Baking vegan cakes can be frowned upon, sometimes it’s seen as an impossible task if your recipe doesn’t involve certain ingredients. However, vegan baking is being more recognized as more egg/honey substitutes become available. It might take a bit of practice, or reading over the method a few times, but don’t let that stop you!
Bringing these out to the party will certainly turn some heads, and the smell is sure to awaken even the fussiest of vampires. You can get creative with your decorations and it is a fun way to enjoy your favorite dessert.

Guacamole is one of the most essential of them all, and one of life’s most simple pleasures is how it doesn’t take long to prepare but tastes delightful. It can be found in many grocery stores near you, but it’s important to check the ingredients before buying as some do contain milk.

Stuffed Mushroom Eyeballs
All this sugar will have you up all night until there are no more scary films to watch, so we’ve got to balance it a bit. Just because something is healthier, doesn’t mean it can’t be exciting or creative, which is why stuffed mushroom eyeballs are such a fun idea. You can add in other healthy components and mix it all up to your liking.
I’m not telling you to hand these out to trick or treaters, but once they catch onto the delectable aroma, it might be time to exchange the candy. These mushroom eyeballs can be prepped and cooked in 30 minutes, making them a great idea when you’re on the clock.
If you’ve got kids, this is also a fun way of getting them to join in and eat a nutritious but interesting appetizer.
In between all the sugary delights, it’s good to bring in a healthier choice. Pies are full of goodness and when mixed with different veggies, taste even better. You can make pies with your favorite meat-free chunks or opt for a vegetable pie, either way, you may not have any leftovers!
If the puff pastry doesn’t tempt you, maybe the assortment of potatoes, mushrooms, and broccoli will. Packed with nutrients and spices, you’ll get a real boost with this inexpensive and easy recipe. If you’re at a party and looking for something more savory, this pie is a great choice.
There is no other way to round off this list of Halloween foods than with a traditional pumpkin pie. Halloween wouldn’t be the same without it and you can even add in extra sweetness with some vegan whipped cream. There is plenty to go around and anyone who tries some will be astounded that desserts can taste just as good while being vegan.
