    Paleo Easter Eggs - Low Carb and Gluten Free

    Post by Jan1 on Wed Mar 25 2015, 14:13


    I originally put this lovely recipe in MID Chocolate thread but thought I'd give it a thread post of its own!

    Libby at 'Ditch The Carbs' Blog has some lovely recipes. One I've copied and pasted is this:

    Paleo Easter Eggs

    " I have to say these are the easiest little things to make, and only takes 20 minutes until they are ready to eat. Paleo Easter Eggs are a tasty little treat with no added sugar, egg free, dairy free, grain free, nut free, gluten free little bundles of joy.

    Easter eggs these days seem to go on sale almost as soon as the Christmas decorations get packed away, and I for one was guilty of buying them way too soon, then buying more, and more. This year the Easter Bunny will still call here, but will be bringing the best quality chocolate it could find and just on Easter Sunday, not for the months and months they have been selling in the stores.

    Paleo Easter Eggs:
    Ingredients:
    75g/ 2.6 oz shredded coconut unsweetened
    70g/ 2.5 oz coconut oil melted
    3 tbs coconut cream
    1 tbs granulated stevia, or sweetener of choice, to taste
    ½ tsp vanilla

    Chocolate Coating:
    60g/ 2.1 oz coconut oil melted
    6 tsp cocoa powder
    2 tsp granulated stevia, or sweetener of choice, to taste

    Method - Instructions:

    Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
    Refrigerate until solid enough to roll into egg shapes.
    Roll small amounts into egg shapes and place in the fridge again to set completely.

    Chocolate Coating:
    Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
    Place 1 Paleo Easter Egg in the chocolate coating at a time. Using a spoon, turn the egg until completely covered.
    Place the chocolate coated eggs on a plate.
    Refrigerate until chocolate coating is set

    NUTRITION INFORMATION
    Serving size: 1 Paleo easter Egg Calories: 128 Fat: 13.4g Carbohydrates: 1.1g Sugar: 0.5g Fibre: 0.6g Protein: 0.9g "

    Can you believe Easter is less than two weeks away.

    I'm sure most readers know of Libby and her 'Ditch The Carbs' blog ... she comes up with some great recipe ideas.

    With Easter only being a short while away I thought you may be interested in seeing some Easter Recipe ideas.

    Well, with Christmas over ... the shops will be getting back to normal quite soon.
    Traditionally we will start seeing those Cadbury's Creme Eggs in the shops and soon after that the dreaded Chocolate Easter Eggs, with some blood sugar raising higher carb/sugar ingredients affraid

    Why not start looking for a lower carb alternative  Smile

    These are good, and can be eaten at any time of year, although I did see I originally posted it last year just two weeks before Easter  Exclamation
