Healthy Halloween Dessert Recipes You Will Actually Want To Eat

Fall is here, which of course means Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas are all right around the corner!

Now, if you’re someone like us who loves sweet treats, but also wants to stay on track with their nutrition… the holidays can certainly be a  bit of a challenge..

There are so many temptations being put in front of our face – especially around Halloween!

This entire holiday is essentially dedicated to dressing up and eating candy. We love candy probably just as much as you, but we’d prefer if there was a healthier alternative.

Guess what…there are plenty of healthier alternatives… most of which are definitely not all that fun and exciting. That’s why we came together to create some fun, and much healthier, alternative recipes for the spooky season!

Here are 4 sweet, delicious, and healthier Halloween recipes that you will want to try this week!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Ball Spiders

We love protein balls in our house because they’re packed with protein, they give you energy that lasts so much longer, and won’t cause you to crash later.

We saw these cute chocolate peanut butter spider cookies on Pinterest last week, and immediately thought that we could make a similarly cute but healthy Halloween treat with our chocolate peanut butter protein ball recipe.

These are SO ridiculously easy to make, and really fast. Seriously!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup natural peanut butter, crunchy or creamy
  • 1/4 cup raw honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 scoops heaping Millecor Peanut Butter Chocolate protein powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar free chocolate chips
  • 80 pretzel sticks

OPTIONAL TOPPINGS:

  • 40 small candy eyes (for looks)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Mix the nut butter, honey or maple syrup, cocoa powder, protein powder, and chocolate chips together until it forms a smooth dough.
  2. Roll pieces of dough into 24 balls which should be a little smaller than an inch in diameter.
  3. Place two candy eyes onto each chocolate peanut butter protein ball (if you’d like).
  4. Break 4 pretzel sticks in half to create 8 legs per ball.
  5. Refrigerate at least 10 minutes before eating. These can keep in the fridge for up to a week.
