It’s tempting to reach for the miniature candy bars and fun packs of sour treats this time of year. Instead, you might reach for one (or more!) of these scarily delicious, healthy treats that will thrill your tastebuds and provide you with some beneficial nutrients.
Spicy Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Craving some crunch? Enjoy some spice in your life? These roasted pumpkin seeds can be made as spicy as you want them to be, and provide some healthy fats and fiber (as well as flavor!). As with any recipe, feel free to adjust (or omit) the salt to fit your needs, and customize the spices to suit your tastes.
Candy Corn Granola Bars
These are a fun alternative to the classic treat. With oatmeal, yogurt, and sunflower seeds (better yet, use leftover pumpkin seeds from your jack-o-lantern carving!), these granola bars are adorable and are sure to bring a smile to everyone’s faces that sees them.
Carved Bell Peppers
This dish is a treat for all ages! Carve a bell pepper into the scariest jack-o-lantern face you can think of, then stuff it full with a savory filling (the sky’s the limit!) for a satisfyingly warm treat on a cold Halloween night.
Protein Bar Witch Fingers
This treat takes hardly any time to prepare, and only uses two ingredients! Encourage the children or young-at-heart in your home to get creative with shaping the protein bars into ghoulish witch fingers.
Pro tip: try for whole-foods based protein bars like this one, if possible.
Witchy Guacamole Dip
Delight guests and yourself with this guacamole dip that’s decorated to look like a witch. The entire dip and chip combo, including the veggies, provides a balanced snack that everyone will love.
