My favorite Easter (Resurrection Day) treat is Reese's peanut butter eggs! I enjoyed some of the classic then decided to make these Collagen Peanut Butter Eggs as a healthier protein-added version. My Collagen Peanut Butter Eggs are higher in protein, lower in sugar, gluten-free and easily made dairy-free (just use dairy-free chocolate!) I honestly can't taste much difference between these and the classic.

Did you know? Protein is the most satiating macronutrient! When you add protein to baked goods, you make something that keeps you full a lot longer... a treat that acts more as a satisfying snack. On the flip side, the classic is a delicious treat to enjoy in moderation after a real meal.

Collagen Peanut Butter Egg

Collagen recommendations

For this recipe, I used LIV Body Marine Collagen in the unflavored variety. It's virtually flavorless, easy to mix in, and even more satiating that whey protein, studies show. Use my code "NOEXCUSES" to take 20% off all LIV Body products! However, collagen is also lower in leucine, the most important amino acid for muscle growth. This means these eggs might not be the best post-workout treat, especially being higher in fat.

I do not suggest swapping the exact same amount of whey or vegan protein powder in this recipe. I would start with half as much (30 grams) and add more protein, coconut flour or water as needed to get a mixture that's not too runny, sticky, or crumbly. Feel free to use another unflavored collagen powder.

Nut butter recommendations

I recommend a natural creamy peanut butter for this recipe with no added sugar. You can also use natural sunflower seed butter if allergic to peanuts! You can also try almond butter, cashew butter, or tahini - just keep in mind the thicker the nut butter the more water you'll need to add. If it's super drippy and not creamy, either use less or add a little coconut flour to thicken into a soft dough.

Sweetener recommendations

I used Pyure organic stevia blend in this recipe, a sweetener that's twice as sweet as sugar with no aftertaste. However, you can use whatever sweetener you like, such as erythritol, monk fruit sweetener, allulose, or stevia. If using one that measures 1:1 like sugar, you may need a little more to get the desired sweetness. If using concentrated drops, please refer to the brand-specific conversion chart!

Chocolate recommendations

You can easily make these sugar free or dairy free deepening on the type of chocolate you use. For sugar-free, I recommend Lily's dark chocolate or Lily's white chocolate. For dairy free, I would suggest Pascha white chocolate or Hu dark chocolate. The nutrition is for the dairy-free, gluten-free version!

Hope you enjoy these Collagen Peanut Butter Eggs! Leftovers will keep in the fridge at least a week in an airtight container.
