Even though this fall is looking a bit different this year it’s still the perfect season to whip up some amazing, delicious fall appetizers to celebrate the season. Temps are getting cooler and there’s nothing better than comforting appetizers to safely bring the household together or make & enjoy virtually!
What makes these appetizers healthier?
- They pack a good amount of protein to keep you satisfied
- They use real, wholesome ingredients
- They’re lightened up takes on traditionally heavy appetizers
- Some even sneak in a veggie or two!
I put together over 20 incredible, healthy fall appetizers that you’ll be making again and again. You’ll find a mix of savory dips, some sweet & savory breads and muffins, all of the best finger foods (to enjoy with serving ware!) and a few knife & fork appetizers that could double as a savory lunch.
Take a scroll and try out a new, easy fall appetizer this weekend. I’ve labeled them as vegetarian, vegan and gluten free, too. Enjoy, xo!
