Love peanut butter eggs? This version of peanut butter eggs is packed with protein but you’d never know it because it tasted just as good as the real thing! Super easy to whip up they are a great springtime or anytime dessert!
Happy almost Friday. Does anyone else feel like Thursdays are a relief, it’s the last day of grinding during the week right? I mean don’t get me wrong I work a lot, sometimes long hours on Fridays, but the feel of it is so much more relaxed.
The weekends are time to make peanut butter protein eggs right? I actually had to make this recipe TWICE because the first batch got devoured so quickly. I’m glad I did make a second batch because I learned a valuable lesson in the second batch.
I learned that using drippy natural peanut butter drastically changes this recipe. See the first time I used Peanut Butter & Co smooth peanut butter I got on sale, 2 for 5 at Sprouts one weekend.
It’s a shelf-stable peanut butter that uses palm oil to stabilize it, which I’m totally cool with sometimes. However, the second time around I used a natural peanut butter that required a ton of stirring.
It was much more drippy than the first version I made. It required a TON more protein powder to make the no-bake dough. That left it tasting a little two protein powdery if you catch my drift.
Although they still tasted good, they didn’t taste as good as the original. So for this recipe, I suggest using a shelf stable variety (without any hydrogenated oils) or if you must follow my notes to modify the recipe using a natural peanut butter.
That way you get a rick creamy bite of peanut butter chocolate heaven in every bite, not a mouth full of protein powder, you feel me?
I feel like every weekend at the end of the week I should share some exciting weekend plans I have. But, I usually don’t have any except workout, relax, and hang out with the hubby doing whatever we feel like.
This weekend I want to drag him to a nursery in Glendale in search of an avocado tree that will grow in Arizona. I got obsessed watching this guys video on YouTube, the Vegan Athlete, who basically has grown a whole garden in his backyard in Phoenix!
The man has a MANGO tree and an avocado tree, I think that’s NUTS! I want that! But the truth is, I’m a terrible gardener and I don’t enjoy trashing dead plants that I killed. Maybe I should start with a compost or something? Or go back to eating peanut butter protein eggs until I figure it out? What do you think? Are you a good gardner, do you have tips for me?
Think it over while you eat one of these delicious eggs. My hubby actually said the first batch (aka without the mouth full of protein powder) was better than the original. I mean, you don’t get much better than better than the original right????? Exactly, let me know if you try them!

No Bake Peanut Butter Protein Eggs
- Mix peanut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla protein powder until soft dough forms that you could roll into balls. Roll 10 balls and then flatten and form into egg shapes.
- Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave. (Microwave for 10-30 seconds, stir, and repeat until fully melted.)
- Dip each egg in the chocolate, covering egg completely and place on parchment or wax paper in a pan.
- Refrigerate for one hour until chocolate hardens then serve!
- I found this recipe works best with no stir peanut butter like peanut butter and co.
- If you use natural peanut butter you will need to add coconut flour to the recipe - 1 tablespoon at a time until it becomes dough. Note, this will change the nutrition facts of the recipe.
