October is the month of candy. Halloween brings endless bowls of drug store candy – M&Ms, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Candy Corn – all filled with sugar, artificial flavors, food dye, GMO cornstarch, and other scary ingredients! Plan ahead and you can avoid the usual crap by making your own healthier (but still tasty) treats!
Almond Butter Cups
Try these Paleo Almond Butter Cups with dark, fair trade chocolate (try this one sweetened with stevia), coconut oil, and coconut flour. Sweetened with a touch of maple syrup. Easy, healthy, and delicious!
Healthy Candy Corn
These Paleo Candy Corn Gummies will satisfy your candy corn cravings! Made with healthy ingredients like coconut milk, carrot juice, and turmeric – all held together with grass-fed gelatin – these candy corns are the perfect treat.
DIY Trail Mix
This is certainly not a new trick – but a very tried, true, and trusted one! Mix your own trail mix and create individual servings in paper snack bags. Try any raw or dry roasted seeds and nuts, coconut shreds, unsweetened 100% chocolate chips and anything else you want to jazz it up.
Scary Halloween Apple Mouths
Kids (and adults) will eat up these cute and healthy treats. Super easy and quick to make with only 4 ingredients – apples, almonds, almond butter, and lemon juice.
