Turning down sugary treats can be hell-ish at the best of times. Topple temptation this Halloween with our 5 diabetic-friendly snack ideas… Healthy Halloween stuffed peppers: Cut the tops off orange, red and yellow peppers and carve jack-o’-lantern style frightening faces into the sides. Toast pine nuts in a dry pan for a few minutes and set aside. Cook a chopped red onion with garlic, pepper offcuts and aubergine until the vegetables are soft. Add mixed grains and tomato paste to the pan to complete the perfect pepper filling. Pour it in, add a floret of broccoli and bake for 35 mins, uncovered for the final 10. Ghost bananas and tangerine pumpkins: A simple but effective recipe for adding some fright to your fruit. Use a piping bag and melted dark chocolate to squeeze scary eyes and mouths onto half-cut bananas. Position the ‘ghosts’ upright on a plate, for a dose of petrifying potassium. Complete the look with a peeled tangerine posing as a pumpkin. Simply add a short stub of celery through the centre of the fruit to achieve an authentic-looking stalk. Scary soup with tombstone toast: Chop a large onion into a pan and cook gently until brown. Take butternut squash, low salt vegetable stock, red lentils, canned tomatoes and tomato puree and until soft. Add a pinch of pepper and whizz through a food processor to complete your scary soup. Pour your scary soup into a bread tin and add a spiral of yoghurt on top. Use a skewer or chopstick to draw through the spiral and complete the perfect spiderweb. To create your tombstone cut a piece of toasted bread into your fave grave-shape and place upright in the tin. Spiderweb cupcakes: Sugar-free cake mixes make this creepy-crawly-cupcake frighteningly diabetic friendly. Simply preheat your oven to 180 degrees, and fill muffin cups with Halloween-themed paper liners. Make your mixture according to the instructions on the packet and then add one teaspoon of orange extract and stir into the prepared batter. Pour in to the paper liners and bake according to the instructions. For decoration, mix sugar-free frosting with red and yellow food colouring, try a ratio of one drop red to five drops yellow to achieve a pumpkin orange. Frost the cooled cupcakes and used black food gel to recreate spiderwebs. Sugar-free gummy worms: Wriggle your way into the kids’ good books with this worm-themed treat. Coat a baking dish with cooking spray and in a separate bowl combine flavoured and unflavoured sugar-free gelatin with an unsweetened soft drink mix. Pour into the baking dish and leave to chill until completely set. Cut into worm sized strips and serve overflowing a bowl to bring the treat to life.
