Oh come on, you know I had to talk HALLOWEEN today, right? And what better way to chat food, than very scary GOOD food and recipes. A scary good WIAW! Uh, duh.
A few sary good eats from the day: Egg on honey oats, fresh persimmon from my brother’s tree, jalapeno and sausage salad (scary spicy too), and vanilla caramel truffle tea. Ya, that tea is spooktacular!
Oh and my favorite scary good snack? I had two!
Scary good strawberry banana Corepower with my UBER cute niece.
And the Scary GOOD November Healthy Bites Flavor! Pumpkin Spice and Dark chocolate Chip. BLOODY delicious I tell ya!
Ok really, the point of this post was to share all the good eats, yes, but it’s also to share this recipe for the end of the October #plantPOWER challenge that Kasey and Heather are hosting. Have you seen all their amazing foods and giveaways?! WOW, go check it out! In fact, I’m guest posting on their sites today with a healthy bites giveaway. Scary good, am I right? Hehe.
SPOOK-TACULAR Vegan Bites
- 1 heaping cup of Vegan Marshmallows (I use the ones at Whole Foods chicago Vegan Foods Brand)
- 2 tbsp. 100% cocoa
- 2 heaping tbsp. peanut flour (can also use coconut flour, ground up peanuts, etc.)
- 1 serving Vegan Chocolate Protein (Vega Smoothie blend is good here)
- 2 tbsp. Food for Life Vegan Chocolate chip Minis (Can also use carob chips or 100% dark chocolate chips)
- 1-2 tbsp. unsweetened coconut (shredded)
- 3-4 tbsp. of preferred nut butter
- ¼ cup agave nectar
- Optional : cocoa or coconut extract
- Grind up your marshmallows in a blender or food processor first. If you have large chocolate chips, go ahead and blend them up with the marshmallows as well. If you are using minis, there is no need, just mix in. Makes sure you grind up the rest of your dry ingredients as well. Transfer into a large bowl and add in nut butter, flours, protein, coconut, and agave. Mix well, and then roll into balls/bites. Makes around 10-12 bites. I then like to roll each of them in some extra coconut and/or cocoa. Freeze right away then store in fridge or freezer to maintain freshness. Store for up to 6 weeks. YUM!!
Well folks, that’s all I got for now. I hope you get to make these. If so, please let me know how they turn out.
And Heather and Casey…. thanks for letting me participate in this October Challenge. I’m definitely raising my glass of wine and toasting you tonight! See, plant based. Grapes are good!
Have a fun night!
True story: The hubs wanted to go as “Magic Mike” for Halloween. I told him he’d have to shave his whole body first. So we decided he should just do a “twist” on character. Richard Simmons meets Magic Mike. Scary ridiculous, scary funny!
