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!

These healthy no bake cookie dough chocolate covered eggs taste like dessert but are a snack to enjoy anytime- Packed with fiber, protein and healthy fats, this recipe is naturally paleo, vegan, gluten free, sugar free AND dairy free!
Servings: 9

Ingredients  

Cookie Dough Centre

  • 3/4 cup coconut flour Can sub for gluten free oats/oat flour- See notes below*
  • 3 scoop Growing Naturals vanilla protein powder** Omit for paleo option
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/3 cup nut butter of choice I used smooth cashew butter but peanut/almond works great!
  • 3 tablespoon maple syrup optional
  • 1/4 cup + dairy free milk of choice***
  • Handful of dairy free chocolate chips optional

Chocolate coating

  • Dairy free/sugar free/dark chocolate of choice
  • sea salt optional

Instructions 

  • Line a large plate with baking paper and set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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

* Can sub for oat flour, oats or almond flour- However, you'll need to reduce dairy free milk considerably.
** For paleo option, add an extra 2 tablespoons of monk fruit or coconut palm sugar
*** You'll most likely need more than 1/4 cup.
These can be kept at room temperature but are best refrigerated and lightly thawed before enjoying!

  1. Cookie dough eggs sound like a dream – I don’t buy the Cadbury ones anymore but I still get excited to see them on sale lol 🙂

  2. I use protein powered in oatmeal and smoothies — basically ALL THE TIME. (Also: everything about this post looks delicious.)

  3. 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!

  4. I use protein powder in so many different ways. Very hard to pick a favourite. I think maybe waffles would be my top.

  5. 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 😛

  6. 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….
