Halloween is coming soon so what better way to get prepared than by making Halloween-themed recipes. Halloween is one of the most prominent holidays of the year for many people, especially children! It’s a fun holiday where kids dress up, go trick or treating, and even adults attend costume parties – but the celebrations are usually filled with carbs and sugary treats.So, if you’re on a weight loss journey or a low carb diet, you might find it difficult to enjoy yourself when you have nothing to eat and are surrounded by candy and sweets. But don’t be concerned!

There are plenty of healthy, low-carb, and delicious Halloween desserts you can eat while still having fun. So, in this post, I’m going to share some deliciously fun, healthy, low carb, and spooky Halloween desserts that won’t ruin your low carb or keto diet.

Apple Cookies with Peanut Butter – 359 calories

You can decorate these cookies in a variety of ways to make them spooky. For example, after cutting apples into thin and wide slices, you can use a cookie cutter to cut it into a shape, such as a bat or a pumpkin. If you leave it as a circle, you can add edible eyes to it.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Apple, small – 77 calories
  • 3 tablespoon Peanut butter (Tbsp) – 282 calories
  • 1 Cinnamon, dash – 0 calories

Directions:

Slice the apple however you like. On each slice, spread peanut butter. Garnish with cinnamon. 

Apple Samoas – 269 calories

Decoration ideas can be similar to the one mentioned above. Plus, with these, you can drizzle the caramel in a pattern, such as spider webs.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Apple, small – 77 calories
  • ⅔ Tbsp Chocolate chips – 46.9 calories
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut chips – 45 calories
  • 1 oz Caramel – 100 calories

Directions:

Cut the apples and remove the core of the slices. Melt the caramel in the microwave for 60 seconds. Drizzle caramel over apple slices. Chocolate chips and coconut flakes on top.

2/3 tablespoon = 2 teaspoon (for chocolate chips)

Bonus tip: make two “cookies” and eat the remaining apple slices on the side to ensure that the two “cookies” have a good amount of toppings!

Banana Snickers – 289 calories

You can also attach tiny legs to these to make them resemble a long bug.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp Chocolate chips – 140 calories
  • ⅛ cup Peanuts (cups) – 96 calories
  • 1 Salt, dash – 0 calories

Cut the banana in half lengthwise. Crush the nuts in a small container (such as a baggie) with a hard object (e.g. a hammer, or similar kitchen equipment). Microwave chocolate chips in a small container for 30 seconds, or until melted. Sprinkle chocolate and nuts on top of banana slices. Alternatively, you can eat them right away or freeze them for a few hours. 

Apple and “Reese’s” Dip – 241 calories

To make it look like a spider, place fake spider webs on both sides of the small bowl or ramekin in which you’re serving the dip (the bowl is the body of the spider, and you’re adding the legs).

Ingredients:

  • 1 Apple, small – 77 calories
  • 1 Tbsp Peanut butter (Tbsp) – 94 calories
  • 1 Tbsp Chocolate chips – 70 calories

Directions:

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine peanut butter and chocolate chips and microwave for 30-45 seconds, or until smooth. Slice the apple. Dip the apple in the peanut butter chocolate mixture.

Blueberry Chocolate Bites – 289 calories

To make them look like tiny bats, add some bat “wings” to them.

Ingredients:

  • ⅛ cup Blueberries, fresh – 8.75 calories
  • 4 Tbsp Chocolate chips – 280 calories
  • 1 Salt, dash – 0 calories

Directions:

Melt chocolate chips in a small microwave-safe bowl for 60 seconds, then stir with a spoon and continue heating in 30 second intervals until smooth. Fill a muffin tin halfway with chocolate. Use a silicone muffin tin to make small circle shapes, or line a small baking sheet with wax paper and make small circle shapes without a muffin tin. This recipe yields 4 “mini muffin” bites or 2 regular-sized “muffin” bites. Garnish with fruit and salt. Allow at least 10 minutes to chill in the freezer.

Note: Pomegranate seeds can also be used; use 1/2 pomegranate seeds and 1/2 blueberries if desired, but just blueberries are perfectly fine – and cheaper!
