20 Healthy Halloween Recipes

Getting ready to have a big Halloween bash at your home or are you try to figure out what to bring to your friends Halloween party?  Well, here are some delicious healthy Halloween recipes that won’t cause a cavity or add a few unwanted pounds on the scale.

Mexican Pumpkin Punch

Celebrate Halloween with a drink in a pumpkin! Mix pumpkin puree into the punch, then garnish with pineapple chunks, pecans and a splash of rum, if desired.

 Candy Corn Chicken Quesadillas

Simple, flavorful food made fun for Halloween! This filling chicken quesadilla is laced with salsa, sour cream, and green chilies and topped with cheese in a candy corn pattern.

Sweet-and-Spicy Pepitas Popcorn Balls

Mix fresh-popped popcorn with caramel and toasted pumpkin seeds for an updated take on this Halloween classic.

Gluten-Free Spiderweb Cupcakes

These healthier treats are made with almond flour, coconut oil, and unsweetened applesauce. Make the creepy-crawly design by dragging a toothpick through the center of concentric circles of icing.

Pumpkin Caramels

Flavor these individually-sized caramels with maple syrup and pumpkin puree, then mix in toasted pumpkin seeds for flavor and crunch.

Mummy Hot Dogs

This adorable snack is a Greatist Halloween classic! For a healthier take, swap in a soy dog or low-sodium chicken sausage. Our mummy is pretty well-wrapped, but try leaving some gaps for a spookier look.

Ghostly Pumpkin Pudding

These adorable individually-sized puddings are perfect for Halloween. Top pumpkin pudding with a meringue topper and candy “eyes.”

Snack-o’-Lantern Fruit Cups

Looking for a festive way to serve dessert? Look no further—these carved-out oranges make a perfect container for fruit salad.

Blood and Bones

This recipe provides two spooky recipes—bone-shaped meringues made of egg whites and sugar, and red-colored semisweet hot chocolate. Serve them together for a totally grown-up Halloween dessert.

Frozen “Boo”-nana Pops

These scarily yummy frozen banana pops are dipped in white chocolate, but for a healthier version try dunking in low-fat vanilla yogurt instead.

Witch’s Brooms

Take a break from all the sweet stuff with these savory snacks. The witchy nibbles are made of sliced cheese, pretzel sticks, and chives—they’re magically easy to make.

Chocolate-Date Pumpkin Tartlets

Blend together dark chocolate, Medjool dates, almond butter, and Cheerios to make these delicious grab ‘n’ go bites.

Banana Mummies

These frozen desserts are made without gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, or nuts, so they’ll appeal to any guest at your Halloween party. What’s in them, then? Nothing but bananas, cocoa butter, and easy-to-make coconut sugar.

Carrot Rice Jack-o’-Lanterns

Take a step away from the mountains of candy and try this savory Halloween snack instead. The healthy secret behind these cute pumpkins? Carrot juice.

Spider Bites

Three ingredients are all you need to make Sandra Lee’s easy spider bites. The chocolate-covered pretzels are just creepy enough for young kids to enjoy.

Vegan Peeps

These little ghosties are made with vegan marshmallow cream and a dusting of sparkly granulated sugar. Draw the faces with an edible marker or use chocolate bits or sprinkles.

Peanut Butter Pumpkins

Make a whole pumpkin patch of these no-bake treats and stay energized all night long. These pre-party bites are made with natural peanut butter, flax seeds, and rolled oats (a little chocolate doesn’t hurt either).

Frankenstein Marshmallow Pops

While chocolate-dipped marshmallows aren’t exactly a health food, these little monsters were so cute we couldn’t leave them off the list! They’re practically too adorable to eat.

Deviled Ham Eyeball Sandwich

Jeff Mauro turns traditional ham salad on white bread into a bloodshot eyeball sandwich with the help of pimento-stuffed green olives and a little bit of ketchup.

La Llorona (Weeping Woman) Martini

Combine brandy, Angostura bitters, and lemon and lime juices for this potent, delicious cocktail. A touch of dry ice creates the spooky wisps of smoke. Read the story of La Llorona—Spanish for Weeping Woman—for more Halloween fun (but maybe keep the lights on!).
