Mother Butter Copycat Reese's Eggs

                     Mother Butter nut free gluten free vegan chocolate eggs

We love to take a classic and put an allergen-friendly Mother Butter spin on it! With Easter around the corner, it was time to take on Reese’s eggs. Mother Butter eggs are nut-free and vegan with only 5 simple ingredients. They are lightly sweetened with a bit of maple syrup, and coconut flour not only keeps these gluten-free but also gives the inside of the egg the right texture. This is a candy you can feel good about eating and sharing with the kids!
Make a few extra to store in the freezer - you’ll want to have them on hand regardless of season. 

Equipment: two small bowls, measuring cups, measuring spoons, spatula, spoon or fork, parchment paper, plate or baking sheet

Ingredients: makes around 8-10 small eggs 

  • ⅔ c Mother Butter
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour 
  • Pinch of salt
  • ⅔ c semisweet dark chocolate
  • 1 tsp coconut oil 


  • In one small bowl, mix together Mother Butter, maple syrup, coconut flour, and salt. 
  • Shape around 1-2 tablespoons of dough into egg shapes. Place on parchment lined plate or baking sheet.
  • Chill eggs in the freezer to firm up for around 30 minutes.When eggs are set, they can be dipped.
  • Melt chocolate and coconut oil together in a small bowl in the microwave in 20 second increments.
  • Using a fork or spoon, lower each egg one at a time into chocolate and flip to coat.
  • Put eggs back on the parchment lined plate or sheet.
  • Store in the freezer in a sealed container once set.


  • If the dough feels loose, add another teaspoon of coconut flour and stir to combine before adding any more. It absorbs fast!
  • Coconut flour is great for absorbing moisture, and it is difficult to swap. 
  • Dip the eggs in milk or white chocolate instead of dark. 
  • Honey can be used in place of maple syrup.
