Aside from spooky décor and creative costumes, Halloween revolves around sweets. Lots of them. But when your diet does not include animal products, making vegan Halloween treats is probably on your list of things to do this fall. This type of activity is perfect for the vegan with a sweet tooth who misses things like chocolate, marshmallow fluff, and cheesecake.
Mouthwatering vegan meals are not just for vegans, though. You might be surprised at how versatile (and tasty) these treats can be. They are all about raw, fresh ingredients with a focus on natural sources of sugar. To top it off, vegan desserts typically have more vitamins, protein, and fiber than their store-bought counterparts.
