Enjoy all the delicious flavor of Easter candy but with a much healthier twist, thanks to these healthy no bake cookie dough chocolate covered eggs! These healthy cookie dough 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!
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!
Make these healthy No Bake Cookie Dough Chocolate Covered Eggs and enjoy all things candy eggs 364 days a year.
The other day is your birthday and you should NOT be eating these then.
Healthy No Bake Cookie Dough Chocolate Covered Eggs
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
- Dairy free/sugar free/dark chocolate of choice
- sea salt optional
- 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!
** 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!

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!
I use protein powder to make a thick, pudding like dessert.
I use protein powder for shakes and smoothies.
I usually drink protein powder as an easy breakfast.
These look tasty, I’m excited to try them.
My favorite way to use protein powder is in smoothies.
would whey protein powder work?
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!
ummm these look amazing and you formed the eggs so well LOL is that a weird compliment? I’m so bad at forming eggs when I make easter desserts lmao. Can’t wait to try these!!
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.
I use protein powder to make protein bread and protein cheesecake, both are SOOOO amazing and taste decadent!
protein powder in smoothies or oatmeal for sure!
I will be making these ASAP!
Smoothie bowls forever!
I use protein powder for my husband’s overnight oats.
I look forward to your innovative recipes!
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.
