Peanut Butter & Chocolate Easter Eggs

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Easter Eggs | Eat Yourself Green

Is it April already? What happened with 2019? How come we are already into the 2nd quarter of the year? I’ll never understand!

What I can get behind though, is the fact that Easter is just (literally) around the corner and we will be eating choccies this time next weekend. Woot woot!

However much I love chocolate, I really can’t deal with milk chocolate anymore and all the processed stuff you get at the shops now gives me a tummy ache. Healthy living has its downfalls peeps!

So to avoid milky treats and waste too, I decided to make my own little Easter-y treats. And for the first time ever I’m making an Easter inspired recipe (oops). I hope you guys like peanut butter then because these babies are packed with peanut butter goodness. HOT TIP: you can sub the peanut butter for other nut butter but you might have to be mindful if the nut butter is not as runny.

So enough with the chit chat and let’s get started with these beauties! You don’t want to make Easter without them.

First of all, I love this recipe as it combines both of the best things in the world: Chocolate + Peanut Butter. But also, it has a nice balance between sweet and nutty without being too sweet ~or~ nutty.

Plus, I could whip up this in less than half an hour (with freezing time included) and with only 5 ingredients! You heard me right!

Only problem is the chocolate melts so you might want to get in quick (have a feeling this won’t be a problem though).

So let’s get it started?

    I have to agree about it already being April Larissa! The year is going too quickly, but I am looking forward to the long Easter weekend.

    Firstly, can I say that I love the photos in this recipe! They’re really lovely, so well done on your camera work.

    I can’t seem to get myself to like peanut butter, so I might give this a go with cashew nut butter instead. That’s quite nice and runny.

    Also, could you sub out the coconut flour for rye flour? Or does the coconut help give a specific taste? I ask because I won a bag of rye flour in a raffle and have no clue how to use it up haha.

      Hi Kevin,

      Thanks for your kind words! It’s been a long time practicing with this camera but I’m slowly getting the hang of it 😉
      So, great idea to swap the peanut for another nut butter. As for the coconut flour, if you don’t have or like, I recommend using almond meal instead as it can be eaten raw…rye flour would be best used in a bread, fritters or muffins maybe? But make sure to cook/bake it before eating 😉

      Hope this helps! 😀

        I tried making these with cashewnut butter and stuck with the coconut flour like you originally suggest and they tasted great! I’m very tempted to make them at any time of year because they were eaten very quickly.
        Thanks again for the recipe Larissa!
