Healthy Halloween Treats for Kids

With Halloween approaching, and the mass amounts of assorted candies filling store shelves, it’s hard to deter the kids from all of that sugar! To maintain the fun of Halloween and the healthiness of every day snacks, we have created three treats that will satisfy your little goblins and ghosties without the sugar rush. There’s nothing tricky about these treats. Enjoy!

 

Creepy Crawlers

Ingredients:

 

Start by laying out two crackers and squeeze some cashew butter on the surface of each one. Next, grab four pretzel sticks and break each one in half. Add half a pretzel to each side of the cracker to give the spider legs! Next, take the other cracker with cashew butter and lay it on top of the cracker with the pretzel legs. Add two little dots of cashew butter to the front of the cracker and put a mini chocolate chip (or raisin) on each dot of cashew butter for the eyes.

 

Yogurt-Dipped Boo-nanas

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium organic banana
  • 1/2 cup organic greek yogurt
  • 8 mini chocolate chips for eyes
  • 4 popsicle sticks

 

Cut the banana in half, and then slice open each of the halves to make four quarters. Insert the popsicle sticks into the bananas and freeze the bananas on a cookie sheet with wax paper for 30 minutes. When the bananas are partially frozen, fill a shallow cup with yogurt. Carefully dip each partially frozen banana into the yogurt to coat. Line the yogurt-coated bananas back on the parchment paper and add two mini chocolate chips for the eyes, then freeze until completely firm. Enjoy!

 

McIntosh Mummies with a Superfood Cashew Butter Yogurt Dip

Ingredients:

 

Slice each apple in half and trim off the apple core and seeds. Grab a peeler and start peeling strips on the face of the apple to make the “wraps” of the mummy! Add two mini chocolate chips for eyes onto the face of the apple. For the dip, mix the yogurt and cashew butter together until smooth.

 

 

Keep them at home for the kids to munch on, or take them to Halloween school parties as great shareable snacks!
