The Best Kosher for Passover Desserts

With everything from Passover cakes to Kosher for Passover cookies, pastries, and more, you’ll also find these recipes are:

Low- Carb Passover Dessert Recipes

I’ve put together my favorite Pesach recipes for you so you can have the tastiest, easiest Low-Carb Passover Desserts at your Passover Seder.

Passover Cakes

I love using fruit in my Kosher for Passover cakes. It’s one of my signature tricks for creating healthy dessert recipes!

cinnamon apple cake

My Cinnamon Apple Cake recipe is not overly sweet and brims with the aroma of warming cinnamon, my favorite healing super-spice.

It’s amazing to see how many of you make this healthy cake for Passover. It’s truly a fan-favorite recipe!

Cinnamon Coffee Cake

My Cinnamon Coffee Cake is another fan-favorite with this wonderful super spice.

I love cinnamon because it regulates blood sugar and is used in Ayurveda to calm the Vata dosha. Sorry to mix Ayurveda with the Jewish holidays, but that’s how we roll here.

Paleo Honey Cake

Honey Cake isn’t just for the High Holy Days, it’s a wonderful Passover cake recipe and with a handful of ingredients, an incredibly easy cake recipe to boot!

orange cake

My Gluten-Free Orange Cake with Almond Flour is made with whole oranges, seeds, peel, and all.

My Passover Torte is made with three spongy vanilla cakes, layered with raspberry jam, and smothered in Chocolate Frosting, main photo pictured above.

Passover Cookies

Passover cookies? Yes please! Pass the chametz-free cookies around your Seder table and your guests won’t know what hit ’em.

Coconut Macaroons are a classic Passover dessert.

Finally, if you want to uplevel your upcycling game, make my Almond Pulp Macaroons which use the leftover almond pulp from my easy Almond Milk recipe.


Meringues are another classic Kosher for Passover dessert recipe –these have two ingredients, egg whites, and maple syrup.

Coffee Meringue Acorns

For an incredible burst of flavor try my Coffee Meringue Acorns. This Passover cookie is a coffee meringue, dipped in luscious dark chocolate and delightfully crunchy pistachios.

Passover Pies

I didn’t grow up having Passover pies but I know many people enjoy these Passover desserts at the end of their Seder.

Gluten-Free Apple Galette Recipe

Try my Apple Galette, a rustic apple pie that my family loves all year round.

paleo chocolate pie

If you’re not in the mood for a fruity Pesach dessert, my Dairy-Free Chocolate Pie recipe will do the trick. Chocolate and Passover are a match made in heaven.

Passover Bars

If you’re in need of child-friendly treats, you’ll love my Passover bars.

Try Low-Carb Funfetti Blondies, Baby Pantry’s favorite.

Keto Brownies

Or Mr. Pantry’s fave, my Keto Brownies.

Paleo Marble Cupcakes

For Big Bro Pantry’s beloved Marble Cupcakes check out my second book, Gluten-Free Cupcakes. He wrote that recipe with me when he was eleven years old.

Turmeric Golden Bars

Pardon me for the cupcake detour! Back to bars. For a supercharged, super healthy Passover Seder, try my Golden Turmeric Bars.


Growing up back in the 1970s, we had this Passover candy. Now things are a little different since we think of fruit as nature’s candy.

Stuffed Dates with Pistachios

My Stuffed Dates with Pistachios are a simple showstopper. They’re super easy to make, but taste unbelievable.

sesame truffles

For another healthy Passover dessert with a Middle Eastern twist try my Sesame Truffles.

What Passover Means

If you’re wondering, “what is Passover?” I’m here to help. Passover (Hebrew, Pesach) celebrates the Biblical story of the Book of Exodus.

This Jewish holiday commemorates our liberation from slavery and journey out of Egypt. On the eve of this liberation, the angel of death “passed over” the homes of the Israelites, sparing the firstborn, hence the term Passover.

Passover Seder

During Passover, we have our Seder. We read from the Passover haggadah to recount the story of our liberation from Egypt, and have the Passover meal.

Passover Greeting

Passover is one of our joyous holidays. It is a celebration as opposed to a day of solemnity like Yom Kippur.

Our Passover greeting is Chag Smaech (Hebrew, happy holiday) or Good Yontuf (Yiddish, literally = gut from German, and yom tov, good day, from Hebrew). Yiddish is an amalgamation of German and Hebrew.

Big hugs, enjoy the kosher for Passover desserts, and Chag Samaech to you all!

  1. This is great – thanks Elana! We’ll be celebrating Passover for the first time as a family this year, so these recipes – and the rest of your Passover recipes – are perfect! Thanks so much :)

  2. Hi Elaina,
    Thanks for your wonderful recipes! love and enjoy making and eating one or more of them every day! Sometimes I jump straight to the recipe and do not read your intro. This time, I did read the intro for honey cake and noticed, under your subtitle “What Is Honey Cake?”, that you referred to it as an apple dessert, but I do not see any apples in the recipe. Am I missing something?

  3. Thank you so much for your wonderful recipes. I own all of your books and used your website for our matzo, matzo ball soup, charoset, paleo macaroons and carrot kugel for tonight’s dinner. My first time cooking for the holiday and it may have been our tastiest Passover yet. Thank you!

    • Robin, thanks bunches for being on this healing path with me and for buying my books! Happy Passover to you and yours :-)
