Ugh, who wants to hear the word Healthy when talking about Easter Treats?
Don’t look away yet though! These treats are truly delicious and decadent yet they have healthy ingredients which may keep you on the straight and narrow if you are trying to cut down on refined sugar and junk food. They are also filling so you won’t eat as many. I’m a self-confessed chocoholic, if I have some of these around over the Easter I think I might stay away from the chocolate eggs! You might also get away with swapping some of the kids’ treats with these lower sugar options.
These no bake treats from the Happy Pear are made with dates, cashew butter and coconut oil. As dates are the sweetener there is not a hint of a sugar or other sweetener in the recipe. They are dairy free, gluten freeand refined sugar free. They are very simple to make and well worth the time they take. Delicious! Like a healthy Twix bar! I have blogged the recipe here.
Cookie Dough Balls
These treats are from The Healthy Tart and are very quick to make for a healthier and lighter chocolate fix. Made with cashew nuts, coconut oil, cocoa nibs and brown rice syrup. They are dairy free, gluten free, egg freeand refined sugar free. You can find the recipe here.
This recipe from Susan Jane White is one of my all-time favourites. If you’re after a treat that isn’t chocolatey this one’s for you! It uses ground almonds in place of flour and it works amazingly well! Lemon Shizzle Cake is dairy free, gluten freeand refined sugar free. Find the recipe here.
These little beauties are made with oats, almonds and walnuts and sweetened with dates. They are slow energy releasing and the nuts give a little protein kick. They are sugar free, dairy free, egg free, soya free and gluten free if you use gluten free oats. The recipe is from the Happy Pear Cookbook, I blogged it here.
