Ingredients you’ll need to make these Halloween pies
- Make sure to use a vegan friendly puff pastry. I use the Jus-Rol puff pastry that you can buy from most UK supermarkets. Simply use any puff pastry which you have to hand. If you wanted to make this recipe gluten-free, switch out the pastry for a gluten-free puff pastry version. Jus-Rol make is vegan and gluten-free already!
- I have my own recipe for the most AMAZING vegan Nutella in my award-winning baking book (click here to get your copy, literally the best and only baking book you’ll ever need). Alternatively, you can use shop bought Nutella. My favourite is ‘Natures Store Chocolate & Hazelnut Spread’ or the VEGO Fine Hazelnut Spread. Both can be found in most UK supermarkets and online.
- Fresh banana works best as when the pastry is baking, the moisture from the banana is released and helps flavour the pie even more than dried banana would!
- Any dairy-free milk will work perfect for this recipe. It is used as an ‘egg wash’ alternative.
- Use a sprinkle of white or granulated sugar over the pastry before baking, this will help get a richer golden colour once baked and make them more crispy on the outside.
- I made the eyes using some dairy-free white chocolate buttons and melted vegan Nutella. The buttons I used are the Sainsburys Own Free from Buttons, which I cut to size using the base end of a piping tip. I then used left over Nutella, transferred it into a piping bag and piped on a dot in the middle of each button for the eyes.
- Dust over some icing sugar before serving. Adds an extra layer of sweetness.
How to make Nutella Mummy Hand Pies
These pies are super easy to make, yet look really effective and spooky. You’ll only need a spare 10 minutes to put them together and an extra 12 minutes to bake, thats it! And less to enjoy 🙂 You’ll have an absolute blast baking these delicious, sweet and flakey pies! Enjoy!
- Roll out the pastry
You will begin by lightly rolling out the puff pastry sheet. Doing this will smooth out any lumps or bumps in the pastry. Cut into rectangle shapes, along with some strips for the top of the mummy design. You can cut the pastry with a sharp knife of pizza roller, the roller makes it super fast and easy.
After cutting out the shapes, lay the rectangles on grease-proof paper lined baking trays. The amount of hand pies you get depends on how large or small your mummy pies will be.
Spread or pipe some of the vegan Nutella over the pastries, and place 4 slices of banana on top. Brush the edges of the pastry with dairy-free milk then lay the strips of the pastry over the filling in a zig-zag form. Press the edges down with your fingers to seal everything tightly together. You don’t want the filling oozing out.
Brush dairy-free milk over the pastry along with a sprinkle of sugar (this is optional). This will help the golden colour of the pastry when its baked.
Bake in the oven until the pastry puffs up and is a golden brown colour. Remove from the oven. You can enjoy the pastries warm, or wait until they cool down to add on some chocolate googly eyes.

Nutella Mummy Hand Pies
- Total Time: 30 minutes
- Yield: A dozen
- Diet: Vegan
Vegan Nutella Halloween Mummy Hand-Pies are a fun Halloween treat. They’re delicious, easy to make and you only need a few ingredients! A perfect ‘make ahead treat’ too!
- 2 sheets of ready roll puff pastry (Vegan & gluten-free)
- 6 tablespoons of Vegan Nutella
- 2 medium sized bananas
- 3 tablespoons of dairy-free milk (for the ‘egg wash’)
- 2 tablespoons of caster / granulated sugar
- 1 packet of dairy-free white chocolate buttons
- 2 tablespoons of icing sugar (dusting)
- Pre-heat oven to 180°C fan and line 2 baking trays with grease-proof paper.
- Unroll the pastry sheets leaving in the baking paper. Use a rolling pin to slightly flatten out any wrinkles in the pastry.
- Using a sharp knife or pizza roller, cut one and a half of the other pastry sheet into rectangles (approximately 4 inches by 2.5 inches). Cut the remaining half of the pastry sheet into long, thin strips. Roll out the scraps to cut out a few more shapes.
- Transfer the pastry rectangles to the refrigerator for 5 minutes.
- Transfer the vegan Nutella into a piping bag and pipe some into the middle of each pastry rectangle. You can also use a spoon and spread it on. Top with some thin slices of fresh banana.
- Brush some dairy-free milk around the edge of the pastry, this will help the pastry stick. Tip: Don’t add too much filling or it will ooze out when baking.
- Lay the strips of pastry over the filling in a zig-zag pattern, creating a ‘mummy’ effect. Repeat for all of the pies. Make sure to use your finger to press the strips down so that they don’t lift when they bake & puff up in the oven.
- Brush the pastry with some dairy-free milk and sprinkle over some sugar. This will help the browning of the pastry.
- It’s best to bake the pies a tray at a time as the pastry will puff up. I like to bake 6 on a tray at a time. Place into the middle of the pre-heated oven and bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden in colour and the pastry is flakey.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly on the tray then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
- If your white chocolate buttons are too big, simply use the base of a piping tip, press it down on top of the button to cut then into a smaller circle shape.
- Use left over Nutella in a piping bag and pipe on a small dot to the middle of each eye.
- Make sure the pastry and filling is cold before adding on the eyes. If the pastry or filling is still hot / warm, it’ll melt the chocolate eyes. Place on the eyes and sprinkle the pastries with some icing sugar (optional).
- Serve at room temperature or warm.
To store: Store the pastry mummies in a sealed container in the fridge, allow to come to room temperature before enjoying. Best served day of making. Best eaten 2 days of making.
