Made with apples, peanut butter, strawberries, sunflower seeds, and edible eyes, these Monster Apple Bites are a fun snack packed with nutrition! Perfect for Halloween or whenever you are looking for a fun snack idea for the kids.

Monster apple bite snacks made from pieces of apples, peanut butter, strawberries, sunflower seeds, and edible eyes.

Let’s face it. Most Halloween treats are loaded with fat, calories, and enough sugar to keep your kids climbing the walls until the Elf of a Shelf keeps them in check.

Wouldn’t it be nice to give your kids something fun that wasn’t loaded with sugar? I mean, don’t get me wrong. Halloween is a time for fun and candy, but it doesn’t have to be candy 24/7 for 31 days straight.

If you feel the same, why not try this delicious, scary, non-candy Halloween treat idea?

These Monster Apple Bites are an excellent source of nutrition. You’ve got apples, peanut butter (or any other nut butter you want to use), strawberries, sunflower seeds, and edible eyes.

Okay, so the edible eyes lack nutritional value, but still it’s hard to go wrong with a snack like this. It’s filled with the types of foods that you’d love for your children to eat on a regular basis, but they probably don’t.

However, once you turn those ingredients into scary little monsters, your little goblins will gobble them up.

Kids snack made with sliced green apples, and a peanut butter mouth, sunflower seed teeth, strawberry tongues and candy eyes.

Make Green Monster Apple Bites as an after school snack or for your Halloween party. Whenever you serve them, I can guarantee they will be an instant hit. After all, what kid could resist such a silly and fun snack?

A printable version of the recipe is included at the bottom of the post for your convenience.

Monster Apple Bites Recipe

Green apple and strawberries on cutting board being sliced.

Cut the apple into quarters.

Lay the apple quarters down, and cut a 1 inch wedge in the middle of the peel side of each quarter. Do not cut all the way through because you want each quarter to stay in one piece. It will look like a mouth.

Cut the strawberries in slices lengthwise so that you have 4 pieces.

Apples on sheet pan being turned into monsters.

Spread peanut butter on the bottom of each mouth, inside the cutout.

Then, place a strawberry inside the cutout to resemble a tongue sticking out.

Finally, poke 6 or 7 sunflowers into the top edge of the cut out to resemble teeth.

Serve your green apple monster snacks right away.

How to prevent Halloween apple treats from browning

To prevent the apple slices from browning, soak them in a solution of 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt per cup of water for 5 minutes. After soaking, rinse the slices thoroughly and let them dry. Don’t worry- this method won’t leave a salty taste on your apples.

  1. Oh my gosh, I love these! Such a great idea. Yes, the kids are on total sugar load with all the Halloween candy. These are excellent alternative snacks.

  2. Healthy… and oh so cute! Question, though… What’s the best way to attach the eyeballs?

    1. We used the peanut butter as the “glue” for the eyes. Looks like I forgot to mention that in the post! I will add the info šŸ™‚

    1. You can try soaking the apple slices in a solution of 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt per cup of water for 5 minutes. After soaking, rinse the slices thoroughly and let them dry before going on to assemble the apple monsters.
