Here are 12 of the best clean eating Easter dinner recipes. I have recipes for main dishes, side dishes, lots of desserts and a bunch of Easter candy recipes too. Easter will be here before you know it and we better get planning what we are eating for Easter dinner and our family Easter party.
We try to eat clean at our house and I’ve had a hard time finding clean eating recipes for Easter, I finally found 12 clean eating Easter Recipes that I think are great to share with you.
We have an Easter party at Grandma’s house every year and I’m going to share some of these recipe ideas with her. For Grandma’s Easter parties we always have an egg hunt, play games and eat real, healthy treats. That means we usually have a little ham sandwich, deviled eggs of some sort, carrot sticks with dip but not much candy or dessert.
Last year Grandma made rice Krispy treats, with food coloring in the marshmallows in the shape of eggs. Grandma was pretty smart, she made the Rice Krispy treats and then put it inside of larger size plastic Easter eggs. That made it really easy to make the eggs into a perfect egg shape plus they were all the same size. The grandkids loved it.
In my opinion, it wouldn’t be Easter without carrot cake and candy. Check out all of the chocolate Easter egg recipes I have here. Don’t forget the rabbit food, which is what my aunt calls fresh vegetables like carrots sticks, celery sticks, and green peas, They make great veggies for Easter brunch or lunch.

Potatoes – Chicken Stock – Milk – Butter – Onion – Red & Green Bell Pepper – Sour Cream – Cheddar Cheese – Parmesan Cheese
These cheesy potatoes are made with real potatoes. Where I live they are known as funeral potatoes. That’s because whenever there is a funeral all the neighbors get together and make a meal for the family after the funeral. We serve these potatoes because they are easy to make ahead of time and cook just before the meal. Another reason is that they go really well with baked ham and we often serve baked ham for the funeral also.
Truth be known at our house growing up we ate them for a lot of different special occasions, especially when we had ham. Ham and cheesy potatoes were my brother’s favorite meal so we had it quite often, usually on a Sunday afternoon. That’s because Mom had more time to cook on Sundays so she made nicer meals then.

12. Classic Carrot Cake – Amy’s Healthy Baking
Whole Wheat Flour – Coconut Oil – Maple Syrup – Greek Yogurt – Whole Milk – Carrots – Ricotta Cheese – Agave
This classic carrot cake is chocked full of warm spices and soft carrots. You won’t miss the calories or fat from the traditional carrot cakes. Apparently, Amy doesn’t really understand what clean eating is. She always states to use low-fat milk and yogurts in her recipes. Just ignore that and always use whole milk and full-fat cheeses when you can. Low-fat milk is not clean, it’s processed and remember that sugar makes you fat, not fat.
