This round-up is all about naturally sweet treats. These morsels use honey or dried fruit to sweeten them and are a perfect way to have sweets at Halloween that are delicious and nutritious. Best of all, they don't have to be relegated to Halloween — they are great any time of the year!
These tarts are delicious and a fun take on the typical granola breakfast. They can be eaten as breakfast snack or dessert!
These snack bars are made with nuts, dried fuit, and a little bit of honey. They're naturally sweet snacks that will fill you up and keep you satisfied. Mix and match the nuts and fruits to customize them to your taste!
Banana Soft Serve Ice Cream
Deliciously sweet banana ice cream will hit the spot. The only sweetener is the bananas themselves!
This treat is great for when you need a little something more than fruit to meet that desire for something sweet — it has honey and chocolate chips too!
Millet Crispy Treat
These crispy treats are one of my favorite marshmallow treat alternatives. I have a kid who hates marshmallows but loves crunchy things. These are held together with the delicious combo of peanut butter and honey. I'm sure your family will gobble them up!
When I was a kid, my grandma would make these and they were my absolute favorite sweet treat. She would always have leftover bananas and make banana fruit leathers. This recipe is for peach fruit leathers, but feel free to try any fruit that's on sale or that you have from your own garden.
Healthy "Candy" Necklaces
Here's a great alternative to your usual candy necklaces — and they're a lot of fun to make with your kids. Have them choose their favorite fruit to go with the circle cereal. They can make as many of them as they want and you'll feel great about their nutritious snacking habits!
Apple Sandwich Stackers
Mmm, these apple sandwiches are so messy and delicious. This is my kind of sweet indulgence!
I've saved the best and sweetest for last — sugarplums! These are made with fruit and nuts, plus they have a sugar coating on the outside for an extra bit of sweet crunch. You'll probably want to make a huge batch of these — they'll go quickly!
