Healthy Halloween Treats | Weekend Wanderings

Orange Plastic Bucket

Happy weekend everybody! With Halloween right around the corner, I’m sure you’ve seen the influx of candy and treats in your local grocery store. If you’re anything like me, your perpetual sweet tooth is even stronger during this season, with chocolate and candies available at what seems like every turn. I’m never (ever) one to turn down anything sweet, so we thought we’d take some time to research some healthy sweets you can prepare and enjoy during the Halloween festivities. We’ve included some recipes for those with dietary restrictions and some that are kid friendly to make sure no matter who you are—you get your own (trick or) TREAT!
