After seeing so much Easter candy in the stores, I knew I had to create some protein versions for you. And with the ingredients I received from the Vitamin Shoppe, it was easy! Ditch the artificial sugary stuff, and make yourself some Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Eggs!
As you may have realized, I like to keep my recipes as simple as possible. With simple recipes, I have no excuse for ever eating poorly! The filling for these Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Eggs is made from natural peanut butter, Warrior Blend protein powder, and a little water. Simple as that! And the coating is a 3-ingredient chocolate made from coconut oil, cacao powder, and stevia. A delicious combination!
There’s no baking involved here, so it’s a quick recipe, too. After mixing the filling ingredients and forming egg-shaped mounds, mix up the chocolate coating and give the eggs a double dip. A few minutes in the freezer, and they’re set!
The recipe happens to be vegan, and can be made raw vegan by substituting a raw sweetener for the stevia (and using a raw peanut butter). The drizzle shown in the photos is my Peanut Butter Protein Frosting, which has whey protein (and was not included in the macros). About half the frosting recipe would be enough drizzle for the six Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Eggs here. For a vegan drizzle, I would use natural peanut butter (adding some coconut oil, if needed, to thin it out).
With these sugar-free Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Eggs, you can skip the store-bought Easter candy and still feel like you are indulging! Give them a try!
A note about substitutions: If you use whey protein in place of the Warrior Blend protein, you'll need less water and you'll want to freeze them a little longer (~15 minutes) before dipping in the chocolate coating. You can use cocoa powder in place of the cacao powder. You can also substitute other natural sweeteners in place of the stevia.
