Holidays are the perfect time to get together with family, kick back and relax together and, of course, enjoy good food. But they can also be tricky for your fitness plans – when your sweet tooth takes over, and you just fall into a food coma after a delicious meal and a day of snacks. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Because there are lots of great ways to indulge in culinary delights on Easter without overdoing the carbs and fat and still enjoy delicious flavors.
We love to start the day with pancakes. They’re our favorite comfort food, and they spread a good mood throughout the morning. And, of course, we turn up the protein dial. So we’ve already started off on the right protein foot at breakfast, while saving on a lot of carbs at the same time. All that’s missing now is the perfect topping – and what better than a high-protein spread in salted caramel, coconut crisp, or hazelnut flavor? If you just can’t decide, our Protein Cream bundle is the perfect choice. And to make sure you have plans for the rest of Easter Sunday, we’ve picked out some more recipes for holiday treats.
While we’re on the subject of pancakes, we absolutely have to show you this twist on the classic. The tasty mix of caramel, salt, and apple is a great change of pace from traditional pancakes. Besides, they’re also pretty as a picture.
Apple pie meets oatmeal. Sounds exciting, and it is! This recipe remixes the classic dessert with a breakfast favorite – and it’s sure to make the whole family happy.

What would any Sunday brunch be without a big, baked centerpiece? Our vegan chocolate babka recipe is also perfect for an Easter afternoon. It’s a sweet bread that’s extra fluffy, and with an extra portion of protein, and a chocolatey filling for the chocolate lovers in your family.
A carrot cake is always a good idea, whether it’s with family and friends at Easter or alone on the sofa after the holidays. With this recipe we add a little variety to the carrot cake routine, focusing on carrot muffins with an extra dose of nutrients.
Now for something more traditional from the UK! Sweet, spiced Easter buns are served up at the holidays, and they’re worth trying to make at home too. Of course we avoid the vast amounts of added sugar and make use of our Whey Protein instead.
A carrot cake that you don’t even have to bake? Sounds strange, but it really does work – with this classic recipe. This dessert is tasty and nutty, low in sugar, and vegan as well. And that’s something you’ll be happy to help yourself to on Easter.
