10 Healthy Easter Recipes

10 Healthy Easter Recipes

Whether you’re hosting an Easter brunch or dinner or looking for a dish to bring, these 10 healthier Easter recipes are sure to be crowd-favorites!

P.S. If you pan on dying eggs, check out my How-To guide for Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs

Breakfast Recipes:

Cheesy Broccoli and Egg Overnight Casserole – The Healthy Toast This is a staple in my house for a reason: assemble the night before, then all you have to do in the morning is pop it in the oven while you finish getting ready. While the casserole is flavorful on its own, feel free to add some chicken sausage for any meat lovers in your family.

Bread Machine Blueberry Breakfast Rolls – Healthy Aperture Blog It doesn’t feel like Easter without sweet rolls (at least in my opinion). While I grew up with sugar and butter-loaded Cinnabons, these Blueberry Breakfast rolls are lower in butter and sugar than traditional rolls, while still looking just as gooey and delicious. These are sure to impress your family!  

Lemon Poppy Seed Greek Yogurt Scones – Krolls Korner  Have the ultimate brunch spread with these bright lemon poppyseed Greek yogurt scones. The Greek yogurt not only helps to cut out some of the fat, but it keeps these scones nice and moist.

Dinner Recipes:

Cheesy Weekday Kale Lasagna – The Healthy Toast My husband comes from an Italian family where Easter (and any holiday really) isn’t complete without a lasagna. While not as indulgent as a traditional Italian lasagna, this healthier version still has all the cheesey goodness that you’d hope for. Make it extra special by making your own sauce! And if you really can’t live without meat, throw in some ground turkey for a lean protein source.

Roasted Carrots with Lemon Yogurt Sauce and Farro – The Almond Eater While ham or turkey is usually the centerpiece of Easter dinner, these gorgeous roasted carrots may replace them at center stage. Besides being a beautiful dish to look at, the flavors of the dish are so wonderfully bright – perfect for a springtime celebration.

Avocado Hemp Deviled Eggs – Kara Lydon  While there are many variations of deviled eggs, this recipe is my favorite as it’s super colorful and a refreshing twist on the traditional. If you don’t have hemp oil feel free to substitute with avocado or olive oil.

Skillet Honey Whole Wheat Yeast Rolls – Lively Table  While it’s easy to focus on the ham, scalloped potatoes, and deviled eggs, dinner rolls are also an essential part of Easter dinner. Skip store bought rolls and make your own! These rolls are slightly sweet thanks to honey and pack a higher fiber bunch thanks to the white whole wheat flour. I recommend serving directly from the cast iron skillet for a rustic touch.

Dessert Recipes:

Light and Lemony Cheesecake Bars – The Healthy Toast  I adore these bars so much! While the strawberry roses are pretty, save some time and simply add sliced strawberries on top. For a blueberry version, press a few blueberries onto the top before cooking. Your guests will never guess that these creamy bars are secretly lower in fat and calories than traditional cheesecake!

No Bake Carrot Cake Cream Cheese Bars – The Lean Green Bean It wouldn’t be an Easter recipe round-up without something carrot cake-ish. While I’m not usually a carrot cake fan, these bars look so doughy and delicious that I would gladly eat one (or all) of these bars. Made with all natural ingredients, this is a treat you can feel good about serving!

Coconut Lime Dark Chocolate Dipped Pineapple Rings – Grateful Grazer  Okay stick with me. I know lime isn’t a traditional Easter flavor, but these chocolate-dipped pineapple rings are just so bright and flavorful that I couldn’t resist including them. Plus, they are super easy to make and are a lighter option for when you want something sweet but are too full for a whole slice of cake or pie.
