Harry Potter Broom Pastries
Are these not the cutest broomstick pastries? Crisp, flakey puff pastry coated in cinnamon sugar, baked to perfection with a delicious cookie butter and a vegan ‘Nutella’ filling.
I watched Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone the other day and was inspired by the flying lesson scene to make these delicious little treats. I am the biggest Harry Potter fan, and had such fun making this recipe. If you love Harry Potter and have a soft spot for themed / spooky baking… you’ll love these! If you do love Harry Potter, you will LOVE my Vegan Sorting Hat Cupcakes!

Ingredients you’ll need
These broomstick pastries only require a few simple ingredients, mot of which you may already have in your kitchen cupboard / pantry! You can also find the full written recipe, ingredients list and method in the recipe card at the bottom of the page.
- Puff pastry : You want to use a vegan friendly puff pastry. My favourite is the Vegan and gluten-free puff pastry sheets from JusRol, but this depends on where you live as I’m not sure this is stocked in all countries. Puff pastry can be found down the chilled isle of most supermarkets. You can easily make this recipe gluten-free by using a gluten-free pastry (also make sure the fillings you use are gluten-free too!).
- Dairy-free milk: The milk is brushed over the pastries to help with browning in the oven. It also helps the pastry crips up too. You can use any dairy-free milk including soya, oat, almond and cashew for example.
- Sugar : The sugar is sprinkled over the top of the milk glaze before baking. This helps with the golden colour and really helps to crisp up the top of the pastries when baked. You can use fine white caster sugar or white granulated sugar for even more crunch.
- Cinnamon : This is an added extra, but to give the pastries a-little more flavour, sprinkle some ground cinnamon in the sugar to make a delicious spiced cinnamon sugar.
- Spread : I opted for two different fillings for my broomsticks, Biscoff ‘cookie butter’ spread and a vegan friendly ‘Nutella’. You could also use a fruity jam or even go savoury with some pesto and vegan cheese!
- Pretzel sticks : Use some long pretzel sticks or the broom handle. If you don’t have or can’t find the pretzels, you can use some chocolate
Additional filling ideas:
If you don’t want to make these Harry Potter Broom Pastries with sweet cookie butter or chocolate spread , you can also fill these pastries with:
- Vegan friendly pesto and cheese for a savoury snack.
- Fresh strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, or blueberries with a vegan cream cheese filling.
- Pumpkin spice sugar.
- Vegan cheese – I like to sprinkle in some black pepper and sea salt.
- Fruit jams – strawberry, raspberry or apricot.
- Tomato sauce and vegan cheese for a pizza vibe.
- Plain melted chocolate.
