What ingredients do I need to make these peanut butter eggs?

To make these peanut butter eggs you’ll need:

  • natural peanut butter (I use homemade)
  • pure maple syrup or raw honey
  • coconut flour
  • salt
  • dark or semi-sweet chocolate (I use dairy free and refined sugar free)
  • coconut oil (optional, or other neutral oil)
Can I use another nut/seed butter?

Absolutely! If you’re allergic to peanut butter or you don’t prefer to use it, feel free to use almond butter, cashew butter, or sunflower seed butter!

I like to store the peanut butter eggs in the fridge and recommend you do the same! They should last for up to 5 days in a sealed container (though I doubt they will be around that long!).

Healthier Peanut Butter Eggs

Servings 8 eggs
Prep Time 30 minutes
Chill Time 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


For the Peanut Butter Filling

  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (I use homemade)
  • 2 TBS maple syrup or raw honey
  • 2 TBS coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt (if using unsalted peanut butter)

For the Chocolate Coating

  • 1/2 cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips (I use dairy free and refined sugar free)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil (optional, or other neutral oil)


  • Add the peanut butter, sweetener, coconut flour, and salt to a medium sized dish and mix well. The mixture should be firm and hold together . If it's too runny, add more coconut flour. If it's too stiff, add more peanut butter or sweetener.
  • Divide the mixture into 8 evenly sized balls. Shape each ball into an egg shape and place on a tray lined with parchment paper then place in the freezer for 15-30 minutes to harden.
  • Once the peanut butter eggs have hardened, melt the chocolate chips and oil together (in the microwave or on the stovetop using the double boiler method). The coconut oil is optional but it helps the chocolate to melt smoothly and evenly coat the peanut butter eggs.
  • Coat each peanut butter egg in the melted chocolate then return to the lined tray. I like to drizzle any remaining melted chocolate on top of the peanut butter eggs then sprinkle them lightly with flakey sea salt!
  • Once of all the peanut butter eggs have been coated with chocolate, place them in the freezer for another 15 minutes, until the chocolate is hardened. Enjoy straight from the freezer or store in the fridge until serving.
