When you first ditch junk food—refined and manufactured foods designed to be hyperpalatable, overiding your satiety signals to stimulate overeating, and full of unhealthy ingredients like high fructose corn syrup, trans fats, food dyes, flavor enhancers and preservatives—it’s common to feel like you’re missing out during those food-centered holidays that feature seasonal and favorite childhood treats. While your palate can adapt to dietary changes quite quickly (anywhere between 2 and 6 weeks), finding festive recipes that also meet the nutritious and healthy food criteria can take a little trial and error.
That’s why I’m sharing my collection of delicious spooky recipes to celebrate an AIP and allergy-free Halloween!
Every single one of these Halloween treat recipes are gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, refined sugar free, nut-free, peanut-free, egg-free and free of the top 10 allergens! They’re perfect for a classroom with multiple allergies, or if you’re in search for Paleo or AIP Halloween treats and edible crafts to make with the kids!
Here’s my collection of Halloween-themed recipes:
- Halloween AIP Marshmallow Ghosts
- Halloween AIP Monster Finger Cookies
- Halloween AIP Monster Mouths
- Monster Mouths – A fun edible craft!
- Clementine Pumpkins – BELOW!
And I share how I navigate Halloween with young kids in this post. Enjoy!
