Healthy Halloween Recipes for Happy Ghouls and Goblins

Since your trick-or-treaters might be getting their fill of Halloween candy next week, we've rounded up some kid-friendly Halloween recipes that keep things on the healthier side. The best part about these recipes? They're fun to make as a whole family!

Banana Nice Cream Ghosts 

1-2 bananas
1 bar organic white chocolate
mini chocolate chips
popsicle sticks

Cut bananas in half and then slice down the middle. Insert popsicle sticks and freeze for at least 10 minutes. Melt the white chocolate and dip the banana quarters until completely covered. Place two chocolate chip "eyes" on the banana, and set in the freezer on a plate or baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Monster Mouths

1-2 green apples
Nut or seed butter
Sunflower seeds or peanuts
Googly eyes

Cut the middles out of each apple slice to make "mouths." Cover the top and bottom of each mouth with nut or seed butter and place sunflower seed or peanut teeth. Put a drop of nut or seed butter on the top of the apple slice where you want to place googly eyes. Be creative and get silly with this fun treat!

Grapefruit Jack-o-lanterns

Use a serrated knife to cut the top off a grapefruit and scoop the flesh out much like a pumpkin. Have your kids draw faces on their mini jack-o-lantern with a marker, and carve with a paring knife. Fill with a simple fruit salad (apples, grapefruit, berries, oranges, etc.) and you've got a healthy Halloween snack!
