Easter, the time to eat all of the Chocolate, drink all of the booze, and fight with all of the family.
Oh, and there’s a big bunny, and something vaguely religious too I think..
Anyway, if you’re on a health kick and want to reduce your sugar and processed nonsense intake, or if you have an allergy to dairy or gluten (or just have an intolerance to delicious joyful food) then this is the recipe for you!
Plus as an added bonus, it’s cheap, easy, and looks fricken adorable!
Check it out!
Now lets be honest here, these bad boys are still full of fat and sugar, but the fat is coconut oil, which everyone knows is magical (Just a side note here for the mums: apparently a spoonful of it a day will kill threadworms and their evil, minuscule eggs, do NOT ask me how I know that little fact..!)
And the sugar, well I used maple syrup, and that comes from a tree so it’s totally fine obviously..
Plus it’s Easter and although it’s a time for miracles, asking for a gluten free, dairy free, genuinely healthy option that also tastes good, just aint gonna happen…
Here’s the miraculous recipe in all it’s Easter glory
Hollow plastic Easter eggs.
2 cups puffed rice (make sure it’s gluten/dairy free if necessary – that evil stuff lurks everywhere!
1/2 cup shredded cocnut (yep, I noticed the typo, but have decided to leave it for your enjoyment)
1/4 cup cacao powder (cocoa will do too, it’s still not bad for you)
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
maple syrup to taste
Step 1 Combine puffed rice, coconut oil coconut and cacao powder in a bowl. Add maple to taste. Mix until combined.
Step 2 Fill empty plastic egg containers with chocolatey deliciousness then refrigerate. I sprayed the egg moulds with olive oil (another superfood snuck in there!) but lets be honest here, you’re filling this little delicious nugget pretty much entirely with fat. I don’t think the oil is necessary.
Step 3 Take your chocolate snappy bubble morsels out of the moulds. Or leave them in. Or like me, leave half in, half out then pose artfully for a photo (protip: use blutac to hold them upright for photos)
Step 4 Move to Antartica, or eat your crackle eggs super fast, because coconut oil melts like a middle aged woman watching Jason Momoa emerging wet and glistening from a large body of water.
