Halloween is such a joyous time, probably my children's favorite of all the holidays. Children love to dress up and it's so much fun to see all the creative, wacky costumes. This year is a little different, but I'm sure there will be ways to get out and have some fun. Parents are talking about meeting in a parking lot and trick or treating in pods out of their cars parked 6 feet apart. We're planning a family trick or treat experience where each adult hides in a room in the house and gives out treats from the closet as the children go room to room. At the Farmers Markets, each of the booths will be handing out goodies.
In line with our muun chi brand, we won't be handing out anything that has refined sugar. Instead, we'll be handing out freshly made Mouths of Rotten Teeth.
Here I'm sharing a recipe that uses the nuggets of goodness that are in our No Grain Granola. This is a really fun project to do with your kids, and it's all good for children's guts and teeth! Here's the recipe for
Mouths of Rotten Teeth
Slice a Red Skinned apple into thick slices that are to serve as thick lips
Enough Almond butter to spread on each slice
30 nuggets of muun chi No Grain Granola chunks
Spread almond butter on one side of each of the slices of apple. Pick out 6 muun chi nuggets that are shaped like rotten teeth and line them across the almond butter side of the apple. Then place the other slice of apple with the almond butter side down to hold the teeth in place. You have yourself two lips surrounding a row of rotten teeth!
To add to the fun, you can make nice white teeth with banana, pear... the asian pear works great, too. You can even have a conversation with your child about the dangers of eating too many sweets and how you could end up with rotten teeth if you don't watch out :) Have fun! who said you can't live without the sugar? Your children's guts will be thanking you.
