Seven (7) recipes for vegan Halloween treats

Hello everyone!

Halloween is just around the corner, and it's time to conjure up some spooky yet delicious treats. Whether you're hosting a Halloween party or simply want to indulge in the festive spirit, these vegan recipes are perfect. They not only cater to a plant-based lifestyle but also offer a unique twist on traditional Halloween treats. So, let's get started!


Creepy-crawly cupcakes


Our first recipe is a classic with a twist: creepy-crawly cupcakes. To make these, we'll start with a moist chocolate base. Instead of using eggs, we'll be using a combination of applesauce and baking powder. This not only adds moisture but also acts as a leavening agent. Once the cupcakes are baked and cooled, it's time to decorate. We'll be using vegan chocolate ganache to create spiderwebs, and for the spiders, we'll be using liquorice laces. The end result? A deliciously creepy cupcake that's as fun to make as it is to eat.

Sugar cookies


Sugar cookies are a classic Halloween treat, and the best part is that they're incredibly versatile. To make them vegan, substitute butter with plant-based margarine or coconut oil and use a flax egg instead of regular eggs. Now, for the fun part - shaping the cookies! You can use Halloween-themed cookie cutters, like bats, pumpkins, or ghosts. Once baked, you can decorate them with vegan icing, adding eyes, fangs, or other spooky details. These cookies not only look great but taste amazing too!



Pumpkin cupcakes


Pumpkin and Halloween go hand in hand, and what better way to enjoy this seasonal ingredient than in a cupcake? For vegan pumpkin cupcakes, you'll need flour, sugar, pumpkin puree, plant-based milk, and some spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix the dry and wet ingredients separately, then combine them to form the batter. Once baked and cooled, you can top them with vegan cream cheese frosting or create pumpkin-shaped decorations using fondant. These cupcakes are sure to be a hit at any Halloween party!

Candy apples


Candy apples are a nostalgic Halloween treat, and the good news is that you can easily make a vegan version. Start by preparing a simple syrup using sugar, water, and a pinch of cream of tartar. Once the syrup reaches the desired consistency, remove it from the heat and add vegan food colouring, if desired. Dip the apples in the syrup, allowing the excess to drip off, and place them on a greased surface to cool and harden. You can even roll them in crushed nuts or sprinkles for added texture and flavour. These vegan candy apples are a delightful combination of sweet and crunchy!



Ghostly popsicles


Next up, we have a treat that's perfect for those warmer Halloween nights: ghostly popsicles. To make these, we'll be using a blend of coconut milk, agave syrup, and vanilla extract. The mixture is then poured into ghost-shaped moulds and frozen. Once set, we'll add the finishing touches. Using vegan chocolate chips, we'll create the eyes and mouth, giving these popsicles their ghostly appearance. Not only are these popsicles refreshing, but they also make for a great Halloween-themed dessert.



Witch's brew punch


No Halloween celebration is complete without a signature drink, and this Witch's brew punch is both eerie and delicious. To make it, combine equal parts of green apple juice, sparkling water, and a citrus soda. Add a few drops of natural green food colouring to enhance the spooky factor. For an extra touch, you can freeze gummy worms or eyeball-shaped ice cubes and add them to the punch bowl. This refreshing drink is perfect for all ages and will be a talking point at your Halloween gathering!



Pumpkin spice energy balls


Our final recipe is a healthier option that's perfect for those looking for a quick energy boost during the Halloween festivities: pumpkin spice energy balls. To make these, we'll start with a base of dates, pumpkin puree, and almond butter. We'll then add a combination of spices, including cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger, to give these balls that quintessential pumpkin spice flavour. Once the mixture is well combined, we'll roll them into bite-sized balls and refrigerate. These energy balls not only taste amazing but also provide a burst of nutrients, making them the perfect snack for a long night of trick-or-treating.



As you can see, being vegan doesn't mean missing out on the fun and flavours of Halloween. With a little creativity and some plant-based ingredients, you can create a feast of spooky treats that everyone will love. So, this Halloween, embrace the vegan twist and enjoy a celebration that's not only good for you but also for the planet. 


I wish you a spooktacular Halloween filled with treats, fun, and, of course, lots of scares. Happy cooking and happy Halloween!
