Easter has to be one of the best holidays of the year. When else are you given total liberty to eat large quantities of chocolate judgement free?
But for those of you who are or have friends and family that are dairy intolerant or don’t want to spoil the diet, the options for alternative chocolate products may not seem as vast as the rows upon rows of Cadbury eggs and bunnies at the local supermarket. Thankfully, there is a bounty of local businesses that have you covered, meaning no-one will miss out on Easter indulgences.
Here are just a few of our favourites.
Founded on a passion for food, nutrition and keeping fit, Bareballs makes the perfect raw protein balls by creating a pre-blended "instant" mix. Posing as a great DIY gift, all that’s required is the addition of coconut oil, water and a sweetener of choice.
Free from refined sugar and preservatives, these supercharged vegan balls are healthy and delicious, meaning you won’t be left with a stomach ache and instant regret after eating one too many! Flavours include Gingernut, Hazelnut and Coco, Cookie Dough, Citrus and Tumeric and, for a limited time only, Hot Cross Buns.
For a decadent Easter morning breakfast spread, you can’t go past the Paleo Banana Bread from Honest Goods Co. Or the Paleo Coconut Banana Bread. Or the Vegan PB Cacao Bread. Look, there’s just too much goodness to choose from! Topped with their artisan nut butters, these treats are healthy and wholesome without the compromise on taste.
Want to simultaneously do good while eating delicious, healthy for your granola? Prospect Project is for you!
