Jack-O-Lantern Pumpkin Yams

Discover the story

Part of the fun of Halloween is getting crafty, and what’s more enjoyable than being a little inventive with food? Jack O’ Lantern Pumpkin Yams have quickly become one of our favorite healthy snacks for kids on this spooky holiday – and we love that they taste sweet, too! This all-natural recipe only requires three easy + organic ingredients. 

When selecting your yams, be sure to opt for shorter and rounder ones so that you have enough thick pieces to make your pumpkin cutouts.  We can always get behind a DIY project that’s simple and makes us feel super creative!
