Spiders on a Log
Spiders on a Log are a classic healthy Halloween snack that is not only delicious and nutritious but super time efficient! Within 10 measly minutes, you can have a tasty low-calorie snack that is bound to satisfy the sweetness craving. Be sure to use all-natural and unsweetened peanut butter for a protein-packed punch and opt for dark chocolate which is high in cocoa. Cocoa is not only delightful but offers many great health benefits, such as lowering blood pressure and cholesterol. Worried that there are too many treats on display? There is also a savory option available.
Bloody Falafel Fingers
This recipe is not only eerily yummy, but it is also vegan and gluten-free! With nutrient-rich chickpeas at the base of the recipe; this snack will help regulate your appetite, weight, blood sugar, and support digestion. Throw in a sugar-free tomato sauce (or make your own) and this snack will cast a spell on your body as well as your taste buds!
By simply changing up the presentation, these Devil Eggs are a fun twist to the popular snack. Eggs are not only nutritious but they raise ‘good’ cholesterol and support heart and eye health. Keep an eye on the sugar included in the sauces to make sure that this snack is as healthy as it can be.
Frozen Banana Mummies
These treats are a cool addition to your Halloween snack spread. Rich in various vitamins and minerals (such as Vitamin B and Potassium) bananas support digestion, healthy skin, kidney health, heart health, and much more. Although they do contain fructose – an unrefined sugar found in fruit – bananas are high in fiber and rarely contain any pesticides or pollutants owing to their thick skin. Plus, they contain way less sugar than normal ice cream! However, if the fructose content is a concern, decrease the size of the banana and ensure to not use overly-ripened fruit.
Witch’s Broomsticks are the perfect cute savory snack for your Halloween spread. Cheese is rich with nutrients that are beneficial for your hair, skin, and overall health. If you are calorie conscious, choose lighter cheeses such as Mozzarella or Camembert. If you are wanting to shy away from cheese altogether, there is also a vegan option available.
Peppers are packed with vitamin B6, vitamin C, and antioxidants which contribute to better health. Not only is this dish delicious, but it could also be a fun family activity to carve out the various pepper faces during prep time. You can find the recipe for this slightly more hearty snack here. There is also a recipe for Stuffed Halloween Peppers for a vegetarian option if you prefer.
These are just a few of the many healthy recipes available when considering snack options for the Halloween season. Savory and sweet, these treats are not only packed with many beneficial nutrients but will offer a much-needed break from sugar-packed snacks.
