Healthy Reese’s peanut butter eggs are an easy vegan and gluten-free Easter treat (or perfect to have all year round). Made with only SIX ingredients! Drippy peanut butter, chocolate chips, almond flour, coconut flour, coconut oil, and some maple syrup for good measure. You will want to make and eat these peanut butter eggs all the time because they are too good!
I grew up eating Reese’s as a kid, and they were always my favourite candy. The mix of chocolate and peanut butter is just the perfect mix. It’s so creamy, smooth, and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. So naturally I had to recreate their holiday-themed chocolate peanut butter eggs – but made it vegan and slightly better for you. The result? A delicious healthy Reese’s peanut butter egg you can make with just 6 easy ingredients in one hour, which is mostly the time your peanut butter eggs will spend in the freezer so they can be a delicious treat for you to enjoy.
Ingredients needed to make your healthy peanut butter eggs
- Natural Smooth Peanut Butter. The star of the show. This is the main filling for your peanut butter eggs.
- Maple Syrup. To give the peanut butter filling a sweet and salty flavour.
- Almond Flour + Coconut Flour. Adding this to the peanut butter & maple syrup is what makes you capable of forming your dough into eggs!
- Chocolate. For the delicious chocolate “egg shell”.
- Coconut Oil. To add with the chocolate while you melt it. This ensures that the chocolate will be smooth while it melts.
Tips on making the perfect Reese’s peanut butter eggs
- Freeze peanut butter filling for at least 30 minutes before dipping in melted chocolate. The chocolate will be warm, and it will soften the peanut butter filling. This will make it hard to dip in chocolate while keeping the egg shape.
- Make your eggs thick in height, a least 1/2 inch thick. This will give you a delicious peanut butter-filled bite of your healthy peanut butter eggs!
- Drizzle extra chocolate over the chocolate coated eggs for a cute and easy design. Adding the extra chocolate drizzled on top of the chocolate coating gives the healthy peanut butter eggs a fancier look, with added chocolate flavour. Who could say no to that?
- Top with some flaky salt. This will bring out the sweetness in the chocolate and give a perfect sweet and salty flavour.
How to store your peanut butter eggs
Place your peanut butter eggs in an airtight container in the freezer. They will last 1-2 months. You can also place them in the fridge for up to one week, but they will be more melted than if they are kept in the freezer.
