Healthy Easter Crispy Treats


It's just a few days until Easter so I thought I'd share this recipe for some super cute and healthy crispy treats that are perfect for kids at Easter. The recipe is by Deliciously Ella and I've just added in the mini eggs on top to make them Easter themed, if you're interested in eating clean then you have to pop over to the Deliciously Ella website where you'll find loads of super healthy and very yummy recipes.


Makes around 20 crispy treats

1 and a ½ cups of popped/puffed quinoa (60g) I got mine here
1/3 of a cup of raw cacao powder 
(80g)
6 tablespoons of 100% pure maple syrup
5 tablespoons of coconut oil, I always use Lucy Bee Coconut Oil
2 tablespoons almond butter (or any other nut butter)
small/bite-sized cupcake cases

These crispy treats are really quick and easy to make all you need to do is pop the coconut oil, maple syrup, cacao powder and almond butter in a saucepan and gently heat until everything is melted and smooth.

Put the quinoa puffs in a bowl and pour the melted ingredients over them then mix well until the quinoa is totally covered, I found that I could actually add a bit more quinoa at this point as there was still some chocolate mixture in the bottom of the bowl.

Spoon the mixture into the mini cupcake cases and pop a mini egg on top, I used Tesco's Micro Eggs and place in the freezer for 20 minutes to set.


I think they make the perfect bite sized treat for kids or for adults who are dieting or just want to eat clean. 

Happy Easter!

  1. Oh they look like a lovely alternative to the usual crispy cakes. I'm trying to cut right down on the rubbish the boys eat and they already eat fairly healthily. This would be perfect for us.
