Mofo #19 - Halloween Goodies


I love Halloween. I've seen some amazing vegan goodies online that I thought I'd share. When I buy sweets, I tend to pick Oreos, Skittles, Sour Patch Kids, or Back to Nature peanut butter cookies.

- Candy corn: homemade and store-bought
- Cookies: cute confetti toppings
- Candied apples: chocolate-dipped and peanut butter caramel
- Cake: cat cake pops and pumpkin cupcakes
- Marshmallows: pumpkin spice

I didn't buy any of those things, but I did make oatmeal, peanut butter, and chocolate chip cookies. I baked mine a couple minutes longer than the recipe called for, because they were undercooked after only 12 mins. I used two flax "eggs" and Earth Balance margarine to veganize the recipe (1 flax egg = 1 Tbs milled flax + 3 Tbs water, whisk until thick). I think the flax eggs are the reason the batter didn't completely cook in 12 mins.


On a Halloween-themed side note, I loved this PostSecret card from today.



  1. I love halloween too, I've had so much fun baking stuff & carving pumpkins this year!

  2. I haven't celebrated Halloween since I was a kid but I'd love to make more of a big deal out of it next year!

  3. I wish I had carved pumpkins! I haven't done that in forever and I never think of it until I see people uploading photos to fb/blogs.
