If you are like me then there is no way you wont be eating chocolate this Easter and that’s fine! By now you will know that I am a firm believer in everything in moderation and I don’t think anyone should have to miss out on the Easter fun (as long as Easter for you doesn’t go for the whole month of April!)
Everyone loves a good recipe, so I thought that I would collate a few yummy chocolate recipes (that are more nutritious than your standard bunny), that you can take to a family get to together this year to mix it up a little bit!
Please keep in mind that whilst these foods may be more nutritious than chocolate e.g. contain nuts, whole meal flour etc. they are still dessert so enjoy them in moderation!
1. Chocolate Chia Pudding by iFoodreal
Kara Landau posted this one on her Travelling Dietitian Facebook page last week. As I have all the ingredients in the cupboard I immediately whipped one up.
It is absolutely delicious the only change I made was using coconut essence instead of vanilla which gave it a yummy flavor.
2. Nut Butter Stuffed Mini Tarts by Chocolate Covered Katie
I bet your mouth is watering now! These contain some banana, dates, nuts and homemade Nutella which is much healthier than your standard Easter egg.
3. Healthier Nutella from Deliciously Ella
This one even has an easy to follow video!
4. Glazed Chilli and Beetroot Brownies from Deliciously Ella
I cant even…yum! These contain beetroot, buckwheat flour and bananas mmmmm and they are so moist.
5. Healthy Hot Chocolate from the Healthy Chef
This recipe uses vanilla bean, honey and cacao to create a smooth creamy hot chocolate.
So I hope this gives you some motivation to get baking before Easter, enjoy yourself on the day and remember everything in moderation.
