Easy & Healthy Easter Recipes You’ll Love

Hello Easter, we meet again. Every year it seems we scramble to find new recipes that’ll impress our family and friends, no matter if it’s a brunch or dinner crowd.

But as this year is quite unique (to put it mildly), I say it’s time to ditch the predictable ham idea and get creative with Spring’s fresh ingredients. So here’s my official list of super green sides, healthy egg dishes, impressive mains, and fruitful desserts. No need to stress about the perfect Easter recipes, I’ve got you covered.

Healthy Easter Brunch Ideas

There’s no holiday like Easter to get egg-cited about brunch. Aside from classic egg dishes like frittatas, round out the table with fruity baked goods and veggie filled dishes.

Healthy Easter Sides And Salads

Whether you’re serving up brunch or dinner, add a few sides or salads into the mix. Choose from creamy, savory dishes that are melt-in-the-mouth good. Or sweet and crispy salads that will brighten things up a bit.

Healthy Easter Dinner Ideas

Since the weather can still be a bit chilly in early Spring, a hearty yet healthy protein can be the star of your dinner. Roasting a whole chicken with spices and herbs is always a classic. But if you want to keep things delicate, opt for light and fresh seafood. Then throw together a medley of vegetables as you’re cooking for an easy way to a get a healthy dinner on the table.

Healthy Easter Desserts

And here comes the best part: dessert. While fruity desserts are always a hit during Easter, let’s not forget about chocolate. The desserts below have just the right amount of sweetness.

I wish you all a wonderful holiday, enjoy these Easter recipes and let’s look forward to next year when hugging is back in order!

  1. Hi Lisa, which of your Recipes do you suggest I use to make healthy Hot Cross Buns, I was thinking of one of your Bread recipes and adding some spices to make them taste like Traditional Hot Cross Buns then making them into rolls or using a muffin tin and putting or cutting a cross on the top. It has been a Tradition in our Family to have them at Easter but the Commercial ones are not suitable for me now. Thank you :-)

  2. Thank you for sharing these recipes. This year Easter bunch will be hugging the ones closest to us. Stay safe everyone.
