Halloween is a fun time for everyone, but it can be difficult for those of us on the keto diet to resist all that candy, unhealthy food and those baked goods sitting around this time of year.
Thankfully, just because you’re low-carb living doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself. And with this list of keto-friendly, Halloween-themed snacks, you can throw an epic costume party that your friends and loved ones won’t soon forget.
1) Eggy Spiders
Eggs are a staple of any keto diet. You can also use them to make a very simple — but very creative! — Halloween appetizer. All you have to do is gather some hardboiled eggs, black olives and a bit of paprika to create these spooky eggy spiders that look ready to jump off the table!
2) Nut Butter Pumpkins
You’ve probably heard of or even tried to create fat bombs before. They are, after all, a typical keto treat. These little numbers are a quick and easy Halloween treat packed with protein and that pumpkin spice flavor you love without all the excess sugar.
3) Low-Carb Mummy Cookies
Almond and coconut flour combine with sweetener to create tasty shortbread cookies that you can decorate to look like mummies using chocolate and vanilla frosting. These little guys taste great and add the perfect sweet, festive flair you’re looking for!
4) Brains, Bloody Brains
You’ll have to plan ahead to create this gruesome-looking dish, but it will be more than worth it when your party guests cut into the gelatin and watch the “blood” (don’t worry, it’s just strawberry jam) pour out. Set this spine-chilling dish in the center of the table and sit back to enjoy the screams.
5) Monster Fingers
The dough in this recipe is easy to meld and shape, meaning you can easily mold them into ghastly monster fingers. Use raspberry or strawberry jam and an almondy for the bloody fingernails, and voila! You have yourself a memorable (and delicious!) Halloween treat.
6) Halloween Antipasto Skewers
Leverage the foods that showcase Halloween’s theme colors by creating these simple, festive antipasto skewers. All you need to do is rotate orange sunburst tomatoes, pearl-size mozzarella balls and black olives on skewer sticks to whip up this striking, party-friendly appetizer.
7) Halloween Keto Pizza
This keto pizza can easily be the star of the table and a filling main course for all your party guests. It’s made with grain-free crust and uses mozzarella slices, olives and basil for the ghosts and spiders decorations!
8) Bleeding Hearts
Savory and scream-worthy, these unique bleeding hearts are pretty darn easy to make and make for excellent table entertainment. Plus, they’re packed with protein and the nutrients required to round out any keto diet-friendly Halloween table.
