With Halloween rapidly approaching, I got to thinking about some alternatives to the usual processed candy and treats. It’s hard to battle the rising tide of people telling you to “just have one” because it’s only “once a year”, so these top 13 Paleo Halloween Treats should help. There are a few which require a simple ingredient exchange if you’re strictly dairy free, but all of these are clearly a million percent better for you than the standard Halloween fare!
Candy Corn Inspired Parfaits from Rethink Simple
If you want to keep this strictly paleo, just swap out the heavy cream for coconut cream. These are pretty and delicious.
Pumpkin Caramels from Real Food Outlaws
3 ingredients and super cute to boot thanks to these cute little pumpkin shaped molds!
Pumpkin Pie Pudding from MOI!
Not to toot my own horn, but these are pretty darn delicious! And they’re topped with Maple Glazed Pecans. Because, reasons.
Easy Caramel Apples from Clean Eats In The Zoo
Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Spiced Almond Butter Cups from Primally Inspired
For those of you strange enough to already be tired of Pumpkin Spice, there’s a normal version of these, too!
3 Ingredient Maple Pecan Candies from Homemade Mommy
These sound super simple AND super delicious. Win win! Just keep your candy thermometer handy 🙂
Chocolate Cupcakes from Queen of Quinoa
Yes, despite the blog name, these are paleo! The cupcake is coconut flour based and the frosting is made from sweet potato! Genius!
Chocolate Pumpkin Pecan Butter Cups from Civilized Caveman
These are actually filled with a pumpkin butter filling, not just pumpkin spice! To make it even easier, use this organic BPA free pumpkin puree!
Pumpkin Pucks from Paleo Parents
It’s a muffin! It’s pumpkin pie! It’s both!
Mandarin Chocolate Truffles from Against All Grain
These are beautiful and also get extra points because they are made with raw cacao butter. No junky soy or dairy filled chocolate here!
Coconut Almond Candy Bars from Girl Meets Nourishment
Use the best quality coconut butter you can find – so long, Almond Joys!
Homemade Chocolate from Real Food Forager
Again, raw cacao butter is the star of the show!
Homemade Gummy Worms from Rethink Simple
Grass fed gelatin makes these “worms” fun AND nutritious! I recommend this brand because it is is grass fed, as well as soy, corn, hormone and GMO free!
