Ingredients

Instructions

  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. Place another piece of parchment paper onto a pastry board or cutting board. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine peanut butter and maple syrup. Add the almond flour and stir to combine. Squeeze mixture with your hands to get a smooth dough.
  • Transfer peanut butter mixture onto parchment-lined pastry board. Place another piece of parchment paper on top and roll out to a ½ inch thickness. Use a 3-inch egg shaped cookie cutter to cut egg shapes.
  • Place egg cutouts onto prepared baking sheet. Once all the peanut butter mixture has been used, place baking sheet in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  • When peanut butter eggs are ready, place the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Melt chocolate in the microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring after each, until chocolate chips are almost completely melted. Stir until completely melted. Add vanilla extract and stir to combine.
  • Using a fork, dip peanut butter eggs in melted chocolate to coat. Tap fork to get rid of excess chocolate and transfer back to baking sheet. Repeat until all eggs are coated.
  • Place baking sheet in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or until chocolate is set.
