Paleo Easter Egg Cookies
15 min Prep, 25 min Cook
As you can imagine, Easter treats are huge in Italy! And because I wanted to stick to this delicious Italian tradition, I created a recipe for Paleo Easter Egg Cookies together with a quick video that shows you how to make them.
You should really be in Italy at this time of the year: Chocolate Easter eggs are ubiquitous, chocolate shaped rabbits and hens are in every store, and all of the bakeries and pastry shops fill their windows with amazing sweet and savory treats, from Colomba to Torta Pasqualina.
There’s really something for everybody: while Italian kids start collecting dozens of chocolate Easter eggs the 2 weeks before Easter, lining them all down on top of the kitchen cabinets, adults go crazy over “Colomba”, a soft, spongy cake shaped like a dove, and scattered with candied orange peel and caramelized almonds.
All of these treats are of course delicious (and in the past, I admit, I had my fair share of them), but from a health standpoint they are not that recommendable :(
For this reason, together with my mom, I created a great recipe to make Paleo Easter Egg Cookies and in this short video I show you guys how to make them.
They of course have no gluten nor grains and they are dairy and sugar free as well. And the presentation… well, that speaks for itself!I hope you guys enjoyed these Italian easter egg cookies and I can’t wait to see your own version of this recipe!
And if you can’t make it in time to bake these cookies for Easter, simply give them a different shape and enjoy this delicious and healthy treat whenever you want!
Have a wonderful and happy Easter and I will catch you next week!!
