Have an Eggcelent Easter!

Hey everyone and welcome to my Easter themed blog! I know it’s been a while, but I hope that what you’re about to read will be worth the wait.  With three more weeks off of university, the lovely weather we’ve been having and a bank holiday on its way, I couldn’t think of anything better than to spend my days baking and blogging for you all!  If you follow my Instagram page naomilaws.comxox, you will have seen my daily Easter treats, but now it’s time to share the ingredients and recipes, so that you can make these yummy treats for your family and friends in time for the long Easter weekend.  I can assure you that your guests will be so impressed by these goodies and the kids will absolute love helping you make these!  As this is supposed to be a health blog, some of the treats are healthy, however we can’t waste all that Easter chocolate on the supermarket shelves, so some treats are unhealthy!


With the wonderful weather we had over the weekend, I had to start off by making refreshing Easter Fro-Yo.  Not only is it so easy to make, it will keep you cool on a sunny day and hopefully away from the ice-cream!  The kids will especially love this little treat, take them to the park this weekend and bring some Easter Fro-Yo along and watch their faces as they find the hidden surprises inside!


You will need:

  • Yoghurt (I bought 500g of Black Cherry and 500g of Blueberry flavoured yoghurt)
  • Granola (home-made or bought)
  • Fruit (frozen or fresh)
  • Sticks
  • Egg-shaped sillocone trays (buy online or in kitchen/cooking stores)
  • As an extra, I chose to sprinkle Flax seed, but you don’t need to do this


How to:

Step 1 – Fill 1/3 of the mould with yoghurt


Step 2 – Place a couple of pieces of fruit and the granola on top of the yoghurt


Step 3 – Fill the remaining mould with more yoghurt


Step 4 – Place the sticks gently into the yoghurt, making sure 1/4 of the stick is covered




Step 5 – Place the moulds in your freezer and leave for at least 2 hours, then enjoy!



Easter is the time of year where we consume so much chocolate until we feel physically sick and then tell ourselves never again! To help get you into this belly-bursting state, this next one had to be a big gooey chocolatey mess and oh my gosh, it is absolutely mouth-watering!


You will need:

  • Puff Pastry
  • Cream eggs (or Galaxy, Lindt eggs)
  • Icing sugar (decoration)
  • A tray 17886709_1021157361391663_1980068208_o

How to: 

Step 1 – Unroll your puff pastry and divide into quarters using a sharp knife, and then make a triangle out of each square



Step 2 – Unwrap and roll your egg from top to bottom of the triangle, tucking in the sides until the egg is wrapped up nicely into a little parcel



Step 3 – Crack an egg and dab a small amount on top of your parcels and place in the oven until it becomes a golden colour


Step 4 – Enjoy with family and friends

Devil Eggs 


Don’t worry, Easter treats don’t always have to be sweet.  One of my favourite dishes that I always make for BBQ’s or share with guests as an appetiser are devil eggs.  This savoury dish is quick and easy to make and allows you to change up the filling.

You will need:

  • Eggs (I tend to do 1 egg per guest)
  • Mayonaise
  • Curry powder
  • Herbs for decoration
  • A pan


How to: 

Step 1 – Boil the eggs


Step 2 – De-shell your eggs, cut in half and scoop out the hard yolk into a bowl




Step 3 – Add a spoon-full of curry powder and a spoon-full of mayonnaise to the yolk, adding more if necessary


Step 4 – Once mixed, fill your empty eggs with your new mixture and garnish with herbs and spices, I usually go for pepper, paprika, chilli powder and parsley.  Serve and enjoy!


Protein Nests 

Wow, I can’t stop eating these!  I think these are so scrumptious I think I will still be making them when Easter ends!  The flavour combination is so good and these nests will definitely re-fuel you after a workout this weekend, did I also mention how cute they look too?


You will need:

  • 1/2 cup of smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup of solid coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup of shredded coconut
  • 1 x cup of oats
  • 1 x pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 2 tbs cocoa powder
  • Mini eggs
  • A pan
  • A tray



How to:

Step 1 – Combine the peanut butter, honey, salt and coconut oil in a pan


Step 2 – Add the vanilla and cocoa powder


Step 3 – Add the oats


Step 4 – Add the shredded coconut


Step 5 – Take a table-spoon of the mixture and mould into a ‘nest-shape’ on your tray


Step 6 – Once cooled, top with 3 cadbury’s mini eggs and share!

Popcorn Bars

I love popcorn!  But for some reason, I only really buy it when I’m going to the cinema so this recipe was a good excuse to buy and eat popcorn.  The flavours are fabulous in this dish, the marshmallow/popcorn/mini egg/ginger biscuit/sprinke combo is like a birthday party for your taste buds!


You will need:

  • 1x bag popcorn
  • 100g butter
  • 4 x ginger biscuits (or any)
  • Mini eggs
  • Sprinkles
  • 20 x marshmallows
  • A pan
  • A tray


How to: 

Step 1 – Melt the butter and marshmallows in a pan until smooth


Step 2 – Add the popcorn and biscuits


Step 3 – Transfer to a baking tray, scatter sprinkles and place mini eggs on top



Step 4 – Leave to cool, slice and serve!

Easter Flapjack

No matter the holiday, flapjack is always a tasty treat to whip up for guests.  However, to make it just a tad more Easter-like, I bought myself some Easter themed cutters from online!  Once again, this is another quick and easy dish that is basically made of the leftover ingredients which I used for my protein nests.


You will need:

  • 400g oats 
  • 200g butter
  • 150g honey
  • 100g shredded coconut
  • Easter cutters
  • A tray



How to: 

Step 1 – Melt the butter and honey in a pan


Step 2 – Add the oats and shredded coconut, then transfer to a tray


Step 3 – Use your Easter cutters to make shapes



Step 4 – Bake in the oven until they’re a nice golden colour, leave to cool and enjoy!
