Healthy Halloween Treats: Skip the candy, and make these 4 healthy, festive Halloween snacks made with fruits and vegetables instead.
My favorite thing about Halloween has to be the food!
And while I do have a sweet tooth and can’t resist Peanut Butter Cups, I love making healthier Halloween Recipes as well.
Healthy Halloween Treats
With fruits and vegetables, I have created 4 simple recipes that are sure to bring a smile to your child’s face! And what is better than kids getting excited to eat produce?
With a banana, chocolate chips and raisins, you can create this Adorable Banana Ghost.
- Peel a banana.
- Divide a banana in half.
- Place two chocolate chips for eyes on ghost.
- Use a raisin for ghost’s mouth.
- You can use nut butter to help secure chocolate chips and raisins to banana, but not necessary.
An apple and sunflower seeds is all you need to make these Vampire Apple Chompers.
- Cut a red apple into wedges.
- Using a pairing knife, carefully cut an opening out of the apple (skin side up), being sure to not cut the apple completely through.
- Place two sunflower seeds into the flesh of the apple for the Vampire Fangs.
With just mandarin oranges and celery, these cute pumpkins look incredibly realistic and are irresistible for kids.
- Peel Mandarin orange.
- Cut celery stick into small 1/2 inch sections.
- Place celery stick into orange.
Instead of raisins and peanut butter on celery sticks to create ants on a log, use celery and peanut butter and a sliced almond, to replicate a witches finger.
- Cut celery into 3-4 inch slices.
- Spread the inside of the celery stick with peanut butter or almond butter.
- Place an almond slice on the top of the celery stick, using nut better to hold in place.
