Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

I’ve always loved Easter weekend…and I can’t lie…part of it is because there is candy involved!

Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs are my all-time favorite Easter candy, but they’re definitely a no-no if you’re on the keto diet.

Well, I’m just not ok with that!

So I created my OWN version that’s actually sugar free and keto-friendly! These keto chocolate peanut butter Easter eggs are pretty easy to whip up with just a few simple ingredients!

And with only 4g net carbs per egg, you can totally treat yourself without worrying about the sugar that’s usually in Easter candy!

What You Need to Make Keto Peanut Butter Eggs

For your convenience in re-creating this recipe, we’ve included shop-able ad links to some of the products and supplies used. Read our disclosure policy here.

  • Cookie sheet — Use a non-stick cookie sheet or line with parchment paper or silicone baking mat for easy release.
  • Electric mixer — You can also use a stand mixer
  • Egg Shaped Cookie Cutter — Feel free to use any size cookie cutter! Keep in mind that the size of your eggs will affect the nutrition content. Our cookie cutter was  about 2 1/2 -3″ size.
  • Swerve Confectioner’s Sugar — We use Swerve, which is an erythritol-based sweetener, because they have a powdered sugar variety that is the perfect texture for our fluffy peanut butter filling.
  • Natural peanut butter — Some peanut butters that are labeled “natural” still contain added sugar, so always check the labels! 
  • Butter — Be sure to use unsalted butter!
  • Unsweetened almond milk — You’ll likely only need a little bit of liquid, just enough to keep the dough from crumbling.
  • Sugar-free chocolate chips — Feel free to use your favorite sugar free baking or melting chocolate here.
  • Coconut oil — Helps the chocolate chips melt more smoothly.

The above is a quick glance at the ingredients and tools needed to make our low carb peanut butter eggs. Full ingredient amounts are available in the printable recipe at the bottom of the post.

We used an Easter egg cookie cutter to get perfectly shaped eggs, but you can also form the dough by hand.

Can You Eat Peanut Butter on Keto?

There are differing opinions about whether or not you can eat peanut butter while on the keto diet. Since there is peanut butter (lots of it!) in this recipe, you can probably guess my stance on the matter!

However, if you’re curious about the science behind it, I’ve done a lot of research and I break it all down in this post.

How to Store Homemade Peanut Butter Eggs

Because we made these eggs ourselves, without any preservatives, stabilizers, or anything else – the eggs will be softer at room temperature. Though they’re totally fine to keep in a container on the counter!

My husband always keeps candy in the fridge – that works great for these homemade Reese’s eggs! They’re cool and refreshing and hold their shape well, yet melt in your mouth when it’s time to eat them! Perfect!
