Easter is just around the corner – and you know what that means.
Yes, candy. Chocolate.
And lots of it. I know – Easter means MUCH more than candy.
And we do all we can in our family to celebrate the real reason for Easter.
But having a little fun with food and making some healthy Easter recipes is usually part of our celebration.
When I was little, I loved those Cadbury Mini Eggs the most.
But my mom went all out to put together a huge (wayyyy too huge) Easter basket for me.
It had a large hollow bunny, and a pretty decent sized hollowed chocolate egg with pretty white chocolate designs on the outside, and it was filled with more chocolate eggs.
And that’s not all.
It was a little much :).
With my boys now, things have been pretty toned down.
When we were still eating sugar, I would make homemade rice krispie nests with peeps inside.
No more peeps on krispie treats for me, though.
It’s the low carb, gluten-free healthy desserts route for me now.
This year I’ve put together a roundup of fabulous sugar-free healthy Easter Recipes from some of my favorite bloggers, so that you can have some healthy recipes in your Easter basket this year.
I hope this helps you and your family have a little healthy food fun along with your Easter Celebration this year.
To make these recipes low-carb, just use a low-carb sweetener like xylitol, stevia, or erythritol. And if the recipe calls for chocolate chips, use a low-carb version or make these Homemade Chocolate Chips.
If the recipe calls for peanut butter, sub in another nut butter or seed butter. And if it calls for cashews, those are fairly high in carbs so you might wish to sub in a different nut.
