The Absolute Best Healthy Halloween Candy Recipes

We love costumes, candy, and pumpkin-carving as much as ever. But we also know there’s a whole other side to Halloween—a world of spiritual significance to tap into. So, leading up to October 31, we’re sharing content aimed to help you connect with your transcendent potential and more effectively create the life you want, from the inside out. In other words, to manifest magic.

Today, we’re sharing antioxidant-packed Halloween treats that will satisfy your sweet tooth and leave you feeling totally vibrant.

While you may have given up artificial flavor and sugar-laden store-bought candy, there's no reason to be sitting around munching celery stalks at your Halloween festivities (unless you want to, in which case, you do you!).

We've rounded up the absolute best of the healthy Halloween candy recipes, so you can have your (antioxidant and protein-packed) Snickers bar and eat it, too. Be a good fairy and give it out to trick-or-treaters (everything on this list is kid-tested and approved!), or embrace your inner witch and keep it all for yourself.
