|Vegan Coconut Butter Chia Seed Eyeballs|
We are bombarded with sweet treats at this time of year. Why not make your own healthy versions. And since this is the last day of Clean Carb October, I've got the perfect recipe for you.
Zain Jamal was working in the kitchen yesterday whipping up Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Back Pack Kisses from The Eat-Clean Diet Vegetarian Cookbook and a few creative changes later she wound up with Vegan Coconut Butter Chia Seed Backpack Eyeballs!

2 Tbsp (30 ml) hulled hemp seeds *I used unsweetened coconut
2 Tbsp (30 ml) flaxseed, cracked * I used whole black chia seeds
¼ cup (60 ml) unsweetened dried cranberries *I used apricots (for the orange, but papaya or dried pumpkin would work too)

Pinch sea salt *I used Himalayan Crystal Salt
1 cup (240 ml) all-natural peanut butter, sugar and salt free *I used all-natural coconut butter
2 Tbsp (30 ml) brown-rice syrup, yacon syrup or pure honey *I used raw wildflower honey, but can sub syrup for vegans
