Healthy Easter Brunch Recipes
1. Apple Cinnamon Protein Pancakes
These pancakes are topped with warm, cinnamon-spiced apple slices, so there’s no need to drown your pancakes in syrup.
This recipe is gluten-free, but you don’t need to buy expensive gluten-free flour blends. All you need are oats and a bit of coconut flour. If you haven’t used coconut flour before, it’s a great one to have on hand for gluten-free baking.
2. Zucchini, Red Pepper, Sweet Potato Frittata
Frittatas are a healthy alternative to quiche, and easier to make. Our zucchini, red pepper, and sweet potato frittata recipe tastes delicious. It will be the star of any brunch.
3. Sheet Pan Sweet Potato Hash With Eggs
Spiced with fragrant cumin, chili, and smoked paprika, topped with fresh cilantro and filled with fresh veggies and beans, this brunch dish is so filling, you’ll want to eat it for dinner, too.
