Over 20 healthy recipes to make for Passover. Lots of Seder ideas as well as everyday meals, like breakfast, snacks and dessert.

As many of you know, Passover starts this week! My husband, Isaac, is Jewish and I love celebrating all the Jewish holidays with him and his family. We’ve been together for almost 19 years now so I’ve been to many Seders.

A collage with recipes for Passover - a flourless chocolate cake, charoset, asparagus and macaroons.

Many of the recipes here on Eating Bird Food are kosher for Passover because I do a lot of baking with almond flour and coconut flour, but I’m including lots of ideas in this post… healthy options for your Seder, as well as some options for everyday meals for the week of Passover.

Healthy Passover Recipes + Bubbie’s Charoset Recipe

A Sephardic charoset recipe made with raisins, dates, dried figs and almonds. This tasty spread is delicious on matzoh for Passover and a must-have on your seder plate.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 14


  • 1 cup raw almonds, you can also use pecans or walnuts
  • 2 cups raisins
  • 4 oz medjool dates, (about 7 pitted)
  • 4 dried figs
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1-2 Tablespoons sweet red wine or fruit juice, I used pomegranate juice


  • Add nuts, raisins, dates, figs and applesauce into the food processor and process until combined, gently adding wine/juice as you grind to help keep it moving.
  • Once the mixture is fully combined and looks like a coarse paste, remove the charoset from the processor and place it into a bowl or container.
  • Serve as a spread for matzoh.
  • Refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for later use. It should last at least 5-7 days in the fridge.


  • Dates: If your dates seem dry, you can soak them in water for 5-10 minutes to rehydrate before using.
  • Almonds: If you don’t have almonds, you can use pecans or walnuts instead.
  • Halving the recipe: This recipe makes about 3.5 cups so if you’re only making it for a small family, you could easily half the recipe.
