Are you looking for some low sugar treats for Easter? If so then I have compiled a list of 12 deleicousl low sugar sweet treats that are both gluten free and kinder on your blood sugar levels.
Here on WHK, there are plenty of tempting and delicious sweet treats to choose from, which have all been carefully created with blood sugar balance in mind. And Easter is certainly a time of the year when the sweet treats are out in full force.
So I thought I would compile a list of my favourite sweet treats, plus some new recipes, especially for Easter time that you can enjoy with friends and family. Whether you are at home or visiting, all of these tasty recipes can be a great option to take along with you or enjoy at home.
But please bear in mind when decorating these sweet treats with shop-bought easter eggs and sprinkles they will need to be factored into your carb counting as the original recipes will not have this information.
Edible Easter Decorations
I love Easter time and all the gorgeous pastel colours which indicate the start of spring.
There are lots of different edible easter decorations which you can add to any of these recipes. Lots of UK supermarkets now stock baking decorations from carrots to little chicks. Otherwise, I also find Amazon or eBay a good place to shop for my edible decorations. But my personal favourite is the Cadbury mini egg.
These colourful eggs look fantastic placed on cakes and chocolate treats. But if you are looking for something a little brighter, then smarties also do a version of mini eggs and there are plenty of foil wrapped eggs available which also look fab.
Alternatively, if you want something less colourful and looks a little more decadent then you could opt for Galaxy enchanted eggs which have a beautiful burnt bronze finish.
Low Sugar Treats for Easter
The tasty recipes compiled below will hopefully inspire and tempt you into making something delicious for your Easter Celebrations. All of the recipes have been created with diabetes management in mind. They include carb counting information and where necessary use a sugar replacement and other ingredient alternatives to help make the recipes more blood sugar friendly.
But if you would like to read more about using sugar substitutes, baking with almond flour and eating more plants to help with blood glucose management, then make sure to check out my blog.
