Paleo Easter Recipes
1. Slow Cooker Ham – Thriving on Paleo
Ham – Honey – Orange – Rosemary – Coconut Oil – Apple Cider Vinegar
This is one of the easiest recipes in the world. Literally, all you do is place the ham in the crockpot, toss all of the other ingredients on top of the ham, turn the crockpot on and wait. You can go on with your day and all of the other Easter activities you have planned. It takes 4-6 hours to cook depending on the size and your crockpot and how well done you want it. Then all you have to do is come back when it’s time to make the side dishes for Easter dinner. Unless you’re lucky like me and get your guests to bring all of the side dishes. That’s pretty darn easy.
2. Garlic Rosemary Roasted Rack of Lamb – Savor the Best
Lamb – Garlic – Rosemary – Olive Oil
I know in some families lamb is a traditional Easter dinner dish. It was that way for my dad. His mother would roast a lamb every Easter. Now, my mom has a totally different story. She grew up on a farm where they raised sheep so sometimes they would have mutton. Mutton is what you call the meat from a mature sheep but the meat from a baby sheep is called lamb. My grandparents could never bring themselves to kill a baby sheep. Probably for several reasons but the main one being, it was a waste. If you let the sheep grow bigger you could get a lot more meat. Anyway, my mom didn’t like the taste of mutton, it has a pretty strong flavor. Lamb is understandably a lot more tender than mutton. Besides they didn’t always raise sheep so they didn’t always have it readily available. The point of this story is, we never had lamb for Easter at our house. It was too expensive and mom didn’t think she liked it anyway. Plus she didn’t know how to cook it. If you want lamb for Easter you don’t have to be like my mom. Here is a really good recipe with instructions on how to roast a rack of lamb. It looks delicious to me. It’s really easy and only takes 20 minutes to roast a rack of lamb.
3. Easy Baked Sirloin Roast with Herb Rub – Beauty and the Foodie
Roast – Paprika – Onion Powder – Cayenne Pepper – Oregano – Thyme – Garlic – Olive Oil
This is a really easy way to bake a sirloin roast in the oven. It takes about one to three hours depending on how big the roast is and your oven etc. All you do is made a rub out of all the spices, rub it all over the outside of the roast and put it in the oven. If your oven is large enough you could roast some vegetables toward the end of the cooking time and you’ve got a full meal ready to go. You’ll be able to impress your friends and family with the roast, for sure.
4. Dinner Rolls – Paleo Spirit
Tapioca Flour – Coconut Flour – Olive Oil – Egg
Rolls are the number one thing I miss not being able to eat on a Paleo diet. I am also allergic to almonds so I can’t eat almond flour. I found the recipes for dinner rolls that are nut-free, gluten-free and grain-free. It just might save my life emotionally at least. They look and taste a lot like “regular” rolls that it really helps my morale. These will be perfect to go with your Paleo Easter dinner. In case you’re wondering, tapioca flour and tapioca starch is the exact same thing.
5. Cauliflower Alfredo Scalloped Sweet Potatoes – Food Faith Fitness
Vegetable Broth – Cauliflower – Avocado Oil – Onion – Garlic – Almond Milk – Sweet Potato
Growing up for Easter dinner we always had baked ham and scalloped potatoes. My brother loves scalloped potatoes and ham. He would always beg to have it. My mother was eager to please him once in a while so that was one of the times, he got his way. My mother’s scalloped potato recipe isn’t even close to Paleo. Even if I were to just replace the russet potatoes with sweet potatoes. So I found this Paleo scalloped potato recipe that I want to try making for Easter dinner this year.
6. Avocado Deviled Eggs – Hold The Grain
Eggs – Paleo Mayonnaise – Avocado – White Wine Vinegar – Dill
I love deviled eggs. But when I discovered deviled eggs with avocado in the egg yolk mixture I couldn’t believe how much more I loved deviled eggs. Wow, I was blown away. I’ll never make them without avocados again. There is a link to my homemade Paleo mayonnaise recipe. Tess includes her Paleo mayonnaise recipe in this recipe also. You can use either one, they are both good and actually pretty similar. But now you have choices. Choices are always good.
7. Roasted Honey Glazed Carrots – Delicious Meets Healthy
Carrots – Honey – Olive Oil
I remember the first time I made honey glazed carrots. That’s when I decided that I actually liked cooked carrots. These carrots go to the next level. They are tossed together with all of the ingredients before they are roasted. The result is an amazing side dish for your Easter dinner. I think you could use baby carrots to make this but you wouldn’t have to peel or cut up the carrots. I’m all for making my life easier. Even when it comes to cooking. The baby carrots I see in the store are a lot smaller than they used to be so I don’t see any problem with using them. The only difference is it would take a little longer to cook them if the carrots are bigger.
– My Natural Family
Carrots – Raisins – Maple Syrup – Coconut Flour – Saigon Cinnamon – Nutmeg – Eggs – Pumpkin Puree – Coconut Oil – Cashews
I absolutely adore carrot cake so when I was forced to eat a Paleo diet I was so sad. Then I decided to do something about it. I realized I could make the cake with alternative flour and a substitute cream cheese frosting. That’s when I developed this recipe made with coconut flour and frosting made with cashews. It turned out both beautiful and delicious. You need to give it a try.
9. Carrot Cake Cookies – Running to the Kitchen
Almond Flour – Shredded Coconut – Cinnamon – Maple Syrup – Vanilla – Carrots – Cashews – Coconut Butter – Lemon Juice
I looked all over the internet to see what people eat for dessert for Easter dinner besides carrot cake. I couldn’t find anything except candy. I guess Easter is all about candy but I just don’t consider candy to be dessert. Candy is just candy, a treat not dessert. I did find some carrot cake cookie recipes. I thought that maybe some of you would think it easier to make some cookies rather than cake.
In many ways, cookies are easier to make than cake. The only exception, in my opinion, is the baking part. So either way, if you want to make carrot cake cookies or carrot cake, I’ve got you covered with these cookies and my carrot cake just above on number 8. They both have cashew cream cheese frosting.
