Halloween is synonymous with two things: fun costumes and candy! But that doesn't mean you have to load yourself and your kids with sugar-laden sweets. There are actually some really fun, creative healthy Halloween recipes you can make to add a little bit of nutrition and extra fun back into this festive holiday.

Check out this list of my top 10 favorite healthy Halloween recipes this year and try them out for yourself.

1. Spooky Halloween Cupcakes

When it comes to making healthy Halloween recipes, these Spooky Halloween Cupcakes are a must! This recipe features a fun, chocolatey twist on the traditional mummy look—and they’re also incredibly delicious.

Personally, I’ve found them to be perfect for October parent-teacher conferences, PTO meetings, classroom Halloween parties, or your own Halloween party.

6. Halloween Spider Snacks

Sometimes you just need to revert to an old classic, but with a twist. And that's exactly what these spider snacks do with the timeless kid-friendly ants on a log snack.

I recommend serving these for after-school snacks around Halloween or even was a healthy option for a kid-focused Halloween party. You can also give them to your kids before heading out for a night of Trick-or-Treating to help curb those candy cravings.
