My kids’ favorite holiday is here — and I think we all know what that is! HALLOWEEN! So now’s the time to treat them with some sweet, gooey chocolatey goodness that they can wash down with a cold glass of milk. They love their mommy’s organic Halloween cookies – which is actually my altered version of Emily Schuman’s recipe. I just tweak it a bit to make it healthier and add some nutrient density to it. The best part is you can get the kids involved and have them decorate it!
+ 1 cup of unsalted grassfed butter, melted
+ 1 cup organic all purpose flour (you can try gluten free as well)
+ 1.5 cup organic light brown sugar
+ 2 large eggs, organic and free range
+ 1 T of organic vanilla extract
+ 1 tsp celtic sea salt
+ 1/4 tsp baking soda
+ 1 cup of Halloween colored M&Ms (ok this part is not organic) or organic Sunspire chips
+ Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
+ Spray a an 8-inch square baking pan with baking spray then line pan with parchment paper.
+ In a large bowl, whisk together butter and sugars until the sugar is melted into the butter. Add in eggs and vanilla.
+ Then add in the flour and salt and baking soda and stir until combined. Fold in half the candies.
+ Transfer the batter to the pan and smooth out the top. Have your kids add the remaining Halloween colored M&M candies on top of the dough.
+ Bake for 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely or else it will turn out to be a chocolately mess when cutting. (Not like that’s a bad thing.)
+ Cut and devour.
+++Next on my list to try is this delicious ridiculousness!
