More Halloween recipes

Chocolate, caramel, marshmallow and nuts----that�s what most Halloween treats are made of. What do you do if many of the ingredients in traditional Halloween treats are off limits to you because of food allergies and sensitivities? I get creative. Now, my treats are filled with coconut, dried fruit, seeds and spices.

One of my favorite anytime treats is Cinnabon Bites, which contain no allergens.

Here's what you need:

2 T. coconut butter
2 T. coconut oil
1/4 cup raw coconut flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup coconut flakes
1/8-1/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract, non-alcohol
vanilla stevia liquid, to taste
dash of sea salt
glaze: 1 T. coconut butter + 1 T. coconut oil

Here's what you do:

Soften 2 T. each coconut butter and oil. Place in a food processor, along with coconut flour, cinnamon, salt, vanilla extract, stevia and coconut milk. Pulse to mix into a sturdy dough. Shape into 6 balls. Place in the fridge to firm up.
Once the cinnabons are firm, dip them in a glaze, made from 1 T. each softened coconut oil and coconut butter. Return the cinnabon bites to the fridge until glaze firm.

If you prefer something crunchy, try Grain-free Monster Cookies.

Here's what you need:
(Recipe yields four large cookies)

1/4 cup sunflower seed meal (or substitute almond meal)
2 T. each raw sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds (or substitute nuts of your choice)
2 T. finely shredded coconut flakes
2 T. large shredded coconut flakes
2 T. sunbutter
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 chia eggs for vegans and 1 large egg for vegetarians
vanilla stevia, to taste
2 T. freeze-dried pears
2 T. freeze dried blueberries
(Feel free to substitute other fruit, if desired)

Here's what you do:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In your food processor, grind up 1/4 cup sunflower seeds to make a flour. Add the finely shredded coconut flakes, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, sunbutter, stevia, and either chia eggs or cage-free egg. Pulse to mix. Gently mix in the freeze-dried fruit and big coconut flakes. Divide the dough into four cookies and bake for about 13 minutes. Do not overbake.
