Did someone say healthy Easter Eggs?

Did someone say healthy Easter Eggs?

Fancy a healthy Easter egg? Erm, excuse me? Is there even such a thing?

Prepare yourselves folks – because despite the traditional Easter egg representing a diet-breaker in one easy sitting, you can enjoy confectionary on this happy day, without feeling like you’ve just devoured your entire years’ worth of calories.

Here are a few of our favourite, kinder to the waistline, eggs for Easter. Enjoy!

1. HOTEL CHOCOLAT 100% DARK CHOCOLATE HARD-BOILED EASTER EGG

A little bit spendy at £15, this egg is currently looking like one of the lowest sugar-content eggs on the market, with just 4.8g per 100g of chocolate. This is mainly due to its 100% cocoa solid content. With raisins, almonds and hazelnuts, you can almost get away with calling it healthy!

2. PLAMIL’S ORGANIC VEGAN EASTER RANGE

Ranging from £2-5, the Plamil bars and Easter eggs are the first certified organic and vegan chocolate products, and this year there is a no sugar range for those who are feeling like behaving really well this Easter. Try the white chocolate egg, with Madagascan vanilla, made with rice milk rather than dairy.

3. HOLLAND & BARRETT NO ADDED SUGAR ALTERNATIVE TO MILK CHOCOLATE EGG

An absolute snip at £1, this no sugar egg from Holland & Barret is great for diabetes sufferers – and of course those looking for a low sugar alternative for their Easter bingeing!

4. MONTEZUMA'S ORGANIC DARK CHOCOLATE WITH COCOA NIBS ECO EASTER EGG

Montezuma makes delicious chocolate and their egg is one for the eco-conscious as well as the health conscious. With environmentally friendly, eco-egg packaging that is only made from two sections of biodegradable paper, this egg is another low sugar option with 7g sugar per 30g portion (25g per 100g) and 74% cocoa solids. This one will set you back £8.99.

5. BOOJA-BOOJA

These beautiful eggs, created by artists in Kashmir, not only look gorgeous, but taste divine as well. They contain truffles, which are vegan, dairy, gluten and soya-free.

The papier mache eggs are also too lovely to throw away, so this is another great eco choice, as well as a healthier one.

These are the priciest on our list, but they are simply divine. Eggs are from £20-40.
