Homemade Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs

When it comes to flavored Easter chocolate and candy, I can never turn down Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs. 

As a lover of peanut butter, I favor the eggs to the classic peanut butter cup, purely because of their peanut butter to chocolate ratio.

When I was working on my first cookbook, I developed a fool-proof recipe for homemade peanut butter cups. This was mainly based on the fact that the classic, store-bought peanut butter cups were not dietary friendly. With the Easter season upon us, I thought it was time to do a little tweak on my favorite cookbook recipe. 

Paleo and Gluten-Free Easter Chocolate or even Vegan and Dairy Free Easter eggs are quite hard to find on the market. Impossible? No. However, it wouldn’t be the easiest feat.

What is worse, is that keto Easter eggs are near impossible.

Well, there was only one solution- Get busy in the kitchen!

Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs but with a twist- A healthy, easy and fool-proof version which is homemade.

How to make keto peanut butter Easter Eggs

As mentioned earlier, you literally need just 4 ingredients and 5 minutes to make these homemade keto Easter eggs. 

Homemade Peanut Butter Eggs Ingredients

  • Smooth peanut butter – Drippy and creamy peanut butter with no added sugar. I love the sweet and salty combination, so use salted peanut butter.
  • Keto maple syrupA sugar free maple syrup alternative. It gives sweetness, and helps make the eggs have a creamy filling.
  • Coconut Flour
  • Keto Chocolate Chips I used stevia-sweetened chocolate chips, but any will work. 

Instructions for making homemade peanut butter Easter eggs

Making homemade Keto Peanut Butter eggs follows a simple 4-step process. 

Step 1: Line a large plate or tray with parchment paper.

Step 2: In a large mixing bowl, combine all your ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, and mix well. If the batter is too thick, add some liquid (coconut milk or milk of choice) until a thick batter remains. If the batter is too thin, add extra coconut flour.

Step 3: Slightly wet your hands. Form 20 small balls with it. Shape each ball in a small egg shape and place on the lined plate. Refrigerate.

Step 4: Melt your chocolate chips of choice. Remove chilled peanut butter eggs and using two forks, dip each egg in the melted chocolate until completely covered. Place back on the lined plate/tray and refrigerate until chocolate has firmed up.

How do you coat peanut butter eggs easily

I simply melt my chocolate and use a large soup spoon and a fork. I place the peanut butter egg on the spoon, dip it completely in the melted chocolate before switching to the fork to place onto a lined plate. 

Alternatively, you can use a candy scoop, but I found those to make an absolute mess in the end. 

Peanut Butter Substitutions

Keep this recipe 100% nut-free and peanut-free (and paleo!) with substitutions for peanut butter.

Other nut butter optionsAlmond butter and cashew butter are great peanut-free alternatives. 

Nut-Free optionsSunflower seed butter, tahini or wow butter are great options to keep it nut-free. 

Storing homemade peanut butter eggs 

Peanut butter eggs can keep at room temperature, in a sealed container, for up to 1 week.

Storing them in the refrigerator is best, and these will keep for up to 4 weeks.

These are freezer friendly and will keep well frozen for up to 6 months.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine your coconut flour, smooth peanut butter and sticky sweetener of choice and mix until combined. If you peanut butter is too stiff, melt it slightly beforehand.
  • If the batter is too crumbly, add some liquid of choice, one tablespoon at a time until a thick, formable batter remains. 
  • Line a large plate or tray with parchment paper. Slightly wet your hands and form egg-shaped domes with the peanut butter mixture. Repeat until all the dough is used up and place in the freezer. 
  • Once frozen, melt your chocolate chips of choice. Dip the peanut butter eggs into the chocolate, ensuring they are fully coated. Place back on the parchment paper and refrigerate until firm. 

Notes

* You can use maple syrup, agave nectar, honey and brown rice syrup. To keep it keto friendly, you can use monk fruit sweetener and add coconut milk until thick.
** I use either Dairy Free Paleo Vegan Chocolate Chips or Stevia Sweetened Chocolate Chips, which is keto friendly. 
Healthy Paleo Vegan Peanut Butter Eggs can be kept at room temperature, and are also delicious refrigerated and freezer friendly.

  1. Hi! These look great! Do you think it would be possible to erythritol (powdered or granulated) in place of the monk fruit sweetener, while still being mixed with the coconut milk? Or is the monk fruit sweetener in liquid form? Cheers!

  2. I have only tried peanut butter eggs a few times in my life, but I have loved them every time. While it may be challenging, I want to try making my own. These look too easy and delicious to pass up!
