My boyfriend suggested I make an Easter recipe. But I had no idea what to make. And then it came to me….
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.
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.
- ¾ cup gluten free rolled oats
- ½ cup dry roasted peanuts
- ½ cup natural peanut butter
- pinch of sea salt if your peanut butter is not salted
- 1 tbsp coconut butter or coconut oil
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- ¾ cup dark chocolate chips
- Combine all ingredients (except chocolate chips) together in a food processor and blend together well. You will need to stop the food processor a few times and scrap the edges to make sure everything blends together evenly.
- Scoop out 1 heaping tbsp of dough and form into an egg shape.
- Place eggs on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
- Place cookie sheet in the freeze for about 20 minutes.
- Melt chocolate chips in a double broiler or in the microwave (taking it out and stirring every 30 seconds until melted).
- Remove eggs from freezer one at a time and dip into melted chocolate, using a fork to turn over to make sure each gets fully coated.
- Lift egg out of chocolate with a fork and let the excess run off.
- Place eggs on a new parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
- Once all eggs are completed, place back into freezer for at least 10 minutes to set.
