We are just weeks away from Halloween and since we know there are lots of sugar-filled days (and nights!) on your horizon, we thought we’d share some of our favorite healthy Halloween treats now so you can sneak some in in the meantime. Perfect for parties, after-school snacks or just a fun seasonal treat, we think you’ll find these guilt-free picks are great for you and your little ghouls:
Day of the Dead Skull Fruit Pizza – put a seasonal spin on your usual fruit salad with this Day of the Dead inspired fruit pizza. A homemade sugar cookie crust is topped with fresh, colorful fruit for a lighter spin on your usual sweet treats.
Shredded Chicken & Rice Stuffed Peppers – turn your peppers into party-worthy pumpkins packed with shredded chicken, rice and diced tomatoes. A healthy, hearty treat to make up for all those candy bowls.
Cheese & Pretzel Broomsticks – we love these simple, protein-packed broomstick snacks made from string cheese, pretzel sticks and chives. So easy and so cute!
Frankenstein Apples – speaking of simple, these Frankenstein apples are a two-minute treat that will wow your little ones. Simply tie up some green apples in small cellophane bags, decorate the bag with a Frankenstein face and tie them up!
Halloween Yogurt Bark – yogurt bark is always a snack favorite around here and this googly-eyed twist on it is perfect for the spook-filled weeks ahead. Get your littles in the kitchen to help you decorate so they can see (no pun intended) that the holiday can be just as fun when it’s not candy-filled.
