One thing that I miss around Easter time are those Reese’s Peanut Butter eggs. But being on Keto that is a big no no so to help that craving I decided to make my own. It was definitely easier than I thought it would be and tastes similar to the real thing. 

 

I used a large egg cookie cutter to cut out the shapes but there are plenty of others sizes of egg cookie cutters to choose from if you don’t want it that big. I usually only eat half of a large one when I make them. You could also try and use a silicone egg shape mold if you don’t have an egg cookie cutter on hand. 

For this recipe I used Lakanto Monkfruit powdered sweetener, which is keto friendly. If you’re wanting to try the Lakanto Monkfruit Powdered Sweetener or any other Lakanto products visit them here and enter the code KETO at checkout for a discount.

How to Make Keto Peanut Butter Eggs

2 cups Lakanto Powered Sweetener
1 cup J.M. Smucker’s all natural peanut butter
1/4 melted butter (I like to use the Kerrygold stick butter)

Pinch of salt

Egg cookie cutter

Directions

In a large mixing bowl combine melted butter, peanut butter, powdered sweetener, vanilla extract and salt and mix together with a hand mixer.

Lay a piece of parchment paper down, add the peanut butter mix on the top of it and then lay another piece of parchment paper on top. Roll out until it’s thin enough but not too thin covering the size of the parchment paper. (If there is too much dough you may need to separate it in half and repeat the steps of rolling it out.)

Place on a baking sheet keeping both pieces of parchment paper on and freeze for 15 minutes. 

how-to-cut-out-egg-shapes

Take out of freezer and remove from baking sheet. Remove the top piece of parchment paper and cut out your shapes. Using the parchment paper you just removed place it down on the baking sheet and add your shapes to it and put back in the freezer for 30 minutes.

Melt the Lily’s baking chips in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds at a time until melted. Take the peanut butter egg shapes out of the freezer. Carefully dunk each one in the melted chocolate making sure each side is covered. Place back on the parchment paper to harden. (could also freeze them again for a few minutes to harden faster)

Enjoy!
