Why you’ll love these puff pastry flowers

There are just so many reasons to love these easy Nutella puff pastry flowers. Being so quick means you can make them any time, even first thing in the morning for breakfast or brunch. You can even make them in advance, the night before and fill them with whatever you fancy.

  1. They’re Vegan : I used a vegan puff pastry from JusRoll, along with vegan friendly Nutella spread by Natures Store. If you are unable to find vegan Nutella where you are based, you can make you own!!! I have the BEST Homemade Vegan Nutella in my award-winning book -The Little Book of Vegan Bakes’. Get your copy here.
  2. Easily made gluten-free : Did you know you can get vegan AND gluten-free puff pastry! I use JusRoll Gluten-free Vegan Puff Pastry which works a dream! I also used it for my Vegan Strawberry Danish recipe.
  3. The texture: The pastry is super crisp and flakey, while the ‘Nutella’ filling is soft and creamy, the perfect combination!
  4. The flavour : You can’t beat pastry with ‘Nutella’. The hazelnut shines through along with the chocolate! It’s truly scrumptious! They’re not sickly sweet which makes them perfect for breakfast / brunch.
  5. They stay crisp : The thing i love most about puff pastry is that it stays crisp! To save on time, you can make the pastry flower the day before and fill them before serving. The dairy-free glaze and the light scattering of sugar helps with the browning and also with the crispness.

How to make Nutella Puff Pastry Flowers

Full recipe and method is at the bottom of this post in the recipe card.

  1. Prepare the pastry

    Allow the pastry to come to room temperature for 5 minutes before rolling out, this will make it easier to work with. Roll out the pastry to flatten any lumps or bumps. Use a flower shaped cookie cutter to chomp out the shapes and place on grease proof paper. Line a cupcake tin with cupcake cases. Lay the pastry flower into the case, pressing it down slightly.

  2. Glaze the pastry

    Use a food grade brush, brush dairy-free milk over the pastry and sprinkle over the sugar.

  3. Bake the pastry

    Bake the pastry flowers in the oven until crisp and golden brown in colour. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

  4. Vegan nutella and hazelnuts

    Fill a piping bag with vegan ‘Nutella’ and pipe into the middle of the flowers. Add hazelnuts into a blender and blitz. Sprinkle over the ‘Nutella’ to stick.

  5. Serve

    Serve with a sprinkle over icing sugar (optional).

Puff Pastry Flowers Tips & Tricks

  • Make sure to check your ingredients are vegan : It’s always worth triple checking your pastry to avoid picking up a non-vegan product. Same goes with the ‘Nutella’, make sure its a vegan friendly cocoa Hazelnut spread!
  • Work quickly: Puff pastry does tend to thaw and soften quite quickly. You’ll get a better rise from pastry that stays cold.
  • Don’t skip the sugar coating: The crisp and crunchy sugar on top adds sweetness, a delicious crunch and also helps to colour the pastry golden!
  • Chill them: Chilling the puff pastry twists in the freezer for 10 minutes before baking, helps them to keep their shape better.
  • Store: To keep them fresh, make sure to store them in a sealed container in the fridge and enjoy within 2 days of making. After a few days, the pastry will loose it’s crispness.

Vegan Nutella Puff Pastry Flowers


Description

These Vegan Nutella Puff Pastry Flowers are the perfect treat for Valentines Day breakfast or just a delicious snack. With just 5 ingredients, you’ll become addicted to these little pastries. I have warned you! 


Ingredients

Units Scale

Ingredients 

  • 1 sheet of ready-rolled vegan puff pastry (Use vegan + gluten-free to make it coeliac friendly)
  • 2 tablespoons of dairy-free milk (you can use any dairy-free milk)
  • 2 tablespoons of granulated / caster sugar
  • 1 jar of Vegan friendly ‘Nutella’ chocolate hazelnut spread
  • 10g of hazelnuts
  • 1 tablespoon of icing sugar (for dusting)

Instructions

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C fan and 2 cupcake tins with cupcake liners/ cases.
  2. Unroll the pastry sheet leaving the baking paper underneath. This will prevent sticking. Use a rolling pin to slightly flatten out any wrinkles in the pastry. Dust over some plain flour if the pastry is too sticky (if you’re making them gluten-free, use a gluten-free flour blend!).
  3. Use a flower shaped cookie cutter to chomp out the shapes and press into the cupcake tin, creating a cup shape. Watch my video tutorial here
  4. Using a food grade brush, brush dairy-free milk over the pastry flowers and sprinkle over the sugar. This will help turn the pastry golden brown.
  5. Bake in the middle of the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown in colour. It might take 5 minutes or so longer depending on your puff pastry, so just keep an eye on them! Don’t let them burn!
  6. Once golden in colour, remove the tin from the oven, lift out the pastry flowers and place on a wire rack. I like to leave them in the cases while they cool.
  7. Once the pastry is cool, transfer a few tablespoons of vegan Nutella into a piping bag and snip off the tip (you can even spoon it in using regular spoons). Fill the middle of the puff pastry flower with some of the chocolate spread. 
  8. In a small blender, add the hazelnuts, whizz them up then sprinkle over the pastries.
  9. To finish them off, serve with a light dusting of icing sugar (this is optional).
  10. Serve and enjoy! 

Notes

To store: Store the pastries in a sealed container in the fridge, allow to come to room temperature before enjoying. Best enjoyed within 2 days of making.

    If I use regular puff pastry will I need to brush with milk? Also about what size is the flower cookie cutter? Thank you
