Easter has always been one of my top three favorite holidays (for a few different reasons). Now that my family (sadly!) no longer organizes an egg hunt for me and my cousins, the reasons have evolved pretty drastically, but the holiday is still one of the best!

The first reason I love it is because it marks the end of the Lent season, so if I gave up something I love, I can once again indulge.

The second reason? One word:


Every year on Easter, my mom’s side of the family congregates early in the morning and cooks up a wonderful display of waffles, eggs, bacon, Grammy’s famous pancakes, fruits, bagels, mimosas, and more.

As a kid, I was all too happy to shovel forkfuls of limitless brunch food into my mouth after a long morning of egg hunting; now, however, things have changed somewhat. I generally keep to a certain diet, and don’t really enjoy feeling stuffed to the brim. So I’ve had to tailor Easter brunch experience to my needs.

That being said, I’ve compiled a few healthier options to try out this year for your Easter brunch (or any brunch, for that matter, for one time you’re feeling fancy).

  1. Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal

  1. Flourless Blueberry Breakfast Cake

  1. Flourless Sweet Potato Waffles

  1. Egg White Breakfast Bake with Sweet Potato and Spinach

  1. Coconut Flour Crepes

  1. Breakfast Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes

  1. Strawberry Kiwi Dessert Pizza

  1. Skinny Mimosa Mocktail

These delicious options allow you to still indulge on the holiday, without going so over the top. Besides, you have to save room for all that Easter candy!
