Halloween Slimdown Day 7: Sunday's Afternoon Treat

Relax and have fun- these Halloween themed goodies are tasty and be enjoyed by everyone!

 These festive (without food coloring), Pumpkin Carrot Muffins will taste just as good as they look, except no one will know that they're hidden with vegetables!
  • 1 3/4 cup flour (I used sprouted spelt flour)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup agave syrup
  • 1 cup cooked pumpkin / carrot puree (I cooked chunks in the microwave and then food-processed them)
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk, my go-to)
  • 1/3 cup rice bran oil, or your favorite cooking oil or melted butter
  • shredded unsweetened coconut, optional
Combine dry ingredients and spices in a large bowl, and combine wet in another bowl. Add wet to dry and mix until just combined. Fill 12 greased muffin tins with batter and sprinkle with coconut if desired (that was Owen’s way of making the ghost muffins look white!). Bake at 400 degrees for about 18 minutes.

 Candy corn may be a universal Halloween candy, but to those who don't like it, check out Vegan Lemon Flavored Candy Corn! This unique recipe is perfect for those who want a guilt-free satisfaction, but don't miss out on the taste! This does take longer to make, but you can find the recipe here

Your Halloween indulgence- Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes don't have to wait until Thanksgiving. Add toppings, whip, or sprinkles! Enjoy this one! You can view the recipe for the candy corn gummy, and cupcake here

Tell me which one is your favorite! Please leave comments and request below.
