5 Ingredient Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs (V, GF): a 5-ingredient, no bake recipe for decadent chocolate peanut butter eggs that taste like Reese’s. Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free.
Happy Easter!!! Okay, it’s a tad bit early to be wishing you a Happy Easter, but since the official BB Easter recipe post is all ready to go, why not? I mean, there’s peanut butter, there’s chocolate, there’s even colorful Easter grass thingies floating all over the house (and totally some in my hair, for some unknown reason).
There’s even 5 Ingredient Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs. Woot woot!
Do you usually have big plans for Easter? Tell me that your plans include at least four forms of glitter, sprinkles, highly-elaborate treasure hunts and, hopefully, quality time with the ones you love.
This year, Erik and I are keeping it low-key and being the homebodies we need to finally embrace being in our thirties. Speaking of thirties, guess who just turned THIRTY?? Yep, Erik! So not only is it a Happy Easter, it’s also a Happy Birthday to my best friend, my partner, and my super amazing, never complains (okay fine, sometimes he does, it’s only natural), crazy supportive and newly-minted 30-year-old love of my life.
I’m serious, I totally see him standing taller and speaking more confidently due to the whole being 30 thing. Plus, all jokes aside, he’s been on an amazing journey of becoming a better person, a stronger one, and an even kinder one. Like that’s even possible.
We met when we were both in our early twenties and it’s been such a crazy ride ever since. One crucial thing I’ve learned about Erik: if you had to pick someone to have in your corner, it would be that big lug right there.
He’ll always have your back, he’ll always laugh at your jokes even when they’re not funny (in some cases, harder when they’re really not funny), he’ll hold you tight when you’re for-realsies ugly-crying about something silly to others but major to you, and he’ll always be up for playing all the silly 90s trivia games in the middle of the night to get your mind off of whatever you’re trying so hard not to lose sleep over.
He’ll even believe in you and support you, no matter how crazy your dreams are.
What more could anyone ask for? <3
Happy birthday (and Happy Easter, bc why not) Erik. To the coolest, bestest partner in crime. Like, ever.
While you think of all the 90s trivia questions that we should so obviously have in our quiz repertoire and totally debate my use of the word “bestest,” let’s talk Easter!
First of all, who LOVES to get crafty for Easter? Are you the person with all of the handmade, multi-color woven baskets? The gal with the paint bucket-sized tubs of glitter? Or, maybe you’re the person with THE most elaborate egg treasure hunt planned out?
As I eagerly await to hear about all of your festive craftiness, let me tell you about my 5 Ingredient Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs. They’re:
- made with just 5 simple ingredients, in case ya weren’t listening.
- egg-free, which may come as a shock to some… 😉
- tasty like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups… or perhaps those amazingly ginormous Easter eggs of their’s
- the perfect amount of chocolate and peanut butter
- delightfully no bake
- gluten free, vegan, dairy-free
- super fun to make, esp for the crafty folk
- even more fun to decorate, of course
- plant-based and allergy-friendly
- basically happy birthday eggs too, because: Erik! ????

- ¾ cup natural, unsalted creamy peanut butter
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup
- ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons coconut flour
- ½ cup vegan chocolate chips
- ¼ teaspoon coconut oil
- 1-2 tablespoons vegan chocolate chips
- Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Clear some space in the freezer for this sheet. Set aside at room temperature.
- Make the peanut butter eggs: In a medium bowl, add peanut butter, maple syrup and coconut flour. Whisk as long as you can. When the mixture gets harder to stir, use a rubber spatula to fold until well incorporated and thickened. Cover bowl and freeze for 15-20 minutes.
- Remove from freezer. Using a 1-tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop and drop peanut butter balls onto the prepared baking sheet, spaced evenly apart. Roll balls in your hand just until shiny and smooth. Drop onto the sheet. Using your fingers, mold each ball into the shape of an egg. Use a rubber spatula to flatten eggs to desired thickness—keep the eggs thick enough to dip in chocolate later.
- Transfer back to the freezer to chill for 15-20 minutes, until hardened. About 5 minutes before the eggs are done freezing, it’s time to make the chocolate dip.
- Make the chocolate dip: Use the double boiler method or the following. Add Chocolate Dip ingredients to a medium, microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 20-second increments until chocolate is softened and melted. Stir in between heating, until smooth.
- Remove peanut butter eggs from freezer. Dip the bottom of one egg into the bowl of melted chocolate, scraping off excess. Place back onto the prepared baking sheet. Reshape as needed--the eggs will be a bit soft. Repeat until all eggs are dipped. There should be leftover melted chocolate.
- Make the drizzle: Add Chocolate Drizzle ingredients to your leftover bowl of melted chocolate. Heat in 20-second increments until softened and melted. Stir until smooth. Spoon melted chocolate into a small zip bag and trim off a tiny corner. Pipe chocolate in any pattern across the top of each egg.
- Freeze for 10-15 minutes. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.
- Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks.
- Freezing instructions: store in an airtight container in the freezer for 1-2 months. Allow to thaw at room temperature for 10-20 minutes before enjoying.
- Homemade Candy: Coconut Chocolate Truffles, Peppermint Crunch Bars, Paleo Almond Joy, Paleo Almond Butter Cups.
- Peanut Butter Love recipes: no bake chocolate pb bars, peanut butter chocolate chip oatmeal breakfast bars, peanut butter ice cream smoothie.
- Nutritional Info calculated based on 21 servings, with 1 tablespoon chocolate chips for drizzling.
