Spook-tacular Cookie Dough Pops

Spook-tacular Cookie Dough Pops

Boo! Halloween is here, and so is all the sugar. One could argue that it’s one of the “sweetest” times of the year — you can’t go to the grocery store without seeing shelves lined with Halloween treats. And, while these treats are seasonally cute, the ingredient lists are sure to give you a fright! Traditional Halloween candy is often loaded with artificial flavors, dyes, and of course, sugar.

But it’s not all doom and gloom! Enjoying Halloween with a healthy twist is possible. Swap out artificial, sugar-loaded Halloween candy with better-for-you options like these simple and festive Cookie Dough Pops.

Filled with whole food ingredients, like organic coconut oil, cashews, and almond flour, plus naturally sweetened with organic maple syrup, these better-for-you options are something the whole family can enjoy.

So, skip the sugary scare factor this Halloween and try these freakishly delicious vegan and gluten-free recipes instead.
