It’s that time of year when we make copycat Reese’s eggs! I made my own version because I am allergic to peanuts and felt left out when all of my friends and family eat them. Plus, I thought I could make a version that was a little healthier with a few ingredient swaps. It doesn't mean you can/should eat 10 at a time, but you'll feel better about eating this version. All you need is a few ingredients, a little time, and you’ll enjoy these treats in a flash.
And to make these treats even more blood sugar friendly, have some protein or fiber to go along with em 🤗
If you like a smoother texture, then feel free to swap out the Nuttzo for your preferred nut butter. I enjoy the crunchy texture and this Nuttzo has a tad more fiber in it. Plus it's made without added sugar.
The collagen peptides are also optional, but I usually add them as a fun boost. Collagen supports your hair, skin, and nails and may support digestion too. The powder is flavorless, so no worries there.
DIY Chocolate Eggs:
Makes 10-12 eggs
1/2 c @eatnuttzo crunchy power fuel
2 Tbsp @bobsredmill almond flour
2 scoops @ancientnutrition collagen peptides (optional, code: NATURALLYSWEETRD20)
1/2 Tbsp @wedderspoonofficial manuka honey 🍯 (code: SWEETRD)
2/3 c @hukitchen chocolate gems (or chocolate chips)
1 tsp coconut 🥥 oil
1. Combine all filling ingredients in a bowl and mix until a dough forms.
2.Roll pieces of dough into a ball and form into an egg shape. Place in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, combine chocolate with coconut oil and microwave for 30 second intervals. Stir at each interval until chocolate is completely melted.
4. Dip each egg in the chocolate mixture and then replace in the freezer until they harden.
5. Serve from frozen or store them in an airtight container in the fridge (if they last that long 😉).
