Healthy Halloween Recipes (but still super tasty!)

DESSERTS

Hello my loves! Happy almost Halloween.

Normally we watch scary movies during this month but doesn’t it feel like this year has just been one long, never ending one?! On the plus side we’re not in full lockdown anymore so you can at least bake some cookies (recipe below) and get my ebook that I wrote a few years ago with my dear friend Leah that includes some delicious & healthy halloween recipes.

1/3 cup coconut flour
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp sea salt

  2. Slowly mix in with the wet ingredients until smooth. Grab one inch chunks of the dough and flatten into a cookie shake (they don’t spread out when cooking).
  3. Bake for 15-20. For the frosting, melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips with 1 tsp coconut oil and drizzle on your cookies. Add additional toppings like candy corn if desired.

These bad boys are so dang tasty and I guarantee you’re going to have a hard time not eating them all in one sitting!
