It’s easy to get spooked from eating too much candy and sweets while celebrating Halloween. Are you looking for festive Halloween snacks that aren’t full of sugar? Here are some quick, easy, and healthy alternatives for fun Halloween treats!
- Start by lining your baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat mat. Peel the bananas and cut each banana in half. Slice each half in half again longways so you have 4 pieces of banana in total. Carefully insert the popsicle sticks into the bottom of each banana then place them on the prepared baking sheet.
- Place the bananas in the freezer for 30 minutes to an hour, or until they are completely frozen. Pour vanilla yogurt into a tall glass and dip each banana in, covering the whole thing. Place the yogurt coated banana back on the baking sheet and place 3 mini chocolate chips on the banana to make the eyes and mouth. Repeat the process until you are completely done with each banana. Return to the freezer for 20 more minutes.
- To preserve these banana ghosts, place them in an airtight container and store them in the freezer for up to 2 months. These make for the perfect spooky snack.
Apple Monster Mouths
- Wash and dry your apples and strawberries. Then, core and cut your apples into quarters. Slice your strawberries into thin strips.
- Carefully cut a mouth shape in the center of a quarter of an apple. (If you happen to go all the way through to the other side, that’s fine. The peanut butter usually covers it up)
- Smear peanut butter on the inside of the cut apple (top and bottom). This doesn’t have to be a thick layer, just enough to cover both sides.
- Place your strawberry tongue in the bottom center of the apple mouth. Then, push the sunflower seeds into the peanut butter and apple just hard enough to stay put. Now, take a dab of peanut butter and put it on the back of the candy eyes, and attach them to the top of the apple.
Mummy Granola Bars
- 1. Follow recipe instructions for the granola bars. Once they have set, cut into 12 bars.
- 2. Add a set of googly eyes to each granola bar. You can use a dab of the melted white chocolate as glue to keep in place if you wish.
- 3. Pour the melted white chocolate into a piping bag or plastic baggie with the corner cut out.
- 4. Drizzle the white chocolate over the granola bars.
- 5. Allow to fully set (either on the counter or place in the freezer) before serving.
