Halloween is coming, and that means delicious goodies and treats that will take you back to your childhood days. But those little fun-size bars can set you back in the health department—and fast. (Hello, scarfing down the whole bag—oops.) So what to do when you want the sweets without the guilt? Good thing we have the internet. These Halloween treats are actually (relatively) healthy and are great for curbing your second trip to CVS.

Sorry, Reese's. You might have met your match with these pumpkin-chocolate cups by Alex of Delish Knowledge. Pumpkin is packed with fiber, and these are naturally sweetened with maple syrup. Plus, they're vegan and gluten-free.

Coconut and chocolate, oh my. These bars, from Katie of Chocolate Covered Katie, taste, again, so much like the original candy bar—and (again!) are vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, refined sugar–free, raw, and Paleo-friendly. Plus, did we mention they're no-bake?

Like a Crunch bar, but with peanut butter. This recipe from Katie of Chocolate Covered Katie only uses three ingredients: chocolate, peanut butter, and crunch. Any questions? Sub in almond butter or cashew butter if you that's preferred. She says you can also add chia seeds, hemp seeds, crushed walnut, or almond or peppermint extract, too.
