This collection of vegan fall desserts is the best there is! They taste amazing with easy to find simple ingredients and are gluten-free.
I love the flavors of fall, especially in dessert form. While pumpkin is for sure amazing, I think my absolute favorite is the combo of apple and cinnamon!
The greatest part of Fall recipes is that they are super easy to adjust to your dietary needs and preferences. There are a number of vegan substitutes you can use in recipes such as flax eggs, cashews, nut milks, etc. However, it's much better to find recipes that were intentionally created plant-based.
There are so many out there it's easy to do! I've compiled a list of some of the best vegan desserts from the classic to unique. Not only are they plant-based, but also gluten-free and taste absolutely delicious! Since they're all made with mostly healthy ingredients, feel free to indulge all season long.

Generally speaking, a fall dessert is anything that uses ingredients most commonly found in fall. Things like pumpkin and apple are the most common but we also see many desserts using pears, cranberry and spiced flavors.
Any dessert, fall or not, is vegan when it doesn't contain any animal products. For desserts this means things like eggs, dairy, and even honey and gelatin. This list here is full of vegan fall desserts!
There are many options when it comes to making a typically non vegan fall recipe vegan. It is much easier to do with recipes that do not involve baking since baking is an exact science and when you start to alter ingredients the end result is not usually as good. The texture and flavor can definitely be off. However, many people do like using egg and dairy substitutes when trying to make their favorite things vegan.
I can't decide which to make first! They all look too good!
