Healthy Halloween Snack Recipe: Flatout Tarantuladas
If you've shied away from standard bread because of all the carby calories, these foldable figure-eight flatbreads are here to save the day! We're especially crazy about the 100% Whole Wheat with Flax Foldits, which have just 90 calories, a whopping 7g fiber, and 43% fewer net carbs than sliced bread. The other varieties rock too: Traditional White (perfect for PB&J) and Rosemary & Olive Oil (schmancy grilled cheese, anyone?). Use them to make sandwiches, pizzas, tacos... You name it! With great texture and perfect taste, Foldits truly are the best thing since sliced bread... In fact, they're BETTER.
1/2 of flatbread: 116 calories, 4.5g total fat (1.5g sat fat), 424mg sodium, 13.5g carbs, 5g fiber, <0.5g sugars, 8g protein

Ready for a frighteningly delicious spin on tostadas? You got it!
Cook: 15 minutes
1/4 cup refried beans
3 tbsp. shredded reduced-fat Mexican-blend cheese
3 large pitted black olives
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
Bake flatbread until hot and lightly browned, 8 - 10 minutes.
Spread with beans, and sprinkle with cheese. Bake until hot, about 2 minutes.
Slice one olive in half lengthwise. Place one piece in the center of each flatbread half, cut side down.
Cut each of the remaining 2 olives widthwise into 4 slices, for a total of 8 slices.
Use 2 of the end slices to form a “head” above each of the olive halves on the flatbread. Cut remaining slices into half-moon shapes, and arrange to form 12 "legs."
Cut into 2 pieces.
