15 Healthy (For The Most Part) Easter Treats

15 healthy easter treats

Is it bad that I still ask my mom for an Easter Basket even though I’m 27?? I don’t think I’ll stop this request anytime soon either. I still love being a child at heart. 

Easter is one of my favorite holidays (maybe I say this about every holiday) and I have such fond, amazing memories of this special day throughout my childhood. Eating pistachio pudding cake, flying kites outside, hunting for eggs and opening my Easter basket, the list goes on! I’m so very excited to continue these traditions for my own family some day too 🙂

The absolutely number one thing I love about Easter though, is all of the pastel colored sweets and treats I indulge in all day and night. Peeps, candied eggs, peanut butter eggs, the list goes on. To celebrate this special holiday I’m rounding up 15 healthier (and some just plain indulgent) Easter treats to try this weekend! Easter wouldn’t be Easter without indulging in at least 5 of these.
