Raw Witches Fingers (GF, V)

Let’s face it – the season to indulge really starts on Halloween, am I right? With all the chocolate, candy and baked goods popping up on what seems like every desk, plate and table, it can be hard to resist the temptation of pure sugar at this time of year. One way to help stave off indulging in all those sugar cravings is to keep your taste buds and tummy satisfied with delicious food and treats. Keep the good stuff nearby and just as accessible as the candy (The Tasteful Pantry can help with our Treat Box), and you can even schedule a fun family project to make a yummy but not refined-sugar-laden treat together! 

These Raw Witches Fingers by Fork and Beans are actually wholesome energy bars in disguise! They contain no refined sugar and are sweetened with dates and cacao powder, plus they’re full of nuts to provide energy in the form of healthy fats and protein. Make these on Halloween with your kids and snack on them before sending them out to trick-or-treat – you may just find that they aren’t quite as ravenous for chocolate after eating these!

INGREDIENTS (makes 8 fingers):

2 dates, chopped with pits removed + 1 Tb water
1/3 c. raw walnuts
1/3 c. raw almonds
1/3 c. raw cashews
1 Tb raw cacao powder
4 raw almonds, sliced in half

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a food processor, blend dates and water until a rough paste is formed.
  2. Add nuts and cacao. Blend until a dough forms.
  3. Using 1 Tb of dough, form into finger shapes with hands.
  4. Place almond slice at the tip for fingernail.
  5. Chill for 15 minutes or devour immediately.
