Easter Buns and Chocolate Eggs are the treats of Easter time.  

If you thought giving up gluten, grains and refined sugar put a stop to those treats, then you can think again.  Here is a little selection of Easter Buns and Chocolate Eggs from paleo and primally inspired bakers and bloggers.  Take a dive in, select one or two and get making and baking.  

Have a happy, restful, peaceful and mindful Easter weekend.

Easter Buns

Paleo with Cream

Hot Cross Muffins,  I just had to feature my own creation first up, didn’t I?  I promise you that this recipe is simple to put together, smells divine in the oven and is tasty with the warm spices of Easter.

Enjoy them warm with a lovely dollop of butter or your favourite spread.

What the Fat

One of my favourite Low Carb Healthy Fat blogs. I recommend their book, What the Fat? – Fat’s IN, Sugar’s OUT as a great resource for a low carb, healthy fat diet and recipes you will want to use every day.  With around 4.5g of Carbs in each, you can enjoy these lovely Easter Buns guilt free. The recipe makes 12 – 16 buns.

Chocolate Eggs

Take care now and don’t eat these all at once – be nice and share them around!

Ditch the Carbs

Another awesome low carb recipe resource with a simple philosophy – Don’t eat CRAP – Caffeine, Refined foods, Additives and artificial colours, Processed and packaged foods. These lovely eggs, are not only grain, gluten and egg free they are dairy free as well.

Chocolate Ganache Truffles

Well I have cheated with the final Easter Egg treat as I made these as Christmas treats!  No matter, they are roundish and deliciously chocolatey treats with a hidden surprize, so who can complain! .
