There are a few brands of palm-oil-free vegan crackers. But an alternative is to make your own vegan crackers. Ideal to serve with crudities or vegan cheese, the problem is that most brands contain palm oil, which is harming the habitats of orangutans and other endangered creatures. There is no such thing as sustainable palm oil. Making your own crackers also avoids plastic packaging (just ensure you store these in an airtight container). Also see the post on vegan Graham crackers (often used to make the bases for vegan cheesecakes).
These moreish easy vegan crackers (Vegan on Board) cut out the palm oil and plastic packaging. Made with flour, olive oil and warm water, they also have a little salt and sugar. Use three times as much fresh herbs as dried, these ones include rosemary in the dough. Keep fresh dough away from pets.
Crackers are one of the main foods in supermarkets that tends to have palm oil. So if buying, look for brands that are made with olive oil instead. If you make your own, keep them in an airtight container to stop them drying out (never feed dry foods like crackers nor fatty foods like butter to garden birds or wildfowl, as they can choke and affect insulation/waterproofing of feathers).
These zero waste sourdough crackers (Vegan on Board) are not just vegan and free from palm oil (and plastic packaging). But they are made using leftover ingredients from making sourdough bread, so good to reduce food waste too. The tangy taste from the sourdough starter is added to olive oil for a rich taste, salt and sugar. You can also add optional dried herbs, black pepper, sea salt or seeds.
