And for those who follow specific diets, not only are they gluten-free, they are also grain-free, dairy-free, vegan and paleo!

As always, if you can’t eat peanuts for any reason, you could substitute your favorite nut or seed butter.

A  perfect homemade chocolate for Easter or any time!

And they are super EASY to make!

So let’s make them!

All you need is 5 ingredients you probably already have in your pantry:

creamy natural peanut butter (or any nut/ seed butter of choice)

maple syrup

coconut flour  (or almond flour though I have a preference for coconut flour here)

chocolate chips (semi-sweet or dark chocolate)

coconut oil

First we’ll make the peanut butter egg.

It’s just 3 ingredients: creamy peanut butter, maple syrup and coconut flour.

Pro tip: If using natural peanut butter as I do here, if possible, avoid the bottom of the jar when the peanut butter gets harder. For the best texture of peanut butter eggs you want the peanut butter to be more creamy and smooth.

And you can even see visually, it’s not that much maple syrup so the eggs themselves have great flavor but are not overly sweet.

The peanut butter egg comes together in 2 simple steps:

  1. Over low heat, combine the peanut butter and maple syrup until creamy.
  2. Then remove from heat and stir in coconut flour. (I use 2 tablespoons but if your peanut butter mix is particularly “wet” or liquid-y you might need an extra tablespoon to get the proper texture).

Then all you do is shape the batter into 15 eggs.

I like to divide them into 15 portions, roll into a ball then flatten into an egg but any method will work!

As a reference, these peanut butter eggs are about 1.25 inches wide x 2 -2.25 inches tall.

Place in the freezer and chill for 20 minutes.  I find it easier to dip in chocolate once, they’ve chilled a bit.

Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips and coconut oil slowly over low heat until smooth.

I’ve used both semi-sweet chocolate chips and dark chocolate chips, so it’s really personal preference.

Here I used Enjoy Life semi-sweet mini chips. (Amazon affiliate link)

Then using a fork, spoon or even your fingers (though it’s messier!), dip the chilled eggs into the melted and slightly cooled chocolate and coat completely.

If you want to add some extra chocolate drizzle, freeze for 5 more minutes, then drizzle with extra chocolate.

Chill for 40 minutes and enjoy!

Each bite is the perfect taste of peanut butter and chocolate!

Super decadent tasting and yummy but made with wholesome ingredients!

A super easy and delicious gluten-free homemade Easter candy, though they are perfect any time!

Ingredients

Peanut Butter Egg

  • 1 cup creamy natural peanut butter * if possible, avoid the bottom of the jar when the peanut butter gets harder. For the best texture of peanut butter eggs you want the peanut butter to be more creamy and smooth.
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour (up to 3 tablespoons) or 3-4 tablespoons almond flour

Chocolate Coating

  • cups chocolate chips of choice** I've used both semi-sweet chocolate and dark chocolate
  • teaspoons coconut oil

Instructions

  • In a small sauce pan, over low heat, mix the peanut butter and maple syrup until creamy and well combined. Remove from heat.
  • Stir in coconut flour and mix until a batter forms. It will be thick but very pliable, easy to roll and shape.
  • Place a piece of parchment paper on a small baking sheet and set aside.
  • Roll about 1 tablespoon batter into a ball then flatten into an egg shape, placing each peanut butter egg on the parchment lined baking tray. For reference, my peanut butter eggs are approximately 1.25 inches wide x 2 -2.25 inches tall.
  • Place eggs in freezer for 20 minutes.
  • While the eggs chill, in a small sauce pan over medium heat, melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil, stirring periodically. Let cool for a minute or two before dipping in peanut butter eggs so it's not to hot to handle.
  • Using a fork or your fingers (though it's messier!), dip the chilled peanut butter eggs into the melted (slightly cooled) chocolate, coat fully then return to the parchment lined tray.
  • If you want to drizzle extra chocolate on top, return to freezer for 5 minutes. Remove from freezer, (optional: gently take off any "extra" chocolate hanging off the edges), then use a spoon to drizzle chocolate on top.
  • Return to freezer and chill additional 40 minutes.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

*You can substitute any nut or seed butter of choice.
**If you don't mind having extra melted chocolate (you can dip berries into it!), you could melt up to 2 cups chocolate chips and 2 teaspoons coconut oil so that there is a lot of chocolate to dip into.
Store in freezer for up to 3 months.
Store in refrigerator for a week.
