Now, if you missed my Easter chocolate post, you can find it here. It includes my delicious raw chocolate recipe, and my salted caramel cups! 

 

First things first – breakfast! For our family, Easter calls for pancakes. A very cute idea for your Easter morning breakfast is to style your pancakes into bunny rabbits. If you are after a pancake recipe, I have a gluten and dairy free option here with my Buckwheat pancakes, or a regular pikelet recipe that you can easily use for breakfast too here.

Now, I know Easter just wouldn’t be Easter without Hot Cross Buns. Unfortunately though, the buns you buy from the supermarket are nutritionally devoid of any goodness, full of white flours, sugars and nasty vegetable oils. Here are some recipes that are nutritious and delicious!

The Healthy Chef has two different recipes, one using regular flour, and the other gluten and dairy free (and paleo) using Almond Meal. They are really good!! I have been making both over the past few weeks. The Healthy Chef also has blog post with her favourite fish recipes that you can check out here.

Now Easter, or Good Friday at least, calls for some delicious seafood recipes. Firstly, my Sesame Salmon Salad.

My friend Liz, from Journey to Nourishment, has a delicious one pot meal that the whole family will enjoy!. Her Italian pot of fish and brown rice  also is a budget friendly way to include fish regularly in your diet.

Rodica’s Primal Kitchen has some gorgeous, healthy seafood recipes for you including these beautiful looking Garlic Prawns and White wine mussels.

A delicious and easy salad to throw together comes from Beata Sinclair from www.smart-nutrition.com.au. Quinoa is a grain high in protein and other nutrients, as well as fibre. A great addition to anyone’s diet!

Brenda Janschek has a beautiful, fresh zucchini salad that we will be making for sure as I have a spiraliser now! Exciting. You can still make it though even without a spiraliser, I’ve been using a julienne peeler until now.  You can check out her recipe here delicious with some fresh seafood.

Now for the main event……Dessert time!

Easter calls for chocolate, and lots of it. A great way to get your kids to eat some fruit at the same time is by coating fruit in chocolate! You can read about how I do it here.

The lovely Mamacino has hit the jackpot with this one, I’m not even going to say how many times we have whipped these up quickly after dinner! Seriously they take two minutes to throw together and 12 minutes in the oven. These Dangerously Easy Chocolate Puddings  are also gluten and dairy free. I then top mine with a blob of cashew cream and some strawberries – delicious.

Another simple, nutritious and delicious dessert comes to you from Monica Caligiuri from Real.Raw.Wild – this Chocolate Mousse looks amazing, and is as easy as throwing a few ingredients in a blender or food processor. Love it when things are easy! You should also check out Monica’s E-book Real Raw and Radiant‘ – it is AMAZING!!

And if all of that Chocolate is getting a little too much, how about a gorgeous Vanilla Bean Cheesecake on Brownie crust from Joanna Stevens. Still has a chocolate component, but a delicious creamy vanilla filling. Dairy and gluten free.

And if chocolate just isn’t your thing, or you know you will be sick of it by dessert time, then how about little Raw passionfruit and citrus delights by The Wholesome mum.

    I know someone who might be rather impressed if I attempt to make the Vanilla Bean Cheesecake on Brownie crust. So I’ll give that a go over Easter.

      They are so easy to make too Karen! You can go with the orange and chocolate flavour the Healthy Chef has in the recipe, but I also have made them just with raisons and currants instead and they are delish! Enjoy and thanks for entering – happy Easter 🙂

    Any seafood as well as would love to try a paleo hot cross bun

      They are really easy to make Sharon – aren’t as light and fluffy as your traditional hot cross bun but so much better for you, and have the same flavour! Thanks so much for your entry Sharon – good luck!
