Don’t we all love that famous Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg? Seems harmless enough…chocolate, peanut butter…they aren’t the worst things in the world for you right? Wellllll, except that most store-bought candy is loaded with filler ingredients and preservatives that promote a toxic environment in our bodies. So here’s a way to make this store-bought fave at home, in just a few easy steps with some basic ingredients you might already have in your kitchen.
ingredients for eggs:
- 1 cup all-natural peanut butter (you can use almond butter if you prefer)
- 1 tbsp. non-GMO cornstarch
- 3/4 cup coconut flour
- 2 tbsp. pure maple syrup (not Aunt Jemima’s)
ingredients for coating:
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips (I like the Enjoy Life brand because they are dairy, nut, and soy free)
- 2 tsp. coconut oil
- OPTIONAL: Himalayan Sea Salt to sprinkle on top
- Mix all ingredients for eggs in a large bowl until dough-like
- Form into egg shape with hands and place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper or a silpat.
- Place baking sheet into freezer for eggs to set.
- While eggs set, heat chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small pan over low heat until melted.
- Remove eggs from freezer and coat, on at a time, in melted chocolate.
- Return to baking sheet after coated.
- OPTIONAL: sprinkle Himalayan sea salt over top of coated eggs
- Return baking sheet to freezer and allow to set for 15 minutes.
