy-free. A couple contain peanuts (the obvious ones), but this line is primarily made without nuts. Plant-based means Back to Nature Cookies are now made without any eggs and dairy, but they do have ‘may contain’ statements for milk and other top allergens (see the packaging for details), since they are produced in a shared facility.
