I’m a mother, nutritional therapist and author who has been sharing recipes to help you get the glow back for the last 8 years...
Here are my favourite homemade Easter recipes. I’ve got delicious homemade hot cross buns, vegan carrot cake donuts, slow-roast lamb with salsa verde and two choc-tastic homemade alternatives to traditional Easter eggs! The full recipes are below for you, and here’s a little taster…
Making these little eggs adds that extra special touch, and mine are free from dairy and refined sugar. I use desiccated coconut for a luxurious taste, then fill the eggs with crunchy pistachios for extra goodness.
I love making this as a gift for friends and family, and this year I’ll get Shay involved to top the chocolate with colourful freeze-dried raspberries.
Nothing says Easter like some delicious Chocolate Chip Hot Cross Buns. This bake is definitely a labour of love with some waiting time for them to prove but trust me it’s worth it for those fresh out of the oven warm buns. We’ve already devoured some of them warm out of the oven but the others I’ve halved and frozen ready to toast for a delicious Easter breakfast.
Spongey, moist and bursting of cinnamon and nutmeg flavours, these are a great gift for a loved one or perfect for sitting down with a cup of tea.
Slow roast lamb is one of my all-time favourite dishes because it’s so tender and delicious. My recipe works with salsa verde, peas and butter lettuce, or you could add your own healthy twist with steamed spring greens and roast sweet potato.
Happy, healthy Easter!
