Chocolate and Coconut Easter Eggs
Can you imagine Easter without Easter eggs? We think not!! These Chocolate and Coconut Easter Eggs are a tasty little treat – egg-free, dairy-free, grain-free, nut-free, gluten-free little bundles of joy, with no added sugar. Why we love this Chocolate and Coconut Easter Eggs recipe? Desiccated coconut makes a hearty, low-carb filling for these candied eggs. Coconut is high in good fats, but contains no cholesterol or trans fats while being rich in a number of essential nutrients, including dietary fiber, manganese, copper and selenium. We have replaced sugar with erythritol for this recipe, which is a naturally occurring alcohol during fruit fermentation. Its low GI value and low calorie profile makes it an excellent sugar-substitute for the occasional dessert on the LCHF diet. It has zero bearing on blood sugar and doesn’t lead to digestive distress.
