20 Healthy Treats for Easter! Want to put something other than packaged chocolate in your Easter Basket? Looking for a nice treat for a family dinner? Here's all you need! - sixtimemommy.com

The Easter bunny will be here before you know it, and while that may usually mean pounds of sugar in your Easter basket, this year it doesn’t have to!

These healthy treats can be made at home for a fraction of the price of a bag of candy (why is candy so expensive?) and you get to control exactly what ingredients you put in that Easter basket this year. While these treats are healthy, you’d never know it–they’re decadent, chocolaty, and oh so yummy. Even the pickiest eaters will be fooled!

    I usually host and this is the first year in about 10 that I am not – so I have to pick one of these to bring to my parents house :)

    • Reply Terry March 30, 2015 at 9:12 am

      I am not hosting this year either. We are going to my Daughters house. Not sure what she wants me to bring.

      I’m usually hosting Easter, but not this year. My husband has to work this weekend. So kiddo is going to go with his mom and to that side of the family. His dad and step mom will celebrate on their own and I think I am going to do something with my mom. She works retail and never seems to have day off.

  • Reply Terry March 30, 2015 at 9:07 am

    I am all for eating healthy. I try not to bake even the healthy treats though. If they are around my house, I will eat them untill they are gone. I say I try not to bake them…. but I can tell you, I have my eyes on that Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge.

  • Reply Carol Cassara March 30, 2015 at 9:09 am

    Healthy Easter treats are such a great idea. I love these.

    • Reply Terry March 30, 2015 at 9:16 am

      Eating healthy is so much better than giving kids all those sugary treats. I healed so many of my problems by just giving up sugar.

      • Reply Veronica March 31, 2015 at 12:29 am

        I think these are so fabulous! You can almost taste the yumminess

    • Reply Mama to 5 BLessings March 30, 2015 at 1:09 pm

      I agree! I am trying to do more homemade because there is less bad stuff for you in it!

  • Reply Alli March 30, 2015 at 9:14 am

    I completely bypassed the candy for my grands Easter baskets this year. They will get more than they need OR their mother will allow them to eat at all the parties and egg hunts they’ll be attending this year. I love that you shared all these healthy treats! I’ve got my eye on several of them!

  • Reply Ashley March 30, 2015 at 9:19 am

    That fruity chocolate bark looks so good! I definitely want to give that one a try. Thanks for such an awesome roundup, I am always looking for new things to bring to our family Easter dinners!

  • Reply Mama to 5 BLessings March 30, 2015 at 9:23 am

    What nice healthy options especially for treats/snacks for kids. I like homemade, so much better for you than processed.

  • Reply Terri Ramsey Beavers March 30, 2015 at 9:29 am

    Thank you so much for the healthy treats ideas and recipes. They look really delicious. I don’t really have a favorite Easter Treat but I do love the chocolate hollow Easter bunnies. I guess they might be my favorite lol.

    I’ve been meaning to try those Paleo Brownies. The Honey Popcorn Balls look awesome too!

  • Reply Tracy @ Ascending Butterfly March 30, 2015 at 11:57 am

    Easter and my birthday tend to always line up, so I’m usually eating birthday cake! LOL :-)

    That Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge sounds pretty good to me!

  • Reply Nicole (Nicole's Lifestyle Lounge) March 30, 2015 at 12:32 pm

    They look so tasty. If they taste as good as they look…

    I love that these are healthy treat options for Easter. I am loving the look of the chocolate slab with the berries, so delicious!

  • Reply aimee fauci March 30, 2015 at 2:46 pm

    Beautiful photos and so much chocolate! I think I will try something healthy… try….

  • Reply Amy @ Amy's Healthy Baking March 30, 2015 at 2:57 pm

    Thanks for including my truffles! I always looked forward to Starburst-flavored jelly beans in my Easter basket as a kid, but now I just want to spend time with my family. Funny how things change as we grow older! :)

  • Reply Harriet March 30, 2015 at 2:58 pm

    Great list. I am glad that it is all healthy too

  • Reply breanna March 30, 2015 at 3:26 pm

    I am usually the host, but this year I would love to be a guest. Let’s see how this works out. With a family of 6 it is hard to find someone that wants to host us, lol. Maybe I can convince my mother to come over and cook! :) But I will definitely be browsing these recipes for snacking and deserts what is not to love when it involved chocolate and a title of healthy!

  • Reply Britney March 30, 2015 at 4:11 pm

    These look amazing! I can totally use these for this weekend!

  • Reply Roselynn March 30, 2015 at 4:22 pm

    Thank you for the massive list of Easter treats to make, I had no idea where to even start looking, The raw peanut butter cookie is my favorite and I plan on making a few patches for our family members on Easter.

  • Reply Lady Lilith March 30, 2015 at 4:42 pm

    Yum. I love these ideas. I like eating healthy and enjoying a treat at the same time.

  • Reply Grace Hodgin March 30, 2015 at 4:57 pm

    I like to try and stay healthy as possible and do enjoy making my own treats rather than going to the store and buying theirs. You’ve give me a great selection here to try and make for myself so I’ll be having a great time in the kitchen.

  • Reply Liz Mays March 30, 2015 at 5:07 pm

    These make it so much easier to eat healthy on Easter. I think those chocolate chip pistachio meringue cookies sound so good. I’d love to have them.

  • Reply Bonnie @ wemake7 March 30, 2015 at 6:21 pm

    These recipes sound really good! We are staying away from all the candy this year and these sound great to make it healthier.

  • Reply Ashleigh Walls March 30, 2015 at 6:25 pm

    Oh how delicious this list is! I love that bark, we’ve been trying to cook and bake healthier here, little steps.

  • Reply Echo March 30, 2015 at 6:49 pm

    I love healthier treat alternatives for these overly sweet holidays! Thank you so much for sharing them!

  • Reply Rachee March 30, 2015 at 7:19 pm

    What is it about holidays that make me want to eat all the things? This year we are keeping it low key and saving it all for half price Easter candy on Monday!

  • Reply Hope March 30, 2015 at 7:40 pm

    fantastic round-up. Thanks for sharing.

  • Reply Amber NElson March 30, 2015 at 8:09 pm

  • Reply Carra D March 30, 2015 at 8:13 pm

    Homemade treats are so much better and tastier. I like knowing what is going into them. The fruity chocolate bark really stood out. Thanks for sharing these yummy treats.

  • Reply Heather March 30, 2015 at 8:22 pm

    These look great. I like when desserts are on the healthy side.

  • Reply Krysta March 30, 2015 at 8:26 pm

    Popcorn balls! Does it get any better? I love sweets, though my waist line prefers not too! So these would be a WIN WIN! These look delicious and your photos are great!

  • Reply R U S S March 30, 2015 at 9:15 pm

    This is an awesome list of Easter treats that you’ve put together. I’m glad that there are healthier options that aren’t sugar galore. I tend to veer away from having anything with sugar overload. I’m set on making the Raw Banana Brownie Bars and the 5-Ingredient Paleo Brownies.

  • Reply M from K&M: The Stay-at-Home Life March 30, 2015 at 9:51 pm

    Fudge is on my list of things I’ve never made but want to. This one looks great.

    It’s really a good idea to have these healthy snacks around for Easter. And a lot of them look so tasty!

  • Reply HilLesha March 31, 2015 at 3:24 am

    This is quite of a round-up! I’d love to give the Dark Chocolate Blueberry Truffles a try.

  • Reply Elizabeth O. March 31, 2015 at 5:14 am

    How about those red velvet cupcakes? What will Easter be without some of these sweets?

    All of these sounds delicious right now so thank ,you for sharing. I will try to make one or two of these for Easter!

  • Reply lisa @bitesforbabies March 31, 2015 at 7:19 am

    Wow! These all sound and look delicious!! I always make healthy treats…but I think this Easter I might make something not-so healthy (which pretty much means using traditional ingredients rather than always substituting with healthy ones, lol!).

  • Reply Tesha Fritz March 31, 2015 at 7:41 am

    These look yummy and tasty! Sometimes healthy snacks are a sacrifice because they are disgusting. I think you have a great balance here to get taste and health in one treat – or in this case 20 treats. LOL

  • Reply Betsy @ BPhotoArt.com March 31, 2015 at 8:41 am

    What a great round up! I can’t decide which of these looks tastiest. Maybe I’ll have to try the raw banana brownie bars first. Yum! Thanks for sharing.

  • Reply Paulina March 31, 2015 at 9:15 am

    I am loving all these healthy recipes. I am doing a fitness challenge right now and it comes with a strict diet and I was so bummed I wouldn’t be able to have any Easter treats but there are many of this list I can eat since it is on the list of foods I’m allowed.

  • Reply Stephanie March 31, 2015 at 9:51 am

    All these look SO delicious…. thanks for sharing. Just in time for us to enjoy this Easter!

    Just stop in on An Open Track Day, it is the opportunity for you
    to drive your car or bike on the racetrack. In this
    case you could be not only heading for a Big Fail on the

    Bananas are amazingly versatile as a healthy but still sweet snack. We also smash them up, mix in a little chocolate then freeze it for an ice cream replacement.
