- Peanut Butter Powder - PB powder is made by removing most of the oil from roasted peanuts and grinding them into a fine powder, resulting in a low-fat, high-protein alternative to traditional peanut butter. You can use brands like PB Fit, or PB2. I used a Sugar Free PB FIt powder for this recipe
- Strawberries (Fresh or Thawed from Frozen) - To sweeten and bind the peanut butter powder filling, we'll incorporate freshly made strawberry puree, which can be easily prepared by blending fresh strawberries in a small blender until smooth and thick.
- Chocolate Chips - you can use any chocolate chips in this recipe. I like this lower sugar, stevia sweetened brand. But you're also welcome to use vegan white chocolate like this one.
- (OPTIONAL DECO) dehydrated strawberries - dehydrated strawberries (like below, from Trader Joes) are a great ingredient for decorating desserts like these peanut butter Easter eggs, as it adds a pop of color, texture, and an addictingly fruity taste.

Step by Step Guide
How to Make PB Fit Strawberry White Chocolate Easter Eggs
blend strawberries until no large chunks remain
Mix 1 cup of peanut butter powder with ½ cup strawberry puree
For a thicker, fudgy peanut butter filling, add 1-2 Tbsp more peanut butter powder. For a smoother, creamier texture, use as is.
Shape into balls, then slightly flatten to get the egg-like shape.
NOTE: This particular dough is slightly sticky, so it helps to cool the batter in the fridge for 1-2 hours before shaping.
For best results, let the peanut butter filling cool in the fridge or freezer until firm enough to coat in chocolate.
Afterward, coat in melted chocolate
Drizzle with more chocolate (optional) and dehydrated strawberries, then wait for the chocolate to set

Recipe Variations and Optional Add Ins:
- You can use other fruit purees instead of strawberry puree. Try applesauce, cooked sweet potato, or pumpkin puree. You can also add more texture and flavor to the filling by adding nuts, seeds or flavorings. For example try:
- If you’re allergic to peanuts you can also use almond butter powder instead here is one brand I like to use. I’ve used it before to make my vegan 2-ingredient almond butter frosting!
- Also, feel free to experiment with natural flavoring / extracts. Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract (I didn't feel like it was essential so I left it out in this recipe), or other flavorings or extracts, such as almond extract
How to Make this Healthier
- Make this even healthier by adding a handful of nuts, seeds and old-fashioned oats to add texture and nutrition. Even better, add a tablespoon of ground flaxseed, hemp seeds, or chia seeds.
- You can also add dehydrated strawberry pieces in the dough before shaping (see below!)

How to Store PB Fit Strawberry White Chocolate Easter Eggs
- Store these Peanut butter easter eggs covered in the fridge for up to 3-5 days.
- You can also freeze these Easter eggs in an air tight container or freezer bag. They’ll be will be good up to three months.
- You can always control the consistency of the filling by adding more or less peanut butter powder. The filling may be a little difficult to handle the creamier they are, but they're more manageable once they're cooled in the fridge.
- Sometimes I like to add a teaspoon or two of coconut oil to the melted chocolate. This helps to thin out the chocolate so that we get an even, glossy coating on the Easter eggs. It also helps to cut down on the amount of chocolate that gets on the eggs, too.
