Halloween is often a time when you will be tempted to veer off your healthy eating plan and dip into all the sweet treats that are floating around, especially when you have kids who love the sugar hit. But you don’t have to, there are many healthy delicious recipes that you can tweak to make some fun Halloween treats.
Healthy Mummy community member and mum Sophie Barrett has put a Halloween spin on some of her favourite Healthy Mummy recipes.

Hidden veg sausage roll “mummies”
- I used 2 sheets of puff pastry
- Make mince mix as per normal.
- Cut strips from the puff pastry.
- Make palm size “logs” of mincemeat, and start wrapping the puff pastry strips around the mince to create a mummy. Slightly stretch the pastry as you go, because you’re layering the pastry, you want it to be a bit thinner.
- Place on a tray, and make little “eyes” using some carrot
- Cook as per normal recipe
Makes 24 Mummies
Peanut bubble crunch “ghosts” and zombies
Adjustments to the original recipe
- Don’t use Cocoa – instead, I used 1tbsp Spirulina

- Once set, cut into 8 slices each.
TO MAKE GHOSTS:
- Melt some white chocolate
- Dip each piece into the white chocolate.
- Add on two chocolate chip eyes.
- Draw on a mouth using an icing decorator pen.
TO MAKE ZOMBIES:

- Stick on eyes using white chop chips
- Using a black icing pen draw on eyeballs, and a red icing pen for “cuts”
Makes 8 of each – 16 TOTAL
Weetbix slice “spiders”
- Make recipe as per instructions.
- Instead of using a loaf tin, I used a silicone muffin pan. (Makes 12)
- DO NOT top with chocolate
- Once set in the fridge, take out of the mould

- Stick on white chop chips for eyes.
OPTIONAL: Decorate with icing red pen to make redback spiders.
