Healthier Halloween Recipe – Chocolate Peanut Butter Pumpkins

Let’s be honest, as well as being a great excuse to dress up, Halloween is for eating delicious sweet treats – and we would never suggest you do anything other on October 31st than fill up on fun foods. We do think, however, that tweaking your favourite treats to add in extra nutrition and help prevent the tricky sugar crashes that characterise the holiday is never a bad thing.  Our healthier Halloween take on chocolate is much higher in protein and lower in sugar than traditional sweets so will keep your blood sugar levels stable and leave you satiated rather than susceptible to cravings after eating them.
