Kid friendly, Lime & Coconut Frankenstein Heads

IMG_7104 2

Struggling to find a good, easy, healthy but also kid friendly AND most importantly fun recipe! These bad boys are absolutely perfect for Halloween. An idea is that you can make small mini versions and serve them at your party or give it away to trick or treators.

Here, in Sweden, we don’t really celebrate Halloween. It is mostly an excuse for young children to walk around and get free candy and teenagers to have parties. Nothing more than that really. The best part, if you ask me, is all the creative recipes that pop up around this time! I just love to go through Instagram and scroll through heaps of inspiring, entertaining recipes. What’s your favourite part about Halloween? Please do comment bellow!

For now, enjoy! Happy Halloween!

Kid friendly Lime & Coconut Frankenstein Heads

[Vegan, whole food, refined sugar-, gluten-, grain-, nut-, oil-free, fruit sweetened, paleo]

Serving 4 medium/large Frankenstein bars      Time 15 minutes + decorating time

Ingredients
  • 1,25 dl / 1/2 cup / 100g / 10 pitted dates
  • 1/2 tsp Chroella*
  • The juice and zest of a lime (around 2 tbsp juice and 2 tsp zest)
  • 0,6 dl / 4 tbsp / 1/4 cup coconut flour (can be subbed for example to oat flour)
  • 0,6 dl / 4 tbsp / 1/4 cup coconut shavings or shredded coconut
  • 1,25 dl / 1/2 cup puffed cereal or nuts or such of choice
  • Googley eyes of choice (I made mine using coconut butter mixed with a little bit of coconut oil and the pupil using 90% dark chocolate)
  • 4 mini marshmallows cut in half
  • Chocolate for decorating
Directions
  1. Mix together the dates, coconut flour, coloring food of choice, juice and zest until it well combined. Mix in the coconut shavings and cereal.
  2. Transfer the dough to some plastic wrap and start shaping into a large, thick square. Cut into four smaller squares and then decorate them using the chocolate, googley eyes and marshmallows! Enjoy!

*To archive the color I used around 1/3 of a teaspoon of Chroella but you can use what ever you feel like, spirulina and wheat grass might work. Normal food coloring also works perfectly fine, just didn’t have any at home.
