5 Bright Recipes To Please The Easter Bunny

Coming up with recipes that will appeal to the whole family is not always easy — especially when it comes to adding vegetables, because kids can be very particular about which vegetables they’ll eat (so can adults, for that matter). You can’t please all the people all the time, but carrots are one vegetable I find most people enjoy. That’s good news since carrots are not only delicious, but they’re also a powerhouse of nutrition, containing a high concentration of beta carotene (a substance that converts to Vitamin A in the body) and are a good source of dietary fiber, Vitamins C and K.

  • Carrot Ginger Miso Dip 1 of 5
    Carrot Ginger Miso Dip
    In my experience if you give kids something to dip their vegetables in, magically they want to give it a try. This Carrot Ginger Miso Dip adds beautiful bright color to any holiday spread!
  • Carrot Raisin Salad 2 of 5
    Carrot Raisin Salad
    I love eating raw carrots, but sometimes I find that they can be hard to digest if I eat too many or if I don't chew them really well. I imagine that the same thing might happen to kids. All you need is a grater to turn beta carotene packed carrots into a light, sweet salad that takes only minutes to prepare and goes down nice and easy!
  • Carrot Snack Sticks 3 of 5
    Carrot Snack Sticks
    I've made these Carrot Snack Sticks for our family and friends several times and they tend to go missing as soon as they come out of the oven. They're crunchy like a cracker and have a rich, sweet flavor. Even people who turn their noses up at veggies will ask for seconds of this yummy snack treat -- and you'll barely spend any time in the kitchen making them!
  • Carrot Pineapple Muffins 4 of 5
    Carrot Pineapple Muffins
    These Carrot Pineapple Muffins are gorgeous, super easy to prepare and make the perfect amount of muffins for a few days worth of meals and snacks for a family. The best part, though, is that they freeze extremely well too. You can toss a bunch in a zipper bag and into the freezer and whenever you need one, just put it in your little one's school lunchbox and it will be defrosted and ready to eat by lunchtime. Isn't it great when a recipe actually makes life easier?!
  • Carrot Cake Pancakes 5 of 5
    Carrot Cake Pancakes
    I love the idea of serving these orange-ish pancakes for Easter and topping them as we did with honey cream cheese instead of maple syrup. It turns this dish into a breakfast version of carrot cake that will make all your bunnies feel like hoppin'!
