Your little ones will love these just as much as their Halloween candy… well, almost.

Ingredients

Directions 

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, mix the honey and almond butter together until smooth.

  5. Once set, remove the balls from the fridge and use the remaining white chocolate to drizzle on top to “mummify.” While the chocolate is still wet, place mini chocolate chips as eyes.
  6. Return to the refrigerator to set once again for an additional 30 minutes and enjoy!

Have a very Magical and Happy Halloween!

If you couldn’t already tell, we LOVE pumpkin! What do we love more than pumpkin? Pumpkin with chia seeds, of course! Pumpkin, just like chia, is a Magical superfood loaded with fiber and disease-fighting nutrients like magnesium, potassium, Vitamin C and E. However, the star in this fruit is the abundance of carotenoids! In just one ½ cup serving, you get more than 200% the recommended daily intake of alpha-carotene and 100% of the daily recommended intake of beta-carotene!

What better way to enjoy pumpkin than with a delicious bowl of Chia Pumpkin Overnight Oats? These oats are a tasty and effortless way to benefit from the powerful nutrients of pumpkin and chia. Top with our Cinnamon Pecan Chia Granola Clusters and you’ve got a Magical creation!
