Here are 9 Paleo Halloween Recipes. Halloween is all about sweets. But where does that leave you when you are on the Paleo diet? An occasional sweet indulgence is perfectly fine on the Paleo diet and since holidays are especially hard to stick to the Paleo diet, I wanted to do this blog post all about Halloween recipes for those of us on a Paleo diet. I wanted to help you find some good healthy Halloween recipes.
I started looking for good Halloween recipes that are Paleo and all of the good blogger’s Halloween recipes were about candy, cookies, doughnuts, muffins, cupcakes, and tarts. All those things have their place but what if you want to have a semi-healthy party? That’s why I chose some recipes that are not all sweet but healthy and delicious at the same time. I have some cookie and candy recipes too but just so you know, there are other choices.
Besides, I think a healthy party makes for a happy party. The kids aren’t all running around going crazy from a sugar high. You can still have fun and be healthy. Have fun trying out all of these recipes, they all look so fun to make and eat. You shouldn’t want for fun Halloween recipes now.
What do you make for dinner on Halloween night? I swear that’s the hardest night to make dinner. My children always want to be the first in the neighborhood to trick-or-treat and do NOT want to eat dinner first – but if we wait until we’re done, they are starving and just want to eat candy. I used to order pizza, but that’s out of the question now. So most of the time I make something in the crock pot. That way dinner can be ready when we get home and I can eat a little here and there and daddy can eat at a normal time while he hands out the candy.

1. Halloween Cookies – 40 Aprons
Tapioca Flour – Almond Flour – Coconut Sugar – Palm Shortening – Baking Powder – Real Salt – Vanilla – Egg – Honey – Arrowroot Powder – Vanilla
Who doesn’t love a good sugar cookie for any holiday? So why not Halloween too. The best part is these sugar cookies are totally Paleo even the frosting. You could have a fun party if you make the cookies ahead of time and let the kids frost their own and then eat them. My mom has done this before and the kids love it. They really like to personalize them and make them their very own.
2. Chocolate Pumpkin Tart – Unconventional Baker
Coconut Oil – Maple Syrup – Vanilla – Pumpkin Puree – Real Salt – Cinnamon – Coconut Flour – Tapioca Flour – Cocoa Powder – Cloves – Allspice – Nutmeg – Almond Milk – Coconut Butter
Here we have a pumpkin chocolate tart with a spider web on top. the cobweb is extremely easy to make. Plus I think it’s a great way to dress this tart up for a special occasion. All you do to make the spiderweb is squirt the spiderweb mixture into a squirt bottle and pout it onto the of the tart in a circular spiral motion. Using a wooden skewer start at the end of the tart and gently draw a line from the center to the outside edge. Repeat all around the tart until the spiderweb is made.
3. Witch Finger Cookies – Food Faith Fitness
Honey – Coconut Oil – Vanilla – Almond Extract – Coconut Flour – Real Salt – Almonds – Strawberries – Honey
These cookies are a lot more simple than they look. All you do is make cookie dough, roll it into finger shapes, make indentations with a knife to make it look like knuckles and finger joints. You then make a strawberry honey mixture, put it on the end to make them look like they are bleeding. Then you put sliver almonds on the fingernail end to make it look like a fingernail. The almond sticks to the jam just fine. It looks like the finger was just cut off because it’s bleeding on the other end too. Eww, scary. I wonder who is brave enough to actually eat these.
4. Spooky Banana Pops – Plaid and Paleo
Bananas – Cocoa Butter – Honey – Mini Chocolate Chips
You can’t get much easier than a banana dipped in white chocolate with mini chocolate chips stuck into the chocolate while it’s warm. With a popsicle stick suck into it. My mother made these at her last Halloween party for her grandchildren but without the chocolate. The younger kids loved them. Especially the very little ones that like to eat simple food.
5. Chocolate Covered Apples – Thriving on Paleo
Apples – Lemon Juice – Dark Chocolate – Nuts – Shredded Coconut – Raisins – Kosher Salt – Lollipop Sticks
Candied apples and Halloween just go together. I think it all started way back when because October is the time of year that apples are picked fresh from the trees. It’s harvest time! That’s when apples are the best. They are hard and crisp plus they are plentiful at harvest time. Apples taste so much better when they are fresh in October than after they’ve been in storage for 10 months or so. I’ve been to parties where they bob for apples and I’m telling you, it’s nigh onto to impossible. That is unless you want to drown to death. Besides apples are always better with chocolate on them. I think this is a really easy way to make and serve chocolate covered apples for a party. They are so fun to make took!
6. Veggie Skeleton – Feeding Frenzy
Lettuce – Olives – Celery – Baby Carrots – Bell Pepper – Mushrooms – Grape Tomatoes – Cauliflower – Broccoli – Cucumbers – Coconut Milk – Parsley – Drill – Garlic Powder – Onion Powder – Real Salt – Black Pepper
There is really no recipe for this cute little skeleton. You just buy these veggies, cut them and arrange them according to the picture. It does call for homemade mayonnaise and I’ve included a link to my homemade mayonnaise recipe above. Plus it is made with ranch dressing for the dip. I’ve included a link to a really good homemade Ranch Dressing & Dip that I like. The ingredients for it are included in the ingredient list above.
7. Halloween Apple Mouths – Paleo Leap
Apples – Almond Butter – Almonds – Lemon Juice
I can’t say that I’ve ever eaten a mouth before. But if you make these you can say that! I love how healthy they are. My mother has a Halloween party for her grandkids every year and she doesn’t serve sugar-filled treats. She tries really hard to make healthy fun treats. These mouths are something my mother would make. If you use sliced almonds that are already cute, which you would have to do. They’d make up pretty quickly. Get the kids to help, they always love helping make fun things for parties.
8. Candy Skull Crushers – Wallflower Kitchen
Coconut Oil – Cashew Nuts – Agave Nectar – Vanilla – Almond Milk – Goji Berries – Blackberries
These candies are easier to make than you’d think. All you do is make a mixture for the outside in a blender or something similar. Then you make another mixture with the berries. You fill the molds partway full with the cashew mixture, freeze it for a few minutes. Put a teaspoon of the berries mixture on top, freeze it for a few minutes. This makes sure it says in the middle. Then you pour the cashew mixture on top of it all. That’s it, just keep them in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve them so they’ll keep their shape.
9. Harry Potter Inspired Pumpkin Juice – A Saucy Kitchen
Pumpkin Puree – Water – Apricots or Apricot Juice – Apple Juice – Vanilla – Pumpkin Pie Spice – Lemon Juice – Coconut Sugar
Now you can make your own Harry Potter pumpkin juice without preservatives. Apparently, they serve this stuff at Harry Potter World in Universal Studios. I think they make the cutest healthiest drink for the best Halloween party ever. The best part is it is totally Paleo and healthy. I had a hard time finding some “light bulb cups” but I did finally find some that are affordable. Here’s to saving you a lot of time and money. Plastic Light Bulb Bubble & Cold Drink Cups Pack of 10
