Easter is a time of renewal, rebirth and revival. Spring is around the corner, the buds are on the trees, and the daffodils are nodding their lovely yellow heads. No matter what your religious leanings, the Easter holiday is the perfect opportunity to get see family and friends and enjoy some really good food. And let’s face it – that includes some delicious chocolate. But forget all of that commercialized, sugary packaged stuff on the shelves of supermarkets – this season you can make your own!

Chocolate based yumminess is just one part of the 21 Healthy Easter Recipes I’ve dug up for you. There are also vegan friendly hot cross buns, carrot cakes, and of course, the all important Easter lunch. Let’s get hopping!

1. Vegan Creme Egg

OHMIGOD is how I feel about finding this creme egg recipe. Those delightful little ovals were the highlight of my every Easter. Back when these eggs would only be available around Easter time, I would spend my Easter feasting upon them like there would never be a return. But then they changed the recipe and they started to loose their appeal for me (way too sweet now!), and also, they’re not healthy at all! So I was thrilled to find this vegan creme egg recipe. So now I can spend my Easter chowing down on these. And, y’know, all year round!

2. Chocolate Egg Baskets

These are not only gorgeous, but are super easy to make, too. I would highly recommend using Loving Earth or Raw Halo vegan chocolate, or if you like, the darkest darned chocolate you can find, for the anti-oxidant boost. Fill them in with number 4, Raw Mini Eggs, below, and watch faces light up as you serve these!

3. Peanut Butter Eggs

If you’re someone that likes a little bit of a peanut butter twist to their chocolate, these gems are definitely for you. They’re a vegan take on the popular Reese’s peanut butter cups, but in little eggs instead, perfect for that peanut butter fiend during this holiday where we all like to stuff our faces and feel so guilt.

4. Raw Mini Eggs

Remember those little speckled eggs you’d enjoy at Easter? Admittedly, tastier than a real egg, but not healthy if you take into account all of that sugar and milk, gross! So, why not make your own? Especially when it’s this easy. They’re raw, too, which means no baking. So even the most undomesticated of us can enjoy making a plate of these.

Because why should Santa get cookies and not the Easter bunny?! These are the perfect cookies to make with your little ones this Easter. And of course they had to be carrot cake, as we all know bunnies like carrots! Simple to make and finished off with a drizzling of coconut and maple syrup icing, delicious!

7. Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies

If I could audition for the role of the Easter bunny, than I would. Just so I could feast on cookies and delight kids with chocolates and call it my job. But I get to do the next best thing; find delicious recipes and bring it to you all. How stunning so these look?

8. Chocolate Cinnamon Tea Bread

This bread looks great and I think this is a fantastic recipe to re-produce over Easter. There’s something about cinnamon in baking that I just adore. This bread will not only taste festive but will go down a treat with a pot of tea and even a little coating of peanut butter.

9. Hot Cross Bun Macarons

Macarons just ooze sophistication! And now they’re hot cross bun flavoured. These make the perfect little treat to craft up this Easter. Whether you choose to make a box for family and friends that will visit, or to just serve up as a dessert after dinner, these are going to surprise everyone with how professional they look.

Because it’s a weird but true fact that not everyone on this planet loves the taste of a hot cross bun, I’ve included this banana bread muffin. They’re the perfect Easter breakfast that you and your family or friends can enjoy over Easter. I suggest enjoying them with a pot of tea and some peanut butter on the side for topping these muffins.
