Build a Better Easter Basket with These Healthy Treat and Snack Options

I don’t know if you are the same way, but when I think of Easter treats I think of chocolate bunnies, jelly beans, candy eggs of all kinds, and sugar, sugar, sugar! Am I right? There is nothing wrong with those treats if you have them in moderation but how about offering healthier options?

Let’s shake up the Easter basket with these treats!

Whoa Dough

Yummy plant-based, gluten-free cookie dough bars made with real ingredients that’ll satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth–but without the guilt! Packed with 4g of protein, 5g of fat, and 9g of sugar starting at only 140 calories, Whoa Dough is dairy-free, gluten-free, non-GMO, soy-free, egg-free, vegan, kosher, and plant-based with no artificial ingredients.

Flavors include Chocolate Chip, Sugar, Sugar Sprinkle, Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Brownie Batter, and a Variety pack. There’s a flavor for everyone! We loved these bars, they are super flavorful and convenient to stash in your bookbag or purse for a snack on the go, not to mention they look so cute in an Easter basket!

Available on WhoaDough.com, Amazon, Walmart.com, and retailers around the country. 


Enjoy smooth organic 70% organic dark chocolate without the onslaught of sugar or the bitterness that sugar seeks to hide. Macalat is certified organic, dairy-free, gluten-free, stevia-free, soy-free, and, most importantly, bitter-free.

Macalat is made with Organic Heirloom Peruvian Cacao formulated with other superfood inclusions: Maca, Lucuma, Vanilla, Monk Fruit, and Cinnamon, which result in Macalat’s gentle caramel-like sweetness. The finishing touch is a fermented mushroom enzyme that assures a smooth sweet finish, without the least bit of bitter. This is perfect for people who have to monitor their sugar intake as my husband does and if they satisfy his sweet tooth, then you can best believe these are good!

Available on Macalat.com and Amazon.

I love that there are 3 lines to choose from, regular, keto-friendly, & diabetic-friendly. This allows so many more people to try them and fall in love with them as my family has. My husband can enjoy a diabetic snack right along with the rest of us and not feel left out. We break these out for movie nights, they are the prefect snack. so light, airy, and sweet!
