Halloween is one day we like to have some tasty treats on hand! After Shredded Pork Tacos or Halloween Chili it’s fun to grab some homemade treats and watch a not-so-scary movie. These “Nutty Buddies” totally fit the bill. If you share them at a party no one will ever know they have been healthified! 😉
To help offset the sugar we’ve added dried fruit and nuts to this delicious mix. It also calls for peanut butter, coconut oil and a cereal that is free of artificial ingredients. Theo Chocolate is a favorite of ours (especially their milk chocolate bar) because the ingredients are very simple and pure. As long as you keep the ingredients as organic as possible you are in for a guilt free treat that will leave you coming back for more!
