Are Easter eggs keto?
You only need 6 simple ingredients to make homemade sugar-free Easter eggs.
All quantities, ingredients, and instructions are in the recipe card below.
- desiccated/shredded coconut - unsweetened
- coconut oil - melted
- coconut cream - not coconut milk
- powdered sweetener - add more or less to your taste
- vanilla extract - or peppermint or raspberry
- 90% dark chocolate - or sugar-free chocolate chips
I prefer my sugar-free Easter eggs to be vanilla flavoured, but 2 out of my 3 kiddos love peppermint flavour or raspberry. If your family is divided on which flavour they prefer, then split the recipe in half, and flavour one half with peppermint essence and the other half with vanilla - everyone is kept happy.
How to make dairy-free sugar-freeEaster eggs
This easy recipe for healthy Easter eggs is so simple, you can get your kids involved PLUS the Easter eggs are all made in one mixing bowl. Anything for less washing up has to be a bonus.
Step 1: Make the Easter eggs.
Simply mix all the Easter egg ingredients together in a large mixing bowl, then take small spoons and roll as best you can into Easter egg shapes. Place on a lined baking/cookie tray and pop into the freezer for 5 minutes to set and harden.
Step 2: Make the sugar-free chocolate coating
Now for the dairy-free chocolate coating. You have a few options here.
- Lindt 90% - this is my favourite as it is quick and easy and the dairy-free chocolate sets firm and solid.
- Sugar-free chocolate - a reminder to check ingredients carefully. Some sweeteners still raise blood sugars.
- Sugar-free magic shell - the sugar and dairy free coconut oil chocolate magic shell that I make for ice-cream is the perfect coating HOWEVER it must always be refrigerated as coconut oil has such a low melting point.
Top Tip: Another fun way to avoid all the sugar from Easter egg hunts, is to have an Easter hunt for toys and Easter-styled gifts such as stationery, pencils, and erasers.
You can store your sugar-free chocolate Easter eggs in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 1 week or in the freezer for 2 months.
If you leave these delicious homemade Easter eggs out of the fridge for too long they will soften and become tricky to eat. I suggest always storing them in the fridge.
