Frankenstein Fun Avocado Toast

Halloween festivities traditionally begin as the sun goes down, but monster-mashing some avocado for this fun and easy breakfast treat will definitely get you in the mood. Best of all, the filling combination of whole grain carbs and healthy fat will give you plenty of fuel for a spooktacular day of work/school costume contests, treat-making, and decorating!

Almond Butter and Blueberry Sweet Potato Toast

This is a craveable, nutrient-dense breakfast. Sweet potatoes contain vitamins B6, C, and D and are full of potassium, magnesium, and carotenoids (which boost immunity to disease). This powerhouse meal hits an even higher nutritional level when topped with blueberries and almond butter.

Jazzy Avocado Toast

Who doesn’t love avocado toast? I like this savory and slightly spicy version because it’s filled with a range of textures thanks to creamy avocado, crispy toast, and crunchy pumpkin seeds.

3 Ingredient Late-Night Granola

This is “Late-Night Granola” for two reasons: one of our nightly routines as we wind down for bedtime is sharing a bowl of this granola, topped with fruit and almond milk. Secondly, I often make this granola at night, or when it can have some “sitting time” after baking to get nice and crunchy.

Rainbow Chard & Tofu Vegan Muffins

These vegan muffins pack a powerful nutritional punch unlike traditional muffins, which are often full of butter, sugar, and saturated fats. They make a great breakfast, and are the perfect size for a light lunch or mid afternoon snack.

Avocado Rice Cakes

There will be no plain rice cakes or boring snacks on my watch. Crunchy rice cakes are topped with sliced avocado and a few generous spoonfuls of Spicy Tomato Jam. A light sprinkle of salt (optional) and pepper finishes off this simple yet immensely satisfying snack.

These mango coconut balls are a plant-based treat that will melt in your mouth. This dessert has no added sugar plus they are oil-free.

Heart-Shaped Oat & Banana Cookies

My plant-based, oil-free, sugar-free and even gluten-free (if you use gluten-free oats) heart-shaped cookies are so simple and delicious. No need to go to a store for a treat or gift when you can so easily make them at home.

Spicy Cashews and Pecans

My favorite combination is half pecans, half cashews. You might try almonds or walnuts, too. Just remember to use raw nuts, rather than roasted, to prevent over-toasting.

Homemade Granola

This recipe makes just about one quart, but I sometimes prepare a double batch just to share with friends, poured into little Mason jars and tied with ribbons.
