I know I know, chocolate covered peanut butter shaped like an egg at the start of spring – how cliche of me.

But here’s the thing(s)…

  • No matter how many times it’s been done, KILLER COMBO.
  • These are healthier than most.
  • These are delicious-er than most.
  • These are vegan (and paleo if you want them to be!)
  • These are not easier than unwrapping yellow plastic, but are really really easy to make.
  • These will be the only thing you want in your easter basket.

These are Medjool Date Peanut Butter Eggs. Okay maybe still a little cliche, but sometimes cliche is where it’s at

I had 3 requirements for these eggs. They had to 1) be naturally sweetened 2) have the proper peanut butter filling texture 3) be prettier than store-bought.

Natural Delights took care of the first one for us, and if I’m being honest made the whole situation taste better than a Reese’s could ever dream of tasting too. Subtle caramel-y notes mingling amidst the peanut butter and chocolate – now that’s an upgrade! And a healthier spin too since Medjool dates make the filling refined sugar free. Use unsweetened chocolate for coating if you are really dedicated to keeping these 100% fruit-sweetened (the filling is quite sweet, I liked them this way), or use semi sweet or dark chocolate instead. Up to you!

I used their organic pitted dates for this recipe, but any variety will work here. The convenience of already pitted though…YES PLEASE.

Number 2 is all about achieving that not too creamy, almost fluffy, cakey but not dry textural sweet spot. The answer (that is not powdered sugar): coconut flour. Which makes them grain-free too, so if you swap the peanut butter for almond or sunflower seed butter these easter eggs can be paleo.

And finally, decorations. I had some fun here with a mix of hemp seeds, cacao nibs, a few colors of coconut sprinkles (made by blending coconut flakes with pitaya powder or beet powder or matcha or turmeric), chopped pistachios, and toasted coconut. You could use real easter-y sprinkles, crushed freeze dried fruit for natural color, other nuts or seeds, so many possibilities…

Or ignore everything I just said, leave them plain, and get to devouring sooner. I respect that decision, you clearly have your priorities straight.
