Its that time of year again and if you’re anything like us you’re dying to get amongst all of the delicious Easter treats that are creeping into your Instagram feed and finding it hard to make it through a check out without a mini-easter egg in your mouth (they’re tiny right!?)

We spoke to our resident Nutritionist and Naturopath the fabulous Amy Hotz about Easter and her best advice is to be mindful of the amount of sugar you are consuming during what is, traditionally, an unhealthy time of year. To sweeten your Easter weekend and avoid the highs and lows of excess sugar consumption Amy has shared with us two of her favourite Sugar Free Easter recipes – perfect for sharing with friends (if you don’t eat all of the muffin mix before it reaches the oven…) Enjoy and Happy Easter!!
