Easy Halloween Recipes the Kids Will Love

I love Halloween but not the tons of candy that follows. That's why I decided to get in the habit of making healthy Halloween treats for my family and my kiddos. Sure, they can have candy every once in a while but I'd much rather them enjoy a healthy treat after school than go straight for the pantry where their Halloween stash awaits!  Below are a few ideas I've found throughout the year. I have changed some of the recipes to make them healthier and easier too :) Enjoy!

Pumpkins and Goblins

Cut bananas in half and insert 2 chocolate chips for the eyes and one larger one for the mouth in the banana backwards.  Peel tangerines (I use the Cuties).  Cut celery stalks down the center and chop into inch long pieces. Insert in the center of the tangerine.

Sweet Potato Jack O' Lanterns

Slice sweet potato into 1/2 inch pieces. Cut out shakes in the center for eyes and mouth with a knife.  Spray with olive oil spray or lightly brush them with it.  Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake at 400 for 20 minutes.

Chattering Teeth
Cut apples in half then into 1/2 inch thick slices.  Spread your favorite nut butter on one side of two slices.  Place miniature marshmallows in the center of one of the slices and add the other slice on top.
