Sticking to a keto diet during holidays can feel daunting. But it doesn’t have to be! You can absolutely have a fully keto meal on any holiday without feeling deprived at all, and even without your guests noticing! Read on for a full, fabulous Easter keto menu plan that will wow your friends and family!
Keto Easter Menu
Whether you celebrate Easter with brunch or a big dinner, this menu has you covered! All of your Easter favorites are included in low-carb versions!
I never turn down an opportunity for brunch. And one of my favorite things to make is this Bacon Gruyere Egg Bake. Not only is it ridiculously delicious, it’s incredibly easy to make. You can even prep ahead by cooking the bacon, grating the cheese, and chopping the green onion the day before. Then on Easter morning, you can just mix and bake!
These Cheddar Chive Scones are the dark horse of brunch. They look unassuming, but once you taste one, you’ll be trying to hide the rest of the plate from your family. Because now you love these more than them.
This Keto Eggs Benedict Casserole from Peace, Love and Low Carb is Easter brunch perfection. I adore Eggs Benedict but haven’t eaten it since switching to a keto diet. This recipe gives you all the flavors (hello, creamy dreamy hollandaise!) without the carbs!
How adorable are these Hot Cross Scones from All Day I Dream About Food? The delicious flavors of hot cross buns but simpler to make!
If you’re looking for more authentic hot cross buns, check out these Keto Hot Cross Buns from Gnom-Gnom!
What’s Easter dinner without ham? Most ham glazes are full of sugar, but this Keto Maple Glazed Ham from Have Butter Will Travel is made with sugar free maple syrup and looks absolutely gorgeous.
If sugar free maple syrup is difficult for you to find, this recipe from Peace, Love and Low Carb uses a brown sugar substitute. And if you’d prefer a recipe that doesn’t use low carb sweeteners at all, this recipe from Diet Doctor uses dried fruit.
And if lamb is more your jam (see what I did there?) this Instant Pot Leg of Lamb by All Day I Dream About Food looks amazing. And it cooks in the Instant Pot?? This looks way too good to be that easy.
If you’re not into red meat, check out this gorgeous Roast Chicken with Lemon and Rosemary Garlic Butter recipe.
What your plate needs next to one of those beautiful cuts of meat are some fluffy mashed potatoes. Oh, wait. Mashed potatoes are full of carbs. But this Perfect Mashed Cauliflower is thick and velvety like mashed potatoes and has fooled at least one person in my family.
While your oven is busy cooking your egg bake or ham, you can make these Skillet Roasted Brussels Sprouts from Peace, Love and Low Carb. They have a creamy parmesan sauce that’s sure to please. Plus bacon, obvs.
If Asparagus is more your style, check out this recipe for Ham and Cheese Asparagus from All Day I Dream About Food.
These Keto Hawaiian Sweet Rolls pair perfectly with ham. And if you have leftovers, they make great ham and cheese sandwiches!
This Blackberry Lime Tart is a serious show stopper. The stunning colors are only topped by the flavors. You’d never know it’s sugar free!

What’s Easter without carrot cake? And these gorgeous Carrot Cake Cupcakes from A Full Living will fulfill all your carrot cake fantasies. Do you not have carrot cake fantasies? Only me? Ok then.
Some people don’t like using low carb sweeteners, either because they don’t like the taste, or they find they can upset their stomachs. That’s where this Low Carb Chocolate Raspberry Tart comes in. It’s sweetened only with raspberries and dark chocolate and is sure to impress.
How gorgeous is this Keto Easter Egg Cake? Carolyn of All Day I Dream About Food is the master of keto baking, so when she makes a cake, you know it’s going to be good. Plus this one is just so pretty!
These cute little Easter Egg Nests are completely no-bake, and are also sweetener-free. I filled these eggs with peanut butter, but you can adjust the filling to your liking.

As you can see, you can have a huge Keto Easter spread without adding carbs to your plate and keeping your guests impressed!
