You have to try our witches fingers, they are similar to the traditional shortbread with a few healthier modications, along a hint of almond flavor. Serve up a bowl of fingers at your Halloween party!

  • Yields: 4 to 5 Dozen


1 cup coconut sugar

1 tsp arrowroot

¾ cup organic butter

2½ cups gluten free all purpose flour

1 tsp aluminum free baking powder

1 large free range egg

½ tsp almond flavor alcohol-free

½ tsp spirulina powder

Sliced raw almonds


1Preheat oven to 325 degrees

2Blend coconut sugar and arrowroot in a high speed blender to the consistency of icing sugar. Add to a mixing bowl.

3Add the flour, baking powder, and spirulina powder, then mix in the butter, egg and almond flavor.

4Form into a ball and refrigerate for at 30 minutes. Work with ¼ of the dough at a time.

5Using your hands roll a ½ inch ball then form into the shape of a finger and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. They should be about half the size of a regular finger seeing they will expand during the baking process.

6Insert the a sliced almond into the tip of the finger and use a knife to press lines in the middle for the knuckles.

7Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes.
