Here are some wicked Halloween recipes to get everyone in the scary spirit!
- 1 cup skim milk
- ½ cup oatmeal (Quick-1 Minute)
- 1 rounded tablespoon flaxseed meal
- 1/3 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
- 3 or 4 walnut halves (broken into bits)
- sprinkle of raw sugar or drizzle of honey (optional)
– Heat milk in sauce pan over medium/high heat until slow boil. Stir periodically so that milk does not scorch.
– Add oatmeal and flaxseed meal into heated milk. Stir for one minute.
– Remove pan from heat and allow oatmeal to sit for another minute
– Pour cooked oatmeal/flaxseed into serving bowls
– Top with blueberries, nuts, and optional sugar or honey.
- banana, ripened
- Popsicle sticks
- 1.5 oz white chocolate
– Remove any stringy fibers from the peeled banana, then cut it in half widthwise. Push a Popsicle stick into each half through the cut end, then cover each pop with plastic wrap and freeze until firm (about 3 hours).
– Next, place a 1.5-ounce piece of white chocolate candy in a microwave-safe bowl and cook on high until melted (it generally takes about 1 minute). With a butter knife, spread the melted white chocolate on the frozen banana halves.
– Set the pops on a waxed-paper-covered dish. Press on candies or currants for eyes and mouths and return the pops to the freezer until ready to serve.
- 1 6oz container Greek vanilla yogurt
- ¼ cup canned pumpkin or roasted pumpkin pulp*
- ½ teaspoon sugar
- 1 honey graham cracker, crumbled
- 2 teaspoons chocolate chips
- 2 teaspoons pumpkin seeds
*please note that canned pumpkin is not the same as canned pumpkin pie filling, which should not be substituted. To make your own pumpkin pulp, cut a pumpkin in half, scoop out the seeds and roast, cut side down, in a 400 degree oven for 50-60 minutes, or until pumpkin flesh is soft when poked as a fork.
– Fill a small bowl with yogurt and sprinkle with ¾ of the graham cracker.
– Mix pumpkin with sugar and add to yogurt.
– Garnish with remaining ¼ crushed graham cracker, chocolate chips and pumpkin seeds.
- 3 sticks of string cheese
- 6 pretzel sticks
- Fresh chives
– Using kitchen scissors, cut the ends off each string cheese stick (about 2 inches long).
– Cut one end of the cheese into strips, being careful not to cut all the way to the top. Fan out cheese strips as best you can.
– Take one side of the scissors and gently stick it into the uncut side of the cheese, to make a little hole for the pretzel. Slowly twist the pretzel stick into the hole, careful not to tear the cheese.
– Tie a string of fresh chives around the top of each cheese piece. Enjoy!
