We love Halloween! Instead of having that familiar “candy debate” with ourselves this year, we’re taking things in another direction. Let’s talk about candies we can eat guilt-free, sugar-free, day or night, vegan or not.
Most people don’t eat the most healthy during Halloween. It’s also probably true a lot of people give themselves the freedom and leniency to not care about this during this holiday season. But to this we say it certainly doesn’t hurt to have a few naturally sweetened recipes around. We often spend more time in the kitchen this time of year and choosing maple syrup over the corn syrup isn’t any harder. These 13 candies are healthier than anything coming from the store and without sugar, dairy or soy, they will keep you feeling great until the wee hours of All Hollow’s Eve!
Chocolate Covered Pretzel Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Truffles: Each salty bite is loaded with peanut flavor and covered in chocolate. These no-bake truffles are the perfect “last minute” dessert.
Pumpkin Chia Pudding Parfaits: These pumpkin parfaits may not technically be a candy, but they sure are sweet and addicting. Pumpkin pie flavored parfaits are perfect for breakfast or dessert and these are loaded with protein!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pops: Let’s splurge on our favorite treats. Eat cookie dough pops in a healthier way this Halloween with a secret ingredient!
Homemade Butterfingers: Are you wondering what we’ll be eating this Halloween? You’re looking at them. Vegan Butterfingers are just as decadent as the packaged ones but feel a whole lot better.
Raw Caramel Sauce: When you want caramel without the hassle of cooking, this caramel has you covered. The essence of this caramel is spot on right down to it’s texture. Add it to chocolate treats or ice cream or dip with crisp apples.
No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Macaroons: These peanut butter and chocolate morsels are packed with sweet coconut in every bite.
Gooey Almond Cereal Party Mix: You won’t be able to keep your hands out of this party mix. You’ll end up with sticky fingers but that’s part of the fun.
Candied Clementine Pumpkins: Edible pumpkins are a fun way to dress up your snack menu. Trick yourself into eating healthier and treat yourself to these anytime!
Chocolate Pretzel Pecan Clusters: One of our first recipes made naturally sweet! Pretzels and pecans pack in terrific texture in these chocolate covered clusters.
Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars: These cheesecake bars are so deliciously sweet and rich with cheesecake flavor, you’ll want these bars over most traditional candies.
Peanut Butter Acorns: Amp up the fall festivities and pack in your protein with these peanut butter truffles. Their chocolate covered tops add a sweetness similar to Buckeyes.
Homemade Snickers Bars: Who knew Snickers could be healthy?! These traditional candy bars are delicious and easy with a no-bake recipe!
Zebra Striped Caramel Popcorn: Remember this popcorn we shared not too long ago? We can’t get enough of it. Devour every chocolate and caramel filled bite!
