I am so excited for Easter baking this year! I have so many ideas, flavour combinations and designs in mind, I can’t wait to get started! Starting off with these adorable little vegan easter bunny pastries. Seriously, how cute are they!

Why you’ll love this recipe:

  • Easy to make : Since the recipe only calls for ‘ready to roll’ pastry, it makes this recipe super quick and easy to make.
  • Orange: The best part about the ‘danish’ is the fresh, fruity and citrus flavour of the cream cheese filling. It’s really delicious!
  • Cream filling : To prevent the cream cheese from melting in the oven, add in some flour and sugar to help keep it in shape so you bite into a delicious pillow of cream cheese and it tastes scrumptious!
  • Easter fun : Whip up a batch of these for breakfast and they will sure impress! Great fun for kids and big kids alike to get involved in making.
  • Fun to make : I love making hand held pies and pastries as they are super fun and easy to make. You can get creative by using different Easter shaped cookie cutters, or enjoy a variety of flavours including lemon, lime or even spices such as cinnamon.

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • Puff pastry : Use a ready rolled puff pastry. Make sure it’s vegan (and gluten-free). My favourite is Jus-Rol.
  • Dairy-free cream cheese : Use a good quality vegan cream cheese such as Violife.
  • Plain flour : You don’t need any rise in the filling, so use a plain white or gluten-free plain flour.
  • Sugar : Caster sugar works best, you can also use granulated sugar.
  • Orange Zest : This can be from large oranges or nectarines.
  • Orange flavouring : To get a rich orange flavour, it’s best to use orange extract / orange flavouring.
  • Dairy-free milk : You can use any dairy-free milk, including almond, soya, oat or cashew.

Vegan Easter Bunny Pastries


Easter breakfast just got way more exciting with Vegan orange cream filled puff pastry bunnies holding mini eggs!!! They’re vegan, gluten-free and super easy to make! 


Units Scale


  • 12 sheets of puff pastry (I use Jus-Rol Vegan + Gluten-free Puff Pastry)
  • 130g of dairy-free cream cheese
  • 15g of gluten-free / plain flour (depending if you’re making them gluten-free)
  • 15g of caster sugar + extra for sprinkling
  • 1 large orange (zest only)
  • 1 teaspoon of orange extract / flavouring
  • Dairy-free milk (for the glaze)
  • Vegan mini eggs


Method (pastry)

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C fan and line 2 large baking trays with greaseproof paper.
  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.
  3. Use a bunny shaped cookie cutter to chomp out the shapes and place on the tray lined with greaseproof paper. Use a sharp knife to score a smaller bunny shape in the middle. You don’t want to cut it out but leave an indention into the pastry. Watch the tutorial here. With any left over pastry, cut out two small oval shapes for the ‘arms’. Set aside while you make the orange cream cheese filling.

Method (orange cream cheese)

  1. In a bowl, mix together the cream cheese, flour, sugar, orange zest and orange extract/flavouring. The mixture should be thick and creamy. Transfer the filling mixture into a piping bag and snip off the tip. If you don’t have a piping bag, simply spoon the filling onto the pastry. 
  2. Roll up a small ball of tin foil and place into the middle of the bunny, then press on the ‘arms’. Position the arms over the foil ball. 
  3. Brush some dairy-free milk over the edges of the pastry bunnies. Sprinkle some sugar to help the pastry brown in the oven.
  4. Place the tray into the middle of the oven and bake in pastries for 10-12 minutes or until golden in colour and flakey. 
  5. Once fully baked, remove the tray from the oven and place the other tray in to bake and repeat.
  6. Remove the foil ball and replace it with a vegan mini egg.
  7. Allow to cool slightly, then serve with a dusting of icing sugar.


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.
