Spooky and Healthy Halloween Treat

Now that my children are both of school age, it’s become more difficult to avoid some of the less desirable foods—like all that candy post trick-or-treating. Instead of telling them what they can’t have, I try and get creative with foods they actually ask to eat. My kids are in love with apples and this time of year, they’re absolutely delicious. Here’s our go-to healthy Halloween treat to embrace the holiday.

These monster mouths are one of my favorite spooky treats:


  • 6 to 8 apples
  • organic almond butter (can substitute any nut or seed butter)
  • 1 cup of slivered Almonds
  • 1 cup of pine nuts
  • 10 strawberries (optional)


  • Take a 4-5 inch slice of apple with the middle carved out
  • Fill it up with a nut or seed butter of your choice
  • Use pine nuts and slivered almonds for teeth
  • Add a slice of strawberry for a tongue
