These rice crispy treats are satisfyingly crispy. Melted chocolate and coconut oil bind with the puffed rice cereal for a truly toothsome treat. You’ll notice there are no marshmallows in this recipe, which means no added sugar. Pick up a nice chocolate bar for the best tasting (and super crispy) treats.

If you’re looking for Halloween recipes for parties that are tasty but still made with better-for-you ingredients, you’ve hit the jackpot. Butternut squash (or even pumpkin) make the batter for melt-in-your-mouth blondies while sunflower seed butter packs some protein into an easy tartlets recipe. We made rice crispy treats that are actually crispy and even made a better-for-you caramel you can drizzle on just about anything. Below are four healthy desserts you can easily make yourself.

Date Caramel Sauce

Drizzle this date caramel on fruit or frozen desserts, or simply stir it into your morning oatmeal. Dates are high in fiber and antioxidants and this natural caramel couldn’t be easier to make. Plus it just happens to be vegan!

An easy blondies recipe with an unexpected healthy twist: Sweet winter squash is a perfect match for a fall dessert bar, but if you’re all about the pumpkin, make this one with pumpkin puree and you’ve got a pumpkin blondies recipe.
