After forty days of giving up their favorite sweets, most people are ready to treat themselves. Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, kicks off the Lenten season and Easter brings it to an end which means that many people splurge on the snacks they were separated from. There are plenty of recipes that are perfect for enjoying during Easter with more wholesome ingredients than the junk foods people often give up for Lent.
Look for baking mixes that are free of GMO/gluten/soy/grain and are low in sugar while being high in protein. Their products and recipes make the perfect addition to the snack table at every gathering. Some popular recipes on the company website include Speckled Vanilla Cupcakes, Toasted Coconut Cake, and Savory Bread Pudding.

Add a swirl of colorful frosting on top to make the cupcakes a beautiful addition to the dessert table. Recipe
