Here are some wicked Halloween recipes to get everyone in the scary spirit!

BOO-berry oatmeal


  • 1 cup skim milk
  • ½ cup oatmeal (Quick-1 Minute)
  • 1 rounded tablespoon flaxseed meal
  • 1/3 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 3 or 4 walnut halves (broken into bits)
  • sprinkle of raw sugar or drizzle of honey (optional)


– Heat milk in sauce pan over medium/high heat until slow boil. Stir periodically so that milk does not scorch.

– Add oatmeal and flaxseed meal into heated milk. Stir for one minute.

– Remove pan from heat and allow oatmeal to sit for another minute

– Pour cooked oatmeal/flaxseed into serving bowls

– Top with blueberries, nuts, and optional sugar or honey.



Banana Ghosts


  • banana, ripened
  • Popsicle sticks
  • 1.5 oz white chocolate


– Remove any stringy fibers from the peeled banana, then cut it in half widthwise. Push a Popsicle stick into each half through the cut end, then cover each pop with plastic wrap and freeze until firm (about 3 hours).

– Next, place a 1.5-ounce piece of white chocolate candy in a microwave-safe bowl and cook on high until melted (it generally takes about 1 minute). With a butter knife, spread the melted white chocolate on the frozen banana halves.

– Set the pops on a waxed-paper-covered dish. Press on candies or currants for eyes and mouths and return the pops to the freezer until ready to serve.  


Pumpkin Gunk-in


  • 1 6oz container Greek vanilla yogurt
  • ¼ cup canned pumpkin or roasted pumpkin pulp*
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • 1 honey graham cracker, crumbled
  • 2 teaspoons chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin seeds

*please note that canned pumpkin is not the same as canned pumpkin pie filling, which should not be substituted. To make your own pumpkin pulp, cut a pumpkin in half, scoop out the seeds and roast, cut side down, in a 400 degree oven for 50-60 minutes, or until pumpkin flesh is soft when poked as a fork.


– Fill a small bowl with yogurt and sprinkle with ¾ of the graham cracker.

– Mix pumpkin with sugar and add to yogurt.

– Garnish with remaining ¼ crushed graham cracker, chocolate chips and pumpkin seeds.



Cheesy Broomsticks


  • 3 sticks of string cheese
  • 6 pretzel sticks
  • Fresh chives


– Using kitchen scissors, cut the ends off each string cheese stick (about 2 inches long).

– Cut one end of the cheese into strips, being careful not to cut all the way to the top. Fan out cheese strips as best you can.

– Take one side of the scissors and gently stick it into the uncut side of the cheese, to make a little hole for the pretzel. Slowly twist the pretzel stick into the hole, careful not to tear the cheese.

– Tie a string of fresh chives around the top of each cheese piece. Enjoy!
