Skip the store-bought candy and make these healthy Halloween treats instead! They’re all allergen-friendly and super easy to make with simple ingredients.
I love Halloween! Who’s with me?! The chilly temps, the spooky movies, carving pumpkins and of course the trick-or-treating! But what I don’t love is all the store-bought candy that’s around during this season.
Don’t get me wrong, I grew up eating (and loving) Butterfingers and Reese’s peanut butter cups, and even though my eating habits have changed I still love to enjoy a good treat. Especially if it involves peanut butter and chocolate!
So, all that said I was determined to develop healthier homemade versions of all my favorite Halloween treats so I could still indulge during this season, but feel better about what I’m eating.
All of these easy Halloween treats I’m sharing today are perfect alternatives to make for a Halloween party or whenever you and your family are craving something sweet, but are trying to avoid store-bought candy.

Add avocado, almond milk, cocoa powder, maple syrup and vanilla into a food processor or high power blender. Blend until mixture is smooth and there are no visible pieces of avocado. You may need to use a spatula to scrape down the sides of your machine or the blender’s tamper, just to make sure the mixture is combining. If the pudding seems too thick, you can add additional almond milk, one Tablespoon at a time, to get the pudding consistency you like. Once smooth, taste and add more sweetener, if necessary.
Portion pudding into four cups and place in the refrigerator to chill, about 30 minutes.
In the meantime, crush the granola. You can use your food processor for this or simply place the granola in a plastic bag and crush it using the bottom of a glass. This step is optional, but crushed granola looks more like dirt than granola chunks.
Once pudding is chilled, top with crushed granola and gummy worms. I did three worms per cup and placed some into the pudding and some on top. Serve immediately.
The avocado pudding is best served the day you make it, but will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days. Just store the pudding separately from the granola and worms as they will get soft if they’re stored with the pudding.
