Halloween is a holiday known for its sweets. In just one night, kids are given overwhelming amounts of candy, which tends to lead to angry cavities and excess energy. There are other downsides to having unhealthy treats around the house, but just because candy isn’t a healthy option doesn’t mean that we still can’t enjoy this “sweet” holiday! So, we asked some of our favorite RD bloggers what they like to serve for Halloween parties, and they didn’t disappoint! These recipes are filled with healthy food choices (such as almonds, pumpkin, and whole grains), while still being decadent and festive. Enjoy!

  1. These look so good! Thanks for sharing. My favorite Halloween party recipe is fried apple rings. Mix together 2 tbsp sugar, 1/4 tsp baking powder, 1/8 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 cup applesauce, 1 cup almond milk, 1 cup of flour. Cut apples into rings and coat with batter. Then fry each one, add a little more cinnamon sugar. Best part it’s completely vegan.
