Easter can be a tricky time when you’re trying to avoid sugar. One of the best ways to make sure you don’t fall face first into a pile of Easter eggs is to have delicious sugar-free alternatives available. With the smell of cinnamon and spices coming from the oven… You’ll totally forget about any sugary store-bought Easter treats. Even better if you can get the kids involved in this one! Having little hands to help you roll cookies and make chocolate crosses will make a fun Easter weekend activity – although you’ll have to fight over who gets to lick the bowl!
