Halloween is coming – the sugariest night of the year! But for those that are trying to stay healthy by keeping things low-carb, it can feel like a time of being left out or a time when cravings hit hard.
So how can you help indulge yourself while still maintaining that low-carb diet? Simple! Prep your house with low-carb treats that will have you feeling like you aren’t missing a thing. If you need some help with ideas, we’ve got more than a few for you!
Treats to Have at a Party
If you are a truffle, pumpkin, or pumpkin truffle fan then these chocolate covered pumpkin truffles by Low Carb Yum are for you! Made with pumpkin, heavy whipping cream, and sweetened with stevia and Swerve, these no-bake treats are a delight. If you have a dairy allergy – consider swapping out the heavy whipping cream for chilled coconut cream.
If you are missing out on Reese’s peanut butter cups, try these dairy-free peanut butter fat bombs by Wholesome Yum out instead! With dark chocolate, coconut oil, vanilla and peanut butter, you won’t even be able to taste a difference. Freezing them in muffin cups will give that classic peanut butter cup look. Pro tip: eat them frozen as the coconut oil may soften a lot at room temp.
Jonesing for that coconut vibe? These no-bake “Almond Joy’s” by Whole New Mom will have you asking for more! A mix of almond butter, erythritol, coconut flakes and coconut oil provides the base for this recipe. Consider taking out the almonds for a more “Mounds” sort of feel.
Finally – if you are missing out on the cookies this year – these pumpkin cookie balls by Keto Adapted may top the cake. A mix of coconut and almond flour make the base, while coconut oil or butter holds it all together. The pumpkin spice really gives it that fall feel we all love.
