I absolutely love Halloween candy when it comes around. Not all of it, of course, but I have a hard time saying no to things like smarties, twix bars, and york peppermint patties. Because I absolutely love these, I thought it would be good to share a post of sugar free Halloween treats because my boyfriend and I are really trying to cut down on the amount of sugar we eat. According to WHO (World Health Organization), each person should be having no more than 6 teaspoons of sugar per day (or 25 grams). If you think about the amount of sugar that shows up in store bought foods alone, not to mention candies, that is a LOT of sugar! Since I know many of you probably love the delicious and festive fall and Halloween treats as much as I do, but maybe you want to enjoy them with a little less guilt and health concern this year, I put together a list of some delicious treats that are either sugar free or you can substitute SF or low sugar ingredients (stevia, honey, etc) in place of regular sugar, if you like.
Delicious Sugar Free Halloween Treats!
Pumpkin Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups from Chocolate Covered Katie
This recipe uses very little to no sugar. She uses an alternative sweetener (which I think is stevia-based), but you can sub sugar in or out or use honey in place of her sweetener however you want. It’s totally up to you. I love that she includes pumpkin in the recipe and makes it so seasonally delicious! She has one of the BEST healthy dessert blogs I’ve seen so I basically follow her religiously.
Sugar Free Dirt Pudding from yours truly
I thought I’d share this SF dirt pudding recipe again that I made the other day. It’s delicious and it’s perfect for lazy people like me who don’t want to make everything from scratch. It’s completely sugar free and looks really festive when you layer them into shot glasses or small baking cups for fall and Halloween parties!
Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream from Dessert Bullet
This recipe looks incredible and doesn’t use sugar additives of any kind. It’s high in protein, gluten-free, sugar free, and low fat. It’s also a really simple recipe which I found surprising as well!
Healthy Oreos from Chocolate Covered Katie
You probably know from my instagram that I love oreos, but having them all the time is bad for me! They’re super high in sugar and, while delicious, tend to keep me up at night if I have them after dinner. This recipe uses sugar alternatives, again, but you can swap them in or out for others like regular sugar, honey, or stevia baking blends.
Sugar Free Peppermint Patties from Sugar Free Mom
As I said, I love peppermint patties, mostly frozen, and these are a totally sugar free version to enjoy! The recipe is easy enough, but she uses a liquid stevia sweetener so you might need to swap out with whatever you have on hand or get this in a specialty store before you make this.
Vegan Healthy Twix Bars from Chocolate Covered Katie
This particular recipe is not sugar free, but she uses very little sugar and uses dates in place of sugar for the caramel. You can use alternatives to the small amount of sugar in this, as you like, but either way, they’re likely the healthier twix candy bar recipe you’ll find anywhere online!
Pumpkin Truffles from Low Carb Yum
This recipe for pumpkin truffles uses a bunch of alternative sweeteners that you can purchase online, in specialty stores or just swap out for low-sugar sweeteners. It’s easy enough to customize and still includes healthier ingredients which is something that stood out to me. These look perfect for Halloween parties, especially if you plan on having a dinner party or something.
Sugar Free Brownies from Sugar Free Like Me
This brownies recipe sounds so delicious! It’s both sugar free and low carb so it’s perfect for anyone who is following a special diet or has a condition like diabetes, PCOS, or any kind of insulin issues where you are controlling the amount of sugar you intake. Nobody should be deprived of their love for brownies and this kind of recipe makes that possible 😉
Superfood Chocolate Bars from Chocolate Covered Katie
These chocolate bars are an amazing alternative for anyone who loves chocolate, but these have some health benefits and are way lower in sugar! Also, you can make them as thin or thick as you like, but be aware of portions. These are probably a lot cheaper than store bought dark chocolate bars as well so it’s a great way to save some cash and you could freeze or refrigerate what you won’t use right away.
Delicious Protein Cinnamon Rolls from @StorybookBeauty IG
I made these protein cinnamon rolls last year on IG from a Tone It Up recipe that I changed slightly to use what I had on hand. It wasn’t sugar free, but it was high in protein and you could swap the sugar out for a stevia baking blend or whatever you want to use and it would taste just as good. These were SO DELICIOUS that I didn’t miss cinnamon rolls so definitely give them a try if you want a healthier version!
