I can’t believe it’s almost Halloween already! Are you all ready with your costumes and treats? I’m definitely not. I used to get excited about Halloween when I lived in New York City because it was such a huge deal there and I would always be invited to parties with my friends. Now that I’m living in suburbia, it’s much more toned down and most of the events are catered for little ones. I doubt I’ll dress up at all this year. Gosh, I’m so lame and boring.
However, I did make these cute (and maybe a little creepy?) Halloween deviled eggs that both kids AND adults will love. You know you’ll get plenty of sweet, processed treats everywhere you go, so why not sneak in this fun little snack at your party that’s full of healthy, delicious fats?
These Jack O’Lantern Halloween deviled eggs are great if you are doing a RESTART sugar detox program, Whole30, or if you are just looking for a healthier, sugar-free option. What I love most about deviled eggs is that not only are they tasty, they are filling and makes for a perfect snack. Instead of reaching for the processed candy, the healthy fat these Halloween deviled eggs contains can really help kill your sweets cravings.
And even if you aren’t a fan of deviled eggs, these are just so fun to make even with your kids, and people will love them at parties. You can be as creative as you want with the faces, and they don’t have to be perfect! I included some not-so-perfect ones in these photos to show that as long as they look like faces, it really doesn’t matter.
Hope you have a safe and happy Halloween!
- 6 eggs
- 3 tbsp paleo mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp tomato paste
- 1 tbsp marinara sauce
- 1 tsp dijon mustard
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Pitted black olives, for decoration
- Bring water to a boil in a saucepan.
- Take out eggs straight from the fridge, then lower the eggs into the water so they don't break, and let it come to a boil again. Once it does, lower the heat, and let the eggs simmer for 11 minutes.
- Prepare a large bowl with an ice bath.
- Once the eggs are done cooking, place them in the ice bath for at least 15 minutes.
- Peel the eggs under cold running water.
- Cut the eggs in half lengthwise.
- Take out the yolks and place in a bowl.
- Add mayo, tomato paste, marinara sauce, dijon mustard, salt and pepper, and mash with a fork until fully combined and creamy.
- Fill the egg whites with the mixture evenly.
- Cut pitted olives into small triangles for the eyes, and wider triangles for the mouth, making teeth marks if you want more details. Use kitchen shears for better precision. Be creative, and it doesn't have to be perfect! Place on top of the filling to make faces.
- Refrigerate for up to 4 days.
