10 Healthier St. Patrick’s Day Recipes

10 Healthier St. Patrick’s Day Recipes

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! To help with your celebrations, I rounded up a few healthier recipes to get you into the festive spirit. Enjoy! 

Getting your day started: 


Healthier Shamrock Protein Shake – The Healthy Toast: using fresh mint and spinach, this is truly  a nourishing, yet creamy breakfast or post-workout smoothie. 

Corned Beef Hash Breakfast Sandwich – Running to the Kitchen: why wait until dinner to get your corned beef and hash on? This breakfast sandwich is for the serious St. Patrick’s Day celebrator. 

Gluten Free Spinach Oatmeal Pancakes – Joy Food Sunshine: not a smoothie person? You can still get your fill of greens in with these healthy and festive pancakes.


Must-Make Mains:

Guinness Beef Stew – The Healthy Toast: this stew was one of the first recipes on the blog and continues to be one of the most popular. Crack open a Guinness and get to cooking – just make sure to leave enough beer to add to the stew 😉 

Crockpot Corned Beef and Cabbage – The Roasted Root: spend more time celebrating than cooking with this easy crockpot corned beef and cabbage. 

Vegetarian Stuffed Cabbage Rolls – One Hungry Bunny: meat-eaters aren’t the only one’s who get to enjoy Irish cuisine today. Thanks to the addition of lentils, these vegetarian stuffed cabbage rolls will keep you full throughout your celebrations tonight. 

Whole Wheat Irish Soda Bread – Kara Lydon: you can’t have Irish stew without soda bread! Kara’s whole wheat recipe ups the fiber without stripping away any of the traditional flavor. 


Sweet treats:


Thin Mint Date Bites – The Healthy Toast: get your chocolate and mint fix with these no-added sugar date bites. 

Guinness Brownies – Well Plated: just incase you’re still wondering what to do with all that Guinness, I highly recommend whipping up a batch of these Guinness Brownies. Chocolate + beer never tasted so good 🙂 

Flourless Baileys Chocolate Mug Cake – Kirbie’s Cravings: want something sweet, but don’t want to make a whole batch of brownies? This flourless Baileys chocolate mug cake is the ideal dessert-for-one with a festive flair from the Baileys Irish Cream.
