Halloween isn’t just fun for the kids; it’s a unique holiday celebrated every year on October 31. This tradition began with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people lit bonfires and wore costumes to fend off ghosts. Halloween has since evolved into a time of festive gatherings, costumes, trick-or-treating, jack-o-lanterns, and, of course, candy!
It can be difficult to stick to the keto lifestyle when the kids are munching on lots of chocolate or when you’re surrounded by delicious-looking party treats you know aren’t keto-approved. But going low-carb doesn’t mean you have to give up everything tasty this Halloween.
There are plenty of great low-carb alternatives to your Halloween favorites. Don’t let Halloween be the reason you guzzled all that sugar and fell off the keto wagon. Instead, try some of the following keto Halloween recipes for snacks, candy, treats and meals you can delight in when this spooky holiday comes around.
The wonderful flavor and versatility of the vibrant pumpkin are celebrated during Halloween and fall. But pumpkin recipes don’t have to be sweet.

Of course, there’s a reason people love pumpkin in desserts: it’s delicious! Bring on the pumpkin sweetness with these keto Halloween pumpkin recipes:
