Not only do you guys get this insanely delicious (and easy!) recipe today, I’m also announcing a delicious MONTHLY giveaway happening on TBMW for 2016/2017!

Those who often make any of my recipes which call for a vegan protein powder would know that I always recommend Growing Naturals Brown Rice protein powder. I’ve been a long term user of both the chocolate and vanilla protein powders! 

Back when I was in Australia, I’d often order their tubs online and always have them on hand. After trying out a plethora of vegan protein powders, I was impressed with the Growing Naturals range. Unlike many on the market, their protein powder did NOT resemble a sand pit and was absolutely perfect for using in recipes! In fact, their vanilla protein powder was my ‘go-to’ in this vanilla cake batter oatmeal and this original cake batter oatmeal

Not only that, but we’re going to do something fun here too. Each month, TWO readers will each win a protein prize pack from Growing Naturals, along with a batch of whichever recipe I make using it! Not only that- I’ll also be throwing in the ingredients I used to make it so you too can recreate it!

When it comes to Easter, I’m a huge fan…of the day after the main event(s). The discounted candy, eggs, bunnies and LINDT GOLD BUNNIES make my (fat) heart go absolutely GAGA. Seriously, my sister and I would go at 7am to the supermarket, grinning like Cheshire cats over our (potential) goodies. I’d always hunt down the Turkish Delight eggs and my sister would get the honeycomb ones. We’d both tackle the Lindt varieties, and often leave with enough loot to last us until the forthcoming year. 

This year, seeing as I’m not back in Australia grinning like a Cheshire cat with Niki over our post-Easter loot, I thought I’d share a delicious recipe for DIY Easter Eggs which require no baking and are accidentally healthy! I wanted something fun in the centre (let’s not discuss hollow eggs…..fail whale), so opted for a cookie dough twist. Once formed into an egg shape, I gave them a chocolate coating and voila- Healthy No Bake cookie Dough Chocolate Covered eggs

These Healthy No Bake Cookie Dough Chocolate Covered Eggs may look fancy-schmancy but trust me- They are SO easy to whip and ridiculously healthy too, you could pretty much eat them any time of the day too! The centre ‘cookie dough’ portion is packed with protein, fiber and healthy fats and the exterior is simply melted dairy free chocolate or sugar free chocolate (I’ve only tried this brand over here). Although this may be a little more time consuming that my usual no-bake recipes, the final process is worth it- Cracking the delicious, chocolate exterior into a fudgy cookie dough centre = BLISS! These healthy treats are also suitable for those following a vegan, gluten free, dairy free, sugar free AND paleo lifestyle! 

HACK! Impatient like I am? That’s a-ok! Line a large plate with baking paper and place them in the freezer for 10 minutes. While it’s ‘freezing’, start prepping your melted chocolate and once it’s done, remove and start the dipping!

Cookie Dough Centre
  1. 3/4 cup coconut flour (Can sub for gluten free oats/oat flour- See notes below)*
  2. 3 scoop Growing Naturals vanilla protein powder** (Omit for paleo option)
  3. pinch sea salt
  4. 1/3 cup nut butter of choice (I used smooth cashew butter but peanut/almond works great!)
  5. 3 T maple syrup (optional)
  6. 1/4 cup + dairy free milk of choice***
  7. Handful of dairy free chocolate chips (optional)
Chocolate coating
  1. Dairy free/sugar free/dark chocolate of choice

Instructions
  1. Line a large plate with baking paper and set aside.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix well.
  3. Melt your nut butter and maple syrup and pour into the dry mixture. Mix until a crumbly texture remains. If the mixture is completely cool, add the chocolate chips.
  4. Using a tablespoon at a time, add the dairy free milk of choice until a VERY thick batter is formed. Form into egg shaped bites and place on lined plate. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, or until firm.
  5. Once firm, melt your chocolate of choice and using two spoons, dip each egg into the mixture until fully coated and place back on the lined plate. Sprinkle with sea salt and allow to firm up before enjoying!
Notes
  1. * Can sub for oat flour, oats or almond flour- However, you'll need to reduce dairy free milk considerably.
  2. ** For paleo option, add an extra 2 tablespoons of monk fruit or coconut palm sugar

  1. Love this! Easter candy is a serious weakness and this, this is AMAZING! Love a healthier take on sweets. Then I can eat more 😉 Protein pow pow for the win here!

  2. Today I can definitely leave you a love comment for these eater eggs. Cookie dough is always a winner in my book. Chocolate covered even better! I love that you sprinkled them with sea salt.

    My post easter prey is definitely the Milka Spoon eggs. Sometime I need to tell you the story when I went to 4 supermarkets on one day to get as many of them as possible. Okay maybe that already was the whole story 😛

  3. Look at you being all generous with your giveaways! You sure do know a way to a woman’s heart 😉
    PS. I can’t believe its already almost Easter. I hate when it comes so early! Though I do like that it means I can eat Jelly Beans to my hearts content without judgement….

  4. I love to add protein powder in pancakes and in bars/bites for a protein packed snack! I’m so excited about the monthly giveaways! That’s such a great idea. I’m always drooling over every one of your recipes so I just hope I win some time!

  5. Yum! I don’t use a lot of protein powder per say, but I love peanut flour and generally use that in any recipe calling for “protein powder of choice.” I put that in smoothies, oatmeal, and sometimes mix it in with maple syrup, vanilla, and cheerios and throw it in the freezer– it tastes like my mom’s “butterscotch haystack” cookies from my childhood, minus the marshmallows and chow mein noodles!

  6. My favourite way to use protein powder is in a good ol’ fashioned smoothie. Also, my sister has started making protein custard, which is basically magical unicorn food, so that might become a new favourite.

  7. You mean I have the chance of trying one of Arman’s originals by the Arman himself?! Random generator, please pick me.
    I am boring and pretty much just use protein powder in smoothie. There are so many types out there, so I am always nervous I’d use one that didn’t work.

  8. Oh my goodness these look so delicious! I use protein powder in a lot of baking recipes, because I have the world’s BIGGEST sweet tooth, but also need to stay skinny;)

  9. I use plant based protein powder every single day in some way or another… I go through it so quickly. My favorite breakfast combo lately has been 2 scoops protein (currently going through a rice/pea/hemp blend), 2 tablespoons ground flax, 1 cup soy milk, and whatever frozen fruit I have on hand. I make it when I first wake up, then let it sit in the fridge while I get ready for work. When I finally get to dig in, it has thickened up into a delicious slop of goodness!!!

  10. I like protein powder in baked goods once in a while. These Easter eggs look yummy — especially with coconut flour, and I have a bag of Lily’s chocolate chips in my fridge.

  11. Chocolate peanut butter Eggs used to be my favorite until i ate too many before practice and during my floor routine haha. I think they put crack in those things. At least your cookie dough version is healthy enough for me to eat before practice without feeling uncomfortable lol. I seriously don’t know how you come up with all of these creative, easy and simple recipes! Is it possible for you to telepathically send some of your ideas over here? 😉

  12. I love mixing protein powder with Greek yogurt to make a sort of 2-ingredient healthy “mousse” as well as mixing it in oatmeal for a protein packed breakfast! Hence why I love your recipes… 🙂

  13. I throw protein powder in practically all my breakfast foods!! Overnight oats, smoothies, pancakes, waffles….it’s such an easy way to get an extra does of protein. I’m an athlete, so the more protein the better 😉
    The day after holidays are always great haha. I just stoked up on some super cheap Valentine’s Day Candy! I got 4 boxes of chocolates for the price of one.
    I’m stoked to try this recipe!! These sounds fabulous! And the perfect on-the-go snack. 😀

  14. Lindt bunnies sound so luxurious but also kinda gory. Like, biting off the head of a bunny and having it’s chocolate guts bleed out all over your face. A wonderful thing for some perhaps.
    Ahh I need to make these for Easter! Reese’s Eggs are my favorite candy ever, but I’m sure these will give those a run for their money.

  15. These look great! My favourite way use protein powder is actually based on your 3 ingredient oatmeal cookies (formed into balls ha ha, not cookies or bars..). I usually use whatever I’ve got on hand but always oats + chocolate protein powder + peanut butter, sometimes also some raisins or mixed nuts. Otherwise I simply make a shake or use it in my oats in the morning 🙂

  16. oh man these look good! Im just getting more into using protein powder, in smoothies and oatmeal for starters but Im ready to get more creative with it!!

  17. I stick mainly with smoothies for my protein powder. I’ve used some brands in the past to try making treats, but they never com out that great.

  18. Goodness, these look amazing. Bonus points for the cute Easter egg theme! I use protein powder pretty much daily, so it is hard to say what my favorite way is. I’d have to go general and say using it to make healthier treats such as this 🙂

  19. These are so cute! Love the option of making something different for Easter!
    For me, I mostly use my protein powder as a shake post workout! Boring I know! But I also love mixing it into yoghurt to make like a chocolate pudding or mixing with eggs and bananas to make pancakes!

  20. Is it a coincidence that I’m using the chocolate pudding casein TOMORROW for a smoothie bowl?? LOL! My fave way of using protein powder are as a way to flavor and thicken my smoothies and make healthy ice cream, as well as mixing it with water to create a frosting! It’s so delicious! I can’t believe that April’s almost coming up! Better get the Easter egg game on!

  21. Wow!! These look great 😀 Easter seems to far away, might need to make them sooner 😉 lol

    Love how you always give us healthy tasty protein packed treats- I used to just use protein powders in drinks or smoothies, but now I love using ’em in your ingenius recipes like cookie dough, cookies, cakes…. <3 Thank you so, so much for all your inspiration ^_^

  22. Pingback: Coffee Talk #4
  23. I’ve just started subscribing to your blog so up until now all I’ve used protein powder for was smoothies. Looking forward to more wonderful ideas! Thanks.

  24. This recipe looks so yummy! I’ve never had protein powder before but if I win, I would use it in smoothies, baked goods, no-bakes, etc. Mainly your recipes 🙂

  25. How do you always make everything look so good?!? I haven’t had any easter eggs yet this year, but I know what I’ll be doing tomorrow, thanks to you!

  26. I finally finished the tub of vanilla protein powder that I hated and am looking for a new brand to try! I love adding a scoop to my oatmeal or greek yogurt for a protein packed breakfast!

  27. Cookie dough eggs are brilliant! I generally add protein powder to my smoothies but I want to start using it more in baking.

  28. I’m way too simple: protein powder (I love the Vega Sport Performance brand) in unsweetened cashew milk. I really should learn how to bake with it!

  29. My favorite way to eat protein powder is protein ice cream, protein powder and bananas in the food processor. These eggs look amazing and I’m looking forward to making them for my family.

  30. Oooh Easter. I love that you use Rice Protein. I have used pea protein & know how to bake with it now, but I’ve yet to learn Rice Protein!! Everything I see you make with it looks killer.

  31. I love protein “ice cream” aka green protein smoothies so thick that I have to eat it out of a bowl like ice cream haha. And I also love making protein spreads for rice cakes. This recipe sounds amazing!

  32. Honestly, some of the best recipes that I’ve used protein powder in have been either your recipes or Amanda’s recipes. It tastes good in mug cakes! And those no bake cookie dough stuffed eggs? WOAH.

  33. I’ve been obsessed with making protein cookies and brownies with protein powder. Its such a low carb substitute for flour and its awesome when your vegan because it just ensures you get extra protein in!

  34. Fav way to use protein powder(usually a raw rice protein powder…aaahhhmazing) is in my morning oatmeal. I’m a vegan lifter, so just that little extra before a workout is great.
