The best healthier Easter recipes that are perfect for making and enjoying right at home! You’ll find everything from delicious brunch recipes and sweet treats to incredible, savory sides and main dishes. Enjoy these delicious Easter recipes all spring and summer long.

Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays because you can eat an incredible brunch, colorful salad and big slice of carrot cake all in one day (dream come true). Right now we’re all facing big changes while we at home and keep everyone safe, but whether you celebrate Easter or not I’m excited to bring you some delicious, comforting recipes to cook, bake and enjoy right at home.

Whether you’re cooking for one and virtually celebrating with the family, enjoying a meal with your roommate or significant other, or just feel like getting your bake on this weekend, there’s a recipe for everyone in here. Don’t know where to begin? Start with this easy, veggie-packed quiche and work your way to the best healthy carrot cake you’ll ever eat.

Scroll through and pick a few favorites to send to family and friends! I’ve loved seeing you guys virtually cook & bake together — it’s the perfect way to spend time with each other from afar. Sending lots of love from our little family to yours, wherever you may be. Enjoy, xoxo!
