You will love this fun, no-bake recipe for Oatmeal Peanut Butter Easter Eggs loaded with chocolate sunflower seeds. These cute energy bites are perfect for after school snacks or Easter morning treats!
How are you on this fine Spring morning? I’m good except for the part about FREAKING OUT that next week is spring break for my oldest! I’m sure we will be having lots of fun together, but I won’t be having lots of time for writing. I’ll be working double time this week to get ahead a little. When are your kids on spring break?
Speaking of Spring, do you believe Easter will be here before we know it? You may have noticed that I’m not always on top of things when it comes to holiday recipes, and cute foods aren’t really my specialty. In an effort to change that, I’m bringing you these adorable Oatmeal Peanut Butter Easter Eggs, which are a super easy no bake recipe. The whole family loved snacking on these, and they are a healthier dessert than your typical cookies because they are loaded with fiber and protein. Doesn’t this look healthy?
At first I was going to make these into little balls, which is quick and easy to do.
But then shaping them into little eggs seemed even cuter. It does take a bit longer to shape them all this way. (You could recruit your kids to help if they have mad Play-doh skills.)
I stirred in colorful chocolate-coated sunflower seeds, and they really made these extra special. The texture is a little crisp, and they add a nutty, chocolatey flavor (not to mention they look really pretty). I found the sunflower seeds at Trader Joe’s, and I have also seen them in little tubes at random places like Barnes and Noble. If you can’t find them, try mini M&M’s or mini chocolate chips instead.

Stir together oats, coconut, peanut butter, and honey until evenly combined. Very gently stir in sunflower seeds. Cover mixture and refrigerator at least an hour.
Using a small cookie scoop or teaspoon, scoop balls of oatmeal mixture and roll them into balls or mold them into eggs. Serve immediately, or place them in a container lined with parchment paper and cover. Store in refrigerator.
