When we think of Halloween, we automatically think of sweet treats that get handed out and gobbled up while giggling with friends. There is so much fun to be had and calories to be eaten, but Halloween starts earlier and earlier each year. I started seeing stuff in the stores in early September.
Fall is my favorite time of year and the flavors of the season tempt me to no end. That said, there is no reason to dive into the packaged, overly refined treats when we can make our own organic seasonal favorites at home.
