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 (here is a great pumpkin cookie cutter).  We can always get behind a DIY project that’s simple and makes us feel super creative!
