Healthy Easter Treats

Happy Easter everyone!  I hope everyone is having a lovely long weekend so far! I thought I would put all the yummy healthy easter treats together in one spot for everyone to check out!

Easter can really be a time of big indulgence, I want to show that you can still produce gorgeous treats for children (and big kids) with the use of fun moulds and a few simple ingredients!!

All my treats are refined sugar free, as well as being dairy and gluten-free so you can afford to have another piece without the guilt!

Gracie goes nuts for the gut gummies, she absolutely adored the chicken hatching out of egg mould – huge win!!

Find the recipes below:

I hope you enjoy these are much as we do!  Would love you to comment below and share your healthy Easter treats to!

Healthy Treats

Strawberry Chocolate Easter Eggs

Strawberry Chocolate Easter Eggs, dairy, gluten, nut and refined sugar free

Strawbery Chocolate Easter Eggs

 

Easter can be a time of real indulgence for a lot of people so I wanted to share a healthy raw treat that will hit the spot and won’t send you into a sugar high!

These delicious treats are dairy, gluten, nut and refined sugar free so great for people with food intolerances and/or food allergies.  They can easily be made into any mould you like!

Chia seeds are highly nutritious, they are rich in antioxidants and provide fibre, iron and calcium!

Cacao is much better for you than Cocoa as its been made by cold-pressing the beans, whereas cocoa powder has been roasted at a high temperature which basically lowers it nutritional value.  Cacao powder is actually a really good source of magnesium as well as high in antioxidants!

So don’t feel guilty if you have a couple of these babies!

You can purchase the mould to make these eggs here.

Once you try these ‘chocolates’, you will never reach for the refined sugar, preservative laden type again!

These are such a fun thing to make with children and I have a collection of cute moulds that Gracie loves.

So simple to make and you can pick and choose if you want to add different things to the mixture.

You can purchase the moulds to make these eggs here and here.
