YieldMakes about a dozen ghosts
2½ cups coconut (shredded)
2 tablespoons coconut oil
¼ cup peanuts (optional)
Sprinkle of salt
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Agave nectar (to taste)
Raisins or currants
1. Put all ingredients, except for raisins/currants, into the food processor and blend. (Be careful not to use too much agave, or your ghosts will turn brown.)
2. Shape the mixture into little lumps. For the eyes, press currants into the lumps toward the top, or pinch raisins in half to make them smaller. (I couldn’t resist using a ton to make a Charlie Brown!)
3. Dehydrate overnight at 105 Fahrenheit. Chill in the fridge (they’ll hold together better) and serve.
Tip: My ghosts were too tall for my dehydrator--I have the round kind where the number of trays you stack determines its height. I had a ton of trays, so I took some scissors and cut out the netted part in the middle from one of them, and I just put its outer rim above the tray with the ghosts on it.

Happy Halloween! These are cute and tasty. Great for parties.
It worked perfectly, and now I can make muffins and other tallish things too!
