Don’t get me wrong, I’m not mad about it. Every year, when the weather cools down, my excitement rises.

After all, there are few better holidays than Halloween. Maybe none. 

It’s the one night of the year when everyone gets to “run amok.”

Fortunately, that doesn’t necessarily have to be unhealthy.

These vegan Halloween cookies can keep you on track. So, let’s get into the spirit of things!

1. Vegan Halloween Cookies

Chewy and chocolatey with googly candy eyes. What more could you want from your Halloween cookies?! 

These soft, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate cookies have it all. They taste incredible, are easy to make, and look wonderfully festive.

Most people will never even realize they’re vegan.

2. Vegan Pumpkin Sugar Cookies

Who wants boring old sugar cookies when you can have pumpkin ones instead? Not me! Bring on the pumpkins! 

Seriously, though, these are so good. They’re incredibly fluffy, warm, rich, and delectable. (With or without the optional icing.)

If pumpkin spice is your fall flavor of choice, these are the cookies for you.

3. Healthy Halloween Cookies

Cookies made from chickpeas? No, thank you! But wait!

These are surprisingly scrumptious. You won’t taste the chickpeas. Instead, you get notes of banana, maple syrup, and peanut butter. 

Plus, the kiddos will love them because they’re green, chewy, and kind of creepy.

*Note: The cookies are 100% vegan. However, be sure you pick up vegan-friendly food coloring to go with them. (Spinach works as a green coloring agent, too.)

4. Peanut Butter Spider Cookies

These spider cookies are too stinking cute to be spooky. And they’re so easy to make.

You can whip them up (decorations and all) in less than 30 minutes! 

You need four ingredients for the cookies themselves. (Peanut butter, sugar, aquafaba, and salt.)

Then, you add a vegan peanut butter cup to each one. 

Draw webs in the cookies with a toothpick and make spider legs with melted chocolate. Add candy eyes or create your own from almonds. 

It doesn’t get much simpler (or more adorable) than that.

5. Soft and Chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Nearly everything you need to know about these cookies is in the name.

They’re soft; they’re chewy; they’re full of pumpkin flavor and gooey chocolate chunks.

So what exactly did the name leave out? 

Just a few things, including: 

  • Their warm, rich, intricate spiciness
  • How easy they are to make
  • How buttery (vegan butter!) they are

That name also can’t describe how gooey the chocolate chunks are when they’re ready.

Don’t take my word for it. Go try them for yourself for the full effect.

6. Mummy Cookies

I’m not sure if it’s the texture or the taste. However, these always remind me a little of Fudge Stripe cookies.

It could be the cookies I use, too. I go for vegan shortbread instead of sugar.

Either way, these are adorable, fudgy, and ideal for Halloween. I mean, come on! They’re little mummies! What could be cuter than that?

7. Witch Finger Cookies

You’ve probably seen witch finger breadsticks before. These are the cookie versions of that.

Although with some vegan food coloring, they could be monster fingers, too!

They’re lightly sweet, crumbly, and have just a hint of mintiness.

Add sliced almonds or chocolate chips for ‘nails,’ and they’re ready to serve.

8. Aquafaba Meringues

These light, airy meringues are a delightful Halloween treat. They look just like little ghosts and are wonderfully fluffy. 

You make them with just five simple ingredients.

Though they do take a bit of time to whip up, they’re worth it. Everyone will go nuts for them. 

9. Chewy Vegan Pumpkin Spice Sugar Cookies

Looking at these cookies can be deceiving. They’re so thin, so most people think they’re super crunchy.

It’s just the opposite, though. These are some of the chewiest cookies you’ll ever try. 

They’re like pumpkin fudge, only in cookie form. The dusting of sugar on top gives them a lovely, sparkling appearance.

Plus, there’s plenty of pumpkin spice flavor in every bite. 

Don’t make the mistake of trying to dip them, though.

I know they look like the perfect cookie for dipping. However, they’re so moist and chewy that they’ll likely fall apart when dipped.

10. Halloween Monster Cookies

These shiny, multicolored cookies remind me of The Nightmare Before Christmas.

I think it’s their patchwork design, as it reminds me of Sally.

They aren’t overly sweet and have an interesting array of flavors. I’ll be honest, I like them more for their look than their taste.

Even so, they aren’t bad at all, and the kids will devour them.

And they’re healthy! So they’re an easy way to get some nutrients into the kiddos.

11. Halloween Candy Cookies

At first glance, these may not look Halloween-worthy. However, you make them with all your kid’s leftover Halloween candy! 

They’re soft, chewy, and loaded with ooey-gooey candy. 

*Note: Remember to use your favorite vegan egg substitute for the egg in this recipe. Also, be sure the candies you’re adding are vegan-friendly.

12. Chocolate Sugar Cookie Bats

In the mood for chocolate overload? These spooky bats can satisfy that craving!

They taste (and feel) just like any chocolate sugar cookie you’d make. 

However, these have unique bat shapes perfect for Halloween. (Or a Batman-themed birthday party!)

Get your kids in on the fun. Let them cut out the shapes and add the candy eyes!

13. Spooky Vegan Halloween Cookies

These crumbly cookies are almost too silly-looking to be scary.

Still, if you have better decorating skills than me, you can make them look however you want.

They’re healthy, yummy oatmeal cookies topped with cashew frosting. To that, you add whatever decorations you like best. 

Turn them into monsters, spiders, mummies, etc. 

Cute or creepy, these little cookies are undoubtedly delicious.
