40 Healthy Easter Desserts & Treats

Healthy Easter Recipes- These Healthy Desserts are Gluten Free, Sugar Free and mainly low carb!

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.

Low-Carb Substitutions:

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.

  1. Just love this round up Adrienne! I have had many of these recipes so can attest to their deliciousness! Thanks for including me!

  2. What a beautiful roundup of healthy treats for Easter! Thanks so much for including me. Happy Easter!

  3. Wow, this is quite a roundup you put together, Adrienne! I saw Maria's cadbury eggs about a week ago and was eyeing them...one of my old favs too. 🙂 Thanks for including my Andes mints! I hope you enjoy your weekend.

  4. I too am getting more pop-ups and find it particularly ironic that all those healthy treats come with McDonald's ads attached.

    1. Lorrie - I removed the popup - what are you seeing? There's a new one but it's different and you still should be able to close it out. Could you tell me please? Are you able to close it out? The ads are a tough thing. As a blogger, it costs a bunch to run a blog and I need to make it up somehow. I have tried to work with companies with "only healthy ads" but there really is only 1 I have heard of and they aren't an option from what I heard recently. I draw the line at scantily clad women and try to catch them all and block them. Thanks!

      1. I am trying to send a screen shot but I'll have to send it in an email...it won't let me attach it to this reply. I am able to close them out (they show up on each picture in the post. A bit annoying but as I said, more than a little ironic 🙂

        1. Got it - it is odd. I will see what I can do. It's all a balance - this blogging. Hard to keep on top of everything too :).

  5. Sorry to report this, I could simply not read your last two posts at all on my iPad, so many pop ups and in particular the one for a free cookbook that could not be clicked away. Had to switch to my desktop. I have no problems with other blogs. Now that I have read this one on my desktop, lots of good ideas.

  6. I'm with you on the Cadbury Mini Eggs. They were the highlight of my Easter Basket as a child. I'm still tempted to eat them now, even though I know they're trash.

    1. I'm tempted too, Julie! It's hard every time I see a bag. One reason it's good not to go to grocery stores too often :).
