Eating smart at Halloween isn't impossible, and I’m going to show you just how easy it is with some decadent healthy Halloween recipes that also happen to be vegan.
No one said you had to nosh on celery and carrots the day of Halloween while your friends eat candy.
Just make yourself something healthy, which they’ll actually probably ask you if they can have too.
Just be sure to have these healthy Halloween recipes handy, since you might get a few requests from your friends!
1. Peanut Butter Krispy Ghost Treats
Almost everyone I know loves sweet rice krispie treats, and these peanut butter ghost rice krispies are one of my favorite healthy Halloween recipes because they’re better than the original.
They’re rich, chewy, sweet and covered in a delicious, healthy frosting.
Make these for a Halloween party, or for your kids to take to school.
Or, if you can manage to make them last, keep them around at your home the week of Halloween for a festive, cute treat display.
Serves: 12-16 squares
3 cups brown rice cereal krispies
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp peanut butter (or another nut butter, or sunbutter)
1/2 cup sticky sweetener (agave, honey, coconut nectar, or brown rice syrup work well)
melted coconut butter
popsicle sticks or skewers (optional)
mini dairy-free chocolate chips for the eyes
Mix your nut butter, sweetener, and salt.
Melt (either in the microwave or stove) until it can be stirred into a lump-free paste, then add the vanilla extract and pour over the cereal.
Stir very well, making sure to coat all the crispies.
Line a pan (8×8) with wax paper and spread the mixture evenly into the pan.
Place a sheet of wax paper on top of the mixture, then press down as firmly as you can.
Really press it down, and use a can or book to press even more firmly!
Freeze for at least 30 minutes before slicing, then insert popsicle sticks if desired.
These treats can be stored in the freezer, in the fridge, or loosely covered in a cool, dry place.
