Easter is one of those holidays that can end up being a caloric bomb – chocolate bunnies, Cadbury eggs, not to mention traditional Easter dinners! It’s also a very meaningful holiday for many families and a chance to connect around the dinner table. No one wants to skip the sweets on Easter, so I’ve created a few Easter dessert recipes that will satisfy your sweet tooth and not leave you with Easter Basket regret on Monday morning.
|Carrot Cupcakes with Creamy Frosting
Nothing says Easter more than carrot cake, but in my updated version, healthy ingredients like yogurt, fresh apple, spices and coconut flour make these cupcakes a guilt-free indulgence.
|Banana Chocolate Cake
What’s Easter without chocolate? It is definitely one of my favorite indulgences and this cake is absolutely delicious! Being free from refined sugars, dairy, gluten, and grains – it is the perfect special treat for the kids (and you!) to enjoy this Easter.
|Raspberry Chocolate Cake
I love the combination of raspberries and chocolate… it is so yummy! This cake is free of gluten and dairy, and it is paleo friendly. It’s super easy to make, and I am sure it will easily become your favorite chocolate cake.
|Poached Pears with Cream Sauce
This is a great dessert to make for Easter. With their sweet flavor and firm texture, pears taste incredible when poached. These juicy gems are pretty healthy for you too. Pears are one of the highest fiber fruits, offering 6 grams per one. Being so high in fiber, eating pears may help decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
|Vegan Chocolate Chip Blondies
These flourless treats taste absolutely amazing. Free of dairy, eggs and gluten, they will for sure satisfy any sweet tooth. Chickpeas are a great source of dietary fiber and protein, which will keep you feeling full for a long period of time. Fiber helps control blood sugar levels, speeds up the metabolism, improves digestion and promotes bowel movements.
