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?

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.



Peanut Butter Eggs

  • ¾ cup natural, unsalted creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons coconut flour

Chocolate Dip

  • ½ cup vegan chocolate chips
  • ¼ teaspoon coconut oil

Chocolate Drizzle Decoration

  • 12 tablespoons vegan chocolate chips


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Clear some space in the freezer for this sheet. Set aside at room temperature.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Freeze for 10-15 minutes. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.

  1. Aww – such a sweet tribute to Erik – Happy Birthday to your person, Demeter! He sounds like such a gem – just like you!
    Now I wish I could say I was that gal with the handmade, multi-color woven baskets but am not – though I have been know to rock (and drop) a tub of glitter and throw a crazy egg hunt – which am hoping raises my coolness factor! 🙂
    BTW – it’s never to early for Easter Candy/ Easter recipes – especially when it’s as GORGEOUS as these are! Lady, your decorating skills are en point! I cannot choose my favorite Easter candy – but I will just say anything with chocolate and PB has my heart! Happy Wednesday to ya and Happy Birthday to your Erik!

    1. Erik said to thank you so much Shashi! 🙂 Lol on dropping that bucket–I can’t say I haven’t been there before… . If your coolness factor went up any higher, we’d all be in trouble! 😉 Hope you have an awesome weekend, my friend. 🙂

  2. They look amazing! I need to try them for my daughter. She recently has had to stop eating gluten and would love to know that she can still enjoy delicious treats like these!

    1. Thanks Melanie! 🙂 I hope you two get to make them together–they’re such a fun family activity! It would be wonderful to hear about her continuing to enjoy the treats she loves. xo

  3. You and Erik are just super duper cute, and Happy Birthday to him! We don’t really have anything we do around Easter time, only give each other chocolate eggs LOL these peanut butter eggs look amazing to give though, or to eat all to myself 😉 Pinning and sharing, of course! xo

    1. Aw, thanks Marsha! 🙂 Giving each other chocolate eggs sound awesome! YUM! Thanks for pinning and sharing, Marsha. 🙂 xo

  4. Fun way to celebrate Easter! I have to admit at Easter time I love jelly beans, but it’s hard to find good ones that are vegan. Any chance you want to try and make jelly beans??? My mom used to give us Lemon Heads, which I have a soft spot for, as she thought they looked like eggs!

    1. Hi Heidi! Thank you! It’s seriously crazy hard to find vegan jelly beans.. The toughest thing about making jelly beans is the high sugar content… if I ever figure out a way to make them with less sugar, I’ll give it a go! In the meantime, have a Happy Easter! 🙂 Your mom sounds awesome. 🙂

  5. Have to make these! I’m tired of not getting treats at Easter! What brand of peanut butter did you use for these drool-worthy vegan Easter eggs?

    1. Hi Trish! You deserve all the treats for Easter! 🙂 I like to use a few different brands, depending on what I have lying around: Crazy Richard’s, Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods’ 365 brand. Hope you love these!

  6. Bahahaha that little freaked out face after the “fruit” option is totally cracking me up for some reason. Like more than it should. Anyways THE EGGS!!! I didn’t expect to see them so soon but I am glad you didn’t make me wait because that was going to be hard. Once you mention peanut butter and decorative squiggles I get very impatient. They are gorgeous my squiggle-piping pro of a friend!! Even more gorgeous then my brain had imagined. And I love that you put the pb on the outside–so unexpected. Coconut flour, you have your moments. And this is most definitely one of them. Aww happy birthday to the ever-so-aweose Erik!! A very sweet post, made me silly giant smile❤️❤️ Peanut butter eggs happen to be my fave easter candy so DONE. Love ya! xo

    1. Lolol. I’m just playin’! As the official fruit lover in my life, you’re not mad, right?? 😉 . Yes, I had this recipe and just COULD not wait! I thought this PB + chocolate squiggle delight might be right up your alley! 😉 Thank you so much! You and I are gonna conquer coconut flour like woah! Erik thanks you. <3 <3 Love ya! xoxo

  7. Awwwwwwwww HAPPY birthday to mah besties man! I can say ‘man’ now since he is 30, and 30, is by definition, the year you enter man-hood (or woman-hood). As someone who is a couple (fine a few) years into her 30’s… WELCOME to the club, E! 30 is the new 20 or whatever. 😉 You two are THE cutest ever and I know E is just as lucky to have you, as you are to have him. Thanks for giving me all the feels with this post, mi-lady. Monday’s need feel good vibrations. And chocolate peanut butter eggs… even if it’s not yet Easter. 😉 Candy eggs are like a REQUIREMENT for Easter, so I’m loving that you DIY’ed them! AND with only 5 ingredients! SO fancy and SO clever, D! I’m not sure what the heck Boy and I are doing for Easter, but I’m 99.9872% sure it will be low key. And 101% sure it will include these eggs. Pinned of course! Cheers, sweets! XOXOXO mwah!

    1. D’awwwwwww! Erik says thank you! LOL. Yep, he is totally a man now! Don’t worry, I’m older than him!. 30 is for realsies the now 20. And when we’re 40, we have to say that that’s the new 20. Haha. Monday’s need all the help they can get. Low-key Easter sounds wonderful. As long as you get some much deserved rest. Love ya! xoxo

  8. I’ll gladly take an early Easter treat after seeing these beauties! How fun are these?! The reese’s eggs are my FAVORITE! I love how big and puffy and filled with pb they are, but having a homemade version sounds even better. I can’t believe this is just five ingredients! I love your presentation, too. I am SO not crafty at all so I will just live vicariously through you! 🙂 Pinned of course! Happy Monday to you!

    1. Oh yeah! Time to have some Easter fun! 🙂 The homemade version is so fun to make! Thank you for your sweet words & for pinning. Happy Monday, Gayle! xo
