In October, we love scary things. Watching horror movies, hearing ghost stories visiting haunted houses. We go all out for spooky season! The one thing we don’t like is scary blood sugar numbers! When it comes to blood sugar, we want things to stay steady, predictable and normal.
Halloween is synonymous with trick-or-treating, parties and sugar. We want to help you enjoy the holiday fun without fear! You should only be scared by the ghosts and ghoulies this month!
While plenty of sugar-free candy is available in the store, homemade is delicious. We’ve shared Halloween recipes in the past. Today, we want to share low-carb vegan recipes. Just because you don’t eat animal products doesn’t mean there aren’t sweet ways to celebrate that won’t upset your blood sugar. These recipes don’t have any animal products in them. And they are scary good!
These truffles are adorable. They aren’t going to scare anyone, but they will hit the spot if you are looking for a nutty treat! Made with pecans, coconut and a little honey, no specialty ingredients are required. If you want to cut the carbs down even more, you can use a non-caloric syrup, but there is only a tiny amount of honey per truffle. A serving has 147 calories, eight grams of carbs and three grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
This no-bake torte is perfect for any adult party. It’s elegant with a pretty spiderweb on top. It’s so scrumptious you may find yourself leaving the spiderweb off so you can serve it any other time of the year! You can omit the coffee if you want to make this for kids or don’t like the taste, but it does bring a depth of flavor to the torte that is “to die” for. The instructions are missing a step: you must chill this torte overnight before serving. A serving has 98 calories, 8.8 grams of carbs and four grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
These brownies, as the title says, have just four ingredients. Pumpkin, peanut butter, cacao and a sugar alternative bake together into a very fudgy, dense brownie. And the recipe comes with a two-ingredient glaze to top them with! With just six ingredients, you’ll have a perfect fall dessert. These are the only brownies you’ll eat with 23 percent of your daily vitamin A and 11 percent of your iron! Baking with veggies is fun and healthy! A serving has 156 calories, 11 grams of carbs and 3.7 grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
This pudding is thick and creamy without dairy. It’s also the most responsible way to eat pumpkin pie for breakfast! You can have this as an excellent dessert or snack, but we think it’s the best way to start the day. This recipe chills in the fridge for four hours or overnight. We suggest making it in the evening for the following morning. It’s a five-minute recipe, but it involves a lot of waiting. So make it and wake up to a delicious seasonal treat. A serving has 276 calories, 12 grams of carbs and six grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
We hope none of these recipes scare you. October is a time for the good kind of scary. And these recipes are terrifyingly tasty!
