Liven Up Your Easter Egg Hunt With These Sugar-Free Treats

With the dawn of the spring season comes a holiday meant for gathering with your loved ones—Easter. Easter Sunday is right around the corner, bringing chocolate bunnies, candy hidden in colorful plastic eggs, and rushes of children in backyards hunting for these eggs along with it. If you are planning an Easter egg hunt to entertain your little ones this weekend, keep reading for some sugar-free, homemade Easter treat recipes satisfy your children’s, and your own, sweet tooths this Easter weekend.  


Why You Should Serve Sugar-Free Treats 

It’s common to say sugar is bad for you, but what is so wrong with sugar? Sugar, specifically added sugar, can have many negative effects on your health. Sugar is often associated with an increased risk of heart disease later in life if too much sugar is consumed. Sugar has also been linked to depression and weight gain. Cutting back on sugar, especially from a young age, can also help reduce acne and regulate blood sugar 

However, this doesn’t mean you can’t feed your children any sweet treats this Easter. Instead, try substituting the sugar in your favorite treat recipes for Sweetleaf’s 1:1 sugar replacement sweeteners, or try the following treat recipes that use natural sweeteners while maintaining the same delicious taste!
