This has to be one of the easiest Halloween treats in all of Halloween treat-making history. I’m really not a crafty person when it comes to making holiday things, but these were almost fool proof.
Note the word almost! Eric and I did a “test run” one night last week and we could not stop laughing at our first couple tries (note the dried apricot tongue and vampire blood! hah), but our apple bite skills seemed to improve slightly with time.
First you slice ‘em up. Feel free to rub a bit of lemon juice on them if they will be sitting out. This is why I like spreading nut butter on the middle to cover up the apple flesh – it hides a bit of browning.
You can also core the apple and then slice in into quarters, but I found this method above made for better looking bites. Plus, you get to eat the leftover middle piece, which you will certainly want to take advantage of.
Now, spread on some jam or nut butter for the tongue and then push some slivered almonds in for the teeth. For a nut-free option, sunflower or pumpkin seeds can work in a pinch. Likewise, you could also use sunflower seed butter instead of peanut butter.
Apple Bites make for a festive, healthy, and seasonal addition to any Halloween table. Given how much fun we had, I suspect kids would also have a blast making these.
Have a great Monday!
Great vegan low cost healthy alternative to the high sugar treats that most kids get! Will definitely be making these for our little munchkins!
These are so fun! Great idea :)
Ha! I saw the picture on the main page and had to come check this out. Very clever. :)
These are precious! And waaaaaaaaaay more healthy than the other’s ones I’ve seen floating around. Ha! I love the first attempts too. Hilarious!
These are amazing! You are seriously incredible at this stuff! I wish I had even a tiny bit of your creativity
These are so adorable, and I can’t get over how easy they are to make! What a great healthy option for a Halloween party!
Even fun for adults! I’m looking forward to making these festive treats. Thanks for sharing the idea.
I was just wondering how you keep them from turning brown? Or do they with the PB in them? Yeah I am new to all this stuff.
You can try spreading on some lemon juice to help with the browning. They will still turn a bit though, it’s hard to prevent that entirely.
Oh. my. gosh. Those are SOOOOOOOO CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D
Angela, you are awesome!!! I have been struggling with food for YEARS, and am trying to find a balance between being too strict foodwise, and binging on every kind of fattening food there is. This is site (and your story) are so inspirational. I am SO glad I found it! :) PS – Sketchie is too cute! I have a couple of kitties of my own :)
Hi Leigh, Thanks so much for your sweet comment!
I did these this year for my son’s school halloween party. They turned out great! Thank you so much for posting a healthy alternative to the junk kids usually eat at those parties!
This recipe is too cute! I made a how-to video of it for our company blog. Thanks for the inspiration, Angela! :)
These came out soooo well! I brought them to a pumpkin carving party tonight and people loved them! I loved how easy and and healthy they were! I thought it would be cute to use sunflower seeds as teeth and slivered almonds as the two long vampire teeth!
I think these apples look fab (if not a bit creepy) and I would love to feature it on my post about easy Halloween creations on my blog (cakediem.com). Would you mind if I used one of your photos in the post? It will be credited in any way you see fit and clearly linked back to this page.
Sure, be my guest! Thanks :)

Made these for my sons preschool halloween party and I loved them! THey were a huge hit. used sunflower butter and sunflower seeds. Your cutting tutorial is key =) thanks!
Hi! I was so happy to stubble across this post! Do you remember which kind of jam you used?
Picture 3 and 4 are identical. It’s confusing. :C
Made these this weekend and we used broken up banana chips for the teeth and sunflower butter for a nut-free party. The banana chips are awesome and give you fangs and funny shaped teeth. Great idea!
Omg thank you! I love this and I’m certainly making them!
