Check out these fun & healthy Halloween treats by low carb food bloggers!
Halloween is near, the yearly sugar fest that is only matched by Easter and Christmas. It’s a treat or treat bonanza, with a big payday for retailers and families stocking up on cheap candy weeks ahead as if their lives depend on it. Newsflash: Stores do not run out of sweets! And we all know what happens to a stash of goodies at home. It mysteriously shrinks over time 🙂
Roaming the streets dressed up as zombies and ghosts while collecting bucketfuls of sweets is one of the great pleasures of childhood. I wouldn't dream of suggesting you should forbid your children to join in or take away their bounty.
It's best to take a deep breath and remind yourself that it is more important to reduce sugar consumption throughout the whole year rather than focusing all attention on one single day.
Here's an idea for you: Why not throw your own sugar free party with healthy Halloween treats? Simply crowd out the junk with healthy Halloween candy, sweets and savoury treats that children and adults will love.
Chocolate Peanut Spider Cookies by All Day I Dream About Food
How adorable are these little guys? I almost want one as a pet. These easy gluten free thumbprint cookies are made with a good measure of peanut butter, which makes them deliciously soft. The filling is a rich sugar-free chocolate ganache. Finger-licking goodness!

So many adorable ideas, and I just love that these treats cut WAAAAAY back on all that Halloween sugar! Just proves that Halloween doesn't have to be all about the candy in order to be Spook-tacularly fun!!
I absolutely agree 🙂
There are some really fun ideas here!
What a wonderful collection, Katrin! I love especially those Apple Sun Butter Teeth Bites. What a fun idea! We have tons of apples and all the other ingredients too, so we will definitely prepare those with my son. Thank you for including my brain recipe!
Awesome collection! Thanks for including my truffle recipe. I need to start making my Halloween treats.
It was my pleasure. They look so yummy! My kids are begging me to carve that pumpkin and I am trying to convince them that carving a watermelon is just as good (which is so much easier!). They are not buying it though 🙂
Such a cute Halloween treat round up. My kids would love these, especially the creepy ones.
the creepier the better!
Haha! My daughter got totally grossed out by the apple teeth, which means mission accomplished. I had a supermarket delivery only this morning, with 6 slabs of Kerrygold for my morning coffee. I think one has to be set aside for peanut butter fat bombs.

This roundup is so stinkin' cute! Thanks for including my recipe. My kids thought the apples with the "teeth" were especially great for Halloween! So great. Thanks.
An awesome round-up, Katrin! Thanks for including me! 🙂
Sarah, I've always loved Snickers. It HAD to be there!
