Scare away the candy with these apple bites!

Ok, so when it comes to Halloween, we have to think about the littles. Children are inundated with sugar at this time of year. Actually, this is the start of the sugar season. They are under sugar attack from here through the end of the year. We have to give them better options and hone our negotiation skills to get them to make better choices.

These apple bites will are a much lower sugar option and they, at least, carry some nutrients with their sugar. The slivered almonds help slow the absorption of the fructose in the apple and if you provide some nut butter or this sugar-free cream cheese caramel for dipping. You could also serve them with cheddar cheese slices. Any protein and fat pairing will help even more.

This snack is also super easy. I’m not sure there is an easier snack to make. It’s a great project for kids, they really get into making them and eating them…and, of course, chasing each other with them! Super simple, and fun. Watch your guests bite the fruit that bites back!

Serve these with cheddar witch’s fingers or spider deviled eggs for a super healthy Halloween spread!
