Yes, the main focus at Halloween is on sweets and candy. But if you’re trying to stay healthy while still serving spooky snacks there are plenty of options out there. We collected 13 of our favorite ghoulish recipes to enjoy.
1. Boo-Nana Pops: Frozen bananas (covered in chocolate or white chocolate) are one of our favorite treats, and these ghosts on a stick do not disappoint. (via Skinny Taste)
2. Cheese Witches’ Brooms: These party appetizers are downright wicked. (via Cocinando Con Catman)
3. Eyeball Platter: Okay, some of these are more dessert than healthy snack, but the banana peanut butter eyeball should fit both the healthy and spooky bill. (via Snack Picks)
4. Jack-o’-Lantern Rice Balls: These tasty rice balls get their bright orange hue from the rice being cooked with carrot juice. (via Apron Strings)
5. Mummy Toast: Think of these toasts like mini pizzas. Just stick them under the broiler or in the toaster oven to get the cheese nice and melted. (via Spaceships and Laser Beams)
6. Veggie Skeleton: This might be our favorite new way to serve crudités. Bell peppers as ribs? Genius! (via Feeding Frenzy)

8. Jack-o’-Lantern Sweet Potatoes: Make these baked sweet potato fries by cutting out faces before they go in the oven. (via Simply Stated)
9. Clementine Pumpkins: These have to be one of the easiest halloween treats to make. Just peel a few clementines and make stems out of celery sticks. (via Spaceships and Laser Beams)
10. Poached Pear Ghosts: These might be more appropriate for a grown up Halloween party, especially if you poach the pears in wine. (via Wag Doll)
11. Candy Corn Fruit Cocktail: Layer in pineapples and orange segments topped with whipped cream for these Halloween themed fruit cups. (via Family Fresh Meals)
