Vegan Witches Fingers Recipe. This is an absolute MUST for Halloween. They look scary and taste great! I have made a few different versions and none of them contain artificial colours. Scarily good!
We’ve “cooked” these fingers in the amazing Sedona Dehydrator! If you’re in the market for a good quality food dehydrator look no further than Sedona. So easy to use and whisper quiet and they look great in the kitchen.
Vegan Witches Fingers Recipe
Submitted by Claire @Team Raw Blend
Serves: 5-10 people
- 1 cup walnuts
- 1 cup activated almonds
- 1 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
- ¼ cup organic maple syrup or raw coconut nectar
- Pinch cinnamon
- 1 tsp. organic vanilla paste
- Pinch Himalayan sea salt
- Blanched almonds for the “fingernails”
- Spirulina powder (for the green fingers)
Method for the brown fingers
- Pulse the walnuts in your Vitamix Dry Container until they form a nice “breadcrumb” consistency. Put them into a large bowl. You might need to scrape down the sides and bottom edges with a spatula in between pulses.
- Pulse your activated almonds in your Vitamix Dry Container until they form a nice “breadcrumb” consistency. You might need to scrape down the sides and bottom edges with a spatula in between pulses. Place almond mixture into the bowl with the ground walnuts.
- Add to your nut mixture your liquid sweetener of choice, coconut, vanilla paste, sea salt and cinnamon and mix really well. Don’t be scared to get your hands dirty!
- Start moulding pieces of your dough into fingers and use a knife to create the knuckle wrinkles. This can be fiddly but fun! You can definitely get the kids to help!
- Once all the dough has been moulded, place your “fingers” onto your Sedona Trays using the Silicone Drying Sheet and dehydrate on high, 65 degrees Celsius, for 2 hours.
- After 2 hours, lower the temperature to 45 degrees Celsius and dehydrate for roughly 24 hours.
Method for the Green Fingers
1. Follow the steps above for the brown fingers.
2. After step 3, mix 2 tsp. Spirulina Powder really well with a glass of water.
3. Add about 2 tbsp. of the green “food dye” to your dough and mix really well.
4. Proceed with Step 4 from above.
