I have a special treat for you in this post. More than one, actually: Easter crispy treats in the form of Easter eggs and lollipops with fun FREE printable labels that match my free Easter basket printable and Easter party printables kit.

My new Easter egg and lollipop printables come in four designs: two shaped as Easter eggs and two shaped as squares. Each says "Homemade just for you" and "Happy Easter," as you can see below:
As a bonus, I have a link to a special recipe that will make a healthier version of the classic Rice Krispies treats so many of us grew up with. (Scroll down for links to the free Easter egg and lollipop label printables, the recipe, a free Easter basket template I've already posted on this blog and my full Easter printables kit.)
The recipe for the Easter eggs and lollipops is healthier because it incorporates quinoa, which most people think is a grain but really is related to plants like spinach and chard. (It doesn't taste like them though!) But where it comes from is less important than what it does. It has 8 grams of protein per serving, which you certainly can't say about Rice Krispies (it has 2.3 grams). And that protein is considered "complete," because it contains all eight of the amino acids we need to get from our food. Quinoa also has as much calcium as milk, without the cholesterol; slow-burning or "good" carbohydrates; fiber; and is a great source of magnesium, manganese, vitamin E, B2, B6, folic acid, potassium and iron.
The Quintessential Quinoa Cookbook, was in the top 1,000 sellers of all products on Amazon the day it was launched. She knows her stuff. So I highly recommend your trying her healthier crispy treats. They still have marshmallows and butter, which makes them quite yummy. But they also have all kinds of other good things, so you can sneak some nutrition into your kids' Easter baskets.
