Nutty “Cookie Dough” Easter Eggs

With a moreish nutty “cookie-dough” style centre, these chocolate eggs are insanely yummy.

Home-made Easter eggs are so much fun to make and can be so much healthier than the bought eggs. A perfect activity for your kids during the Easter holidays. Make well in advance of Easter and keep in the freezer.

Perfect if you need to make a delicious dairy-free, soya-free, refined sugar free or plant-based Easter treat. These also make lovely little freezer-raiders for any time of year – particularly for older kids and teens who are revising for exams.

Nutty “Cookie Dough” Easter Eggs

Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 55 minutes
Course Puddings, Snacks & Treats
Servings 4 people
Suitable for Special Diet (or adaptable) Dairy-free, Egg-free, Gluten-free, Nut-free, Vegan, Vegetarian



  • 100 g Cashew Nuts (soaked for at least 2 hours, and drained)
  • 85 g Raisins
  • 35 g Desiccated Coconut
  • 1.5 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 pinch Salt (I love pink himalayan salt)


  • 50 g Chocolate (of choice)
  • 0,5 tbsp Coconut Oil (ideally odourless, like Biona)


  • Blitz together the cashew nuts, raisins, desiccated coconut, vanilla extract and salt in a food processor for a minute until it starts to form a ball.
  • Roll into balls or egg-shapes and freeze on lined tray for at least 20 minutes to harden.
  • Melt the chocolate and coconut oil together in a mini saucepan.
  • Roll the nutty cookie-dough balls with 2 forks into the chocolate so they are evenly coated. Place back on the lined tray in the freezer for another 15-20 minutes to set and then transfer to a plastic bag or storage container.
  • Take out of the freezer a few minutes before serving, and serve in pretty papier-mâché or cardboard easter egg shells.


  • To speed up this recipe use cashew nut butter, almond butter or peanut butter.
  • Nut free: switch the cashews to oats or sunflower seeds
