Happy Halloween! Are you ready for the cutest spider deviled eggs? I love Halloween because it’s such a fun family holiday! And while I do love to indulge in all of the sugary goodness that comes along with it (I usually hand out conventional candy, shhh don’t tell), I also love a little break from sweets too. So I’ve created some adorable and delicious Halloween recipes that won’t give you a sugar hangover! One of my all-time favourites? My Spider Deviled Eggs!
These cute little appetizers are perfect for guests to snack on during your next Halloween party, they also make great fuel for tiny trick-or-treaters! They are really easy and fun to make. My kids love piecing together the little spider bodies (then they remove the olives before they eat them…), it really gets us into the Halloween spirit and gives us an opportunity for some fun family time before they become obsessed with their candy hauls.
This recipe features only a few star ingredients that are sure to satisfy, and is ready to eat in under 30 minutes! It’s gluten-free and vegetarian which I love so much since Halloween can be stressful for those with dietary restrictions. Get into the spooky spirit and grab the full recipe for my Spider Deviled Eggs below!
Health Benefits of Eggs
Eggs are a nutritional powerhouse! They contain healthy proteins, omega 3s, and vitamins. Here’s the breakdown of this awesome health food:
- Eggs are considered a high-quality protein because they contain a complete range of amino acids, which are essential building blocks in our bodies.
- Eggs also contain all energy-producing B vitamins including a significant amount of choline. Choline helps cell membranes function properly, plays a role in nerve communications and reduces chronic inflammation.
- I always suggest eating both egg whites and yolks because the yolks are high in Omega 3. Omega 3 is important for improving vision, relieving joint pain, and protecting against heart disease.
When shopping for eggs, organic eggs are best but it is best to buy pasture-raised eggs from your local farmer whenever possible!
Health Benefits of Olives
Olives are sometimes an afterthought in the health world because of their relatively high sodium content. But olives are actually filled with healthy fats, fibre, vitamins, and antioxidants!
- Olives are rich in mono-monounsaturated fat in the form of oleic acid (aka Omega 9). This type of fat is known to help in preventing heart disease and reducing cholesterol, and olives have a whopping 10g in just one cup!
- Olives also contain tons of fibre which helps digestion and reduces the risk of bowel diseases.
- You can also find lots of vitamins and minerals in olives such as calcium, iron, choline, beta carotene, vitamin E, and lutein! All of these help to help the body function healthily.
- Lastly, olives contain an antioxidant called hydroxytyrosol which helps to reduce inflammation and protect the body from oxidative damage and free radicals.

Healthy Halloween Snack – Spider Deviled Eggs Recipe

Prep time: 15 minutes | Cook time: 10 minutes | Serving size: 12 spider deviled eggs
- 6 large eggs
- ¼ cup plain organic Greek yogurt
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- Salt and pepper
- Paprika, for garnishing
- 18 black olives, pits removed
- Place eggs in a pot, add enough water to cover the eggs, and cover with a lid. Bring water to a boil over high heat, turn off the heat, and let sit for 10 minutes. Place eggs in a bowl with cold water to cool them down and to stop the cooking.
- When the eggs are cool, remove shell, and slice in half lengthwise. Remove the yolks and put them in a bowl and arrange the whites on a plate cut side up.
- Mix together the yolks, yogurt, mustard, salt and pepper until creamy and smooth. Spoon or pipe yolk mixture into egg whites and top with a sprinkle of paprika.
