Hauntingly Yummy (and Healthy) Halloween Treats

Halloween is perhaps one of the most awesome holidays there is for kids. Not only do they get to dress up as spooky creatures, whimsical characters, or their favorite superhero but they also get to receive tons of sweets from the neighbors.

I was browsing Lauren Conrad’s blog and I found awesome healthy Halloween treats that not only look tasty but also looked cute.While resisting the urge to munch on Halloween candy can be difficult, moms like us can still help our kids get their sugar dose without having to succumb to the refined sugars commonly found in those decadent sweets.

In her post, she included Banana Graveyard Ghosts which were made from halved bananas with faces drawn on with black decorating icing. The spooky fruits were then glued to a plate with peanut butter and then a bed of chocolate cookie crumbles were laid on to act as graveyard dirt.

Moreover, she also included adorable Clementine “pumpkins” made from peeled fruit. Green pipe cleaners were then cut for stems.

Aside from these sweet treats, Halloween candy can also be replaced by the following:

  • Rice Krispies Treats made from brown rice puffs and brown rice syrup. These can also be decorated with Sun Drops.
  • Chocolate-covered fruit skewers. You can also freeze these for instant fruit pops.
  • Eerie Popcorn Balls made with popcorn, honey, butter, salt, and raisins.
  • Roasted pumpkin seeds
  • Caramel apples
  • Yogurt covered raisins
  • Ghoulish Jell-O in orange peel cups

I hope you have fun finding yummy alternatives this Halloween!
