We all love a huge gooey candy-covered caramel apple, but sugar in the fall is just merely the pathway to diet disasters over the holidays and inevitable regret in January. Candy corn and pecan pie soon turn into sugarplums and Christmas cookies at every turn and eventually your summer diet is long forgotten and January guilt sets in yet again.

Do things differently this year by choosing healthy fall treats you will love to share with family and friends. Staying healthy as much as possible allows you to indulge a little on Thanksgiving pie and Christmas morning cinnamon rolls. Stay on track with these healthy alternatives that still allow you to enjoy all the flavors of the season without the extra calories.

  • Autumn Glow Milkshake: 

    Although not actually a milkshake, it sure does taste like one. Almond milk, almond butter, frozen sweet potato, frozen cauliflower, a pinch of salt some honey and protein powder (optional). It’s milkshake magic.

  • Overnight Oats:

    This is a big trend for breakfast on the go that is clean eating and healthy. Apple cinnamon overnight oats is perfect for fall, but you can also use peaches, strawberries, blueberries, honey, peanut butter, banana and more for endless flavor combinations.

  • Pumpkin Seeds:

    Don’t toss out all your pumpkin guts. Save the seeds and roast them in the oven with a little salt for a nice crunchy snack throughout the week.

  • Fall Trail Mix:

    This is a great alternative to sugary/salty snacks that are high in calories. Make you own homemade trail mix with dried fruits and nuts for a healthy snack for road trips or after school activities.

  • Pumpkin Dip:

    It’s easy, healthy, and packed full of fall flavor. Simply combine pumpkin, low-fat Greek yogurt, a little peanut flour, stevia, and pumpkin pie spice for a delicious dip to serve with fresh apple slices.

  • Cinnamon Almonds:

    Make your own batch of cinnamon roasted almonds and enjoy a healthy snack and a deliciously smelling home.

  • Zucchini Bread:

    Zucchini is abundant in the fall, so this is a great way to get a serving of vegetables in for breakfast, lunch, or a snack in the middle of the day.

  • Dehydrated Apples:

    Don’t worry, you don’t need a fancy machine. Just try it out in your own and enjoy homemade dried apple chips that are cheaper and healthier than the dried fruit in the store.

  • Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies:

    One of the healthiest cookie varieties. Swap out the milk chocolate for dark and you can enjoy the sweet cookie without the guilt.

  • Homemade Granola:

    Store bought granola may appear healthy, but can actually be packed with extra sugar. Make your own at home that serves as both a filling breakfast and a delicious snack.
