I am not the biggest Easter or brunch person, but what I do love about both is the social gatherings it involves. My family does not really have any Easter traditions after we stopped searching for Easter eggs, but we usually all spend a weekend at my partent’s house with lots of food, laughter and good company. My mom, my sisters and I usually think about one or the other special dish that we will make for our brunch, but I would rather call it a longer breakfast as we don’t really cook much. It’s more a big fruit salad, granola, oats, avocado and bread kind of breakfast, which I absolutely love. So I’ve piled up some Easter brunch recipes that are already on the blog – maybe one of it will make your Easter brunch table.
Healthy Easter Braid
I know this dish may seem very strange to non-Germans, but Easter Braids are a traditional German recipe that we eat over the Easter Holidays. My mom makes the best not healthy version, but since I love adding a bit more nutrients, this one has become my favorite Easter tradition yet. If you’re not German – it’s a sweet and yeasty bread with a fluffy texture. It tastes best with some chia jam or honey drizzled on top.
Healthy Chia Jam
We all know that jam is probably a German’s worst eating habit. We eat soooo much jam. This healthier chia jam with chia seeds and only a bit of natural sweetener is so much more delicious than the original. Trust me.
Yes, I know, we should not use the word “Nutella“, but nobody would google “healthy chocolate nougat spread”, am I right? This healthy version actually contains REAL nuts, no palm oil or dairy and therefore tastes a lot more natural, and in my opinion, much better than the original.
Homemade Almond Butter
It’s no secret that I eat almond butter every day. It’s simply my favorite thing ever. And it’s so easy to make, because you really only need almonds. That’s it. Isn’t it fascinating how such a hard thing as an almond can turn into this super smooth butter? I love spreading it on sourdough bread, to stirr it into my oats or bake with it.
Rhubarb Strawberry Parfait
Who else is excited for rhubarb season? You either love it or hate it – I am definitely on the love side. If you combine rhubarb with strawberries, you’ve found the way to my heart. So this Rhubarb Strawberry Parfait definitely is a love affair.
Overnight Oats Basic Recipe
Overnight Oats are my all-time favorite breakfast recipe. There are so healthy, they are delicious and they are so versatile. Top it with whatever is in season. And top it with all of the beauty foods such as pumpkin, flax and chia seeds.
Crunchy Apple Overnight Oats
Crunchy Apple Overnight Oats are a farewell to apple season. We are beginning to say hi to berries and spring fruit, which means that apples must go. Of course we can buy apples all year long, but I love them fresh and in season the most.
Healthy Bircher Muesli
Healthy Bircher Muesli is a variation of my overnight oats, just with lemon juice, nuts and shredded apple. This recipe was one of the very first on the blog, and it is to this day my favorite.
Blueberry Millet Pancakes
Brunch is the perfect excuse to make pancakes. Most of us do not have time to make them in the morning during the week, so on the weekends, these Blueberry Millet Pancakes are the best treat for the entire family.
Lemony Almond Pancakes
Lemony Almond Pancakes are perfect if you don’t have such a big sweet tooth, but still like pancakes. What’s especially delicious is the lemon infused maple syrup, which perfectly combines both the sour and the sweet flavor.
Whole-Grain Rye Bread
Of course you cannot have a brunch without some delicious homemade bread. This whole-grain rye bread is not gluten-free, but you can definitely make it with gluten-free flour, too.
Fig and Walnut Bread
This is also one of the first recipes from the blog as you can perfectly see by the quality of the pictures. But I am not ashamed of it. Everyone has to start somewhere, right? Regardless of the image, this Fig and Walnut Bread is too good not to try it.
Chia Superfood Bread
Chia Superfood Bread is a variation of Sarah Britton’s Lifechanging Bread. It’s gluten-free, yeast-free and full of goodness. It’s also quite rich, so you’ll probably be full after just a few slices.
Beetroot Hummus is probably the most beautiful dish on the planet. Just look at this color, guys. I am seriously in love.
