In this blog, we'll delve into creative ways to relish a more nourishing and conscientious Halloween celebration, complete with delightful recipes.

Oat Ghost Cakes

Ingredients:

  • 1 Britt’s Superfoods Apple, Ginger & Turmeric juice sachet
  • 400g cups traditional rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 100g cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin or double the apple sauce amount
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 120g cup chopped almonds (or your nut of choice)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F and spray two muffin tins with nonstick spray.

  2. In a large bowl, combine oats, cinnamon, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and nutmeg until thoroughly mixed.

  3. In a separate bowl, combine brown sugar, pumpkin, applesauce, honey, and vanilla. Whisk the wet ingredients together until thoroughly mixed and the honey is smooth.

  4. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix until even.

  5. Gently fold in the almonds until combined.

  6. Spoon 1/4 cup of the mixture into each cup on your muffin tin. Use the back of a spoon to firmly press the mixture into the tin, creating a cup shape out of the granola. Pack the granola cups as firmly as possible.

  7. Bake for 35 minutes, or until golden. The granola cups should be firm and spongy to the touch. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before removing them from the muffin tin. Allow to fully cool.
