Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs

image

I used to love eating Reese peanut butter eggs but they are full of sugar and other processed ingredients that I no longer put in my body. I made a healthy version of the Reese egg. No processed sugar and I used 85% dark cacao chocolate. I added peanuts and chopped chocolate to center as well. These are pretty simple to make but can be tricky with coating them … I usually have troubles but with patience you can get it done. Recipe below.

image

Recipe:

Ingredients:
•1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
•1/4 Cup Almond Butter
•2 Tbsp Coconut Oil + •1Tbsp to coat
•1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
•1/4 Cup Chopped Peanuts
•2 Tbsp Chopped Dark Chocolate or Chocolate Chips + •100g to Coat (appx. 1 Cup chopped I used Lindt 85% Cacao bar)

Method:
Combine peanut butter, almond butter, 2Tbsp coconut oil and maple syrup in saucepan just until heated to stir together, remove from heat set aside to cool. Chop your peanuts and chocolate and once peanut butter mixture is cooled stir in peanuts and 2 Tbsp chopped chocolate, stir until just combined.  Place mixture in fridge/freezer to cool slightly about 20 minutes. Using 2 spoons create egg shapes with the mixture and place onto parchment paper, repeat with remaining mixture and place back in freezer to keep cool while you start your chocolate. Alternatively you can use chocolate molds or roll and shape with your hands (using your hands you will have to work quick). Melt 100g chocolate in double boiler with 1 Tbsp coconut oil, let cool slightly before coating peanut butter eggs. Coat your eggs with the chocolate using fork and spoon and then place onto clean parchment paper and place in fridge to harden shell. Store in fridge. Makes approximately 12-16 eggs.

Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken

image

Last night’s dinner was amazing I decided to share with you all! Here’s what you’ll need➡

Serves 2

•2 Chicken breasts
•8 asparagus
•1/2 bell pepper, chopped
•1 lemon
•4 sprigs fresh thyme
•2 small sprigs rosemary
•1/4 cup mozzarella, shredded (omit for paleo)
•4 thinly sliced prosciutto
•Large Yam (optional side)

In small bowl combine bell pepper, thyme, mozzarella and half of lemon squeezed. Slice remaining lemon for stuffing.

Depending on your chicken breast you may have to slice down center and stuff that way, my chicken breast was quite thin so I was able to roll it with the stuffing in it.

Stuff one chicken with 1/2 mozza mixture, sprig of rosemary, 4 asparagus and lemon slice, roll it up and wrap it with prosciutto, tie together with cooking string, repeat for 2nd piece. Bake in preheated oven for 35-45min depending how thick your chicken is but just cook it until no longer pink. Serve with side of Yam or other side of choice. Enjoy ✌

Note: When eating chicken pull out sprig of rosemary and lemon slice unless you like the strong flavor. :mrgreen:
