Halloween can be tricky. At every turn, kids are tempted by sugar-laden goodies and candies that can be hard to pass up. What's a parent to do? Don’t get spooked. There are plenty of ways to create fiendishly fun treats that are healthy too!

There’s Something Brewing

Start Halloween morning off with a Witches Brew Breakfast Smoothie!  Chock full of vitamin rich fruits and nutrient dense chia seeds, the kids will never know this ghoulish concoction is good for them: 

  • 9 oz can of coconut milk
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup frozen blackberries
  • 1 banana
  • 1 kiwi fruit
  • 1 cup of water


  1. Divide the chia seeds between 2 glasses
  2. Divide 3/4 cup of coconut milk between the two glasses
  3. Mix and refrigerate for 1 hour to set
  4. Cut the kiwi fruit in the shape of a bat and place in the glass on top of the chia seed mix 
  5. Blend the blackberries, banana and left over kiwi fruit with the water and remainder of the coconut milk
  6. Pour on top of the chia seed mix and serve immediately
Point The Way To Fun    

Kids love things that are creepy and if they are yummy at the same time it's even better! Try these delicious Zombie Fingers that are sure to be a hit:

  • 9oz pitted dates
  • 3.5 oz dark chocolate
  • 3 tbsp smooth peanut butter (or other nut butter)
  • 4 tbsp oats
  • 3 tbsp sliced almonds


  1. Combine the first 4 ingredients in the food processor into a crumbly consistency
  2. Shape the mixture to look like fingers (the spookier the better)
  3. Press sliced almonds on each for the fingernails
  4. Chill for approximately 30 min before serving

‘Spook’tacular Treats 

There is no better way to get your little ghosts and goblins excited about Halloween than to let them stir things up in the kitchen. Try these delicious, party- ready treats the kids can help create:

Haunted Pumpkin Cookies

These simple to make cookies are soft, delicious and kid friendly. For an added twist have the kids decorate them with dark chocolate chips or nuts to make them extra delicious!

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • Dark chocolate chips or chopped nuts (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350ª 
  2. Grease 2 baking sheets
  3. Add pumpkin, oats, syrup, peanut butter and pumpkin pie spice to a large bowl and mix with a hand mixer mix for about 30 seconds
  4. Wet hands, form the dough into tablespoon sized balls (dough should be sticky) and place on cookie sheets
  5. Gently press down each cookie with your fingers or spoon (you don't want to squash them, just flatten them into a cookie shape)
  6. Decorate top of each cookie with dark chocolate chips (about 5-8) and/or chopped nuts (optional)
  7. Bake for 15-17 minutes

Cute Clementine Pumpkins:

Have you ever noticed that a clementine is very similar in shape to a small pumpkin? When you draw either scary or cute faces with black markers right on the peel, they can look just like jack-o-lanterns. This simple project will get your kids showing their creative side and clamoring for fruit to snack on at the same time!

Looking for even more Halloween treats that kids will gobble up? The new Pumpkin Spice Protein Power Ball flavor is perfect for the season. With so many devilishly delicious treats to choose from, the only dilemma will be which costume to wear!
