- 1 1/4 c. Enjoy LIfe’s All Purpose flour mix
- 1/3 c. cocoa powder, unsweetened
- 1/4 c. brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
- 1 1/2 tsp. psyllium husk powder* + 1 1/2 Tbsp. water, allow to thicken for a minute
- 3 Tbsp. coconut oil (use refined for no coconut flavor)
- 2 Tbsp. nondairy milk
- 1 Tbsp molasses
For the “glue”:
- 1/4 c. Enjoy Life chocolate chips, melted
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients until well-combined. Create a well in the middle.
- Pour all of the wet ingredients into the well. Mix until a nice dough forms (see the post below for all dough recipe notes). You will need to use your clean hands after a certain point to make sure the dough is formed. Your dough should be easy to work with and not sticky. If sticky, add a tablespoon of flour at a time until no longer sticky. If too dry, add a teaspoon of warm water until no longer dry.
- Divide the dough into 4 even dough balls.
- Roll one dough ball between a piece of parchment paper that is folded in half (see photos for reference). Aim for cutting out a rectangle that is a height of no more than 8″ and a width of 3 1/2″. Cut a 2″x3 1/2″ rectangle on the bottom (again, reference photos). Cut out a square for the window. No need to scoop out the dough, you will need the cut out as the stand for holding up the haunted house.
- Transfer the parchment paper onto the baking sheet (no need to scoop up with a spatula, save your wits about you!) and bake for 10-14 minutes, depending on your oven. Keep an eye on it after minute 10. Allow to completely cool and crisp up.
- Repeat with all of the dough balls. Depending on the size of your houses, you can get approximately 5.
- Using the melted chocolate, “glue” the bottom of the home to the base. Glue 2 sides of the square and allow to set behind the house to hold up. Decorate once the Haunted Houses are completely set.
- Don’t forget to use other fun mini Halloween cookie cutter shapes for the dough scraps to add to the houses! Oh and the homemade googly eyes are a must.
*If you do not have psyllium husk powder, you can sub grounded chia seed or flax seed meal.
