Vegan & Gluten-free Peanut Butter Chocolate Easter Eggs – Healthier alternative! {No Bake, GF, V}

Easter is almost here and I know what I want in my Easter basket this year! These Vegan and Gluten-free Peanut butter eggs are easy to make and are a healthier alternative to traditional peanut butter cups.

To make them it’s simple. Combine powdered sugar with peanut butter for the base and the chocolate coating is made by mixing chocolate chips (my favorites are these Enjoy life ones) and coconut oil. For materials it’s recommended to use silicone egg molds, I found mine on Amazon here but you can also use cupcake liners in a cupcake baking tray.

Substitutions?

If you don’t like peanut butter you can replace it in equal parts with almond butter, cashew butter or your favorite nut butter. For the chocolate you can use any chips you like, just make sure they are vegan & GF.

Why the coconut oil?

I add coconut oil to the melted chocolate because 1. when the chocolate cools it helps give it that perfect crisp chocolate shell and 2. it helps the melted chocolate thin out so it’s not so thick. I highly recommend this step.

For a decorative touch you can even wrap these up in some cute Easter baggies with other Easter treats or decorate with frosting and candies once peanut butter cups are completely hardened. I recommend if decorating to place in the freezer for an hour before decorating.
