Vegan Vampire Cupcakes

Last Updated: April 14, 2024

Halloween can be a more difficult holiday than others if you’re vegan. All around us, there’s milk chocolate, caramel, and other non-vegan treats. But you can prepare yourself with tasty treats made at home!

Vampire Bite Vegan Cupcakes

Vampire bite cupcakes are perfect for Halloween or watching your favourite scary movies! These cupcakes are filled with strawberry jam to scare everyone that takes a bite.

These vampire cupcakes are an ode to beloved vampires. Keep simple and only did little bite marks – I feel they’re almost scarier that way. People will wonder, what’s that inside the cupcakes?

Blood? Nah, it’s just strawberry jam. Strawberry Chia Jam is in the middle of these vampire cupcakes and when you take a bite, all the strawberry goodness comes out too! Using chia jam rather than store-bought brands will take the high fructose corn syrup out of this recipe.

  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 c all-purpose flour
