Healthy Halloween Recipes & Ideas
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays of the year. There are so many things about spooky season that I look forward to, but my favorite part is definitely all of the Halloween treats that never seem to be in short supply. I love Halloween candy, but it’s good to have some balance throughout the month of October.
That being said, you don’t have to sacrifice the spooky vibes when making easy healthy snacks. These healthy Halloween snack ideas are perfect for any Halloween party for adults or kids. If you are looking for Halloween things to do at home, spooky school lunch ideas, or easy snacks to make during October, you’ve come to the right place.

Making “franken kiwis” is so much fun and can be done in no time. When making ours, we piped on his mouth and his stitches with chocolate. The bolts are made with chocolate covered pretzels, and the candy eyeballs were stuck on with piped chocolate as well.
To make the piping chocolate, I’ve found that the easiest method is to microwave a bowl of chocolate chips. Scoop the chocolate into a piping bag, and you’re good to go! Your Frankenstein kiwis will be a perfect healthy Halloween snack that can be enjoyed by everyone.
How To Make Banana Ghosts
Banana ghosts are an extremely easy healthy snack to make for halloween. All you need are bananas, chocolate chips, and some lemon juice.
Cut your bananas in half, and spread a little bit of lemon juice on them. This will prevent your banana ghosts from turning brown. Then, add two mini chocolate chips for the eyes and one normal sized chocolate chip for the mouth.
Candy Corn Fruit Kabobs
For our candy corn fruit kabobs, we used pineapples, cantaloupe, and bananas. Again, to prevent your bananas from turning brown, spread a small amount of lemon juice on them. Candy corn fruit kabobs are a great way to liven up your halloween fruit tray, and are one of the easiest healthy halloween snack ideas out there.
To make eyeball grapes, you’ll need green grapes, melted chocolate, and candy eyeballs. I would recommend melting chocolate chips in a bowl and dipping the tops of the grapes in the chocolate.
Then, place the candy eyes on the chocolate before it hardens. When we first started assembling our eyeball grapes, we had some trouble keeping them from falling over while drying. Our solution was to cut off the very bottom of each grape so that it would be flat and we could stand them up straight.

Like their name suggests, these little pumpkins are made with peeled clementines. There are plenty of different options for the stem, but we liked the look of celery.
We cut our celery into pretty thin sticks so that it could slide right into the center of the clementines. These easy clementine pumpkins are another great snack for school lunches, class parties, halloween fruit and veggie trays, etc.
Another great way to use your clementines during spooky season is by making these incredibly easy jack-o-lantern cuties. This is another one of my favorite Halloween things to do at home.
Jack-o-lantern cuties double as a kids craft and an easy healthy snack. For the faces, we used sharpies to draw them on. However, if you are worried about using sharpies, the jack-o-lantern face stickers are a great alternative.
