In the spirit of Halloween, we’re featuring a handful of spooktacular treats from our blogger friends! You’ll have no trouble turning down the candy this month if you have a few of these healthy Halloween treats on hand. Check out what these talented bloggers have been concocting in their kitchens for the spooky holiday:
Traditional Halloween candy is usually overly processed and laden with sugar, but that doesn’t mean you have to forgo the treats altogether. Aileen of Morsels and Moonshine created two healthy treats that are sure to be a hit at any Halloween party. Her coconut “puppy chow” is definitely on our to-do list because it’s nut-based and loaded with nutrients. If you’re looking for a savory snack, be sure to check out her roasted rosemary cashews.
Looking for a way to celebrate Halloween at home? Karen of Lushious Eats has some frightfully good recipes on her blog. Bloody finger pumpkin pie protein cupcakes are a spooky and healthy alternative to the Halloween cupcakes you’ll find at the supermarket. Her pumpkin stuffed cacao cups look incredible! We love that they’re made with all natural cacao powder for pure antioxidant-packed chocolaty goodness without the extra sugar and heavy cream. Don’t forget to check out her other ideas, like delicious peanut walnut apple pops.
If you’re looking for healthy Halloween treats that you can throw together in a pinch, check out this post from Courtney of The Party Connection. Her banana ghosts and mandarin pumpkins are almost too adorable to eat although that won’t stop your guests from gobbling them up on the 31st. Those two fruity appetizers, combined with the carrot witches fingers will make sure your Halloween is full of healthy treats, and no unhealthy tricks!
Brienne of the blog Jamieson Diaries knows how hard it can be to resist tempting Halloween candy, which is why she gave us three super easy and healthy alternatives. Jack-o’-lantern oranges are fun for both kids and grown ups alike! Apple butter teeth are a scary, yet delicious way to celebrate the spookiness of Halloween, while the banana energy pumpkins make a great workout snack. There’s no limit to how creative you can be this time of year!
There’s nothing scary about Julie’s recipe for cashew butter and quinoa crunch candy bars on her blog Edible Ventures. This irresistible treat is made from all natural ingredients like cashew butter and puffed quinoa for a good source of protein, fiber and healthy fats. One bite of this crispy, chocolaty and oh-so-good treat, and you’ll forget all about the unhealthy candy that is so common this time of year. Plus, there’s no baking involved and the recipe is super easy to make!
Halloween stuffed peppers, strawberry ghosts, and spooky spiders are just a few of the recipes on Melanie’s blog Beads-N-Style that will give you inspiration this month. Her roundup of healthy Halloween snacks is a great place to start if you’re looking for nutritious, kid-friendly treats for your spooktacular celebration. Our personal favorite is the spooky spiders with dark chocolate chips for eyes!
