Cookie Dough Eggs

Easter’s coming!  You know what that means…

  • Colorful Plastic Eggs Everywhere
  • Easter Egg Hunts
  • Chocolate Bunnies
  • and A Whole Lot of Festive Candy!!!
Usually when it comes to Easter sweets, my absolute favorite is a big, fat chocolate bunny, but this year I decided to try my hand at creating a homemade treat.  And if there’s one thing that beats pure chocolate in my book it’s cookie dough… with chocolate chips!

These, my friends, are Cookie Dough Eggs.
Imagine a big scoop of raw chocolate chip cookie dough shaped as an egg.  Think about what it would be like to shovel it into your mouth.  Now, imagine that it’s all totally guilt-free.

Ok, you can stop imagining now… Because these Cookie Dough Eggs are real!

Yes, it’s true.  Those delicious treats you see above are big scoops of healthy cookie dough, polka dotted with chocolate chips, just begging to enter your mouth.  And a chocolate drizzel never hurts, either.

Did I mention they only take 5 minutes to make?  Tell me, what have you got to lose?

Cookie Dough Eggs

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup chickpeas
  • 3 prunes (dates could be a possible substitution)
  • 2 tbsp almond butter (another nut butter could work as well)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • optional: more chocolate, to melt and drizzle eggs with
Place oats in a food processor and process until broken into small pieces.  Add all remaining ingredients except chocolate chips and process again until all ingredients have benn well incorporated (no chickpea clumps!).  Mixture will look crumbly, but should hold together when you try to shape it.  Add chocolate chips and process one last time until chips are a bit broken up.  From mixture into egg shapes.  If desired, melt down some more chocolate and drizzle the eggs with it.  Recipe makes roughly 10 eggs, depending on size.

Enjoy!

    Looks amazing! I think for this Easter I’ll be special requesting a basket of fruit, but maybe these too? 😉 I’m off of added sugars so this looks divine 🙂

    Do the chickpeas need to be soft or hard?

      They should be cooked, so soft. Canned is what I use.

    Could you keep them in the freezer (to reduce temptation to finish them all in one go)?!

      I haven’t tried it, buy I suspect you could. Might have to thaw them a bit before eating, though.

      (That is a completely legitimate worry, by the way.)
