These healthy Halloween treats are sure to help you celebrate the holiday without trick-or-treating for a load of cavities!
I know, I know. Halloween is only one day a year, so you might as well enjoy it. Right?
While that may be true, the REAL story is that we eat garbage for weeks both before and after Halloween, using the one-day-holiday as an excuse to eat junk all month long and then some.
You know I’m right. That Halloween candy doesn’t disappear all by itself!
So if you really want to leave the Halloween junk for enjoying ON Halloween, instead of the few weeks leading up to it, try these healthier snacks. They’ll help you feel like you’re still enjoying some tasty treats without putting all that yuck in your body or pounds in your pants.
You can find all of my Halloween recipes here. The recipes below are from other healthy food bloggers around the web!
