Halloween Breakfast Ideas
Kids love nothing more than waking up on Halloween morning (or any Holiday morning for that matter) to a special little themed treat.
These little Halloween breakfast balls are just perfect for the big day as they:
- can easily be made ahead of time (so you don’t have to get up early to prep)
- are freezer-friendly, so if you make too many you can always freeze them for fun snacks during a busy week
- are allergy-friendly so the fun can continue and they can be packed into little lunch boxes if they have to go to school on Halloween
- make a great little Halloween themed activity for you to do with the kids before or after school.
- make a great healthy rice bubble recipe (like these healthy rice bubble bars) to use up some leftover puffed rice in the pantry
What Ingredients Are Needed?
These are super easy to put together and definitely do not have a long list of complicated ingredients to put you off making up a batch.
You will need:
- sunflower seeds
- brown rice puffs
Just throw everything into a food processor and pulse until everything is combined. Shape into balls and roll in some coconut and then pop in the fridge to set.
If you want to decorate your balls to transform them into Halloween breakfast bliss balls then just decorate with:
- pretzel sticks or dried noodles for legs;
- currants, raisins or wild blueberries for eyes;
- pepitas or sunflower seeds for sharp teeth;
- anything else you can find in the pantry that will work well.
Can I Use Any Dates For Bliss Balls?
Yes and no.
Mejdool dates are best. These are the bigger, stickier dates (like these ones) and they will give your bliss balls that great texture you want. You will find them in little containers or big boxes in the fruit and veggie section of most supermarkets.
If you can’t find them you can always sub in some neglet or noor dates, although it will be a little more work. Simply soak them in warm water for 5 mins, drain them and then use them as called for in the recipe.
How To Store Halloween Breakfast Balls.
Just pop them in the fridge for up to 3 days. Normally bliss balls will store for longer than this in the fridge, but as this version contains fresh banana they will not last that long without the banana going off.
Not to worry, if you have more leftover after the 3 days then just pop them in the freezer in an airtight container for up to 2 months. Just pull them out of the freezer on the morning you will want to eat them and they will thaw in no time.
