Are you having a Halloween party? Or are you festive and just like to get in the Halloween spirit? Below you’ll find 3 Easy healthy snacks for your Halloween party this year.
I personally love Halloween – except the haunted houses! As long as something is PG rated, it’s one of my favorite holidays to celebrate. Here you’ll find kid-friendly and adult-friendly snacks that are spooky for some, and funny for others. I hope you enjoy them!
3 easy healthy snacks for your halloween party this year
1. Ants on a log
Trick or treat! Did someone say ants on a log? For this fun old time-y recipe, only 3 ingredients are needed:
Almond Butter (or sunflower butter)
Slice the celery into 4-6 inch chunks. Spread the almond butter onto your “log,” and add the raisins on top. Eat!
To add in a spooky surprise, buy some plastic ants and mix them into the bunch. They won’t know what hit them until it’s too late!
2. Apple Monsters
Yikes! These guys look spooky. All you’ll need for this are:
Almond butter (or sunflower butter)
Almonds, halved or sliced to make the teeth
Core and slice apples into quarters. Using your knife, remove the center by slicing a “V” into the skin area and removing it. Fill with almond butter. Add sliced almonds for spooky teeth.
You can stick the eyeballs to the top using the almond butter as a sort of glue underneath. Note that I don’t mention marshmallows (they just make for a good picture) because commercially, I am not satisfied with what’s out there and so I won’t recommend them to you.
(I also haven’t been able to find a good vegan, grain-free, soy-free, corn-free, carageenan-free, gum-free marshmallow recipe yet… which means I’ll probably have to create one. So hold tight, marshmallow lovers! This will be available in the future and when I figure it out, I can’t wait to share it with you!)
3. Banana Ghosts
All’s you need is:
soy-free chocolate syrup.
To prepare, peel and slice bananas in half. Draw spooky ghosts on your bananas!
* If you have adrenal issues, trouble with caffeine, trouble sleeping, or feeling tired during the day and/or wired at night, I would avoid the chocolate sauce (even a little). Instead, you can make a syrup out of carob powder.
1/2 cup carob powder
2 cups almond milk
1/2 cup maple syrup
Heat the almond milk and carob powder until it boils. Remove from heat and stir to make sure you don’t get any lumps. Place into a separate bowl, and stir in the maple syrup. Wait to cool. Apply to your spooky ghosts!
