Homemade Vegan Peanut Butter Eggs

Homemade Peanut Butter Eggs

My boyfriend suggested I make an Easter recipe. But I had no idea what to make. And then it came to me….

Homemade Peanut Butter Eggs

Peanut Butter Eggs! If you know me at all you know I have an unhealthy obsession with chocolate and peanut butter. But if you share in my obsession, it’s good news for you, because I make lots of chocolate/ peanut butter recipes.

Homemade Peanut Butter Eggs

I tried my best the make these as healthy as I could. They are made without any added sugar. They’re gluten free and vegan. Much healthier than Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs ;)

It’s funny, if you had told me 2 years ago that I would be the type of girl who would make her own peanut butter eggs, I would have laughed at you… And if you told me one day I would run my own healthy food blog, I would have been hysterical. Yet, here we are, and I honestly can’t imagine doing anything else right now. This website is becoming such a fulfilling project. So thank you, to all of you.
