4 Bootastic Halloween Party Food Ideas

Spooky, creepy and fun!!  October is here and Halloween is in the air! The leaves are starting to change and the trees are dropping their leaves. This weekend we bought 2 humongous pumpkins and we are starting to plan our costumes! I’m so excited to finally share some Halloween Party Food ideas with you! As a bonus, these recipes all fit in to your Clean Eating Lifestyle!

The one thing I struggle with while trying to keep my family eating healthy, is finding a way to incorporate fun food ideas so they don’t feel like they are missing out on anything. Clean Eating should be healthy, but if you feel like you are depriving yourself, it is harder to stick to! These ideas get us in the festive mood while cutting back on sugar and processed foods!

Here are our Halloweeen party favorites!

Mummy Dogs

Pancake Cupcakes

Ghost and Pumpkin Pizza bites

Chocolate Almond Flour Cupcakes

Mummy Dogs

Mummy dogs are so fun and SO easy to make! I’ve seen this done on line with store bought crescent dough, I prefer to make my own dough. I use this Easy Bread Dough recipe but you can use your favorite recipe.

Roll the dough into a rectangle that is about 1/8 inch and cut into strips.

Mummy hot dogs

I like to use Nitrate free, no filler, grass fed beef hot dogs. I like these Applegate hot dogs from Trader Joe’s.

Mummy hot dogs

Wrap one breadstick around the hot dog to make it look like a mummy. I slice green olives and gently press them in to the dough to make eyeballs. You could also use chocolate chips.

Mummy hot dogs

Brush the bread dough with a beaten egg white and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until browned. You could also brush the dough with garlic butter (in place of the egg whites) for even more flavor.  Serve! Kids and adults love this one!

Pancake Cupcakes

There is nothing like a pancake on a Saturday morning! To my disappointment, the rest of my family does not agree …but that’s OK, more for me! I love pancakes so much that I will make them at any opportunity.

pancake muffins

I started making Pancake muffins as an easy make ahead breakfast. When I make these pancake muffins, I like to pour about 1/2 tsp of maple syrup right over the top before baking. If you prefer, you can also mix maple syrup into the batter. I like the syrup on the top to make every bite taste different.

For the Halloween muffins, I added some turkey bacon to the top before baking. I love Sweet and Salty!! Yum…

For Halloween, just stick in some decorations and serve! The kids loved this one. And it also freezes well

Ghost and Pumpkin Pizza Bites

This is one of the easiest ones on the list! If you have a recipe for an easy pizza dough, use it here. I was running low on time so I bought an Organic premade pizza crust. There’s no shame in a healthy store bought crust! Use your Halloween cookie cutters to cut out shapes.

Add some pizza sauce, mozzarella and any toppings that you have on hand. I chopped up some spinach and hid it under the cheese! If you don’t have pizza sauce on hand, just simmer tomato sauce with oregano, thyme and basil. Add a dash of honey to reduce the acidity in the tomato and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Then it is ready for use!

These were a hit with the kids and so incredibly fast and easy to make! If you needed a party activity, you could have your guests make their own pizzas too.

Chocolate Almond Flour Cupcakes

In the spirit of clean eating, I made these cupcakes using the Simple Mills. I love this muffin mix because it only has 8 grams of sugar and it is from coconut sugar. It uses almond flour, arrowroot and cocoa powder. It has only 7 ingredients and all are healthy. Best of all, they are delicious!!

    The kids always love “pumpkins” made with peeled oranges with a slice of celery for a stem. And I love it too since it’s so easy! Can’t wait to try some of these ideas – the mummy dogs look so fun!
