Bananas – Use ripe bananas to add a fudgy texture and natural sweetness to the chocolate truffle centers. Bananas also provide a bunch of nutrients like potassium and Vitamin B6.

Peanut Butter Works so well with the banana and chocolate flavors of these Chocolate eggs whilst providing you with a dose of protein and healthy fats. You can use any nut butter like almond butter, cashew butter, hazelnut butter, or even tahini or sunflower seed butter for a nut-free option.

Cocoa Powder Brings together the banana and peanut butter and creates a luscious, truffle-like flavor and consistency. Cocoa powder also contains antioxidants that help to improve cholesterol and blood sugar levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. It also helps to reduce inflammation and can protect you from diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. You can also use Cacao Powder.

Dark ChocolateFor that deliciously iconic Easter Egg shell. Adds an extra crunch and is truly the cherry on top of the Easter Eggs. Like cocoa powder, dark chocolate is a great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory ingredient; and YES – it is healthy! Try to use refined sugar-free dark chocolate like this one. You can also use milk or white chocolate if you’d prefer.

How to make Chocolate Truffle Easter Eggs

Here is a detailed summary of how to make these Chocolate Eggs, I’ve also included some photos and you can watch the video in the recipe card. At the bottom of this page is a summarized version that can be printed.

Step One:
Add bananas and nut butter to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. You may need to stop and scrape the edges a few times. If the mixture is struggling to blend, add a teaspoon of water or milk until it blends properly.

Step Two:
Add the banana-nut butter mixture to your bowl along with the cocoa powder. Mix with a spatula until just combined. The mixture should be only slightly sticky but not too wet. If the mixture seems too wet, add a bit more cocoa powder.

Step Three:
If the mixture seems too wet to shape, place the bowl in the freezer for a couple of minutes. Shape the mixture into egg shapes by rolling it into a ball and then press it flat and shape it into an oval. I made ten large eggs but you can make smaller and more eggs if you prefer.

Step Four:
Place the eggs on parchment paper on a baking tray and into the freezer.

Step Five:
Now, melt the dark chocolate using a double boiler or in the microwave, avoiding burning by using 30-second increments.

Step Six:
Dip each egg in the melted chocolate and use a fork to hold the egg whilst you scrape off any excess chocolate. Place the chocolate egg back onto the parchment paper and repeat with the rest of the eggs. If you have any leftover melted chocolate, drizzle some on top to create a pretty effect.

Step Seven:
Place the tray into a freezer until set. You can store the eggs in the fridge for a more truffle-like consistency or in the freezer for a solid chocolate bar consistency.

How to Customize your Chocolate Eggs

Here are some ideas for you to customize your Chocolate Eggs and make them your own:

Add a crunch: Mix some chopped nuts like peanuts or walnuts or some chocolate chips into the filling or on top of the eggs for an added crunch.

Add berries: Mix some chopped strawberries or raspberries into the filling for a hint of freshness. You could also add freeze-dried strawberries or raspberries instead of fresh ones.

Add some spice: Add a touch of chili flakes or powder to the filling for a chili chocolate flavor.

Add some salt: Chocolate and salt is ALWAYS a hit. Add a bit of salt to the filling mixture or add some flaky sea salt on top of the eggs.

Add some superfoods: Amp up the nutritional value of your Chocolate Truffle Easter Eggs by adding superfood ingredients like chia seeds, hemp hearts, or flaxseed meal. These ingredients not only add a dose of healthy fats and protein but also contribute to a satisfying texture and crunch. You could also add some maca powder, ashwagandha, or mushroom powder.

Extra flavor: Get creative with flavor infusions to elevate the taste of your Chocolate Truffle Easter Eggs. Add a splash of pure vanilla extract or almond extract to the filling for a hint of warmth and depth. You can also experiment with spices like cinnamon, cardamom, or ginger for a festive touch.

Different Chocolate: While dark chocolate is the classic choice for coating these truffle eggs, don’t be afraid to mix things up with different types of chocolate. Try using milk chocolate or white chocolate for a sweeter flavor profile. If you decide on white chocolate, you can add a touch of food coloring to make colorful Easter eggs. You can also experiment with flavored chocolates like mint chocolate or orange chocolate for a delicious twist.

How to store chocolate eggs

Proper storage ensures that your Healthy Chocolate Truffle Easter Eggs maintain their freshness and texture for as long as possible. Here are some storage instructions for your homemade treats:

Refrigeration – After making the Chocolate Truffle Easter Eggs and allowing them to set in the freezer, you can transfer them to an airtight container and store them in the refrigerator. This will help preserve their creamy texture and prevent them from melting. Simply place a sheet of parchment paper between each layer of eggs to prevent them from sticking together.

Freezing – If you prefer a firmer texture or want to store the eggs for a longer period, you can also freeze them. Once the eggs are fully coated in chocolate and set, transfer them to an airtight container or freezer-safe bag. Make sure to remove as much air as possible before sealing the container or bag to prevent freezer burn. The Chocolate Truffle Easter Eggs can be stored in the freezer for up to 2-3 months.

Thawing – When you’re ready to enjoy your Chocolate Truffle Easter Eggs, simply remove them from the refrigerator or freezer and let them thaw at room temperature for about 10-15 minutes. This will allow the filling to soften slightly without becoming too mushy. Alternatively, you can enjoy them straight from the fridge for a chilled and refreshing treat.

Avoid Moisture – To prevent any moisture from affecting the texture of your Chocolate Truffle Easter Eggs, make sure to store them in a dry environment. Avoid placing them near sources of heat or direct sunlight, as this can cause the chocolate coating to melt or become discolored.

By following these storage instructions, you can enjoy your Healthy Chocolate Truffle Easter Eggs for days or even weeks to come, ensuring that every bite is just as delicious as the first!

Can I make smaller or larger eggs?

Certainly! The size of the eggs is entirely up to you. You can make smaller eggs for bite-sized treats or larger eggs for a more indulgent dessert. Just keep in mind that the size may affect the overall yield and serving size of the recipe.

Can I add other ingredients to the filling?

Absolutely! Feel free to get creative and add additional ingredients to the filling mixture, such as chopped nuts, dried fruits, or even a sprinkle of sea salt for a sweet and salty flavor contrast. Just make sure to adjust the proportions accordingly to maintain the desired texture.

How can I make these eggs sweeter without adding refined sugar?

If you prefer a sweeter flavor without relying on refined sugars, you can add a natural sweetener like maple syrup, honey (if not strictly vegan), or date syrup to the filling mixture. Adjust the amount to suit your taste preferences.

Can I use different nut butters?

Yes, absolutely! You can experiment with different nut butters such as almond butter, cashew butter, or even tahini for a nut-free option. Each nut butter will impart its unique flavor and texture to the Chocolate Truffle Easter Eggs.
