This year especially – Easter is a great time to get stuck in the kitchen making delicious treats for the family. From home made hot-cross buns, easter eggs, Sunday lunch ideas and chocolate snacks – try something new, get the kids involved or visit an old favourite from our list of goodness below.
You can substitute ANY type of chocolate that suits your pantry or dietary needs. From carob, milk, dark, white chocolate varieties – experiment and enjoy this Easter weekend.
With only 10 minutes in the oven, the sweet smell of these oat cookies baking in your home will cause your family to flood into the kitchen. Packed full of pantry staples such as oats, vanilla, butter & sugar – you can substitute the dried figs for apricots or sultanas if you don’t have any figs plus if carob is not your thing … try a little dark chocolate. A great option to bake ahead to store in the pantry OR have warm out of the oven with a little ice cream for further indulgence!
No time to pop down the shops OR self isolating at home? Here’s a super quick Easter egg recipe to try in your own kitchen. Just 10 minutes to make, with 4 simple ingredients! For those that are yet to experience the joy of Vego chocolate … this dreamy vegan chocolate bar tastes just like smooth chocolatey spread, with chunks of roasted hazelnuts inside. Bliss …
Crunchy toasted coconut baskets filled with a little sweetness thanks to dried fruit & melted chocolate. Something a little different for an Easter treat, and again – you can substitute the fruit & chocolate options for whatever you have on hand on the pantry. These also make a great little gift to pop on your neighbors door step .. or for the Easter Bunny!
I know what you are probably thinking, a salad is not enough to fill your family. However, when it comes to this salad, absolutely not true! It is extremely balanced with eggs and salmon for protein, little potatoes for carbs, heaps of fresh vegetables for fibre and great sources of good fats in the olives and avocado. We LOVE the Good Fish company – as every product has been impeccably sourced from the world’s safest fishing havens, leaving no ecological or social damage behind. Alaskan Salmon is 100% wild caught in the peak of the Alaskan season, snapped frozen immediately and preserved in Certified Organic extra virgin olive oil. Every process is done with love by hand, all under fair trade conditions too … so much goodness on one plate!
This is one we know the kids will love! Tasty and crunchy, they’re a perfect gluten and dairy-free alternative served with a fresh salad and a squeeze of fresh lemon. You could also pair these with some home made sweet potato fries as well.
The easiest most tasty treat that the entire family will enjoy! This fridge/freezer set dessert is the perfect way to get the little ones involved in the kitchen – get them to measure, pour & stir ingredients. A weekend activity for the whole family!
