Eat, shriek, and be scary with these Healthy Halloween Toast recipes! Each fun toast variety is totally vegan, gluten-free, and sure to bring smiles and Halloween fun into your kitchen.
I was working in my lab late one night...when I dreamed up these Healthy Halloween Toast recipes! Two of my favorite things in the whole world are holidays and food, so when I get a chance to combine the two, I go all out. These spooky toast varieties absolutely delight my kids (and me too, of course!), and they're all filling and nutritious. I've got ghosts, mummies, pumpkins, spider webs...a whole host of haunted friends to enjoy! For recipes like this one I love visiting Sprouts. They have all of my favorite pantry staples and fun seasonal products and flavors! Their bulk department is basically my happy place...I love that I can stock up on essentials or scoop just what I need for a recipe!
Ghost Toast: Vegan Halloween Toast with Cream Cheese
I said these recipes are "no waste," and I meant it! I've included the ways I use each part of the cut out bread so nothing gets thrown away. This Ghost Toast is not only fun to say, it's absolutely delicious to eat. I toast the cut out ghost from the grilled cheeses, then spread it with Kite Hill cream cheese (my favorite!). Raisins and vegan chocolate chips make for the perfect howling mouth and spooky eyes, but you could also use little slices of berries, chopped dates, or dollops of Homemade Vegan Nutella! I grab raisins from the bulk bins at Sprouts and keep them stored in a jar at home...easy as can be!
Spider Web Toast with Vegan Nutella
This is the only time I'll allow spider webs in my kitchen! This Sweet Spider Web Toast is as much fun to make as it is to eat, which is really saying something...because it's absolutely delicious! I made it with my Healthy Homemade Vegan Nutella, which is totally free of refined sugar, and the web is made with Cashew Vanilla Icing. I also have a Vegan Vanilla Cinnamon Fruit Dip that would work really well as spider webs drizzled onto toast! Our sweet little spider friends are made with dates cut in half. I used broken-up pretzel pieces for the legs!
Gluten-Free Pumpkin Hummus Toast & Bell Pepper Leaves
It's pumpkin season, after all! I couldn't do a Halloween-themed post without some pumpkin in it. This one is really simple to make: just use a pumpkin cookie cutter to cut out a pumpkin, spread a full slice of bread with Garlic Pumpkin Hummus, and place the pumpkin-hole slice overtop! Of course, we aren't wasting any bread here, so I like to keep the pumpkin-shaped cutout and spread that with hummus, too. A little piece of crust makes the perfect stem! You could also make this recipe with my Maple Roasted Butternut Squash Hummus or Roasted Sweet Pepper Hummus. Using bell peppers as leaves will have you in disbeLEAF, it's so good! I used slices of red, orange, and yellow bell peppers to create autumnal leaves on oval-shaped slices of toast. It's a little sweet, super crunchy, and such a satisfying snack! The orange of my Pumpkin Garlic Hummus is the perfect background for these sweet leafy details and I love how it all tastes together. So satisfying!
Vegan Mummies & Spider Webs on Pizza Toast
When I say the magic words "pizza toast," my kids come sprinting to the kitchen. I'm convinced they could eat this toast all day long...and all year round, too! I created these creepy-crawly spiders out of olives. The body is made from halved olives, then I did thinner slices for the legs. Easy as can be! You could use green olives for the body to make it even creepier. This mummy recipe was too good to keep under wraps! (Okay, that was the last one...I PROMISE I'm done with the Halloween puns now!) This one is a mummy with little olive eyes peeking out of Vegan Mozzarella Cheese wraps.
All of these fun Halloween Toast recipes are vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, and made without refined sugar. I believe everyone should get to have fun, delicious food no matter their diet or allergies! If you make these spooky themed toasts, please tag me on Instagram so I can see your creations, and leave a review below letting me know which one you make! Finally, a big, big thank you to Sprouts for sponsoring this post. I'm a regular at Sprouts and am so thrilled to work with them!
