These One-Eyed Apple Monsters are the perfect opportunity to let your imagination run wild! They have so many tasty components that kids love taking apart and eating.
Are you as excited about a healthy Halloween as I am? I love using snacks like this one to keep my kids in the Halloween spirit while taking a break from the traditional candy that fills our trick-or-treat buckets! These One-Eyed Apple Monsters are so much fun to make, and they're filled with nutritious components that are absolutely delicious. These are the perfect opportunity to let your imagination run wild. They're made with marshmallow and chocolate chip eyeballs, sunflower seed teeth, and a strawberry tongue. Eek! Use your favorite nut or seed butter for the "glue" that holds different pieces on and let your little ones help you create the most outrageous, goofy monsters you can think of.
I hope you'll tag me on Instagram if you make these One-Eyed Apple Monsters...or any of my Halloween treats! I would love to see your creations and your kid's reactions to these treats. You can also leave a review below, which is super helpful for me!

These One-Eyed Apple Monsters are the perfect opportunity to let your imagination run wild with tasty components that kids love taking apart.
- 1 green apple, cored and cut into thirds
- 1.5 tablespoons any nut or seed butter (for the "glue")
- 1 strawberry, hulled and thinly sliced (for the tongue)
- 3 vegan chocolate chips (eyes)
- 3 vegan, gluten-free mini marshmallows (you can also use a banana slice toward the end of a banana so it is small)
- handful raw sunflower seeds (teeth)
- Once the apple has been sliced into thirds carefully cut out the mouth (be sure not to cut all the way through). You can eat the piece you cut out while you prep this one.
- Smear ½ tablespoon of nut or seed butter inside the mouth and add a dot where the eye will go.
- Place one strawberry slice in the center of the mouth sticking to the nut or seed butter. This is your tongue. It works best if you put the larger part of the strawberry slice in the mouth and leave the tip of the strawberry coming out.
- Add sunflower seed teeth to the nut or seed butter.
- Add a mini marshmallow as the eye ball. Place more nut or seed butter on top for the pupil (chocolate chip). Carefully place the chocolate chip on top of the marshmallow.
- Serve immediately. You may need to prop the apples up with something like a date so they appear more upright.
