We know that most of us will be celebrating Easter with chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate, but if you’re looking for a healthier alternative to your usual Easter Eggs, then look no further. Here are 4 healthy Easter treats that we’ve spotted around the internet. Make, bake and enjoy, guilt free!
4 Guilt-Free Easter Treats
Oat Pancakes with Warm Raspberry and Stewed Apple Compote
We challenged one of our Lookfantastic ambassadors, the lovely and super fit Clean Eating Alice, to come up with a healthy Easter spring treat for us. With her new recipe book, The Body Bible, coming out 19th May, Alice knows a thing or two about healthy snacks. She rose to the challenge and shared with us her scrumptious three ingredient delicious oaty pancakes with warm raspberry and stewed apple compote! For you Instagram fans be sure to check out Alice’s profile.
You Will Need
Half a banana, mashed
1 whole egg, 1 egg white
2 tbsp porridge oats
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 apple, peeled and diced into chunks
200g fresh or frozen raspberries
25g mixed seeds
1/2 tsp coconut oil
1tsp raw honey (optional)
Place your apples into a saucepan and just cover with water. Bring the water to the boil and add your cinnamon and nutmeg to the water, and leave to simmer until the apples are soft (about 10 minutes).
Meanwhile, mix your oats, banana and eggs until completely combined.
Heat a small amount of coconut oil in a non-stick frying pan and pour about 1/3 of your mixture to cook. When one side is well formed, flip and cook the other side, before repeating for the rest of the mixture.
Drain any excess water from your apples, stir through your raspberries and mixed seeds until they are combined. Top your pancakes with the fruit, finishing with a squeeze of raw honey if desired!
Vegan Caramel Easter Eggs
We have been following Hello Gemma‘s vegan journey for a while, but her vegan Easter Eggs look amazing. While not exactly low calorie, you can’t help but feel less guilty eating an egg that is homemade with dark chocolate. All those antioxidants are brilliant for the skin!
Gemma has three different recipes to choose from on her YouTube channel but the recipe for the vegan caramel egg looks especially delicious. It uses dates to make the dairy-free caramel! For anyone that is vegan or lactose intolerant, this is the ultimate Easter treat.
No Bake Lemon Cheescake
The MyProtein Blog is always our first stop when looking for healthy recipes and it hasn’t disappointed with their recipe for no-bake lemon cheesecake. It looks like the perfect dessert alternative for Easter Sunday lunch.
Bright and zingy, this will look just gorgeous next to your daffodils on the dining table. The zingy cheesecake is packed with extra protein and is only 231 calories per serving so you can enjoy it guilt-free this Easter. Plus, it can be nice to have a little change from chocolate every now and then!
Zesty Easter Scones
This recipe from Deliciously Ella has us desperate to get baking! What could be nicer than a tray of these vegan, fruity scones over Easter weekend?
A healthy twist on a hot cross bun, Ella’s recipe uses chia seeds to replace eggs and orange juice to add moisture. They look incredible and the mix of spices and citrus zest sounds just perfect for Easter. Whet
