It’s little secret that when the Easter Bunny comes to town, our sugar consumption pretty much goes into overdrive. Who can say no to those eggs?!
Luckily, it doesn’t have to be that way. With a bit of effort in the kitchen and an easy sugar swap care of Lakanto, you can make your own tasty Easter treats this year – ones that aren’t loaded with the stuff that sends your blood sugar levels into overdrive.
Here are some of our new favourite chocolate recipes to get you started.
These could even be breakfast on Easter... definitely better than a whole chocolate bunny. Goodness of oats, nuts and seeds - all with a coating of sugar free chocolate deliciousness, these are sure to be a hit in the whole family with no guilt whatsoever!
Healthy chocolate crackles, yes please!
A great fun snack for kids over the Easter period, particularly for any family or friend get togethers. Vegan, gluten free, diabetic friendly, these crackles tick all the boxes!
Cookies are always a winner. Make them look as cool as these with no added sugar and you'll be asked for the recipe.
Serve with a hot homemade cocoa and a fruit platter - Easter afternoon tea sorted.
Next up we have some of our timeless Easter favourites:
Because it wouldn’t be Easter without chocolate! Leave the store-bought eggs out of it and make your own choc with this easy, fun and super indulgent (but totally sugar free) version. You can jazz it up with nuts, seeds, fruit and/or edible flowers as it sets, for a treat that’s easy on the eye and the blood sugar levels.
Hate to break it to you, but store-bought Hot Cross Buns do not a healthy Easter snack make – most of them are teeming with the sweet stuff. These ones are sweetened with spices and the natural sugars from the dried fruit, making them an added sugar free version that doesn’t sacrifice on that sweet sweet Hot Cross Bun-ness.
If you're not already in a chocolate coma, these are the ultimate Easter indulgences! These double choc cupcakes come smothered in chocolate ganache frosting – minus the added sugar. It really is fun for the whole family!
An Easter Treat we’re sure the Bunny would get behind! These little carrot cakey morsels of goodness come lightly spiced with cinnamon and packed with pecan, topped with a tart cream cheese icing. They’re sure to be a crowd pleaser at any Easter do.
