10 Healthy Snacks and Cocktails for Your Halloween Party

Halloween is fast approaching, and if you’re classy enough to be having an actual Halloween party, rather than just downing too many shots and heading out, you’re in luck, because we’ve rounded up 10 healthy and delicious recipes for you to enjoy this Halloween:

1. Vegan and Gluten-Free Black Bean Brownies by Minimalist Baker

These are not only completely delicious, but they’re also good for you, packing plenty of fibre and other great nutritional benefits. Baking these in a muffin tin will produce perfect bite-size brownies – perfect for a party as no plates will be needed. To make them a little more Halloween appropriate, I’d recommend topping them with pistachios (the green will make a nice colour contrast) or any Halloween themed sprinkles you can find.

2. Multi-Grain Pumpkin Spiced Donuts by Turntable Kitchen

Make a big batch of these, then save some for your drunk pig out at the end of the night. Trust me.

3. Sour Apple Spritzers from MyRecipes.com

This cocktail is green, which makes it Halloween appropriate, tastes good, and isn’t as high in sugar and fat as most cocktails you’d find at a party. It’ll taste just as good out of a red solo cup as a martini glass.

4. Vegan Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls by Eat, Live, Run. 

Anything vegan has got to be kind of healthy, right? Make a few batches and cut each roll into bite-size quarters, making sure to leave one or two to one side for breakfast the next day. Yum.

5. Cheesy Cauliflower Pizza Bites by Blogilates.

These are definitely a healthier alternative to just ordering a few pizzas for your party guests, and are actually really tasty. One serving (6 of the little bites) only contains 98 calories, so you can stay guilt-free while you indulge.

6. Pumpkin and Apple Cider Cocktail by Serious Eats.

Feed your pumpkin spiced latte addiction with this deliciously spicy pumpkin cocktail. Try finding some Halloween themed glass-toppers to make this drink a little more festive.

7. Pumpkin Chia Pudding Parfait by Oh She Glows.

This dessert would be ideal for a sophisticated Halloween dinner party. It feels indulgent but isn’t too unhealthy, using nutritious chia seeds in place of the typical heavy pudding most parfaits use.

8. Savoury Pumpkin Puffs by Martha Stewart.

These puffs don’t actually use pumpkin, so you’re free to use any type of cookie cutter to make them fit your Halloween theme. They’re cheesy and a little bit spicy, making them the perfect snacks to nibble on while drinking.

9. Baked Apples from Channel 4. 

Really easy to make and perfect for a chilly night in ignoring trick or treat-ers.

10. Frozen ‘Boo’-nana Pops by Skinny Taste

These frozen banana pops are designed for kids, but who cares, they look good. Not only are they healthy and tasty, but they’ll also give you an adequate energy boost for the night ahead.
