But who wants to sacrifice all those good eats? Certainly not me! Here are some fun, festive recipes that will give you all the tastiness and spooky vibes for a fraction of the calories. Hallelujah!

These delicious little treats are all under 300 calories! So save the candy for all the kiddo’s this year and enjoy something that won’t ruin your goals.
