I can’t believe that Halloween is nearly here. We’ve been watching a few of our favorite Halloween movies, like Fun Size, Monster Squad, and Hocus Pocus to help get into the Halloween spirit, and I’m excited to make some fun treats this weekend, too!
The following ideas are some of my favorites for satisfying your sweet tooth, without the refined sugar or artificial preservatives found in many popular processed candy bars. I hope you’ll enjoy them if you’re looking for some healthier, yet still satisfying, treats, too.
These crispy, peanut buttery candy bars are made with just 5 all-natural ingredients and taste ridiculously authentic. Get the recipe here.
These gluten-free cookies get their naturally green hue from matcha powder. You can add sliced almonds for a “witch” finger look, or dark chocolate chunks for more of a “monster” finger. Get the recipe here.
These no-bake candy bars feature a homemade almond nougat topped with an addictive date-based caramel, peanuts, and a dark chocolate coating for a treat that’s lower in sugar and higher in nutrients. Get the recipe here.
These Chocolate Peanut Butter Pumpkins are a healthier alternative to the popular Reese’s version, and you can make them into all sorts of fun shapes! Top with melted dark chocolate or your own homememade chocolate coating for a lower sugar treat. Get the recipe here.
It’s a good thing these homemade Twix Bars are so quick to prepare, because you won’t want to wait long once you taste these decadent layers. Get the recipe here.
These classic treats were my childhood favorite, and I love making mini versions for a perfect bite-sized treat. Get the recipe here.
Made from fiber-rich dates, this sweet dip pairs perfectly with fresh apple slices! Get the recipe here.
I hope you all enjoy these treats and have a very Happy Halloween!
